They lead a closely knit guild of players in weekly dungeon raids and guild versus guild war games also known as war zones.

Sisters use gifts from God to battle Demons

Order of Saint Michael - God's Army is written by Kobie Newton and Narrated by Andrea Emmes. This book takes a behind the veil look at the spiritual world and the working of demons and Angels to influence our daily life. This book is written as a Young Adult story of two sisters who unknowingly are playing an online multiplayer game that is owned by a company essentially run by angels.

This sounds far fetched but within the storyline it works. The game allows the Angels to find Holy Warriors who are human. The sisters have a gift that allows them to see the spirit realm and the story is about their first adventure as members of the Order of Saint Michael.

Andrea Emmes is a christian musician who loves theater and has taken all her God given talents and is using them as a audiobook narrator. The voices of the characters are unique and consistent throughout the audiobook. She brings the story to life and from the beginning you as a listener are transported to the world these sisters live in. I felt real emotion and concern for the characters as I listened.

This is the first book in a series I am excited to continue listening to. I received this book as a gift for an honest review.

Thanks Kobie Newton This Yaya Is A Rock Star

Well thanks very much for writing this book because I am a rock star with my teen Grand, the quintessential gamer girl apparently, or so she tells me. The minute I saw this book I knew it was perfect for her. I was not wrong.

However, I had made a promise to her mother not a reader by the way. That when I gave her the Kindle for the big 13, I would screen all the books before I sent them to her kindle so I agreed.

I was delighted from about page five this is an exciting and fast paced book that in my opinion is perfect for teenagers. I found nothing I would deem offensive or not age appropriate for my now fifteen year old. She was born with my love of books thank heavens I am particular about what she reads. Young and current is good schlock not so much.

This book leans so far from the schlock it is unbelievable I was very surprised the dialogue is on task and moves the story forward with sometimes an alarming rate for an old lady. But my Grand tell me it keeps her attention and then some.

I like the dynamic of the sisters one being a rebel and one being the level headed one, but what really like is all the subtext the author added to the sisters in their dialogue and the subtle relationship that unfolds before us.

It should be noted there are a whole bunch of great moments in this book and I know that if you are looking for that special girl gift this one won’t let you down. My Grand also signed up to be notified of new releases by this author that is how I know it is a grand slam with her too.

I’m giving this a five because what YaYa does not want to hear “you rock Yaya this book is so cool.” Does it get any better than that, I don’t think so. PS this is one of the only audios I have listened to that the narrator is really good too.
