Review by: penwoman on Oct. 24, 2017 :
Bright Angels Descending held my interest from the first page to the last. In this fascinating novel about two Italian sisters and a brother Dr Perna has created a believable story in which bright angels with attitude and personality descend.

‘Who,’ Guilana’s best friend asks, ‘is Mr Tall, Tanned and Tasty?’

Unknown to Guilana, who has experienced much in a short time and reached a critical point in her life, the stranger in town is Michael, a messenger who tells her she is his assignment and that she will be offered a job.
She doesn’t believe him but after an interview at the International Antiterrorism Agency with the director, Giacomo Carlo Leoni, the charismatic, handsome thirty-six-year old son of an Italian duke and an American mother, he offers her a job.

In this well-written novel, Perna uses her knowledge as a military analyst specialising in strategic communications to enhance the plots in Bright Angels Descending. She also employs her American/Italian heritage to add depth to the novel

I enjoyed her descriptions which bring the characters to life, e.g. ‘For an instant so brief Guilana thought she had imagined it, the image of the successful business executive wavered and a man with a sleek powerful build of a warrior, his face illuminated by the light reflecting off a gold, muscled cuirass, stood in its place. The Angel whose name meant ‘who is like God’ gazed down at her, his eyes filled with tenderness.”

Dr Perna’s description of the Archangel Michael’s compassion and tenderness set shivers up and down my spine.

There are many twists and turns in this novel which swept me into realms in which I didn’t need to suspend my belief in the possibility of their existence.

Bright Angels Descending held my interest from the first page to the last. In this fascinating novel about two Italian sisters and a brother Dr Perna has created a believable story in which bright angels with attitude and personality descend.
