Book Review: Echo of an Earth Angel by Sarah M. Ross

Echo of an Earth Angel (Earth Angel Trilogy #1) by Sarah M. Ross
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal/Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: June 12, 2012
Publisher: Self

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?

Echo of an Earth Angel is the first book in the Earth Angel Trilogy by Sarah M. Ross. I was a bit on the fence about this one. I liked Tessa and David as characters quite a bit. Tessa has compelling history. What we know of David is still quite mysterious, but he is intriguing and a sweet heart. I felt like this story shed a pretty unpleasant light on angels. Even the good ones are questionable. God was alluded too, but again it wasn't necessarily in a good way. So, these things bothered me. There was a balance system in place between good and bad. There had to be so much good and so much bad allowed to happen in the world or the balance was messed up. So, even when angels go rogue because they want to do more good, they are hunted and punished. That doesn't seem very fair. It made me think that this version of God was corrupt, and I just didn't like that at all. This was a unique and suspenseful spin on the spiritual world.

Echo of an Earth Angel by Sarah M. Ross was provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Sarah started her obsession with reading at an early age, often sneaking BabySitter Club and Nancy Drew books into math class. She would read any book she could get her hands on. Her love of reading quickly evolved into a love of writing and stories began to pour out of her.

She grew up in Pittsburgh, graduated from The University of Pittsburgh with a degree in English, and taught 8th graders to love reading as much as she does for several years. Sarah will always be a proud member of the Steelers' Nation, but couldn't take the cold and moved her frozen tush to Florida where she now lives with her family and two cats. You will find her now with her trusty Kindle in hand and toes in the sand!

Sarah's debut novel, AWAKEN, released in January, 2012. Other novels include AVENGE, ATONE, ECHO OF AN EARTH ANGEL, and INHALE EXHALE. Check out my interview with Sarah M. Ross!!
