"A story about overcoming the darkness of evil and finding light a new"
This is a story that will keep the reader transported right to its climax and until the last page is turned. It is a story like no other that I have read. Usually stories of this type are very violent and cruel. But A. J. Behul has created just the right blend of good and evil and even the people who are considered dangerous have redeeming qualities at the end of the day.
There is so much negative around Aline. There is organized crime, violence, and lawlessness. Then there is the fluctuating price of gold. The situation around her is so unpredictable and it threatens to destroy the company and all the profit margins it enjoyed before.
Then there are the employee executions, kidnappings, extortions, and fraud everywhere she turns. It is a climate where no one can trust anyone and everyone appears suspicious and out of line.
If this isn’t bad enough there is the case of the forty-three missing students on the doorstep of one of the mines. No one knows where they got to and the whole company is sent into disarray.
Aline finds herself between maintaining her allegiance to the company and organized crime. She no longer knows what is right and wrong and she seems to be doing things that are truly out of character, transforming her from the holding of the Seraphim to the order of the Angelorum Lapsus.
Aline feels uncomfortable and has no idea where to turn. This can feel very disconcerting and we can all relate to this state of mind because most of us have experienced these types of feelings and clashes within ourselves from time to time. Can Aline overcome the darkness of evil and find light again or will she be banished to the Abyss forever?
The book ends on a positive note with a take on good and evil which I absolutely loved! A. J. Behul says that “there is light in the darkness just as there is darkness in the light.” Perhaps there is a light at the end of any tunnel of corruption and violence.
