Angel's Fury by Bryony Pearce

Every atrocity. Every war. Every act of vengeance. Will come back to haunt her.

One fallen angel walks the earth to bring mankind to its destruction…Turning love into hate, forgiveness into blame, hope into despair. Through the fires of hell he will come to haunt one girl’s dreams.

But what if everything she ever dreamed was true?

Every time Cassie Smith tries to sleep, she is plagued by visions of a death: A little girl called Zillah. A victim of the holocaust. In desperation Cassie is sent for treatment in an old manor house. There she meets other children just like her. Including Seth…Seth who looks so familiar. Her dream becomes nightmare. And then reality.

A word of warning: this book is like no other YA paranormal fantasy I have read recently in that it has no grand love triangle, rectangle or rhombus.

Cassie’s nightmares are destroying her life, every night Zilalh’s short life haunts her dreams, and when she discovers that her dreams are more than just nightmares things get really scary. Brave and resourceful, Cassie is also totally out of her depth she is also in denial about what may be happening to her and wants nothing more than to return to a quiet life free of her night terrors.

Angel’s fury is rich in paranoia, fear and runs along at a frantic pace. From the beginning we get the picture of Cassie as an outsider in her school preferring to be alone rather than to face the pity and scorn of her classmates to a closed environment where she is cloistered with others who know what she is going through her mind, but even her memories may not be as accurate as she remembers!

I was kept guessing at what was going on with the story until the final third of the book when everything started to fall into place. Reading Angel’s Fury was like falling into a fast current in a river and being dragged along.

Angel’s Fury is confusing, creepy and utterly compelling! It may well be the best YA paranormal fantasy book I read this year!
