Very recently I was honoured with the opportunity to read a book from new author, Adrienne Enfinger.

This fantasy themed book was very easy to read and flowed quite well. I struggled to find my feet with it initially as I didn’t quite get the budding romance between our heroine and her ‘Knight in Shining Armour’ but once I got past the first few chapters then I found I couldn’t put it down and wanted to know how it ended. Over a few days I had completed the 240 page book.

The story starts with an introduction to the books heroine, Asteria. For years she has struggled with her parents sudden death in a car accident and despite having support from her close friend, Kendra and her Uncle Jethro then she feels lost and thinks that the only way out is to end her life. Desperate and alone, she finds herself teetering on the edge of a roof on a very high building it belongs to. It is here that we first meet her. She is ready to end it all and the writing easily conveys how dark a place she is in at that moment. That is until a handsome stranger comes to her rescue; Micah is her Guardian Angel and is sent to prepare her for battle between the good and bad. Almost at once she is drawn into a world she never knew existed and shown where her true path leads. For once in her life, she has a purpose and she adapts willingly to all that is throw her way.

I love a good romance in a story and this book delivers. I love the chemistry between Asteria and Micah, although I was quite taken back by how quickly their romance progressed and hoped for more of a ‘will-they-wont-they’ struggle as we read into the story. It was obvious from chapter 1 that these two would get it together, even though it was impossible for Micah initially because it is forbidden for angels and humans to become romantically involved. Some parts of the story felt fast paced; even too fast paced at times which made some areas feel a bit patchy and empty. I would have liked to have ventured more into Kendra and her Grandmothers characters; maybe looked further into the past and shown what Asteria’s life on the streets had been like, etc, but I am hoping that this and the fact that the ending seemed left open that its left an opportunity for a second book. It would be good to see how the author could progress the story from here. Not a bad read at all.

Would definitely recommend.

Rating – 4 out of 5 Stars.
