Alice is unaware that she is half Angel and is being hunted by the Fallen angels while the Angels want to send her to hell, but it’s not what you think. Losing her mom when she was only six and just witnessed her father’s death, her only hope seems to be a drunken disgraced Angel, Mallory, who has been tasked with watching over Alice, and Gwyn, an Angel whose wings have been clipped, has been tasked with watching over Mallory, and she’s not even sure who to trust anymore. While Alice doesn’t go through the looking glass, she will have to face the war between heaven and hell.
“Hey, define what’s supposed to be normal. You’ve got wings and I just torched a guy. Again.”
This was a good book, but I felt Alice was a really weak character and easily pushed around. For someone who is the saving grace of humanity, you’d think the author, Lou Morgan, would have made Alice more independent and confidant, especially in a Young Adult book where she has lost both of her parents and the world depends on her to save it. Still, it was really good, and I would read more by this author.

I was skeptical about the whole cliché of "angel rescues girl in trouble" story line, but I was willing to give this one a shot. And was very pleasantly surprised. There was actual character development and the angels (even the "good" ones) were pretty badass and had faults. I eagerly await more from Lou Morgan.Was this review helpful?
