Before I got the offer to review this book, I hadn't heard anything about this author. Now, I want to start the second in the series like as soon as possible. I seem to have a huge thing for angel of all sorts right now.

Okay, where to start? To say I really liked this book is not much of a review, so I try to come up with something better.

I have mixed feeling towards the characters of the book. On one hand, I really liked Gabriella who is a strong and independent woman with loner tendencies, a woman who still struggles with events from her childhood that made her lose the first five years of her life.

4.0 von 5 Sternen What a book!, 5. Oktober 2010
Jenny Pox tells a powerful and intense story of an outsider who has to struggle to live with her horrible power. It begins with a very disturbing scene introducing Jenny as toddler playing with a snake and killing her with her touch. It's disturbing because even if she's so small, Jenny is already aware of her power: she knows she has to stick to some rules:

Never touch people. Never talk to anybody but Daddy.

And, above all, never tell anyone. She's also aware that she's the reason her mom is dead, which is really a sad thing to know for a girl at that age. What makes the scene even harder to bare is the fact that her dad can't even confort her through direct… Mehr dazu
