Angels, angels everywhere
Today I finished Fallen by Lauren Kate, another book about the Grigori angels...In fact, I'd describe this book as Twilight with fallen angels instead of vampires. I think that if this book had been released before Twilight, I might have liked it a lot more. Then again...I didn't like the portrayal of angels; it did not honor any religious traditions, and frankly, as a lifelong Catholic, this absence of any religious mythology left me confused. I kept trying to figure out which (fallen) angel was which, but the story was not rooted enough in biblical (or apocryphal) tradition to do so. The one word that best summarizes my feelings about this book? "Meh."
