While each novel is a stand-alone, they are part of a series and as such are best read in order.

Now we're talking. "A Diamond in my Heart" is a much tighter book than "A Diamond in my Pocket". Angell has cracked the code to the flow. Flowing demands a lot of an author and is probably not always a fun process. As with "A Diamond in my Pocket" I like the cover of "A Diamond in my Heart". I don't know if it was intentional, but the print in my copy was a little strange at times. It would change type and parts of it was highlighted.

Calli still has the shard of diamond lodged in her heart. That shard enables her to do things like read minds when she concentrates, read emotions, heal, run fast and hunt. For her abilities to blossom completely Calli will need to have the whole diamond lodged in her heart. I found that Callie had grown as a person. There is less angst and more acceptance of life as it is.

Calli's side-kick is Brand. Brand is a horny senior whose main goal in life seems to be to have sex with every girl on the planet - at least every girl he encounters. He is the quarterback so that should help. But you would think not all girls would fall for whatever lines he uses. Strangely enough they do and the other guys at school are not happy with. Calli doesn't get it and when she doesn't fall for Brand's lines they end up becoming friends. For some bizarre reason I loved him. I hope he turns up in the next novel as well.

Calli's mentor is Mathea (from A Diamond in my Pocket). Mathea helps Calli understand the responsibilities that come with being a diamond bearer. Turns out they are supposed to keep the world in balance. We get some background information on Mathea. She sure is one strange cookie.

Calli's enemy is Freedom. Freedom is a previous follower of Mathea who is now out to get Calli's diamond for himself. He is a diamond bearer but no longer a follower of Mathea's circle of diamond bearers. This is one seriously messed up dude. His sociopathic traits are fairly strong.

This time I thought the novel was too short. Angell kept me reading and her twists and take on her world was interesting. I like the fact that she has little or no previous experience with fantasy before writing these two novels. It doesn't show, but then fantasy is about so much more than the flashy stuff. For those of you who worry about anything explicit be it violence or sex you can safely read these two novels.

Once I read the first book in the series, I had to read the rest. It is an interesting premise of superhumans amongst us but with a twist. I read the series back to back. One tip however, check out the "boxed set", this can be cheaper than buying each book one by one. It won't disappoint. Look forward to reading other books by Lorena Angell.

Carries on the series well, although we do seem to be heading down a bit of a depressing route. At the rate they die it's a bit of a surprise any cosmic ones still exist.

Not sensational, but a perfectly pleasant undemanding read.
