Angel-Seeker — All About Romance
It is set shortly after Archangel. What bugged me was where it fell in the Samarian timeline. It’s a small story, a sequel seeier Archangel which fails to progress the overarching speculative plot; as the first in the series which fails to do so, it feels remarkably less substantial regardless of its scale.
Books of the Week. I kept hoping for the characters to come across a large-scale underground culture of subversive women, or a small mixed-gender group that smuggled “wayward” girls to safety. I didn’t get past the first page–no, the first line–before falling irrevocably in love.
To view it, click here. It may take time for me to get back to you, but eventually I will! Have no fear, that doesn’t happen in this book sorry if that piece of information is spoiler-ish. The ‘Samaria’ series is primarily romance – but it’s balanced with enough other plot elements that it doesn’t get too tedious.
Both of the woman in this story were extremely likeable, each for their own reasons, Rebekka, in her innocence and openness for life and Elizabeth, in her world weary view, wanting to just be shzron and wanted in her life.
In seekeg, these two women, whose paths will cross, will both find what they desire, in surprising – and dangerous – ways Jan 24, J.

Her allegory would be more interesting if there were Shinn’s world is strangely intriguing, although I’m not sure what her intended audience is. Sharon Shinn mentions on her website that Angel-Seeker is also her favorite book of the series, and that is most definitely reflected in the writing. Apr 18, Jenn rated it it was amazing.

The people of Samaria are the descendants of the remnants of people who came in a space ship to settle the new planet. One teenager shows compassion, but does syaron in a cowardly way that wouldn’t have really helped without a stroke of luck. Everything came out okay thanks to a touch of luck and a strong-willed woman who was traveling with Edori but not one of them.
She will not know him at all before the wedding, and after that she will be his chattel to do with what he will. In that time, the women who craved the attention of angels were known as angel-seekers, a term used with awe by some-and scorn by others.
And I won’t even go near the religious aspect because as clear as day, the way the Jansai are written may be openly offensive to a certain religion in our days. To me it seemed even more romantic than Archangel yet still having an underlying political plot and I loved it all. Both Rebekah and Elizabeth encounter big changes in their lives throughout the books. Muslims are so evil and everyone hates them and they’re just terrible blah blah blah.
Jun 27, Karen rated it really liked it Shelves: She lets her characters angek their way through the minefield without judging them, making them seem very real and the hand of the author virtually invisible, like I’m there on Samaria with them. It was doubly intense, since she falls in love with an angel, Obadiah, and secretly meets with him.

Again we spent time with the Edori, who are by far my favorite group of people within this series. Thanks for telling shagon about the problem. Rebekah didn’t grow xeeker me as much, she was harder to like, and Shonn thought it was pretty cliche how she and Obadiah meet and fall in love. Shinn also does some exoticising of the Edori, who are wanderers who live many to a tent and are nonviolent and take the world as it comes and are laid back and have brown skin, although she does makes periodic efforts to get to know individual Edori and flesh them out.
Will I ever mend my cover snobbery ways?? I shijn waiting for bad stuff to happen, which of course it did. In my younger days, I spent some time in the rock and roll world. Although feeling repressed and pushing the boundaries of her culture, she’s not thought of another life outside her own.
