When seventeen-year-old Anya finds out she’s actually an angel being trained to protect humanity, she discovers that becoming an angel has nothing to do with wings and halos. For Anya, becoming an angel has to do with death—her death.

Micah, the angelic soldier ordered to protect her until she transitions from human to angel, promises her death will be a glorious experience as long as she follows his rules. But getting Anya through this life and to the next isn’t as simple as Micah expects. His job becomes even more difficult after he unwittingly performs a miracle that exposes Anya’s hidden angelic light.

With her secret out, Hell’s legions begin targeting her. Unfortunately, Hell’s minions are the least of Micah’s worries. He’s more concerned about the forbidden human emotions he’s developed toward Anya. Even more troubling, is she seems to love him too. And giving in to those feelings, could mean dire consequences for them both.

This book was excellent.

Anya is a sweet girl who is struggling through high school and hating every single minute of it. She’s a bit of a late bloomer and it doesn’t exactly make her very popular.  Then bam she finds out she’s an angel. I loved how much trouble she caused for Micah.

Micah is stubborn and annoying as hell but totally loveable. He’s a solider and is used to orders being barked at and by him and them being followed. He doesn’t quite know how to handle Anya which is very entertaining.

I loved Eli. He is my favourite character. He’s highly eccentric and always dispersing awkward situations. He made me laugh out loud with his outfits. I hope we see more of him in the future books.

I honestly don’t know h0w I feel about Simon. I’m on the fence as to if he is good or bad, I guess I will have to read the next book to find out more on him. Aunt Celeste was great and I liked Sam too.

I loved how unique this story was, with the angels starting off as humans. It made it even more enjoyable. I honestly cannot wait for the next instalment of the series.
