Angela Mathers is obsessed with visions of angels, supernatural creatures who haunt her thoughts by day and seduce her dreams by night. Released from a mental institution, she hopes her new university, West Wood Academy, will give her the chance at a normal life. But such is not to be. . . . For a secret coven plots within West Wood, and demons and angels alike walk the streets of Luz, searching for the key to open Raziel's book—a secret tome from a lost archangel. Some wish to destroy Raziel, others, like the Supernal Israfel, one of the highest of the high, to free him. For when the Archon rises as foretold, they will control the supernatural universe. Torn between mortal love and angelic obsession, Angela holds the key to both Heaven and Hell, and both will stop at nothing to possess her. . . .

I decided for 2012 to start a DNF finish shelf instead of quietly deleting books I couldn't get into and didn't finish.The cover drew me in. I love this cover. The synopsis of the book looked interesting too. However, I find myself unable to concentrate and my mind keep wondering. There are mult...
The world of Archon is a strange and dark version of our own, I think. Some things seem familiar but with a darker, more sinister feel.
