The series, part 3
Christina Siapika writes
The work Code Archangel is a modern novel full of exaggerations but also large doses of truth. The series consists of five stories that act in parallel, with the heroes of each story unfolding their character and their weaknesses through their role. They are addictive stories that flood action and that ultimately turn passion into need and love into sacrifice.
The door to the VMA world opened with the book The Family – The Story of Damon Colt and Eva De Miller. As an introduction, the plot is based exclusively on the eccentric Damon, leader of the Family gang, operating in the underworld. Involved in drugs, weapons and illegal speed racing, Damon is in control of what belongs to him. One of them, he thinks, is her … Eva. Or maybe not;
The book Family could be considered independent. It explains a lot about the structure of VMA and while leaving some unanswered questions at the same time, reading its last page the reader could feel complete.
The second part of the series gives a different extent to the plot, takes us one step further or better, one step further. Love focuses on two heroes who, while mentioned in the first book, however, no one can imagine what they are hiding, what they did or how much they suffered during the same time period in which the story of Damon and Eva unfolded. In Love, Lyon Fimmel – Damon’s right hand man – is a mentally scattered man who, while he wants to put his life in order, the way he has learned to act, in the underworld environment, destroys him worse. Juliet Black looks like an exception to a number of women who, while Lyon would like to be respected, ultimately lags behind in manner. Two different worlds will unite and will not stop colliding until the last page of the book.
The more love unites the Family, the more it hurts in its passage.
In the book Love the epilogue hurts the reader in a unique way. With an anxiety for the sequel and an introduction for the next.
Third part, Debt, and nothing is hidden. While a whirlwind of revelations has emerged in the first two books, the reader knows what the coded words mean: Code, Archangel, Family, knows what VMA means, who is behind it, who controls it and why. And while it has come to terms with the basic concepts, through the previous stories, the wolf comes to star in the details.
Leighton Cross becomes a member of the Family and is the only one who does not play but is a cold-blooded killer. His logic, closed in boxes. It has order, final goal, priorities. A former prison guard, he is not as interested in his freedom as in his brother’s life. He does not like to obey orders for this and the more he tries to execute them the more he sinks into his mistakes. He is tough, absolute and while he knows how to fall in love, at the same time he knows that in his own freedom there is no “tomorrow”. So, keeping them at a distance around him, he has learned to protect himself … not to hope. Rosalyn Giscard is the girl he must protect in order to keep his agreement with those who have given him his temporary freedom. With those who promised him his brother’s safety.
Based on references in previous books, the heroine shows a superficial as well as indifferent character. In fact, Rosalyn is camouflaged to hide her true identity. Element that the reader is informed from the very first chapter of the book. Rosalyn, the daughter of one of the three founders of the VMA, is fighting for her own freedom, which is not comparable to Leighton prison but has harsh conditions on a huge list of musts and rules.
The two heroes have met again in the past and as a matter of fact, it is the only random event in the history of Code Archangel. Everything else is predetermined by the central founder who moves the threads, even when his Archangels deviate from his orders.
Leighton and Rosalyn represent black with white, yes with no, now with everything.
And while Leighton looks and acts right — always based on his logic — Rosalyn is ultimately a source of strength.
A girl is hiding in the shadow of the wolf.
Rosalyn will not try to tame Leighton or change him. She will fall in love with him for what he is and when the time comes she will give him something that he has not even admitted to himself that he missed.
Her debt? to respect his own. Proof of her love
Debt: his family. Proof of their devotion.
The wolf and the cardigan, as many heroes know, are the force that brings the complete overthrow of the VMA regime. A strong exception to the most basic rule.
Because unfortunately, a death is always the beginning of respect for life.
