A Sacred Pact: Wow, that was a disappointment.

A Sacred Pact (War of the Angels, #1) by Michael Todd, Laurie Starkey & Michael Anderle
My rating: ⭐ ⭐ out of 5 stars

coverThe War of the Angels has begun, and Hell hath no idea of the fury they have unleashed.

Katie has decided that too many people are trying to play with power instead of doing what is right.

Does she bite off more than she can chew when she makes a statement that upsets the World Council?

Even the general is at a loss. However, with Pandora on her side, who is going to win if they argue with them?

Whether it is possible or not, plenty try.

How much of what Katie does is due to her recent heartache?

In the end, the enemy steps up their efforts to bring down these sisters in heart and deed. Do they finally have the answer? 

Others need legal documents, these two women have a Sacred Pact. The World is in Good Hands…

Ok, one set of good hands, one set of mischievous hands.

This is the first book in the third series about Katie, the daemon … and the angel. I think the first thing that comes to my mind when starting this review is the saying “too many cooks…”. There are no less than three authors listed on this book and, unfortunately, the book was actually a bit of a disappointment.

I do not think Michael Anderle himself did much of the writing to be honest but still, three authors for something that is not an anthology (and I do not like those much either by the way) is at least one too much in my opinion.

Sure the book has a lot of the good stuff in there. Katie, Lilith, bantering, ass-kicking and so on and so forth. However, at the end of the last series I was quite thrilled. Not only is Katie and angel, or at least a half-angel, but Lilith sprouted angel wings and did some series angelic ass-kicking as well. I hoped for good things to come in this series.

Unfortunately, in their first encounter with some new supernatural entity both of them just fall flat on their arses. Disappointing.

What is worse though and which is my main gripe with this book is the (re)introduction of political asswipes. I though that stuff was over and done with when the General and Katie wacked the previous bunch of assholes but apparently not. Now we got another shithead playing political games trying to screw over the savior of humanity for their own fucking benefit. Not only that but, to add insult to injury, the add lawyers as well. I just wanted to fast-read through every page with this crap in it. I so hate that stuff as you might deduce from my choice of words here.

The rest of the book is, well, not bad but I get a feeling that it is jumping around quite a lot with various sub story arcs. The maybe it was just me getting so pissed off with the political asswipe crap that I did not really pay attention to the rest of the book.

As I wrote, this book was a pretty big disappointment. I think I have to calm down a bit before trying the next installment in the series.
