    3. The only word I can think of to describe this book is intoxicating. Once started, it's so hard to put it down. I instantly fell in love with the concept, the characters, and the story development. I was swept up into an edgy world of angels and daemons where modern and old-world culture is intermixed into everyday life, and of course, humans are none the wiser. I was completely infatuated with its lead character, half-daemon Sarah Connelly, and the mission she is tasked to complete. All the char [...]

    4. A fun, engaging adventure told in a light, easy to read style. Intelligent without being pretentious.The story is told in a first person narrative from the perspective of Sarah Connelly, a 1/2 daemon operative with SITO -- a secret organization charged with policing the activities of Homo daemonis (daemons), and Homo angelus (angels) as well as keeping their existence secret from the more familiar Homo sapiens. Sarah, unhappily stuck in an entry level position that is equal parts truant officer [...]

    5. I had the pleasure of workshopping part of this novel at Mills College. What I remember from reading earlier drafts was how much I loved Sarah, the protagonist. Seeing her character develop in the novel made me love her even more. Sarah is great queer character. As someone who is attracted to people of all different genders, it is empowering to see a character who shares my sexuality. Also, Sarah is a "halfer" (part daemon). Angels and daemons are "othered" not only by wings, horns, and tails, b [...]

    6. I went through Angelus in one sitting because the plot just kept pulling me along. It's likely you'll want to stay up all night too. This is fantastic writing and the world building was great. I've read a lot of angel/demon stories before and not only does Angelus have an intriguing premise, it also follows through by making you intensely curious and invested in a universe co-inhabited by humans, angels, daemons, and halfies. I loved the supporting characters and Sarah herself. Overall, can't wa [...]

    7. I marked it 4 stars but it's mostly 3.75 stars. I mean, it was a very good book, and really interesting, adventurous, with some suspence, battling, fighting, and just a touch of romancep, that must be the problem. I don't say it should have had sex scenes and making out sessions. But, Jeez, at least a damn kiss?!?! Nope. I waited until the end for the characters to understand they liked each other and see a damned kiss. But nothing happened. Nope. They had to get to know each other better first. [...]
