Sadly, I know the author. She is the bane of my existence. The needle in my ass that never goes away.

So when she asked me to beta-read this book, I said sure. I have no problem with telling her if something is bad! She definetly doesn't have a problem with telling me if my plotlines suck or if a certain vampire that I wrote is "a cliche disgusting bloodsucking basterd that should be killed off immediatley!"

Regardless, I went into this read, ready to give it to her!!! I was going to show her that

Six, a fallen angel is itching to get out of hell…planning for years as a matter of fact. So once the opportunity comes up, she escapes with Alden another fallen angel.

She’s happy to be on earth, ecstatic. But what she saw in the viewing portals while in Hell is not exactly what she expects. Earth sucks, some humans are selfish and she’s wondering WTF?! But it’s better than Hell and she content for now…she is befriended by a stranger name Cara who takes her in and gives her someplace to stay an

Possibly Spoilers.

im rather confused what i feel for this book, while it wasnt great it was rather entertaining... kind of..... but not in a good way, no entertaining isnt the right word... more fascinating like when you see a car crash and you cant help but look... like that but not so severe. though when she was mutilating herself was just sick, i understand why but Jeez the author did a good job of making my stomach twist! i felt utterly sick.

this book has potential to be good - as well as su

Fangs for the Fantasy
Six is a fallen angel. She was banished from Heaven to Hell, for reasons unknown (she blames the bureaucracy). But centuries of plotting have finally paid off – and she has managed to accumulate the favours and put into action a plan to get her free.

Now on Earth, she has to learn just what this wonderful, incredible and sometimes horrifying place actually is, what the rules are and to find her own place within it while at the same time rejecting god and her old path – she’s no longer an Angel an

The writing was good, devoid of typos. The beginning was engaging; the story immediately excited me as I watched Six and Alden — two fallen angels — escaping Hell. To my surprise because the book description didn't mention it, there were 6 comic book-styled, black and white illustrations in the story. Me likee.

I really wanted to like the book because the fallen angel is one of my favorite premises for an Urban Fantasy. So what went wrong with Don't Call Me Angel (DCMA)?

MY REVIEW
I was sent an e-copy of this novella by Dragonfairy Press and managed to squeeze it in as it was quite a short read.
Firstly I don't normally go for what I call "comic style" but my daughter tells me the correct terminology is that its a "graphic novel" style but I really enjoyed this one. There was the occasional illustration within the book as I read it on my kindle. I really liked the illustrations quite a lot. Obviously the paperback would use more images within and I am not sure I w

Favourite Character: Six

Six is a fallen angel, who after decades of planning escapes from hell with her ally Alden. Once escaped Six is thrown into a world of humans on Earth who aren't happy and hunger for more. Six cannot understand why human beings aren't happy, they have so much that they are taking forgranted, or at least Six thinks so. In a short time, Six is taken in by a kind woman named Cara, shown a club that's filled with fallen angels, demons and monsters by Alden and is found by the

I loved the synopsis of Don't Call Me Angel too, but what really made me excited to read this novelette was the excerpt the publisher asked me to post last month. That's when I knew it was going to be a fun read.

Plot:
Six (this name has special meaning that is revealed later in the book) is a fallen angel and has been thrown into Hell. If course, she hates in there (so loud and cruel. Also, with extreme temperatures) and lays out a plan to escape. She takes another fallen angel called Alden with

This book was very short and fast paced. Everything led to something. There wasn't a stop where you could lean back and relax you had to pay attention to every word incase you overlooked or missed something.

Six was sent to hell and after the gatekeeper owed her a favour he could not refuse to open the gates to leave her out for he had made a blood bond with her favour for a favour.
Her friend she also owed came through with her hit he is not share the same compassion six did for humanity.

I read this a while back and didn't realize I didn't post my review. So I had to go back, dig up my voice recorded notes and get to typing...

Don't Call Me Angel had me on alert from the title and quivering from the menacing cover. It simply screamed badassness. To add to the exterior appeal, the first paragraph had me prying my focus away.

When I picked this novel up, I didn't realize it was simply the prequel. Reflecting back, that makes since seeing as that this is merely a teaser. This don't

A short read. i just got this via email for R&R this morning and I'm already done. Quite refreshing to read something shorter than what I usually go for.

The story is pretty simple. 2 "fugitives" from hell explored earth, they wanted freedom and a new environment..Alden wanted to have fun, by killing humans and destroying their souls and Six tries to find a way to stop him.. So basically that's it. I couldn't really expect much of a plot considering that the whole thing is only about 120 page

I won this book from a LibraryThing giveaway. Six is an angel that has been sent to Hell but manages to escape. Once Six gets a taste of Earth, will she ever want to go back to where she is suppose to be?

