Zoe Jabril needs to devise a kick-ass plan to save the world ASAP. Otherwise, Armageddon starts the day she turns eighteen—and if that happens, everything is going to hell. Literally.

She could be any other 17-year-old attending parties and checking out cute guys—except she discovers her best friend is a Guardian Angel and the boy she crushes on is a Nephilim, both sent to protect her from the demons who want her dead.

Now Zoe has to deal with growing feelings toward the Nephilim, who spreads a strange electrical current through her body every time he touches her. And she’s under constant attack from Demons, trying to stop her from fulfilling the Prophecy: a girl will be born who will unite Angels, Nephilim, Fairies and Werewolves to battle evil. Then she has to control newly found talents if she’s to prevent the devil from escaping Hell.

About the Author

Kristin D. Van Risseghem grew up in a small town along the Mississippi River with her parents and older sister. Currently, Kristin lives in Minnesota with her husband and two Calico cats. She also loves attending book clubs, going shopping, and hanging out with friends. She has come to realize that she absolutely has an addiction to purses and shoes. They are her weakness and probably has way too many of both.

In the summer months, Kristin can usually be found lounging on her boat, drinking an ice cold something. Being an avid reader of YA and Women's Literature stories, she still finds time to read a ton of books in-between writing. And in the winter months, her main goal is to stay warm from the Minnesota cold!

Thrilling adventure filled with mystery, magical beings, new love, unbreakable friendships, high school uncertainty and exciting passion. Zoe Jabril is not your average everyday 17 year old girl... She is shy, sweet, loving and the possible savior of the world. The one being born to unite all walks of life and fight back the forces of evil. Her world changes in the blink of an eye when she is attacked on the way to school with her best friend.. (who also happens to be a guardian angel) and her eyes are opened to the world beyond the average. Loved every heart pounding and thrill inducing twist and turn in this heroic adventure. Looking forward to what happens next.

What made me decide to read this book was that I love action stories with angels and faeries. I never was much for werewolves, but I don't mind them in a story. What I didn't count on was that most of this story revolves around silly teenage girls finding romance and soulmates. None of the main characters had any kind of an edge to them, and were very predictable. Zoe seemed to be a "Marysue" who's biggest concern was whether or not she and Shey would be together forever. And if Kieran was an angel in disguise and her BFF since early childhood it seems unlikely he would develop romantic feelings for her. The faerie Sidelle reminded me of a silly 12 or 13 year old girl who wanted all the "dish" on her friends romance. She didn't seem like an ageless faerie who had been around since the beginning of time. The action scenes were okay, but I kept thinking that since these characters seemed to be aimed at an audience of 10 to 14 year old girls some of the action would have been a bit to graphic for them. The plot idea of a girl who was born to become a redeemer and bring the "Enlightened" together to fight evil was intriguing, but the actual plot seemed more focused on teenybopper drama and romance. Zoe should have been no older than 14 by the way she acted. The "soulmate" thing was cheesy and immature in this story. And the whole explanation of how werewolves find their soulmates seemed ridiculous and even horrifying.
