Book & Author Details:
Title: Angel Tormented by C L Coffey
Release Date: June 14th 2016
Genres: Young Adult, Urban Paranormal
Ever since a photograph of an angel made the news, people have been camping outside the churches of the city, waiting for their own miracles. To keep a low profile, Michael has kept Angel under house arrest. With the absence of the cherubim, and the remaining angels too busy (or lazy) to help, Angel has been too distracted to worry about the fact there are two Princes of Darkness in New Orleans. That is, until Ty, the Nephilim who has yet to earn her trust, provides her with information that could lead to the end of Asmodeus.
When tragedy strikes, Angel has her hands full trying not to let the convent descend into chaos. The list of things Angel must accomplish keeps getting longer, and as each item grows more important, so too does the urgency at which it must be completed. With her list of allies constantly changing, can Angel remove the evil from New Orleans while above all else, keep Joshua safe?
I’m going to start with a public service announcement. This is not a standalone novel. I strongly recommend that you read books 1 and 2 in the series to get the fullest benefit.
Unfortunately, I didn’t do that, and whilst I was easily able to get up to speed with the characters and most of their interpersonal connections, as well as the highlights from the previous 2 books, I nevertheless still felt that I had missed something.
But, on to the story. This was a very easy tale to get caught up with, and notwithstanding the subject matter, there was a gritty realism at times which grounded the narrative.
I felt that the author did a decent job in creating multilayered character interactions, shot through at times with an element of humour.
I have to say that, with the tragedy in question (no spoilers), the ease in which the individual concerned apparently succumbed was a little disconcerting. That aside, this was a decent read.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Cheryl works in an office by day. By night she leads a (not-so) secret life DJing, and throughout it all, is constantly scribbling away as the plot bunnies demand constant attention.
Her first novel was written when she should have been revising for her GCSEs. While it is unlikely to ever see the light of day, it was the start of long relationship with the evil plot bunnies of doom.
A need to do more than just one subject led her to the University of Hull, where she graduated with an honours degree in American Studies. For the third year of the four year degree, she was able to call Baton Rouge home. Since then, Louisiana has claimed a large chunk of her heart, and remains a place she will always consider home.
LSU was where she discovered FanFiction and currently writes (mainly) CSI:NY stories.
When not transcribing the stories of the angels and archangels, working, or DJing, she is at the beck and call of three cats – all of whom rank higher in the household than she does.
