This book is about Angels. But don’t jump to the wrong conclusion! Angels don’t have to be good-natured, do they?
Dane Cobain is telling us a story about mysterious disappearances all over the world and rumours that Angels are responsible for them by picking out the sinners. Media and Newspapers are spreading the word about the disappearances and murders and panic is about to rise among the world population.
Is it a coincidence that just at the same time CERN, the European Organisation of Nuclear Research – who searches for the “God” particle – happens to test its new Large Hadron Collider which was designed to offer insights into the creation of the universe? Does the LHC even lead to the destruction of mankind?
Honestly, this is my first book review and I am so relieved! I am a lucky girl to have had the chance to write my first review about such a gripping story. It took me only one day to finish it and I really enjoyed reading it.
The story is told from different angles, there is no specific protagonist or point of view, but this works in favour of an easy read as same as short chapters and the fluent writing style.
The main character is Father Montgomery, a priest in Scotland, who has to cope with secrets of his own. He is an old man and as lots of old priests he is wise and a decent fellow. Montgomery is a good friend of Robert Jones who is struggling with his existence in this world, and who relies on the helpful advice’s of Father Montgomery.
I prefer short chapters, but at some point the story would have given more material to go deeper and I had the feeling the main character, Father Montgomery, had more to tell and was somehow left out.
However, the plot has interesting aspects, it is a gripping read and perfect for people who appreciate an apocalyptic thriller with sympathetic characters. The book is not that big, so I think it would be a perfect entertainment on vacation at the beach.
This book by Dane Cobain gives you the pleasant feeling a good story leaves behind, and I am curious now to read more of this author.
