Review Tour: Lucian Divine by Renee Carlino
“My guardian angel is a drunk.”
Evelyn Casey's life is at a standstill. She's in her mid-twenties, struggling with the dating scene in San Francisco. Nothing seems to be working out, and she’s starting to think that she’ll live out her days in her crummy apartment with her overbearing roommate, Brooklyn. It's absurd, but sometimes Evey longs for a guardian angel to show up and save the day.
And then he does. Seriously. His name is Lucian and he's a guardian angel, been on the job for two thousand years. His sudden presence in her life is both good—he's brilliant, witty, and warm—and bad—he's brilliant, witty, warm, and hot as ----. But as perfect as Lucian seems, he’s got problems of his own. He’s taken up drinking and he’s brazenly inserted himself into Evey’s life, going against the greatest cosmic law ever created.
For Evey, the rules are simple: You are not allowed to hook up with your guardian angel. But sometimes fulfilling your destiny requires a leap of faith, a confrontation with God.
Yes, God as in God.
**** 4 Star Review ****
I am not a fantasy reader; not at all. I have been a huge fan of Renee's since her very beginning. So when I saw this book and saw it had a fantasy element to it, I was afraid to read it. I didn't want to read it and not like it. I know I am not always going to like what all of my go-to authors write, but I just didn't want to be that person who didn't like something Renee wrote.
Well, my fears were unfounded. There really isn't anything I didn't like about this book. I am not even sure where to take this review.
This is one of those books that once you finish, you are like, "dang, what did I just read?". It's such a unique story and told with such beautiful prose, you can't help but to fall in love with it, no matter what genre you prefer. This is one of those books that can be loved by all. And most likely, will be loved by all.