What a great read. I loved that there were illustrations included throughout, it really added that extra bit of something and made it special, not to mention unique. Each of the characters were so well done, I liked Six and how she managed to escape from Hell with Alden, who I despised from start to finish, and how she was an angel but one with attitude. The take on angels was something that I found intriguing and different, how there were angels even in Hell who had done wrong, I liked that a l ...more

Six is a fallen angel that was cast out of Heaven and sent to Hell for some reason she still isn’t sure of. After decades in the dark and several failed plans of escape, Six finally finds a plan that works and she takes her one ally with her; fellow forsaken angel, Alden.

They are amazed being on Earth and seeing just how great it is, but they can’t understand why the humans that live there aren’t happy. They have so much, yet they always want more.

Six loves her wings yet sees them as a burden and cuts them off. Six and Alden go their separate ways yet can still contact each other. Six wonders why life on Earth isn't like she imagined or thought it would be. Alden has no trouble blending into his new life. He even finds a club called The Underground which is very similiar to ...more

Don't call me angel by Alicia Brewster is a short read with only 10 chapter. If you have a few hours and want to squeeze in a little reading this is just the thing. Although at first it’s kind of frustrating, it felt like I was thrown in the middle of something without an explanation. If you can overlook it and just roll with the punches the story gets better.

Six is a fallen angel, why she is fallen is never reveled in this short story but I’m hopping that in the next book she talks about it. H

Disclaimer: The fact that I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review has not affected my rating.

When you think of angels in YA Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance, what do you think of? Fallen? Halo? Hush, Hush? Even Unearthly? Regardless of the quality, most people think of the romance between those heavenly creatures and humans, whether it be between Nora and Patch, Cam/Daniel and Luce, or Tucker and Clara. Don’t Call Me Angel is a wake up call – not all angels ar

I was excited to read this book based on the summary. It really sounded like a good read. However it did not live up to my expectations. I give the book 3 stars.

The plot itself is unique and the descriptions in the story are very vivid. However I just didn’t care for the characters in the story. Six escapes from Hell and decides she wants to live as a human but she doesn’t understand why humans aren’t happy. Six seems to be really naïve to me considering she has been to Heaven and Hell and watch

I read this via a veersion emailed to me from Shut Up & Read. I really liked the concept of the book, I thought the storyline had a lot of potential.

I'm not sure if it was just me but I didn't really feel any sympathy to the characters - there seemed to be no character building, no history of the character and their emotional intelligence and this made their reactions to events a lottery.

I would have loved to have found out why Six had been thrown out of heaven and why she wanted to leave. T

I received this one as an Early Review ebook. The concept is gripping, two fallen angels escaping from Hell. I wanted to know why they were fallen, but all the main character, Six, knows is that she was found lacking for no apparent reason and cast out of heaven hundreds of years ago. With the story occurring from her point of view, they escape rather easily and then encounter Earth. One of the things that didn't work for me was her easy understanding and acceptance of things here. No amazement ...more

I really liked this book. I've read several Fallen Angel books, but this one really grabbed my attention from the start. It begins with a Fallen Angel named Six escaping from Hell with another Fallen Angel, Aldan. That in itself had me hooked, I've never come across a Fallen Angel Book with the Angel being confined to Hell. Unfortunately you don't know why she was sent there, and neither does she. The part where she cut her wings off, made me want to gag. I kept hoping they would grow back, just ...more

Let me start by saying I liked the story. The idea of Satan having a wife and her trying to escape hell was very intriguing. In particular seeing where the author planned on taking Six and her fellow escapee Alden. I enjoyed the writing. Brewster’s descriptions of Hell and of Earth, Six flying, the people that she encounters, they all really helped me see the story as it played out. I als

As a YA book i wasn't sure what to expect, i thought to read it with my son and daughter in mind. Personally i thoroughly enjoyed the book, as an adult it was easy reading and as a YA book wasn't very long- i read it in 2 sittings. I feel it was a good introduction to the rest of the series. I wasn't expecting the twist at the end and that has lead me to have questions of how and why. I hope that these will be answered in the next book. I love the dark and light that is explored, and the way the

I read this book mostly over the course of one morning (I fell asleep half a chapter in the night before). It was extremely short. There is little to no character development and the jump from location to location was so choppy that compared to other works of fiction it was extremely hard to suspend my disbelief. There was no complexity to this book.

I would have been able to sympathize for the main character if the time lapse between the start of the book and the "climax" had more relationship

I've spent the last 4 hours going back and forth about whether I truly liked this book. Honestly, I still haven't formed a solid opinion yet. 2.5 stars would be my ideal rating (right down the middle). For starters, from the book description I was anticipating more action and edge-of-your-seat moments. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case for me. Thankfully, fellow angel, Alden, is in the picture and creates suspense the second half of the book. The second half of this book kept my interest much ...more

This was well-written and enjoyable to read, with a strong female lead and unique scenario. The scene in which the main character Six cuts off her wings is gruesome but powerful. It also raises interesting philosophical questions about what duty an Angel owes to the God who created her and then cast her out.

Overall, I'm excited to see more from this new author. One of the most interesting and compelling characters doesn't appear until the end of this novella. Brewster teases the reader with only
