Book Description:

Mellis, a courageous and resourceful young woman, is kidnapped from the human world and taken to the Space Between by a tribe of faeries called the Penitents. Because of guilt over an ancient sin committed by their angel ancestors against the Maker, the Penitents have cursed themselves with grotesque physical disfigurements. Mellis can help them reunite with the Maker and find their way back to redemption, but she would need to give up the life she’s always known to remain in the Space Between.

As she struggles with this heart-wrenching decision, one of the Penitents, bent on revenge, commits a gruesome attack against the tribe, and they learn he has taken Satan–the Maker’s greatest enemy–as his ally. All in the Space Between are facing grave danger. Will a long-awaited act of vengeance save them?

Susan Rooke builds a rich and fantastical world of angels and demons, monsters, faeries and dragons. Abounding with spirituality and humanity, this faery tale for adults has a cast of vivid characters you won’t soon forget.

My Review

4 stars

Mellis and her dog Orlando are at the park when they are abducted and taken to The Space Between Earth, Heaven, and Hell. Here she meets a people that are very nice yet horribly disfigured. Here she learns that these people have been waiting for her to fulfill a prophecy to help them return to their Maker. The problem is that she has to give up her life on Earth to do so.

At the same time we follow a nameless person that is falling for all of eternity. But they are not alone and as their story progress we learn how they fit into this puzzle that Mellis is in.

This was an interesting story that combines a lot of mythology and religion into it. I admit that I was lost when I first started the story but then things started to fall into place. I did like how everything had its place and fit together.

The story does take a dark turn towards the ending and becomes gory. It didn’t bother me but I could see how it could bother others.

This was a good story and a fresh take on angels and demons. It is the start of a series and one that I am curious to see where it is going from here.

I received The Space Between from iRead Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
