This exciting debut by author Christa Kinde draws on the rapidly growing interest in angel stories, an emerging trend in teen and preteen supernatural novels. Boys and girls alike will appreciate her gifted storytelling that captures their imagination with things beyond human sight.

- Review by Arian
The author is a Christian, and she bases her angel lore on Scriptural references, extended by a wide-ranging and imaginative system of the different orders of angels and their responsibilities.
This book will be most thoroughly enjoyed by Christian tween- and teenaged readers, because of the age of the viewpoint character and the Christian perspectives that are inherent in the setting.
But anyone who appreciates fantasy, along with engaging and realistic characterisation, and an excellence of writing style not compromised by being directed primarily to a YA audience, will be well advised to give this book a try. (Posted on 2/9/2015)
