  4. I am just gonna go and be mean I don t care because this book is beyond any stupidity I have ever read before Did you read the blurb I certainly did and was mesmerized with it because let s be frank who doesn t like angels,love triangles and long dresses But,all I got is a Damsel in distress,one overly nice gentleman,one grumpy gentleman and one dude who killed Damsel s parents but still gets the said Damsel to fall in love with him I can t evenOverall,this book was a great frustration I don t g [...]

  5. Warning This review contains spoilers, sarcasm, and swear words.The Title Temptation of Angels Please, anyone tell me what it s got to do with the story.The Blurb Disregard it.It was just created by a promotional team to lead us into believing that we re in for a great story.The Characters Helen Cartwright She s special.She s beautiful,although she doesn t know this,never EVER thought of this in her own entire life so what if they have mirrors at home You shouldn t be able to accuse Helen of bei [...]

  6. I once thought if nothing else, the cover of A Temptation of Angels is very pretty, but then I read this review and learnt how unoriginal it really is sighs Note It s like a summary of my thoughts about this novel than an actual review Warning F words here and there, don t like don t read 1 The heroine is a useless dead weight She needs the guys to save her all the time, she can t do anything but somehow still manages to save the day, she is beautiful but doesn t know it In short, she s a big f [...]

  7. I ve had high expectations after reading the blurb of this book and glancing at the beautiful cover I was eagerly anticipated for this book And now after reading this book, I have to say this book was very disappointing to me I was so looking forward to reading a book about a kick ass heroine, swoon worthy love interests, and brilliant pages of action that kept me well focused into the story But sadly, none of it happened in this book.After seeing her parents brutally murdered by fire in her hom [...]

  8. Michelle Zink Prophecy of the Sisters Series continues to write beautiful, tantalizing novels Her latest A Temptation of Angels is a wicked combination of Angels, a Strong female protag, and Historical Fiction that you won t be able to put it down You ll love Helen Cartwright Helen has good head on her shoulders, she doesn t fall head over heels for a guy or let it clutter up her thoughts She s a girl on a mission I m just gonna say it, she is AWESOME Loved her bravery and tenacity She s up ther [...]

To see full review click here yalbookbriefs 201It s not horrible I mean, the writing was easy to get through and none of the characters were terribly offensive, I just couldn t connect to this book and I think that was it s main problem Well, that and the info dumping.Seriously, I think than anything else the info dumping confused me I sort of got what was going on, but at the same time I didn t It was really weird Another problem I had with the book were the characters I didn t feel like they [...]

  10. First posted at Bewitched BookwormsI admit, I never read a book from Michelle Zink before but I heard good things about her Prophecy of Sisters series Being a sucker for Angel stories I knew I had to read this one Add in the beautiful mysterious cover and I was sold World full of Angels, Hero s, Heroine s, Secrets and Love There is no mistaken here that this book focuses on the world building and setting the odds for what is to come in the next books We discover together with Helen that Angels i [...]

  11. I won an early reviewer s copy of this book from Library Things, so I was obligated to write a review once I was finished The book is not due to be published until early next year, March 2012 There is another person who reviewed this book on Library Things under the name MargK that I completely agreed with A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink was nothing like I expected and I don t mean that in a good way The list of positive things about this book is very short.Read the full review here or o [...]

  12. This book was terrible I couldn t even finish it I read about the first hundred pages and skimmed the rest Clockwork Angel Prince was much better than this garbage SPOILERS I get that vampires are out, angels are in Some books that feature these other creatures are good This was garbage.The main character was atrociously flat I want to say that I hated her but she had barely a personality She was supposed to come across as strong willed and sassy but she was just a whiny stupid child Everything [...]

  13. Ever since meeting Michelle Zink at BEA and determining her to be one of the nicest people I ve ever had the privilege of meeting, I ve been chomping at the bit to get a copy of one of her books So, when I received a copy of this title on Netgalley, I immediately started into it.Helen and I didn t really connect from the very beginning I first realized that I was in trouble when Helen shows almost no remorse for the loss of her parents after they are murdered in a house fire Then, she proceeded [...]

  14. I must disagree with the blurb A Temptation of Angels is not a page turning epic romance.The concept of the story is interesting and had great potential yet it was ruined by cringe worthy romance and an uninteresting characters Zink s characters lacked the spark of originality that is needed to have a character stand out in YA fiction.You have Helen, the over zealous and in my opinion dim, girl who thinks she is indestructible She is the bold and beautiful girl who boys like yet she does not see [...]

