Okay… I admit it. I’m on an angel kick. So here’s what I’ve received this week.
Xandir has been exiled to earth until the end of time. But when his cherub trainee disappears, Xandir makes a deal with rogue angels and giants that could restore life to the mortal woman he loves and end his assignment as a destroying angel in exchange for helping them bring about the end of the world and all of mankind.
Why I Picked It up: Fallen angels have been on my mind lately, so when I saw this, I was curious. The premises is a bit sketchy. Don’t get why an exiled angel would be responsible for training a Cherub or where the whole in love with a mortal woman comes into play, but hey! I’m willing to give this one a chance. I received this from the Netgalley.
After a barn raising accident, Judith Fischer’s convinced she’s met an angel. However, her attempts to convince others end up frustrating her Old-Order Amish community. Only Andrew Lapp believes her, but the rest, including Levi Plank, the man’s she’s waited to marry, demand she forget the nonsense. Meanwhile, her younger sister Martha has taken a fancy to Levi and sees her sister’s controversy as a perfect distraction for turning Levi’s head.
In a dream, the angel tells Judith she must choose her path. As her faith continues to grow, so do her feelings for Andrew. Will she continue to place her hope in the angel’s message, even if it means losing all she knows and loves?
Why I Picked It up: This one is totally out of my normal reads. I’m trying to be adventurous these days and step out of my comfort zone. Amish? Yeah… that’s totally new for me. However, it has angels, so I’m hoping for a bit of supernatural happenings, which totally is my thing. I’m looking forward to the novelty of Amish meets Angel. 🙂 Another Netgalley read.
What did you get this week? What are some of your favorite angel stories?
