After a night out turns fatal, a misunderstanding with the Archangel Michael presents Angel with a chance at Eternal Life: the opportunity to earn her wings and one day become an archangel herself.
Angel is given the task of protecting her charge, trainee detective, Joshua Walsh. There’s no denying the attraction between Angel and Joshua, only Michael has pretty strict rules: no drinking, no drugs, and certainly no relationships with humans. Thankfully, she’s got other things to deal with, like trying to convince Joshua New Orleans has a serial killer who is preying on other angel potentials like herself.
The characters are great (especially Cupid!), and the story doesn’t drag at all. There are lots of twists and turns in the story to kept it interesting. And it’s soooo unpredictable!
This book is packed full of action and vivid details. I seriously couldn’t put it down! To give you an idea, I even stopped reading Lady Midnight (by Cassandra Clare) for a couple of days just so I could enjoy this book properly! That’s how good it is.
This is the first book in the Louisiangel series, and I can’t wait to read the second one (which is already out by the way). I would class this as Young Adult / Urban Fantasy series. Yeah, that sounds about right.
And if you think it’s a religious book because it involves angels, that’s not the case at all! The author gives us a snapshot about the angels’ background and how they protect people on Earth, but it doesn’t really have a religious feel to it. It feels more like an Urban Fantasy book than anything else.
If you like Young Adult and Urban Fantasy books you NEED to get your hands on this book!
I highly recommend Angel in Training by C.L. Coffey! One of my favourite books of the year so far.
