Children of Icarus by Caighlan Smith

                                I was sent this book by Switch Press to read and review.

This book begins super interestingly, it really draws you in! The authors writing style is really well developed and fun to read. The story is super suspenseful, like I almost got a headache reading through it. It is definitely hard to put down, its about this community that chooses people until they are 16 to go and try to become an angel.

I was very pleased with the plot line but the one thing I was iffy about was the way some of the characters didn’t seem to connect. What I mean is some of them just didn’t make sense but thats a minor thing. One major thing happened though that you’ll never see coming. There wasn’t really a love interest or romance in it, most of it was adventure, which is a nice change. I also like that the main character isn’t tough and is kind of helpless through the whole story. All in all I gave it a 5 out of 5, it is a really good book I would recommend it to anyone who loves suspense and fiction.

This book comes out August 1, 2016, I will probably purchase a hard copy for myself and let my friends read it.
