Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the novel.
Once again, this is another “What the hell did just happened novel?” I have high hopes on this novel and I’m not disappointed. Well, mostly. The novel is short and things are once again happening very fast. Based on things that I’ve heard from other readers online, this novel series is a brief prequel to another more complex story. I’ll make sure to get my hands on those novel later but let’s focus on this novel for now.
I love the take on characters and the writing is just poetic. I’m not good at details so I can’t help but marvel how the author just describe things perfectly. Though the characters are angels (except for Daniel), the author’s humanization of Samael is perfect.
This is an interesting read to be honest but I jut hate the fact that Daniel ”fell” in love too fast and things like that doesn’t happen realistically. The book didn’t gave much time for a character development and didn’t give much time for a “real” love to blossom.
Still, I’m looking forward to read the whole series.
