    I read this before it had a cover and without knowing anything except the author had asked if anyone was willing to read it and review it as part of her blog tour for the launch I had no idea how it was being marketed but I would have described it as a young adult urban fantasy I later found out it is New Adult Horror Same thing right? My favorite aspect was how real the characters are portrayed The main character Nina starts out as a teen but for the majority of the story is a young woman She kisses boys without commitments she experiences the heat of passion when she is attracted to someone than once runs away when things get tough fights with her parents and is selfish and self centered at times She was a realistic breath of fresh air And then to my surprise the evil antagonist chasing after our heroin is actually the devil As a very non religious person I expected to be annoyed with this turn of events but it was so well written I instead found myself sucked in and unable to put it down I love the way Angela took age old themes and gave them new life She expertly weaves Native American legends with all the religions of the ages resulting in a character I both understood and empathized with – even as he plotted to destroy mankind The book has many elements of fantasy since worlds beyond our own are brought to life And even though one of the main characters is Lucifer himself the themes are nothing like you would expect I highly recommend it although I must disclose it does have violence and some sexuality for those of you who might have sensitivities I would give it a PG 13 euivalent ratingDisclaimer I was given an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review

    350 Stars I was given a copy of the book by the author to read I would consider her a friend and she has been a great help to our library I debated on how to handle this review I want to be fair but in my usual style critical as well SO here it iswe will see if it gets me unfriended on facebook Let's start with the good thingsIt is well written For an unknown author without a national publisher this is a really well written book The descriptions are good and my senses were awaken to the descriptions I recall a paragraph about Jenny and the scent of her lotion It was really descriptive At times almost too descriptive I didn't spot any grammatical errors well editedI liked the use of Story of Timpac and Unogos and the local Wasatch County Utah Native American legend of Timpanogosa story I have heard for years I also like that it made me think It made me do a little research on my own to understand some words and concepts I don't think it get it all or understand it allI like that I wanted to finish itfor not being my genre I wanted to see where it was going It didn't sit on a shelf forever I wanted a resolutionWhat I didn't like This is not my genre at all not even a little bit Things in my head have to be explained with logic and reason My brother a month or so ago told me that is how our family iswe like realistic fiction So Fantasy is really hard for me It isn't fun I am a historical Fiction or realistic Fiction FanWhen I was told this was new adult horror I was worried I didn't find this horror I would classify it as Fantasy When I think of Horror I think of Stephen King with Clowns stuffing bodies under a porch I don't like Stephen King's Books eitherbut this book didn't scare me at allI have a strong belief understanding testimony if you will of Satan Lucifer or in the story SinaufSinclairHaving a devil incarnate in the story was interesting and the talk about the Fall of Adam and Archangel Raphael and some Biblical Stuff was interesting I know who Satan is what he does I have experiences his darkness through no fault of my own I know he is real and he is a dirt bagHowever this SinaufSinclairLucifer falls so short of my understanding and knowledge of Lucifer's role and mission of evil sinister conniving brilliant intelligent diabolical counterfeiting of things God being I don't buy him as Satan Satan to me much much than described than portrayed in this book I could buy Sinauf as a Evil being a creep a Satan wannabe but he doesn't even come close to my perception of the depth and evil that is Satan I don't buy that Nina and her Hopi Race were sired from Gods and fell to earth and that it passed down the female line This whole Nephilim concept doesn't work for meI believe that I am a literal 'daughter of God' but I don't believe that some God mated with an earthling and poof there is the Hopi People I do believe Native Americans have special insight connection to the Earth and God but not the way this is described I also don't understand who Nina is I don't understand why she experiences her parents death before they die I don't understand why she experiences Jenny's Death the Demonic influence of Sinauf? I don't know Having said the good and bad someone who is into this genre is probably going to REALLY R E A L L Y love it and can't wait for other 2 books in the series I give it a like it not sure I would rush to read the other books butoverall I didn't hate it and for me that is saying something Angela don't hate me I would love to sit down with you and maybe get some insight and clarifications Thanks for the fun

    “Copper Descent” is the tale of Nina Douglas a Native American girl with a secret She walks into the dream world even though her mother forbids it Nina and her family are the last of their tribe their village destroyed by Sinuf a dark god from before the beginning of time Nina's mother is afraid that Sinuf will find Nina in the dream world and take control of her turning her mysterious gifts into something dark and sinister One night the dream world shows Nina a terrible vision of the future Afraid her mother will be angry with her for walking into the dream behind her back Nina keeps the vision to herself Her decision ends up costing her dearly and turning her world upside down Guilt forces her to make a difficult choice sacrificing a part of herself forever At last she is safe from the dark wolf of her dreams or so she thought I thoroughly enjoyed this book It's been a while since a book has really impressed me especially a debut novel by a new author This is the case with “Copper Descent” Right away you’re drawn into the story and your attention is held by the author’s creative attention to detail She has a talent for blending the modern world and realistic settings with Native American folklore in a way that makes everything seem plausible The pacing is great in this book I never once found myself getting bored or wanting to skip ahead As is the case with most books the best character is the Villain In “Copper Descent” Angela gives us Sinuf an interesting twist on the classic image of Lucifer with roots in both christen mythology and Native American lore The effect is an antagonist that is sexy deadly haunting and somehow likable in a bad boy kind of wayThe kind of guy that lures women with tendencies towards fixer uppers I found myself hoping that maybe Nina could turn this cold hearted serpent around so that perhaps he could redeem himself in the end At first I found that I didn't really like Nate Nina's love interest He came off very immature and just plain rude at first Later on when he came back into the story he seemed to have grown up some and turned into my second favorite character The story was never predictable and kept you guessing My only complaints are these The action seemed a bit choppy in the last couple chapters This wouldn't be a big deal as most modern books seem to be written this way except that this book was not up until the end It's not really noticeable except in two spots where it took me out of the story Perhaps in the excitement of wrapping up the book these moments were rushed a bit to render the scenes a little confusing instead of having the natural flow the rest of the book had Secondly the ending wasn't what I was hoping for There was a bit of a Wizard of Oz ending to it You had the power within you all along Although it was well written and made perfect sense with the book the final fight seemed to easily won for my taste and a was little anti climatic My last issue with the book is that I never fell in love with the leading lady Nina She was well written and had complexity to her and had some good dialogue and great hero moments but for some reason I never really became invested in her I don't think this is at all the author’s fault just for some reason she just didn't resonate with me Despite these minor flaws I still found “Copper Descent” to be a wildly creative well written and exciting read I give it five stars I would recommend it to anyone with a love for Urban Fantasy Horror and an interest in Religious Mythology and Native American Folklore

