Product Description

About the Author

Aaron Patterson is the author of the best-selling WJA series, as well as two Digital Shorts: 19 and The Craigslist Killer. He was home-schooled and grew up in the west. Aaron loved to read as a small child and would often be found behind a book, reading one to three a day on average. This love drove him to want to write, but he never thought he had the talent. His wife Karissa prodded him to try it, and with this encouragement, he wrote Sweet Dreams, the first book in the WJA series, in 2008. Airel is his first teen series, and plans for more to come are already in the works. He lives in Boise, Idaho with his family, Soleil, Kale and Klayton. Chris White has an award for reading 750 books in one school year — from the 3rd grade. So yes, he’s more of a nerd than Aaron. Chris loves history, Sherlock Holmes, and anything that’s not virtual, like old motorcycles and mechanical typewriters. He also doesn’t get why we have these things called “smart phones” when all they do is make people dumber. Chris recently celebrated 10 years of marriage with his wife, April, and has two boys: Noah, age 8, and Jaden, age 3, who inspired the Great Jammy Adventure series; the OK-to-color-in picture books. Chris is working on a short story called The Marsburg Diary that will further explore the prologue to Airel, and he is finishing up his first novel, entitled K: phantasmagoria, due out in 2011. Chris has a major crush on Audrey Hepburn, who is now dead. His wife is okay with all of this.

Airel has been experiencing some signs of illness recently. She's also falling hard for handsome newcomer Michael, and it is during their first date that she witnesses a murder. The killer knows that she saw him and soon he is stalking her, looking for an opportunity to silence her.

This is a book of two parts which merge well. The first is the tale of Airel and seems initially fairly mundane despite the odd hints that things aren't quite normal. Airel is a teenager falling in love for the first time, who is unlucky enough to witness a murder and the killer knows she can identify him. The second is far more magical. Set in 1250 B.C. it tells the tale of Kreios; an angel who chose to fall in love and fall from heaven. He is dealing with the grief of losing his mortal wife, whilst he and his beloved daughter are at risk from angelic enemies the Brotherhood.

The 2 stories quickly merge as Airel discovers her unusual heritage. The pace, action and fantasy elements all work well, plus the histories of Kreios and the Brotherhood are interesting and creative. I did though easily anticipate the several twists these authors produced fairly early on in the book; however "Airel" still proved to be a highly entertaining read despite the lack of surprises.

I originally read this well over two years ago before I started reviewing and I loved it, I always intended to continue on and read the whole series but after the first two I kept checking for 'Michael' and eventually forgot. I mention the first time I read this because I loved it and if I'd have reviewed it at the time I would have given 5 stars, I've just downloaded the whole series, which at 77p is incredible value and since it been so long I started at the beginning and I was surprised to discover that I didn't enjoy it anywhere near as much as I'd expected, now you could argue that I knew what was going to happen and yes you'd be right but Airel annoyed me, a lot. I'm sure why this happened this time and not before, I read a lot more these days in fact I read all the time so maybe my tolerance level has changed but I don't remember her irritating me before.
Airel is your average seventeen year old girl, her best friend is Kim and on the whole they're happy but then Airel starts to feel unwell, a gorgeous new boy, Michael starts at school and Airel suspects that she's not normal.
The other part of this book which weaves itself between the modern tale is set in 1250 B.C. in Arabia where Kreios is an angel who found himself in love with a mortal and 'fell' only to lose the woman he loved in childbirth leaving him with a daughter to protect from the evil forces of the Brotherhood.
This all sounds fantastic and I've struggled to understand what didn't really work for me this time and it comes back to Airel, I didn't really feel any real spark or chemistry between her and Michael and some of the decisions she made were 'interesting' at best and that was the problem she's seventeen and 'normal' yet she takes everything on herself. So I liked the 'past' more than the present because I didn't really buy Airel as a real character.

I got this eBook when it was available as a free download from Amazon, I had heard good things about it, loved the cover and wanted to find out for myself what it was like.

I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed, although there were some parts that I enjoyed there just wasn't enough of them and on the whole I found it really difficult to stay interested. Normally when I'm reading nothing can distract me from the book but with this I was very easily distracted and didn't feel the urgent need to carry on to find out what happens next.

I did like the idea for the story and some of the parts I enjoyed were: Airel's reaction when she first saw Michael, the cinema scene that got my heart pounding and raised lots of questions, and the final battle where everything seemed to happen so quickly.

This book jumps back and forth from the present day to 1250 B.C. and while this history was vital to the rest of the story I think this was one of the problems for me, I found myself rushing through the 1250 B.C. parts because it just didn't interest me, there was too much of it.

Towards the end of the book there were a few unexpected twists which piqued my interest for a while and I felt that the characters were finally who they should be, they seemed to be much more confident in themselves.

This is a dark story with some surprising twists that I'm sure plenty of people would really enjoy with its battles and history, unfortunately it just wasn't for me.

First of all I would like to express just how much i was enjoying this book, however when it decided to change tenses I became extremely uneasy and quite lost. Even though I felt this I thought it would make some more sense if i continued reading. However this did not happen.
I was enjoying the present day part of the book so through my confusion I continued on. But then I realized how little of the book I had left to read and when I did finish I was more than extremely disappointed. The final chapter did not relate to anything that had already been written. Furthermore the penultimate chapter seemed to end quite suddenly and did not have any more to carry on with.
Over all I enjoyed parts of it however I didn't feel as though it was a complete book