  15. Coming from the author of the perennial favorite, Prophecy of the Sisters which, by the way, I haven t read , A Temptation of Angels doesn t sit neatly inside of a specific genre cubby hole Although the premise involves a kind of angelic demonic war, there are paranormal elements, historical romance, and even a dash of steampunk The book takes off when 17 year old Helen Cartwright s family home and, incidentally, her family is burned to the ground by a mysterious order known as The Legion As it [...]

  16. There s no shortage of angel paranormal books in YA right now, but there s something special about A Temptation of Angels it s an addictive, fascinating, page turner that s remarkably refreshing for its genre I haven t read Michelle Zink s first series, Prophecy of the Sisters, yet but this reading her newest release has made me immensely curious to pick up those books A Victorian setting I LOVE Victorian settings and books that can take that a step further by incorporating a paranormal twist ar [...]

  17. First I have to express my love for this cover It s just so beautiful The synopsis pulled me in as well and I was even excited What s not to love A historical fiction filled with tension and formality, gentleman with honor and ladies with grace and dignity, add in some angels and a possible love triangle I was hooked Michelle Zink s gifts as a visual writer immersed me in the story from the very beginning What Helen, the main character, experiences in the first few pages is steeped in imagery a [...]

  18. A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink is an interesting book With all the angel books out there lately, I found this one to be quite different Between the time period, setting, and unusual mythology, A Temptation of Angels is not your average angel book.I can t recall a specific time period being mentioned, but the overall feel and references used point to a historical setting This book definitely has a historical feel to it, but is not encumbered with long descriptions or details of the setti [...]

  19. See the BOOK REPORT CARD at The Fairytale Nerd.3.5 stars It only took ONE chapter ONE And it all came back to me just how beautiful Michelle Zink writes Flowing and smooth, I easily got lost in the story The language used merges perfectly with the setting While there could have been fighting scenes and less sneaking around, I found the story addicting and enjoyable The characters are likable, and there s no one that I didn t love Love triangle Hmmm There were teeny tiny hints, but if it was pur [...]

  20. Two stars means this was really just an okay book for me I didn t hate it, but I didn t particularly like it either It s not that Michelle Zink is a bad writer I actually enjoyed her writing, it was just that I never really connected with Helen Or any of the other characters for that matter That s not necessarily a fault of Zink s something just wasn t there for me I never really cared, I guess I could easily have put the book down at any point and not felt the need to pick it back up I wasn t c [...]

  21. It s no secret that I m a Michelle Zink fan, but I have to say I may like this story than Prophecy of the Sisters Shocking, I know She has such a way with words, I feel like I m reading a story and not a book Does that make sense Also, she is one of the best third person writers I think I know, I am jealous of her skill

  22. 3.5 Which means it definitely wasn t a favorite, but the author put in their all and deserves recognition.

  23. Right now 3 stars I need to think on this one though It might go down to 2 stars Review coming soon.

  24. Review Courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick Dirty The plot of this stand alone starts out fast on the first page and keeps moving quickly tensions build around the secret descendants of angels and the stakes are high to the very end Zink builds a convincing and mysterious world around historical London that will keep you turning the pages Opening Sentence Though it was late, it was not the sound of arguing that woke Helen in the dead of night.The Review Within the first few pages, we re thrust int [...]

  25. I was first drawn to this book by the stunning cover I was on the authors blog when I noticed it and had to know what it was about So I looked it up in and knew I had to read it I love to read new things involving angels I like to read how different authors have a different take, a different concept of how things work I will admit, I have not read anything by Michelle Zink before However, now I will look to rectify that I really want to read her Prophecy of the Sisters series Being new to Michel [...]

  26. So, I was a little torn about this but after a little time to let it sink in, I decided that I did like A Temptation of Angels There are definitely some negative aspects to it, but they end up overshadowed by the positives.Let s get the bad out of the way, shall we In the first portion of the book, maybe the first third or so, I felt really confused I didn t understand what was going on I didn t get the mythology of the angels It was kind of frustrating.What s worse is that the mythology is neve [...]

  27. Obviously, this is an instance of review copy failure To be fair, I did receive this ARC after publication, but I still meant to have the review done way before now Better late than never, though, right The good news is that, despite some predictions to the contrary, I did actually like A Temptation of Angels, and, in some ways, I was very surprised and impressed by Zink s novel.On the surface, this book was poised to frustrate me endlessly a special snowflake heroine with violet eyes, the murde [...]
