The Review

Special thanks to Patch Work press for this eBook in exchange for an honest review.

As you know I love reading about angles and trust me this book did not disappoint in any shape or form. Il just start by saying I freaking loved this book!!!!!

What its about
The story is mostly centered around Penemuel. She is an angel that fell from grace with her twin brother Azael. And even though she does not believe in the war the demons are fighting with the Angels she knows as long as she is with Azeal she will be fine. One day when she and Azeal were out reaping souls, Archangel Michael returns from where his Soul was trapped and this forces Pen to rethink her faith and what side of the war she really should be on. While Lucifer is preparing for war, Pen and Michael form an unlikely friendship which grows into something more but what will then happen when Azeal finds out?
What did I like?One word “Pen” There aren’t many times that a strong female character is done right and I promise you it was a breath of fresh air. I liked Pen right from the start, her character seemed so unique and courageous. I guess she just seemed real and down to earth so I could relate to her almost immediately. Azeal on the other hand just seemed evil that I couldn’t stand someone that could be so cruel. But when he made his jokes I actually thought he was funny. Az is selfish , ambitious, ruthless, wicked and cruel but through this, all Pen still would do anything to make him happy. That is what you call selfless love. When Angel Michael comes on the scene he just stole my heart away. He wasn’t overdone by the author and I really enjoyed the times he and Pen spent together.
There were times I didn’t want to keep reading because I didn’t want the story to end an I just couldn’t bear what disaster Lucifer was cooking up. The book ended on a bit of a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to find out what will happen in the War.
