The Trial of Fallen Angels is certainly a page-turner, but as I approached the end, the "love is all/forgive your enemy/turn the other cheek" was a bit too much for me. There are crimes that cannot be forgiven, in my opinion, and yes, violence returned with violence is usually unproductive, but to suggest that there is no act deserving of punishment, even the ultimate punishment, simply doesn't sit well with me, and I found the ending of the novel quite unsatisfying. The flashbacks during which...more

Well...... A tough read for me,but once I start I have to finish, always hoping I will be pleasantly surprised in the end. I can't say that I was. I guess to read a book like this it becomes a learning process, you have to go through the steps to get the message or lesson in the end. I have always believed that forgiveness is always the right choice but sadly have not always made that choice for myself. Brek Abigal Cuttler had to come to terms with her death before she could forgive her murderer...more

I read the first 60 pages and the gripping page-turner became too philosophical for me--maybe I would be interested at a different point in my life....
Fellow book club friends were disappointed by the ending; others stated the book would be better as a novel withOUT the philosophy.

This may actually be only 2.5 stars.

I liked when Brek was telling her story, as well as when living the lives of the dead souls-- but the links to religious material is hard to follow if you haven't read the Bible in a couple years. It gets a bit too far-fetched/fantasy/"What Dreams May Come" movie-esque especially towards the end. I also agree w/ a previous poster who said it was a slight let down at the end---forgivness-- but then again, that was basically the theme throughout (esp. when you...more

I found that the title "The Trial of Fallen Angels" to be deceiving. The trials were not those of fallen Angels, but those of the souls who have died. I found the story line very interesting in the beginning, but then it just seemed to go on, and on, and on. So much so I think the whole purpose of the novel was lost. Yes, I believe that those in our lives have a purpose, but a purpose of our past lives, not what was being portrayed in the novel. Although this is a work of fiction that is suppose...more

Excellent read, makes you think, makes you cry, and makes you happy

The book is amazing! dashing! It captured me trough the hole book. I just couldn't believe in such wisdom, that someone could write such amazing facts, and poetic thoughts about justice and forgiveness, redemption of our sins.
Megan
Started off great, but got a little too philosophical and religious for me.
Anna
Excellent!! Will read over and over again.
Tami
Interesting.
Jenna
I honestly don't know how to score this one. 2 stars is too low, 3 is too high. It started out great. I loved it. Bogged down in the middle, almost lost me. I skimmed. Skimmed. Skimmed. Got to the end... and what...?

Nope. Just, nope. Not a repeat for me.
Angie
I loved this story from the first sentence. It wasn't what I expected, however, it wasn't my story being woven. Did I agree with everything? No, but the story was fantastic. I loved it and could not put it down. The author really brought it home in the end. Read it, it will not disappoint.
Melanie Maloney
Not a fan of this book. I only kept reading to see how she died. It was odd and jumpy at times. I didnt like how the afterlife was presented. If that us how it really is than heaven sucks!
Nancy Arrington
different kind of view of what happens after we die. it was a page turner a bit too religious but worth reading.
Eliza
This is one of my favorites in the serise. It also has my favorite chapter "Horcuxes."
