Goodreads Summary: Seventeen-year-old Teagan McNeel falls for captivating Garreth Adams and soon discovers that her crush has an eight-point star etched into the palm of his right hand-the mark of an angel.

But where there is light, dark follows, and she and Garreth suddenly find themselves vulnerable to a dark angel's malicious plan that could threaten not only her life, but the lives of everyone she knows, and now, she is torn between one angel's sacrifice and another angel's vicious ambition.

Divinely woven together, Angel Star takes readers on a reflective journey when one angel's sacrifice collides with another angel's vicious ambition in a way that is sure to have readers searching for their own willpower.

Review: I'll come right out and say it...Angels have become my new very favorite figures in the paranormal world. There is so much there to work with! When I think of Angels I think of light and goodness but there is always that edge when I remember Lucifer himself was Angel of God before his betrayal...

Angel Star focuses on a specific kind of Angel, Guardian Angels that are each assigned to protect a specific human. What happens when a Guardian Angel takes his guardianship to a whole new level or, on the other hand, abandons his duties all together out of greed and a quest for power?

Seventeen-year-old Teagan McNeel finds herself in the middle of a battle between light and dark...and the new boy at school Garreth Adams seems to be right in the middle of it. After a tragic accident Teagan must rely on Garreth to get past her sorrow and get to the bottom of the changes that are occurring around her.

There is a little twist towards the end of the story and the final pages definitely pave the way for a sequel. It is obvious that Teagan has more challenges ahead of her...the question is will she choose the right path?

I really enjoyed this well written story and it kept me turning the pages each time I sat down to read. You know those books that have you putting off all the other things you "should" be doing? This is one of them!

Appropriate for ages 12 and up!
