Meet Ariel: a quiet, unnoticeable girl with a hidden strength…
Life is tough for Ariel: a traumatic childhood and the constant reccurring nightmare that plagues her every night for as long as she remembers, questioning her sanity, and a secret, which she doesn’t want anyone to know and is so desperate to forget herself.
But when three new student appear in her sleepy town’s school, Ariel’s dull and measured life is thrown into turmoil, as she is drawn into an ancient celestial conflict that is bigger than her and which she will need to survive to remain herself. – goodreads link
I rated this book 4/5 stars.
The beginning of the book completely hooks on you on what is happening. Ariel has such a strong personality that it’s impossible not to find her entertaining. Immediately, I was consumed in the world of Angels had to find out who these new strangers were and who was telling the truth.
I truly enjoyed reading about Ariel’s story. I found her a captivating character that had suffered great mental and physical abuse as a child. Olga Gibbs did an excellent job of creating such interesting characters that made reading the book so much more enjoyable.
Olga Gibbs did a wonderful job of creating fantastical settings and developing them. When reading, I had no idea where this story would go. I found it such a compelling and addictive read. It can easily be read in one sitting!
I’ve never read anything of this genre before despite being a huge fan of fantasy and of the history surrounding celestial creatures. I would highly recommend this novel as a starting point for someone getting into this genre.
This dark fantasy had an enchanting blend of action, mystery and romance. I can’t wait to see what happens in Hallow and how this series develops.
