A Match Made in Purgatory
on August 30, 2011
If you thought Romeo and Juliet had issues, you haven't met Ana and Dylan. Both are on opposite sides of the mother of all family feuds. A feud that has raged from the earliest days of man.
Ana, you see, is an angel and her boo is a demon.
Try explaining that one to your pastor!
Ana meets Dylan in detention after school one day and finds herself obsessing about him. But when Ana discovers she's an angel and that her new crush is a demon, she knows things aren't going to get much easier. The other angels at her school warn her to stop seeing him. Dylan's demon buddies threaten her. About the only person who doesn't seem ready to kill her for dating a demon is her best friend, Cheyenne.
And that's before things really get hairy.
The premise of this novel drew me in. The complexity of the characters kept me reading. At first glance, it might be easy to think that anything involving angels and demons will be a pretty cut-n-dry affair. After all, angels are good, demons are bad, right? I was pleasantly surprised that this was not the case. In Ana's universe, everyone makes mistakes, even angels. Toss in a murder mystery and angels with a superiority complex and you've got yourself a great page-turner.
I wish I had an angel for a best friend. I would totally make them play my favorite ABBA songs on the harp.
