Reviewed by Sarah Lowry for Readers' Favorite

In A Perpetual Mimicry by K.P. Ambroziak, Ani, a Fire Angel, is banished to earth where he must inhabit a mortal body. Gone are his beautiful wings and the star he called home. Upon arriving unceremoniously on earth and into a decaying body, Ani is fortunate that Simon, another banished Fire Angel, saves him and instructs him on how to survive in the mortal world. Simon and Ani become close, and Simon takes Ani on a journey through time and space to gain wings again. Through the journey, Ani meets a woman whose soul he can’t bear to be without. When Ani loses her, he embarks on a journey where he discovers how connected he is to his oval-faced love and to Simon — and the true reason for his banishment to earth.

I did not want A Perpetual Mimicry to end! K.P. Ambroziak has created a fascinating world of banished angels living amongst humans. The prose is poetic, and I was instantly drawn into the story by K.P.’s vivid imagery. Ani, who has never inhabited a human body before, must learn to understand what human emotions are, and the author has done a fantastic job of describing emotions and physical sensations from the point of view of a creature who had never experienced such things. The ending has a twist that took me entirely by surprise. A Perpetual Mimicry is a beautifully written story that haunted me for days after I read it. The storyline is unusual and the writing is excellent. I highly recommend it, and I can’t wait to get my hands on more of this author’s work.
