Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Clandestine is a work of fiction in the fantasy, action and adventure sub-genres, and was penned by author Cynthia A. Morgan. Written for adult audiences due to some instances of explicit language usage, moderate violence, and sexual scenes, this novel forms the second book in the Mercy Series. Set in the distant future of the twenty-fifth century, the book focuses on Tzadkiel, the Archangel of Mercy, and Lourdes, the last merciful person amongst humankind. As the pair escape, they are still relentlessly hunted by a villain who would claim Lourdes as his own. What results is a high octane fantasy chase with plenty of action and a blossoming romance.

Author Cynthia A. Morgan has crafted a beautifully atmospheric fantasy piece that delivers on all fronts of storytelling. Readers seeking strong characters with realistically developed emotions will enjoy the central pair, who are put to the test in many exciting ways as the novel unfolds. For those who admire the worldbuilding elements of fantasy fiction, Morgan delivers a lavish world with beautiful word choices that highlight the supernatural characters and the very hellish villains that populate this dangerous future world. And for readers seeking a solid plotline, the work moves extremely well through peaks and troughs of action and emotional resonance, giving a fully rounded journey that they can accompany the heroes on and feel satisfied with for the second novel’s conclusion. Overall, I would recommend Clandestine to fans of the existing series, but also to readers looking to dive into an action-packed fantasy work that has it all.
