Book Review: Don't Call Me Angel by Alicia Wright Brewster

Genre: Young Adult (Urban Fantasy)
Date Published: June 15, 2012
Publisher: Dragonfairy Press

The Blurb:
After crawling her way out of Hell, Six is ready to cast aside her angel wings and all the responsibilities that come with them. But Earth is not as peaceful as she imagined it. Demons, dark angels, and other hell-beasties escaped before her, and they're not as content as she is to live a quiet life on Earth. A fellow angel who escaped Hell with her commits a series of soul-murders, destroying human souls so they can't go to the afterlife. Although Six has conflicting feelings about humans, she goes after the other angel to keep their escape a secret from the one she fears most.

My Review:
Don't Call Me Angel is the prequel to what will be the Forsaken Series by Alicia Wright Brewster. I liked the idea behind this book, but I needed a little bit more from the book to enjoy it. My issues started once Six makes her escape. When she makes it to Earth, she has no clothing on and can't hide her wings. The humans she walks by either look at her with lust or are offended by her lack of clothing. Did any of them notice her wings at all? They sure didn't seem to. I would have expected some confusion or fear rather than going straight to lust and offense. Maybe I'm the weird one. I also never felt a connection with the characters. I would have liked some kind of background or details or something to give me reason to like the characters and want to read more. I think the potential is there for a great story. In the end, I don't really know much more than what is already stated in the book's blurb. This one just wasn't for me, but that doesn't mean you won't like it.

About the Author:
I'm a mild-mannered lady of average height and above average paranormal obsession. By day, I work in an office. At night, I'm an author, an electronics junkie, and a secret superhero. (Please don't ask what my superpower is. That's not very polite.)

In my virtually non-existent free time, I love to read, watch movies, and eat food. I am particularly fond of the food-eating and make a point to perform this task at least three times per day, usually more.
