*Review* The Angel Knights by Mary Ting

Photo Credit: Goodreads
Genre: YA/Paranormal
Published: March 4, 2016
Pages: 56
Setting: Crossroads (Not Earth)


Michael and Claudia’s decision to move back to Crossroads was to keep their children safe, but they can’t escape who they are. Their children, Zachary and Lucia, were destined to be demon hunters—Venators. From the age they were able to hold a sword, they were trained to become the best and to ensure they would become leaders one day. 


I was hired to proofread this book. The author was not and is not aware that I'm posting this review. As you should know by now (if you follow my blog), I review every book I read. If you feel that my connection to the story makes my review untrustworthy, so be it, but this is my honest review.

This is a spin-off novella for a series that I haven't read, so I missed out on the world building. I feel like I'm probably missing out on some pertinent backstory info as well because of this, but things still mostly made sense anyway.

There were a couple of things that didn't make sense to me from a scientific/genetic standpoint. It's possible that these issues were explained in the original series, but they were still something that stood out to me as an issue. 

The descriptions included in this story made me feel like I was present. I could picture the angel wings and the celestial weapons, as well as everything else fairly easily.

Overall I give The Angel Knights 4 out of 5 stars because it was interesting, but there were a few minor issues for me. I would personally recommend starting with the Crossroads saga before reading this, since I believe it likely contains pertinent information not provided in this book (if you're a detail oriented person at least.) - Katie
