CounterPoint - Book Review

Genres: Action Adventure, Paranormal

     This book has an incredibly interesting premise. Earth is merely an experiment on God's part, one of many different ecosystems set up throughout the galaxy. It is up to the angels to watch out over the experiment and keep it going. But something has gone wrong. Demons and monsters are spreading evil through the world exponentially and the archangels are debating if it is time to shut down the experiment. One family with special powers teams up with a few rogue angels to save the human experiment.

     The storyline is highly entertaining. The editing errors aren't any worse than many books I have read recently. The worst thing about this book is that you will definitely want to read the rest of the trilogy, which the author is still working on, so be prepared to wait. I will spare my usual readers from yet another rant about errors and cliffhangers - I'm sure everyone is just as tired of hearing it as I am of writing it, and I honestly just don't have the energy for it.

     One nice aspect about this book is that even though it does deal with angels and demons, it doesn't require any religious beliefs. There is no bible thumping involved and yet doesn't bash those principles that believers hold so dear. The action is fast paced but not rushed to the point where scenic descriptions, character reactions, etc. are left out, as many first authors have a tendency to do. All in all, a decent read that I found quite favorable.

I give it 4 star review graphic 4 stars!
