Prayer for the Blood Angel
In the distant future, a new form of an old, deadly religion ravages mankind. Its followers, the Men of Adam, have recruited an ancient race to purify the universe of the plague of the unclean, the nonbelievers, once and for all. The future of freethinkers everywhere rests on the shoulders of the young queen, Arial, who must find the strength to realize her potential. If she fails, the annihilation of the Worlds is a certainty. She must rise above a swirling maelstrom of betrayal, sacrifice, and intrigue to save her people. Before the war draws to its bloody end, armies will be destroyed, mages will test the very limits of the physical realm, daemons will walk among the living, Elvin clans will cleave through shadow, and the blood angels will rain down terror. Is the courage of one young woman enough to save the Worlds?

Jul 8, 2014Ever since I first learned that one could create an imaginary world in their head and put it on paper to share with the real world, I have dreamed of being able to write a story like this. A story of mystery, violence, love, conflict and more all encased in an epic sci-fi fantasy. The problem though, was that I could never connect all the dots, the stars never aligned - the genres were like magnets that wouldn't touch. But Roberts has managed to do what I thought was impossible. This is my perfect fantasy story in every way, touching on every dream you could wish to experience in one book and doing it effortlessly. Lulu summarises the story as well as one would require (so I will not repeat it here), and "Prayer for the Blood Angel" reads with the novelty of "Brave New World", the reliability of "The Lord of the Rings" and the pure otherworldly nostalgia of "The Dark Tower" - but amazingly, it completely avoids being derivative. The quality of... More > the writing is superb - the easy-to-read and understated yet elegant prose of a young author publishing her first work - and the story maintains its structure and poise under a complex and engrossing plot. The characters are fleshed out with enough detail to love or hate them yet with enough left to the readers for them to imagine. In a world (the real world - our world) where all fantasy stories seem to either try too hard to avoid being Tolkienesque or unashamedly don't (the end result being the same), I am completely in awe to have found something else. Even if you don't like epic sci-fi, space opera hack-and-slash fantasy, you should join in the chorus that sings to those that do: 'read it, read it, read it...' We need original and exciting books like "Prayer for the Blood Angel" to keep the tradition of fantasy in literature alive; a tradition that is straining under lackluster repetition and a saturated market. Let us all hope that this author garners the recognition she deserves, for if not, the world (again, our world) would have lost out.< Less
