- Why I chose this book: I love to read about angels, and as soon as I heard about this book, I knew that I had to check it out!
They’ve been coming here for thousands of years, using Earth as a sanctuary to escape threats from their own kind. Mankind knows them as angels, and one of them left a child upon her death to be raised as a human.
Raea is now a high school senior, and her life as a human is about to end. The crystal shard she bears is not a pretty pendant; it’s a collective of powerful entities who chose her as their Keeper, a protector of one of the four shards that power a machine capable of destroying whole worlds. Those who desire the Starfire’s power have sent an agent to find her, but she’s too busy evading a nosy reporter ready to exploit her secret and dating a hot new foreign student to notice. Nevermind learning what she really is.
Only one person on Earth can help her, the last person she ever expected. But he’s not from Earth. Life as a human would be so much easier.
I want to start off by saying that I love reading angel books. Angels aren’t your typical ethereal being. They just have something extra. (Or so I think.) But with that brings the problem that many writers write about angels, and the plots tend to be the same. But let me tell you, Starfire Angels showed an originality that you will not want to miss.
Completely addicting, Stargire Angel kept me turning pages until I was at the end and satisfied. (Or, not completely since there are more installments). We follow Raea Dahlrich as her world is changed and her senior year isn’t quite what she expected it to be. When you wake up one morning with wings, how normal can life be?
