Jun 27, Karen rated it really liked it Shelves: I liked him in the first book also and his love story is the only redeeming quality I found here. This book takes place shortly after the events of Archangel, although I believe Sharon Shinn wrote it after she wrote books that take place later – and I’m really glad she came back to the time period to write it!

This is the 5th book in the Samria series, but the story actually takes places just after the 1st book Archangel. Now I write about management education and interview some really cool, really smart people from all over the world.

Refresh and try again. Angel babies are rare, and most mortal babies produced from these unions are abandoned. These are two groups of women who are very different from each other but similarly maligned and emotionally or physically desperate – women people in Samaria just don’t hear from, because they don’t listen to them.

Where there are angels there are always angel-seekers, mostly women who’s ambition is to give birth to an angel baby and thus forever secure a place in the hold. That is until she meets injured angel Obadiah and begins to live a double life.

She believes she is meant for greater things. And I won’t even go near the religious zharon because as clear as day, the way the Jansai are written may be openly offensive to a certain religion in our days. I chose to read this book after Archangel because the events in it are set right after those in Archangel despite this being shron 5th book in the series. Sent away to deal with a group of people that no one can understand, let alone reason with, he resigns himself to being just the happy-go-lucky friend.


The other problem is, Elizabeth’s story is good, but it pales – and seems shallow – in comparison to Rebekah’s story. These woman are motivated most often by the wealth of the angel holds but many of them are just angel groupies. For a while, I sent a few out on spec, but never made any sales.

He falls shin love with Rebekah very quickly, for reasons that are somewhat inadequately explained, and then spends the rest of the book trying to deal with the intricacies of Jansai society that he previously dismissed as simplistic, barbaric, and cruel. Again, more depth could’ve been used there as well– a little bit more social science in the worldbuilding, maybe?

She tends for him until he is well enough to fly on. Until she finds a wounded ang Of the Samaria books this one is most easily read as a standalone as the action and romance mostly isn’t connected to the larger worldbuilding that is going on in this series.

I worried so much over how Obadiah would fare out on his own, without the friends he loved.

Compared to the others, Angel-Seeker is so full of life. She has created a complex world with fully defined ethnic, socio-economic, and cultural groups.

And when I heard when it took place and who the main character was, I knew it would rock my world.

Elizabeth goes to Cedar Hills seeking a better life, to be close to art and culture and money. To ask other readers questions about Angel-Seeker syaron, please sign up. The people of Samaria are the descendants of the remnants of people who came in a space ship sharn settle the new planet.

Determined to change her life for National bestselling author Sharon Shinn returns once more to the planet of Samaria, where men and angels live under the watchful eye of the god Jovah, in this richly romantic tale, which begins where Archangel left off.



Life is hard and mostly pastoral, and young women with no family or ties dream of producing an ‘Angel Baby’ to insure they will have a place to live and be taken care of for the remainder of their lives. It wouldn’t have bothered me at all if I hadn’t been doing a Samaria marathon, though. So her story arc is about discovering that “safe” is not worth it when rights are being violated.

Have no fear, that doesn’t happen in this book sorry if that piece of information is spoiler-ish.

Angel-Seeker — All About Romance

Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Samaria Series If all romance books were like these, I might consider myself to be a fan of romance novels in general. Throughout Archangel the angels sneeringly talk about the angel-seekers — the camp followers of the Samarian world.

Angelica The Archangel Gaaron has his life mate picked out for him by Jovah. I wanted to learn more things about Samaria and more about dynamics between angels and humans but there are still three more books in the series.

It’s a small story, a sequel to Archangel which fails to progress the overarching speculative plot; as the first in the series which fails to do so, it feels remarkably less substantial regardless of its scale. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The lack of music as well as emotional depth mars Shinn’s otherwise engaging, romance-filled tale of strong, capable women, the fifth entry in her popular Samaria series.

Rebekah knows she should ignore him. It may take time for me to get back to you, but eventually Sharln will!
