This book is Everythang! Full of interesting characters that are fresh and unique, a story that is unlike any that I have read, and fun. I couldn't put this book down and really rooted for the antagonists to win.

The good:
Maia. Such an amazing heroine full of complexities that draw you to her like a moth to a flame. She feels genuine, I felt her pain and wanted her to get a win.
Well developed plot with the right amount of emotion and action.
Caleb. Despite myself I liked him. he is good and honest, yet still an alpha male
Helix. I want to date him. is that weird?

The bad:
I want more!!!!

Overall: This is one of those books that I wait for, a pearl amongst coal; I literally go through 20+ books a month hoping to find something like this that is full of well written complex characters that make me laugh and cry. This book was everything!

I adored this book. Yeah I've enjoyed everything so far that I've read from this author but that's because her world building is great. Like with this book. I personally, don't believe in anything supernatural-y or the concept of angels/demons/heaven/hell/etc but with how real her world building is, while I was reading it I could lose myself and pretend it was real.

It wasn't overly fantastical in that whole "there's no way this could ever happen because this doesn't exist". Like I was kind of sceptical going into this book. I KNEW I would enjoy it yes. But I didn't think I'd enjoy it as much as I did. It had enough based in reality that I sat there and went y'know this COULD potentially happen. And I really enjoy books like that. Even if they're fantasy books. They nicely blur the line between fantasy and reality. Don't get me wrong, I also like books that take place in a completely fantastical fantasy world that's completely improbable. But for a book like this, having it grounded enough in reality that it seems probable was definitely the best choice for this book.

Wow! Angelborn was a breath of fresh air. Since the passing of L.A. Banks, I've been hard pressed to find speculative fiction by AA authors that captured my attention the way Mama Banks once did. Besides the greats, like Octavia Butler, I was trying to find new authors and happened to stumble across the name L. Penelope. She had two books on Amazon. After reading each synopsis, I decided on Angelborn and boy am I glad I did. So let's get into it.

In the beginning, we meet Caleb who is trying to escape to safety with the love of his life, Viv. We immediately find out that Caleb is more than human. Needless to say, trying to save himself and Viv didn't go as planned and he ends up in the Wasteland. Caleb starts his day out like he does every day, being that he has been cast into something akin to a world between worlds where lost human souls go to roam and Angelborn like him, those who couldn't get their human soul mate to bind to their souls.

Next we meet Maia, whom I take an immediate liking to. Maia has a special ability. She sees dead people. When we meet Maia, she's talking to Ms. Sadie. Ms. Sadie turns out to be a ghost, one of the good ones and trust me, Maia meets quite a few bad ones along the way.

Maia and Caleb meet via happenstance. Caleb's first love Viv, has been reborn as Maia's roommate. From there let the sparks fly! I absolutely loved how L. Penelope developed this story. Even though it was a novella, I felt it was a full novel. That's just how well L. Penelope developed her characters. I found it admirable that Maia tried to deny her attraction to Caleb out of respect for Genna, her roommate.

But I have to mention Helix. I don't know why I loved when he came in a shook up crazy. LOL!

As soon as I finished this book I bought book two of the series, Angelfall. I couldn’t believe how good it was. I love a great paranormal and I definitely got one. The romance between Maia and Caleb was amazing, subtle until it wasn’t anymore. I enjoyed the growth and complexity of Maia and how she learned to deal with her gift and gave so selfishly of herself. Oh the power of love.
Although Maia has a dark personality because of what she’s gone through in life, she brings quite a bit of humor to the story.
I’m so happy I found a new author to love.

Woohoo! This book was great - I loved it!I love a good paranormal book, especially one that's original and fun. This one had all that and a slight touch of evil to it, just to make it even more fun.

There was excellent character development! I loved Maia! Absolutely loved her. And of course one thing I loved about Maia was her snarky attitude! You know I love a character with snark. I wasn't too sure about Caleb, but did end up liking him too. And then there is another scary character thrown in there - Helix - there's a whole twist with him I can't tell you about! But I even liked him - he added a kind of bad boy/scary element to the story! The book wouldn't have been complete with out him.

I really liked this new-to-me author's writing. She kept it exciting, original but also fun. There were quite a few laugh out loud moments.

Here are a couple quotes from the book I liked -

"This world has changed a great deal since I was here last. There is so much to take in. People walk by, speaking into small glowing boxes. The automobiles on the clogged street are quiet and sleek. Two men kiss openly on the sidewalk, and no one seems to bat an eye.

"When are we, and where?" I say. A woman at a cafe' table, typing on what appears to be a tiny typewriter with illuminated paper, looks up at me and frowns."

"Yeah, I see dead people," I whisper. His blank face doesn't register the pop culture reference. "I guess you died before that movie came out." - Haha love it!

I am very much looking forward to the next book - Angelfall. I already have it - it's just waiting for me to read it! I will prob read and review it in the month of April, so keep your eye out for it.

A huge thanks to the author - L. Penelope for giving me this book for my honest review!
