When I started reading this book, I almost gave up because I couldn't get into the story, But I decided to keep reading and am so glad that I did. This is not my typical style of reading, but once I got into the story I really enjoyed it. Three angels have come to earth to try to help bring back love and harmony to a small town. Gabriel, Ivy, and Bethany all have their own special powers. Bethany meets a mortal, Xavior Woods and falls in love, even though she knows she shouldn't. When evil one, Jake, comes to town, bad things start to happen. It is up to the three angels to try to defeat him. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

Good book, I enjoy the characters and how they were all developed, and thought that the story picked up in pace by the end. When Bethany blabbed, I thought she was the stupidest girl in the world, but Xavier's reaction totally made up for it and even I became grateful that he knew the truth. I like Bethany's perspective on things given that it's all new for her and how she takes all experiences in stride. I like Ivy and Gabriel, and even Molly (who I''m not sure will really get anywhere in her Gabriel infatuation). Jake was a perfectly horrible addition.
(Spoilers!) I love it. A demon pursuing a refusing angel using evil and nefarious practices. I hate him, but he is such an intriguing character that I dread as much as anticipate his next arrival. I love to hate the villain, and this book has provided a dang-good villain. I'm excited.

Como en las series de Juegos del Hambre y Amanecer, esta saga tiene muchos seguidores y seguramente harán la película. Es una historia de amor entre un mortal y un ángel que ha venido junto con sus hermanos a la tierra a salvarnos del mal, ¿podrá subsistir ese amor por encima de todo?
Un ángel que viene del cielo no tiene permitido enamorarse de un mortal ¿y un mortal cómo puede tener una relación con alguien que viene del cielo?. Jóvenes y adultos van a disfrutar mucho de esta historia de amor imposible.

An amazing read that I would definitely consider picking up again. The characters are described so vividly, it almost seems as if they are real. There was never a slow part in the plot, it was filled to the brim in excitement and action. It was pretty predictable though, other than that I think this is a great recomendation for teens looking for a romance/ action novel.

I love Beth and Xavier as a couple. Overall this book was great! The ending might have been a bit too rushed. I was surprised that Beth's first friend is someone who would be considered to be popular. I can't wait to see what happens in the next one, Hades.

I had to read this book again! I love this book and the main character. She is different from most paranormal fiction books I read, but I love her all the same. You have to read Alexandra's other book Hades; which is the book after this one.

She had the Face of an Angel

A carved wooden box drew my attention. It looked out of place amid the boyish belongings. I pulled it forward and slowly opened the lid. Inside, the box was lined with red satin. In the center lay a single white feather. I recognized immediately as the one Xavier had found in his car after our first date. I knew he would keep it forever. - Bethany, pg. 484

She's never been human before so everything from clothes to ice cream is a new experience. When she's enrolled in school she just hopes to make a friend. She ends up falling for Xavier, a mortal boy putting herself at great risk. Later there is an introduction of a dangerous force to the town and the risk it presents both to her and to the town as a whole
