Angel in the Storm Review and Book Giveaway

“The difference between vampires and angels? Angels are real.” This very slogan is what drew me to pick up “Angel in the Shadows,” the first book in the Angel Series. I am not one keen on reading about incidents of the supernatural in the form of a story. I usually stick with the testaments of real life events. As I began to read the book and the story unfolded I was not able to put it down. I found myself captivated by the world of angels and demons which are present among us every day. Lisa Grace with her gift of storytelling has given us a glimpse into the world of the supernatural without diminishing the foundational truth of Christ and His design for our lives. 
Angel in the Shadows is about a young girl named Megan who has the ability to see angels and demons. Megan discovers this ability while away at a Christian Youth Camp. Megan did not ask for the ability to see into the world of the supernatural it was a gift given to her by God. We are chosen by God to have certain gifts we do not chose but are chosen and so here was Megan chosen to see what others could not.

Megan’s entire world turned upside down when she came face to face with the demon Angel Judas. Megan becomes involved in a dangerous game of cat and mouse as she maneuvers to keep from falling into Judas’ traps. She realizes that only through the strength in her faith and reliance on Christ would she be able to defeat the subtle deceptions and outright destructions Judas was causing. Megan would not be alone in her venture against Judas. She has the help of an angel named Johnny as well as many of her friends who stood with her in the fight to stop Judas.

 “Angel in the Shadows” is geared towards young teen adults, but is a great read for adults as well. The book deals with issues such as premarital sex, self-esteem, drugs, faith in Christ and the reality of the spiritual world around us.

Lisa Grace has taken into careful account to not only embed scripture into the core of the book but the entire plan of salvation is there. This is an amazing read for young teens facing the pressures and temptations that are set before them each day. Lisa Grace has shown through her character Megan the strength in standing for what is right even if you have to stand alone. The reality is that our God never leaves us alone even when we think we are.

I absolutely love the message in this book. Lisa Grace has hit the target mark with this series combining entertainment and truth all in one neat little package. This is not just a story but an equipping knowledge using the foundational elements of faith and strength in God as the only way to defeat the power of evil. The Angel Series is a top recommend on my list for everyone’s shelf.

Angels in the Shadows Book 1 in the series and Angel in the Storm book 2 in the series has been optioned by Motion Picture Pro Studios. Both books have been fast-tracked into pre-production. Angel in the Shadows has also been listed on AOL’s top ten most challenged book list. For more information on Lisa Grace and her Angel Series visit her at
