see if I would like to review the second book in The Archangel Prophesies
trilogy – Dark Rising. I, of
course, said yes! If you are interested
in reading my review of the first book in the trilogy, Dark Hope, you can find
Hope left off. Hope is on the run
with the Archangel Michael, who is sworn to protect Heaven at all costs, but he

as well, where they could care less about Hope’s life.
I can’t wait to read the third installment! If you are interested in learning more about The Archangel Prophesies and Monica McGurk,
you can find her on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. She also has an amazing amount of information on human trafficking on her website, of which she is clearly very passionate about.
