Until Next Time by Amy Lignor (Review)
How does a girl choose between the one who steals her heart and the one who owns her soul?
Matt and Emily were created for a specific job. Raised and trained as the ultimate angel/warrior team, they are sent down to save, defend, judge and forgive, depending on the 'life' they've been assigned. What they don't realize is that the power of human emotions, such as love, anger, passion and fear can take over even the best of souls, causing them to make mistakes and follow paths that lead to confusion and heartache.
When the reason for their training is finally revealed, the angel/warrior team find themselves thrust into a world they know nothing about. Matt takes over the life of Daniel, a young man with a great deal of baggage. Emily becomes Liz, a girl living in a remote village who relies on nothing more than her own strength to survive. A violent storm erupts one night, and framed in the window of Liz's establishment is a frightening face. Let in by the soul of a Good Samaritan, the two visitors bring with them a past full of secrets that could literally change an angel's path and a warrior's plans.
From murder to redemption, this angel/warrior team must find a way to keep the faith they have in each other in a world that's ripping them apart.
First let me say that I like angel books. This one struck me as different because it was angels going to earth and living out the lives of souls who died before their time. This is almost like an experiment so the angels can figure out what humans are doing wrong on earth, why they are losing their way. I loved that concept.
The story flips between Emily and Matt with the other angels and also in their roles as Liz and Daniel. The back and forth was really great because it let you see how the angels were monitoring the humans and learning from them. And Emily has a lot to learn. In fact, the angels are having her read from a book and relive her experiences as a human. The way it's done makes you feel like you are right there with her.
I'm looking forward to the next adventure Emily goes on.
Just for fun:
Emily and Matt are partners, destined to be together in every life they live whether on earth or in heaven. How would you feel if you were partnered with someone like this?
