1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Rosemary Bailey Brown on May 17 2004
Format: Hardcover
I have read, enjoyed and even highly recommended Shinn's other Angel-series books to others. So, I was stunned by how dreadful this one was. In past novels Shinn thinly veiled two of her planet's tribes -- one group were obviously arabs, and another group gypsy/jews. This novel tells the stories of two young women, one who is suppressed and almost killed by the arab-look-alikes, and the other who finds redemption in the arms of a jew-look-alike. The former is presented as a one-sided, nightmarish, diatribe against everything Arab you can imagine. The men are fat, greedy, self-centered, and oppressive. The women are denied basic human rights, confined to harem-like areas, hidden beyond veils, stoned to death if they disobey. Shinn obviously has a complete lack of respect for cultures other than her own. Rather than using fiction to bring insight into our own world, she uses it to spread bigotry. In this age of global conflict, we need and deserve greater knowledge, not kneejerk, uneducated passions.

This book makes a great beach book. It follows each of the three narrators for a chapter or so at a time, providing the reader with plenty of places to stop without hurting the suspense. There is significantly less political and religious debate in this book than in the previous Samaria novels; instead, Shinn focused on the differences and similarities between two supposidly powerless women, Elizabeth and Rebekah, and the methods they use to affect their lots in life.
GENERAL PLOT:
Elizabeth, a pampered Mandavvi daughter turned ignored, embittered servent, takes a laundress job at the Angel hold of Cedar Hills in the hopes that she can catch the eye of an angel. Instead her hard work earns her the attention of a proment doctor who wants to train her as an assistant - a more satisfying and dignifying job than that of angel-seeker but one that has much less job security than that of the mother of an angel.
Rebekah is an opinionated Jansai daughter about to be married off. Shinn is not very subtle in her distain for any culture that would cut women off from ouside contact and the Jansai life comes off sounding like Afghanistan under the Taliban. Rebekah's mildly discontent at her lot in life but can't imagine a different one. She rebels in small ways by arguing with her mother, sneaking out of her compound, and raising her younger brother to be kind and respectful to the women he will have complete authority over one day.
Obadiah is an angel recently sent to Cedar Falls as an ambassador to the Jansai at Breven. He is lonely and frustrated to find that he has little standing or authority among the Jansai. When he is attacked and injured flying between Breven and Cedar Hills, he makes an emergency landing 3 miles from Rebekah's caravan.

This is an outstanding book. My favorite in the series is still Archangel, but Angel Seeker is not far behind in the page-turner department. This book also has the single most romantic scene I've ever read. Encore, Ms. Shinn!

I will keep this brief as the synopsis by other reviewers doesn't need repeating. I have read all of Sharon Shinn's "Angel" books so far. This is second in time sequence and is one of the best of the after Archangel. I liked them all but this one had a far bigger emotional impact on me than any of the other stories. I hope that Sharon Shinn does more in the time period of Angelica or Archangel/Angel Seeker as I have found them the most interesting. The Angel characters and their role in this world are just fascinating.

"Angel-Seeker" is the story of two women of Samaria. Elizabeth is a young woman who has lost all of her close family and yearns to recreate the security she knew as a child. At the first opportunity, she moves to new angel hold at Cedar Hills, hoping to attract an angel and bear an angel child, as she will then have a place forever. Rebekah is a Jansai woman who is preparing for her upcoming marriage. She encounters an angel who needs her help, tends him, and, gradually, they fall in love.
As other reviewers have mentioned, this story has several familiar themes, especially to "Jovah's Angel." It was nice to see familiar characters again. The theme of the wild young woman finding contentment with an Edori lover is somewhat overdone, although I found Elizabeth to be much more likeable and interesting than either Miriam (Angelica) or Delilah (Jovah's Angel). In fact, I found Elizabeth to be one of Shinn's more interesting and sympathetic characters, as she seems to grow and change throughout the book. Rebekah seemed a bit more passive and certainly somewhat cavalier regarding her own safety - and the potential disgrace she was bringing upon her family. If she is willing to risk all to take an angel lover, surely it would have occurred what risks she was running. She seems imaginative - I would have liked to see her chafe more at her restrictions and wonder more what it would be like to be born into a different type of family. Her reluctance to leave Breven (and her willingness to honor her betrothal) seem odd to me. Jordan was a wonderful character, one of my favorites - and the freeing of the Jansai women and seeing the Jansai men get theirs was a terrific scene. Delightful.
I do hope that Ms.
