Synopsis from Goodreads
Sixteen-year-old Rayna sees angels, and has the medication and weekly therapy sessions to prove it. Now, in remission, Rayna starts fresh at a new school, lands a new job, and desperately tries for normalcy. She ignores signs that she may be slipping into the world she has tried so hard to climb out of. But these days, it’s more than just hallucinations that keep Rayna up at night. Students are dying, and she may be the only one who can stop it. Can she keep her job, her sanity, and her friends from dying at the hands of angels she can’t admit to seeing?
I love Angelic Romance stories, and this book was a surprise, I have had this book sitting in my Kindle for a few months now, Last night I decided to read some of my older ARC’s and I could not put it down. The cover is absolutely beautiful, and the story an action filled romance that gets you from the beginning.
Rayna has spent years in and out of mental hospitals convinced that she is insane, because she can see angel wings on people. After 3 years she is finally released and in Remission. Rayna is trying to start her life over, with a new school and new job. Things are going great until a new kid starts at school and he has the most brilliant white wings she has ever seen, convinced she is going crazy again Rayna tries to hide her panic from everyone.
Meanwhile her classmates keep committing suicide after dreaming of dark winged Angels. To cut a long story short, Rayna discovers that she is not crazy that Angels and Fallen Angels exist and has the most realistic reactions that I have ever read in a paranormal story, to finding out that Demons and Angels exist. Rayna gets pulled into a war between heaven and hell because she is the only human who can see the Angels for who they are.
This was a quick and entertaining read and I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series. I highly recommend it.
