Indie Book of the Week; Angela's Coven by Bruce Jenvey

So it has been a couple of weeks since I have been able to post a new book of the week due to guest posts and blog tours (which are fabulous of course), but it is nice to get back into the groove of things this week and bring you a new indie book of the week and that book this week is Angela's Coven by Bruce Jenvey.

Reggie Sinclair is an aging British rock star living in New York City who has just found out he is terminally ill. He also has a very dark secret: When he was still an undiscovered teenager, he sold his soul to the Devil in exchange for his great fame and success. As his life draws to an end, he prepares to face the inevitable until he stumbles upon a very enchanting, modern-day witch named Angela, and her untraditional coven.

Angela gradually introduces Reggie to her world of old school Witchcraft with its roots in alchemy and ‘natural chemistry’ dating to the Dark Ages. As their relationship grows, they devise a plan to break Reggie’s contract and save his soul.

This is a story of the struggle between good and evil with a cast of characters that ranges from guardian angels to young witches-in-training. Together, they have to come to terms with the uncertainties of love, loss, and life decisions to save Reggie from an unbearable eternity. Here is a plot filled with unexpected twists and surprises to the very last page that will also cast an entirely different light on anything you may have ever considered as faith!

My Thoughts:
I love a great good versus evil love story and this is definitely one of them.

Jenvey has managed to make a great story combining quite a few great aspects to make this story truly interesting. Witches, demons, Knights of the Templar, a rock star, curses, contracts, mystery. You name it, this one just might have it.

This was a very well written story that was pretty fast paced and never left you hanging. It has a lot of twists and turns that I didn't see coming and some truly great characters.

It was a very entertaining and fun read. There was some great humor that helped break up some of the more serious matters and I liked that about it, that no matter what, the author still managed to make this a lighthearted read.

I have heard that this is part of a series and I think it will truly be fun to see where the author goes with it next. Who will be in it and what it will be about this time around.

I would love to see some old faces again and as well as some new ones.

I am giving this one 3.5-4 Stars.

Very well done!!


  1. Ahhh a good vs. evil story sprinkled with humor. Sounds very promising. Another great indie find. I am glad you are getting back into your groove. I hate having to get out of my blog routine, too. Have a great weekend, Ali.
