My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sykosa is like any other teen girl, beautiful, intelligent, and determined to make the most of any situation. Yet she also has secrets. Secrets that, at times, threaten to engulf her.

Until Next Time (The Angel Chronicles, #1)Until Next Time by Amy Lignor

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Emily is an angel, one who’s been created to save, judge, defend and forgive a human for the lives they live and any indiscretions they may commit. Being an angel isn’t easy for her. Throughout the lives she’s lived, she’s come to know what it’s like to be human, something she has a hard time dealing with as time goes by. Yet she’s determined to learn about the race the Lord has created in hopes of helping him and his beloved children further understand what makes humans who, and what, they truly are.

Her soul mate, Matt, has been trained alongside her. He’s the one who will fight for everything they believe in, a warrior who’s heart belongs forever to Emily. His skills as warrior have been honed to the point where he’d do anything to protect the woman, (or angel, in this case), he loves. Yet he knows that, first and foremost, he must follow through on the orders his Heavenly father has bestowed upon him. While each life he and Emily live gets more difficult than the one before it, he knows their doing so will give the angels and the entire Heavens a better understanding of the emotions and the battles humans go through every day.

The Priest and the PeachesThe Priest and the Peaches by Larry Peterson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Often times, faith is something almost all of us have a hard time in having. Believing in something you can’t see is testing, most especially for those of us who have strayed from the Lord’s path. Believing in his goodness, in the fact that he’ll lead us along the righteous path, well, it can honestly be trying. The reason for this is because for some, the trials and tribulations they face along the way hard from them to place their trust in a being they’re really not sure exists.

For the Peaches, both young and old, their lives haven’t been that easy. The children lost their mother and grandmother at a very young age and have dealt with the consequences of their deaths ever since then. When their father falls ill, the children realize it’s another blow of disappointment they’ve been dealt with – a disappointment none of them wish to deal with just yet. Despite this, they’re determined to band together in hopes of helping their father through his ordeal. Read on »
