In the Shadow of Angels by Donnie J Burgess

I was given a copy of this book courtesy of This is a Crime/Thriller novel written by Donnie J Burgess, this is his first novel.

In the Shadow of Angels was a pretty good book. It was told from several of the characters perspectives, giving insight into their minds and it gave off a very great amount of dramatic irony. To the point that it was humorous. Check out my review here and let me know what you think!!!

I rated this book a 3 out of 4 stars!

Happy Reading!!

  1. Thank you for taking the time to review In the Shadow of Angels. As a first time author, getting this into the hands of objective reviewers has been rather difficult. I am pleased to see that you did in fact enjoy it.

    In regards to the humor, I had to dial that back constantly. There were several scenes (the garage confrontation and the scene with Brent and Beth in the car jump immediately to mind) that I had to scrap and rewrite a number of times because I kept letting it get too humorous. That didn’t mesh well with the tone of the story. I’d like to think that I left in just enough to keep the reader from focusing too much on the fact that they are rooting for people who are doing very bad things.

    1. It was not a problem at all. I really did enjoy it. It was refreshing because you don’t see a lot of books in any genre that are like that.
      Now as for the humor. I thought it was perfect, you could feel it and it obviously did it’s job because I personally liked the characters that were doing very bad things, Beth was my favorite.
