A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink
Summary via Goodreads:
When her parents are murdered before her eyes, sixteen year-old Helen Cartwright finds herself launched into an underground London where a mysterious organization called the Dictata controls the balance of good and evil. Helen learns that she is one of three remaining angelic descendents charged with protecting the world’s past, present, and future. Unbeknownst to her, she has been trained her whole life to accept this responsibility. Now, as she finds herself torn between the angelic brothers protecting her and the devastatingly handsome childhood friend who wants to destroy her, she must prepare to be brave, to be hunted, and above all to be strong because temptation will be hard to resist, even for an angel.
Michelle Zink masterfully weaves history with paranormal romance to create a gripping tale of love and betrayal.
Why am I looking forward to A Temptation of Angels? I adore Michelle Zink's Prophecy of the Sisters trilogy and her writing style is just gorgeous. On top of that, I think that this is a refreshing take on the angel trend and it's really caught my attention. Lastly, I'm loving the cover (although I'm not sure if it's the final cover or not, I'm sure it'll be gorgeous either way).
A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink is published by Dial Books for Young Reads, a part of Penguin Group, and its expected publication date is March 20, 2012.
So, what are you waiting on this week? :D
Also, I'm not quite back--which is why I haven't gotten around to replying to comments just yet--but I will be by Thursday at the latest!
