I’ve got two book reviews from Rachel’s Random Resources today, and the first is the second book in the Fallen Angel series by S C Cunningham – Karma!
Author: S C Cunningham
Length: 345 pages
At the age of four, Amy was taken… She survived.
A week later, another little girl was taken…She didn’t.
Angry that a bad man has gotten away with murder, feisty young Amy Fox makes a deal with the heavens. When she dies, if she’s been a good girl, would they let her sit on a cloud for a while, invisible, and get the bad people who slip through God’s fingers?
Her deal and God long forgotten, career girl Amy mysteriously dies. Her lifeless body is found beneath a London underground commuter train.
She awakens in the afterlife to discover an international network of like-minded souls who’ve all made the same deal. A sophisticated MI5-esque justice machine sits in the skies. The only evidence they leave behind during their earthly visits is a small white feather sashaying to the ground.
Amy hates rules, she may be a new Angel but for how long? Abusing her powers, lusting after her partner, avenging personal scores, protecting the underdog, dishing out unauthorized karma on terrorists, traffickers, abusers, hunters, bullies, bitches and competing Warlords will have her thrown below ground.
In a chaotic world of vendettas, jealous ex’s on her heels and powerful adversaries trying to close her Unit down, Amy has never worked so hard in her entire earthly life. She has to wonder if making the deal was a mistake.
For some reason, I didn’t enjoy Karma as much as I enjoyed the first book in the series – The Deal. Having said that, I wasn’t disappointed by it as I have been by other series that don’t live up to the first.
There were times when the flow was a bit choppy, and I personally feel that the story could have been tightened a little, but in general I thoroughly enjoy the author’s fast-paced, witty comments mixed with an almost “thinking-out-loud” style that moves the reader through the story very quickly.
The story itself is an intriguing concept and I love the instant doses of karma that Amy, Jack and the rest of the unit dish out to Erthfolk. In many cases, I felt like I was watching video clips of those “instant karma” videos that make you punch the air and say “ha!”
While the book does deal with some really sensitive topics, it does so with humour and warmth, and I rather enjoyed it.
If you’re looking for a light-hearted quick read, that still has some depth to the story, I’d recommend the Fallen Angel Series.
