Review

Your new favorite book! An absolute thrill ride that will keep you turning the pages until the end. - Christopher H, writing on NetGalley ####### Fast paced enjoyable read! - Kevin Burt ####### Chrymos is a wonderful character. Well developed, with an intriguing story-line that follows her journey from gutter-snipe to...well I can't tell you, that would be giving too much away. - Koeur, writing on GoodReads ####### Reasons I loved this book: First and foremost, Chrymos is an extremely relatable character. She cares deeply for those under her protection, especially the children that she takes care of. She has very valid reasons for her actions and thoughts. Even though this book takes place in the 1600's, it does not take the path of minimizing women or having illogical reasons for women to think and act a certain way. Her views on opulence and her enemies in the book are well thought out and make sense. She is a very no nonsense type of character and does not spend the entire book agonizing over a male character as would have happened in many books I have read. This alone makes this book stand out from the rest. (I also love the twist that occurs because of her character, but because of spoiler reasons, that is all I will say). My second reason for loving this book is the outcast angels. In many books that deal with angels and demons, both the angels and demons are typecast in a very stereotypical way. The demons in this book may have been so-they are evil, have no relationships with each other or anyone else, think only of doing evil deeds. However, the outcast angels in this book are not at all cast in a stereotypical role where they believe themselves better than the humans. These angels are very relatable, work well with humans, and seem to genuinely care about humans and the world. Yes, they are still working to stop a great evil and have a very lofty mission. BUT, they do not sacrifice humans 'for the greater good' as many stories would do. My third reason for loving this book has to do with the special powers (yes, this is a slight spoiler, but we find this out fairly quick). In many books where humans are given powers, they are only given huge, life changing kinds of powers that can change the world. This is especially true of the main character usually. I love that some of the powers are small and insignificant and others seem to be huge, while other characters do not seem to manifest a power at all. My fourth reason is that this book did not slow down at the end 50 or so pages before the end. This is something that really bugs me about some books. In this book, I could only tell in minutes how long was left, but there were still significant revelations to be had within the last 10 minutes of the book. It left it in such a way as to encourage the reader to immediately look into when the next book is due out. My fifth and last reason to love this book has to do with how it deals with God and Christianity. This book very obviously has a Christian theme overarching the whole book. There are times when Chrymos is praying to God and asking for a sign of his presence or interference. In many books that have a Christian element to them, they would hold very obviously with either completely doubting God's existence or showing God's presence without a doubt in the book. However, neither of those options ever seemed very realistic to me and always left me thinking the book not as well put together. In this book, there is no real conclusive proof to me one way or another. Some may disagree with this, because yes there are angels. However, we see no concrete proof that God is involving himself in the lives of the characters and specifically with Chrymos. This is what I love about it, because in our lives we also have no proof, only faith. - KIM, writing on GOODREADS
