Ellie was never particularly good at talking to boys—or anyone other than her best friend and fellow outcast, Ruth. Then she met Michael.
Michael is handsome, charming, sweet. And totally into Ellie. It’s no wonder she is instantly drawn to him.
But Michael has a secret. And he knows Ellie is hiding something, too. They’ve both discovered they have powers beyond their imagining. Powers that are otherworldly.
Ellie and Michael are determined to uncover what they are, and how they got this way . . . together. But the truth has repercussions neither could have imagined. Soon they find themselves center stage in an ancient conflict that threatens to destroy everything they love. And it is no longer clear whether Ellie and Michael will choose the same side.
In this electrifying novel, Heather Terrell spins a gripping supernatural tale about true love, destiny, and the battle of good versus evil.
Normally, I stay away from Angel books because they are either hit or miss with me. Really wasn't sure about this book, when I saw the blurb for it. I knew that I had to give this book a chance, because usually if I take a chance, it might be a good read.
This book was very nice and lovely. Love Ellie and Michael. They are a very appealing couple. Love that Ellie is someone who cares about her frien, Ruth, her mother and father. What I like about this book is that it starts as a typical YA and we know that she is different because she starts to have these dreams of flying shortly after Michael arrives.
Michael arrives and everything changes. Her dreams become more vivid and take on a surreal quality. Like this a lot more than I thought I would. Plus this becomes important for later on in the book. It turns out that the dreams that Ellie is having are real and Michael is very aware of it.
The twists and turns were very fun to read. Plus I like how the author uses Christian/Biblical mythology in this and got it right for the most part. I'm glad the author did her homework and got it right. Sometimes writers forget to do their homework on Christian mythology. Yet the world building is very good.
Even like the villianous Eziekel who is another Fallen Angel. This book was so good. I really want to read the next one in the series. This book really took me on a journey and I felt the author and the story delivered in a big time way. Plus not to mention that Ellie or Ellsworth is a Chosen One or an Elected One, which I found to be a cool little motif.
The mythology enhanced the book and gave us a reason as to why Eziekel is the way that he is. Also like how everybody has a reason to do what they have done. The chemistry between the two main characters was very enjoyable and hope to see the romance be even a little bit more steamier. (One can hope).
I'm looking forward to seeing what Heather Terrell does in the next book in the second installment.
