Summary from publisher:

Seventeen-year-old Grace Ann Miller is no ordinary runaway. After missing for weeks, Grace is found on the estate of international rock star Gavin Vault, half-dressed and yelling for help. Over the course of twenty-four hours Grace holds an entire police force captive with incredulous tales of angels, demons, and war; intent on saving Gavin from lockup, and her family from worry over her safety. But instead, authorities believe that Grace is ill, and suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, the victim of assault and a severely fractured mind. Undeterred, Grace reveals the secret existence of dark angels on earth, an ancient prophecy and a wretched curse steeped in Biblical myth. Grace’s claims set into motion an ages-old war, resulting in blood, death and the loss of everything that matters. But are these the delusions of an immensely sick girl, or could Grace’s story actually be true? Praefatio is Grace’s account of weeks on the run, falling in love and losing everything but her faith. Who do you believe?

I'm excited to be participating in another blog tour for Month9Books. This time I was able to read and review Georgia McBride's Praefatio. Anyone who knows me knows that I am not big on angels and/or demons in books. As a way to read a bit out of my "comfort zone" I gave this one a chance though. I find it a bit hard to review because I'm quite afraid that I will post spoilers.

I was impressed that this was a first novel. The world building, characters and dialogue were good. The concept was a bit different for me but McBride made it work quite well. I had a bit of a hard time at first keeping the characters straight but was able to figure things out fairly quickly.

It actually wasn't as dark as I was expecting but it was plenty dark. The angels and angel myths presented within the story are interesting and developed.

Although angel books will probably never be a go to genre for me, Praefatio was a quick read with plenty of action to move along the plot and well developed characters.
