In Marcia Meara’s second instalment of The Emissary Trilogy, a Riverbend spinoff series of novellas, we find our three heroes at it again. Beautiful new places, exciting new adventures, and a whole assortment of new problems await them, bringing tears, laughter, and an extraordinary amount of love along with them.
Not all sweetness and light this time, as Azrael gets serious about equipping both Jake and Dodger for their job of helping souls in trouble.
I loved the chapter about the training session, and how Dodger and Jake reacted to the new strong-arm tactics.
I loved everything about this book just as I did in the first of the series.
The way Dodger tries to cope with his insecurities, and Jake’s capable and patient attitude. Azrael had me laughing, he tried hard not to lose it as he struggled to get his point across to these very different personalities.
You never really imagine an angel getting cranky, now do you?
The missing element between Jake and Dodger, always a possible father-son relationship, really gets going in this book. I found it beautifully written and very emotional as I never got to know my own father.
Altogether though, I thought they made a great team as they travel around the country, helping us mortals keep on the straight and narrow.
A subtle reminder that some of us in this world can’t be helped, but wouldn’t it be wonderful to know someone cares enough to try!
