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 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? (Goodreads)
I've seen this series all over and finally decided to pick up the first one and give it a go. And honestly, it just wasn't for me. While I liked some aspects of it, especially the fact that these were not nephilim or fallen angels, giving this book a much lighter aspect, it kind of frustrated me in parts. There were some basic timeline issues, and I had a really hard time connecting with Bethany--mainly because she made a whole heck of a lot of dumb choices that made me kind of want to go "But you're an Angel--what are you doing??" LOL! Okay, really, not trying to be harsh here. There were interesting aspects, and I particularly enjoyed Gabriel and Ivy both--they were perfectly executed, I felt. Overall, just wasn't my personal cup of tea.
Have you read this series? Thoughts? Do the next books get better?
