I was able to snag a copy of Paradox from Smashwords. I was kinda interested, because I had never really read any Angel type fiction before. The book started out really nicely, with some interesting background about the Angels and their different houses. I was definitely pulled in by these characters, they seemed to have depth and the civil war that seemed to be going on between them definitely excited me to find out more.
Where I lost interest was in the switch from the Angels and their possibly evil natures up above to the people down on earth. I know that the author was attempting to set a background of the human characters and how Angels interact with the humans below, but I felt disconnected from them. I think that I would have liked to see more of the Angels we had started out with interspersed with the humans (I haven’t finished, so I’m not sure if this actually happens, or if the Angels that are interacting with the humans are from the opposing house). What made it harder to get through were some of the word choices used that were a bit confusing for me to understand.
I definitely really liked how the story started out and that part of the story still interests me, however, the bit of human background has sort of burnt me out at the moment and I’m not quite sure yet how much they fit into the story.
I also posted this on goodreads. Check me out over there and add me: Goodreads!
