| Book Review |
While Angel Voices was an OK read, I think the plot was quite ambitious for such a small word count. When Will stumbles into a church to rest after his father beats him to a pulp for finding out he’s gay, it’s Will’s roommate Quinn to the rescue. And therein lies the problem – we’re supposed to believe that Will and Quinn have been interested in each other pretty much since they met, however we don’t see any chemistry between them. But there’s a sexy scene right after Will gets home from the hospital where his injuries are quite extensive, and not only was it ill-timed, but it lacked emotion. The other issue I had was Quinn’s family. They were fun and boisterous, which I think was an effort to offset Will’s family, but it was too much. They were too good to be true. The writing was decent, and I think a larger story could have given the story justice. Like I said before, this was just too much to try with so few words.