    The exuisite magnetism of evil and its many faces; the flawed confusion and missteps of purity and the blurry teeter totter where the two fall in and out of balance it is an age old clash vividly portrayed in this highly creative and powerfully written novel by Angela Hartley Sinclair is everything a woman could want riveting in his male beauty captivating with eyes that overpower will desire intent and choice electric in his touch fascinating charismatic and oh so charming But his hideous truth leaks out in flashes of filth and horror so brief so fleeting that they may not have even beenFacing off with this inexorable force is a naïve young woman given to lousy choices and deeply programmed by her mother for failure Nina is content in a warm and loving relationship where a couple can eat pizza and watch movies and just not really up for an encounter with the insatiable while the future of the world hangs in the balanceThe story is as old as humanity itself Yet Hartley approaches it with a freshness and grace that turns the topic on its ear Through dreams and nightmares vastly separated worlds and varied epochs within eternity a timeless fuzziness envelopes the story This indistinctness artfully backlights the essential nature of the struggle Hartley’s writing is intense and absorbing The pace is unrelenting and the reader has no time for recovery as the book crashes headlong toward the ultimate point of encounter This fantasy novel is for the reader who like the characters harbors no peace until the future of the world is safe

    Copper Descent is a thrilling new take on creation stories Angela Hartley has a wonderful voice and I found myself plunged heart first into Nina's world Nina a Native American descended from the divine resonated with me in many ways Her struggles and difficult choices defined the delicate—yet strong—Nina as an authentic heroine Her deep sense of self duty and morality however took Nina's character to the next level for me She was well written and is not easily forgotten The story is set in Midway UT where I actually live So I truly enjoyed experiencing a place I know and love through a new and magical lens The author's multi level world building was an exciting surprise I loved the Native American details elements of mythology and biblical roots of the story Angela has taken a wealth of folklore and history and distilled it down into something uniue and enthralling The fantasy and horror elements should be noted as well Sinclair was a chilling yet enticing antagonist And the sweet and complex relationship between Nina and Nate the hometown love interest with an unexpected backstory left me with the hollow ache for that only a good love story can impart when the last page has been turned I would highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys local folklore biblical retellings and mythology all set against beautifully written scenes infused with love and honor I cannot WAIT for the next installment

    Nina Douglass cannot understand the cryptic reasons why her mother does not seem to love her but that uestion goes unanswered after her parents are both killed in a car crash and Nina flees with her aunt to California Three years later she returns to the scene of her parents' death and also the place of her first love only to have everything she escaped rekindled Lucifer finds her there a powerful and seductive being who always gets what he wants and he wants the copper child Struggling with her self worth her feelings of guilt over her parents deaths and the persistent and genuine attentions of her first love Nate Nina also has to puzzle through the destiny surrounding her very existence or she may end up in Lucifer's power foreverMy favorite part I love the way Hartley describes Eden and the mythology behind Lucifer's attempts to reascend This is an urban version of Paradise Lost with the heavenly beings recreated as very dynamic and interesting characters Recommendation I think that in the end this is of a paranormal romance than a horror story It is New Adult but mature young adults especially girls would LOVE this story I am particularly enad with the mythology associated with Paradise Lost and plan to read the rest of the series as it continues

    Angela is able to take a story about Angels and Devils and weave in Native American Folklore while still keeping you interested in the plot and wondering what will happen next Nina is a young girl then a young woman and finds herself in a world she isn't uite ready for She wants a life that is normal and secure but instead finds herself literally in bed with the devil I found myself thinking of Nina and her struggles even when I was far from the pages Her feelings and thoughts on life are so real and could easily be felt by any woman her same age Angela crafts a world that is easy to imagine and see as you are reading the pages The feel of the devil's fingers is brushing the surface of every page If you like horror or want to try new adult this book is for you

    I received this book from good reads in exchange fo a review There are things to like about this book it's well written with an interesting premise However it suffers from the twilight full disclosure a series is detest and yes I read them all beautiful girl with low self esteem who thinks no one would ever love her trope even though everyone else thinks she's perfect That turned me off early in this book I was hoping for a story that really delved into Native American mythology but instead ended up with a mishmash of Indian and judo christian fantastical allegory Not really my type of book Coupled with a rather shallow story I am disappointed
