    Copy received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Pet was a short but powerful read about a world where angels used to rule but are, for the most part, no longer around in society A girl named Jam accidentally summons Pet, a creature who is on the hunt for a monster hidden in Jam s friend Redemption s house This novel was really cool I loved the story and the message, but the characters were by far the strongest part of the book Pet has to do with family bonds and what happens Copy received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Pet was a short but powerful read about a world where angels used to rule but are, for the most part, no longer around in society A girl named Jam accidentally summons Pet, a creature who is on the hunt for a monster hidden in Jam s friend Redemption s house This novel was really cool I loved the story and the message, but the characters were by far the strongest part of the book Pet has to do with family bonds and what happens when those bonds are severed In the end, a family member is betrayed by someone unexpected, and Pet turns out to be something that isn t expected Pet was probably the coolest character because it acted as metaphor for revenge and redemption While Pet wasn t necessarily a revenge story, those elements at the end made the book better than it would have been without them.I wish that Pet was longer and included evenmessages about family I also think that...
