Book Review: Angels Rising

Title: Angels Rising

Author: Harriet Carlton

Narrator: Michael Newberry



When 17-year-old Imorean Frayneson receives a scholarship to Gracepointe University in Norway, he’s a bit surprised: He didn’t even remember applying. 

When he arrives, he notices odd things: gates that lock at night, staff members who refuse to give straight answers, and most disturbing of all, a spectral creature that seems to be haunting him. 

Before long, Imorean finds himself caught up in a sinister plan – one created 17 years ago – that threatens to destroy the life he knew and expose the secret truth of who he really is. 

My Review

5/5 Stars

Very, very amazing paranormal YA.

I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with such a unique storyline. I loved the fact that this story had so many different interesting angles that all somehow still came together at the end. The book tackled the classic good versus evil struggle. The ending was intriguing though I wish there had been a bit more of a resolution. Characterization, descriptions, and worldbuilding is beautifully done.

The narration was spot on for the character and greatly added to the suspense of the story.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
