Read from September 02 to 22, 2012

The debut novel from Lou Morgan, 'Blood and Feathers' tells the story of Alice, who's life is changed forever when she learns her mother was an angel, and is plunged headlong into the war between the Angels and the Fallen. As a 'half-born' of both human and angel, she is a potential weapon for both sides that could tip the balance of the war in their favour. She is rescued by the Angels from being taken by the Fallen, yet these are not your usual 'harps and halos' bunch - they are soldiers of God; carrying guns, attitude and hidden agendas.For Alice, it is a new life filled with fear, pain and a power she does not understand; culminating into a journey into the depths of Hell itself...

I'd been looking forward to the release of this book, and I'm happy to say it delivered everything I hoped it would.It adds a whole new spin to the usual versions of Heaven/Hell, and never pulls it's punches with the main character of Alice. From following Lou Morgan on Twitter, it is good to see her personality and humour coming across throughout, with characters drawn from a number of influences. My favourite has to be Mallory, an Earthbound Angel tasked with being Alice's mentor and protector. For me, he conjured up comic book characters such as Wolverine and John Constantine, taking all their best traits and merging them into the mix of his personality.I'm already looking forward to Rebellion, next year's follow-up, and highly recommend 'Blood and Feathers'.
