Blitz Tour Feature – Angelic Confessions: Character Interview

Angelic ConfessionsJan Marie, author of Angelic Confessions has provided us with a character interview – courtesy of the tour host, Kathryn Jenkins at Dragon Knight Chronicles.

Character Interview: Aye

You were a very confused child and spent much of your childhood sheltered by Father. Did you ever feel true resentment towards him?

I confess I did. I never understood why he sheltered me so much. In the end though I did learn why he did, but I still question why he didn’t have more faith that I could control the darkness inside me.

There was a strong connection between you and Father. Did you ever question his intentions towards you? With how he behaved towards you?

I wondered, but he was Father. It was incomprehensible for me to question him. I loved him dearly.

Aye, you went through a big change after meeting Pio. Did you ever question his motives towards you? Or did you always know he cared?

I didn’t even recognize he cared. I just thought it was his duty to protect me. I was totally oblivious to how he felt…to how I felt. I didn’t want to address those feelings at first.

There was gossip among the angels about you. Did you ever let it truly bother you? Or did the gossip just get brushed off without a care?

I tried to brush it off without a care, but in truth it did bother me. I told no one though, for I often wondered were they right?

Why do you think you had such a draw to the humans?

They were free to roam, and I was not. I think that was part of the allure.

Blitz Tour Feature – Angelic Confessions by Jan Marie

Angelic Confessions

Synopsis:

In a world where the Father created all I was born…an angel. A new breed I was meant to overthrow the children of heaven. To prevent this I was taken, and raised as Father’s own. my memories wiped, the dark beast inside me caged. Memories never stay buried though…

Review

I found Angelic Confessions an intriguing read. The opening is strong; the sense of confusion – a struggle between light and dark.

The majority of the book takes place in Heaven, within a controlled environment; confines set by the Heavenly Father. Aye learns from a young age she is special, and is all but smothered with affection. I found it an entertaining notion that Aye was able to charm her father so thoroughly, especially given the fact he is The Father – an all powerful being. The internal politics were well thought out and resonated with the setting. I would have liked a little more description, especially as we are given a peek into Heaven itself.

This may have been a conscious decision by the author. The first part of the story is told from Aye’s point of view, and her confusion adds to the experience somehow. She lives with an inner turmoil, knowledge of a power she does not fully understand.

The second half is told from Pio’s perspective – an elite guard and Aye’s Watcher. His conflicts are that of a loyal soldier and his protective instincts make him a formidable angel. I really liked the contrast, especially as we are taken back through the events to experience them through a different set of eyes.

I enjoyed the romance, a connection which spans lifetimes. It is a tale of forbidden desire, of dark secrets and a love that must be protected at all costs.
