The Color of Angels’ Souls by Sophie Audouin-Mamikonian

I got this book in exchange for an honest review.

Jeremy is only twenty-three when is murdered by someone with a katana even though he lives in the twenty-first century. Jeremy is tossed into a world of angels some of which want to help the humans and some who want nothing more than to feed off their pain and suffering. Jeremy isn’t sure what he should do with the eternity that he ahead of him until he finds Allison who is the only person who saw him get murdered. Jeremy soon finds out that she is in danger and he decides he will do whatever he can to protect her.

I thought the angel concept was really unique and I liked all the world development the author did for it. She was good at explaining it while not making it seem like it was an information dump. This book also wasn’t religious so people of any religion or people who aren’t religious would also like it.

I also enjoyed when Jeremy and Allison met people from history. I loved those characters especially Albert Einstein and those were probably some of my favorite parts of the novel.

I didn’t find Jeremy’ and Allison’s relationship to be all that realistic, and I thought at times that their romance kind of took over the plot, which I didn’t like. I was much more interested in knowing about the angels and how they lived then his relationship with her.

Overall I would give this book three out of five.
