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.
Matt and Emily are angels in heaven who are about to be sent to earth. They are going to take over the lives of Daniel and Liz, 2 people who died before their earthly work was done.
I really enjoyed reading this book. It was beautifully written. It is told mostly from the point of view of Emily/Liz. At 1st I had a little trouble going back and forth between heaven and earth but as I read it became easier.
The scenes in heaven were mostly lessons between Matt and Emily and the arch Angels. I found this to be very sweet and enjoyable to read. The lessons taught are appropriate for everyone.
As Daniel and Liz, Matt and Emily do not retain their heavenly memories and training. Part of their mission is to learn why humans lose their faith. While on earth they to struggle with human emotions. Even though they are soulmates in heaven, on earth they may make other choices.
I was a little confused by both the prologue and epilogue and how they related to the story. It seemed that Emily was looking back on their 1st visit. I wasn't sure how far in the future it took place in.
I highly recommend this book and looking forward to the next book in the series.
