You guys should go check out my first guest post over on Words Unlimited!
Today I am going to be reviewing an ebook called ‘Angeions’ by Inspirus Mwanake. I picked this up because the author himself asked me to review this. Regardless of this, it doesn’t affect the review whatsoever, because I always review honestly.
This books is about Nick, who meets Aella after having a mysterious dream. Once he finds her, his world spirals into one where magic, war, and spiritual realms exist. Where Gods and Fallen angels battle each other on earth, against the human’s knowledge. Once his eyes have been open to all this, Nick has a choice to make. Which side will he battle on? Will the beautiful Angeion (human beings with the ability to free their spirits from their bodies and manipulate the forces of nature in amazing ways) Aella affect his decision, or will the villain Aquarius writhe his way into his heart?
When it comes to the characters, I was slowly drawn in. Aella is a character you can fall in love with quickly. She’s ladylike and graceful, but you wouldn’t want to cross her in a fight because she definitely knows how to kick butt! She loves her family, but when she is faced with her own choice when it comes to love, she struggles more than she thought she would. I think it was the perfect way to show it can be difficult to accept love at first, especially the type that doesn’t just relate to family. She was my favourite character, and I believe she developed the most throughout the story as well. Nick was a good character, but apart from the beginning and then, we don’t read too much into his point of view, so I couldn’t quite match him to her.
As for the plot… at first I thought it was going along the basic storyline. Then at one point the plot hook sunk right into me and I was drawn on from there. We get some lovely flashbacks with supply a lovely backstory to the characters (gotta love backstory ^^) and the suspense got to me! There was an amazing plot twist which I would’ve never seen coming, and had me staring at my kindle for a while, begging for it to not be true! I won’t give any spoilers though, so you will have to see for yourself ;)
The setting isn’t wonderfully described, but the new concept of Anegions as a being made up for it. Learning the extent of their abilities and the possibilities was a great journey. There was also some biblical references I believe, which you can dig out for yourself ^.^ I think the thing that struck me the most was how much darkness there was in this world, and the fact that only a few good things came from it.
Overall, I would rate this book a three out of five stars because took a while for the hook to sink in. Not that it was a slow beginning, but it just wasn’t as captivating as the middle or the end.
