3.0 out of 5 stars and an oddly adorable Devil’s Spawn minion named Desmin, March 6, 2017
This review is from: Even Halos Can Be Crooked (Kindle Edition)
The premise of “Halos” fits right in with a traditional paranormal plotline. After a near-death accident (attempted murder), Autumn is returned to Earth from Limbo to help balance the scales in her soul, by finding and protecting the soul who was the actual target of the murder attempt. In the process she stumbles into a battle with sirens, demons, and devils for all the souls on Earth. With the help of some hot as heck angels, and an oddly adorable Devil’s Spawn minion named Desmin, she navigates her new reality while trying to follow the rules and yet still have a little fun.

Typically books of this nature, are serious and intense. This book tried to infuse a tremendous amount of humor, and tongue-in-cheek phrasing. The intent appears to be to take a deep and intense topic, and have a little fun with it. Unfortunately, I found it to be a little juvenile in the approach. Autumn is in her late 20’s to early 30’s, but when you read her words, she sounds more like a high school girl with all the naivety and hyper-exuberance a teenage girl might have. It made her character’s ability to succeed in this endeavor much less believable. Add in our adorable Desminn with his wit and teenage boy sounding humor, and it was just difficult to take them seriously. The saving grace here was the character of her guardian angel Castle. He tended to be the more serious of the group, allowing you to believe they COULD actually succeed.

Even though the blurb for this book said it was the first in a series, I wasn’t expecting the cliffhanger to be as big as it was. So much was left unresolved and unanswered. I would have expected some resolution to pieces of the story, while setting up for the next book in the series. You weren’t just left hanging, it was as if you were pushed off that proverbial cliff.

If you like your paranormal mysteries on the lighthearted side, then “Halos” is a good fit for you. If you prefer a more serious approach, then probably not.
