Publisher Comments:

Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city filled with them. He's days away from becoming a full Guardian, and people around the world are already competing for the chance to be watched over by him. Everyone's obsessed with the Angels and the lucky people they protect - everyone except for Madison Montgomery.

Maddy's the one girl in Angel City who doesn't breathlessly follow the Angels on TV and gossip blogs. When she meets Jackson, she doesn't recognize him. But Jackson is instantly captivated by her, and against all odds the two fall in love.

Maddy is swiftly caught up in Jackson's scene, a world of glamour, paparazzi - and murder. A serial killer is on the loose, leaving dead Angels' wings for the police to find on the Walk of Fame. Even the Guardians are powerless to protect themselves in the face of this threat . . . and this time it's up to Maddy to save Jackson.

In a city that idolizes immortals like Jackson Godspeed he is the hottest angel around. He has always been in the spotlight and in a week he will be the youngest Guardian ever. Everyone in the world is lining up to pay so that he will keep them safe. Now that he is so close to his dream he has to be sure not to be distracted by the parties, paparazzi or the red carpets. What he never planned on was Maddy.

Maddy is seventeen-years-old and she is proving to be the distraction that Jackson doesn’t need right now. Maddy is everything Jackson is not used to, down-to-earth and not really into the angels. She sees Jackson for the person he is and not the angel everyone else sees and certainly not as a celebrity. Even with their vastly different backgrounds they have a connection that defies explanation. A connection that is threatened when something deadly tries to destroy their chance at love.

There are those that don’t worship the Angels and would love to see them brought down. Out there is a killer that is murdering Guardians one at a time. Now Maddy is going to have to find a way to save Jackson because he is now in the killer’s sights.




This story has a very different take on angels. It will also suck the reader in and won’t let them go until the very last page. The story line is very engrossing and the mystery in it will have readers wondering who is behind everything and just what will happen next. With several different suspects to choose from this one will leave the reader guessing until the very end. This story has some great twists and turns and the reader never knows where they will end up next. While it seems like a sizable book the pace is so fast that the reader will be at the end before they know it and will be dying to have the next book in this series. This is a young adult book that even adults will love.
