Don’t Call Me Angel
By Alicia Wright Brewster
After crawling her way out of Hell, Six is ready to cast aside her angel wings and all the responsibilities that come with them. But Earth is not as peaceful as she imagined it. Demons, dark angels, and other hell-beasties escaped before her, and they're not as content as she is to live a quiet life on Earth.
A fellow angel who escaped Hell with her commits a series of soul-murders, destroying human souls so they can't go to the afterlife. Although Six has conflicting feelings about humans, she goes after the other angel to keep their escape a secret from the one she fears most.

Review:

As a YA book i wasn't sure what to expect, i thought to read it with my son and daughter in mind. Personally i thoroughly enjoyed the book, as an adult it was easy reading and as a YA book wasn't very long- i read it in 2 sittings. I feel it was a good introduction to the rest of the series. I wasn't expecting the twist at the end and that has lead me to have questions of how and why. I hope that these will be answered in the next book. I love the dark and light that is explored, and the way the author has taken the story of fallen angels and written it from their point of view. It's not something i had really thought about before.
Thinking of my children, this is the sort of book i can see my daughter really enjoying once she is bigger. My son- although coming to the right age, i can't see him reading it. I feel that this book is geared more for girls.
I want to know what happens next, and would love to read the rest in the series
