This book started out interesting. A research looking into lost cities, especially those that angels might have had contacted. But then the story takes a weird turn that I don’t know if flowed well in the book. It seemed strange but that might have been what the author was hoping for since this is a book in a series. The point of view throughout the chapters changes so sometimes knowing what is happening can get a little confusing. I felt that the main character was weak and honestly gave up more times than not. Even with the strong male characters, they even seem to give up. The writing was good, but I just feel lost in the story.
