Blurb; Oblivio salvationem Angelis opperitur
Oblivion awaits the Angel’s salvation
The Boy can see lost souls.
He has never questioned the fact that he can see them. He thinks of them as the Dark Chorus. When he sets out to restore the soul of his dead mother it becomes clear that his ability comes from within him. It is a force that he cannot ignore – the last shard of the shattered soul of an angel.
To be restored to the kingdom of light, the shard must be cleansed of the evil that infects it – but this requires the corrupt souls of the living!
With the help from Makka, a psychotically violent young man full of hate, and Vee, an abused young woman full of pain, the Boy begins to kill.
Psychiatrist Dr Eve Rhodes is seconded to assist the police investigation into the Boy’s apparently random ritualistic killings. As the investigation gathers pace, a pattern emerges. When Eve pulls at the thread from an article in an old psychology journal, what might otherwise have seemed to her a terrible psychotic delusion now feels all too real…
Will the Boy succeed in restoring the angel’s soul to the light? Can Eve stop him, or will she be lost to realm of the Dark Chorus?
My Review; This is a completely different read for me, a book out of my comfort zone should we say. A bit wierd, a bit woah whats going on? Took me a while to get use to it all I.e the spirits, rituals, souls, transferring etc as I have no clue about that at all. We all have our own beliefs about that sort of thing but for me it’s not something I’ve thought about.
However, after a few chapters I got into it. SURPRISE. I know it shocked me too. I did enjoy it in the end, something different. Mix between reality and the unknown. A little fantasy, horror, suspense and thriller. This book has it all and does get dark at points. Very descriptive which brings the story more to life for me and brilliantly written. Not something I would have picked up for myself but I’m glad I got the chance to read it!
A well deserved four stars from me.
