Angel of Death by Eamonn Hickson

Angel of DeathBook Description:

Tormented by dreams and visions from an early age, Emily Dunhurst battled her way through childhood, missed the excitement of teenage years, yet still managed to arrive in her twenties with some shard of sanity. 

But, when the Angel of Death appears at her grandmother’s bedside, Emily’s world is remolded in pain and worry. Her ability to see otherworldly creatures is the only way to stop the Creator’s Servant—and save her family. 

However, Emily soon finds out that angels are hard to stop.

My Thoughts:
I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this one or not, but I did.  Emily has always seen demons, shadows, or whatever you want to call them.  The only one who believed her was her Grandmother.  The Angel of Death has had an interesting time himself making enemies and doing a job that was not given to him.  When he meets Emily at her dying Grandmother's bedside, neither of them are the same.  Emily is determined that he won't take anymore of her family but he gets his orders from a higher power...right?
Ok, from the get go, I'm a Christians with specific beliefs about angels, demons, heaven, hell, etc.  That being said, this is a fiction book, and a well written one at that!  The author does a great job of giving us a vivid picture of hell and heaven.  The traitor made me so mad, but so did the lack of thought on the part of some of the angels.  I loved how Emily completely loved her family even if they weren't that supportive of her through her problems.  The demons are creepy!  Angel of Death has a story all his own, but he chose to be good, even when the 'good' weren't good to him.  Overall, a good, original story!
I rate this a 4/5.  I would love to read what the author comes up with next!

Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
