Archon product reviews

For years, Angela Mathers has been plagued by visions of a supernatural being, and angel with beguiling eyes and magnificent wings who haunts her thoughts and seduces her dreams. Newly freed from a mental institution where she has been locked away for two years, Angela hopes that being accepted at the Vatican's exclusive university, the Westwood Academy, will bring her peace and a semblance of normality.

But Angela isn't normal. With her stain of dark red hair and alabaster skin, she is a blood head, a freak, a monster, and the possible fulfillment of a terrifying prophecy. Blessed with strange, mystical powers, blood heads hold a special place in Luz, the remote island that is home to the academy. Among them, one special blood head is more powerful than all: the Archon, the human reincarnation of the dead angel Raziel. And when the Archon arises as foretold, it will control the supernatural universe.

Right, I think that the book was okay - I found it rather boring at first, but after taking a break from this book and reading two others, I found a lot more enjoyment when I came back to it. The cover is good, I like the red door on it, it made me think that it was the entrance to hell, and the angel sitting above the door looked great as well!

The way the book ended and the sentence "The Books Of Raziel" makes me wonder if this book is the first of an upcoming series, and now I hope that it is! I would not recommend this book for children until they have at least entered their pre-teens, because the book contained a fair dose of violence and blood, in fact there were a couple of parts where I got a bit grossed out!

The price of the book is great, not too cheap as to tell you that it is not a good book, but not so expensive that it will be hard for people to find the money to buy it.The theme was rather dark - according to the book the sky above the city of Luz was always cloudy and stormy, and when the weather in reality matches the weather in the book, I always feel rather glum and cold, so just the thought of this fantasy world makes me feel a little down. I will most certainly take my time before reading this book again, but overall, I say that this is not a bad novel. Enjoy.
