This is a moving, thought-provoking story that will linger a long time. Slow to start with, but worth persevering.

Reviewed by Nicolle Williams for Readers Favorite "Angel" by Sebastian Michael explores the life of Damion, the most beautiful boy in the world. His beauty is so great that everyone he meets seems to fall in love with him despite their gender or sexuality and people cannot believe he is human. They feared that he must be an angel. Growing up, Damion experienced many traumatic events, the most dominant being the deaths of friends and family, and eventually this seemed to take its toll on Damion. One night changed Damion's life forever. There was a fire in which people died, but Damion survived, just barely. He was scarred for life. He was no longer the most beautiful man in the world, but a horrific sight which made people gag. During this time we get an insight into the real Damion and his feelings before and after the fire, leading to a revelation about the fire. Although the beginning is slow, the second half of the book is so poignant that it nearly brought me to tears. Sebastian Michael has a superb writing talent and can describe raw emotion in such a way that it really affects the reader. The turn of events after the fire is the making of this book and answers many questions about Damion which weren't so clear in the beginning. This novel is not polished or pristine. It is not the perfect story and it doesn't leave the reader totally satisfied with a happy ending. Yet it is written in such a way that it reflects real life and the harsh reality of being scarred both physically and mentally. A wonderful and thoughtful book which will leave you thinking about Damion for days after you have finished reading. It will definitely enhance your appreciation of 'normal' life.

Angel is a story about Damion - the most beautiful boy in the world. He could get anything he wanted. He could get anyone he wanted. On paper, his life seemed ideal. Who wouldn’t have people showing them adoration all of the time. But, to Damion, this wasn’t always a blessing, and when it comes to what he wants, the end result may surprise you. “But beauty is the cruelest gift the gods bestow. With it, you are everything to everyone, even if you are nothing to yourself” Alright now I have a few things to say, I will state the cons first since the last part of a review is usually what people remember. The story was really good, but the writing style had it running a bit dry at time. The beginning was very slow; it took me awhile to get through. I can’t pin point the exact reason. It could have been the length of the chapters, or just the writing. It felt like the ending was written FIRST. This is not a writing style I am opposed to - if it doesn’t make the beginning run slow because the main events have already been written. I see why the first part was as long as it was; the tone was just very… sophisticated… I guess I could say. Nothing wrong with that, but for me it’s hard to read at times. Now for the reasons you must read this. As I stated before, the story is great. It points out that beauty is not always a blessing, which I feel the world needs to recognize more. The last half of the book moved very quickly. There were many exciting events that made reading it seem like a breeze. THE ENDING. The ending. The ending. Reading the rest of the book was so worth it just to see how it ended up. It really doesn’t disappoint. 3/5 Stars for me only for the slow beginning.
