Blog Tour: Finding Alice by Andrea Digilio

Author: Andrea Digilio
Publisher: Self
Date of Publication: February 2012

Alice is cursed with an intense version of empathy; she runs from a wasted life to start a new one somewhere no one will know her, Hell, Michigan. Alice works at a hole-in-the-wall bar in the middle of nowhere mostly keeping to herself to avoid the overwhelming emotions of those around her. Alice allows her best friend to convince her into taking a few college classes without realizing it would drastically change her life forever. From her first day of class she was hooked on him; his scent, his eyes, the way he talked to her inside her head.

Throughout her struggles she learns about true love, true pain and the truth of her own heritage. Alice must quickly find out who she is because after all everyone else is out to find her. With Angels and Bounty Hunter’s in constant pursuit she finds protection within a group of Fallen Angels. These Fallen Angels vow to do anything to protect her; for it is their belief she will save their kind and all of mankind.

Finding Alice was a pretty good quick read.  I liked Alice's character a lot.  She is pretty strong for someone who has not had a lot of love in her life.  She is more mature than her age. I had to give her a lot of credit for striking out on her own and finding a place to call home.  Even if it is called Hell. I did like her relationship with Cole. He is the one person who can help her figure out who she really is and perhaps help her figure out why feathers keep showing up near her.

While I enjoyed the overall story, I felt a little like I was missing some things in the beginning.  I never felt like the author gave a good enough explanation of Alice's gift of empathy.  If I hadn't read the synopsis, I'm not sure I would have picked up on that.  Also, I would have liked more information about the world that Alice finds herself a part of. I'm hoping that the author expands more on it in future books.

I do recommend this one, especially if you like stories about angels. It is a good debut novel. I look forward to reading more about Alice in her fight for her fellow Fallen Angels.
