Breath of Angel

Author: Karyn Henley

Genre: Young Adult/Fantasy/Christian

Series: Angelaeon Chronicles #1

The stranger’s cloak had fallen back, and with it, a long, white, blood-stained wing.
 
When Melaia, a young priestess, witnesses the gruesome murder of a stranger in the temple courtyard, age-old legends recited in song suddenly come to life. She discovers wings on the stranger, and the murderer takes the shape of both a hawk and a man.
 
Angels. Shape-shifters. Myths and stories—until now.
 
Melaia finds herself in the middle of a blood feud between two immortal brothers who destroyed the stairway to heaven, stranding angels in the earthly realm. When Melaia becomes a target, she finds refuge with a band of angels attempting to restore the stairway. But the restoration is impossible without settling an ancient debt—the “breath of angel, blood of man,” a payment that involves Melaia’s heart, soul, and destiny.

Summary: I’m not writing down any of the content, really; just the summary. I started this book because WaterbrookMultnomah hadn’t had anything intereseting in a while. I didn’t like this book very much; the writing wasn’t that great, the storyline seemed muddled, and the way she portrayed angels, etc. just felt somehow… almost sacriligious to me. I wouldn’t recommend it – I’m not condemning it, mind you – but I wouldn’t recommend it.
