    Loved It!

    Megan Barnett is still reeling from her clash against Satan. In the blink of an eye, she's lost her two best friends - Matt, who died for the noble cause and Erin, who blames her for Matt's death. The loss of both deals her heart a heavy blow, but she knows that sometimes all things happen for a reason. Even if she can't quite understand why.

    She now has a cute boyfriend, an angel, no less, by her side. Surely, that counts for something. Yet deep inside, she knows that nothing can replace the emptiness she feels inside for the loss of her best friends.

    Guy Matson, a fallen angel who's fallen in love with Megan, has been entrusted with her safety. A task that isn't as easy as it sounds. Malignant spirits have begun to resurface, intent on claiming the armament that is, unbeknownst to him, in Megan's possession. Trying to hold up his end of the bargain, he does his best to ensure that his new girlfriend is protected at every moment. Yet little does he know, Satan has other plans for them both.

    Acquiring a new best friend, Megan tries to understand the paranormal world that now surrounds her. Her mind, at times, cannot fathom that there are angels and bad entities clashing over her with every step she takes. Yet deep inside, she knows she has the upper hand against Satan. For the moment, anyway.

    As her life starts spinning out of control and she finds herself in hot water at every turn, she realizes she needs all the help she can get. With Guy at her side, anything is possible. But only if they can stay alive long enough to complete the mission that has been set forth before them.

    I technically should have started reading the first book of this series, but in all honesty, it's not necessary. Sure, it's always good to start at the beginning, but this is the type of series where no matter what you book you start with you, you won't get lost while you're reading it. E. Van was able to fill us in on what transpired in the first book with subtle hints in this second book. I honestly enjoyed every minute of it and look forward to reading the first book soon as well as what transpires next in this series. It's that good!

    Earth Angel by E. Van Lowe
    Release Date: December 8th, 2011
    Publisher: White Whisker
    Page Count: 188
    Source: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review

    Though Earth Angel is the second book in the Falling Angels Saga series, it works fine for a stand-alone novel because the previous book's situation is explained really well throughout it. This is both a great reminder for those who've read the prequel, and a nice catching-up for those, like me, who haven't.

    Megan's special — it's the only reason why demons are chasing after her and her possessions — but she doesn't know exactly why. All she wants is to live life as a normal teenager, one who does well in school and can just have a few moments alone with her super-hot boyfriend, Guy, without being interrupted, but it just so happens to be that said boyfriend is a fallen angel, one who's clipped his wings just to be on Earth with her, and that itself comes with tremendous limitations. The angel council won't leave her and Guy alone; they seem to want to do everything to split the two up. Megan and Guy love each other too much for this to happen, she knows, but with the responsibilities piling up on the both of them, she wonders if the angels just might be the end of her only meaningful relationship...

    Megan's voice is straightforward, I'll give it that. But it's also incredibly choppy and not teenage-girl-like. I know Lowe attempts to make her sound really witty, but that falls flat — her opinions are actually quite mediocre and she has a tendency of stating the obvious. She is relatable in terms of her high school dilemmas and boyfriend woes, which is an indicator of strong characterization, but her voice is just weak. Lowe's style itself just doesn't flow very well, making the read pretty rough. I did, however, like her friends. Angel and human, they all are portrayed beautifully; definitely the ideal gaggle of acquaintances, ones that I want, myself!

    The action is fast and the story fast-paced, which I kind of liked. Scenes aren't dragged out and there isn't much suspense, so the plot progresses nicely, and the reader doesn't get bored. It, however, doesn't pack that big of a punch as Lowe would like it to. I mean, it deals with Satan, the Underworld, and forbidden love, but for me, it wasn't all that poignant. The story kept moving forward, so yes, I did keep reading, but Earth Angel's story isn't one that's going to stick with me.

