In a world where the Father created all I was born…an angel. A new breed I was meant to overthrow the children of heaven. To prevent this I was taken, and raised as Father’s own. my memories wiped, the dark beast inside me caged. Memories never stay buried though…
I found Angelic Confessions an intriguing read. The opening is strong; the sense of confusion – a struggle between light and dark.
The majority of the book takes place in Heaven, within a controlled environment; confines set by the Heavenly Father. Aye learns from a young age she is special, and is all but smothered with affection. I found it an entertaining notion that Aye was able to charm her father so thoroughly, especially given the fact he is The Father – an all powerful being. The internal politics were well thought out and resonated with the setting. I would have liked a little more description, especially as we are given a peek into Heaven itself.
This may have been a conscious decision by the author. The first part of the story is told from Aye’s point of view, and her confusion adds to the experience somehow. She lives with an inner turmoil, knowledge of a power she does not fully understand.
The second half is told from Pio’s perspective – an elite guard and Aye’s Watcher. His conflicts are that of a loyal soldier and his protective instincts make him a formidable angel. I really liked the contrast, especially as we are taken back through the events to experience them through a different set of eyes.
I enjoyed the romance, a connection which spans lifetimes. It is a tale of forbidden desire, of dark secrets and a love that must be protected at all costs.
