Book review:Falter by Haven Cage 

Falter by Haven Cage
ISBN 978099731108

Everyone knows that being 10 is hard enough without the pressures and scariness of living on the streets, but that is just what Nevaeh has been living with for the last 8 years with a man who saved her. She and her “father” have learned to not only to survive, but live in the alleyways and shadows of her city.

She is developing into a young woman and strange things are beginning to happen to her. We’re not talking puberty, but hallucinations. Her father worries, it has to do with the state that he found her in and beats himself up for not getting her checked out sooner.

Neveah and her dad woke one morning looking for a job, but found much more. A restaurant owner took them both in and not only gave them a job but a roof over their head and food in their stomach.

Nevaeh started to feel things awaken in her and change whenever she was around the shop owner. Short time after starting work her dad got sick and died, his death brought a whole new string of questions to her life. She hasn’t only watched him die, but watched something definitely not human suck his soul.

The restaurant owner offered her condolences as he tried to explain what happen and who was. Nevaeh thought it must all be a dream, becuase if he was right, if he was an angle he could have saved her dad’s soul, his life. Now scared and more confused than ever she must choose her path, does she believe god has not forsaken her, but has plans for her or will she side with the devil to save her dad’s soul?

Raves: I absolutely loved this book. Haven did wonders bringing to reality, these magestic creatures of God and her portrayal of what it is like to be the presence of not only angles but God himself is breath taking. I was able to really connect with the depth of all the characters, no mater how small their role may have been.

Rants: There is only one rant I have….it ended on a cliff hanger so I am stuck on the edge of my seat to find out what happens next!

Rating: I do give Falter by Haven Cage a 4 out of 4 stars. This book is a must read for teens and young adults alike.
