"I reviewed Dark Hope by Monica McGurk. This is the first book in the Archangels Prophesy series.
Dark Hope was interesting and I enjoyed reading it. I loved the characters and there were a lot of twists in the plot so it never got boring. One thing I didn’t like about it though is there were a lot of references to Christianity and the bible, so I feel I would have understood the plot and maybe even the characters in more depth if I was Christian.
I think the book is definitely more of a girl’s book and is probably best for middle school kids. This book is book one in a trilogy. I would read the other books.
You can read more about Dark Angel at the author's website here.
One thing I like about this author is that she's trying to help stop human trafficking (it's mentioned in the book), and a portion of her book sales money will go to help organizations doing this. I am also raising money to help stop human trafficking. For my Bat Mitzvah project, I have been raising money to free child slaves in Ghana through an organization called Breaking the Chain Through Education. You can read more about my project and the organization here. Through sales of my hand-made jewelry, I've already raised about $3,000, which was matched dollar-for-dollar by my dad's employer. I am continuing to sell my jewelry, with all proceeds going to end child slavery in Ghana. I like that Monica McGurk and I are interested in the same cause!"
