Alison McLennan's review
Jun 30, 2018
Read 2 times. Last read June 15, 2018 to June 30, 2018.
I’ve read loads of YA fiction, and there are elements most books have in common. Young heroes and heroines, the dark power of a sinister opponent, overwhelming odds against victory. What sets this book (and it’s predecessor, The Day the Angels Fell) apart from the rest is its constant, pervasive aura of suspense. From the first sentence, it feels as if revelation waits around every corner, that something deeper is happening than the sum of words on a page. This is the best kind of writing, because it awakens the part of me that once saw adventure and danger in the most mundane places. It had me reading breathless, devouring the story even as I wished it would last longer. I will be eagerly awaiting the next volume in this riveting series.
