Overview

After a fatal hit and run accident, Ella Monroe fears that she’s lost more than her beloved parents. Horrifying visions of a past life and a disturbing voice in her head have psychiatric professionals convinced that she’s lost her sanity as well. But when Kale--a dark and handsome stranger with a mysterious past--reveals the true meaning of her visions and the tremendous power she wields through them, Ella must come to terms with the devastating truths of her own past, while eluding an ancient Dark Prince who seeks to control not only her future, but all of mankind’s, by means of abilities that Ella is only beginning to understand.


Enter the shrouded world of an age old battle between an ancient race known as the Immortals and their bitter enemy Laurent, the so-called Dark Prince, who commands an army of half-breed vampires known as Chorý. Both sides have been desperately searching for the prophesied emergence of the Arc, a clairvoyant with unparalleled power to recall the past and a soothsayer with clear vision into the future.


The Council of Immortals has sworn to protect the Arc, whom they have identified as young Ella Monroe, a college freshman from Virginia living quietly and unaware of her powers or her past. But a renegade Chorý has other plans for the protection of a girl he has loved through the ages. Can Kale convince Ella of who she is, what she is destined to become, and what he once meant to her? Is he truly the best protector to shield the world from the devastating misuse of her powers that Laurent is bent on controlling? Or will the forbidden love they share and Kale’s cursed condition as a retched and hated Chorý be used against them both?


This paranormal romance told from the heroine’s perspective builds in intensity and intrigue to a finale you won’t see coming. Heart pounding action mixed with heartwarming friendships and heartbreaking romance will leave you breathless and begging for more.

Excerpt:

“I want to untie you, but I don’t want to regret doing so. Can we agree that everyone will behave?” I looked at Kale, but all I received was a shrug and another grumble.
Jace’s blue eyes were glued to Kale. “Ella, when I am untied, I will do whatever I can to take you back to the Council. I won’t have this creature infect you.”
Kale straightened up and moved closer to us. “Over my dead body.”
Jace’s slow, chilling smile revealed his white teeth. Though it was beautiful, it freaked me out.
“Then it should be easy, Nosferat, seeing as how your heart no longer beats.” Jace looked at Kale as if he would attack the first chance he got.
At this rate, I would never be able to get Kale and Jace to work together. Maybe Kale was right. We might be better off fending for ourselves against Laurent.
“You mistake the fact you are still alive for weakness on my part, but I warn you that as soon she sees you are not a necessary factor for her survival, I will finish what we started years ago, Vesco,” Kale spat, with such malice that halfway through his words I turned around to face him, not at all liking what I saw. His face was now plagued by hard lines, and his eyes, though they were always dark, were darkened with loathing. I hardly recognized him. I didn't want to believe Kale would truly kill Jace or anyone for that matter.
“Stop, Kale, you wouldn’t,” I whispered. I searched his face for the Kale I knew. I understood the Council and vampires were enemies, but I couldn't see Kale killing Jace. It was probably my naivety that pushed the idea that Kale was harmless.
“Yes, he would, Ella,” Jace said, pulling my attention back to his blue eyes. “It’s what he is—a murderer fashioned only to steal what humans cannot live without and to spread his disease. He was created by the Dark Prince. No matter how long he tries to deny his nature by drinking from rats and squirrels, he will always be a threat to you and all others. Even more so because he can walk in the light.

Few Are Angels was really well written and I could clearly picture all the characters and their surroundings which I think is really important in a novel. I loved reading about Ella. I could relate to her and wonder with her about what was going in her world. Lately in lots of YA genres the main character can be quite whiny and annoying. Thankfully, Ella isn't one of them. She just wants to live a normal life without the visions and the voice in her head.

I thought this was a great read. It was fresh and different from many similar stories, and I thought the author had come up with a fresh and original concept. The characters were strong and vivid, and I can’t wait to see more of them. Despite the romance seeming a little rushed, it was well-written and sweet. I became immersed quickly in the world of Ella and Kale, and thought that it was a wonderful novel, from an author to watch out for! Now I just need to wait for the next one to come
http://www.pageturnersblog.com/2012/09/few-are-angels-review.html - Michelle A.
I LOVED this story! I find myself not very good at writing a description of the story because I SO do not want to reveal too much. However, this story is action packed. It’s an emotional roller coaster ride learning right along with Ella about her past life, and how much Kale meant to her in that life. She does not want to make the same mistake as before. There is a little bit of a love triangle. This story flowed from the beginning to end, with a powerful cliffhanger.

