Requiem by Jamie McGuire (Providence #2)

Dreaming of the dead might mean a restless night for anyone, but for Nina Grey, it was a warning. Still healing from her last run-in with Hell, Nina struggles with not only her life as a Brown University student, but also as an intern at Titan Shipping, her father's company. Recurring nightmares about her father's violent death have become a nightly event, but being overwhelmed with guilt from Ryan's unexpected departure to the Armed Forces, and heart ache over Claire being across the ocean to protect him, Nina believes her sleepless nights are the least of her problems—but she's wrong. Worried about Nina's declining health, Jared must steal back Shax's book for answers. Fighting new enemies with the help of old friends, Jared's worst fear comes to fruition. Desperate, he is faced with a choice: Fight Hell alone, or start a war with Heaven.
Initial Thoughts:
I liked the first book in the trilogy, Providence, so I thought I would give the sequel a go.

The relationship between Jared and Nina grows and strengthens.

Not only does this book continue the romance story line of the first book, it definitely adds a mystery story line as well. Double the intrigue!

This book deals a lot more with the Ryel family. We get to know Jared's brother Bex a lot better in this book, and I really like him. He starts out as the cutie younger brother, but really steps up to the plate as a protector. Jared's sister Claire is one of the most kick ass literally females I have ever come across. 

The revelation of who Claire's Taleh is was shocking.

Nina was annoying in some parts of this book. She asked some stupid questions and came off demanding.

Her internship didn't really add anything to the story line. It just made it look like she had something to do during her summer off.

The typos continued from the first book. Using "shuttered" instead of "shuddered", missing letters in words, etc. As a spelling stickler, it drew my attention away from the book.

Nina's mom is quite annoying. She seems hell bent on being a problem and not providing any information to those who need it.

The Wrap Up: 4/5
The sequel was a good follow up to Providence. It explained a lot more in detail that you were left wondering at the end of book one, and provided more questions to be answered in the final book. Once again, I liked it enough to read the third and final book in the trilogy.

Favorite Quote:
"Claire freed him, and then lifted Ryan to his feet. She pushed back his head to inspect his wound, overly rough. 'You'll live". Ryan winced. 'Thanks, Honey, I love you too.'"
