A brilliant, information-PACKED tome related to all things Angels. Written in a standard sort of dictionary format, names are alphebetized for easy and quick reference. Additionally, each name is explained with a history, story, and/or relevant relationships: familial or otherwise. Each page in this 386-page book includes anywhere between one and approximately 12 different entries on angels and people/terms related to the angels. One of the shining points of this book, in my opinion, is the cross-reference value (ie "Angel of Proclamation" has an entry under "A"s, yet "Gabriel" also has its own entry; as do "Azkariel" and "Ak(h)-raziel".) This makes it much less confusing to a person using this book for reference, since much of angel lore has historically been very confused on certain points.

This book can be read from cover to cover as a series of short stories for the most part, intersperced with shorter (one-to-two sentence) entries related to angels about whom less is known or entries that exist purely for cross-reference purposes (ie "Angel of Proclamation"). There are also a small number of black and white pictures intersperced throughout the text depicting various historically significant angel artwork including descriptions.

A great resource and valuable reference. If you can only own one book on angels, make it this one. Five stars!
