I bought these books for two reasons. The first being because they were about fallen angels, and the second, they were on sale in the Kindle store.
Am I glad I made the purchase and finished the books? Yes.
Was it the best fallen angles series I have ever read? No.
This series was about a guy who has been in love with a girl pretty much since the beginning of time. She is human and he is an angel. Of course you can imagine why this is a problem, seeing as most human/angel relationships are forbidden, at least in this world they were. As a punishment from God for them loving each other, the guy is banned from heaven and sent to live eternally on earth without the girl he loves. She on the other hand, is still human and must live in the live out life after life as she lives through many of them. Never encountering her true love ever again makes this quite hard for her.
When Grace dies in the body she has been living in, she is immediately transferred to another, just like that. Sometimes it’s at the end of another person’s life and she lives out whatever time they have left. She has witnessed a lot of tragic and horrific things in these lives and, it never ends for her.
When the book picks up she has currently been living in the same body since the body was sixteen. The girl, Grace, that died in the car accident, went to heaven and “the new Grace” is sent to live in her place. She deals with the aftermath of everything that happens. Even though her newest life has been one of her better ones, she still just wants it all to end. She prefers to go from one life to the next with as little attachments as possible.
Then she meets Shane, a bad boy and womanizer to the core, and yet she feels this strange connection to him she can’t explain. And he feels it too.
….I’ll leave it at that to save some of the mystery, but it’s a pretty interesting book. There were many twists and turns that I didn’t see coming so it had the element of surprise. If you can get past the characters practically living at a bar and using alcohol to solve all their problems there is a very god story line there.
Don’t read this book if expect it to tie in with any true facts from the bible because it doesn’t. In fact, it makes one person a villain that really wasn’t one and I didn’t like that very much.
Anyway, I won’t give anymore away. Just read it for yourself and form your own opinions of the story and if you have already read it, feel free to leave me a comment telling me your take on the story. I’d love to hear it.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
