review by Megsly

*Warning: possible spoilers ahead.*

I keep hearing that angels are the new vampire in the world of paranormal fiction. I like angels; angels are the polar opposite of vampires, right? And there have been many entertaining books that center around angels recentyl. Hush, Hush By Beth Fitzpatrick and Torment and Fallen by Lauren Kate. I've read Fallen but not it's sequel (yet), and I've yet to read Hush, Hush but I have heard very good things about it. So I decided what the heck, let

(3-4 Stars)

To tell you the truth, I wasn't so sure about this book when I first skimmed through it. For one thing it didn't have any chapters but instead multiple point's of views with seven (but mainly four) different characters. I thought this would be overwhelming and confusing but after a few chapters -or characters- in, it actually flowed quite nicely putting my worries to rest.

Book of Love is the first book in the Knight Angel series. A book that brings on a whole new meaning to intrigue a

The Original Review - Here!



If by any chance you ever had your doubts against self published books, Knight Angels Book of Love will make you forget them. Knight Angels narrates the story of: Jane, Emily, Wes, Max, Greg, Erik and Sarah. This circle of friends and family is bound by supernatural forces and the secrets among them. The chapters are narrated in different POVs where each character’s “voice” shines for their singularity and contrast. Even though the Angel Theme has been recently explo

Krista (One Love) (Critical)
The book starts out intruiging, but then it starts to get boring and cheesy and predictable. The characters are distinct, but not particularly new, interesting, or likable, especially Jane, who is selish and mean and annoying. Emily is mildly more likable than Jane, but she doesn't have as big a part in the story as Jane, and her personailty is twisted by the supposed baddie of the book, Greg, who is totally uninteresting and cliche. I mean, the guy who kills his family because he thinks they do ...more

Why the hell do YA authors these days not seem to understand the nuances of "smirk"?!?!? I have come across this multiple times in the past few years and it is driving me mental. People seem to think that "smirk" means "charmingly cocky grin." THAT IS NOT WHAT IT MEANS. Google can tell you this, for God's sake. Just googling "smirk" tells you that it means: "a smile evoking insolence, scorn, or offensive smugness" (Wikipedia); "an affected, often offensively self-satisfied smile" (thefreediction ...more

Even though I really liked the concept for this book, I had my reservations when I started reading The Knight Angels because I had just read a book with multiple characters narration that gave me a little trouble. But The Knight Angels' narration was really great and I can't see how this story could have been told differently.

We live this fabulous story from many perceptive, but mainly from five different ones:

This is a great start to an exciting new series. It was fast paced and engaging read. It had a great blend of supernatural characters that worked really well together as did the multiple narrations.

The characters were well written but I felt a connection with Emily and Wes the most, and found myself excited to read their parts in the story. They weren't perfect characters by far and thats probably why I liked them so much, especially Emily. Max and Jane I'm sure will have lots of fans though. Gr

“What once hurt, eventually helped me to heal.”

----------------------------
Books involving Angels have always been a fascination to me.
There are a couple of Angel books that I love like the Unearthly series and Hush Hush.
And Knight Angels made it to one of my favorites.
It was told in multiple alternating POVs which was executed flawlessly.
This book deserves more attention.
There are a lot of overrated books nowadays that books like these are barely noticed.

I found this book really disappointing. It felt like Jane was meant to be the main character but I found myself drifting towards Emily who was far more interesting. Jane came across as flat and rather boring, the romance between her and Max wasn't as exciting as Emily and Wes's relationship. I found myself comparing it to twilight throughout the book: A plain boring girl who attracts the attention of a mysterious guy and a shapeshifter? Been there, read that. There were some cringe worthy moment ...more

This book will draw you in quickly. First I was a little weary about reading a book that had so many POV, but afterwards I don’t know how this book could have been told otherwise. I think it was a good thing, it gave me a chance to visit each of their minds.

The book focused on 5 mayor characters, Max, Greg, Jane, Emily and Wes. Max is so nice and handsome, the good angel. He always knew how to make a girl feel special. Greg, his brother, is the bad boy/ angel. Jane and Emily are sisters but tot

Are you a fan of Angels, be they guardians or fallen? Do you root for the shape shifters and sympathize with the mind readers in the stories you've read? Do you ever wish you could see the future and know how you and your friends and family will die...or at least perhaps when? Well if any or all of these questions interest you, look no further because Abra Ebner has it all. It's like one stop shopping with Book of Love (Knight Angels #1), Ebner leaves almost nothing out.

Knight Angels is a series to be on the lookout for. After finishing Book Of Love I cannot wait to get my hands on the second book. It had everything: love, angels, deception, and betrayal. What more could you want in a YA book? =]

Book Of Love is told from multiple points-of-view. It's mainly the four teens, Jane, Emily, Wes, and Max but sometimes there were others. Jane and Emily are sisters but they are nothing alike, at least they don't think they are. They both have very odd powers but they d

Incorporating several intriguing elements and seamlessly navigating multiple perspectives, Knight Angels is a fantastic addition to fantasy and supernatural books. With a well balanced mix of romance, action and back story, this book will carve its own niche in an ever advancing genre. All the characters are introduced early, some seen through the eyes of another before the reader is able to see inside their head. Ebner does a fantastic job showing how one person views another is not always righ

So, I'm just going to jump right in and say I LOVED THIS BOOK! In fact, when I'm done writing this review I will most likely be found purchasing the second one in this series as I'm anxious to find out more about the continuing story.

