Savannah was murdered on her wedding day but is given a unique opportunity to become death’s assistant. Gabriel the Guardian of Death is one of three that helps maintain the balance of humanity. Gabriel has been hurt in the past and has no intention of falling for his beautiful new assistant, despite his future sister-in-law’s matchmaking attempts, but with soul hunters, a demon curse and a murderous sibling after her will Savannah survive long enough to help Gabriel find love again?

This book took an interesting turn for being the second in a series. Despite the entire cast of characters that were introduced in the first book, this second of the series introduces a whole new set of people. It’s a little off putting at first but I quickly got interested in Savannah and Gabriel’s story. However, this book doesn’t work well as a stand alone because there are a lot of recurring characters and plot points from Divine Touch.  A lot of what was great about the start of this series reappeared in Divine Intervention, for example the characters were very entertaining and relatable, and the environment is full of the mystical. The world has expanded in this book and the focus has shifted off of the Goddesses to Death and his brothers and how they fit into the scheme of things. Divine Intervention was a somewhat darker world than Divine Touch with the introduction of demons, vampires, and the Shadow King. Overall this book keeps up consistently with the previous book but I found the ending a little disappointing with the concluding battle, but I would still recommend it as a great read.
