My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about darkness. Phoenix is a dark angel. One night when collecting a soul, a woman sees him and speaks to him, things which have never happened before. His boss Asmodeus thinks it is a threat and orders Phoenix to follow her. Phoenix accidently ends up being her roommate and discovers new experiences and finds himself. Can he sirll follow orders or is he something more than a minion?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Joan stubborn and sarcastic but caring underneath or Phoenix trying to find himself but also follow orders.
Great cast of supporting characters like the bubbly brother Caleb or the loving Sky. A great villain in Asomedeus cold and cruel and manipulative done just right.
I loved the visual detial throughout the novel like the the bay with its blue waters and clear sky with the boats and seagulls for a sense of calm for both Phoenix and the reader, beautifully written. Or with the coolies with their tastes and smells sosl vivid its as if you’re actually there as you experience new things with Phoenix, wonderfully written.
A great example of world building with fantatsical beings living alongside humanity with their own rules and laws and societies. I loved the idea of the dark angels, with evil creatures not being demons for a change was fresh and exciting. Phoenix’s journey of finding himself and his insecurities was relatable and emotive. The switch of perspectives worked well to display both sides of the story and was easy to follow with names in chapter titles. Fast paced action and high stakes in a fantasy story made for a captivating read. Overall a great read and I would give it five stars.
