An Alisa Review: Angels and Man-Beasts by T.L. West


Rating:  3 stars out of 5


Zachary is an ordinary young gay man. He works for his father, has a crush on his straight roommate, and likes to procrastinate.


While visiting his aunt’s old cabin, he finds a wounded man, and the door to safety is forever closed. At first, Zachary doesn’t know what to make of the handsome stranger dressed as a knight, but he feels a connection with him.


Zachary’s life is turned upside down as his eyes are opened to the supernatural world. Not only must he survive dangerous man-beasts, but he is also forced to make sense of what it means to fall for an angel, and involve himself in a war between the Gods.


This was an interesting story, however I felt like a lot of explanations were missing from the background of the story.  Barachiel is trying to stop one of his own from starting a new war and killing innocents.  By chance Zachary helps to care for him when he is injured but he quickly leaves to complete his mission.


While I liked the fast paced story I just couldn’t get over the things that didn’t add up.  The man-beasts knew what Zachary was but the angels didn’t and apparently Zachary’s roommate who obviously knows about these things knows what it means too.  The ending of the story makes me hope that there will be more in the future and hopefully that will give the information that was missing.


Cover art by Natasha Snow is eye catching and works well for this story.
