Once upon a time, God, Others and Goddess created the world. But as time went on, wars and greed infiltrated not only the world but Heaven and Hell as well. Angels warring with each other and behaving badly spurned Goddess to create a secret world, Avalon, devoid of anything evil. Goddess sees Adamina on Earth struggling to survive and whisks her from Earth to Avalon. She protects her and provides her every need. She teaches Adamina how to take care of the land and it will take care of you. But ...more

Angels, both good and bad, gods, humans and reincarnation, and that’s just part of the story as Catherine Milos takes us to Avalon in Angels and Avalon. Apparently even archangels can get fed up with the gods and their petty wars and Gabriel has had his fill, becoming the guardian in a secret paradise called Avalon. He won’t be the only angel in paradise though, and he soon finds that his charge, Adamina is fast becoming his heart’s personal paradise. Too bad she is married to another angel who ...more

Author Catherine Milos was kind enough to send me an e-version of Angels and Avalon after I failed to win the goodreads giveaway for it.

Angels and Avalon was, for me a bit of a departure from what I usually read. The focus was on mostly good characters; God and Goddess, Angels, and a very good human. Of course Lucifer is also present so not all is wonderful.

The premise: Avalon is a paradise created by Goddess, hidden from the view of other divine beings who would destroy it.

I enjoyed the idylli

I really like angels and demons, they fascinate me so I had high hopes for Angels and Avalon. The story started off very promising with Adamina being young and growing into a woman however, I was left a little disappointed. Don’t get me wrong I did enjoy the concept of the book and much of the story was good, but, I felt the middle of Adamina’s life was skipped very quickly, it seemed like I blinked and another child was there and I felt because of this the character development suffered a bit. ...more

I won this book on the Goodreads giveaway. The book was nicely written though it does bounce around a little in the middle. It is not excessively descriptive or filled with unnecessary fillers. I enjoyed reading about Adamina's life. I don't normally read books that have gods, goddesses and magic but this book was able to keep my interest the entire time. (Sorry, this is my first review so it might not be very helpful) ...more

Angels and Avalon is a great read that's fast paced and cleverly intertwines religious mythology with fantasy and action. The plot moves well, my only gripe is that due to the span of time the timeline does become confusing at some points which could be planned out better and it feels like some character development is skipped to keep pace with the story.

That said, if you enjoy reading a good fantasy series with a driven plot, this one is for you!

Goes down as another off my 2017 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A book set in the future. It starts in a distant past on a world created by Goddess and goes forward in time through reincarnation with the characters. A book of two parts with Avalon and then forward to present day, two very different worlds where only a few of the same people are found in both. Mainly when reincarnated, whether they remember the past lives is another thing entirely.

Goddess has grown tired of the games and politics of

A great read from beginning to end. Ms. Milos caught my attention from the first chapter and kept it all the way to the end with a strong plot and stronger characters. Rich colorful descriptions made it so I could "see" the story unfold in my mind. This book has it all, drama, suspense, romance, and the ultimate fight of good vs. evil. I was captivated, exhilarated, and often sat on the edge of my seat waiting to read what came next. Brava Ms. Milos, this is a book I am more than happy to recomm ...more

First of all, I want to thank the author for providing me a digital copy in exchange for a honest review.

I remember placing this book in my "want to read" list because of some resemblance with one of my favorite TV shows, Supernatural, but most of Angels here are - obviously - quite different.

I liked it, even though events seem a little redundant after some time. I enjoyed reading about Adamina's life with her kids in this magical place called Avalon, but even if I was a bit tired after readin

This book felt like a lot of stories in one. There are a lot of characters and a few different worlds. They all tie in together nicely but it was a lot for one book.

I would like to of gotten more information about Adamina’s kids. I felt like even though that got brought up multiple times, there was no resolution to it. I know the story is about Adamina and Gabriel but, the kids were an important part of the story too.

I feel like this would be a great series book. As a stand alone novel, it fel

This is a good fantasy story with interesting characters. It has some very good plot twists. However - it just seems unpolished or unrefined, or however you would want to put it. This book just does not quite meet professional standards. It sure could use another round of editing from a good editor. The typos, errors, omissions and grammatical inconsistencies are a bit too numerous to be tolerable at a professional level. The author, one Mrs. Catherine Milos, could also greatly benefit from empl ...more

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway - thank you to the author for the copy and my apologies for the delay in writing this review.

I really enjoyed this book, although I felt that occasionally there was a lot of descriptive ‘telling’ rather than ‘showing’. However, I also understand that this was probably necessary (particularly at the beginning) as there is a lot of information to get across to the reader.

As the book progressed, I found myself drawn in to the story and the lives of the charac

I won this book as a goodreads giveaway.

I THOROUGHLY disliked this book. Time flew by leaving little room for character building or motivation. I have no idea why this story exists, it felt purposeless.

The back of the book summary of what I may find inside was the contents of the last chapter. I struggled through 23 chapters of meandering around worlds with hollow characters to get to one action sequence (ok there was one more bit of action at the end of part 1).

I came really close to putting t

This story draws the reader into Adamina's secret world of Avalon, where magic resonates from the Earth and Adamina. Avalon and Adamina suffer as Angels enter her world, and her relationship with the Angels send ripples through generations as souls from Avalon seek each other throughout space an time. The first half of the novel has a more serious tone, as Adamina's history and suffering at the hands of an Angel lover are detailed. Through a series of increasingly difficult pregnancies Adamina g ...more
