Firstly, I should say that the attention to detail in this book is every bit as good as in the first - there is still good artwork within the book, and ...moreI was really excited when I got asked if I'd like a review copy of the second book in the series. I enjoyed The Angels are Here but I had loads and loads of questions after finishing the book, which I assumed would be answered further in the story - and let's just say that in Progeny of Innocence, a lot of my questions were answered.
Firstly, I should say that the attention to detail in this book is every bit as good as in the first - there is still good artwork within the book, and it really does add a nice touch to the story. I know looks aren't everything, but it can certainly help!
Secondly I should say that I enjoyed Grace a lot more as a character in this book than in the previous. She's no longer a little girl, which made her much more relatable for me, and it's also gradually becoming more clear why exactly she's so special, and why she needs protection. Obviously in this review I'm trying not to give too much away, but there are definitely new dimensions added to Grace's character.
I also appreciated Angela more in this book, and I liked the continuity of her character. Roberts clearly hasn't forgotten what made Angela so interesting to her readers, and she definitely provides some comic relief when needed, even when she's clearly not trying to.Read more ›
A bit reminiscent of Twilight except the sun shines and the baddies are evil warriors from another planet, not vampires (even though they leave "puncher" marks on their virginal victims.). The goodies seem to be warriors from Fantasy World X too. Some characters are aliens pretending to be human and vice versa. It's not entirely clear, and hard to care.
Lots of characters but lacking in characterisation - the author names lots of teens but provides little detail, possibly because they are all going to die in mysterious fires, demonic hound attacks and magical sword incidents. This sort of thing might work better as a soap opera - it fails as a novel. It doesn't help that this is volume 2 in a series

Grace also discovers boys and is attracted to Damon, one of the Goths. One day in class she feels utterly compelled to kiss him. Angela has her doubts about him as he is one of the goths/Grigorians, but is he as evil as they are? Then a Pizza delivery boy Riley catches her eye and she has a spooky feeling she has known him before. I think book 3 will have a very interesting love triangle. I’m glad Angela still has a big role next to Grace; her cool head saves the day on a few occasions.
The story is at times complex as we learn a lot more about the world of Aquila and its inhabitants. There are many magical creatures and we just get just a look into this world. Also on earth we get introduced to a lot of new characters as we follow Grace and her school days. There are still many mysteries to be solved and loose ends to be tied up. The second book ends on a great cliff-hanger, so I ran straight to Amazon to buy part 3. There is no gratuitous sex or swearing, but some of the descriptions are gruesome, so not suitable for a very young adult.

Written with a YA audience in mind, but there's plenty there to hook the older reader. This is a good urban fantasy/paranormal novel. Read morePublished on 4 Nov. 2013 by Rachael J. Thorne
