“Seconds before the heart monitor flat-lined, she heard it—or felt it, she still wasn’t sure. It came to her and gave her this message: I can help you Anna Chadwick. I can save your children if you allow it.” — Electric Angel
Review by Lucas McPherson
Anna Chadwick’s cancer-ridden body won’t allow her to carry her unborn twins to term—or at least that’s what she’s been informed by her doctor. Enter one “electric angel” to save the day. Well, maybe, that is. Dent does a ‘miraculous’ job of keeping the reader guessing as to whether the ‘angel’ who steps in to save Anna’s twin boys, by entering her rapidly failing body, is the good sort or not.
Dent has also succeeded in serving up an original plot along with interesting character developments as the story-line unfolds. Though the plot centers on Anna’s boys much of the time, it’s also the story of their father, Zachary, and the tale of his undying love for their mother, Anna. With loyalty and betrayal playing integral roles as well, major depth is added to the main plot. Plus, Dent lures the reader in by not revealing who is truly loyal and who is definitely not loyal till the final denouement. The theme succeeds in maturing at an exciting pace, and there’s a both surprising and heartwarming ending which is not frequently found in a horror read. Highly recommended!
