My body lay in the dark alley, broken and bruised. Rain softly dripped down the brick walls, and over my beaten form. I had no memories of anything that had happened before I woke, and I was alone, with no idea where I was. Josiah wakes in a world that is new to him, and is unaware of the dangers that hide within it. He is hunted by two Rangers, and a separate group, who s ...more

I don't feel right reviewing my own work so feel free to have a read. It is now released on ebook on amazon and smashwords. I'll let you know that there are some great twists and turns throughout the story, and I hope you enjoy.

So for the most part i LOVED this book
i liked the idea behind it...i liked the characters...i liked the plot
the writing was off...a lot of repeated sentences like what are we going to do now and stuff
too many I's ....i feel like you could have used something else or written some of the sentences differently so there wouldn't be so many I's

a bit of a spoiler(so stop reading here if you dont want the ending spilled)

i hated the ending...if it wasn't for the ending i would have given this book a 4

i had this novel a while back as it was recomended to me and finally had the chance to read it.
i loved the plot. storyline visible and the main characters development built up through this piece. the description perfect.
however advice to the author, i found you repeated sentences over and over and advise maybe instead of repeating the sentence maybe change a word or two to add to the description or sentence. As so the sentences dont repeat.
other than that enjoyable read.

This is definitely a good vs. evil story. I wanted to absolutely love it, but it seemed to drag a bit for me. The storyline is good rouge angels, rangers, demons all coming forth for the ultimate battle for earthly humans. The ending will tear you apart I will tell you that.
