Mariangela is trying to make amends by protecting the child she is carrying. After blindly following Lucifer in the rebellion, her misguided allegiance came with a price: banishment from heaven.

The path becomes a battleground, one which may already be lost.


Review – Jophiel (Path of Angels: Book 3)

Jophiel is the kind of person we can all identify with, whether he brings to mind a sibling or a friend. He’s the joker of the group, the one who needles at you but knows when to quit. In path of angels, Joe enjoys to get a rise out of his brothers – it’s almost a sport. But his loyalty, the fact that beneath the humour lies a sharp focus, that’s Joe’s real strength.

We’ve seen Michael and Zade struggle with their chosen path and, perhaps unexpectedly, Joe rises to the challenge and meets his fate head on. I particularly enjoyed his growing friendship with Lake because, despite the fact Joe rarely takes things seriously, he isn’t afraid to admit when he’s wrong. That’s true character.

When Joe’s visions threaten to spiral out of control, it is Lake who teaches him how to focus his power. They both learn something from the friendship.

Joe is also a charmer, as evidenced when he first meets Mariangela. The author did an excellent job of exploring their connection, and more than that, she brought these characters to life. Mariangela is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Her inner conflict is dealt with beautifully, as is the desperation with which she clings to her faith.

I thoroughly enjoyed the third book in the series. It has all the mystery and suspense of the first two, and there’s a real sense of building to a conclusion.

PatriciaLynneAuthorPicPatricia Josephine never set out to become a writer. In fact, she never considered it an option during high school and college. She was all about art. On a whim, she wrote down a story bouncing in her head. That was the start of it and she hasn’t regretted a moment. She writes young adult under the name Patricia Lynne.

Patricia lives with her husband in Michigan, hopes one day to have what will resemble a small petting zoo, has a fondness for dying her hair the colors of the rainbow, and an obsession with Doctor Who.
