Title: The Gates of Golorath (Chaos of Souls #1)

Author: R.M. Garino



Through trial and terror are our heroes forged. Fire fuels their souls; their blood, the quench that hardens the blades. 
The Pride. The 3rd and 12th squads:

Join this misfit squad of angels as they fight for rank and renown in the martial school; the Areth’kon. 
They go through harrowing trials and face deadly beasts to prove their worth. But one Master at the Gates wants their blood. Will they all be able to survive his wrath? 
If this rowdy bunch can get their act together, they might actually have a shot at ranking up. Each dreams of becoming a Yearling, the first step on the path to being a Blademaster. But trouble follows them like it’s their lost pet and boy is it hungry. 
Angus and Arielle:
Angelic relationships can be complicated; especially when others are messing with the cosmos. 
Angus and Arielle were prophesized by the meddling seers long ago. As children they shared a divine bond; one never before seen by the likes of their people. 
For fear of what their union meant, they were torn away from each other. Now, decades later, they reunite in a most embarrassing way. 
Will their reunion be a thing of wonder, or were their elders right to be fearful?

My Review

5/5 Stars

So I always love a good angel story. This one did not disappoint.

The different factions of angels and the way that they interacted was interesting. However, I think my favorite storyline was that of Arielle. I could really her feel her grow throughout the book, and even though there is some romance in her story, it wasn’t immediate. We got to really meet her and root for her before she met the man she spotted at the beginning of the book.

Very complex with lots of worldbuilding, we see both the Realm of Humans, the Realms with Heaven and Hell, and the Realm in between. There are a lot of characters as well but getting a feel for each of who they were and what they wanted was a beautiful part of the story even when it got confusing at times.

While the plot moves slowly at first to introduce us to the characters, it picks up quickly leading for a very engaging read. Even though this is a long book, the writing was so well done that the time flew by.

Recommended for all epic fantasy fans!

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.
