Review

Melanie Tomlin, or Queen M—as I call her—created a very entertaining and intriguing story that will make you want to live in her books. For all I know, she could be the next Anne Rice, and this book will be the next big thing in theaters.

Angels and Vampires have a special place in my heart. This book has been recommended to me, and upon seeing the cover, I was intrigued, confused even. Why is it entitled Angel’s Kiss when the cover shows a bloody lip? I mean, it shows on the cover that it was a vampire so why the hell is it entitled an Angel’s Kiss? Yes, I judge its cover without reading it just yet.

The book started with a very human scene—a girl who wanted to die—a girl named Helena was yearning for death to come, but instead, she became the death of the vampire who drink on her. And yes, in just the first-three short chapter, the whole foundation of the story has been established well.

When I say established, it had already given you questions that you yearned to have an answer. Apparently, when the Angel named Danny—as he first told Helena—explained to her that only an Angel blood can kill a vampire, and it would also be a death sentence for her, more questions started emerging. Helena, being an unknown entity, Danny decided to keep her to know what she really was.

Danny, keeping Helena was, well, the start of a relationship every girl fantasizes about. Danny—well, he is obviously perfect because he is an angel, but still, getting to know him more seems like you wanted to sin with him. Yes, like you wanted to forget all rationalities left in your mind and go inside the book and replace Helena in his life. Kidding aside, I really wanted Danny out of the book. HAHA.

Seriously, Danny and Helena’s relationship was established by pure curiosity and interest in each other; Helena wanted to know who Danny is, his story and as for Danny, he doesn’t care about Helena’s past or how Helena sees things. Danny accepts Helena for who really she is.

This book was balanced and laid-out carefully. Every detail, in my opinion, has been planned carefully. There is some bible teaching that was tweaked by the author, and honestly speaking (no offense meant), the author had given a better version of some parts of the bible. The author also is well knowledgeable about the topics (especially the Angels and the hierarchy she used. Furthermore, the book is not just about romance stuff, but it has some rich Angel history that you’ll love exploring, also there is some action, comedy, and drama that you’ll definitely love.

You might be curious about how the story ends? The story ends with—well, you better read the book to know how it ends. Salute to Queen M (yeup, That’s what I call her.) for creating this perfect book.

OverAll Rating

5

Angel’s Kiss, the first book in the Angel Series by Melanie Tomlin received a rating of five heavenly book goodness! That means it’s not just a good book, it’s a perfect book- the kind of perfection that only the Big Guy (as Helena called Him) can create or orchestrate. Wait, I think that’s blasphemous. I shouldn’t have said that. Oh, yeah. But I think this is the part where my favorite quote of Danizriel fits in.

“Mortals’ beliefs are so funny,” he laughed, “He gave you the Ten Commandments – which you couldn’t follow, by the way – and ten only, yet you create even more rules to make your lives difficult. No sex before marriage, sex only to reproduce, no meat on Fridays and the list goes on.”
– Danizriel, Angel’s Kiss by Melanie Tomlin

About the Author

Melanie TomlinMelanie Tomlin was born in Beeston, England. At the age of three, her family moved to suburban Melbourne, Australia, where she has lived ever since. When she was twelve her parents bought her a typewriter, and she wrote her first novel that very same year. She still has the typewriter, which is somewhat worse for wear, but that first manuscript is now nothing but a distant memory.

Her first published book, Angel’s Kiss, was released in 2015. The second and third installments in the ‘Angel Series’ — Angel’s Curse and Angel’s Messiah — were released in February 2016 and June 2016 respectively.

For a change of pace, and something a little different, Melanie has recently finished work on a book of poetry called Twisted Poems of a Warped Mind and a children’s picture book called Lucy Vampoosy: The Little Vampire Dog.

Melanie is currently working on the fifth book in the ‘Angel Series’.
