My Cover Thoughts: A beautiful white feather just resting there waiting for it to be noticed.
My Thoughts/Review: Okay so let me start out by saying I am in LOVE with this series and I could not put this book down. I have read a lot of books about Angels and Demons but I have NEVER read a story line quite like this.
The story starts out with a beautiful introduction by an SWOON worthy man and continues with the story line of Fallen Angels and Angels that are Guardian Angel’s that are trying to save mankind from Zombies.
Sam is your ordinary girl who is a doctor working in an ER and has a twin sister who she shares everything with and they have another sister who is a kindergarten teacher. This close family has lost their parents so all they have left is each other and will do everything in their power to stay together. Things get a little crazy when a mysterious disease or virus hits their town and everyone is infected. They are hauled of to a military base where they can quarantine and checked on to make sure the virus has not reached them.
Once there Sam realizes that there is more to this virus than anyone is letting on and she wants to know what is going on and how long she will have to be in hiding at the base. She will get her answers and more but is she ready for the truth? Only time can tell.
I do not want to give to much away but I will say this if you want action pack, and fast pace this is the book to read. There is love between people that should not have happened and then there is love that people have that is not reciprocated but that does not stop the person from loving the other. And last but not least there are some AWESOME love scenes that are hot and heavy and a little X-rated for teens under 17.
With all that said what are you waiting for, go out there and get your copy at Amazon.com, I promise you, you will not be disappointed! I know I was not and I can’t wait to read the Second book The Guardian’s Soul!
Memorable Quotes: Page 127-128 Sam talking to her sister Babs
By Barbra's stance I knew it was H.B. "Is he ok?" I was afraid of the answer. "Did he sacrifice himself for me?"
"He finally returned to his body, and by the looks of it, he should be fine. The stab wound-"
"Stab wound!" I screamed, "What stab wound, what happened?"
"Well, you didn't think he just hailed a cab to Hell, did you?
He had to perform a ritual and sacrifice to get there. He's now officially a Guide, but it doesn't look like he gets many perks for being one. He's in his coyote form now trying to heal." I could see the tears form in her blue eyes. "I didn't know if I would see either one of you Sam. And when you came back, at first, he didn't."
"I know, I felt his soul hovering, unsure of where to return to." I walked over to Barbra and pulled her into my arms. My hands caressing her blush colored wings. "He'll be okay Babs,and I feel like I will be too. I just needed you to come here so I could tell you that and that Dricus was not the one who harmed me."
Advice: This book is AMAZING! A must read for everyone who loves angels, demons, and Zombies!
