Christine Byrne has been writing all her life. From a young age she wrote songs and poetry and continued writing into her adult years.
As a writer Christine has written about important news matters relating to the environment, that have been published on line.
The Angel Sagas are a series of fictional stories, that intertwine fantasy and modern world issues. Each individual story involves one key Angel who has a specific mission to undertake, and in order to carry out their mission they must walk as a human.
Each story within the Angel Sagas focuses on a specific topic. Loki's Path is a story about greed and corruption within a political system, the key to its exposure residing with a homeless man in London. Evangeline's Mission touches on the destructive nature man has on the planet and Jadine's battle explores a new level of terrorism, that if not stopped, could affect the security of the whole world.
When inspired by modern issues, Christine creatively sculptures a plot that joins together the issues at hand, with the fantasy of Angelic intervention.
Research for further Angel Sagas are underway, and Christine is also working on her biggest novel, "The 4th Grace" which will bring the Angel Saga's to their final conclusion.

I’ll say it up front that I’m a sucker for Christmas stories. So I’m tempted to give this a higher rating right off the bat. The story itself revolves around a Christmas angel coming to Earth in human form to help a miserable fellow rediscover the joy of the holidays and good will toward humankind.
If that sounds like it’s a nod to “A Christmas Carol,” then it pretty much is. The story does seem to follow the same beats, just with some swearing and a more Christian slant. That slant actually helps the story in some regards. There are some stroke of luck occurrences for the characters, but the explanation that “angels did it” kind of makes up for it.
However, the main plot and the outcome aren’t as fortunate. If you’re familiar with Christmas stories at all, you can see the ending coming very early. There are a couple of spins to it— which I’m not entirely sure work— but that’s about it. There are some proofreading errors, although it’s nothing that detracts from the story. The book also has a habit of over-explaining emotions and motivations at times as well.
Like any short story should, it stays focused on the plot and charges forward, head down, letting you finish it in a couple of hours tops. So, yes, the book has some problems, yet it’s over before you know it and has some interesting ideas when it comes to angels. Since it’s free, you’re not losing anything by checking it out.
