Overview

2011 EPIC Ebook Award Finalist!

They've been coming here for thousands of years, using Earth as a sanctuary to escape threats from their own kind. Mankind knows them as angels, and one of them left a child upon her death to be raised as a human.

Raea is now a high school senior, and her life as a human is about to end. The crystal shard she bears is not a pretty pendant; it's a collective of powerful entities who chose her as their Keeper, a protector of one of the four shards that power a machine capable of destroying whole worlds. Those who desire the Starfire's power have sent an agent to find her, but she's too busy evading a nosy reporter ready to exploit her secret and dating a hot new foreign student to notice. Nevermind learning what she really is.

Only one person on Earth can help her, the last person she ever expected. But he's not from Earth. Life as a human would be so much easier.

    Makes Me Want Wings...

    The beginning seems to be really choppy (and I'm not sure if it was the writing or the editing) but it picked up pretty quickly. I ended up not being able to put it down. It's a good read, especially since it was free.

    Glad it was free

    The main character was quite annoying. She behaved like a middle schooler instead of a graduating high school senior. Also, her friendship with jess and linds wasn't very developed and I was a little curious about the Josh character. Overall, predictable book without good relationship developments except that between the main character and Elis.

    Pretty darn awsome

    This book was great. Some parts were a bit predictable, but it's nice to guess and get things right. Sci-fi, action,some feathers, and a romance. This first book was awsome. Too bad the others cost money.

    Overall, a good book.

    Beginning, a little confusing. Middle, material unsuited for young children (cussing, romance and the like). End, so touching its impossible not to like. You have got to read it!!!

    AMAZING

    This is by far one of my favorite books of all time. It is an excellent page turne. The characters are described in depth and I feel as though I can relate to them and their emotions. It is fairly straight-forward, but a word of caution: do not expect to completely understand the characters and the plot right away. If you wait, it will be explained.

    Amazing book! A little predictable as to who's really good and b

    Amazing book! A little predictable as to who's really good and bad in the story, but the author still kept me on edge the entire time. I bought the sequel immediately after finishing this book. Even though it is described as a teenage love story, as I young adult I absolutely loved it all the same. Definitely a must read.

    If You're a fan of James Patterson's MAXIMUM RIDE, Check out this story

    This story was engaging and got better as it went along. Could have used a little more story development in some areas, but ended up a good read. Some of the book editing got in my way; misspelled words and incorrect grammar, but overall a good read. I will continue with the series.
