Review

  • Novella - and introduction into the Paradox Series of books.
The first thing that I truly liked about it is the style of the writing; it instilled in me the acute sense of being present to something quite wonderful. For me, the writing here scores a lot of points. L.E. Olteano

You have the knack of making your characters come alive right from the start.
Author of bestselling psychological thriller Cut Short. 
--Leigh Russell

This is great! I had tears in my eyes. The more I read ,the more interesting it became.
--Glenda Ward

I wasn't supposed to read this book until I finished two others I had in front of it. After a peak inside I was sucked in and finished the book in one evening.-Julia Crane.

The Author did a fantastic job of catching my imagination and giving me a glimpse as to who and what Guardian Angels are. Readers will easily identify with her vision of
" Guardian Angels"

Darkiss Reads Reviews

From the Author

For me, talking to readers who love my stories and characters as much as I do is a dream come true. NOTHING is more exhilarating or inspiring. The author writes, yes, but I honestly believe it is the reader, that breathes life and soul into the characters in a book. Without the reader and their wonderful imaginations, stories and characters are words arranged neatly on a page waiting to be born, waiting to be loved. 
To the reader, my characters and I thank you.
Patti Roberts.

The world of Angels in which Patti Roberts creates is one of greed, power, sex, control with a bit of conspiracy theory which lays the ground work for the war between good and evil. But who is good and who is evil remains to be seen. Her world of Angels is multi-faceted and for a brief moment I was immersed into their world and presented with very complex and twisted characters and I found myself wanting more. The author has truly created a villain worth reading, he is dark and so very bad that you can't help but want to see more of his dammed soul.

The story then catapults the reader 900 years into the future and back on Earth. In which we find a young girl Grace whose life has just spun out of control. As I followed Grace's story I found myself wanting to be back in the world the Angels. The story of Grace took me through a gamut of emotions ; grief, sadness and despair. It almost felt like I was reading two very different books, one that was meant of an older audience with the writing style more intelligent, detailed and descriptions that made the realm of the Angels come alive. Then on to Grace's world where the author was writing to a younger audience, which I found a bit frustrating for I wanted to see more of the Angels stories. I found the supporting characters in Grace's story without depth, except for Grace herself, whose dark emotions and experiences I felt right along with her.

Though in hindsight, the feeling of good and evil was very tangible throughout and evident in the different writing styles within the story. There are several sub-plots within the tale that I thought could have been explored more and would have given greater insight to supporting characters.

I'm not really sure where to begin with this review. I have been thinking about it for a while. I have seen the trailer for this book, and it is beautiful. The synopsis for the book is just as captivating. The cover - very attractive.

The story itself? Not what I had imagined. The problem is, I'm having a hard time trying to come up with the point of the book. I am aware, by the ending of the book, that this is the first in a series. But there wasn't even an end to this book.

In this book, we bounce back from a time long ago where gods exist, and still have mighty powers, but it seems as if the author is tying the ancient times in with a modern story line of a little girl named Grace, or at least that is what I am assuming considering most of the story was about her.

But from what I am gathering from the story, is there is more to Grace than meets the eye. As if she must be some sort of reincarnation of someone/something else. What is she? I have no idea at all at this point. Nothing was ever explained. It's like the entire book, except for the long detailed story about Grace's loss in her early childhood, is one big teaser. Like everything that we want to know may be told to us in the next book.

I don't know about you, but when I read a book, I want SOMETHING explained. NOTHING was explained. Not how or why the two times were mentioned, in addition to all the 'flashbacks' Grace seemed to be having when she would pass out or black out. I get the idea Grace is more than what she appears. The loss she suffered early in her life shows that something is out there to get her. But so far, it's something in the very ancient past that is wanting her. Not anything in the modern day time.

I liked Paradox. I was torn between 4 and 5 stars, in the end, I decided the quite original plot was worth five stars. The plot is new, it's different, it's something that hasn't been done before. Good angels vs evil angels. I read a lot of paranormal literature, so the paranormal elements were already a plus point. Combine that with the element of the angel houses fighting one another over power and mortals, and it truly made for a great read with a good twist. I found the idea very interesting. It's a perspective that was new to me, and I can say it might be even one I'll embrace for the future because it sounds believable.

However, it took me a while to get into it because the plot is very elaborate, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. There is plenty of world building which sets a good basis for books to follow. I'm a sucker for elaborate world building, so that definitely hit a soft spot with me. If you don't get into it straight away, keep on reading, and you'll understand why the description's necessary. It's really worth reading on.

From the two parts of the book I preferred the angel part because it captured a new world view and perspective on spirituality. The writing was good with great description and good character development (particularly the little girl). I also found the action refreshing. It certainly held my attention so much that I'm sure the plot was what kept me glued to this book more than the characters. I would definitely get the next book in the series to find out what happens next. If you like a fast-paced story with new paranormal elements and well-developed characters, you will surely not be disappointed. Thoroughly recommended.
