Kurzbeschreibung

The Difference between vampires and angels? Angels are real.

In movie development along with Angel in the Storm, Book 2 by Motion Picture Pro Studios.

Fifteen-year-old Megan Laughlin has a gift—or what seems like a curse at times. Megan sees angels and demons.
Megan knows her destiny is to protect her friends against dark angels who try to sway them into situations that can destroy their lives, their souls, and their eternity.
At school, she recognizes Judas, an über popular boy, as an evil angel hell-bent on destroying her and everyone she loves. As Judas spreads horrible rumors and overdoses two of her classmates at a rave, Megan realizes the enormity of his power. While classmates die, Megan, with the help of an angel, Johnny, and a team of friends will face the fight of their lives as they battle Judas.

Megan thinks God hasn’t given her any “special” powers, but discovers she has what she needs as she confronts Judas and his seemingly unconquerable power.

Appropriate for ages 12 on up.
AOL recommended the Angel in the Shadows series as the alternative to Twilight on the "ALA's Top Ten Most Challenged Book List of 2010"

HASH(0x9b5fe240) von 5 Sternen Great idea but horribly executed ***SPOILERS*** 24. November 2013
Von jedichick070588 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
First, this is /Christian/ fiction. For those who don't want an overt message about Christianity, moral and ethical talk, or Biblical theology--don't read this. It's clearly stated that Megan sees angels and demons and spiritual warfare is a main theme in this book. If you're looking for something where the message is more covert, go read Dekker, Meyers, or Peretti.

I love supernatural/spiritual books with an action/adventure plot, a splash of drama, and tons of character development. When I read this book was a "page turner" I was excited to try it but I knocked this book out in about 3 hours because if I put it down, I knew I was never going to pick it up again. This book has a spiritual theme but lacks action and adventure, the drama is laughable, and the character development is non-existent.

The book is written in first person: a popular point of view today but very hard to execute properly and this book fails fantastically. Combined with the fact the main character is a 15 year old girl; reading is uncomfortable at the best times and painful at the worst. The grammar and syntax felt as though I was reading bad fan fiction: an overuse of commas, missing apostrophes, misspelled words, poor sentence structure, and the list goes on. At points it's hard to follow who says what in a conversation because there's no flow and structure. Many times I ended up reading a conversation not knowing who was saying what because of this.

The main character, Megan, is 2 dimensional at the best of times and cringe-worthy at the worst. She's nowhere near the "typical" Christian teenager of the 21st century. Many ideals are correct (knowledge of right and wrong, waiting to have sex until after marriage, pro-life, stable family life, etc) but very poorly represented. Akin to fan fiction, Megan can be classified as a "Mary Sue" character--she doesn't have any particular skill set before seeing angels and demons and afterwards, she becomes some kind of "kiddie-lite" Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The answers come naturally to her or are handed to her on a silver platter. There are no obstacles for her to overcome because of this and therefore, the story is very flat.

The supporting characters of Seth, Robby, Johnny, Mandy, Vania, and Carrie are combinations of cliches and stereotypes. The perfect-Christian-boyfriend, the goofy-best-friend/sidekick-of-the-boyfriend, the ever-serious-task-master-angel, the troubled-best-friend-who-craves-affirmation-because-she-hasn't-found-the-Way-yet, the goth-turned-Christian-who-has-inside-knowledge, and the secondary-best-friend-from-camp-who-is-the-girlfriend-of-the-sidekick. That is all you need to know about those characters because that's all that's given in the book. These characters play out every cliche and there's no real surprise to anything they do. Completely 1 dimensional support and easily forgettable.

Judas is laughable as a villain. He barely causes the chaos and mayhem expected from a demon intent on destruction and seems happier gloating over his plans to an either annoyed or scared Megan. He arrives in chapter 6 of a 10 chapter book and disappears in chapter 9. For the supposed villain, he's barely in the book and his appearances are truly random.

The entire story changes in chapter 9 from a spiritual battle to an anti-abortion message--a strange twist that left me with an uneasy feeling. Mandy, with her affirmation-craving ways, becomes pregnant even after Megan warned her not to have sex before marriage. The father demands an abortion to the point of looking up the number himself and offering to pay for the procedure. Mandy takes him up on the offer despite Megan's protests and goes to the clinic.
The biggest twist is Mandy's mother (named Farrah, presumably a nod to Farrah Fawcett), a typical there's-no-way-I-can-be-30 woman forever seeking youth, men, and alcohol, hauls butt over to the clinic to stop Mandy from making the "same mistake I did". In the next paragraph, Megan (who tags along with Mandy's mom) learns the clinic is actually a Christian pregnancy center and is informed that women who seek an abortion typically gravitate to drugs and alcohol. This might be trying to explain Mandy's mother's behavior especially since she admits to "killing her baby".