    Great Paranormal Romance. I didn't expect what goes on. Very unique. A Must Read!!

    I liked Few Are Angels. I really liked the different spin on this particular paranormal. It took me almost halfway to know what anyone was, as far as the supernatural goes. Which is a good thing, it kept me intrigued.

    It was action packed, and sure takes you on an emotional rollarcoaster of a ride. The character development was very well done. I see great things to come from this author.
    I did find a few slow spots, mainly taking us through Ella’s first day on the job at the grocery store. I didn’t need those details, as nothing at all happened, and was a whole part that could have easily been cut. But it does not take away from the story at all.
    This book is not what you think it is by the title, so will say that now. But that’s ok, was a great surprise. I found the new take on this tale quite entertaining. I was pulled into this story along with Ella.

    Her visions were vivid, and I would be scared to death if I had them.
    We get to learn about Ella’s life, and her past lives, as she has visions of all her past lives, and even spent some time in a mental institution because she would have blackouts and what they called hallucinations. She is called an Arc, and is being hunted down by Laurent, and evil man. Kale is someone who loves her, and wants to protect her, but Jace also is sent to protect her, as her Guardian.

    There is a lot more to it, but will let you discover more on that.
    I really liked Kale, not only is he super hot, but I can tell he has some very deep feelings for Ella all through her past lives, and even Ella can feel that connection with him. They are true soul mates.

    Here is a part with Kale:

    “Why are you going to the window?”
    His smile was mischievous and sexy as he opened the window and jumped out.
    I squealed in surprise, ran over to the window, and looked outside just in time to see Kale—a blur—run into the woods.
    “What the hell?” I whispered, shocked and allured by his speed. My stomach trembled at the thought of how powerful he truly was, but excitement pushed it away. My hand still tingled from his touch, and I couldn’t wait to see him again.


    Alex is a great character, and I found him very sweet and a great friend to Ella.

    Not sure what I feel for Jace, will let you find out about him, he was a mystery to me for the first half of the book for sure.

    I won’t say more, so not to spoil anything, as I found the not knowing anything going into this book, was a plus, it kept it really interesting for me.

    5 out of 5 stars. It’s a great story, and I highly recommend it.

    I received this book for a book tour with Bewitching Book Tours, for my honest review.

    Nice read

    This book is good. The characters are well written and the "love" part of the story isn't too mushy! I hate when writers do that. I actually attended one of the colleges in the book!! My favortie character is Kale of course! He is so sexy!! I can't wait to read the rest of the series. I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 cause there are a few errors I caught.

    If you don't like cliffhangers, then this book is not for you.

    If you don't like cliffhangers, then this book is not for you. I'm a big supporter of indie authors, but I honestly don't understand how this book got such a high rating. The underlying storyline is a good one, but I had a hard time following it, and found myself going back and re-reading a lot. As much as I want to know what happens in the next book, I'm not sure it's worth the purchase, especially if the second book ends as poorly as this one did.

    255 pages, free paranormal

    This free, 255 page paranormal book was not for me. I did not realize it was paranormal, until I was about five pages in. Since I have a few, very few, paranormal books, which did appeal to me, lately. I thought I would give this one try, nope, it was not going to happen, still boring. Gave it another 100 pages and I was ready to pluck out my own eyeballs and perform brain surgery on myself. This book is extremely poorly edited. So much so, it was annoying. It is also a bit gruesome. There are many adult themes. Even though the title may suggest, Christian religion, it is not. Nor is it chick lit. There was some inane romance, but the characters were so unlikable, I hoped they would get together and annoy each other to death. Totally unreal. I did not like this book at all. Having food poisoning is more fun. For adults,but written as if if for juveniles.

