This is a lovely story about a young girl, frightened by all that is going on around her. A beautiful love story that cannot end well, for however it ends it is not possible for Elizabeth and Lev to be together. The book tackles the questions that young adults raise in wanting to know the truth and even, tells the reader why it is so important, even if meant well as a means of protection, the truth should be told. Although the story is set as a paranormal romance it does tackle everyday issues in the life of a teenager, trust, love, understanding a parent's decision and making one's own choices whether right or wrong and dealing with the consequences. A recommended read for this age group.

I really loved this book, it was beautifully written and had me believing in 'Lev' who is an angel that carries soul to the other side, just wished it would have carried on and on as it carried me along so well that the end came far to quick.

When seventeen-year-old Elizabeth Moon is forced to move back to her childhood town, she realizes that she's not just an ordinary teen. She's a teen with a guardian angel, one that is in love with her and has been by her side for seven life times. Each of those life times has been tragically cut short, when she has died before reaching the age of eighteen. Her angel has taken it upon himself to make sure that this time, she survives to live a longer life. However, her move back to her hometown is fraught with danger, and she narrowly escapes several near-death experiences with the help of her angel. Will her angel succeed in intervening and overcoming her life being cut short? Will he do so at the cost of his own existence? Will the love between them survive?

Maria Rachel Hooley has written an engaging romantic teen fantasy. I enjoyed every moment of reading it. I was immediately drawn in by the intense feelings between Elizabeth and her angel, willing them to overcome their troubles. The book, as part of a series, leaves many questions still to be answered. I look forward to reading the rest of the books and highly recommend them to YA lovers of contemporary fantasy.

Elizabeth (Lizzie) Moon and her guardian Jimmie have returned to the small town of Hauser's Landing; the place where her mother was killed and her father disappeared. Starting at the local high school, Lizzie quickly draws the interest of rich boy Griffin, but it is the mysterious Lev Walker; the blond boy who appears in her dreams and watches her as she dies that Lizzie wants to learn more of.

The plot has a strong supernatural feel to it as Lizzie begins to uncover her strange connection to Lev, but it is kept grounded in the ordinary world as Lizzie faces prejudice as a mixed race young women. Lizzie begins to face the same abuse her father suffered before his disappearance, and whilst Lev may prove to be her own personal angel, is he a guardian or a threat?

This is a great start to a new teen paranormal romance series. The relationship between Lizzie and Lev is filled with suspense as Lizzie figures out whom she can really trust. There is a real air of threat surrounding the young heroine, which makes some of her behaviour (namely insisting she'll be safe walking/driving home alone in the dark) somewhat stupid and irritating, but hey they result in additional tense action scenes.

Because they may not notice common mistakes that this Author makes. I try and avoid the T word in reviews, as I find it repetative and annoying but it is difficult to not compare this to Twilight. I have read a ton of books like this one in the past couple of years and none match the main character quite as much.

The main character moves to a small town with her Guardian after her Father's disappearance (or something). It's difficult to tell where the story is going or how Elizabeth ends up in certain situations at times as the Author has difficulty with pacing. The scenes in italics, Elizabeth's dreams or visions etc, are actually very written and definitely made me want to read more but I was put off the book completely when she first meets Lev - by falling in a river. I felt that the story was getting a little too ridiculous for my taste at this point, so I stopped reading.

Elizabeth herself can easily be compared to Bella. She's clumsy, passes out too much and spends most of her time with her nose in the air. And poor Griffin was named before he could even introduce himself, a rookie error that had me laughing a lot! A unique point that I feel I should point out is that our main character is indian. This doesn't stop her being a shallow as a puddle and the cover doesn't show an indian girl, but she is. The writing itself isn't horrendous and is certainly readable, if you like the YA romance books that have been going around lately - Dead Beautiful, Die For Me, The Goddess Test, etc.

I got this book free from Amazon and I enjoyed it. However, I did start seeing similarities to another bit of YA fiction almost immediately.

If you liked Twilight, you'll probably like this. It has the addition of a bit of extreme racial antagonism to give the main character a reason to require saving but otherwise the story is much of a muchness.

Also, one odd moment; for a character so aware of how awful small-minded people can be when it comes to equality between people with different coloured skin, I found her callous disregard for equality between the genders strange - she seems to think a man who cooks is being unusual and worth mocking. This really bugged me.

This book overwhelmingly reminded me of Twilight in it's structure and story line. The twists were in substituting an angel for a vampire and throwing the heroine into the midst of a racist town instead of her having to face up to a hunter vampire.
