Glory meets the priest and is assigned 3 supernatural guardians. Can a vampire, angel and witch help save Glory and the world?
This was such a surprise. The cover and blurb doesn't really give much away so I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading it. Well I'm so glad to say that I really enjoyed it.
Glory is an average teenager until her world is turned upside down. The plague is sweeping the world and everyone who contracts it dies. People are dying left and right and when her dad comes down with it she is devastated. Next thing Glory knows is that she is sick, she knows that her chance of survival is nill so when she eventually wakes up she is confused. Her mother tells her that she had to give her the last of the cure. From that second on, Glorys life is not her own. She ends up on the run with beings she didn't know existed and her dog, whom she never really took much notice of. Glory was an awesome heroine. She questions everything and has her, whoa is me, moments but still does whats needed of her. She is only 17 and is thrust into things she hasn't a clue how to handle, but handle them she does. She is strong, determined and an overall average girl!
The author brings 3 different supernatural beings to be Glorys Guardians and I really loved that element. Where else would you read about an Angel, a Witch and a Vampire working together to save humanity!! I loved the lore she through in as well. Never have I read a book with so much in it that works so well together. Apart from the supernatural element, we also have the religious element and demonic elements as well. It was fascinating.
Overall Glory was a pleasant surprise. It's a thrilling, fascinating and fantastical read. The book is centered on Glorys journey but each of the other characters have a bit of their story told. Glorys dog also stole some of the story, Hallelujah was awesome!! This book has a bot of everything in it to satisfy everyone. The author weaved such an amazing and somewhat realistic story that I flew through the pages. The pandemic is scary and made doubly so when we learn the truth behind it! I cant wait to dive into book 2 and see where Glorys journey takes us.

I read this book in one sitting, because I just couldn't bear not knowing what was going to happen. Glory is an interesting story that straddles the sci-fi/paranormal/urban fantasy line. Ms. O'Branagan did an amazing job of capturing the uncertainty and optimism that often go hand in hand with the age group this book centers on. Her characters seem like real people, with flaws, doubts, and fears just like anyone else. I really enjoyed this story, and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series. :-)
I wasn't sure what to expect, as I haven't read many books with supernatural beings in them, but it was a totally believable story with wonderful characters.
It was so good, I had trouble putting it down until I was finished.
O'Branagan has a lovely writing style that is immensely enjoyable to read.
I highly recommend this book!
It was an interesting take and clever mash-up on the plethora of genres and included a peppering of deeper concepts about God and free will, faith, mortality and sacrifice for the greater good. Despite all that is going on in this book, I feel like it didn't over reach. Each character had depth, consistency and believability.
Sure there was a love tri-angle and an a little bit of teenage insta-love but at least a bit more believable than a lot of the other insta-love stories i have read.
