Publisher's Summary

"I have always existed, not just me but all of us, the unembodied spirits who wait to live."
Tess is an unborn spirit who is about to embark on a much-awaited journey into mortality, to a brand-new planet called Earth. She is chosen by the Eternals for an important mission and is put under a rigorous training by a half-human, half-lion seraph. This training exposes Tess to some of her darkest fears and insecurities. These experiences force Tess to work on her gift as a discerner of thoughts and reader of auras, thus helping her become one of heaven's most powerful angels.
But even angels falter, and deep inside her a gnawing fear is growing. Will she meet her soul mate in life? Will their love be strong enough to overcome the forgetting effects of the Veil? And is she prepared to take on the responsibility of keeping the most dangerous renegade and leader of the Fallen Angels at bay during mortality?

Niccum is a masterful storyteller ...

Imagine a world before Earth’s creation – imagine a world where there is nothing but spirits dividing themselves into clans and bonding together under the watchful eyes of the Eternals.  Imagine being given the choice of being a human and choosing to make a difference or not; taking the easy road or not; choosing to follow the First (Christ) or the Second (Lucifer).

All these decisions to make while also learning how to deal with various “gifts” such as the power of calming, discernment, reading auroras, mind reading, clairvoyance, wisdom, etc. Being a young spirit, Tess seeks her soul mate as well as finding her reason for being.  She knows she’s different from everyone but she has no clue just how different or why one of the Second’s followers has it in for her specifically.

Tess has a mission and it is dangerous but in order to be a powerful angel she must overcome her fears, doubts and accept her training.  Tess has one thing in her mind and that is finding her soul mate and hoping to find him yet again on earth should they choose to be born.  Doubts are Tess’s worst enemy. Can Tess be strong enough to complete the mission before her?  Make the right decisions? Be all that she needs to be for herself and her friends?

S.B. Niccum put a new spin on the fears, desires and doubts that face young adults.  She has the story take place in a unique location and builds the world slowly but in great detail drawing the listener in deeply.  She expresses the fears and doubts teenagers and young adults are faced with daily and brings them together significantly to prove that we’re not perfect, we all have doubts and fears.

I was impressed with Andrea Emmes, narrator.  She moved through this book effortlessly owning each and every character she gave voice to.  Her voice resonates with emotion and excitement as the story moves forward.  She never missed a beat and spoke clearly and with passion.  I loved listening to her.

The story itself was slow at first but then picked up momentum capturing the listener’s attention fully.  Niccum is a masterful storyteller and creator of worlds.  I enjoyed this story and look forward to hearing more in the series.

Amazing narration but boring story.

Unfortunately this story wasn't for me. I found it quite boring and dull. I had to put it aside for a while and go back to it to see is I liked it any better, but it didn't. I struggled to finish. Even though I didn't like it, the narration was amazing! Andrea Emmes never fails to deliver.She has such an easy going voice and it's easy to listen to. She always gives it her all and it shows.

*I received a copy of this for review, this in no way affects my thoughts.*
