The Blackwell Family Secret by John L. Ferrara

I wrote this review for the LibraryThing Early Review Program.

I am a big fan of Christian myth and lore, especially devil and angel lore. Watching the line blur between faith and fiction has always been something I did with some interest (I am a Christian myself, so understanding the line is a goal of mine). The explorations of those lores were probably the most interesting parts of THE BLACKWELL FAMILY SECRET, though underdeveloped, but unfortunately the main character was a pretty ungrateful and jerky turn off from those parts of the book that were interesting. Teenage-hood aside, I feel like his personality was a disservice to the plot and would have been interested in seeing this book told from the side of the girl sent by the Vatican to protect the main character, Nick.

C: interesting premise and decently fast read; main character makes the rest hard to appreciate
