“Hear the Crickets” was not the atypical story about angels. It was an imaginative, fresh take which had me thinking about the whole genre of angel mythology. I loved how Sheldon interweaved references like the Book of Enoch into her story. I have read other books which mentioned this fabled doctrine, but this was the first time I read about Azazel’s role. Very interesting to say the least.
Sheldon’s characters were well developed and very enjoyable. My favorites were Skyye and Dorian. I immediately felt sorry for Skyye. Imagine being around for three hundred years and not being close to anyone—what a lonely existence. But Skyye was not a character to pity. She was strong and willing to stand up to a challenge. Her biggest challenge was not the role she needed to play in fulfilling a prophecy. Skyye had to learn to allow others close to her, really close to her. Thankfully, Dorian was the type of being which did not give up. He believed in her abilities from the very beginning and helped her grow as a “person”.
Sheldon’s handling of the fight scenes was fantastic. She used just the right amount of detailing to help a reader imagine the scene without it being overly graphic. There was only one weapon I needed to Google in order to get a vivid picture in my mind.
I loved how “Hear the Crickets” ended. Yes, it had me wondering what would happen next. But I was so glad Skyye experienced the outcome the way it was written. Although I’m thinking she has a lot more to endure before it is all over, at least she will know a little happiness.
I highly recommend BJ Sheldon’s “Hear the Crickets” for anyone. It is a creative read, full of hope and promise.
Until one day, strangers show up and everything changes.
Now, she'll need to embrace her strength and face the most intense battle of her life. All to save the world... a world's she's been avoiding.
I love a unique paranormal, and I hadn't read anything like this one. But at the end of the day, what makes a book truly memorable for me is the emotional connection. Skyy dug her way into my heart. I understood intimately, thanks to awesome character development, why she wanted to end it. But I desperately wanted for her to find her place and someone to love her.
It's not often I need kleenex for a paranormal read, but I did. Take my advice: have tissues nearby. Even with all the action, there are some rich emotional scenes between various characters who are facing possible death while yearning for human connection... for something to make it all worthwhile.
I can't say enough about the beauty of this book... in its uniqueness, its emotional intensity, and its fearlessness. A real winner.
Note: I worked on early edits on this book through Indie Books Gone Wild. A positive review was not requested or guaranteed; the opinions expressed are my own.
I loved this book from the start and wasn't ready for it to end... And the last words of this book made me ready for book two!
