Captivating, thrilling and compelling. The story is original and fresh-a definite 'have to read' for new adult urban fantasy fiction readers.
Unlike most espionage thrillers that get bogged down and difficult to follow when written for adults, this author has figured a way out to tell the story without all the, sometimes, over burdensome back ground us adults seem to crave for. That is brilliance.
This is a very well written book, directed to the young adult audience, but that any reader that is looking for spending some hours entertained will enjoy very much this reading. This is a very good start to a trilogy that promises to be very exciting.
...an interesting read with a unique concept. Filled with many unexpected twists and turns it’s about time travel and a mixture of the supernatural (the existence of angels and purgatory—although these were plot points as opposed to major expository), science fiction and a touch of romance. Fans of Fringe would find it most appealing.
Doubt is book 1 of an intriguing and exciting trilogy by Anne-Rae Vasquez. With enjoyable, vibrant young characters fighting a frightening unknown entity in a world that is about to self-destruct, Doubt will definitely appeal to readers of all ages who love sci-fi supernatural thrillers.
Anyone seeking a phenomenal paranormal YA novel that’s wonderfully fresh, innovative and devoid of any clichés or predictability will love DOUBT. Character-driven and action-packed this scintillating story keeps you thoroughly entertained, as the type of story that engulfs you completely!
Doubt by Anne-Rae Vasquez is really slow-paced but then starts to pick up, and once that happened the book became amazing. Doubt is well written with great imagery and some plot twists that I never saw coming. There aren't many books that have such a unique plot twist. Once religion is brought into Doubt, the book gets a little weird but when the pieces start falling into place it making sense. When the background stories of some of the paranormal creatures come to light, the book gets even better.

Anyone seeking a phenomenal paranormal YA novel that’s wonderfully fresh, innovative and devoid of any clichés or predictability will love DOUBT. This book appealed to me greatly as not only an avid reader of YA fantasy (sub genres), but also the exciting and original premise stood-out at me. Character-driven and action-packed this scintillating story keeps you thoroughly entertained, as the type of story that engulfs you completely! Contemporary, modern and current themes such as online gaming and high school blended together gave the story an edgy twist that teens will love. Easily identifiable characters such as Harry and Cristal were brilliantly realized on the page, so that readers can empathize with them. The interesting way in which the author approaches Angels and Demons I found utterly fascinating and entirely *new* and so I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this to readers both young and old alike.
