    10*s.....What would you think if you found out that even though you are destined for higher power that you had to choose which side to be on. Neither side is bad but that you have to choose. This was a fantastic book of love and choices and the outcomes of your choices. That is exactly what happens to Sophie. I was able to capture Sophie's feelings and feel what she was going through and feeling. It is a MUST read fabulous story and I would have to say it has me WANTING/NEEDING more!! Thank you, Willow for another AWESOME story!

    I dub thee "Sophie the Great"!
    I can't applaud this book enough!! As usual Willow WOWs us with her intricate tales she weaves! I always find myself relating to her characters, & it draws me into their world(s). And ... quite honestly ... I <3 Sophie! Not only do I support women standing up & saying no to abusers 100% ... I do believe if I were in Sophie's position I too would need to be feared! Then comes the curve ball of the choice that must be made. Sometimes knowing things in advance makes decisions much harder to make. I'm curious to know what side she would choose! ;*)

    Sophie realized she needed to embrace her heritage when her daughter was in trouble . Now she needs to make a choice. Either way she has to give up something in her life but it could mean saving and protecting her daughter. A mothers love is endless. I enjoyed this book and can't wait to find out which side Sophie picks light or dark or is there really a darkside out there.

    This was a book that caught me off guard in the beginning, but as I continued to read through, I found myself enjoying the story. The tale of a women half human half angel trying to serve a greater purpose or is she. I found this to be quit an enjoyable short story minus the cursing. (Just my opinion}... I am looking forward to the next part of this book though. Thanks Willow for a different twist on angels.

    This book was a completely different genre than what I'm used to seeing from the author. With that said, I completely loved it!! Sofia is the ultimate heroine, in my opinion. She has the love of a mother combined with the vengeance of a ninja killer. Her "victims" never see it coming, which makes the act all the more amazing to me. I love this new streak that the author is on and literally can't wait to see what she comes out with next!

    A Higher Calling
    I was lucky to read this awesome book before it was released! This is the first fiction book the author has written in the first person, but her creative writing is just as great, if not better. Warning, this book is not YA, as most of you Willow fans are use to. I love the idea that she ventured out of her genre and did this book. It just shows that Willow is full of surprises and you never know what she might come up with next. I loved it!

    Sophie comes to find herself having to choose one of the hardest choices a mother/woman should have to make. The question is, which choice will she choose, and will it be the right one?

    If you are a huge Willow fan, like myself, you will not hesitate to get your hands on this book. It will leave you wanting more, and you will cheer, cry, and fear right along with Sophie and her life decisions. I can't wait to see what happens next. The next book can not be release fast enough!
