Favorite Character: Ellie
Book 1 in the Fallen Angel Series!
Ellie was never particularly good at talking to boys—or anyone other than her best friend and fellow outcast, Ruth. Then she met Michael.
Michael is handsome, charming, sweet. And totally into Ellie. It’s no wonder she is instantly drawn to him. But Michael has a secret. And he knows Ellie is hiding something, too. They’ve both discovered they have powers beyond their imagining. Powers that are otherworldly.
Ellie and Michael are determined to uncover what they are, and how they got this way . . . together. But the truth has repercussions neither could have imagined. Soon they find themselves center stage in an ancient conflict that threatens to destroy everything they love. And it is no longer clear whether Ellie and Michael will choose the same side.
In this electrifying novel, Heather Terrell spins a gripping supernatural tale about true love, destiny, and the battle of good versus evil.
I was pleasantly surprised by this novel. While so much of the YA genre is dominated with overdone fantasy couples, the relationship between Ellie and Michael was certainly refreshing. They go through this experience together, leaning on and learning from one another.
Despite the surplus of ‘angel’ novels out there, this is the first one I’ve read. I’ve nothing to compare it to, but I even if I did I wouldn’t want to. The plot is incredibly unique, twisting and turning and leaving me guessing. The end was quiet, but good in its own way.
One thing I also loved in this book was how Ellie nevers abandons her friend. In other novels, once they get the boy, the friends are dropped immediately. But this book gave me some hope. Because I liked Ruth, and her obsessive, over-protective ways.
I wasn’t exactly sure what Ellie was for most of the novel. But..some of the suggestions they believed were quite silly, because I already knew they couldn’t be true. xD
I give Fallen Angel 4/5 stars. It’s a great YA read that I enjoyed immensely.
