The stranger’s cloak had fallen back, and with it, a long, white, blood-stained wing.
When Melaia, a young priestess, witnesses the gruesome murder of a stranger in the temple courtyard, age-old legends recited in song suddenly come to life. She discovers wings on the stranger, and the murderer takes the shape of both a hawk and a man.
Angels. Shape-shifters. Myths and stories—until now.
About Breath of Angel (The Angeleon Circle #1)
Book 1 in the 'Angeleon Circle' by Karyn Henley is a well-versed story of one girl, Melaia, who feels her life is perfectly planned out in priestly duties but finds her life to be later complicated. Melaia discovers a world that is both dangerous and intriguing. She is caught up in a bloody feud between two immortal brothers and angels. The land is caught in this feud and causes death for the world and nature.I'd label it an average attempt at a period fantasy. There are some good moments. The characters make for a pretty story. My final mark for this first novel is 3 out of 5. It's not bad, it's just ok.
Overall: Not too good, not too bad read
