Synopsis- Audie the Angel is back, and so is the Angel Army and Cave, her human friend! After the Aging Plague hit Earth, Audie’s human dad was taken to the Afterworld, under the Earth, and her friends Luce and Vestia, two angels, are there as well, taken by their evil father, Audie needs to get them all back. With the help of her mom, Cave, and the rest of the Angel Army, they begin to venture into the Afterworld…

What I Thought- This is a thrilling conclusion to the Angel Archives series. There is a good amount of recap from the previous books that doesn’t give away a lot of the major surprise from earlier books. I really enjoy when an author has the writing skills to bring the reader up-to-speed from previous novels in a series but still not give away too much in case you want to go back and read the books. This book has a lot of fun things going on, while also a lot of serious things. I like how, even though the story mentions Heaven and the Afterworld, it doesn’t really mention any sort of god or devil – treating the concepts respectfully. The characters are rather fully developed by this time, and it is interesting to see how they interact. M. Kathryn’s writing style is very well-formed and keeps you reading. There were a lot of plot twists that I did not see coming. Overall a very enjoyable read, appropriate for all ages, and a great example of a well-done self-published book.

I give this book five out of five bookworms!fivebooks
