Blurb (from Goodreads):
When Julia climbs into a flaming car to save a trapped child, she's left wondering why either of them survived. Then she learns that her father is the Archangel Gabriel, and that she is half human, half Archangel. With guidance from Michael, the most powerful Archangel, Julia sets out to discover her own history and explore her angelic powers. But her journey is cut short when an evil force, invisible to human and angel alike, tears her world apart. Now Julia must fight through her despair, harness her newfound gifts, and risk her very soul to stop the A'nwel and protect the family she never knew she had. What she doesn't know is that Archangels have secrets too."
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

This was an interesting angel story, but the pace was on the slow side.
I liked Julia in this and I felt really sorry for her. It must have been so hard for her to have no-one to support her, and to lose everyone who she loved. What an awful place to find yourself! She had obviously done quite well for herself somehow though, somehow managing to end up owning a restaurant? That is pretty good for a girl who was basically out on the streets on her own!
The storyline in this was pretty good, but the pace was really slow. Thankfully I enjoyed the story so the pace didn’t bother me too much, but it was still very slow. There were a couple of twists that were thrown in that I didn’t see coming, and Julia did become far more powerful than I expected.
There was a little romance in this one, but it wasn’t the main part of the story, and didn’t factor at all after a point.
The ending was pretty good, and also left us with a teaser as to what we can expect in the next book. I did enjoy this book overall, and it will certainly be interesting to find out what happens to Julia next.
