BREATH OF ANGEL book review
ABOUT THE BOOK
The stranger’s cloak had fallen back, and with it, a long, white, blood-stained wing.
When Melaia, a young priestess, witnesses the gruesome murder of a stranger in the temple courtyard, age-old legends recited in song suddenly come to life. She discovers wings on the stranger, and the murderer takes the shape of both a hawk and a man.
Angels. Shape-shifters. Myths and stories—until now.
Melaia finds herself in the middle of a blood feud between two immortal brothers who destroyed the stairway to heaven, stranding angels in the earthly realm. When Melaia becomes a target, she finds refuge with a band of angels attempting to restore the stairway. But the restoration is impossible without settling an ancient debt—the “breath of angel, blood of man,” a payment that involves Melaia’s heart, soul, and destiny.
I love fantasy books like Twilight and such so I was very curious and interested in reading this book. Now I was immediately intrigued with this book and the storyline ( I mean angels always intrigue me.) This is the first in an upcoming series and after reading this one I definitely want to continue reading the series. My only complaint was that things were slow after the beginning and some things were a little difficult for me to follow but overall I enjoyed the story.
I am interested in reading the next book in the series and am hoping that the writer continues stronger with the next one because her writing shows the potential to do so. The book is available for sale now at book stores and online at Amazon.com for $ 9.99. So if you love fantasies give this book a chance.
