    1. This trilogy was the standout from a time in my life when I read a lot of fantasy, and I'm pleased to say that I thought it held up really well. Yes, it's sentimental, but it's also unpredictable and touches on some interesting philosophical issues.The first book is my favorite because I'm a little in love with Damiano, but I would recommend these books to anyone who enjoys light fantasy.

    4. I've let this review roll around in my head for a bit as I absorbed what it meant to me. This book was a hard read because it explored evil, both deliberate and casual. It explored love and responsibility as did the first two books in the series. It also looked at what it means to be apart from God, to not be able to hear Him in your life, to be separated from the music of heaven. Those are heavy themes, but this book handled them well.Sadly the Kindle version handled the transcription of the te [...]

    5. In this third book in the Damiano trilogy, MacAvoy shifts the entire thrust of the story to another character Raphael. At the time I thought it was a bad idea, but on further reflection, she may have had no where to go in the story of Damiano and needed another character to have the ultimate confrontation at the end of the book.

    6. While not as good as the first two, it explores what happens when an angel becomes so entangled in the lives of humans that he becomes more vulnerable to the plans of his brother. The old characters and a few new take part to find and rescue Raphael.

    7. The Archangel Raphael falls prey to his brother Lucifer who strips him of his angelic powers. Damiano and Saara and an ancient black dragon depart in a quest to save Raphael. Magical, mystical and fantastical.

    8. Satan makes a deal with Rafael to release the witch Saara, whom he is torturing.Satan strips Raphael of his wings and immortality; makes him a human, and sells him as a slave.

    9. Hmm. I rather don't like and do like the way MacAvoy ended this trilogy. Love the black dragon.

    10. Book 3 of the Damiano series, this was a fun, easy read.

    11. Not as good as the previous two books in the series.

    12. Again, not bad, but missable. The black dragon turns up. A feeling of NPCs battling it out amongst themselves while the puny humans cower.

    13. Without the music focus and the character of Damiano, the series unfortunately wanders off-track into just twee. Not a keeper.
