Angels Strange and Beautiful is a work of fiction in the Christian and historical fiction sub-genres and was penned by author Gina Fiametta. The work is intended for the general adult reading audience. In a small-town thriller with some high-stakes thrills, we journey to the New England of yesteryear, where the villagers are terrified by the prospect of a vicious killer stalking through the night. An ensemble cast of characters each finds themselves unburdening their souls under the cover of an eerily beautiful cathedral. What results is a highly engaging and mysterious tale that will keep readers coming back for the next chapter.

Author Gina Fiametta has crafted a totally immersive work of fiction with plenty of unforeseen twists and tense moments to offer readers. I found this work almost torturous in its mystery, keeping readers guessing with just enough information that you could never finish a chapter without thinking about the next. This craftsmanship in pace and plotting is a testament to Fiametta’s skill and is only enriched by the moody, gothic styling of her small town haunts and the gaunt faces of the frightened villagers who populate the novel. Each member of the extended cast of characters has their own relatable story to offer and secrets hiding deep beneath the surface, woven together with intellect and emotion as the story progresses. Overall, I would highly recommend Angels Strange and Beautiful to fans of Christian-themed works of fiction, in-depth and atmospheric historical fiction, and readers who love relatable and inspiring characters.