    I loved Inger Iversen¿s idea about a girl who could see the past

    I loved Inger Iversen’s idea about a girl who could see the past. What it seemed to boil down to, I believe, was her past lives. Who wouldn’t want to know that? Once I’d read the prologue, I was really intrigued. The villain seemed pretty evil and I couldn’t wait for him to bring his threats to the front. Though this portion of the story focuses mostly on Ella who’s attempting to build a new life after the death of her parents. The characters were a little vague in their personalities though I found Mia entertaining. That girl was all kinds of spunk and psychological damage and was able to carry a few of the slower moments in the middle.

    With “Few Are Angels” it was the romantic scenes where the author really shone, I thought. Her sentences flowed wonderfully and she was able to create a very intimate atmosphere for the reader. I can easily see why people would fall head over heels for Kale and Ella. The romantic novelty rarely goes out of style and I think Inger Iversen hit this home.

    My only ticks might be the overuse of melodrama in the beginning and the random unnecessary details or repetitive information like how her laptop wasn’t unpacked in two different chapters or sometimes Ella would think something and in the next paragraph she’d say it out loud, kind of thing. But that last bit might just be me being twitchy.

    All in all romance fans will love this story. I did buy the second book on Kobo because as I said, I want to see how well Laurent carries through as the bad guy. Guess I’m weird that way.

    Let me start by saying, sweet mother, this is a pretty darn good

    Let me start by saying, sweet mother, this is a pretty darn good read. I will also start off by saying this story has a very sad, tragic beginning. I literally couldn’t help but feel so sorry for Ella. She is in utter pain from the loss and then her “mental” issues are really not helping. But what would you do if you had a special ability that everyone took for a mental breakdown? I mean, how do you explain that and actually get people to believe you.

    Now, I like Ella. Despite the fact that Ella is trying to grieve and put her life back on track, she becomes caught up in a mystery that she can’t deny she is part of, even if she isn’t sure how she is a part of it. In her attempt to put her life back together, things start happening and she is put to the test, not just for her mental capacity with trying to get through it but actually trying to survive something she really isn’t prepared for.

    Now, I know I have some past “aversions” to the big V word, those vampers will get you every time lol but this is slightly different. The story is not all based on your typical vampire and the way the story unfolds is quite cool. And it definitely gets more climatic as things are unfolding and Ella is figuring things out. And the writing definitely has something to do with that. If it weren’t written well, you would just be sad. Instead you’re gunna have multiple reactions, or at least I did. I wasn’t stuck in Ella’s depression I was intrigued at what was taking her mind off of it.

    And lets talk hotties! First there’s Kale, oh boy. The broken, torn, bad boy every girl dreams of lusting over and trying to fix! And Alex is that perfect boy next door who’s gotten HAWT! Lol so do you go for the boy who’s been your best friend for ages, knows your secrets and has your back, no matter what OR the the boy who is mean, and cold but is there to protect you and every once in a while makes your heart drop! HA!! You’re gunna have to read and pick a team!

    All in all, there’s so much to this story and I know the next chapter is gunna be good- if not better than this one, so I can’t wait to read it! I really enjoyed it! I definitely wanna read the next book Big 4.5 PAWS from me!!

    Um...wow. So not what I was expecting. With the title being Few are Angels, I was thinking it was about angels. *Spoiler* it's not. I loved this book. Ella pretty much thinks she's crazy by having "hallucinations", but turns out she's an Arc. She's meets a dark, mysterious Chorý named Kale. She learns more about what the "hallucinations" are and what her feelings for Kale mean and who he is. My only disappointment is that I have to wait to find out what happens in the next book.

    Ella can see the past. I'm not sure if it's ALL the past or just her own. She seems to me to be a beacon for trouble. It's almost as if she looks for it, as she follows unknown guys into the woods.
    The conflict in Ella's heart is heart wrenching really. She'd been through so much already. Mia's attitude was a bit irritating, but very easy to understand once you know her story. I'm sure everyone of us knows a Mia.
    I was iffy about Kale... His role was a bit Twilightish. He reminded me a lot of Edward Cullen.. Minus the sparkles. I think the twilight fans will absolutely love this book.
    I haven't figured out what to make of Jace, but I'm sure I haven't seen the last of him or the council.
    This book is well written. The plot is solid. There's very little if any holes in it. The characters are written in such a way that you can't help but lost in the story that is woven in your mind's eye.
    This story will grab you at unexpected moments, and cause your heart to race more than once. I honestly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading book two.
    I give this book 4 of 5
