Conspiracy of Angels - Michelle Belanger

Zack Westland awakens on the shore of Lake Erie, his memory gone. Assaulted by powerful psychic fragments, he learns that he belongs to a tribe of angels—one of several living on Earth since the Blood Wars. Pursued by cacodaimons intent on killing him—again—he seeks to end war between the tribes.


My thoughts
This was one of those book that I just did not realize how much I had read before  I looked at the page numbers. Suddenly I was on page 100, so obviously I had to read on. But I did stop at page 300,  I mean I had to get something done that evening. So I finished it in the morning instead ;) This book shows lot of promise, I hope it will get better and better.

I do like the amnesia premise. Zach wakes up and knows nothing, so we know nothing. Little by little we learn of different tribes of angels, the wars they have fought, and the conspiracy that Zach tried to get to the bottom of. He is in danger, but he does not know why. There is mystery and suspense thrown into this UF.

Zach, well he does not know much, duh. But he seems nerdy with his pop culture references and love of languages (some things he remembers, we will see why later). But is he good or not? He feels he is, but then he knows nothing. But I liked him. He is a good guy.

Helping him later on he has someone calling himself his brother, I was so unsure about Remy all the way through. And Lilli, who was a breath of fresh air. She never stopped, aye I liked her.

I think the reason why I read it so fast but did not know it, is, oh maybe page 1 was heavy? But the rest just flowed? Anyhow, like I said, it shows promise and was a good start to a new series.

Conclusion:
I look forward to reading more of this  series, everything is good for now, but everything is so not ok in the world. Intriguing.  I need to know how it all plays out.

  12. Definitely checking this one out. I've been reading something for two weeks now - I can't get past 10 pages, and I fall asleep. I'm not sure if it's me or the book, but I sure would like to read something FASTER! Happy weekend, Linda.
