Review - Thorn (Thorn Saga #1) by Joshua Ingle







I received an e copy from Netgalley containing the first two books in the series. All opinions are my own.
First of all, I love the premise of  angels vs demons and this was an original concept. Unfortunately, I have a few "issues" with the stories. I couldn't connect with any of the characters. They were just so dark and vile that I couldn't relate to them at all. Thorn, the main character was looking for redemption. One moment, he was pure evil and suddenly he wanted to be good again.
I'm all for anti-heroes and I love dark stories, but this was emotionally draining. I saw no light at the end of the tunnel. I know that these are demons and demons do bad things, but geez. Somewhere in between, the suicide whispers, the mass executions and the murder/attempted murders, I lost interest and  was hoping for the end to hurry up. But lo and behold,  I loved the twist at the end of book two and will finish the trilogy just to see how it ends.


I would recommend this series to anyone that likes very dark and twisted tales.

Pros: original concept, very well written
Cons: unlikable characters,  juvenile dialogue from certain characters.


3 out of 5 stars
