Review: Halo of the Nephilim by Dina Rae

Halo of the NephilimHalo of the Nephilim by Dina Rae
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What I didn't like. Some of the language was a bit strong for my liking. Other readers may not think so and may consider that it is necessary for the characters to be presented in that manner. Other than that, this is definitely a book I recommend to any reader looking for a fresh voice.

Did you find that the cover and title represented what the story was really about? Absolutely. I'm not sure why she chose the colour purple when I felt a fiery red would have suited the story more. Armaros is being punished and his mind is overworked with how to stop the torture so the blurred cover image could have something to do with how he felt throughout the book.

What did you think of the story structure? Loved it. Each character is given equal attention so this reader didn't feel like one was overshadowing the other. This sense of connection is no easy task and the emotional connection readers are offered from the characters pulled me in immediately especially the scene when Ava realises that Harriet is her only friend and she asks Harriet for more information about her past.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
