Awaken an Angel (The Otherkin Series Book 1)
M. Pickard, author
When Mia was seven years old her nice, normal world ground to a halt - literally - and gave her a startling glimpse into a world filled with angels, demons, and magic. That world rises up to collide with hers again and again, until finally she succumbs to her fate and leaves humanity behind to become an angel. Now she must learn how to embrace her destiny, fight the revenants that threaten humanity, and save the Universe from a fate worse than death… all while coming to terms with the fact that she’s married to a demon.
Pickard tangles love and prophecy in this brisk paranormal romance series launch. Seven-year-old Mia runs into the street to save a dog, and is almost struck by a fast-moving van. Luke, a good demon, saves Mia and coaxes her into believing angels and demons exist. He returns each time Mia is in need, gradually revealing more about why he’s in Mia’s life and what larger forces of good and evil are at work. Pickard puts a fresh spin on the oft-told tale of destined mates fighting evil to save the world, creating an understandable magic system and intriguing mystery. However, much of the story is explained in narration, with little action. Readers will find Mia a quick-witted, genuine, and emotionally available heroine who’s evenly matched by Luke’s thoughtful intensity and devotion as their relationship grows. This story will appeal to many readers of paranormal romance. (BookLife)
