Book Review: Angel of Darkness by Valmore Daniels (Book Five in The Fallen Angels series)

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Genre: Fiction

Age Recommended: 13 and up

This book was definitely a fantastically written finale to the previous four books. However, it wasn’t entirely satisfying. A lot depended on this book in terms of tying together the almost completely unrelated first four. Moreover, all five of these books really had little in common besides characters and the main theme.

Moreover, I felt that characters from previous books weren’t given the level of importance that they should have and the author introduced new, under-developed, characters into the mix.

Angel of Darkness

———————————————-

The Watchers have patiently bid their time. And now it’s finally time for them to take over the world. They’ve summoned enough fallen angels and found enough mortal hosts. And now they’re turning civilians against their own government.

It’s up to two police cops who can’t stand each other and a few “good” fallen angels to vanquish all of these demons and send them back to where they came from. Or is it too late already?

One of the Watchers is planning on bringing back the worst fallen angel who has tried and failed many times to break through the barrier himself. Nobody is more powerful than he, and as soon as he is released, all barriers between Hell and Earth will disappear.

Will the world as we know it disappear?

Book Review: Rosemary’s Gravy by Melissa F. Miller

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Genre: Fiction

Age Recommended: 14 and up

This book was a fantastic mystery and a lot of the interaction between characters was very witty, which I enjoyed a lot.

Rosemary's Gravy

Book Review: Making it Home by Suzanne Roche (Time to Time Book 1)

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

Genre: Historical Fiction

Age Recommended: 11 and up

The beginning of this book was okay but the middle was extremely slow and boring. I continued reading just to see what happens in the end. However, the end was disappointing as well and I didn’t enjoy the book at all. The idea behind the story was good but the execution was poor.

Making it home

———————————————

Peri and her two step-brothers, Henry and Max, are transported back in time when they accidentally put an old relic on top of a book that transports them back to the time that the relic was made. In their case, Peri, Max, and Henry, are transported back to the first day that Ellis Island accepted immigrants.

The three of them discover that in order to get back home, they must find all of the relics, in this case keys, which will transport them home. However, they have no idea how to find the keys because they could be anywhere. Moreover, the keys aren’t all in one time period, so they will be transported into different periods to find the keys.

Will they find the keys? Will they get back home?

Book Review: The Price of Innocence by Bryan Devore

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Genre: Mystery

Age Recommended: 13 and up

This was a good book but a lot of the characters had similar names and sometimes the author’s overuse of pronouns made it a tad confusing.

The Price of Innocence

———————————————-

Ian Lawrence has been sending cryptic messages to his parents and after one final email, his mother loses it. She calls his older brother, James, and tells him to find Ian. James is reluctant at first, but after reading his brother’s emails and learning about his work, things suddenly seem a lot more interesting.

When James is attacked by men looking for Ian, he barely escapes but later realizes that what his brother is wrapped up in is bigger than any of them. He learns of Ian’s plan to pit two of the biggest gangs against each other and to broadcast their war to have other governments support him in his plan to end smuggling rings.

However, when James and Ian finally meet, their plan goes awry.

Will they survive?
