Until Next Time: The Angel Chronicles, Book 1 Summary

Pages: 295
Release: February 1, 2012

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.

The Magic of Words

I have to say the name of this blog is definitely something I believe in.  And I understand our host, Katie, because I came from a small town where - I promise you - the only thing to do was watch the cars rust.  Not to mention, at least six months out of the year we were buried in snow.  So…I read.  Anything I could get my hands on, actually.  My Mom was a librarian so my sister and I were able to get all the new releases the second they came out - which was seriously cool.

There are a lot of people who love small towns, and I understand that it’s more peaceful and calm - less violence and crime, etc. - but the boredom factor is a forty on a scale of 1-10.  Without books I would’ve seriously thrown myself into a snow bank.  I loved everything - from YA’s to classics like Jane Austen - and the subject of angels was really big for me.  I can’t tell you how much I love the fact that the ‘winged ones’ have come back so strong lately.

The characters in Until Next Time - Emily and Matt - are a huge extension of that small town life in their own way.  They come from a world where there isn’t a whole lot to do either.  There are certainly more people, but they spend a lot of their time in school, training and waiting around - desperate to enjoy that taste of freedom that they’re about to experience full-force.  Of course, with freedom comes some seriously hard lessons.  The human emotions they run into are strong and brand new to them, which causes a whole lot of problems.  From love to fear to hate to heartache, they’re the innocents that are trying to keep their faith in one another in a world that’s filled with things that are trying to rip them apart.

I love the magic of books.  The fact that, as a reader, I can sit in a room and be taken on an adventure with the Matt’s and Emily’s of the world is amazing.  I can stand by the side of characters as they head back into history to see something truly monumental that we can only read about now; or, head into the future and find worlds that amaze and excite.  I can also fall in love through someone else’s eyes with the new ‘Romeo and Juliet’s’ of this world (or, you may call them the ‘Edward and Bella’s).  I can cheer for the hero and heroine, or despise the villain with everything I’ve got.  Boredom never comes from these creations, so being able to escape and become someone else for a while is a real ‘gift.’

Your whole life, even when you have the gray hair (yuck), and your own teenager in their bedroom complaining about how boring it all is, the characters of Lord Voldemort, Patch, Katniss Everdeen, Lisbeth Salander - even Mr. Darcy - will still be there for entertainment.  Not to mention a slew of new ones that are just waiting to be taken into the fold.  No matter what happens in time, or how bad things get, books are eternal.

To me, that’s the real ‘magic.’  No dragon or wand necessary - just an imagination!

Until Next Time, Everybody.
