Book Review: Breath of Angel by Karyn Henley
A fantasy kingdom inhabited by dwarves, woodland creatures, priestesses and…angels? Such is the setting for the book Breath of Angel by Karyn Henley. Melaia, a young priestess in training, is suddenly thrust into the middle of a conflict between good and evil angels and their descendants(!). The angelology is based loosely on biblical angels, and some Christian themes are found throughout the story.
Despite initial misgivings, I found myself drawn in by the story about halfway through. I could even see myself reading the sequels as when they are published. Henley’s writing is solid, and she maintains enough of a level of suspense to keep the reader interested. Another strong point is her character development, in which she masterfully leaves the reader wondering as to whether a good character might actually be evil, or vice-versa.
So if you into the Fantasy/Adventure genre you might enjoy Breath of Angel. Just don’t develop your theology of angels around what you read.
Don’t forget! This and other great books are available at our Amazon bookstore. A purchase there is a help to our ministry.
