Read in September, 2010
Maybe I shouldn't have read this book right after reading Suzanne Collins. I was looking forward to reading this book. I would love to read about the war in heaven, but I did not like the writing style of this book. Too trying to be poetic or something. I skipped pages of description that seemed irrelevant and uninteresting. Maybe my expectations were too high. I know that the author put in his preface that since we dont know what it was like in the premortal existence, he would be using things that we are familiar with in this world, but when these spirits feel their "blood boiling" I had to stop reading. It one thing to describe an earthly place, but these spirits do not have bodies yet. A little creativity ala S. Collins or Stephenie Meyers would have helped this story immensely.
