From Goodreads: Sam is horrified to find herself kidnapped by a bunch of strangers – People stranger than anyone she ever met before. She doesn’t care that they claim to have saved her from death. Or that they call themselves angels. Guardian angels. All that matters to her is that they won’t let her go but insist she stays with them. Forever.
And then it gets even worse.
As time passes, Sam is faced with decisions and choices full of hurt and anguish and she is sure of only one thing… That nothing will ever be the same again.
A story about friendship and love, about commitment and happiness, and a girl who never thought anything out of the ordinary would ever happen to her.
This was a very interesting novel with a completely original storyline concerning angels. What I really like about it is that there are no references to the Bible or the downfall of angels, but rather angels that live in the human world, with extraordinary powers, such as flying, levitating objects, and conjuring food. Their job is to guard people from harm—like a true guardian angel, and I really enjoyed learning about them.
The novel begins right in the middle of the action and moves very quickly throughout the entirety of this story, jumping from scene to scene, which occasionally makes the timeframe of the novel hazy, but overall gives the reader a feeling that ample time has passed in order for the next element in the story to be revealed. I liked Sam and many of the angels, though there were a few angels that rubbed me the wrong way. Luckily, those angels were not meant to be “liked” per se, so I think Larsen did a great job with that aspect of the characterization. I would have liked to have the relationships within the novel slowed down a touch, but overall I did enjoy the romance within the story. For a debut novel, Larsen has created a truly unique, interesting piece that I believe many will highly enjoy. Three stars.
