Here is the description from the book:

Fifteen year old Megan Laughlin has a gift;or what seems like a curse at times. Megan sees angels and demons.

Megan knows her destiny is to protect her friends against dark angels who try to sway them into situations that can destroy their souls, their lives, and their eternity.

At school she recognizes an uber popular boy, as a demon hell bent on destroying her and everyone she loves. As Judas spreads horrible rumors and overdoses two of her classmates at a rave, Megan realizes the enormity of his power. While classmates die, Megan, with the help of an angel, Johnny, and a team of friends will face the fight of their lives as they battle Judas.

Megan thinks God hasn't given her any "special" powers, but discovers she has what she needs as she confronts Judas and his seemingly unconquerable power.


Sounds decent from the description, doesn't it? This book took way too long to get to any type of point. Way too many unnecessary details, character build up is minimal. I wanted to put it down but continued reading to see if it got any better. 100 pages in, I still was not sure where it was headed. I'm wondering where the epic battle is, I must have missed it. I guess the ending was supposed to be a cliffhanger build up to the next volume but I was glad it was over. Not interesting enough to find out what happens next. The author is obviously devout in her beliefs, as am I, but this book is waaaay to preachy for my taste. Glad it was free.

    The first book in this trilogy was an eye opener in the struggle

    The first book in this trilogy was an eye opener in the struggle between good and evil. Good wins out, but not without a fight and a lot of faith. I have already recommended this book to a friend. She also was hooked after just a few pages. Thank you for such wonderful and inspiring stories. It helped my see my wayward niece in a whole new light. I've again taken up praying her, where as before reading this book, I had given up on her. Thanks be to God.
