My Review

Books about angels have always interest me, but I very rarely find ones that I like. Heaven’s Forgotten is one of the ones I really enjoyed.

This is a story about a woman Maria or Moira as she is now known who was ‘visited’ by an angel called Michael. She conceived a daughter who is a Nephilim. Her daughter, Penelope. is stronger than normal and gets her in a lot of trouble at school. As a result. they are always moving.

When the angel, Michael, now fallen finds out he has a daughter he must decide if he is going to allow her to be used by the host of fallen angels for their own nefarious purposes. Moira will have to be strong if she is to rescue her daughter from those bent on using her for their own purposes.

I really liked the premise of this story and was curious about how it would play out. I really wish there was more information on the fallen but felt that it was enough for the plot.

The characters were interesting enough but I felt like the main character was lackluster. She had no spunk and if it was left up to her, Penelope would have died, She just basically depended on the men in her life to take care of business for her and so as a main characters, she didn’t shine.

The plot was pretty straightforward with a couple twists that I saw coming but still appreciated, and it moved along at a good pace. There was a bit of suspense, action and intrigue which helped to spice things up a lot.

Overall, a fairly good read with some good elements, an interesting plot and likeable characters.
