Una serie di tragedie si è abbattuta su Venus Cove: per gli esseri umani si è trattato di dolorose fatalità; per le Forze Celesti, invece, è un piano demoniaco assai più vasto. Così mandano in città tre angeli: Gabriel, l’arcangelo guerriero, Ivy, la guaritrice, e la giovane Bethany, alla sua prima esperienza sulla Terra. All’inizio, Bethany fatica a calarsi nella parte di una normale studentessa e non sa come fare amicizia coi compagni. A poco a poco, però, per lei diventa sempre più naturale parlare, agire e anche amare come loro: agli angeli è proibito provare sentimenti umani eppure, appena incrocia lo sguardo di Xavier, Bethany è pronta a infrangere le leggi del Cielo. E, forse, il suo atto di ribellione salverà il mondo…

Given some practice in character and plot development, experience with real relationships, and some life perspective, it's possible this 18-year-old author might produce an interesting book at some point. As it stands, however, it's unreasonable to expect the average teenager to tackle such weighty

My GOD, how could anyone possibly finish this piece of crap? x_x I gave up after several chapters because it was just so bad. Not even the funny kind of bad. Just plain bad. It took a while for my brain cells to heal fully. I'll continue this book once giant unicorns poop out chocolate-flavored rainb Leggi tutto
