Neophyte by Emmalee Aple


Goodreads Summary:

Addisyn White thought she had her new life, her after life, all figured out. Granted death had not brought her to the pearly white gates, she hadn’t even left Earth. But death had its perks; she got to live forever with her best friend and her assigned Link of Angels, in a beautiful beach house. Even with the changes she was going through to turn her human body into an angelic one, everything seemed pretty easy. Until a gray winged angel comes into her life, then all the secrets and lies her Link had been keeping start crumbling away, exposing a whole new world of dangers she didn’t even know about.

Now Addisyn must fill in the blanks before things escalate too far. Will she save her Link? Or will she be buried in their secrets forever?

My Review:

I’ll admit, I was very hesitant to read this book since I know Emmalee from Goodreads. I’m sure most bloggers can understand that it’s sometimes difficult to start a book if you know the author. The normal questions run through your head, the main one being ‘what if I don’t like it?’. I always give a honest review no matter the source of the book but I would feel bad if I didn’t like it and had to write a negative review.

Once I got over my mental roadblock and started reading I quickly realized that my worrying was very much unfounded. Neophyte is the first angel book that I have loved and it gives me hope that there are more angel books out there that I can enjoy.

There’s a great dynamic within Addisyn’s Link. Each character had their own role to play and I loved each of them and seeing them interact with eachother.While one of favorite characters is Hunter, I felt most connected to the main character Addi. She has been kept in the dark about a lot of things and throughout the book you watch her as she puts together the pieces of her past and the pasts of the other members of the link. Sure, I wanted to yell at her at times (and I did, haha) but I also wanted her to live happily ever after (yes, I'm a complete sucker for happy endings). I can't spoil the ending for you though so you'll just have to read the book to find out if she gets her happy ending.

If you're looking for a new angel book that is interesting, funny, tense, and sometimes emotional then this is definitely a book for you.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5
