Book Review for: The Genesis of Seven (The Empyrean Trilogy, #1) by Sara M. Schaller

I loved the creative mind of the author of The Genesis of Seven. I loved how she twisted the stories we used to hear in our childhood and made it so interesting for us. I especially loved the description of hell – yes, you read that right. It sounded cruel, horrifying and hilarious at the same time.

This story is about Jordan, an orphan who loves to help people. His life was going as normal as it could for him until one day, his world turned upside down and he had no home to go back to, he only had an address, his duffel and a strange bag his guardian had given him before commanding him to run away from the mysterious men who were following him.

After dodging and running away from the mysterious men who were after him and the strange bag his guardian had told him to take care of, he finally reached the address. The address that his guardian had ordered him to get to was a penthouse in New York that belonged to the archangel Gabriel.

I think you can already tell this story promises a lot of adventures.

However, this book has been the toughest one for me to review this year, because as much as I loved many chapters in this story, there were still a few chapters I couldn’t love. Like, as I read, I felt like all the interesting parts of the book were kept aside for the next book, and 70 percent of the book revolved around travelling and finding the seven archangels to help them. Jordan, the main character of this book asked many questions to the Archangels and they all answered his questions with intricate details which, sadly, I just couldn’t understand most of the time.

Apart from these, the book ended with a promise to entertain us thoroughly in the next book, and I believe it. Almost all the first books in a series are elaborated so you can get comfortable with the characters and the plot after you get into the next book – and I am guessing it is the reason why this book was written elaborately. I am looking forward into reading the next book as soon as it comes out. 3/5 stars.
