Indie Book of the Week and Giveaway: Echo of an Earth Angel by Sarah M. Ross

This weeks Indie Book of the Week is a little something different than what I normally read. Yes it is in the YA genre but this time it is about angels, something I don't read too much of to be honest but this one was so different and fun that I just had to feature as this weeks book.

What book am I talking about?
Why Echo of an Earth Angel by Sarah M. Ross of course, book one in the Earth Angel Trilogy.

Not only do I have a great review for you but the author has also generously offered one lucky winner an e-book copy of her book so don't forget to enter the giveaway at the end of my review!! (Thanks Sarah!!)

18 year old Tessa Copeland barely survived the worst year of her life—in fact, it was a miracle. After making it through the tragedy that killed both of her parents, she’s left to pick up the pieces of her life. Combating the holes in her memory and the concern of her friends was hard enough, but a new talent threatens to destroy everything she’s trying to reclaim.
David Allegri didn’t mean to ruin Tessa’s life. She was the brightest soul he’d seen in centuries and he couldn’t let her die, so the fallen angel used his abilities to heal her—only he took it too far and changed Tessa forever. Now, he has to figure out a way to explain what’s happening to Tessa and somehow protect both of them from the consequences.

His choice made them targets for the Hunters, who will use any means necessary to capture their prey. Only a desperate plan can help them escape, and sacrifices will be made. Time is ticking. Will they make it, or will they be lost to the echoes of fate?

My Thoughts and Review:

This is the first book by Sarah that I have read and I can say that I really enjoyed it. I wasn't quite sure what to expect.

Having this be a book about angels, I wasn't positive I would love it. It seems that just like books about the fae, angel books and I have a love hate relationship. I either really like them or I really don't. There is hardly ever an in between for me.

This book surprised me with how well edited and written it was. Sometimes you don't always get that with an indie read. I hate to say that but it is true and thankfully this one was great.

The characters were very well developed. The storyline ran smoothly for me and kept me interested.

While the concept of the book might not be totally unique it is different from others out there and I really enjoyed it.

The ending definitely left me wishing I had the next book in the series so I could see what would happen next. There were a lot of twists and turns at the end that I just didn't see coming and I really loved that about it. I loved that it wasn't completely predictable and left me curious about the characters and wanting to know more about them.

If you like books about angels then I really think this is one that you should take a chance on.

Overall I think this was very well done and I give it 3.5 to 4 Stars!

(I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. It in no way influenced my review or book rating.)
