I'd like to give this book 4.5 stars - I REALLY enjoyed it! It was a really interesting story and although it is fiction it makes me think about my life and totally re-evaluate it.

Excellent book!

I could not put this book down , and even though this is the third time I have read this book, I love it as much as when I first read it. R.Leo Olson gives great descriptions of the angelic realm, from an Orthodox perspective. Read this book!

As a Catholic, I took the book to be a very fun book of fantasy in many ways. Overall, I felt the book was very inspirational and a good reminder that sin is very ugly! I can't wait for th ...more

The petition takes on new depth after reading Olson's first novel. The author does a marvelous job of suggesting how a guardian angel works while all the time respecting an individual's free will. This book pushes one's imagination in a heavenly direction to broaden and deepen that sense of the angelic life that surrounds the throne of God, all of cr ...more
