My Review

Even Angels Fall by F.L. Darbyshire is such an amazing, intense reading. I loved this story right from the start and could actually relate with Abby’s Mum. But how the author chose to write this story is spectacular and yes I said spectacular and why? Because this can be anyone, especially a teenager who has gone through such a tragic experience and trying to find their way in life.

This story is not for the faint at heart!! This story about Abby after suffering the loss of her twin brother and trying to deal with her family who are suffering as well. She really does try to do right and she means so well, but she was in a bad way and of course she becomes friends with people who are not of the best character and brings her to a different world than she has lived. We all feel for these characters, I know I fell in love with all of them. The character building in this book is so real. Yes my emotions were up and down. I don’t want to give any spoilers, but this about how Abby handles life in her young 18 year old way and getting into the world of drugs, friendships and love. This is a mother’s nightmare. I could not put this book down, it took me a few days to read as I had to work, but this book is extremely intense.  There is major drug use, some violence because of the drug use, there is sex but not mentioned, more just that we knew that they did, lots of heartbreak.  This book brought out a lot of emotions in me, I wasn’t sure if I should read it or not but I did. If you’re in the mood for this type of intense story, it is a good story to read.

This story is a suspense, tragedy, heartbreak story, are you reading to go on an emotional roller coaster? I think it is worth it. There are a lot of talking points in this story that can be asked and talked about. Great for a book club if you want something to really think about it and get your emotions going. This book does have swearing and drugs, also has a family and love. But not everything turns out the way you expect it will.

The author is really good at telling the story, there are a few things I wish was done differently, the chapters are too long, she switches from one person to another person and sometimes it is hard to tell who it is about, there is no break. Some wording is off, but the overall story was brilliant and not what you would think to happen.
