Rating: 4.5 stars

The stranger’s cloak had fallen back, and with it, a long, white, blood-stained wing.

When Melaia, a young priestess, witnesses the gruesome murder of a stranger in the temple courtyard, age-old legends recited in song suddenly come to life. She discovers wings on the stranger, and the murderer takes the shape of both a hawk and a man.

Angels. Shape-shifters. Myths and stories—until now.

Melaia finds herself in the middle of a blood feud between two immortal brothers who destroyed the stairway to heaven, stranding angels in the earthly realm. When the feud turns violent and Melaia becomes a target, she finds refuge with a band of angels attempting to restore the stairway. But the restoration is impossible without the repayment of an ancient debt—the “breath of angel, blood of man,” a payment that involves Melaia’s heart, soul, and destiny.

I really enjoyed Breath of Angel. I thought it was a brilliant start to a series. It was a page turner that I could scarcely put down.

I loved the idea the plot. I can’t wait to see how the story develops over future books. The world was so easy to get caught up in. I loved the new creatures that were introduced, I never would have thought about draks or anything like that. Angels were definitely introduced in an entirely new way.

Melaia kind of bugged me. Her mindset was annoying and I found her immature. I wanted to slap some sense into her at times. That aside I loved all the other characters. I’m particularly interested to see what Trevin’s role will be in future books. I really liked him, I thought he was really admirable. Jarrod was another favorite character, I really liked him.

This book is a must read. I absolutely loved it, and am already counting down the days until the next book will be out.

    I really liked the book. I didn't think it would be that interesting but I thought wrong. It's one of my favs now.
