Reviews

'I was hooked on this book within the first chapter! I just loved how different it is from anything else I have read.' Annabell's Book Nook blog

"Accurately hitting on celebrity-obsessed culture and the dichotomy between the glitterati and everyday people, Speer blends romance and mystery to deliver a fresh take on the angel novel .. Strong writing, well-rounded characters, and an enticing hook in the form of the mercenary/ celebutante angels breathe life into the world Speer has created." - Publishers Weekly
