About the Author

I was born in Sunderland, a city in the north-east of England. I don’t recall too much about my first 8 years of life other than I loved being outdoors especially in the woods near our house. I came home every night covered in scratches. My first real book memory is being given C.S. Lewis’s The Magician’s Nephew by my English teacher, Mrs Baldwin. I loved that, and all the other Narnia books. So how did I become an author? As a parent I was used to making up short and funny stories for my daughter, Rachel. When she was about ten, however, she wanted a story about a really, really nasty witch. This time I put pen to paper and what started off as a tiny scrap of an idea got bigger and bigger and BIGGER. It became The Doomspell. After I finished it, I continued my love affair with fantasy by creating The Silver Sequence which I still think is probably my best and definitely my most original work. Following that, I tried to scare everyone half to death with a couple of ghost novels – Breathe and The Hunting Ground.   I could tell you more about myself, but the truth is that perhaps the biggest gift we can give anyone is our imagination and everything important I have to offer you about that is in the novels.

I enjoyed this book which is basically a coming of age story about a teen girl who is struggling to find her identity. I think teen girls, especially, would enjoy this well-written book.

I don't know what I was expecting when I picked up this book, but I definitely didn't except it to be as, well, bad. The writing wasn't all that bad and I finished the book out of curiosity, and in hopes that it would improve -- it just didn't. Angel played far too much on clichés -- those associated with high school, depressed kids, and angels. There was no real resolution, the story was mostly about running away (and later toward) angels and other people. I found the storyline with Freya's brother to be the more interesting one, but even the events of his life got tedious. In the end, McNish ties everything up in a neat package with a bow on top -- and I don't approve. I think that with a better ending, perhaps this would have been a better book.

Ever wonder if angels really did exist? Well, in this book they do, but try living with that fact when everyone around you does not know. This story focuses on two girls. One who has actually seen an angel and another who believes but has never seen one. I really enjoyed the story - the regular aspects as well as the fantasy elements.
