Spencer Bishop is trying to remember who she really is. After being granted her memories back by an act of bravery, Aiden her true love and the Angels in Heaven try to get her to realise her true destiny and prevail over the evil that is set to destroy her and Heaven.
For a debut novel from this author I find this book to be a good start to what could be a great series.
I must admit I was a bit unsure while trying to get to grips with the first few chapters. The writing didn't seem to flow very well and some sentences seemed almost juvenile, but I persevered.
Further along the writing seemed to change and it was easy for me to become carried away by the story.
The essence of the plot is very good although a few scenes made me feel I was being rushed through the story. I felt a little more explanation was needed. Why certain things were happening and what specific time frame.
There is an array of characters all playing their necessary part, none seemed inconsequential but as with the plot could have benefited from a descriptive that helped me imagine what they looked like.
My fascination with Angels always draws me to books like this and I was excited to read this one, this is a good story with a plot that makes me want to see how far this series can go. Spencer is an intriguing character and I think her time in Heaven could carry on to many great books.
Dealing with the loss of her husband in the car crash where she saw the figure, the action quickly speeds up. There is a new someone in her life, someone who appears to her like a ghost only she soon realises that he is an angel and she knows him from her past. A past that she cannot remember, memories that have been hidden from her.
The writing moves us quickly from one scene to another, one minute Spencer is grieving for her husband, the next she becomes involved with the angel Aiden. She is soon caught up in a fight against good and evil, being the one that could change Heaven and Hell forever. I feel it could have been a little longer, with the scenes giving us a little more insight into how she feels with everything that is happening to her, maybe a little more description about the people and surroundings. I like the use of angels, fallen angels and demons and the love between humans and otherworldly creatures. The plot is strong; the editing great and for a debut novel it is a good start to a series. It will be interesting to see which way Spencer will lean in the battle ahead.
This story begins with the marriage of Spencer to the man of her dreams David. It's a brief marriage as the newly weds suffer a car crash that has fatal consequences. Spencer is plagued by visions of a man in white and continually hears his voice but her grief over the loss of her beloved David is only the beginning of her problems. Pretty soon the strange man called Aiden convinces her that David and the life they shared was a sham. Spencer's life and memories have been altered to protect her and those in heaven. Yes, heaven is real ! Angels and demons will feature heavily in Spencer's life and she's in more danger than she ever dreamed.
Struggling to come to terms with so much change around her Spencer can only hope that the choices she now makes will be the right ones. She's not the ordinary human she believed and her very existence puts heaven at risk. Who can she trust and how can she survive? And just who is the man she's meant to be with?
I found this to be quite a quick read and found it a little strange at first. I loved the idea that the heroine could make choices and change her own destiny. I feel this is an interesting beginning to what could be quite a unique series. A good plot but I'd like to see more action in any follow up and I hope that this author will flesh out her characters more next time.
I'd rate this as a 3 and a half as I normally do prefer longer books
Or did he? Visits from an angel, a demon, a trip to heaven. Memories of a wedding that didn't happen, no memory of a love that did, murder, angels, demons, and souls are at stake. Samples has put a new spin on the familiar tale of the war between heaven and hell, angels versus demons for control of earth and all souls. She threw a curve ball at the end that I wasn't in anyway anticipating.
This was an interesting book. The narrative isn't quite smooth in some places, but overall, a good novel for a first time author. If Samples continues the way she started, she will have a promising career as an author to look forward to. I hope she does. I want to see what happens in the sequel. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

This book was brilliant and is action packed from start to finish, with something for everyone.
Spencer is a feisty character that I absolutely fell in love with.
I cannot wait to read the next book to see if Spencer truly beat's Hell or if she becomes one of the Fallen.