I was first attracted to this book by the cover. It had been in my TBR list for a while, so when I decided to start doing a feature post on my blog about choosing books by the cover, this was one of my first picks.

This book had a great hook to it that happens immedi

Book of Love was good. It was intriguing. The six or however many points of view it's told in was interesting, and I guess I liked it. The way Ebner wove the different perspectives was done nicely. I think I just prefer one point of view, maybe two. But I really did like this book. The plot was done well, and the characters developed good.
I do think that this book needed one more round of editing before publishing. There were just a few typing or grammar errors. Like, Max is talking, and he say

Eleni ( La Femme Readers )
Knight Angels: Book of Love won me over from the first page. I became addicted to the plot and the well developed characters. The chapters were broken up into narrations for each character throughout the book. This method made it easier to keep up and it also gave me a chance to visit each of their minds. The storyline was refreshing and heart-warming. The love and passion was perfect, especially for a hopeless romantic as myself. Now, the book focused on five major characters, Max, Greg, Jane, ...more

Book Opening:

Diary of Jane Taylor:

"When I think of death, I don't see what everyone else does. There's a soft whisper when you find it, and a voice telling us that it'll be okay.

We never die alone, because they are always there watching over us, protecting us, and guiding us. They are silent, like a simple gust of wind; but it is in this wind that our world can change.

Note to self: next time I see a book from a publisher I've never heard of, I need to google them. If the number of authors they've published can be counted on one hand, avoid them at all costs.

Funny how Crimson Oak can afford a decent graphic designer (I quite like the cover inside pages) but can't afford to hire a decent editor. Then again, I doubt any editor could have saved this trainwreck. Ebner's prose is painful to read and the multitude of POVs do nothing for the story. It seems as if sh

Too Many Thoughts
Well I finished it...ish. I stopped reading at the 301st page because the story started to drag and the whole this started to feel false. It felt like the author, Abra Ebner, was trying waaaay to much to be like Stephenie Meyer--not that I have anything against Stepheneie. I love the Twilight Saga and this that it's an amazing literary peice, she's one of my favourite authors, but this is just the reason why I don't like Stephenie's book as much as I used to. Why her books have gone from "AMAZIN ...more

I'd been eager to read this book since I first discovered it on the author's website a few months back. The gorgeous cover drew me in first and when I finally cracked the book open, I was anything but disappointed! What a fantastic, whirlwind of a story! This book was told chapter by chapter, alternating between the points of view of the four main characters: Jane, her younger sister Emily, their lifelong friend Wes, and the mysterious new guy Max. This was the perfect format for this story. Be ...more

the little exerts in the middle of the book had me confused like i knew what was going to happen and had me dissappointed cus i thought i knew the ending, but when i finished it i was so relieved it wasnt what i had thought really happened, i almost didnt finish it cus i thought it had a bad ending and was torn cus i had developed a relationship and feeling for the characters, but so glad i did finish it, cus it was better than i had expected, a lot better. i cannot wait for the second one to co ...more

SIGH! Great book! Really! Love the idea of angels around you.. guardian angel.. true love.. sigh!

The book is written from four different POVs. From Jane's, Emily's, Wes' and Max'. It wasn't disturbing to have so many different voices - far from it! - it was good and fits to the story.

Book #2 soon comes out! Yay! :)

Btw, have a look on the beautiful cover! I LOVE IT! ♥

Okay, my review.

Umm...Abra Ebner's style of writing is very gripping and she keeps the reader wanting more. I very much enjoyed this book. One of my favorite reads...just hope that Knight Angels: Book of Revenge is more action-packed. But overall a great read!!!

I could not finish this book. Hence the DNF. I think I got to 20% (it's a long book) and my brain was screaming at me for mercy. I didn't like all the multiple POVs they all sounded the same, all the characters were flat, whiny and boring. The POVs didn't add anything to the story. Everything that was told in each of the views could have been expressed quickly and more emotionally through dialogue or action and the story would have moved swifter and smoother. One thing I can't stand when reading ...more

I have to admit that the first thing that I liked about this book is the cover, I’m a very visual person and a good cover is something that always catch me at instant and this cover wasn’t the exception. And then of course I started to enjoy the story. Even when sometimes I felt that already had read too many stories about an angel in love with a "normal girl".

The second thing I liked is the way it was wrote, it gives you a good opportunity to know all the characters so much better and understan

Ebner took a recently popular theme in YA and put her own personal stamp which leads to an entertaining read. We are just introduce to seventeen year old Jane as she is dealing with the tragic lost of her father and with it the crazy power that she has that makes her secluded from everyone. Except her friend/e-boyfriend Wes, who have secrets of his own. Thing get complicated when the new boy Max joins in her senior year things start to get complicated as Jane gets drawn towards Max.

Jane, Wes, Emily and Max are the main charaters in this enchanting story.Unlike most books this book doesnt have any chapters and we get to see the story from each of these charaters and others but mostly these four. The book starts off with Jane explaing what her life is like and then to her mom and ect. The story of how jane and max meet is a little chessy but it was cute and i liked it. Max is an Angel and in the book it explains that there are two kinds of angles black wings and Grey (white) ...more
