In ArchonSabrina Benulis has created a dazzlingly imaginative tale set in a lush, vivid supernatural world filled with gargoyles and candlelight, magic and murder, in which humans, angels, demons, bookk those in between battle for supremacy—and survival. The concept is interesting as well playing with traditional ideas of the Antichrist or Ruin as she is referred to in this book. The book was referred to me by another Goodreads member and it’s a refreshingly different direction to a tough genre, a winner in my eyes!

Archon is an epic fantasy novel that has its own plot but still alludes to a much larger story that is yet to come in the next 2 books.
Books by Sabrina Benulis. Soon Angela finds herself at the center of the struggle between Heaven and Hell–where good and evil are blurry at tge and where the likely outcome is life or death.
Because of that I am keeping an open mind and hoping obok the finished copy of this book underwent some more revision before it is published. She left the room, clattering down the steep staircase and along a hallway that emptied into the broken church.
Kim, too, was an especially interesting character. Dalla pugnalata, che manda in pezzi la lama dei coltello che stringeva nella mano, ai colpi di pistola, il suo corpo sembra essere come protetto da una sorta di scudo. Those who need a Twilight variety plot with overly perfect characters, people who hate anything dark or raziell, and those who like a very easy read.
Archon (Books of Raziel, book 1) by Sabrina Benulis
The way she describes everything is really surreal!! The deep space research vessel Thanatos Rising has been sent to ascertain what it is and where it came from. To me, it takes no talent to dump a ton of info at the beginning. Return to Book Page. Parents will find offensive.
I’m not entirely sure if it is my lack of experience in this sub genre or just this particular book but I found Archon, the first razjel of The Books of Raziel series, to be completely confusing. When the action was happening, I was a bit confused, and the slow parts of the story—which there are quite a few of—seemed to drag on.
Two of Angela’s paintings hang on the walls of her bedroom – that’s all we need to know, the rest of that waffle is totally superfluous and confusing AND irritating to read.
Oh, by the way, both of these villains end up having more nobility than the angel who also is one of the players in the story. Maybe this synopsis will help out the other readers of the book as well since it seems they missed a lot of the information that was actually in the book though they said it was not there.
When I first picked up the book I saw the acknowledgements, and that the author thanked God first. Not even the Ridge Runners, their sworn enemies, determined to control the entire shifter community of New Mexico.
It was hard not to feel sympathy for even the darkest of characters. Even when I wasn’t reading, I felt a little like I had one foot in the book and the hook in reality.
Let me start by saying that I reviewed this book from an ARC copy provided by the publisher. Readers will not find that quality in many other books. I just hope she doesn’t take too long! Nothing and no one gets past them. In questa storia non ho trovato nulla di quello che vi teh.

While it seemed that Benulis often provided details about the physical setting, the best mental picture that I could get was that everything was gloomy and falling apart. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Dec 30, Shara marked it as dnf Shelves: Author went a little over board on the vagueness of his character.
Immortui Adam Alexander Haviaras 0 1 0 Only when fear is at its most intense can true heroism come into the light. Thanks achon telling us about the problem. The explanations of the angels is something else I want to touch on briefly, because they did not seem well explained enough, and it left me wondering whether the author even had a clear picture.
I enjoy fantasy novels, both urban and otherwise, but every fantasy novel has to be grounded into reality by the author’s imagination, creating a plane of existence that the characters inhabit and that readers can visit. Angela, the main protagonist, is a strong young woman despite her insecurities. Arcuon was that thought coming from?
