Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers....the place to be when it's rocking and rolling outside, but you just can't resist the temptation of another book. By rocking and rolling, I'm referring to all those (perhaps including myself, one never knows what the weather will bring) affected by Hurricane Issac. Hopefully you are all safe and dry; if not, you are in my thoughts anyway so I'll send friendly wishes your way.
Today's post is part of a celebration spreading throughout the blogosphere for the second book in a great new Young Adult series, The Angel Chronicles by Amy Lignor. Perhaps you've heard of it? If not, here's a peek back at book 1....
The Angel Chronicles, book 1: Until Next Time
How does a girl choose between the one who steals her heart and the one who owns her soul?
Matt and Emily were created for a specific job. Raised and trained as the ultimate angel/warrior team, they are sent down to save, defend, judge and forgive, depending on the 'life' they've been assigned. What they don't realize is that the power of human emotions, such as love, anger, passion and fear can take over even the best of souls, causing them to make mistakes and follow paths that lead to confusion and heartache.
When the reason for their training is finally revealed, the angel/warrior team find themselves thrust into a world they know nothing about. Matt takes over the life of Daniel, a young man with a great deal of baggage. Emily becomes Liz, a girl living in a remote village who relies on nothing more than her own strength to survive. A violent storm erupts one night, and framed in the window of Liz's establishment is a frightening face. Let in by the soul of a Good Samaritan, the two visitors bring with them a past full of secrets that could literally change an angel's path and a warrior's plans.
From murder to redemption, this angel/warrior team must find a way to keep the faith they have in each other in a world that's ripping them apart.
Sounds good, right?
It SO was!
Don't believe me? No worries. I thought of that too.
