Review: Iron Angel by Alan Campbell (Deepgate Codex #2)

Iron Angel by Alan Campbell   (Deepgate Codex #2)

From the back of the book

After a destructive battle, the ancient city of Deepgate has been overtaken.  Most of the chains that suspend it have given way, and the temple now dangles upside down above the once-uncharted abyss.  The victorious Spine have initiated martial law and are ruthlessly tempering all survivors.  But amid the turmoil, two captives are returned: the young angel Dill, now toughened by war, and traitor assassin Rachel Hael.  Incarcerated in the crumbling temple, the prisoners await their fate – while ghosts rise through the abyss from the open gates of Hell.  But as the city teeters on the brink, plans for vengeance are set in motion.  And in the coming battle between gods, it is the world of men that is at stake.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

Bookshelf: Yes

How I Got It: Bought


I enjoyed this a little more than the first in this series.  There’s definitely more action.  There’s also more plot twists, and at certain points where I felt totally lost.  I think it may have been trying to keep track of all the different characters and their associated plots and subplots.  If you liked Dill, then you’re in for a treat because I felt like a lot of this book was about him. Rachel fans don’t worry, it sound’s like God of Clocks is going to be her shining moment. Unfortunately Scar Night was Carnival’s moment in the spotlight, so don’t be too disappointed she’s not a main character.  If you enjoyed Scar Night, I would definitely recommend continuing with this next installment.
