The stranger’s cloak had fallen back, and with it, a long, white, blood-stained wing.
When Melaia, a young priestess, witnesses the gruesome murder of a stranger in the temple courtyard, age-old legends recited in song suddenly come to life. She discovers wings on the stranger, and the murderer takes the shape of both a hawk and a man.
Angels. Shape-shifters. Myths and stories—until now.
Melaia finds herself in the middle of a blood feud between two immortal brothers who destroyed the stairway to heaven, stranding angels in the earthly realm. When the feud turns violent and Melaia becomes a target, she finds refuge with a band of angels attempting to restore the stairway. But the restoration is impossible without the repayment of an ancient debt—the “breath of angel, blood of man,” a payment that involves Melaia’s heart, soul, and destiny.
Breath of Angel starts off with a bang and just keeps on going making it hard to put down. It also had a lot of twists and turns that I never saw coming. Melaia is a young priestess that thinks her life is planned out until a stranger appears before her in need of help. Before she can help he is murdered in front of her and although she doesn't know it her life is about to change too. Thus begins Melaia's action packed journey.
Breath of Angel is a fast paced book that grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go until the end. But among all that action there is a little romance for those who love romance. So if you are looking for a fast read that takes you on an amazing journey then I highly recommend Breath of Angel.
