The Book Before Revelations is a modern-day religious fantasy starring angels and demons that wage the ultimate battle. Meet Nate, a young adolescent who has survived nothing but the worst from an abusive family and bullying at school. He meets an angel named Angie, who has experienced similar betrayals in heaven. The two begin to bond on an unusual level. As their friendship grows, Angie hears about an unstoppable war that hell plans to unleash on earth. There is no way heaven stands a chance of victory ... unless the believers on earth can stop it with their heavenly yet human bodies opposing hell's angels and demons. The young boy who was a non-believer begins training one on one with the angel. On Nate and Angie's journey, will they find happiness, love, friends, and peace in a time of war?

My take on this book:              Finally after a little bit of a year later from being asked to read this book by the author I am finally able to read it.

Sadly, I have to say that this book is getting a two-star rating from me. The reason for this is because it’s a good idea for a story but something that didn’t really keep me entertained. There were also some grammatical errors and some spelling mistakes. The book wasn’t edited and it definitely shows a lot through the writing. The characters all seem to be really good and exciting to see in action in the book but it also seems a bit rushed during parts of the story.

Overall, this book has a lot of potential. I hope the author to go back, redo some things, add to it a bit and take his time with writing. Especially with the dialogue since I’m not sure that ageless angels would be talking like teenagers but then again who knows what they will sound like. Mr. Daniel Manning has a lot of potential to grow. I will keep my eye on this author’s work as I believe that his books will become great one day.

Anyways until the next time enjoy this review brought to you by

Shadowhunters

Season 2 Episode 10

By the Light of Dawn (March 6, 2017)

Plot Summary

The New York Institute is attacked as Valentine’s plan for the Soul Sword grows close to fruition; the Shadowhunters race to save their loved ones and the rest of the Downworld; some of the Downworlders target Clary in their plan to stop Valentine.

My take on this episode:                      This episode is pretty good and a lot has happened in this one.

Valentine has been using the little warlock and has decided to attack the institute once most of the shadowhunters are gone to find Valentine and the little warlock got most of the shadowhunters but saved Alec because he was nice to her when they first met when he went there with Clary to bring her mom back from the dead.

Jace and Luke both try to get Clary to see that going after Valentine who has Simon isn’t a good thing and they get it through her first until later on when Valentine hurt’s Simon than Clary isn’t very happy. Jace, Clary, Luke, and Magnus get a plan thought up and goes off to the institute to try and save Simon and try not to get Clary caught and have her touch the sword. Luke with his pack and Raphael with the vampires are out front waiting for the right time to go in and help the shadowhunters defeat Valentine.

Things go as planned and Jace learns a lot more about himself in this episode toward the end. Simon is able to do something that he has never been able to do.

Shadowhunters

Season 2 Episode 9

Bound by Blood

Plot Summary

When Iris activates her blood oath, Clary has more to worry about than hiding from Valentine and the Downworlders; Isabelle and Raphael get closer; Alec tries to figure out what’s happening with his sister.

My take on this episode:                      This episode is a day after, I believe, of the last episode and there is some recap but not by much.

Clary and Simon were getting a little steamy in his canoe near the Jade Wolf’s restaurant when Jace interrupted them because Clary and him were needed at the Institute. It was around that time that Clary’s hand started to turn black and the four of them went to get help from Magnus. He can’t do anything about it only Clary can before the blood oath reaches her heart.

Clary is also dealing with a super protective older brother Jace who doesn’t want her to die and a protective boyfriend that also doesn’t want her to die but also doesn’t want to have to kill her either just so she can’t be used by Valentine or be killed by any other Downworlder.

Isabelle has been hanging out at Raphael’s place to get her vampire venom without having to travel far to get it. Magnus finds out with where Isabelle is at a Downworlder meeting between Raphael, himself, Luke, and the Seelie’s. With where the Seelie told Raphael’s secret because he could smell Izzy’s scent on Raphael. Magnus then tells Alec who goes to try and get Isabelle back. She isn’t happy about that and tells him off.

Clary ends up spending time with Simon as the blood oath is getting stronger while Jace is trying to find Iris’s goddaughter. Jace finds her and takes her back to Clary. Once Clary is with the little warlock everything seems to be good but then apparently Valentine has corrupted the little girl and the two of them went off to be with Valentine.

Clary ends up getting saved by Simon, Jace, and Luke.
