He thought he was prepared to go to war with the Devil, but what if Satan’s not his true enemy?
Ever since the Devil donned a powerful amulet that allows him to walk the Earth, he has grown weaker—and so has his authority. As a result, mutiny is rising in Hell, and the Devil must fight to remain the king of the underworld. Little does he know, there is much more at stake than his title.
After the death of the nun who raised him and his best friend, Jordan Conway cannot think of anything but finding Sophia and keeping her safe. Luckily, he has a team of archangels on his side, and with their help, the two lifelong friends are reunited. But Jordan didn’t expect the reunion to include another of Sister Helen’s charges—the boy he’d loved like a brother but who had pushed him away, Dane. The three orphans never thought their lives would amount to much, but finding their way back to each other is leading them to finding out who they truly are.
All paths converge when the fourteenth sphere, a celestial object with a power like no other, appears at the Met. The angels must keep it from falling into the wrong hands, and soon, the lines between good and evil blur as they find themselves fighting alongside Satan to prevent the unleashing of a dark and dangerous force hell-bent on taking them all down. But in this world, nothing is as it seems, and the mysterious sphere is possibly the least of their concerns…
Get ready for another adventure as the three friends, and the angels they now consider family, travel the globe in search of a way to save each other—and the world.
It is rare that I enjoy a sequel book more than the first. The Revelation of Three sucked me in from the very beginning, and kept me hanging in until the very end. Satan’s chapters did not steal the show for me this time like in The Genesis of Seven. What I really enjoyed were the Sophia and Jordan chapters. They have really matured in this sequel and it was very enjoyable to watch their characters develop. I am always a fan of a little romance and Sara does not disappoint mixing in a sweet romance amidst the turmoil. The addition of Dane to the group added a nice dynamic. However, they have to figure out how he fits in to all of this. What is his purpose and who is he really. These kids have one thing after another thrown at them. Luckily they have the angels on their side. I loved the relationship between Jordan and the angels. they have definitely taken him in as one of their own, and it just extends to Sophia and Dane.
While the three kids struggle with figuring out exactly who they are .. Satan is having some battles of his own. Trying to regulate Hell and maintain control even though his power is waning, all the while another enemy is on the prowl. Who is the bigger threat? They may need to team up making unlikely allies to solve a bigger problem.
There were quite a few twists and turns that I did not see coming. Along with a cliffhanger of an ending, Sara takes the reader on quite the ride. I was delighted to receive this early copy and am looking forward to the final installment of The Empyrean Trilogy.
