Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:
In fifteen-year-old Chela Prizeon’s city, alchemy is forbidden and angels hide among the mortal. With a deadly virus ravaging the globe, Chela’s nightmarish memories compels her to experience a past riddled with gloom, and now her brother is infected.
Chela’s only hope is the Caduceans, slayers sworn to protect the last seven Light Keepers and the ancient memories they share. A group led by the sometimes elusive, sometimes infuriating boy who intrigues Chela. But can she trust this boy with the mysterious past, someone who can influence her memories?
With the Caduceans aid, Chela races to defeat her rivals, to unearth dark family secrets, desperate to find a cure…only to discover the glutovirus is far more than a simple disease.
In this haunting debut, KaSonndra Leigh offers an escape into an intriguing new world filled with celestial creatures, fascinating villainy, high-stake choices, and a secret romance, When Copper Suns Fall, is a fresh and original urban fantasy—with a dystopian twist—that will take readers on an unforgettable adventure.

Disclaimers: I received a electronic copy of this novel from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: This is the first novel I've ever read about angels and so I didn't know what to expect. The synopsis sounded intriguing and so I was excited to read it.
What I didn't expect was to be blown away. This was one of those novels that left me captivated from the very first to the very last page. Everything about this novel drew me in. The plot line was masterfully developed and compelling.
This novel was an incredibly interesting read in the fact that it mixed the dystopian and paranormal genres. The mix of these two genres made for one intriguing read.
Leigh's novel was incredibly fast-paced and full of intrigue that left me on my toes for the entire novel. Any novel that can do that is amazing in my book.
Additionally, I absolutely loved the characters. Chela was fascinating to read about and then there was Faris. I absolutely adored Faris. Actually, all of the characters in this novel were masterfully crafted.
I didn't expect this novel to be nearly as good as it was. I can't wait to see what happens in the sequel. This is definitely an author and a series that I'll be keeping my eyes on.
In Summary: An intriguing mix of dystopian and paranormal elements combined with brilliant writing and entertaining characters. Definitely a novel that I recommend.
Warnings/Side-notes: Some minor swearing, but other than that, this novel is clean.
