Back Cover Blurb:
One peaceful afternoon Lillian finds two angels in her living room - wings and gloriole and all - telling her she is an Ivory. Half human and half angel she is born to fight for humankind and to guard the hellholes where the membrane between worlds is at its weakest.
She, an important warrior? Yeah, riiiight.
Life can make you fall
Raz might be an angel but he doesn’t do compassion. His job is to train her, to make her a leader and that’s what he will do. So Lillian will just have to suck it up when she discovers the deadly truth behind his words. When she does exactly that, he has to admit there’s more to the bookworm than he thought. Much more. But there’s one thing he shouldn’t forget – in his world feelings come with a price. Is he willing to pay?
Love will give you wings.
Herzer has developed a cast of characters that you can easily relate to. I love how they think and talk like real people. There was more than once that I couldn’t help but laugh at the main character, thinking ‘I’d so do that’. Even the angels aren’t stuck in some long ago timewarp. I must say, however, that I never thought I’d laugh at God, but… Well, just read it. You’ll see. It’s brilliant. Through these characters she looks at coming of age in a very intriguing way without it being the sole focus of her tale.
As a whole this story was past paced and exciting yet still personal. Herzer throws you for some completely unexpected loops on this journey but it is a journey that I wouldn’t miss for anything and one that I can’t wait to continue.
About the author:
I'm a 28 year-old author suffering from itchy feet which recently carried me to South Africa.
Much like my beloved travel bug, my love for words has always been there, but is thankfully a lot easier to satisfy. When I'm not off wandering my own imaginary worlds, I love to curl up on the couch and get lost in a good book.
Though I guess in the end books are just another form of traveling, seeing places and finding friends.
