Looks of an Angel: Review

Looks of an Angel

Looks of an Angel
Author: Lauren Elizabeth
Publisher: Dog Ear Publishing
Pages: 148


… The Siren went off, the one for which they have trained us all our lives. Which meant… Invaders! I flipped around, breaking the number one rule—don’t hesitate—to see a hovership coming towards our planet…

When Aly’s home planet Pluto is invaded, everything she’s ever worked for is put on the line. In the process of saving her not-so-much friend Matt, Aly is captured. Taken by the Neptwainians to their home planet. She will have to fight to stay alive as they put her through a series of life-threatening tests, changing her, morphing her into a different being. Was Aly picked at random or had someone been stalking her? (Goodreads)

My Thoughts:

Aly and her family live on Pluto and the planet is invaded. Aly and her friend Matt are captured and they are put through tests that change them into different beings. Aly doesn't even look like the same girl, her hair and eye color are different, she is taller, bigger, and stronger, and she now has wings. They force her to fight to the death against other experiments like her. Are these people just using her for their own personal entertainment?

This book was written by an 18 year old high school senior. It was compelling and very well written. I think Lauren Elizabeth has a bright future ahead of her as an author and I hope she continues with it. This book was definitely different from the other books out there right now. I don't want to give away too much so I don't spoil it for anyone just in case they want to read it. It left me wanting to know more so I am hoping that there's a second book.

*I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.




  1. I find it interesting that so many teenagers are starting to write books. I wish more were as serious about writing at that age. I look forward to reading more from the new generation of authors. Thanks for sharing! I look forward to visiting your blog again.
