Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
High Schooler Morning Glory Conroy is an artist who would like to become a comic book illustrator. When Morning Glory meets Gabriel it is love at first sight. However, Gabriel has a mysterious background and seems to have family issues. Morning Glory is determined to figure out the story behind Gabriel so that they can be together. Readers of teen romance will recognize the theme of unrequited love, but the graphic novel approach to the story is new and refreshing. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
Kirkus Reviews
Proving that the power of teen love trumps even Heavenly directives, a budding graphic artist hooks up with an ethereally handsome new classmate. Morning Glory's miserable life at her clique-heavy high school takes a turn for the better with the arrival of hot, strangely naïve Gabriel DiAngelo. A supposedly chance meeting at the local thrift store escalates into movie dates and breathless snogging. Complications arise with the subsequent appearance of Gabriel's catty but equally stunning relative Luci DiAngelo, who displays a gift for inciting divisiveness and violence. In the black-and-white art, Morning Glory--dark-skinned and serious-looking in rimless glasses--and Gabriel, with his manga-style features and artfully disheveled blond hair, make a cute couple. In the end, Luci is sent back where she came from. After a climactic revelation ("You had wings!" "Did not." "Did too! What are you?" "Can't you guess?"), Gabriel confesses that he's a Guardian actually sent to help Morning Glory's friend Julia through some family troubles, freshening up the now-tired guardian-angel-falls-in-love-with-human-ward trope considerably. Another fresh and funny outing in a mostly solid satiric series. (Graphic paranormal romance. 12-14)

    Love the cover

    Okay this was actually good. I mean look at that cover. The wings surrounding the couple. Kind of reminded me of Howl for a second there. Anyway, we had a vampire, a zombie, a Hyde/jekyll, a faerie and yeah, this one an angel.

    Different love interests with their own personalities, am I right? The art was kind of nice too. Giving this a little higher rating since well, it was cute at times and I liked the cover. Story wasn't that bad either. Much better than the last ones, but as good as the first one. This was a pretty good to good series.
