Seventeen-year-old Gabriel Adam is used to relocating a lot. When a mysterious assassin burns his home to the ground, Gabriel’s father reveals the truth of why they are always on the move: Gabriel is one of four archangels, born human and sent to stop Armageddon. Now Gabe must set aside dreams of attending NYU to try to fulfill his newly discovered role.
Racing against time, Gabe and his father travel to the English university town of Durham, hoping the last surviving member of an ancient religious sect can guide them. With the assassin in pursuit, Gabe must shoulder the weight of his new life and an impossible destiny as protector of the entire human race.
That cover is really pretty, I have to say. It’s angelic but at the same time striking.
Initially I thought this was one of those typical paranormal-angel novels where there’s forbidden love and lots of drama and whatnot. But that isn’t the case with this book. I think it’s more urban fantasy than paranormal? And for once, it has a male lead. Very interesting. Am really excited to check this one out.
