2001 Northern Territory Australia – Grace is 8 years old and on her way to ballet. She hates ballet but she meets a friend named Hope who helps her through her childhood and her struggles, and for poor Grace the worst is yet to come.
I was very excited to read this novella. I absolutely love the cover art and when I first looked at it I knew that I would be reading something unlike anything that I had read before. I was right. The Angels Are Here is the introductory Novella to the Paradox series by Patti Roberts and what an introduction it is! Like any novella its short but the author does a really good job of introducing us to her main character Grace and the series. Only briefly describing the war of amongst the angels the story focuses mostly on Grace and gives a very detailed back story to her.
The Angels Are Here was so beautifully written. I was drawn in and hooked from the first page. Patti Roberts takes her characters and brings them to life for you. It’s not very often that I read a book that brings me to tears but I outright bawled on this one. You feel connected to the characters, you feel their pain, their sorrow, and their peace.
I give this book 5 Ravens and I truly cant wait to read more!

Paradox – The Angels Are Here. Book review by Jayde Scott
Jayde Scott rated it
Having read Paradox – The Angels Are Here, I feel I’ve been left with a different world view on angels, heaven and spirituality.
The second part focuses on Grace, a little girl who’s gone through a lot in life, and whose life is about to be turned upside down.
While the angels’ part focuses on world building and description and setting a solid background for the next books in the series, Grace’s part emphasises her emotions based on a deep loss, her relationship with her family and the actions that rise into a dramatic crescendo, inevitably leading to an ending that will leave you wanting to read the book all over again because you just couldn’t see it coming.
There’s no doubt Patti Roberts is someone who knows how to build strong characters and a vivid setting. I liked the darker side of some of the angels. It was a unique and convincing way to view spirituality and the angels’ role within humanity.
I also liked how they were connected to Grace and Grace’s role within the larger picture. I do agree with others who said some questions were left unanswered, but I feel that was necessary in order to be able to explore those in detail in books to follow.
All in all, this was a great first book in the series with interesting characters that invite further exploration.
It was a touching read that I would recommend to all fantasy readers, and I eagerly await the next book in the series.

3rd May 2011 – Book review – 4 out of 5 – by Darkiss Reads
The world of Angels in which Patti Roberts creates is one of greed, power, sex, control with a bit of conspiracy theory which lays the ground work for the war between good and evil.
But who is good and who is evil remains to be seen. Her world of Angels is multi-faceted and for a brief moment I was immersed into their world and presented with very complex and twisted characters and I found myself wanting more.
The author has truly created a villain worth reading, he is dark and so very bad that you can’t help but want to see more of his dammed soul. Read more…
