A review of THE ANGEL ALEJANDRO at Anthony Avina’s:

Alejandro

“Sin and mankind’s misconceptions about the world at large play major themes in the supernatural thriller The Angel Alejandro by Alistair Cross. Exploring the world of temptations and the battle everyone faces within themselves when they give into their darkest desires, this incredible story showcases the ruthlessness that can reside in the best of us, and the strength it takes to push temptation aside to do what is right.

The first thing that grabbed me about this story was how similar the premise is to one of my favorite Stephen King stories, Needful Things. A charming salesman brings chaos and destruction to a small town, and must be battled by the forces of good within that very town. However this story is unique in that the overpowering threat of Gremory Jones and his followers is evenly matched by a powerful force for good working to help those few souls who see the cracks forming amongst the townspeople. The mysteries of the town’s descent, the arrival of Gremory Jones and the identity of Alejandro come colliding in the final moments of the book in a vicious and bloody battle between good and evil, and the small town of Prominence threatens to be destroyed forever by its own greed and sin.

The story and characters were very well drawn out throughout this story. Combining the best elements of authors like Stephen King and Dean Koontz, Alistair Cross showcases a unique talent for bringing to life the complex differences between people and showcase how supernatural or extraordinary events are handled by ordinary people. The characters are very relatable and the story itself flows smoothly, setting up the arch slowly and then zig-zagging at lightning speed as the action begins and the town begins to tear itself apart. The grammar was spot on and the imagery throughout the story is vivid, painting a picture that can easily be played across the recesses of the mind like a movie on a projector screen.

Overall this was a wonderful read. It had twists, shocking deaths and a fantastic ending that leaves the story for some characters open and brings a dramatic conclusion for others. This story highlights the incredible storytelling abilities of Alistair Cross, and he proves that he is one of the growing voices in the supernatural thriller genre.
