Review by Jane, Wandering stars by Marlon Pierre-Antoine

4 Stars

One stormy night while walking her dog; Indigo, Alice witnessed an argument between two men under the pier. For some unknown reason she was drawn to them and found herself edging closer to see if she could hear what they were saying. It was no use though because they weren’t speaking English and she didn’t recognise the language. One of the men made quite an impression on Alice and she couldn’t get him out of her head, he appeared in her dreams while she slept and one night she even saw him in the store where she worked, but before she had chance to speak to him he disappeared into thin air making Alice begin to doubt whether he was actually real or just a figment of her imagination.

Lucas:- aka Lucifer, is ‘the’ fallen angel turned Devil, after seeing Alice he also feels a connection. At first he’s unsure if she is being used by his enemies to lure him, or if what he feels for her is genuine. Against his better judgement he can’t stay away from her, he pops in and out of her world on and off until eventually he approaches her while she is watching the sunset and the relationship begins.

Obviously it’s not ideal to fall in love with the ‘devil’ himself so this relationship has a few issues to over come….. but to be honest Lucas doesn’t come across as the ‘bad ass’ you’d expect him to be, he cares for Alice, his intentions are always good and his actions are too ’nice’ to be devilish!!!!

I was immediately drawn to this book by the cover art, I love it its so pretty and appropriate to the story which is the ultimate conflicted romance with the paranormal/Angel twist. Overall it was well written, the characters were fully developed and likable and the scenes are described beautifully. It was an interesting enough plot though it didn’t scream of uniqueness. I would recommend this to PR lovers and I will be looking out for more work by Marlon Pierre-Antione.
