Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The writing is powerful and evocative, the characters well-developed, and the plotting complex. Among the plethora of paranormal stories which have swamped the market recently, this one will stand out for its freshness of approach and the quality of its writing. A sequel, please!"  —Bookbag

"Rich in paranoia, fear, and runs along at a frantic pace . . . creepy and utterly compelling! It may well be the best YA paranormal fantasy book I read this year."  —Teen Librarian

"You'd be forgiven for thinking this might be another of those urban fantasies like Twilight that feature romantic interludes between vampires and werewolves—but don't be deceived. This is a fantastic piece of writing. . . . Exceptionally good."  —Books Monthly

"A taut plot and sympathetic characters will draw in most teens."  —School Library Journal 

VOYA - Debbie Kirchhoff
Angel's Fury is set in modern-day England, where heroine Cassie thinks her problem is ordinary, although debilitating, insomnia caused by fear of her recurring nightmares. After a breakdown during a difficult school field trip to Germany, her parents surrender and take Cassie to a mysterious doctor who claims complete control over Cassie's care is her only hope. Cassie is brought to an old country manor where she meets other children and teens who she realizes are afflicted as she is, not with nightmares, but with memories of a past life which surface during sleep. Patterns, coincidences, and relationships between these past lives emerge. It becomes clear to Cassie and her new friend Seth that all of the doctor's patients are connected in their past lives to a particularly evil period in history. She and Seth discover also, that unbelievably, the doctor is somehow involved in the horrors of the past. There are timeless themes explored in this book, the struggle of good versus evil, with a spectacularly evil villain. It is a good choice for teens who enjoy mythology and storytelling in the tradition of Beowulf. It will also be enjoyed by those who enjoy historical fiction, especially the World War II era. Reviewer: Debbie Kirchhoff
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—English teenager Cassie is plagued by terrifying nightmares. When she goes on a school trip to Germany, she recognizes the site of an uncovered mass burial of a Holocaust victim from her dreams and reports it to the German authorities. The discovery makes international news. For the first time, Cassie realizes that in her dreams she is living through real people from the past. Her concerned parents decide to contact Dr. Leaza Ashworth, the specialist in past lives they took her to as a toddler. At that time, she became too controlling, and they ran away from her. At Dr. Ashworth's treatment center, Cassie meets others suffering from recurring nightmares. She immediately connects with Seth, an older boy whom she has seen in her dreams, and she soon realizes that her past lives have given her a knowledge of weapons and that instead of curing her the doctor wants to turn her into a killer who will help her destroy humanity. She vows to escape with the other children before it is too late. A taut plot and sympathetic characters will draw in most teens. However, discerning readers will wonder why Cassie's caring parents allow the same doctor they once feared to have legal guardianship of their daughter and why the staff at the treatment center seems to be oblivious to Doctor Ashworth's evil intentions. Biblical references, brief allusions to sexuality, and violent passages are included. Since Cassie is one of the 200 children of a fallen angel and she is determined at the end of the book to locate the others, this story leaves room for sequels.—Kathy Kirchoefer, Prince Georges County Memorial Library System, New Carrollton, MD
