&Free Epub ☆ Ange'el ☠ Ebook or Kindle ePUB free

A dystopian society with a stratified class system based on race, where access to power depends on gender and state controls the women’s wombs It sounds all too familiar, but of course it is just fiction or is it? I found it fascinating how Jamie was able to address so many relevant issues in such an engaging and accessible novel Big battles, fairy tales and classic romantic narratives bring color, emotion and engagement to an essay that dissects how our belief systems about our race and gender shape our destiny I was very pleased to see both men and women portrayed compassionately, and was really delighted to see the reversal of powergender dynamics at Ahe’ey where men are denied access to power The battle scenes are very well executed and yet violence is never romanticized or trivialized *Thanks to Netgalley for giving me a copy for an honest review.*Honestly, I blindly started this book not knowing what I'll find From the look of the cover, I had thought it was some kind of manga But then, the drawing looked terrible too Maybe it was the title that caught my attention Still, I finished it but I'm not sure if my pronunciation is correct Okay, here goes It was confusing at first I didn't know if I'd be dealing with angels and demons since hey, the title is Ange'el, or some other paranormal characters or if it is mythological But no, first sign of trouble, Gabriel, the male protagonist, got hurt and it took him some time to recover So there's no one immortal here A lot of toooo long narrations (that I found inconsequential and unnecessary) later, I finally got it So it was some kind of genetic or biological revolution Yes, I'd rather think of Ahe'ey as the long lost kingdom of Atlantis I've always been fascinated with that But like said, the story could have been really interesting if it wasn't too dragging It was toooo slow I'm sorry but I just found the development of the story too painfully slow I was looking foraction! With all the talk about warriors, Iwas expecting some kind of exciting battle But on the bright side, I loved the campaign for women's rights See this?I am a proud feminist.I liked that this book is some kind of instrument for the search for gender and racial equality Discrimination is so old school and yet it still happens everywhere I am an Asian A Filipino I don't believe that there is such a thing as superior or inferior race Other races were just bornfortunate when it comes to location than others I am a woman I am proud of my femininity, my passion, my intelligence, my strength I'm going to kick someone in the ass if he says I am weaker than him.This book could be worth a try for the message it portrays. Rating: 4Not a bad book! Took me forever to read it but it was worth it :) Review to come!

The reason of the story? Or why it exists? Or why what happens in the story happens at all? Ursula Le Guin says in her classic book Dancing at the Edge of the World: Thoughts on Words, women, places, that “In the telling of a story, reason is only a support system It can provide causal connection; it can extrapolate; it can judge what is likely, plausible, possible.”The reason in this story that we are looking for, is why change the word? What is it that changing the word adds to the story? Clearly much as we ow postulate a different world whether the word Ange’el is their name for themselves and whoa, yes, they can have wings! They are superior beings from their nature and thus guide us in our development Or at least they assume they are superior beings.We now come to the idea of a superior being and an angel and the various different interpretations of what they are beginning with ultimate racist superior being to the cuddly angel on your Xmas tree, via some of the most scary characters you have ever met or imagined as they are so rigid in their morals and ideals Wikipedia says that an angel is a supernatural being or spirit found in various religions and mythologies In Zoroastrianism and Abrahamic religions they are often depicted as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits or a guiding influence Other roles of angels include protecting and guiding human beings,I am always concerned about the whole concept superior beings especially ones that live alongside the human race and try to guide us in our behaviour I am a believer that we create our own fate, although we may have many lives in which to do this, and that Karma is important in so many ways Thus it is important that we take responsibility for ourselves and don’t rely on being helped along by any creature however high and mighty, and also that no one person is superior to any other we are all different and everyone has something to contribute that makes them unique and special The contribution, of course, should be positive, but again how are we to judge? Although we know evil when we see it So if there are angels then there are demons? Or devils? Oh dear, what a quagmire we get ourselves into hereBack to the book What I liked was the feminist twists and the strong women an ian tribe with warriors and Queens and healers all women There was also some really good stuff here for teenagers as there are not often good examples of strong women who are changing the world in a format that is accessible to them fantasy fiction.I did like it and would certainly recommend to teenage girls but it just didn’t set my reading sense alerts high enough for me to want to read the next book which, by the way, is only just being written and you can influence the plot if you go to the author’s web page. I received this book as a FirstReads free giveaway.I enjoyed reading this book Jamie's style of writing made it an enjoyable read The chapters aren't very long and each is broken into meaningful subsections The author has created an interesting explanation for the sinking of Atlantis and the experiences of the inhabitants For a first book I think Jamie has done an excellent job and may have an exciting future writing books.Having said all that, it was obvious from the beginning that the author had an agenda when she wrote the book I'm not sure who the intended audience is but I did find the book overly preachy at times about the rights of individuals The author would have better served by following the advice given to the main character by many of the others Lead by example and don't worry about explaining everything to everybody. (I received a copy from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review)This is a story about a hidden ancient civilisation Ahe'ey with a race of super strength humans with a lifespan ofthan 200 years Morgan leads an organisation committed to helping young girls and women and she found herself being drawn to Gabriel, who is an Ange'el from Ahe'ey The royal rulers of Ahe'ey have been tasked with protecting their royal bloodline by intermarriage between cousins Gabriel wants to bring about reform, with their help of his cousin Sky and several other leaders of Ahe'ey Overall this was an interesting read, but the writing style used is very different from other books I've read so it does require some getting used to.The story was interesting enough to get me going and even though some parts were a bit slow, I managed to keep going and I did enjoy it. I received this book as a Goodreads winner I really enjoyed this fantasy novel with a strong equality theme and some romance for good measure The author paints a vivid picture of the beautiful setting is the story Would love to read the next installment if/when it comes out. &Free Epub ☠ Ange'el ☠ “Sky stood up, followed him, and placed her sword on his neck ‘Do it Sky!
