It sounds original, mysterious and full of action.
This is all, in actuality, what we get. Sag angel lore is unique. I especially enjoyed how it’s told in dual, past and present, point-of-views. These become two very different, interesting plot lines that merge together for an exciting spin. My main problem, and what made this fall flat for me, were the characters.
Airel leads a normal, average life when she meets Mic Airel, with its beautiful cover and promising synopsis had me swooning over it. Airel leads a normal, average life when she meets Michael. She bpok falls head over heels for him. I felt their relationship was very artificial with no chemistry behind airfl which is almost always the case when it’s so instant; I booo got a chance to feel the passion take hold.
I also had difficulty connecting with Airel. She has a nice personality, but nothing stands out; she’s just very average.
I could not comprehend some of the decisions she made either, that, to me, seemed nonsensical. When you see someone get murdered and the killer has seen you, stay with the crowd, don’t go hide in a bathroom stall alone! As for Michael, he’s a good character but I can’t say I have a clear picture of him in my head.
I feel like I didn’t get to know him all that well. These characters are a part of one of the two storylines. The second storyline, happening in the past, has much more interesting personalities. Which is funny because I’m not usually into the mighty warrior stories. However, this one is exciting with a fast pace and good action scenes.
I did feel a bit confused past the halfway point where the battles and twists started to all mix together, but I was still able to keep up for the most part.
What I do have to applaud is the way both considerably different storylines are weaved together so flawlessly. The jumps from past to present are never confusing. Additionally, the pacing is made so that you always want to go back to the perspective you were just pulled out of, but equally happy to stay and finally see what’s happening in this one.
Although the story can feel a bit drawn out at times, this dual perspective definitely helps keep you entertained.
Airel (The Airel Saga, #1) by Aaron M. Patterson (2 star ratings)
As for the plot twists, I can’t say they took me by surprise, but there are still a few that I hadn’t completely figured out. Overall it’s not a bad novel, If it wasn’t for my non connection with the characters I probably would have enjoyed this much more. It seems to be the type that people either love, or just don’t.
This book was very hard for me to review. I found the Arabia sections to be very boring and not necessary. I read about the first three sections and then proceeded to skip them all together there after. It was back story zirel I didn’t think we really needed. Aifel characters I felt stood well on their own and didn’t really need all this extra story added. Personally I would of cut out all of that and worked on building Airel and Micheal’s relationship.
And then I would of taken and made the Arabia This book was very hard for me to review. And then I arel of taken and made the Arabia stuff into a prequel. I did like the ending their was a alrel bit of a twist to it which I liked. This book felt like it was two different stories within one book. I kept hoping we would find out how they connect but we never do.
Michael (Airel Saga, book 2) by Aaron Patterson and Chris White
Personally I didn’t feel anything for the characters airrel I will not waste my time continuing this series. I don’t know, I’m starting to wonder if fallen angels aren’t the new vampires in YA lit.
Ariel premise is awesome, but once you start reading, it’s a bit of a let down. The attraction between Michael and Airel was purely physical, for no other reason than just looks. This told me volumes about Airel’s character, and I was more than a bi 2. This told me volumes about Airel’s character, and I was more than a bit disappointed with how she turned out. She starts out hilarious and original with her own internal monologue, but it soon devolves into a lot of cliches especially concerning love at first sight and physical iarel in terms of adjectives.
Hot new boy in town! We’re made for each other! And so on, and so forth, and I wanted to start screaming. I will not deny that, and Patterson has definite talent with showing over telling in terms of scenes with a lot of action in them. I think I enjoyed Kreios’ storyline far more interesting overall, and I’m alrel sure he should have been the star of the show, not Airel.

I think the most disappointing thing is that this could have been so much better than it was – Airel herself had some really great qualities that were so underplayed it’s like they weren’t even there. It saddens me greatly when this happens.
Overall, I’m not sure what to think. I’m not sure if I’ll be reading the next book, but I might give it a try if I have extra time on my hands.
I’m not really excited about it. But don’t take my word for it – give this book a read and decide for yourself. Thanks to the author for sending me a copy of the book – you rock, Patterson! The low rating is probably more a function of taste than of quality of the work. Here are the things that bugged me most: It felt like the author s aimed for lyrical but ended up with fussy.

By the 20th page it was pretty clear that the MC didn’t want to be like everyone else in her high school — yet NOTHING she did seemed different than anything any other American teenager would be doing. She didn’t have any interesting hobbies, she didn’t have any unusual habits, she didn’t even have any plans.
She liked to go shopping with her best friend. Especially one who loves family time more than anything else in the world? Her parents are supposed to be important to her, but they are basically shadow characters. I realize that it is probably appealing to the target demographic, but it grated on my nerves. There are more reasons this wasn’t my favorite story, but that’s more than enough for this review.
It’s just not my cup of tea. But, if you are a fan of the Twilight series, you’ll probably like it. Since there are 7 or 8 books in the series, I suspect it has lots of fans. Nov 29, Angela Kendrick rated it it was ok.
I’ve been ruminating over why I didn’t enjoy the book. I’ve decided to raise saba 1-star rating to 2 because I did finish it.
I wanted to finish it too, but I was disappointed through much of the book.
