I got a free advance readers’ copy in exchange for my honest review.

Imagine being able to see the angel of death. It would be quite horrifying to see your family die before your eyes as it was. Imagine, in addition to that, seeing their souls being taken while you helplessly look on.

The Girl Who Cheated Deathis about Alexandra Drummond, Alex to everyone else except her mother. She is a normal teenager. Actually, scratch that, she is actually better than most. At 18, she is still a virgin and is

When i began reading this book, i wasn't too sure whether this book was going to be one that i would enjoy. I am not really a fan of paranormal stories, but 'The Girl Who Cheated Death' turned out to be a good read. So many twists and turns. There were parts that were a little on the slow side, but that aside, i would say it is worth a read.

My thanks to Netgalley and the Publishers for my copy. This is my honest review, which i have voluntarily given.

Almost a 5

Wanted is to be a 5, it should have been a 5 but missed on two counts. If there was a 3 1/2 would have used it.
Most of the book was a 'page turner' drawing the reader in and creating a desire to know what was going to happen next. There are several spots where the writer (& the reader) get lost. I'm thinking better editing could fix that.
Secondly the ending was to me very unsatisfing. Loved the creative epilogue but believe Mr. Baker, with a little more effort, could have given

The rise of supernatural fiction that portrays angels as, not fluffy and kind, but as the instruments of god they were meant to be is quite good right now, so Ihave to admit, I was expecting a lot from this book. I'm a huge Supernatural/Lucifer fan, and read a lot of supernatural novels in general, so this book had a pretty high bar to meet. ANd it sorta did.
Firstly, the story centres around a young woman, Alex, who at 18, is the sole survivor and 'witness' to the death of the rest of her family

I love Angel stories, not the happy fluffy ones, the warriors of God type angels. With a little help from Supernatural I have no problem picturing Azrael in all his Angel glory. Alex is a great character – very unpredictable!

I found this story to be an emotional roller coaster for me. Many times, I felt I related to Alex and her story. I cried many times while reading it and I must say that It often felt that her story was my story. That her joys and pains were mine as well. It was often a tough text to read as I have myself suffered great loss in my life barely a few months shy of four years ago. So yeah, for me that loss happened a short time ago so it was easy to feel the main character's loss.

I received this from a Goodreads Giveaway. The author and publisher were nice enough to send it to me.

A YA book. What if something so terrible happened in your life and you could redo it? Would you take the chance? Alexandra faces this question.. This was engrossing. It kept my attention throughout, wondering what was going to happen. I was surprised throughout on some things that happened.

Happy Reading
