"First I would like to state that I received this book through the Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank the author for giving me this opportunity and honor in being able to read this book. When I received this book I began reading it at once. I really enjoy the authors writing style, the author pulls you into the book from the very beginning and you don't want to put the book down. The author has all the characters very well portrayed thought out. You are brought a wonderful plot about a journalist who has become involved in UFO documentary research. While doing his research he comes across similarities between his wives experience she’d had and others claiming abduction by aliens. His research takes him many different place some of which are Roswell, Belgium and also England. The information he uncovers prompts him to embark on a quest for the trith to what is really happening. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat reading from cover to cover wanting to find out more. There are what I would call twist and turns in the story too that the author has tossed into the story to keep you on your toes wondering. When you are finished you wish you weren't. This is a most wonderful read and I highly recommend that anyone. This is a book that I will be sure to read over and over and a must for anyone's library."

"I totally enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next two. The book had me from the beginning. I didn't want to put it down because I couldn't wait to see what happened next. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in UFO's, aliens and angels. The characters are interesting and the storyline great. As you read you keep feeling - is this book for real - did this really happen - or is it make believe? At times, I'm still not sure! Be sure to read "Coming of Angels" by M. J. Banks!"

"Wow what a wonderful read, I couldn't put the book down! Just when you think you have the answer there is another twist. The author has a very smooth and catchy style that keeps your interest from beginning to end. So veey clever how she takes 2 opposite believes and intertwine them. I can't wait for Book 2 and 3."

“Jack, Leslie and their twin daughters are taken by Aliens into their space craft . The twins experience a visit from an Angel. All of this leads to Jack being invited to join a group called "The Committee". This is a really good book that chronicles the real happenings of the World up to the present. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a mystery combined with science fiction.”

“Truth is stranger than fiction, as the saying goes. But then Fiction is based on some truth or facts. In Coming Of Angels Banks reveals facts that have been covered up time and again throughout the past century regarding extraterrestrials. She also unveils stories and incidents regarding Angels. The statement in the book that “the Clues are there” is true and profound. But like everything else we know and believe we must have Faith.
Jack and Leslie Branden are our storytellers. Though they are fictional they are totally believable. You can immediately identify with them even if you don’t have the same background. Often I have the same questions as they do regarding the abductions and sightings. I don’t want to reveal those questions because it would unveil the purpose of the books.
Yes, there are three books, this being the first. The second promises to answer those questions. The third promises to prophesize the future based on our choices.
It’s a quick and easy read but it catches you from the beginning. I highly suggest it. Can’t wait for two and three.”

“This book kept my attention from the beginning to the end as I wondered what was coming next -- and now I can't wait to read the sequel! At times, the read becomes so "real", one almost feels like it really truly is not science fiction! The research done by the author was impressive to create the plots that carry one from one chapter to another! When is the sequel coming out?”
-Anonymous, Amazon (FIVE STARS)

“I was very happy to have the opportunity to read Book 2 of this very entertaining trilogy. M J Banks has done it again! As in Book 1, the author's research and knowledge are apparent as world events of the time period are woven into this fictional story. Not so patiently waiting for Book 3!”
-M. Dietrich, Amazon (FIVE STARS)
“Wonderful follow up to Book I!! Great characters and interesting new events...written in a way that makes it feel real! Can’t wait for Book III! Highly recommend!”

“Memories of how our Library system encouraged us to read back in the 70’s with the slogan “Reading is Fun-damental.” This trilogy has become just that.
In Book 1, Strange Happenings, you are introduced to the Branden family and their unusual gifts and experiences. Book 2, Contact goes further into the meetings of their experiences and keeps you wondering what will happen next. Not wanting to spoil the read for the reader I don’t want to give too much away. You, the reader, if you are so inclined, I hope you are, read them.
I know that it is primarily fiction, but there is truly a great deal of fiction is based on truth. Banks has concocted a series here that involves you as you evolve with the story.
Now that I’ve finished Book 2 I must wait till Book 3 comes out. That probably won’t satisfy me, as I will want to read a Book 4… 5… 6…
Pick them up and read them. You’ll see.”
