"Demons live to deceive."
I think it was like six months until I finally read this book! I have no idea why I waited so long! Once I picked this book up, I was HOOKED! I really have no idea where to begin with this review. This book was awesome and I am speechless! It was full of so many amazing characters, demons, wars, deaths, betrayals, love, friendship, and angels of course.
Mammina takes us on a journey to Pommel where we meet Michael. Michael has a secret.. He was created for something important. Michael was created to be a demon. But Micheal is not and will not ever be a demon! Well... that is if he can help it. Michael sets out to warn other kingdoms of the plague and while doing so, he plans to destroy the demons and the Demon Lord. So what happens when the demon plague follows him wherever he goes? What happens when the demons take his son? The Angels of Resistance happen! Michael meets many amazing people on his journey and he turns his tragedy into a reason to fight and live.
"I was your minion, but now I've become your destroyer."
David V. Mammina created a beautiful world. His words and characters were so creative and vivid that his book just flowed throughout my mind. He really has a way with words. I was picturing these demons exactly how he was describing them and let me be the first to tell you... they are scary! I am happy to announce that I did not see them in my dreams last night! hah
The Angels of Resistance is a very complex book with millions of characters and lots of things going on at once. I had to take notes on all the characters at first, just so I could figure everyone out. I really enjoyed Mammina's characters! Some were mean, some were nice, but they were all fun! I was really drawn to Predella for some reason! She was totally badass and I enjoyed reading about her battle scenes! Oh, since we are on the topic... lets talk about these war/battle scenes! THEY WERE EPIC! Mammina describes these scenes so perfectly! I felt as if I was right there in the middle of the war about to get killed by a demon. I love being able to place myself into a book! That is when you know you are reading a wonderful book and I am almost positive that other readers would agree.
I really look forward to reading more from David. V. Mammina and you guys all should to! This book is not your average angel vs. demon book. I know there are a lot of post apocalypse books out there but this one is unique. This book is truly like nothing I have ever read.
