One Angel. One Girl. One Chance.
Demons are winning the war between good and evil as they continue to kill guardian angels. The ripple effect is causing humans the world over to descend into a war of their own without their heavenly protectors.
One of the last angels falls to earth in an attempt to gather the remaining few humans so they can unite in the final battle.
What he didn’t expect to find was the intriguing girl who helps and captivates him while solving the ancient riddle that can save both worlds.
Finding a forbidden love in a hopeless place, they put everything on the line as they hold on to their faith in each other. They must find the courage to continue their quest while the world crumbles around them.
So I was slightly skeptical when I started to read this, that I wouldn’t like the book. But after only a few pages in I was hooked. The story of an Angel falling to earth to fall in love with a human was amazing, especially since it’s not allowed. The love story however, really played second fiddle to the actual theme of the book, at least to me.
Jerome is an angel who is fighting a war against demons when he is suddenly attacked inside the angel village, he then falls to earth. Something that never happens. Leila is a human who discovers Jerome after he has fallen and takes him in, this sets them off on their journey to not only find a way to get Jerome home, but a way to defeat the demons.
The world Leila lives in is in tatters. The violence and destruction of earth is happening all around them, and it’s not looking to stop anytime soon. Jerome knows this is because of the shift in the balance of good vs. evil. Discovering the prophecy that can end all the fighting becomes Jerome and Leila’s focus, and upon discovering who is the chosen one is a shock to both of them.
I have to say that I wasn’t happy with the end of the book, it made me sad, but I am truly ready for the second book and the continuation of Jerome and Leila’s story, to see the rebuilding of earth and how they will find their way back.