    I enjoyed Earth Angel fairly because it has some original paranormal scenarios involving angels and their forbidden territory on Earth, as well as because it is a quick read. However, I won't say it's really anything remarkable. Both the awkward writing style and lack of conviction make this one kind of dull. I will give Lowe props to an inventive creation of a paranormal world, as well as a pretty realistic high school setting, but the stale dialogue and failed attempt at making everything sound so dramatic, make the novel overall a pretty unmemorable read.

    Stephanie Loves: "'No one should push their problems off on others. It's cowardly. You're not a coward, are you? ... If more people shouldered their own problems instead of trying to pass the buck and push them off on others, the world would be a much better place.'"

    Radical Rating: 7 hearts - Not without flaws, but overall enjoyable

    A review copy was provided for an honest review. Earth Angel is

    A review copy was provided for an honest review. Earth Angel is a quick and fun read. I liked the sequel a little more than the first book because E. Van Lowe introduces a couple of new characters who are very interesting and entertaining. I felt like there was much more story and character development going on and many different things happening that kept it fresh.

    The sequel is set shortly after Boyfriend From Hell (Falling Angels Saga); jumping to when Megan's already recuperated from her battle with the devil and her and Guy are finally a real couple. Megan is still coping with the loss of her best friend Matt who was also her betrayer for which she still has residual mixed feelings about. She tries reaching out to Erin but it seems she's strayed from her normal behavior and into darker territory. But Megan could not be any more happier since she and Guy are now official and they have a shot at a normal relationship--or as normal as can be with an angel. Unexpected problems arise that threatens to tear them apart along with some buried secrets, lies, and hidden agendas.

    I felt kind of let down with Megan because in the first book she's a go-getter whose hell bent on taking down Satan himself to save her mother but in this book she kind of digresses into a scared girl who struggles to deal with everything that's presented. However, towards the end she starts being the more confident version of herself that I really liked seeing in the first book. Once again I enjoyed seeing Guy but his scenes are so few and far between, you see other secondary characters more than you see him--the cover is a little misleading in that aspect. But I loved the introduction of Harrison--Guy's angelic friend, he's arrogant, attractive, witty, and has an Australian accent to boot--he's just so awesome! You also get to see more of Maudrina whose become Megan's best friend and I loved reading the parts with them together--just like in Boyfriend From Hell they have there delightfully comical moments.

    In Earth Angel Megan starts to shed her nerdy reputation and moves up in status due to her former association with Matt who was part of the Poplarati but it's not all its cracked up to be when she gets put in a strenuous situation that can easily destroy the popularity she's just gained. To top it off it appears she hasn't seen the last of Hell when its residents come looking for her. Between her social life, school, boyfriend drama, and otherworldly beings she has a lot on her plate. Earth Angel has its ups and downs but overall it's a nice amusing paranormal read. It earns a solid 4/5 star* rating. I'm looking forward to Heaven Sent (Falling Angels Saga).

    Oh my! Earth Angel is even better! It picks up where Boyfriend From Hell ended and doesn't slow down!




    Megan, having dealt with the aftermath of defeating Satan, is trying to put her life back to normal. However, Erin is not speaking to her. And although Guy has declared his love, he reveals a secret that could destroy their budding relationship. And, as if that wasn't enough, Megan must also deal with the fact that she's being stalked...by a demon!




    Earth Angel is a richer experience. We get to know the characters in depth and it is very rewarding. Mr. Lowe's paints the characters as much more complex in this installment. And that, coupled with the action of the story, made for a more satisfying read. Megan learns more about herself and about true friendship and loyalty. I also love that she attacks problems so logically - like a true mathematician. :)




    Earth Angel is equally as tense and action-packed as Boyfriend From Hell, as Megan and her cohorts must figure out a way to deal with the demon stalker. And they must also deal with plain old high school drama. 




    Again, I liked the combination of realistic high school issues intertwined with the paranormal. Fallen angels, Nephilim, demons, plus the poplarati all combine for a great read. 




    Earth Angel was a deeper story and I think even more enjoyable. I'm anxious to read the conclusion to this series!
