In an instant he has what he's always wanted, a chance to prove his worth to Lucifer, the lord of this world. When given the simple task of distracting a human girl from her celestial guardians, he knows a quick success will win him honor and glory.
Emma finds herself inescapably drawn to the mysterious, beautiful, intelligent, and surprisingly inexperienced boy assigned to the seat next to her. Although he seems interested in her she knows it won't last once he finds out about her family's sordid past. The cancer that killed her mother also destroyed the church and the town. She has to find the truth to save her family and everyone else in Inspiration.
As Zachary becomes intrigued by the girl he's charged with destroying, Emma finds comfort with the new boy who provides a safe refuge from the town that's abandoned her.

You will not want to stop listening to this one!
I absolutely would suggest that this book be moved to the top of your to do list! From the very start until the last word, I found myself drawn into the story of Zachary and Emma. Zach's grit and determination to be the best, Emma's selfless nature and love for all around her... You would think that he would crush her with his purpose. However this is not necessarily the case! I love that they are each able to balance one another out, and that their journey not only changes their outlook on eternity, but also those around them. Everyone wants a love like that, to stand the test of time and to be a beacon of change or hope. In Zach and Emma's case however, neither one was looking for it, nor did they really want it and for that reason, it's all the more precious!
I can't really say that I have read another book like Inspiration. I don't like to compare books to one another. I personally love to read each book as its own entity, and take it for what it is. I do like that there are connections to religion and the drive of nearly all in the story to become someone new - be that good or bad.
POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT......I will try to be vague here.
My favorite part of Inspiration would have to be at the very end, when all of the house mates are attempting to work together for a common goal. But in reality.... several people are working in secret unbeknownst to the rest. There is mystery, confusion, drama, pain, fear, love, excitement.... all in the span of a couple of chapters. It was very exhilarating.
Absolutely! There wasn't a moment that I truly felt was a good stopping point. The story wanted to be told, and I was as usual - angry when real life got in the way and I had to stop for a little while.
