The Angel of Darkness is dangerously close to succumbing to the evil around him. There is only one woman who possess the power to tame his dark thoughts. Will her love be enough to prevent him from losing control and lashing out at the world, or will loving her lead to his downfall?
Michelle Black struggles with her strange abilities daily and is plagued by horrific dreams. Deception surrounds her as the truth of who she is and what she is destined to do is hidden from her. Thrown into a dangerous world, she doesn’t know who she can trust. Should she believe the Angel of Darkness’ kind and loving words, or is he deceiving her so that he can use her for his own dark purposes?
The Third Throne: Angel of Darkness is the first book in the series that introduces us to Michelle Black and her dark destiny. She must fight to survive her enemies while she searches for the terrifying truth about the darkness that resides deep inside of her.
The Third Throne: Angel of Darkness has to be one of the most detailed and well-planned books I have read in a very long time. I kept expecting the book to end and it kept going (in a good way). All of the characters were complex, had depth, and meshed with one another. The background story was presented intelligently. The pace remained steady throughout, which is amazing considering the amount of material covered. If this book were a movie, it would be well over 2hrs and a wonderful experience from beginning to end.
Technically, The Third Throne: Angel of Darkness was extremely well written with a couple items to note.
First, the entire book needed a final proof by new eyes. There were numerous misspellings throughout which were not highlighted because the word was an actual word. Example: I did laugh quite a lot because many times in Hell there were “scones”, so I started wondering if they had to drink cold coffee and stale treats… when in actuality there were “sconces” throughout (I am joking… I knew it was a misspelling). See – pretty funny…
Second, the introduction of Michelle’s true name was the only confusing part of the book. At first, I thought the author had originally intended a different name and then missed some changes. I eventually figure it out, but it was much later after it started.
Most books I can read in a couple days and even though it is enjoyable, it’s a quick thrill. The Third Throne: Angel of Darkness was a book that I read for a full week and looked forward to the next time I could sit down and read more.
Personal note to author: I want to know what happens next! How long until Book 2?
