By Cynthia Ayala

The votes are in! I would like to thank everyone who voted to make this post possible. If you’re book didn’t win, remember to vote and share a lot for your choice next month.

Here we have Traitors Angel, which will get a featured book review soonish. I say soonish because my to-read shelf is super long and depending when I get this book, well, then I will have to move this book up, shift things around, and then read it and write the review. I promise I will have it up in the next few months. I know, I am really behind, but the reviews are coming, I promise you that.

Here is the synopsis of the book courtesy of Goodreads and if you beat me to it, let me know how you like it. The more people tell me how good or bad it is will determine just how fast I will get to it.

Traitor Angels

By Anne Blankman

“Six years have passed since England’s King Charles II returned from exile to reclaim the throne, ushering in a new era of stability for his subjects.

Except for Elizabeth Milton. The daughter of notorious poet John Milton, Elizabeth has never known her place in this shifting world—except by her father’s side. By day she helps transcribe his latest masterpiece, the epic poem Paradise Lost, and by night she learns languages and sword fighting. Although she does not dare object, she suspects that he’s training her for a mission whose purpose she cannot fathom.

Until one night the reason becomes clear: the king’s man arrive at her family’s country home to arrest her father. Determined to save him, Elizabeth follows his one cryptic clue and journeys to Oxford, accompanied by her father’s mysterious young houseguest, Antonio Vivani, a darkly handsome Italian scientist who surprises her at every turn. Funny, brilliant, and passionate, Antonio seems just as determined to protect her father as she is—but can she trust him with her heart?

When the two discover that Milton has planted an explosive secret in the half-finished Paradise Lost—a secret the king and his aristocratic supporters are desperate to conceal—Elizabeth is faced with a devastating choice: cling to the shelter of her old life or risk cracking the code, unleashing a secret that could save her father…and tear apart the very fabric of society.”
