Publication date: May 21, 2013

Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.



About the Book:



Seventeen-year-old Grace Ann Miller is no ordinary runaway...

After having been missing for weeks, Grace is found on the estate of international rock star Gavin Vault, half-dressed and yelling for help. Over the course of twenty-four hours Grace holds an entire police force captive with incredulous tales of angels, demons, and war; intent on saving Gavin from lockup and her family from worry over her safety.

Authorities believe that Grace is ill, suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, the victim of assault and a severely fractured mind. Undeterred, Grace reveals the secret existence of dark angels on earth, an ancient prophecy and a wretched curse steeped in Biblical myth. Grace’s claims set into motion an ages-old war, resulting in blood, death and the loss of everything that matters. But are these the delusions of an immensely sick girl, or could Grace’s story actually be true?

Praefatio is Grace’s account of weeks on the run, falling in love and losing everything but her faith. When it’s sister against brother, light versus darkness, corrupt police officers, eager doctors and accusing journalists, against one girl with nothing but her word as proof: who do you believe?

Review:



★★★

I don't read a lot of books about angels, namely because honestly they don't come up on my radar too much. But when I read the synopsis and saw the pretty cover of Praefatio, I had to read it. Overall, it is a solid book that blends together fantasy and reality.

The whole book has this "what on earth is happening" vibe, but I mean that in a good way. You never quite know who is telling the truth, or who is the good guy and who is the bad guy. It leads for a lot of twists and turns that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. You can't help but to get emotionally invested in all of the characters' happenings.

Grace is one of the more interesting characters that I've come across for exactly that reason. The book starts with her upset in a police station, trying to defend someone that the police have pegged as her kidnapper, more or less. From then on, it's unclear and left to the reader to piece together if Grace's story of angels is a true one, or if the police are right and she has something akin to Stockholm Syndrome.

This book is a fairly quick one to get to, and worth it to get lost in this world of young adult, paranormal romance. I think fans of angels and paranormal romance will really enjoy this, because I think each person will take this book differently and get different things from it. (Which is pretty cool in my opinion). This is the author's first novel, and I think that it's a great first piece.

I received a copy in exchange for my honest review.
