I was given this book to review through the Read It & Reap project.

At the moment I am at the beginning of chapter 18 and I can already tell that this book, even though it has quite a fascinating story premise with the creation of angels and demons, will go the way of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings for me. Which means it will probably take me a very, very, very long time to finish the book. (After over ten years I am still at chapter six of the Fellowship of the Ring.)

This has nothing to do with the story itself. The idea that demons and angels get their powers from an infection that writes itself into the genetic code of the infected's decendents is superb. It's the writing style that ruins the fun of reading for me here. The language used reminds me so much of Twilight (another book I didn't manage to finish) that I actually had to force myself through each page.

So, I am sad to admit that this book was just not my cup of tea. On the other hand, those who liked Twilight will probably love the book.
