There are so many things to love about Sean Marshall’s, A Council of Angels. Particularly in today’s climate, this novel is a sweet breath of fresh air. It’s current and feet-on-ground-real, yet it’s other-worldly. You’re somehow in two places at once. It’s about faith and lack of faith. It’s about serving ourselves or serving others. It’s about honest struggles to believe in something or someone bigger than our own egos and agendas.
Marshall’s ability to paint a vibrant scene with details are so good, you are smack-dab in the middle of the story, yourself. There’s a fun chemistry and intrigue between characters, the locales are captivating, it’s just spot-on entertaining and enlightening. The thing I felt from the start was that this was not only a great novel, this is a movie-waiting-to-happen. Start popping the popcorn, get ready to laugh and shed a few tears. Maybe in the process, be a little changed for the better.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I began reading “A Council of Angels”. Out of the box, it’s a different kind of story, one that I didn’t see coming, but I was pleasantly surprised. While it has some familiar themes around GOD, faith, and angels, Sean Marshall’s unique way of presenting them sneaks up on you.
The book is both fun to read and endearing at the same time, and there are SO many great takeaways about life, true love, and service. This read was definitely time well spent, and I’m already looking forward to the next one.
It’s Christmas night and I’m sitting around with my family enjoying the last few hours of my favorite holiday. I just finished this book the other day and it corresponded so nicely with the holiday season. There are a few messages a person can pull from this story. I think it probably depends on what you have going on in your own life at the moment. I think I needed a little reminder about family. (I don’t want to spoil anything so I won’t say any more about that.) This book had some great little twists that I honestly didn’t see coming.
I guarantee that after you finish this book you’ll feel inspired. That could mean inspired to serve others, inspired to let the ones close to you know you love them, inspired to forgive someone who has wronged you or just inspired to book that trip to Europe you keep thinking about! You’ll enjoy this story either way.
