Overall, I thought this was a good introduction to a new series. It was fast paced and fun. What I enjoyed the most about this story was the characters. Angel was a normal teenager who worried about her grades and gossiped with her best friend about the cutest guy in school. She also had amazing parents who really cared about her. This story was fast-paced, but I wish it hadn’t been quite so fast. The action was non-stop and the reader barely had any time to digest the new information that was being revealed. The book is just under 200 pages, and that does not allow for a lot of time to explain the details of an entirely new mythical species. Oleah Chronicles: Truth told a story that was like nothing I have ever read before. It was a fun read and I am interested in seeing what comes next. This is an impressive debut novel and I look forward to seeing this series grow. If you are looking for a unique fantasy / paranormal read that will suck you into the action quickly, then check this one out.

Original Review posted at http://sandrathebookworm.blogspot.com/2015/10/oleah-chronicles-truth.html The author was kind enough to send me a copy of her book in exchange for an honest review. This book was very interesting and different I really enjoyed the concept and all the different creatures that Michelle brought together in this book. Angel is a normal 16 year old until she begins to have nightmares and visions. When the new boy Zander starts to take an interest in her she can feel this strange pull towards him, Zander reveals that she and her family come from another Galaxy from a race called Oleah (who are like centaurs except with the body of a lion). I don't want to give too much away so I will leave it at that. Like I said at the beginning this book is very interesting I really enjoyed the different concept, I have never read anything like it before; with that said I did have some minor problems with it. First I felt that Angel gave her trust to Zander a little too quickly I would have made him work for it, I mean he had done horrible things to her family and all she had to hear to trust him was I'm not like that anymore, second Julie, Angels best friend was very irritating at points I mean I get it you want your friend to be with Zander, but at some points I felt like she was the one interested in hooking up with him. There were also some things that kept me turning the pages like the fact that there are vampires, angels, Satans sister and Demons that just intrigued me so much! Also towards the end the book starts getting a lot more action and we start to see more of the Oleahs; which I’m really looking forward to. I am going to continue with the series, I really want to know more about Zander and Angel; I’m also very intrigued to see where the story goes. -SandraTheBookWorm

Book Review: Oleah Chronicles: TRUTH By Michelle Johnson ***I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. This book was a surprising relief. First, I am impressed that Michelle Johnson kept the “Young” in Young Adult. It is a book that I have no problem recommending to young readers and not just adult fans of YA. Second, I am impressed that the lead character had parents who were alive and not completely useless. Finally, I like the mixture of new mythologies with existing mythologies. It does take a minute to get into to book, but once the revelations start the page turning is unstoppable. Angel is a very special child from the world of Oleah, inhabited by half human/lion beings. She is secreted away from her home by her parents in order to protect her from a dangerous fallen Angel named Sindrell. As she comes of age disguised to fit in on Earth, she has no idea of her true origins. When Zander, a beautiful new transfer student, enters her world a cold chill alerts her to his presence. Although these chills should ring alarm bells, once they lock eyes, the connection is irresistible. The closer they get to each other the more perilous it becomes and Angel has to decide how much she can really trust Zander once he reveals the entire TRUTH. I highly recommend this book for young readers especially young readers of color looking for stories with representation that is front and center.
