Review: Torn

Christine Hughes

Rating:  4 Cogs


TORN With the sudden, mysterious death of her father, Samantha discovers her life isn’t what it seems. Not only isn’t she the normal teenage girl she thought she was, Sam must now take her father’s place in the fight between two groups of fallen angels, the Faithful and the Exiled, in a race to save humanity. In addition to dealing with a devastating betrayal—and having feelings for someone she’s forbidden to love—Sam must also fight the growing darkness within her as she struggles to make a choice between fighting alongside the Faithful or succumbing to the temptation of the Exiled. Both sides require sacrifices Sam isn’t sure she can make.


I love reading books about angels, and this book was no exception.  This is definitely a series I can get into, and I hope to read the next installment soon. 

The characters in this book are very well developed and really fun to read about.  I felt that the prophecies in the dreams made it a little more predictable, but at the same time, I can see why it was written the way it was.  Sam is a sweet girl, and she's being faced with difficult decisions that I couldn't even fathom worrying about.  At such a young age, I am very impressed by the nobility of her actions, and felt that she was a great lead for this book.

The only problem that I had with this book was the beginning.  I found it a little confusing and jumpy at first.  There was so much going on, but so little explanation that I felt as if I might have missed a prequel.  I'm really glad I stuck it out though, because it really does explain everything in the end.  Don't give up, or you'll be missing out on a great saga.

If you're into paranormal books involving angels, or really any paranormal, this is a great book to add to your shelves.