Because of the idea of the plot, this book earns one star. Because of the horrible execution and lack of everything from grammar to character development, this book earns one star. If you're in middle school, this book might be a good read. Anyone reading this book past high school will be sorely disappointed if they have high expectations of their reading material.

HASH(0x9b5fe48c) von 5 Sternen Good Story and Message, Ready for Book 2 2. Dezember 2011
Von Michael Gallagher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Lisa Grace has written a compelling story that captures your imagination, and is certainly a relief from all of the vampire paranormal fiction that seems to be in your face everywhere. She paints an interesting scenario of angels and demons battling out in real time, with a high school girl as the focal point and a solid reinforcement of what is right and wrong. I would imagine this title would be compelling to the high school crowd in addition to adults.

I finished this book a week ago, and I am still thinking about various scenes from the book: that's impressive (to me) due to the volume of books I read each month, which tells me it must have been pretty good. I'm looking forward to reading the second book in the series, as the author leaves you with a good ending that makes you want to continue the story.

There are a few typos / misspelled words in the Kindle version that are annoying, but don't take away from the story. For parents, I would recommend this for your high school aged child, but think about it in advance as it does discuss premarital sex, pregnancy, etc. in high school. While 99.9999% of our high school kids are fully aware of the birds and the bees, parents should think about it before letting younger readers have a go at this one.

HASH(0x9b5fe450) von 5 Sternen Great book! 13. Dezember 2011
Von Savannah (Books With Bite) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I loved stories of heaven and hell. Good vs. Evil. So when this book came upon my lap, I knew I wanted to read it right away. This book started off slow for me, and it slowly picked up the pace of the book.

What I like most about this book is the plot. I loved reading about the war raging and growing on earth's plane. Megan has been gifted by God and knows that she must do everything in her power to fight. I loved that Megan didn't depend on any super powers but merely her faith in God. Megan faith is strong and the hope that she gives the reader raises faith in them as well. One thing I didn't like is that Megan felt to mature. She is after all a 15 year old.

The plot line of this book is slow and little predictable. I kept waiting for something more to pop up at me. While I enjoyed the angels, faith, and God, this book did grab my attention as I wanted it to.

Overall, this book is a good book. It has great morals in it, lots of faith and truth about a war that is going on even now. If you want a book with real biblical truth, then this book is for you.

HASH(0x9b5fe744) von 5 Sternen Great concept, but poorly written. 28. Dezember 2012
Von CrazyWriter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I received a free copy of this book for review purposes awhile back, and was positively ecstatic to finally have it on my Kindle and start reading. The premise was intriguing, and just up my alley, as I am very much a fan of the Frank Peretti style of books, taking the all-too-real supernatural elements of our world and thrusting a seemingly ordinary character into the position of facing them, standing his (or her) ground, and ultimately trusting God for the victory. The idea of a young girl suddenly finding herself with the ability and responsibility to fight against the dark angels who seek her destruction and that of those around her drew me in, and I opened the book with much anticipation for what was to come.

However, I was almost instantly let down by the book's contents. The story, while intriguing, is told in first person, which I normally love, but is so riddled with bad sentence composition and awkwardly written scenes that I found it impossible to get into it. The dialogue and many of the protagonist's romantic scenes with her boyfriend seemed terribly cheesy. The characters themselves disappointed me. They were too one-dimensional for me to care about them, especially Seth and, considering Megan is the protagonist, I had hoped to find her a more believable character. Pivotal moments were delivered punchily and without much to make one feel their significance, with the exception of one rescue scene early on which did manage to pull me to the edge of my seat before the next letdown came.

Still, I gritted my teeth and made it over halfway through -- all the way to Judas's introduction -- before I finally gave up. The premise had a lot of potential, but I don't feel the final product did it any justice. Like I said, the premise is killer, and overall the plot wasn't bad. I would be interested in going to see a movie of it if one were released, but the book itself was a terrible letdown, especially since most of its pitfalls could have been avoided with the help of a good editor.

Von Carolyn T. Bates - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was very curious about this book after hearing about it on a podcast. I admit I'm not a massive Twilight fan but I like paranormal themed YA and I thought it would be interesting to see a more actual scripture based take on angels and demons/devils. I'm agnostic but I figured that the books mined a mythos that's rich and has 2,000 years of depth and background to it so it definitely had source material to play with. This book was not good however. It was obvious (the angel is named Judas, really?), the writing very simplistic and dull, and the worst part was the formatting. I don't know if this is some issue with Amazon or the book's newest edition but the spacing is awful and makes it very, very hard to read. Mostly, though, it's flat and everyone is about as well drawn as a cardboard cutout. Just a waste of an interesting idea and a good mythology source.
