Review - Angel Star by Jennifer Murgia on Kindle
Seventeen-year-old Teagan McNeel falls for captivating Garreth Adams and soon discovers that her crush has an eight-point star etched into the palm of his right hand-the mark of an angel.
But where there is light, dark follows, and she and Garreth suddenly find themselves vulnerable to a dark angel's malicious plan that could threaten not only her life, but the lives of everyone she knows.
Divinely woven together, Angel Star takes readers on a reflective journey when one angel's sacrifice collides with another angel's vicious ambition in a way that is sure to have readers searching for their own willpower.
This is one I was excited to read, I enjoyed it and look forward to more works from the Debut Author, Jennifer Murgia.
Charmed fans you will enjoy this one, honestly it could have been a few episodes wrapped up in one.
Teagan was a great character, I enjoyed getting to know her, the 1st half of the story I would say I LOVED, the teenagers were so real, she got their behaviours down perfectly. And for once a YA book with a parent in it, thank you Jennifer. This has been a missing piece in other YA for me.
I love the idea of angels and Teagan meeting her Guardian Angel, just lovely. It was so cute how Teagan wanted a boyfriend, but not just anyone, she was willing to wait and then out of blue her Guardian Angel, it felt like a dream.
And then for me this is where it changed a little, I seriously couldn't tell the difference between reality and Teagan dreaming. I just didn't feel like a few days she would be able to accept and embrace having a Guardian Angel, boyfriend, fighting good vs evil with the good angel and the bad angel and even within herself. It just wasn't realistic, something was off for me, can't pin point sorry.
I did very much enjoy Jennifer's descriptions and words she used at times, simple sentences but made you want to read them again because they were dark and beautiful. Example My eyes closed to the haze that was now enveloping me, and I lay there as the rain quickly stained the weary sky and the heavens wept for me.
For me I wish this was a stand alone book, not a sequel.
I give it a 3 1/2 More Sugar Please
Go here The Bookshelf Sophisticate to read Katelyn's review, I had it on my Wishlist but she made me excited to read it sooner.
