After a fatal hit and
run accident, Ella Monroe fears that she’s lost more than her beloved
parents. Horrifying visions of a past life and a disturbing voice in
her head have psychiatric professionals convinced that she’s lost her
sanity as well. But when Kale–a dark and handsome stranger with a
mysterious past–reveals the true meaning of her visions and the
tremendous power she wields through them, Ella must come to terms with
the devastating truths of her own past, while eluding an ancient Dark
Prince who seeks to control not only her future, but all of mankind’s,
by means of abilities that Ella is only beginning to understand.
 Review:

I liked it. The plot is interesting and almost all the characters are likeable. Each chapter in the book begins with a quote and that’s something really cool. The story is original and the writing is good. Though editing could be better. The beginning had me hooked and the ending left me so many questions. I want the next book.

The prologue and epilogue are really interesting. The middle part of the story is a little dragged but it never gets boring. The romance between Ella and Kale was a little rushed. I am not a fan of insta love but I guess in this case it makes sense because they have a history together, literally!

Ella, the MC is a well developed character. She just lost her parents and
is trying to cope up with the loss. I could feel her pain and sadness.
Some things just shake life so hard that it gets really difficult to go
back to normal.
So, my favorite character would be Alex. He is Ella’s best friend and is also kinda in love with her. He is really cute and if the next book has a love triangle I would be on his side. No offense Kale, you’re hot and mysterious. I am sure you will find many loyal followers! 😀
Jace is from the Council of Immortals and is trying to protect Ella. He doesn’t like Kale much. I am hoping to see more of him in the next book.
Seriously, this book is filled with swoon worthy guys. 😉
Mia was a little annoying at times. But she grows on me and I guess I like her, but she should stay away from Alex or else….. *mwahaha* (that’s my evil laughter, if you didn’t know)
Laurent is the bad guy. He is creepy and scary and is called “The Dark Prince” (Yes, I know!)
The chapters from his POV were interesting.
So all in all this is good book and I suggest this to anyone who loves fantasy.

I have the author Inger Iversen, for a quick interview. Read on!.

Can you tell us a little bit about
yourself?

I
live in Virginia Beach
about ten minutes away from the beach. I live with my tree huggin’ boyfriend
and chubby cat, Max.
What do you do when you are not
writing?
When I’m
not writing I’m usually reading.  Lately, I haven’t had time to read, but
I normally spend a lot of time in Barnes and Noble or browsing the Kindle store
on Amazon. I also work full-time at a chainsaw factory. When I tell people that
they are always amazed, but I have to say that it’s pretty easy work. I make
the small plastic parts that come together to make the whole unit.
How did you come up with the idea of
“Few Are Angels”?
It
came to me in a dream. I ignored it for a while because I was in the middle of
writing Dream Walker,
but once Few Are Angels started invading my daydreams I put it on paper.
Do you have a favorite scene or
character from this book?
I
love all of the characters, but I do have a major soft spot for Alex. He
reminds me of my younger brother. I have a few things planned for him in second
and final book of the series.
What is your work schedule like when
you’re writing?
I
work 12 hours a day, but it’s a rotating shift so I only work 15 days a month.
I also work overnight and I keep the same hours on my off days. Most nights I
stay up until four in the morning and depending on how motivated I am, I can
write just about all night.
Do you ever suffer from writer’s
block? If so, what do you do about it?
Yes,
I have suffered from writers block and it was horrible. I was at the halfway
point with Few Are Angels and I put it down for a few months. I didn’t know
where to go next and my brain was no help at all.  Few Are Angels took a
year to finish and it was partly because of writers block, but I stepping away
from it for a bit was a good thing. When I came back to it my head was clear
and I was able to get over the hurdle.
 

Is there any particular author or
book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult? 
My
favorite book from high school is Of Mice and Men, but there are more recent
books that I love like the Pace series by Shelena Shorts and Kissed by an Angel
series by Elizabeth Chandler.
What can we expect from the upcoming
books in the “Few Are Angels” series?
In
the next book I introduce a few new characters from the Council of Immortals
and also from Kale’s past. In Awakened, Ella learns the truth about her
parent’s deaths while Alex realizes what he has to do save Ella and Kale
struggles with La Luxure, his Blood Lust. 

Besides this series, what other
projects are you working on?

I have a
lot of ideas, but I can only write but so fast. I have a series that I started
before Few Are Angels called, Dream Walker and I plan to polish it up and
publish it sometime next year. I also have a new project that I am working on a
called Ena’s Wolf, here is the synopsis:

The students of Hovsgrove High aren’t
letting the recent deaths of two students ruin their summer and why should
they? It’s not like the deaths are related or caused by an evil presence
prowling in the night, right? Summer vacation before senior year was supposed
to be one of the best times in Ena’s life. Summer parties, cook-outs, hanging
out at Mackie’s—a pool hall in Hovsgove, with her cousin Vi and best friend
T.W. was all ruined in a matter of minutes. The last day of school proves to be
the worst day of Ena’s life when she witnesses a student chased into the woods
and killed by an obscenely large dog. After the “incident” the only thing that
Ena gets to see for the first three weeks of her summer is the inside of her
bedroom. When no body is found and Ena can’t explain why she made up a story about
a dog attack/murder, she ends up grounded and an outcast with the kids in
school. Her only hope to salvage the rest of her summer vacation after her
three week prison sentence is over is her cousin Vi and best friend T.W. The
energetic, smart mouthed New Yorker Vi not only convinces Ena to sneak out to
one of the best parties of the summer, but also convinces her to investigate
the murdered student herself. Neither girl nor T.W.  knows what is in
store for them and as they start asking questions they find out that there are
missing teens that the residents don’t know about. How could the HPD have
missed this key information that a sixteen year and her friends uncover in a
matter of days? Are the police really doing all they can to find the missing
kids or is there something dangerously making its way throughout Hovsgrove and
stealing teens in the night, without the fear of justice?

Do you have any advice to give to
aspiring writers?
                            Keep writing and always be yourself.
Is there anything that you would like
to say to your readers and fans?

  1. Thanks for the review! 🙂 I also really hate insta-love it always just seems so forced and non genuine doesn't it? Fantasy is one of my favorite genres too so this does sound really interesting 🙂

  2. I have seen this book a lot these days on Facebook and I was really curious about it. Thanks for the review. I think I have to check it out! 🙂
