When the young priestess Melaia finds a winged stranger in the courtyard, myths and legends come to live before her eyes. It’s hard to classify this novel: is it sci-fi, fantasy, or supernatural thriller? It doesn’t fit into a neat little category, and isn’t any worse for that.
Its main fault is the complex web of plots Meleia falls into. It’s difficult to keep track of character’s motives and alliances, and some of Meleia’s history is slightly cliché, but I found Breath of Angel to be an enjoying read. 3.5 stars
I received a free copy of this book through Waterbrook Media’s Blogging for Books program, but was not required to write a positive review.
