Melanie Tomlin was born in Beeston, England. At the age of three her family moved to suburban Melbourne, Australia, where she has lived ever since. When she was twelve her parents bought her a typewriter, and she wrote her first novel that very same year. She still has the typewriter, which is somewhat worse for wear, but that first manuscript is now nothing but a distant memory. Her current writing projects include the fourth and fifth books in the Angel Series. She lives with her son and two dogs in Melbourne, Victoria (Australia).
I am in love. If I thought the first book was awesome, this second instalment is even better. With a great plot and character development, Angel's Curse is definitely a must-read for you guys, paranormal romance and urban fantasy lovers. The plot and twists regarding the usual angel and demon myths might be my favourite thing about this book. Melanie Tomlin had delivered a totally fresh and original re-telling. Although you might not want to delve in if you're extremely religious and cannot handle a few fictional tweaks here and there, but if you're not, go to the nearest bookstore and get a copy of your own right away. The author's amazing writing style had sucked me right into the story. One second I would be cheering on our heroine, Helena, for being so awesome and badass and the next thing I know I am crying my eyes out--not giving away anything here--and then back again. The whole novel is definitely an emotional rollercoaster, in a good way. I can't even say I hated any of the characters here even the bad guys, oh well except Raphael. - The Four Eyed Cat Reviews This stunning novel packed with bloody action and full of unexpected scenes will just take you on an emotional roller coaster ride. Angel's Curse is the second installment on the Angel Series written by Melanie Tomlin. The rush in my blood was as fast as the action that had just happened. I cannot still forget how cool Helena is and how she really kicked those stuns! When something bad happened to Danny, all I wanted to do is to scream, to curse, and/or to shout some hurtful words just to get rid of this pain that escaped out of my heart. This is so heartbreaking! It is devastatingly painful! It made me cry and cry until I stopped reading it for a while so I can breathe. Whenever I continue reading it, my tears would just fall on my cheeks because I can still feel the pain. It is liked my heart was ripped out of my body and it was crushed into ashes. That's how good the narration of this book is. Even if you don't want to, you'll get attached to the characters as if you are them. I loved how playful yet bad-ass looking is Helena here. She really makes me want to cheer her every time she fights. I can also feel how painful it is for her to lose someone she really loved and how enrage she is to have some revenge. - Book Huntress' World
