This book lives up to its title in every way. The reader is drawn in from the beginning, and from there, it's a headlong plunge into the world of Lucinda Price. Beautifully written, with a colourful scope of characters, this book is a must for any lovers of the paranormal. The end will leave you literally begging for the sequel!
As a sequel to Fallen, this was well written and re-introduced us to the colourful cast of characters as well as some promising new ones. This is a love story with its ups and downs, its secrets and lies. Probably one of the most realistic romances I've read. The question is, can the lovers work through it? The listener is left with far more questions than answers at the end of this book, putting them in exactly the same frustrating situation as the heroine. The cliffhanger ending sets the scene up for the next instalment.
I only wish I could give this book a higher rating. Five stars doesn't seem nearly generous enough. Angel is the story of a group of beings who visit our Earth to feed off humans and bring death and disease in their wake, while convincing their victims that they're actually divine, loving beings. The scary thing is it's almost believable. Set against them our Alex, an AK (angel killer) and Willow, a half human half angel whom Alex has swarn to protect. This is the most origional fantasy I've read since Mortal Instruments. I thought no one could equal Jace, the hero of Mortal Instruments, but I think Alex might actually give him a run for his money. The interaction between the two main protagonists is brilliant and the unfolding romance is beautifully done. This book took me a little while to get into but once I did, I couldn't put it down. The book is billed as a young adult novel, but adults will love it too. This is the author's debut novel and all I can say is if she can do this good a job with her first book, then I can't wait for her second.
