Format: Paperback
Fast-paced and stylistically intense, An Occupation of Angels is pseudo-paranormal spy story set in a world where angels came to Earth ending World War II. Killarney is a secret agent first assigned to assassinate an archangel, then tasked with discovering who's really behind the systematic slaying of the angels of the world. Could it be Nazis?

Tidhar's style is urgent and wickedly ironic. This is a religious study with little religion, a spy story with Nazi conspiracies, but not like the other books on the shelf. One can't help thinking Killarney herself is something different too, as they travel through her head in this world-spanning short novel. An Occupation of Angels is a great, vivid story perfect for libraries looking for something unique. It's taste won't be up all readers alley's, but it's a standout example of fantasy fiction.

A bit cheesy at the end however was a nice good spy-like romp of fun. If you have fun playing those thinly storied FPS computer games such as Doom 3 and Quake, it's got that kind of campy feel to it.

The only problems I had was keeping the characters straight and keeping the settings in mind. The main character herself has three different aliases.

I'm also glad this book isn't one I wanted to throw across the room. It doesn't like to use shock language like other books would. Though, the comparing human/thin = good and large/obese = bad did give a good record scratch while I was reading.
