Originally published at Risingshadow.

Keith Miller's The Sins of Angels is a fascinating reading experience for readers who love engaging storytelling, genre-bending fiction and well written prose, because it transports readers to exotic Egypt and takes them on an adventure to the distant reaches of the Western Desert. It's a subtly complex and layered account of mysterious events involving two men, a fallen angel and the prince of darkness.

The Sins of Angels can best be classified as an imaginat

I'm on page 4 of Keith Miller's third book 'The Sins of Angels'. Already I am experiencing the Miller effect.

Miller's writing makes you feel like you have just made the sweetest possible love to the person you love the most intensely and you are now lying on a bed of rose petals, eating chocolate, the air heavy with perfume and golden light which bounces off the apricot coloured walls, swamping everything in the small room.

It feels like you are drowning in a bottle of dreams.

Every time I finish one of Keith Miller's books, I float above regular life for a day or two afterwards. There's something in the style and syntax that just sweeps me up and carries me off. Sins of Angels was no exception. There are two or three morsels of prose in this book that are so startling and precise that I'll never forget them--only a few lines, maybe even one phrase, but they're there. The writing has a way of making everything beautiful a little bit gruesome, and vice versa. There's s ...more

Wow ! This book had me from the very first chapter. The storyline pulls you in as read each page that you turn and then some. The characters are so interesting that you can't really put it down. They all keep me wanting more even when I was done.
I won this book in a Goodreads First Reads Contest.

I have gifted it to a friend who adores mystery books and books about murders/detectives. I am hoping she enjoys it.

I received an ARC for an honest review.

I may be a little biased because this book was right up my street, demons and angels, mysteries and secrets. loved it and loved the setting, Egypt noir I'd call it, great 'baddie' and overall a great read done in two sittings...

I was given an Advanced Reader’s Copy of The Sins of Angels in exchange for an honest review.

It is a book that will have you turning the pages to the end. Although this book was not a topic that I would normally jump at, I was happy that I took a chance on it. From the beginning, the author captivates with adroit prose and a deftly rendered setting. The experience of being swept away to Egypt would almost be enough to justify reading this book. However, the tight plot and well-rendered characte
