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 must 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 angel’s mission is urgent, and dark forces are threatening. Will love ruin Bethany or save her?
A good part of the beginning is pretty slow and nothing much happens, just seems like a lot of explaining. There's only so many ways you can explain the same thing before it starts to get tiring. Instead of just explaining how they're angels, etc. it explained it and then some. There's a couple things here and there that happen that make it feel like something good is gonna happen, but it sort of dies and not much happens. After getting past the slower half of the book, things really start to pick up. The new guy Jake shows up at school, Bethany and Xavier's relationship seems to take a turn for the worse and I actually wanted to cry, it felt ssooo relate-able what happens with them. Things just keep rolling from there. I really enjoyed reading this after the story actually got going, it's ssoo good, it's much better than I was expecting it to be. I had decided to read it because I love books about Angels and this is worth the read. I like Bethany, but she's a bit dense sometimes. I think my fav characters are Xavier and Ivy, Xavier is the total dream guy hero and Ivy is the understanding trusting older sister. All in all, this book is really good, but the story could have had a bit more things happen in it in the beginning.
