Check out the rest of the blog tour here! :D
The Lord has given Stary, a high school freshman, a mission: extinguish the evil residing in the murderer of two teens—Maren and Umbra. Stary never imagined that her strange visions meant that she was the Spirit Warrior for God and now with her powers activated, she must train to use them and try not to get caught by the murderer who has the ability to hide and conjure up the dark powers from the fallen angel himself—Lucifer. If Stary fails, not only will she lose her life, but Maren and Umbra will lose their entry into heaven and the world will be exposed to the madness of the murderer for the next forty years until the new Spirit Warrior is born.
ReviewFirst off I would like to thank my friend Sheenah for notifying me of this tour. I saw the cover reveal on Facebook and WOW! Can we just stop for a moment and appreciate the detail and the beauty of the art? The art is by Cherriuki. Yeah, just wanted to give a shout out before I start the review. And do note, even if I am friends with Sheenah and Morgan, my opinion on this book is unbiased.
Okay, let's start!
For the first 2 chapters, I was confused with the story, especially with chapter 1. We weren't given any context and that threw me off a bit. The descriptions were hard to imagine. And the added mystery and confusion the author intended was not helping. However, this isn't a total bad thing (intentional or not). Due to the "confusion", the mystery was that much better. I mean you don't want to show all your cards before the match even begin. ;) So it wasn't bad that I was lost because it just adds to how weird and confusing everything is to Stary. Plus it was only the first two chapters, no biggie, because the fun is about to start from there on.
