Guardian angel Selene was so close to becoming an archangel—the supreme of all beings—until she fell in love with Cole, a forbidden dark one. Once she discovers her vampire lover has been kidnapped and the only way to save him is by abandoning her number one priority—Caitlyn, her human charge—there really is only one answer in Selene’s mind, even though leaving Caitlyn unguarded will most likely cause Selene to fall from grace.
But her choice to save Cole doesn’t come without a price…and now Selene is racing against time to not only save her dark lover, but find a way to keep Caitlyn alive as well.
With the help of a new vampire ally, Luke, Selene will push her diminishing angel abilities to the point where her very existence lies in the balance. Now threatened with the chance of becoming a fallen angel or even dying, Selene can only pray she’ll have enough time—and good grace—to save the ones she loves.
This book was interesting, and had a lot going on, so if the summary did not make sense it was because I was trying to give the idea of the book without giving away the key elements that you need to find out for yourself. I have not read many books about angels, and definitely not one where the angels and vampires together, so I was intrigued. I liked this book, and thought that the story line was defiantly something new. I wanted Selene to succeed in her quest for love at every step of the way and was cheering her on, but wish that the character of Cole was more defined. She talked and talked about how much she loved him (and she was even willing to leave her human without a guard to find him) but I did not feel that I knew him in the book. (Their relationship happened before the book so we don’t know that story line.) All in all this was an interesting and enjoyable read, with love, loss , and a lot of fighting for what you believe in. Great for the high school crowd.
