A destined prophecy: "The White Warrior will be one with Lucifer and God will weep."
Haunting visions and supernatural talents are the norm for the 16-year-old warrior, Jordan, and her mother Seeley. Together with their formidable angels they find themselves in peril when a wicked sorcerer is determined to fulfill the prophecy to his lord, Lucifer.
After an ominous vision of spirits inhabiting teenagers in a local school, Jordan enrolls in the social culture of teendom at Elma High to combat soulless demons. She encounters Mark, a mysterious new classmate, who is hell bent on keeping her unscathed from the forces of evil.
The battle between Heaven and Hell is escalating - and Earth is their battleground.

This was a good read and I enjoyed it.... I just can't put my finger on exactly why I didn't love it! This deals with Jordan and her mother, Seely, and the fallout, for them, from when Jordan's dad changed his allegiance from The Black Order! The Black Order don't take this lightly and try to do everything in their dark powers to make Jordan one of them. But Jordan, along with her mum and their guardian angels, fight back.
Even though this was an extremely fast paced and intense read, I found it lacking in something. I'm not sure what, but I know that I never really absorbed the story as much as I could have. I found it hard to like Jordan at times and found it hard to believe some of the things she did! Ex, she went to someones house, by herself, even though she knew this person to be evil! Of course, things happen after, but I just could believe that she would have done that! She seemed a little too savvy to do something so stupid.
Same with the rest of the characters. I never really liked any of them and didn't care too much about them. I felt like there was something missing here too! Maybe it was just me, but the overall feeling of the book was just Meh! I liked it, just didn't love it.
Now, the narration is a different story. Andrea Emmes reads extremely well. She has a variety of tones and cadences and knows how to draw a reader in. I loved her portrayal of Jordan and thought she really brought the story to life. it's just a pity I couldn't connect with it!
*I received a free coy of this but voluntarily reviewed it. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.*
Books are great! Audiobooks are better...Oh no he didn't!!
I thought Andrea Emmes. Did a fantastic job bringing this story to life. The characters sounded great and the narration brought the writing to another level.
I love books...I love storytelling. Audiobooks allow me to enjoy a great story while still being able to do my daily routine. Thanks Audible
Not really my kind of story. I found the transitions between scenes to be awkward. Sometimes day to day other times the listener was transported forward by weeks. There were also odd moments of silence in the narration which broke the flow. Ms. Constantine's imagery is very detailed, but it took forever for me to feel like I could connect with the main character (Jordan).
Yes. I really liked Ms. Emmes narration of children's stories. This one was okay. Ms. Emmes is wonderfully articulate in her narration. At times it was hard to differentiate between Seeley and her daughter Jordan.

I loved the action that this book provided and the emotional content of what was happening between mother and daughter and the eternal fight for Jordan's soul.
Jordan, as the main character. Emmes really knows how to embody a teenager. Having raised one myself, it was pretty spot on but with the added layers of pain, vengeance and rush in without thinking that kids face today when dealing with loss or other tragedies.
The author did a really great job of laying out the story with multiple characters and story points that were brought together quite nicely and the narrator did an excellent job of pulling it all together and bringing an extra layer of emotion and performance. Highly recommend this book.
I am addicted to books. Nothing makes me happier than crawling inside a good book.
This story went against my beliefs and I wasn't able to listen to it. So to be fair to the author and narrator I rated it 5 star. I hope that those other listeners are able to enjoy this book.
