Three angels-Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, the youngest and most human- are sent by Heaven to bring good to a world falling under the influence of darkness. They work hard to conceal their luminous glow, superhuman powers, and, most dangerous of all, their wings, all the while avoiding all human attachments.
Then Bethany meets Xavier Woods, and neither of them is able to resist the attraction between them. Gabriel and Ivy do everything in their power to intervene, but the bond between Xavier and Bethany seems too strong.
The angels’ mission is urgent, and dark forces are threatening. Will love ruin Bethany or save her?
Oh. My. God. I don’t care what anyone else says about this book, it was fantastic. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. Bethany is the main character of the book, and it’s her first time traveling to Earth and being in a human body. The fact that she’s so young definitely shows. She’s ignorant of almost all things 21st century. So ignorant that it might annoy you as you read. Personally I thought it was funny and that Alexandra Adornetto got the point of Beth’s youth across very well. She’s just like any normal teenage girl, except that she’s an angel. She knows that she can’t stay on Earth, and once she’s fallen in love with Xavier it becomes a huge internal dilemma. I liked Beth because throughout the trilogy she was always a very honest character and was almost always more concerned about those she loves more than herself. This book kept me on my toes, I didn’t know what to expect next. Although, I’ll admit there were a few things that I saw coming a mile away. The way the Adornetto wrote had me fall in love with all the characters almost immediately. Another big thing about this book was the religious aspect of it. Gabriel, Ivy and Bethany are angels sent to Earth to defeat the evil that’s happening all over town. And to do this the trio needs to make the town have faith in God again. There is a lot of God talk and things along that line. I’m not a terribly religious person and I’m not one to get offended about religion unless someone is pushing it on me. This book isn’t like that. It isn’t pushed onto the reader, it’s just mentioned, frequently. So if religion talk bothers you this book may not be for you. I think the only think I didn’t like about this book was the girl that took Beth under her wing, Molly. I hated her more and more as I kept reading. She was just the stupidest, most air-headed girl and it seriously irritated me. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that enjoys the supernatural young adult types of books.
Keep on reading lovelys, Amanda.
