Blog Tour Review- Apocalypse of Angels: Seeing Angels

Title: Apocalypse of Angels 
Author: Harmony Lawson
Genre: Young Adult
Rating: 4/5
Tour Host: Lady Amber's Tours

Camille Harper, about to finish high school, can see angels all around her. They appear to watch her. She has been able to see angels from birth, and while she is amused by this ability, she just wants a normal life with friends, family, and good times. Why can she see angels? She doesn't know, but she believes the knowledge will change everything. Then she witnesses a confrontation between a beautiful angel and a dark winged creature. The strange event will signal the end of normal life. 

Did the strange beings know she could see them?

Her friends want her to sneak out to an abandoned house for parties, but her instincts scream “NO!” Something is not right about the place. The hip new guy in school, Earl, wants to date, but she is afraid he will disturb her circle of friends, and there is something not right about him. Her parents aren’t doing well together. And whatever strange plot is developing, her sister may be in the middle.

Now, for the first time, Camille Harper is interacting with angels face to face. This is incredible, but when Jason Waters enters her life, she gets more than she bargained for. Her strange ability complicates life on a whole new level. Camille and Jason enter an exciting but forbidden relationship.

Strange beings present danger. What’s a Nephilim? What are fallen angels up to?

Jason believes something is strange with Earl, but Jason is hiding things from Camille as well. Which one is right for her? Are they both trying to possess her for supernatural reasons?

Camille just wants to make it through the year and graduate from high school, but changes are leading up to some apocalyptic event.

Can Camille continue Seeing Angels without her life going to Hell?

My Review
 *I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
 I really thought hard about this rating, I felt like at one point I could have given it a three, and that for me because I sort of felt like the obvious was dragged out a bit, but when I looked at the overall picture this book really was an enjoyable read.
  I liked Harmony I found her down to earth, I thought it was neat how at peace she was with being able to see Angels, it gave her a certain quality that also made me feel at ease. I liked her instinct especially when it came to Earl, he seemed fishy right away and I'm glad she caught on. Jason seemed like a sweetheart and I would be happy to have him in my corner any day. I hope Harmony and Jason can find a way to be with each other I think they deserve it. I want to know more about Sam and Mya I hope they have a bigger part in book 2.
   Having Harmony aware of what Jason was was a neat change but also I felt it made it drag on, since she was aware and I was aware I just wanted them to get it over with and talk about it. Once the secrets were out I found things picked up, and excitement and drama followed. With all the revelations at the end I am very interested to see what will happen next, this story of good vs evil was different in a few ways and I want to know what else is in store. I am particularly curious about the Nephilium it seems to be a large factor and I can't wait to see were it goes from here. I believe this was a good first book and things can only get better from here.
