    Loved This Book!

    I received this book from the Author after requesting it to review. I so glad that I did. This book had me sucked in from the very first page. The Book(s) chronicle the everlasting struggle between good and evil, hope and despair.

    Their is no easy explanation of the plot and characters because it is so complex and the list of characters so many. Basically the Book is split between focusing on two warring houses of Angels, The Bulguardians and The Grigorians. Both Houses are in a struggle to become strongest and rule over the human realm below. The War has raged on for Centuries with no clear winner in sight. The other storyline takes place in the mortal realm with the focus on a Girl named Grace and her struggles with Death, Love, Happiness and Sanity.

    Since I read both books in one shot I didn't have time to really ponder events between the First and Second Book. The Book spends a good bit of time bouncing between centuries and swapping narrators but it is in no way confusing, a credit to the very brilliant writing of the Author. The First Book The Angels Are Here is a Novella and only around 50 pages. Grace is a child in this book so we see her world through those eyes. For much of the first book Grace is watched over by an Angel named Hope. Grace believes Hope to be an imaginary playmate and after suffering a great tragedy dismisses Hope from her life burying the memories of her. Once we reach the second book Progeny of Innocence she is a teenager struggling with events of her childhood. Once you mix in hormones, boys and a peculiar best friend you have the basis of book 2.

    I really loved this book. The writing between both books was spot on. You could tell the Author really spent time researching not only the Historical events portrayed but also the centuries those events happened in. I enjoyed how the book introduced you to the characters. That can really make me dislike a book. Here we have back story and continuing growth of the characters as well. I also enjoyed the Villains (Grigorians) these aren't your sparkly, sweep you off your feet "vampires". Sure they are gorgeous but they are deadly as well. They add quite a bit of death and destruction to the book but that is what makes their characters so great! Overall I highly recommend you buy this book which is why I am rating it 5 stars!

    Patti's Paradox series is a must read!!

    Patti Roberts weaves a wonderful tale of magick and love in her Paradox series. I was pulled in by an 11 year old Grace in the first book, The Angels are Here, who was shattered by the loss her father. Now she is a teen who must find a place in the human world to better understand the spirit world and how to deal with her visions of a young woman who comes from her own past life. Through Patti, you get to travel into the supernatural as fallen angels hunt for Grace, and she begins her journey in the bloom of her life as a young woman getting to know a boy named Damon, all rolled up with learning her way with dealing with spirit.

    Patti keeps you on the edge of her seat with a very real as you see these fallen angels through her writing and feel Grace's emotions as they come to life through her words. I didn't want to put this book down as I was pulled into Grace's world, and I gave this book 5 stars as a must read!!
