Review: A Terrible Fall of Angels by Laurell K. Hamilton

A Terrible Fall of Angels (Zaniel Havelock, #1)A Ter­ri­ble Fall of Angels by Lau­rell K. Hamilton
My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars

I’m impressed! Lau­rell K. Hamil­ton wrote a nov­el that’s excel­lent, engag­ing, and does­n’t even have one sex scene in it!

There are some minor sim­i­lar­i­ties to the Ani­ta Blake and Mer­ry Gen­try series here, such as going into too much detail about what peo­ple wear or how their make­up is done. There’s a lot of rela­tion­ship talk, too, even if it’s most­ly inte­ri­or “talk” from Havelock. 

The mythol­o­gy Hamil­ton is build­ing here is very inter­est­ing. In her world, angels are ever-present, and demons are much clos­er than one might think. There are humans who spe­cial­ize in com­mu­ni­cat­ing with angels, trained by a Col­lege of Angels. Have­lock was trained to be an angel speak­er but left the Col­lege. He’s a police detec­tive now.

I look for­ward to the next install­ment of Have­lock­’s story.
