This week’s selection is A Touch Mortal by 2011 debut author Leah Clifford. I have been hearing some good buzz about this book, and was attracted by the cover as I was browsing through Goodreads. This is a YA paranormal book about angels, and it’s the first book of a planned trilogy. Books about angels have been hit or miss for me but I loved Unearthly by Cynthia Hand, and A Touch Mortal looks like a winner as well. A Touch Mortal is due to be published February 22 2011. Not too long to wait!
Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings.
So long happily-ever-after.
Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven.
She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else’s game. Her heart is her own.
And that’s only the beginning of the end.
