Haven't read them, as it looks to be some young-adult, supernatural fantasy aimed at girls having to do with angels.

However, the author is this British chick with whom I had a few classes at LSU in the early 2000s. I imagine she was on an exchange program or something.

Had to get to the last comment before I remembered the author's name. Ernest Gaines. Thank you.


"A Lesson Before Dying" by Ernest Gaines was required reading for us in High School. I remember really enjoying it. Just looked it up, since it has been a while, and apparently there is an HBO adaptation of the book that won an Emmy Award.

quote:

And, I join in those above who recommended Anne Rice. She can be inconsistent but when she is on (particularly in the first two or three Vampire books) her writing transcends genre and is as good as any.



As much as I love her vampire chronicles, her Mayfair writings are brutally vivid. And far more indicative of high society New Orleans than people realize. Not the occult aspect mind you (though it is present), but the attitudes and wealth located behind those high hedges.

If you don't mind the homosexual nature of her son's books, Christopher rice is equally gifted.
