audieAudie the Angel and the Angel Army (first book in the  The Angel Archives)

By Erika Kathryn

206 pages – ages 9+

Published Erika Kathryn on December 1, 2012

Audie, nor her human friend, Cave, knew she was an angel. When a stranger comes to take Audie to Heaven, she is stunned. Cave accidentally sees the man (named Logos) taking Audie and Logos decides he has to take Cave now, too. Logos brings the kids to Unicorn Island in Heaven to meet 8 young Angels that make up the Angel Army. Audie and Cave join them and start training. When the elder Angels get hypnotized so that they become evil, the Angel Army realizes that they are Heaven’s only hope!

This was a very good book! I liked reading about the journey through Heaven the army takes because it really brought the team together and it teaches about teamwork. Cave and Audie are GREAT characters! I like how they sort of fit right in with the other angels. The whole premise of Heaven was interesting. Ms. Kathryn really captured the feelings of Heaven and her description of Heaven was very vivid. It was cool that everything was free and there were mythical creatures (like unicorns and fairies). I wish Heaven was like that in real-life (I say that because no living person knows what Heaven is like) and it sounds kind of cool. I like the villains too. They were very good bad-guys! 😉 The plot was sometimes a little predictable, but in some places I was totally surprised. I think the book is written well so that boys and girls would enjoy this book!  The cover art was OK. It’s kind of hard to read the title against the background. The story is a clean read and it is appropriate for all ages.

Audie and the Angel Army earns a place on my bookshelf and I am looking forward to reading book 2 of the series – Audie the Angel and the Aging Plague!

I give this book 4 out of 5 book worms.fourbooks

    Sounds like a very interesting book, Erik! When you are older, you might like The Daughter Of Smoke And Bone trilogy (of which the third one has yet to be published.) It’s more of a YA and maybe not appropriate yet, but it’s a great story!

    Interesting timing. Taylor Davis has scenes in Heaven, and I really had to stretch my imagination for some of them. I’ll have to read Ms. Kathryn’s depiction. 🙂

      Well, the book says no living can enter the place where good souls go, if that’s a start… 😉

      P.S. T.D. was AWESOME! I think it would make an excellent movie!

    Interesting choice of names. Logos is Greek for The Word (of God)!

    Erik, what do you mean when you write ” earns a place on my bookshelf?” Is this a figure of speech or a real bookcase you keep really good books on?

    Interesting review. I was just approached to review this and sent here by the author. Wasn’t sure, but now will thanks to your review. Your review has me curious. 🙂 Sorry I missed this when it posted. 😦

      It’s a bit of both because right now, I don’t have THE bookshelf out (we’re ALMOST moved in!), but when it does get put together, I will have really good books on it. 🙂
      I hope you like Audie!
