The most serious one in this novel has to do with Adornetto’s disregard for Biblical teachings, which is indefensible considering that her angels are pretty clearly Catholic. Inexplicably, Bethany and Xavier are allowed to continue their unholy relationship with little resistance from Heavenly forces.

It’s all trilgoy dr Honestly, I think when I read this book, my brain cells died a little bit.
