When Julia climbs into a flaming car to save a trapped child, she's left wondering why either of them survived. Then she learns that her father is the Archangel Gabriel, and that she is half human, half Archangel.

With guidance from Michael, the most powerful Archangel, Julia sets out to discover her own history and explore her angelic powers. But her journey is cut short when an evil force, invisible to human and angel alike, tears her world apart.

Now Julia must fight through her despair, harness her newfound gifts, and risk her very soul to stop the A'nwel and protect the family she never knew she had.

What she doesn't know is that Archangels have secrets too.

I jumped at the chance to read and review this for a blog tour that SHP was organizing. It had been awhile since I had read a book with an Angel theme and this one sounded promising and well, the cover art really got me too. I think the cover is beautiful.

We follow Julia as she learns more about whom she descends from and we find out what she’s been through in her life to get her where she is..and boy Poor Julia had been through a LOT of stuff in her life.
Some sensitive subjects are covered in this book from suicide to multiple kinds of abuse. So if you’re one that tends to avoid that kind of subject matter you might want to pass on this book. This story will definitely put your emotions through the ringer. I had to break out the box of kleenex a few times!

I generally read books that have a romantic theme to theme and this one had a little bit of a romance for awhile and I really dug the male character, Alex, that Julia was dating in this book. He was very protective of Julia and was destined to be apart of Julia’s life and he followed through with what he was to do.

You get the POVs from Julia AND the Angels which is cool, but it’s all in Third person and that is one thing that drives me crazy. (Don’t ask me why! It just does! Ha.) I can see getting the Angels POVs in Third Person but I always like to read my main characters in first person..so that kind of drove me batty throughout the whole book. Ha. Other than that..this book was a decent read and is quite different from other angelic themed books that I have read. If you’re into Angels but want to read something a little different, you should check this book out.

Thanks to Spence City for allowing me to read and review this book!

About Michelle L. Johnson

Michelle L. Johnson was born in Ohio and adopted by Canadians. They traveled all over North America, and when they weren’t on the road Michelle could be found with her nose buried deeply in the pages of a book. With all of her travels and adventures, she hopes to bring some of her unique perspective to the pages and to entertain others the way all of her heroes have for her. When she’s not hanging out with her feathered friends, she’s busy being a literary agent with Inklings Literary Agency. She says wherever she hangs her coffee mug is her home, and right now that’s a toasty warm Jacksonville, Florida with her happy Cocker Spaniel and her small family.
