5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding and Original Story, November 1, 2011
This review is from: Avenger's Angel: A Novel of the Lost Angels (Mass Market Paperback)
It is extremely difficult to come up with a plot which is truly original, which is why so many books are instantly forgettable. However, here the author has written a story which is quite unique and which makes for a fascinating read. For the first couple of pages I was thinking that this all seemed a bit weird. By about page 20 I was hooked and I remained that way throughout.

The tale concerns the four archangels, Uriel, Michael, Azrael and Gabriel. They each have soul mates, or archesses, who are somewhere on earth and the archangels, about two thousand years ago, chose to live on earth so that they could seek them out. The first archess, Eleanore, is discovered and then it is up to Uriel to win her and protect her from others who are also interested in her. These include Samael, the fallen one, otherwise known as the devil - but hey, you definitely get the impression that whilst he has his sinister moments, and despite the bad press he gets he is really not all bad!

The climax of the book is quite frenetic and definitely of page turning intensity. There is a strong hint towards the end that a second archess has been located which appears to be a lead in to the next book in the series. I think a lot of the charm of this book is in the way the author has dealt with the archangels. Being such ancient beings created by God, one might expect them to be constantly making rather profound statements in rather archaic language. However, far from that they come across as very contemporary and, in many ways despite their powers, very human. They are certainly not averse to the odd profanity when speaking which is certainly not very angelic! They are also very different and interesting characters and have quite distinct personalities and abilities.

So, best to suspend disbelief and start reading because once you have got into this book there is a very high chance that you will really enjoy it. This is a heady mix of drama, romance, suspense and action which the author handles very well. Apparently Messengers Angel is lined up for publication in the middle of next year to be followed by Deaths Angel. As Gabriel was the messenger angel and Azreal, the angel of death I would presume that these books will deal with finding their archesses. If the author can keep up the high standard of Avengers Angel then this series will be a resounding success.
