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.

I’m excited to introduce Jophiel today. We’ve met his brothers Michael and Zadekiel so now it’s time to get to know Joe a little better. I’m sure you’ll love his sense of humour. He already crashed the post (see below), and he enjoys to stir things up in the nicest possible way. So let’s see what Joe has to say about reading the book:

Joe’s Top Five excuses for not reading Jophiel

Hello, Jophiel here. Reading is such a pain, isn’t it? You have to sit for hours on end, your butt goes numb, and you’re forced to use your brain. Ain’t no one got time for that. Fear not, I’m here to help. These excuses are fool proof! You’re welcome.

#5: You’ve been working hard all day and your brain needs a break. Reading won’t do that, but a mindless game like Tetris will.

#4: It’s late at night, so you can’t read then. Reading in the dark is bad for your eyes. Better to put it off until tomorrow. Or next week.

#3: My book is the third in the series. Naturally, if you haven’t read Michael and Zadekiel, you can’t read this one. You will have zero idea what’s going on.

#2: There’s a door in your house that won’t stay open. Or you need to weigh something down. The only thing you have is this book. You have no choice but to not read.

And the #1 reason for not reading this book: The series will become a blockbuster movie. So there’s really no point when one blessed day you’ll be graced with my handsome face on the silver screen.


Of course, Joe is just fooling around, so don’t let him deter you. I loved the third book in the series, and if you come back on Friday I will be reviewing Jophiel.

But now he’s had his say (I’ll get mine Friday), meet the author behind the mischievous archangel – Patricia Josephine:
