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.Read more ›
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.
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...
Spellchecker is not enough as the errors detracted from what was otherwise a great story - a decent proof reader should be considered.
