I can't quite put my finger on it but there was something about this novel that made it feel very different from Something Dangerous. I think it had something to do with the characters, though. As I begin to think about it I realize the characters seem different because we're looking at them in a new light. So no matter what order you read the books in, prepare for a bit of change. There was still something about No Angel that made it less enjoyable than Something Dangerous and think it's partially my fault for having read Something Dangerous first. Like I said some of the characters change and some are added or taken away. There also seemed to be a lot more lulls in the novel; a lot more times I found myself putting the book down out of boredom. That minor criticism aside, the book still had a lot going for it and was still a really good read. Vincenzi has a really nice way of showing the reader and not telling them. She doesn't rely constantly on long details and descriptions and instead lets the character, setting, situation, etc. speak for itself. One thing that was intriguing, that the book pointed out, was how much the publishing industry of the early 20th century is like the TV/movie business of today. The amount of promotion and effort that went into it was really interesting. And it reminds you of how reading and books used to be one of the top forms of entertainment. And even though I'm probably preaching to the choir, it makes you wish it could be that way again.
