My Review: The Angel Alejandro by Alistair Cross

Hi everyone,

Today, I'm reviewing The Angel Alejandro by Alistair Cross. If you'd liked to find out a little more about the author and his work before you read below, check out my interview with Mr. Cross from back in April. 

And now without further ado...

My Review :)

The premise seems one you may have read or seen before. 
A young woman named Madison almost dies. Alejandro, a somewhat seemingly ordinary man, saves her life.  
In all honesty, that is what I’d thought I’d get when I first opened this book.
Except Alejandro has deep secrets and yawning holes in his past; cavities that he is desperate to fill. 
As such, this isn’t the last time he and Madison meet.

And that, personally, is where the intrigue began.

With the paintbrush of horror, the author makes use of the intricate themes to tell a story of angels and demons, doing so by means of atypical paranormal and mysterious elements.
Furthermore, the two main characters—Madison and Alejandro—and others are interwoven in their world’s state of affairs.  
Despite its shown traits in the area of fantasy, it seemed real. 
For instance, one scene depicts a crowd of overly “righteous” and possessed people attacking a young shoplifter and beating him bloody over a pack of stolen gum from the local grocery store; an action for which they see nothing wrong. 


Due to the various situations and characters within the story, it did seem as if the connected scenes jumped from one space to another so it took some time to realize which tales were connected. 
In spite of this, it didn’t take long to catch the links and relationships. Not to mention, the character development is sensational. 
Both minor and major characters are those that you’ve seen in the real world and, as those in the real world, have many a layer to explore. 


I rate this 4 out of 5 stars. 

The Angel Alejandro is a superb, graphic story of good and evil during which Cross does not pull any punches. It’s not for the faint of heart, but you will not regret reading it.

Get it The Angel Alejandro on Amazon!
