Oh, I loved this book so much. It was refreshing that there is no cliffhanger to make you mad, then wait for a year for a sequel. I am guessing this is a series, and am very happy about that.
I absolutely loved this book. It was not your average angel book at all.
Let me ask you this, would you be totally freaked out, if all of a sudden you started having dreams that showed people you know, going crazy, killing someone, then taking their own lives? Played out in your dream like you were really there? Yeah, this is what starts to happen with Heather, our main female character. When her sister is the next victim it really strikes home for her.
Then to make matters worse, when Heather tries to go stop it, she is always too late, and she becomes a suspect for these horrendous crimes. The glowing red eye man in her dreams is flaunting what he is doing. Then she meets a silver eyed man with long black hair, gorgeous body, who happens to look like the red eyed man in her dreams. She is confused at first, but Heather sees auras, and his aura is pure white, meaning purity, and not a touch of evil. Nothing like she has ever seen before. The man in her dreams has a black aura, meaning evil. So Scythe our silver eyed “good” twin has come into Heathers life, finding a connection to his “fallen” evil brother. See Scythe is an Angel of Death, and until Blade his twin “fell” he was also an angel. I will let you discover why on all of that.
This book was very fast paced and kept me turning the pages. I found it realistic when Scythe claimed Heather as his angel-mate, and she resisted being “owned” at least at first, which I found something that would be a realistic reaction. Not just an instant gushy love right away. They have a hard road ahead, trying to stop Blade, before Archangel Michael kills him. Scythe wants to reach Blade, and save his soul. The action in this book is non-stop, but we have some steamy romance thrown in, but it’s nice that the focus is not on the romance, there is a story to tell, and it’s told very well.
I will warn you, there are some points in the book that are disturbing; about Heather and her sister Rosemary’s past. And a pedophile father that does the unthinkable to his young daughters. There are some explicit sex scenes in this book too, but it’s not over the top, or anything, but certainly for mature readers only.
I found that Heather is a very strong female character to be able to endure her childhood, it’s unthinkable what her sister had to endure to ensure Heather’s safety, and made me really like Rosemary, whom we do not get to see much of, as you will discover in the opening of the book, Rosemary is Blades next victim that Heather “dreams” about, and tries to save. I really respected Rosemary, for looking after her younger sister when they were kids. There is an underlying message to this story that I found to be a good message. This book is very well written, and I look forward to seeking out more of her work. I will definitely read the next books in this Angle Of Death series. I hope the next is soon.
I highly recommend this book for all mature readers.
