Am I thew only one who resents having to type x number of characters and I have to Headline my review. Why does Amazon force their customers to serve them???
It was suspenseful while remaining an easy read and everything was well explained. It was surprisingly informational. Even though the book is written for a younger/teen audience, I think even adults would enjoy reading this interesting take on young adult Christian fiction.
The plot of this book is that Priscilla (Prissie) can see angels and there is a reason for it... sadly we do not find out what that reason is, nor is there ANY action what-so-ever involving our main characters. We meet a bunch of angels throughout the book but none of them really do anything. I guess this being the first in a series there is a lot more to come BUT I didn't like this installment enough to continue with the series - so alas I will never know.
Also, Prissie reads between a 10-14 year old and that is a big age difference for a character. I kept feeling like she was a lot younger than she was supposed to be. I couldn't get a good feel for her real age and only know it because of the synopsis.
I think that this book might be great for someone who enjoys the lore of angels but it was not for me. I think it spent too much time referring to the Bible and to the angels faithfulness rather than creating a plot that was engaging. There really was no plot to this- yes, Prissie can see angels and yes, she meets a good amount of them but the reader doesn't get anything other than that... the war the synopsis mentions is not in this book.
The characters were incredibly relatable, the world was wonderfully portrayed, (I could visualize everything! There was a perfect amount of detail!) and one of the strongest points of this book is that there is a balanced amount of supernatural and natural. There was also a great amount of depth to our main heroin! Despite her adventures, she is still a normal girl with the same kind of problems and worries that we all have.
Not only that, but the peek we get in on her family's antics is simply darling, and refreshing to read about!
I am very excited to find out what happens in the next book! Five stars!!
