Fallen Angel by Heather Terrell


Ellie was never particularly good at talking to boys—or anyone other than her best friend and fellow outcast, Ruth. Then she met Michael.

Michael is handsome, charming, sweet. And totally into Ellie. It’s no wonder she is instantly drawn to him. But Michael has a secret. And he knows Ellie is hiding something, too. They’ve both discovered they have powers beyond their imagining. Powers that are otherworldly.

Ellie and Michael are determined to uncover what they are, and how they got this way . . . together. But the truth has repercussions neither could have imagined. Soon they find themselves center stage in an ancient conflict that threatens to destroy everything they love. And it is no longer clear whether Ellie and Michael will choose the same side.

The beginning of Fallen Angel was real slow. I kept reading because I thought it would get better. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get into it. Heather Terrell’s narration sounded too old for her main character, Ellie. The world that this novel was set in seemed underdeveloped.
Despite it being a slow read, I read it in one sitting. Terrell may have not written this book with the voice it could have been, but dang it was addicting!
I recommend this for people who enjoy paranormal books. They may not be my favorite, but they might be yours!

I reviewed this one too and it was one of the few books I gave 2 out of 5 stars. The romance was way too abrupt for me.
