Children’s books are generally very difficult to review. You need to give a clear and honest review of the book while keeping in mind that you are not the target audience.

With that said, while I bought this book for my niece, I ended up enjoying it just as much as her. Similar to the way Pixar creates children’s movies for the entire family to enjoy, Audie The Angel is an uplifting tale of courage and self-belief that anyone with a heart will love.

The author, Erika Kathryn, does an excellent job

I was asked to read and review this book by the author.

Audie the Angel and the Angel Army by Erika Kathryn is a cute middle grade read about Audie and her friend Cave, who is narrating the story. Together, they journey to help Heaven in its battle against a traitorous Angel. In Heaven is a lot of other really colorful characters and creatures, which I will not talk too much about so that the reader can discover them him/herself. But suffice it to say that Kathryn has a wild, unique imagination t
InD'tale Magazine

While the plot line of this story is basically solid and gives plenty of action to draw in young readers, there are so many issues with the writing that the story itself becomes lost.

Read full review in the 2013 May issue of InD’tale Magazine.

I realize that this book was intended for younger age groups, but sometimes I find it a bit hard to stop being so critical and remember that the book was not intended for adults. First off, the cover is nice, but I feel it could be a little more dynamic. Still, it is not bad and the colors really do make out a nice, dark yet magical setting. With that said, this book is a little less than I expected. First of all, the main character is nothing less than Mary Sue. For those who do not know what t ...more

[Note: I read both books one and two of this series for this review.]

The Angel Archives is a very fun kids' series that will be sure to please the younger set. My nine-year-old daughter loved this series. In fact, when she was done reading the second book, she rushed down the stairs and said, "Do we have the next book?" She was very distressed to hear that I wasn't sure when the next book was being relea

Okay…wow. I just finished this book and I’m blown away! The writing for example…I don’t know. It just seems so right and perfect. The dialogue between the characters was amazing and beautifully written. I keep putting bookmarks in random places so I could look at the book later and read some of my favorite parts and quotes!

Audie is not your normal average little girl, she so much more, special even. She caught the attention of everyone she met with her pure beauty and her kind heart. Boys could
A seemingly average twelve-year-old girl transfers to a new school, yet again, and soon finds out that nothing about her life ... or past lives ... is ordinary. Audie is pulled into a war only she can end, and must figure out how to win against evil while trying to untangle her feelings for her human friend Cave and the charming angel Luce.

The idea of this book is cute, and I think it will catch young readers' eyes. Situations where other kids are fighting against great power and evil intention

Audie is a 12 year old girl with remarkable beauty, both inside and out. Always helpful and friendly, never brooding about the fact that she was raised by her father and never knew her mother. Life is seemingly normal until one fateful day when an adventure begins and she learns that she is an angel. Not just any angel either, but a Phoenix Angel, which is the most powerful angel ever known.

The story is told to us not through Audie's eyes, which I found interesting as she is obviously the main c

When you think of Heaven, what do you think of?

I think a lot of people would envision pearly gates, angels sitting around on clouds, that sort of thing.

Now ask Audie and Cave what it’s really like.

Guess what? It ain’t perfect.

And why? Evil has found a foothold in the Land of Perfection. And it’s taking over the south part of the land. Creatures you wouldn’t expect in eternal bliss are becoming a regular sight, and the Elder Angels are starting to act strange.

I was sent a copy of this book for an honest review.

I started reading this book knowing that it was intended for a young audience, and that wasn't a problem because I can judge different books accordingly and taking into account the intended audience. It's an entertaining book, but it was a bit boring at some parts and it was way too long. If it made me think it was too long, imagine what a teenager would think while trying to read the book. The story and the message are clearly religious, with
Erik This Kid Reviews Books
Audie, nor her human friend, Cave, knew she was an angel. When a stranger comes to take Audie to Heaven, she is stunned. Cave accidentally sees the man (named Logos) taking Audie and Logos decides he has to take Cave now, too. Logos brings the kids to Unicorn Island in Heaven to meet 8 young Angels that make up the Angel Army. Audie and Cave join them and start training. When the elder Angels get hypnotized so that they become evil, the Angel Army realizes that they are Heaven’s only hope!

Audie the Angel and the Angel Army (The Angel Archives, vol.1), written by Erika Kathryn, is intended for middle grade readers and has clean language. Audie is a twelve-year-old girl who learns she is not only a girl, but also an angel, after she is whisked off to heaven. There she is instructed in all manner of things to develop her innate skills which she didn’t even know she had. Audie is needed to help save heaven.

The one telling the story is a twelve-year-old boy who has very romantic feeli
I won this book through Ensconced in YA. I'm so privileged I did. It was a beautiful story took me on a journey back to my childhood when I believed in fairies, unicorns and magical things like that in the story. It was very well written and loved all the characters especially liked the fact they had a human in the mix also and Audie was so nice and beautiful it made the story wonderful to read. It was good against evil which keeps you interested in the book also. Love the description of heaven ...more

I don't normally read "middle grade" fiction. I don't normally like things about Angels. I was provided a copy of this book to review and I was not sure I was going to enjoy it since I haven't been a pre-teen in some time! The book is an appropriate length for the age group and won't be too short nor too long. It flows really well. It's wholesome. I really like the author's take on what is in Heaven..everything from mermaids to fairies and unicorns. I especially liked the visit to the zoo and th ...more

I have to say that at first I thought this would be a typical paranormal young adult romance, but I was pleasantly surprised! This book is very original. Extremely likable characters are depicted in this story. I found it very difficult to put down until I had finished the entire book. The characters, their abilities, and their struggles were well developed and intriguing. I highly recommend this book and the fabulous author.

I've always had a love for fairy tail books, not sure if its because the world is what it is today and I secretly wish for more or what but I have to be honest, this book was spot on, one of my top five favs.... Incredible character build and usually authors lose them sometimes in books like these, but great job keeping them on target. It's a must read from me, pass it onto a friend or buy it for a niece or nephew. ...more

This book was so adorable! It's definitely a great fit for middle schoolers! Teachers and parents will LOVE it. The imagination put into every little detail was fantastic. The characters were so fun and quirky, but I really don't want to spoil to much for you. Everything about this book will be enjoyed thoroughly, and I can't wait for everybody else to read it and enjoy it as much as I did! ...more
