I Give This ...

My husband would probably say I'm being generous giving this two butterflies after listening to me contemplate giving up or finishing it.  I'm sure others like this story.  I found it to be a way to similar to Stephen King's It in the beginning.  And no matter how terrifying fallen angels should be, it's not written to be more scary that Pennywise.  In fact, I had a heck of a time figuring out who were the good guys and who were the bad ones.  The story alters between far to many view points to lessen any confusion.  I didn't connect with any of the characters.  The events were all over the place.  And then ending just sort of happened with the characters still not having any real clue about what's happening to them.  I don't think I will be continuing this series unless the future books happen to fall into my lap.
