Requiem by Jamie McGuire

(Providence Series book 2)

“Jared paced, brooded, and once in a while, when his thoughts were particularly tormented, he winced. The color had long left his face as he played back the different scenarios in his mind. Back and forth he paced, so many times that I watched the floor, wondering when he would wear a trail. His inner turmoil could have set the room on fire. It was unbearable to watch, but I couldn't leave him; not when he was planning my death.”

Dreaming of the dead might mean a restless night for anyone, but for Nina Grey it was a warning.

Still healing from her last run-in with Hell, Nina struggles with not only her life as a Brown University student, but also as an intern at Titan Shipping, her father's company. Recurring nightmares about her father's violent death have become a nightly event, but being overwhelmed with guilt from Ryan's unexpected departure to the Armed Forces, and heart ache over Claire being across the ocean to protect him, Nina believes her sleepless nights are the least of her problems—but she's wrong.

Worried about Nina's declining health, Jared must steal back Shax's book for answers. Fighting new enemies, and with the help of new friends, Jared's worst fear comes to fruition. Desperate, he is faced with a choice: Fight Hell alone, or start a war with Heaven. Description

My thoughts;  Firstly I want to say HA!! Well, it isn't exactly officially appropriate for my HA, but well I felt a preemptive HA was in order. Did I say HA??? I so want to do my "told ya so" dance. Because I feel I was so right on the money about who Ryan will be with. HA, oh wait I said that already. Ok, moving on......

Now, for the matter at hand. I do believe that I may have actually died a few times while reading Requiem. First, Nina gets the letter from Ryan. Then Jared gets the phone call from Claire. Then the dreams continue. And then the "revelation" about *edited for spoiler issues*. And then ahhh at the place, and holy geez, and then when they are waiting on gasp..................  I could go on like this forever but I will spare you my insanity. *giggles* When I read Providence I expressed my love for McGuire's storytelling. She has once again captured me from page one. LOVE!! Can't wait to read the conclusion of this series. I am quite certain my heart will be in my throat and then stomach and then throat again.... you get the idea.

Happy Reading!! :-)


  1. Just read Beautiful Disaster and I really liked it. Requiem sounds very different but just added it to my list of books to read soon

    1. Yes it is very different. But I have decided, if McGuire writes it, I will read it. I love her
