For the most part, this was a good story, with great descriptions and a plot, if not original, sat well within the fantasy genre.

A tale of good against evil, I did think more work on the development of characters and their strengths and weaknesses would have tightened the plot and given it more credibility.

Worth a look; to witness difficult choices that are carved from disaster and sorrow and end up...

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review. But reviewing this book was not so easy, because while there were a lot of good things in it, there were also several issues that took away from the enjoyment of reading it.
The Angel’s Covenant revolves around a group known as Watchers, whose mission is to watch over humanity, naturally. Their friends and allies are known as Keepers, who are similar, but have added powers that they can use to protect the Watchers. These Watchers and Keepers are in a battle against a fallen angel and his demonic minions who wish to pretty much take over the world for themselves.
The book’s strength is in the author’s story-telling ability. Ms. Landes can describe scenes of otherworldly beauty or gory violence equally well. Her prose is clear and straightforward, without any meandering or complex sentences which lose the reader halfway through. She paints strong visual pictures that allow the reader to feel he is right in the middle of the battles between the demons and the protectors of humanity. She is adept at pacing, and the book never drags or goes off on tangents.
Although the story, and the mythology behind the different groups, seems to be more supernatural than the Christian Fantasy the book is billed as, this wasn't a major concern, as long as the roles and the powers of each group is spelled out and internally consistent.
This brings me to one of the problems I had: We know very little about who, or what, these people, who are there to protect humanity, are. For example, I had no way of knowing what abilities the Watchers or Keepers had, so if in the middle of some crisis one of them suddenly created a wall of energy for protection, or turned cave-paintings into warriors, I wondered why they could do that.

This book is a real epic. It's grand in every sense of the word. The writing is vivid and detailed, the characters are powerful and engaging, and the story is complex and elaborate. It's basically a good old fashioned tale of good versus evil, but that's where the generalisations end. The story and characters are entirely original; Lynn Landes certainly has a great imagination!

Some mention has been made in previous reviews about editing. I can only assume that this has been done as the text flows along beautifully, with no glaring errors as far as I could see. I would recommend this book to all fans of fantasy fiction. It has all the ingredients you need to successfully whisk you away into an alternative reality full of danger and intrigue. This definitely looks set to be a really enjoyable series.

Loved the characters, the plot and the unfolding of what will become a very gripping series of books. That said I would like to see the grammar & spelling errors corrected e.g were/ we're, well/we'll, were/where
Spellchecker is not enough as the errors detracted from what was otherwise a great story - a decent proof reader should be considered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing! Next book please! 16 Jan. 2015
By Renee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Elina was twelve when her life changed forever. That was when the fallen angel Raphaim came to her village and slaughtered her family. That was also when-in her rage, pain, fear, and sadness-she unleashed a burst of power that almost destroyed the Fallen and learned that she was more than a Watcher, she was a Keeper. After escaping the burning village, she made a new home far away where she could learn to harness and use her powers. But Raphaim will stop at nothing to get to her and get her power for himself. Will she be able to learn enough to survive and defend those she is supposed to protect? Or will our world be plunged into darkness?
Malach is the Archangel tasked with protecting and teaching Elina until she is ready to fulfill her destiny. He knows she is more powerful than anyone expected; he also knows she is more broken and angry than anyone expected and he must tread lightly. She must learn to control her power and, more importantly, she must learn to trust. But there is trouble brewing in the heavens that will make his mission much harder...and much more dangerous.

Lynn Landes has come out swinging. This first book of The Covenant series lets you know she means business. The Angel's Covenant is a truly remarkable book...once you start reading you are hooked!!
Landes writing is great-she has a straightforward manner with the story and doesn't have extra things thrown into the mix that don't fit, but you do not feel cheated. She doesn't mince words and yet still manages to put so much into it. She uses her words wisely.
The same goes for her descriptions. Landes places you right in the middle of all of the action and let's you see everything perfectly. You see her world the way she sees it, which is beautiful and terrifying, but she never overdoes it. It never slows down the story or distract you from what is going on.
The characters in The Angel's Covenant help make the story what it is. If you have an amazing story and only so-so characters the story suffers. That is definitely not the case here. You care about these characters, you believe in these characters, you want to see them succeed. You even relate to the characters. Landes created believable, relatable, complex, human characters and did so 100%. They are fully developed and you see that immediately.
This is not your typical good vs evil or heaven vs hell story. Landes has really made this her own and done it in a beautiful way. You are on the edge of your seat through it all, and it really is hard to put down!! (At one point while writing this I went back to the book to look at something and wound up reading on from there! An hour later I realized I might want to finish this lol. Yes-it is that good.) There are some places that could use some editing (punctuation, etc) but that doesn't take anything away from the brilliance of this book. I will definitely be continuing the series!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars This should be called I am Shadow 29 July 2014

This story had a terrible editor. Spelling, using the wrong sense with words and either omitted words, or words that didn't even belong in the sentence. I did enjoy the tale of the Angels, watchers, and keepers, however. From the ending (which it didn't seem to do), I can only assume that the story will continue with the next in the series. I really think that it could have been concluded in a better way. Most stories in a series, are written in a manner in which each book can be read and concluded as an individual novel. This one just didn't seem to "end", and intentionally opened up for the next in the series, without any indication of ending the first parts of the story. I personally will not be reading the rest of the series. You, on the other hand, should make that decision for yourself. One man's trash, is another man's treasure...right? As I already stated, I did enjoy the story, just not enough to go on in the series. To you it may be golden...to me...it was a waste of my time and money. Good luck to those of you who adventure into these novels. I really do hope that others get out of this book, what I couldn't. I also hope, that if you do decide to read it, that you will enjoy it more than I did. Happy reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 29 Jun. 2014
By Ally McMahon - Published on Amazon.com

The Angel’s Covenant is an enchanting story filling your senses with wonderfully dark and descriptive scenes that keep you captivated from the first page to the last.

Author Lynn Landes’ gift of vivid imagery transports you deep into the world she has created. Here you find characters such as Azrael and Raphaim who leave you with chills as they reveal their dark and destructive powers. Only when Elina (keeper of the light) and the Watchers are introduced do you feel a sense of hope and balance to the power possessed by Azrael and Raphaim.

Landes engaging dialogue and back story will keep you on the edge of your seat as you explore this complex and mystical world that she has created. The in-depth nature of story produces a broad range of life-like characters and a world that is magical, mysterious, and riveting. I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next installment of the Covenant Series!
