Eighteen-year-old Jordan Conway has always wanted to help people, but helping seven archangels to achieve their divine duty was never quite what he had in mind… When Jordan is entrusted by the head nun of his orphanage to deliver a mysterious backpack to a New York City address, he comes unexpectedly face-to-face with Archangel Gabriel. Their acquaintance fast uncovers a labyrinth of secrets that connect Jordan’s once-normal life to an ancient heavenly prophecy. Now, he must help Gabriel to reunite the archangels before evil forces grow too strong. Soon, Jordan and Gabriel find themselves on a divine quest across the globe, while deep in the pits of Hell, Satan plots his return to earth. To gain control, however, Satan needs the powerful prophetic objects locked safe inside Jordan’s backpack—and the devil will stop at nothing to get what he wants. With that notion threatening his only family and the safety of his newfound friends, Jordan must do whatever it takes to protect the ones he loves and help the archangels succeed. If that means sacrificing all he thought he knew to go to war with the devil himself? Bring it on.
This one was very special to me, since it was part of a tour I made on september and the book was sent to me by the author, with some amazing swag.
The author is Sara Schaller a paralibrarian, publishing professional, and young adult author. She lives in Colorado with her mom, dad, brother, and four furry canine siblings. Sara loves the world of pop culture and the performing arts, so when she is not reading or writing, she is either watching movies and shows, attending conventions, or going out to see live performances.
Right from the start this one gripped me very fast, the way the storyline comes together and is easy to read and the concept in it was awesome.
One thing that I found very nice since the beginning was the narration since it was very easy to get immersed on the story.
The characters develop very nicely from the start and it’s super easy to fell in love with them and to get emotional with their struggles and motivations.
Jordan was so cute and adorable I take to him almost immediately, he had this very good disposition to help everyone it was easily relatable.
The angels all had their perks and were so interesting, each of them had little quirks that were nice.
The pace is very good and it doesn’t feel forced at any point, it really explain a lot of angelology hierarchy and even when this is the central theme for the book, it’s done so well it didn’t felt overwhelming.
The ending left me wanting for more, so I’m going to wait for the next one on this trilogy.
have you read it yet? who is your favorite angel?Tweet
