- My First Date with Jolene, and Her Cousin, Billy-Bob
on June 13, 2011
Angel writes a clever tale here. His narrator's voice is snappy and clever, and, even better, the story grabs you and will not let go, dragging you through one disaster after another to a totally satisfying end with a surprising twitch before letting you go and eager for more of this welcome addition to stories.
Adults and Young Adults will enjoy Angel's writing.
The teaser for the fantasy mystery novel afterward had this reader scrambling to buy it. Good stuff
- Centaur of the Crime
on June 24, 2011
Angel has written a stand up fantasy mystery. Dayna Chrissie, a Medical Examiner in Los Angeles, is summoned to investigate a puzzling murder scene. While there, we get a hint of a romantic entanglement with a detective, and the first of a number of heart rending shocks as someone tries to murder her. She absently pockets a medallion she finds in the murder victim's chest, which turns out to be a summoning talisman. Whisked away to the magical world of Andeluvia, she is greeted by a handsome centaur wizard who explains she has been brought there to solve the murder of the King. When it turns out this murder is connected to the one she had been investigating in LA, she discovers hardly any one really wants the mystery solved. Still, she presses on with advice from a wise old owl and help from an aging gryphon with kitten soft fur, an unlucky fayleene with a broken antler, and the centaur wizard, who has failed to live up to his father's, the centaur king, expectations. Together, this motley band must solve the puzzle and do it before a war between humans and centaurs can rip the magical world apart. I was constantly worried about the characters as Angel puts the lot of them in tight spots as this fast paced mystery unfolds. I eagerly pressed the next page button all the way to the end, where he wraps everything up satisfactorily and hints at the possibility sequel. I say, "Hurry up!"
- The Bikini Wedding
on July 06, 2011
This is a sweet Christian story that will appeal to young adults and adults. The characters are well drawn, the voice is distinct, and the story heartwarming and funny by turns.
- If Wishes Were Husbands
on Nov. 08, 2011
This is a wonderful book. Kyne's writing style is accessible, whimsical, and refreshingly intimate. It's just magical enough without falling over into paranormal chick lit and offers an examination of the realities of a dream come true. And the Brits have the best words for things -- Squiffy. It makes want to drink just so I can use it! I read as much for the story as the British dialect.
Now, where's the next one?
- Skin and Bone
on Dec. 09, 2011
This is a lusciously drawn book. The images are stark and beautiful by turns. A very different book brought to life by a master storyteller. I want to see what tattoos she has.
- The Magic of Fabulous
on Dec. 25, 2011
In this alternative world full of magic, Eva Farkas lives in Budapest on the eve of World War II. Her best friend, a powerful witch, leaves on a dangerous errand for the vampire master of Budapest, and Eva finds herself alone, with a young woman to care for in a world that is dangerous enough for the magical. With no explicit magic of her own, Eva must find a way to protect herself and her young, innocent charge, using only her own "magic of fabulous".
The book is lush and Eva is a lively, brave, and precocious young Jewess with a perky and intimate voice. I thoroughly enjoyed the world building and worried for her as she made not only her way in this world, but found a way to strike a blow for herself and her people against literally monstrous Nazis.
- A Day at the Unicorn Races (Short Story)
on Dec. 25, 2011
A bubbly, thoroughly enjoyable romantic fantasy by a master storyteller!
