My thoughts on the book
I enjoyed this book. I love how Dane Cobain portrays the Angels. They are definitely not the traditional angel. There are a lot of blurred lines between good and evil, which I liked. I also liked the way religion and science are combined in the book, and become intermingled, and the way the main character puts the pieces together.
The book has a few scenes where the Angels visit various people and pass judgement, plus a sub plot from the past, which all ties together nicely at the end. I won't spoil the ending, but there is a great twist.
It's well written and I love how the Angels are described.
If I had to be picky, I would have liked a bit more information in the back story, but I understand why that wasn't the case as I think it would have detracted from the main plot too much. There was still enough to understand what was going on and how it all tied in.
Conclusion and rating
This book is short enough to read in one sitting, which I liked as once you get going, you don't want to put it down. I think it's technically a novella, but I felt it was just the right length, if it was longer it would have been pointless padding, but at this length, it's fast paced and interesting.
After reading it, I'm still not sure whether I would categorise it as sci-fi or horror, I think probably a bit of both!
Overall, I enjoyed it, and I will be keeping a look out for Dane Cobain's books in the future! 4/5

I was gifted this book in return for my review, but all opinions are my own. As an avid reader, I would never recommend a book I didn't really enjoy!
