Millennia ago, he fell from heaven for her. Can he face her without falling again?Fascinated with ancient civilizations, seventeen-year-old Mia Crawford dreams of becoming an archaeologist. She also dreams of wings--soft and silent like snow--and somebody trying to steal them.When a horrible creature appears out of thin air and attacks her, she knows Michael Fontaine is involved, though he claims to know nothing about it. Secretive and aloof, Michael evokes feelings in Mia that she doesn’t understand. Images of another time and place haunt her. She recognizes them—but not from any textbook.In search of the truth, Mia discovers a past life of forbidden love, jealousy and revenge that tore an angel from Heaven and sent her to an early grave. Now that her soul has returned, does she have a chance at loving that angel again? Or will an age-old nemesis destroy them both?Ancient history is only the beginning.
Mia is the perfect balance of teenager and old soul. She worries about her friends and school work, but also acts more mature than her age. She is set on an incredible journey of self reflection and learns more about herself than she imagined possible.
Michael is on a journey to redemption and tries hard to follow the rules set out for him, but it isn't easy. The attraction between Mia and Michael is one that spans many lifetimes and Mia doesn't understand it at first. It takes some revelations to happen for her to understand who she really is and what Michael means to her - both now and then. Their chemistry is sweet, yet intense.
You won't want to miss this story of redemption, second chances and love. I'm looking forward to seeing if this will turn into a series, because there is an awfully good twist near the end.
