David Allegri didn’t mean to ruin Tessa’s life. She was the brightest soul he’d seen in centuries and he couldn’t let her die, so the fallen angel used his abilities to heal her—only he took it too far and changed Tessa forever. Now, he has to figure out a way to explain what’s happening to Tessa and somehow protect both of them from the consequences.
His choice made them targets for the Hunters, who will use any means necessary to capture their prey. Only a desperate plan can help them escape, and sacrifices will be made. Time is ticking. Will they make it, or will they be lost to the echoes of fate?
I’m not a big angel book lover fan, but this one was done very well. It had some interesting history and layout of heaven that I found different from other Angel books. The existence of angels on earth living amongst us has always been questioned. Ms. Ross gives us an amazing take and theory on how the Angels do their jobs on earth and why.
What I liked:
-Great world building- I really got lost in the mythos and background of the dynamics of Heaven and Earth.
-The Characters- David- a rogue Angel who roams the earth healing humans, and Tessa- a human girl who lived after a horrific event takes her family’s lives. Both characters are really nice and seem to just want to help people in the world. Always helps if they fall for each other in a really good way, right?
-The plot- David loves to use his powers of healing on unsuspecting humans, and in healing Tessa, he goes too far. Now, both are being hunted by the bounty hunters of heaven and some unsavory ‘angels’ up there, don’t have their best interest in mind.
-The secondary characters: Nico- he was insane to the brain but stole every scene he was in with ease. Tessa’s BFF Morgan was hysterical and down to earth. They really added flavor to the story and I hope there will be more of both in book 2.
What I didn’t like:
-The ending, it was left wide open for the next book, which I just pray will get here soon. (please, please, please)
-The way Tessa gets to heaven. Didn’t sound too pleasant and it made me cringe.
-Nico’s complete and utter apathy- Like when he discards his supposed true love so easily, without a thought. Does the man have no heart? *Shudders*
Pretty cool right?
I can’t wait for book 2, need to know what happens next in this battle of higher beings.
