Review: Glory by Devin O Branagan
Monday, 27 February 2012
Thank you to author Devin O Branagan for letting me organise her blog tour for Glory and sending me a copy for review!
Glory was a quick, exciting book that I liked instantly. It took me just a few days to read and I really liked the concept of the story. Once I finished reading it I wanted more! The main protagonist in Glory is seventeen year old Glory Templeton who's blood holds the cure to a deadly pandemic plague and embarks on a journey to save humanity.Glory is a great female protagonist and even though she is in danger from human and super natural beings she still tries to stay strong and complete her mission. She cares about the rest of humanity, not just herself.
One of the great points about Glory by Devin O Branagan is that on Glory's quest she is joined by three supernatural guardians. Kind, independent, pretty, young witch Kaia, good-looking cowboy vampire, Zane and handsomely dark and mysterious angel, Dominic. Along the way we get to know about how each character ticks and how they became who they are all.
Once again, like many YA books, there is a love triangle between Glory, vampire Zane and angel Dominic. I really like love triangles and I really liked seeing how different Glory was with each guy. Passionate and overwhelming with Zane and an intense, caring love for Dominic. However one thing I wasnt sure about was how quickly and intense each relationship got but I suppose when I think about it I can understand the intensity in the situation they all found themselves.
Finally how can we forget about Hallie, Glory's Australian Shepard dog. She is her faithful companion the whole way though the story which was great to see.
Overall I really enjoyed Glory. It has a great storyline, great characters and was a great read. I can't wait for the next book in the series!
