Paradox Series: Spanning over centuries to the present day, this is a story about love, loss and betrayal. The horrifying discovery that nothing is as it seems. When there is nowhere left to run & letting go is your only choice. Nine hundred years ago, under the complete cover of darkness, the Grigorian army rose silently from their underground lair and attacked the Bulguardian Royal Palace. The bloody and violent battle between the two most legendary houses raged on. All but destroying the majestic Royal City of Altair. It was not the first war that Juliette had endured between good and evil. And it most certainly would not be her last. Today, A little girl's world is turned upside down by a visitor,the Angel of Death. She finds herself trapped in a nightmare, consumed by her paralyzing loss and overwhelming grief. The haunting visions and untimely deaths of others are a constant reminder that life and death are only a heartbeat away. She eventually befriends the unusual little girl who moves in next door with captivating violet eyes and a profound knowledge of things that far exceeds her tender years. A saga crossing over two worlds. Two souls being drawn precariously together over the centuries. When your destiny has been written in blood, and you are left with one burning question. Is your Guardian Angel from Heaven or Hell?

What do I like second to all things Vampire...all things Angel. Bad or Good. I think we all have one of each residing on our shoulders. Don't you?

Patti Roberts has written a stunning and shocking novella that delves into the age old question of what awaits us after we die. Or more importantly, what guides the events that spins the world. Paradox provides a unique view of Angels and those they protect?!?! As always...let's take a look at these captivating beings:
  • Abbadon - is an important player in the on-going war between the House of the Bulguardians and the House of the Grigorians. Problem is...he plays for the bad guys, the rebellions...the Grigorians.
  • Cerberus - is the leader of the House of the Grigorians.
  • Thieria - is the younger sister of Abbadon and Cerberus. She is tired of being treated like a little girl and will seek to solve this problem.
  • Pandora - is Cerberus's wife. She has few fans in the Grigorian family.
  • Brian - is the father of a very special little girl. His duty is to protect her, before and after his life on Earth ends.
  • Grace - has a special role to play on Earth. She is guarded...and wanted by many.
  • Kate - is Grace's grieving mother. Kate spends much of this book trying to recover from a terrible loss and Grace is forced to take care of herself and her mom.
I am a sap for anything that brings me to tears...and this book did just that. Death of a loved one is always a difficult situation to address and Patti does it so beautifully. I don't think many of us stop to think about the fact that if good angels exist...that it is entirely possible for evil angels to exist. This novella definitely gives you something to think about.

While I truly enjoyed this book, I was left feeling a little confused. It was sometimes difficult to follow the back and forth between past and present. I am hoping that the next installment will include more insight. I am definitely looking forward to the rest of this series.
