I crave him. I need him. I love him.
And that is the reason, we will all die...

The story was enjoyable in general, but I probably won't be buying the second book. The writing, while not bad, was very juvenile, as were the emotions of the characters. I do understand that they were all juveniles, but it was a bit ridiculous. The story also came to no resolution, and apparently will be continued in the second volume. This is a no-no in my estimation. If authors want to continue a series with additional adventures using the same characters, that is great, but each book should be complete in itself. That does not happen here, so be prepared to buy all three books to actually finish the one.
When I discovered Audible it was like discovering love :-) I love receiving codes and in return I post reviews. Wife, and mom of two,
I really love stories about angels and demons. I can remember one year looking for every angel/demon audiobook I could find. At the time I found everyone I could and went on an angel and demon binge. Then I couldn't find anymore and I felt as if I was going through withdrawals. I wish this story had been available at that time. I was fortunate to have stumbled across this audio and the others that go with this story. I absolutely LOVE this story!
Author Lola StVil has written a brilliant an absolutely a wonderful story. The characters are fun, and you find yourself bonding with them almost immediately. I love all the details she included in this story like snaps, ports, Samson string, holders, and so much more. Lola did a perfect job planning what she wanted the readers/listeners to read or hear. The story is especially fascinating and you cant help but become immersed in the story.
Emmy Baxter is a fifteen year old girl, a mortal girl. She lives in New York City and believes she's a product of rape. She attends the Luingston Academy on a partial scholarship. My heart aches for Emmy but others as well. Emmy ends up falling in love with Marcus, the head guardian angel. Lola has written the story to where Emmy never seems to get what she wants. Emmy does have a lot of pressure and commitments she has to uphold as do the angels.
I also love the demon angels, such as Rage, Chaos, and the others even if they are trying to kill the guardians, the humans, and Emmy. Don't get me wrong I do feel Emmy is extremely strong for a fifteen year old mortal girl. I do think she does ask too many questions, puts her self at risk, and causes problems for the guardians. I love the teenage angels, Marcus, Rio, Jay, Ameana, who can be a real b.... most of the time but she has her reasons and then there's Miku, who we find out more about in book 3. Miku and Rio are twins, teenagers, and also guardian angels. They love each other because they're twins and among other reasons. Once again, Lola StVil has created a wonderful series about angels, demons, a sage, and wow, so much details that you cant stop until you finish the story but then you'll immediately start book two.
The narrators Jennifer O'Donnell and Adam Chase did an outstanding job with their performance of this story. Although, there are times that I feel Ameana's voice is to deep, sort of manly but other than that, it's perfect. The two worked great together and you can tell when you listen. You really will enjoy listening to this story and you're definitely missing out if you don't. The two narrators really shine with this story and the accents of all the characters are extremely enjoyable to listen to.
For Lola, I hope one day you get a chance to read this. I want to tell you to reach high because your stories are worthy of a great publisher, maybe Harper Collins. I think that publishing company is a great one. I've listened to the first three audios that you've written. I must say they are worthy of being published. I can't wait to listen to book four. I am looking forward to it and I cant wait.
No because I'm not going to read the next book so I won't recommend
I love listening to books, I thought It was a bit odd when it changed but I adapted. I thought they did a great great job
No I'm good with just listening to this one
I wish the two main charters didn't just fall in love over one look 😕 and it went to the extreme for no real reason. If there was more substance to their love I would read the next book but as is it was too much.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
