by Sabrina Benulis
Harper Collins, $22.99, 385 pp
Release Date: December 27, 2011

Archon is the debut novel of the author and appears to be the beginning of The Books of Raziel.'

For years Angela Mathers has been haunted by dreams of a seductive angel. Newly released from a mental institution, she enrolls in Westwood academy, the Vatican 's exclusive University seeking peace and normalcy.

But Angela isn't normal. She is a blood head, the possible fulfillment of a terrifying prophesy. Those blessed with mystical powers hold a special place in the Academy. One of them is the Archon, a human reincarnation of Razeil. And when it arises, it will rule the supernatural universe.

She holds the key to heaven and hell. Both will stop at nothing to possess her.

In a publishing world filled with apocalyptic visions, Archon stands out with its multitude of characters achieving reality, and sympathy for flawed characters that are both human and supernatural, weak and powerful. The heroic action is plentiful.

Benulis has created a dazzlingly imaginative tale in a world filled with humans, angels, demons and those in between who battle for survival. I look forward to future novels and appropriate awards. ~~ Pam Allan
