Review of Breath of Angel (The Angeleon Circle #1) by Karyn Henley

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       
                                                Genre:Young Adult, Fantasy 

  Paperback: 277 pgs.

Thanks for the awesome review. I love reading books, I'm sure this book is gonna be my next collection. I am looking forward to read this one. I just also want to share this review, I'm pretty sure this would be interesting too about Aluma Wallet. Thanks.

I can't say I've ever heard of this book or author, but I'm a sucker for a YA shifter/Angel story. The cover isn't too horrible either. Is the book like any others, or remind you of any authors?

Doesn't remind me of other authors. Unlike what I read, unique is all I can say.
