Over the last year I have read some phenomenal books by Indie Authors, books that made me laugh till my sides hurt, cry real tears & books that were addictive.
A friend of mine recommended this book to me a long time ago and I picked it up on my kindle in March where it has sat with so many others on my TBR list.
I finally decided it was time to read it. It isn’t generally a genre I read but I am open to all genres. The cover appealed and I liked the sound of it. The moment I opened this book I was dragged in minus the kicking and screaming.
The prologue pulls you in from the first word. I can’t really put an example on here otherwise I would have to copy and paste the whole prologue.
Izzy is a young American girl who is involved in an accident and although she meets the Angel of Death it is not her time to die. What Asher (Angel of Death) does is unheard of and it changes her life forever as it does his existence.
I loved this book from the beginning to the end, if I could give it more than 5 stars I would. The flow was strong throughout. There was excitement and edge of your seat drama and quieter moments as the author allowed you to really get to know the characters. Not only was Izzy and Asher extremely well developed by the other characters, Gwen & Grim and all the other bit players.
It is fantasy but I believed it. I lived it and I can only say thank God I have book two to start straight away.
There is nothing about this book that I think didn’t work or could be improved on. I can’t wait to finish leaving this review and getting a few tedious chores out of the way so I can read Book Two: Wings of Shadow.
Note to author: Please have book three finished within the week I can’t wait any longer.

This review written by:
Self-published author bursting with enthusiasm and ideas that can’t be contained in my head so spill out onto paper. I predominantly write romance but I am playing with other genres.
I have enjoyed reading and writing from a tender age, and I realised recently that the magic of childhood that we lose as an adult can be found again if we open our eyes to the beauty all around us.
I also love creating things, crafting and speed related activities: horse riding, motorbikes & jet skis.
I believe in promoting fellow authors and get a lot of pleasure if my review or recommendation is instrumental in a sale.
