I tried to not give in a particular location as I liked the idea that the reader could set it to wherever they most connected with (even relate it to somewhere in America if they wanted to). The location is a mix of where I live, where I grew up and some of the places in Australia that I've visited over the years.
Thanks for the question! :) (less)
Nicole Salmond A series :) I'm currently writing the second one. At the moment there will only be two books in the series, but this could change with time.

Nope, not for me. DNF @ 45%

Such a beautiful cover to such a horrible story.

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

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

Review

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

3 stars

Life for 18 year old Lila Kingston has been far from happy…while her family may have a lot of money, it certainly hasn’t bought happiness for her or her little sister Hayley. 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

"Angels of Moirai" was about a girl named Lila Kingston. Her and her sister are from a rich family and just like the school she goes to are made up of rich kids, except for her friend Jackie. She has a ton of family drama back at home, she never really sees her parents. But, during lunch Lila accidentally fell asleep so to speak. When she looked up she was still at the school but it was like time had stopped. She was approached by an angel named James, but she didn't know that at the time. James ...more

As you know I like stories about angels and this one was truly no exception, I enjoyed reading about the characters in the book. I wont lie at some point I kept wondering what the point of the story was and if I was doomed to read about a forbidden high school love story and then BAM!! It all went down!

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

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

ANGELS OF MOIRAI is one outstanding book! From page one I was captivated with all this book has to offer. I loved how the author was able to weave a paranormal element into a young adult romance. I feel this book has the substance to be turned into an award winning novel. I can see a highly successful series beginning with the strong foundation this book offered. This is the first book I have read by Nicole Salmond but it surely will not be my last. Her unique writing style has earned her a life ...more

I really liked this book. I've haven't read YA in ages, but glad I picked this one up. Yeah there were a few spelling mistakes but I tend to look past all that and focus on the story. I loved Lila and feel sorry for her. It was a bit of insta love, but I really connected with the characters. The reason why I'm dropping 1 star is because it ends on a major cliffhanger which i hate! But by looking at the next books summary it looks like things are going to get crazy and can't wait to read it.

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

I didn't love this book, which made me sad because based on the description I really thought that I would. We have our protagonist Lila who has been thrown into a life of luxury at the expense of her family, and her freedom. Her parents became obsessed with work, instead of being parents and she and her younger sister had been raised by Nannies ever since. Your classic poor little rich kid beginning, which is fine, or at least it can be.

In this case it was not fine. I was annoyed with Lila withi

I didn't love this book, which made me sad because based on the description I really thought that I would.

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

As an 'mature' (a subjective opinion!) adult reader of this particular Young Adult novel, I wasn't keen. I felt that I'd read it all before; the dream sequences vs. reality, the forbidden love between the real world and the supernatural, and for me, there wasn't enough originality to keep my attention.. However! The 'Angels of Moirai' had all the right ingredients for a Young Adult novel, and I know that the teenage me would have loved it. Therefore, based on my above observations I have decided ...more
