I don’t know how I could have missed sharing on here this gem of a review on Goodreads but somehow I did!
I’m so happy to share it with everyone. I only wish that I had shared it sooner. Somehow, I don’t know how it took so long, but I have a feeling it involves Toddler Mommy brain. That, folks, is a scarier thing than it sounds like!
Thank you so much Nicole!!

Nicole McCurdy‘s review
❤ Reviewed by Nicole at Emerald Book Reviews ❤
This book was such a quirky, eccentric, madcap adventure-fantasy and to be perfectly honest those are my absolute favourite kind of books, the stories you cannot predict and the characters that don’t excactly fit a cookie-cutter mold of how a heroine or hero should think or act. The heroine in Even Halos Can be Crooked, Murie Autumn Topaz, was one of the most unique I’ve come across in a long time and I am an avid reader. Her inner monologue-although at times disjointed and scattered- is hilarious throughout, especially when her thoughts are side tracked and she goes off on a tangent of comical proportions. She is a heroine, however that a reader will either like or loathe, but I absolutely loved her. Whimsical and funny, smart and dedicated, Murie stole the show for me, followed closely by our mysterious sweetheart hero Castle (fabulous name!)
‘Castles feathers were just as soft as I remembered them. They felt like I was hugging a cloud. I sniffed in his wonderful scent, snuggled in deeper to the feathers and sleep claimed me quickly. I slept peacefully for the rest of the night.’
Even Halos Can Be Crooked is a fast-paced, take no prisoners, whirl wind adventure featuring a great cast of characters, both main and supporting. It’s fascinating and so easy to get sucked in and swept away by it all. The writing sometimes didn’t flow as well as I would have enjoyed, but it didn’t necessarily detract from the story as a whole. If you like fantasy adventure and a strong but neurotic heroine and a bit of a magical hero, then definitely take a chance on this book today.
