Thanks for the question! :) (less)
Welcome to the new Twilight. *Sigh*
Angels of Moirai had me at its summary since I'm one to fall for the whole angel-like stuff in books, but did it live up to my expectations?
I want to first talk about the characters which, in my opinion, had no depth. I couldn't connect to literally any of them and it really impacted the rating from the beginning considering that without connections to characters, I really couldn't care less about what happened throughout the whole story. Lila (aka Bella) was ...more

First off, the cover is amazing, it's the main reason I requested this book. The book started off really well and then went down hill a little at the half way point. There were quite a few similarities to Twilight. I know books can have similar traits and still be original, but it was in some of the details, so did annoy me a little, there seems to be too many books like that these days.
Anyway back to the book at ...more
Ok, so I was PRETTY STOKED about getting to read ‘Angles of Moirai’! (Hey! Don't point fingers at my slang! I'm proud to be an Aussie *winks*) I came across it one happy, book-starved day on Netgalley and the cover looked absolutely ENCHANTING! It was so enchanting in fact that I just HAD TO zoom in and then look for a better quality image of the cover so I could just stare at it and then LATER s...more

Raised by maids and nannies, the sisters have always know they may not have their parents around very often, they would always have each other. At the prestigious top school of Eden College, Lila is constantly harassed by the “po ...more
It is a very clever plot not like one I have read about before and that for me was what kept me going with the story. It started off a little slow but as the story unfolded it just kept getting b ...more
I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
Sadly this book is only getting a 2 stars and the main reason why it lost stars is not even due to the author herself but at the editing. Was this book even professionally edited? If it is the case I believe the author deserves a refund because it felt more like reading a decent fanfiction that an actual book and the reasons are as follow:
- The overuse of ‘said’. Every dialogue ends up with he said/she ...more

Let's start off by saying that I really wanted to love this book, like really. Angels? Great. Epic love story? Sold.
And by far my favourite parts of the book were those that focused on the mythology - the contrast between angels and demons - however, unfortunately, there wasn't enough of ...more

In this case it was not fine. I was annoyed with Lila withi ...more
Unfortunately, for me this book was not well written. I was not drawn into the story because there was too much repetitive description or dialogue, such as using 'said' too often where it could have been replaced with 'whispered, exclaimed, cried, snarled, muttered' and I could go on. Things were mentioned by name far too often in on paragraph and you ended up just giving up on it all togeth ...more
