Editorial Reviews

Review

"Fast-paced, the story starts off strong and retains a tight rein on the momentum throughout. This book mixes humor, mystery, and the supernatural into a satisfying blend that should appeal to both young and more mature readers." - Coffee Time Romance Review
 
"While I was given the first book I just bought the 2nd one, Eternity, and plan to start it tonight." - The Book Hookup
 
"Great flow of interest and most unusual characters (that you will love as I have). I have laughed out loud at some of them. Good, simple, fast read." - Great Minds Think Aloud Review
 
"A very good read with interesting characters and a quick pace." - Life Is Better With Books Review

I'm in my 30's, but I love an easy read at the end of the day. This is a good book. It's a tween book, so don't expect the world with vocabluary and complex sentences! The book kept my attention, I wanted to keep reading it, I love the characters and the author has a good imagination! I'm on the third book of the series now, and I plan on still going!

This series is excellent. I read the first book in a day and then the following two in two days, which is a feet as I'm a stay at home mom of two children under 3. Although different, you'd like this book if you enjoyed twilight. It's about Angels (although they are never actually called that) and The fallen ones and soul mates caught in between. (don't want to give too much away!!) I had a hard time putting this down, including when i was trying to make dinner :) There are a couple draw backs. I purchased this for my kindle, and some of the spacing is funny. The other is that i feel the author eludes to things unessesarily. e.g. not a direct quote but similar "she had an uneasy feeling and was about to find out why" got a little annoying but doesn't detract from the story. Another MAJOR positive is that the series is complete, i HATE waiting for sequels! (currently awaiting 6...)

Where to begin? It was an intriguing read.

Maggie. Maggie was a really great character to follow, but for different reasons then I would normally think so. I usually love snarky, sarcastic tough heroines but Maggie was relatable, just a regular girl going through life understanding that she is a little different.

Maggies `family' - Ezra, Rufus & Felix added light heartedness and for them I was grateful. I always found myself smiling at the domesticity.

I loved the parts with Eran in them, he really made the story for me, I looked forward to the pages he was on, he was smirky and cute. I was finally satisfied with him at the end, I felt like there was something missing all the way through, like he wasn't making an emotional effort with Maggie and I really wanted him to. I adore the idea of Fated Love!

I did get a bit teary at the end and that was ok. I was happy with Grishom and sad at the same time. He was repentant and brave. I like that.

I don't really want to recap the book, because there isn't really much I can say that doesn't spoil it. I didn't really know what to expect when I started reading and I liked that. I just went with the flow and enjoyed the ride. The only bit I didn't enjoy so much, was that people, like the school office staff & teachers, were so rude to Maggie. I didn't understand why? I also don't really get why she is the last messenger? And also, if the fallen ones killed all the messengers, how did Battersbey live to such an old age? I am hoping to get some answers to these plus more in the next book.

I am going to start on the next book Eternity straight away, but am hoping for a lot of answers, a little more humor and a little less serious :)

Fallen is the first book in the Guardian trilogy. When I first started this book I immediately took a liking to the main character, Maggie. Her story is a unique one, having lost both her parents as a baby her Aunt Teresa raised her. They traveled a lot due to her aunt's career in photography, therefore dragging Maggie to one school or another her whole life. In turn, Maggie has never had any real relationships with anyone, especially people her own age, rarely welcomed in school, constantly being the new kid. The story begins with Maggie being moved into a new home in New Orleans where she will be living for a year (the longest she has ever lived in one place)while her aunt is away on an extended photography trip. She learns she will also be having a roommate, whom she has never met. As the story continues you learn that Maggie is a messenger for both the living and the dead, being able to bring messages to the afterlife and back. That's where the story truly takes a turn and the events following her first night in New Orleans will keep the pages turning.
I really liked this book. At first I felt the writing was pretty amateurish, the words felt too scripted and the story didn't flow very well. What kept me interested was the story itself, I was able to get beyond the writing and style and was quickly so immersed in the story that I had a hard time putting the book down. As the story continued on I noticed the words really started coming together and before I knew it I didn't even recognize the writer from the beginning of the book. It seemed like the author just needed to get the kinks out and from then on the book was very well done, as were the next two books in the series.

I loooved this book. If you are a fan of "Twilight" type romances, give this one a try. The way the writer talks about the love between Maggie & Eran is amazing. The story with Maggie's ability & how it works is very original. You won't be able to put it down - read it in one day. Book #2 is already downloaded on my kindle and I'm itching to get home and read it!
