Review #166: Echoes of Angels- Matt Larkin
Summary: More than three thousand years ago Angels saved humanity from destruction, but Earth was lost. The Angels spread humanity across the stars and ruled the universe for twenty-five hundred years. Then they vanished.
Angelolist Rachel Jordan has come to the hellish world of Gehenna in search of a lost relic said to hold all the knowledge of the angels. But other factions seek it for themselves, and religious zealots will stop at nothing to keep it safe.
Tile: Echoes of Angels
Author: Matt Larkin
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I absolutely love this cover! It's gorgeous and it fits the story perfectly. Matt Larkin took a different approach in this series than in his other one. The Skyfall Saga was sci-fi/ fantasy where Echoes of Angels is sci-fi but with angels lol. As I have said many times before Nigel's are not more fortè, but this book was different. It didn't have the same old angel folklore that your typical angel read has.matt Larkin created an amazing new universe where angels have had an invisible rule for centuries and its about to come crashing down. I am excited about how this books ended but also mad because it was kind of a cliff hanger.
These characters were awesome to read about because both Rachel and Knight went against the norm, despite having to continually risk their lives, for what they think was better for humanity. I enjoyed the assumed love triangle that Rachel finds herself in, but I am Team Knight all the way! I can't wait to find out more about the new charger that was introduced in the last few pages of the novel and let me feel you SHOCKER!!
I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a quick read because it was so interesting and original. I can't wait for book two, which luckily is releasing in Winter of 2013, so relatively soon. I would recommend this book to sci-fi lovers and those who enjoy a different type of read.
