Nothing much happens in the sleepy town of Venus Cove. But everything changes when three angels are sent from heaven to protect the town against the gathering forces of darkness: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. They work hard to conceal their true identity and, most of all, their wings. But the mission is threatened when the youngest angel, Bethany, is sent to high school and falls in love with the handsome school captain, Xavier Woods. Will she defy the laws of Heaven by loving him? Things come to a head when the angels realize they are not the only supernatural power in Venus Cove. There′s a new kid in town and he′s charming, seductive and deadly. Worst of all, he′s after Beth.
Angels, who'da thunk it? After all the vampires and werewolves I've been reading about in the last year, angels will be a welcome change. And, they are good angels, trying to protect the people in town. I'm glad this one comes out soon, and that Feiwel and Friends sent me an ARC to review. I'll definitely be getting to it shortly!
