“This story was amazing! The author created the characters so you felt you knew them. The plot was unique and kept my attention the entire time. I haven't been this impressed by a book in a long time. ”

“Britt is eighteen years old and dying of cancer. A trip to the lake with her parents and a crazy 'accident' lead her to a whole different death experience. Suddenly, she is in the hospital - uninjured and cancer free. On top of that, she can heal others. But that is just the tip of the iceberg, as she discovers she is indeed different than she has ever been. She comes across two new siblings in town, Allister and Angelina, and she is certain that they have something to do with her miraculous healing at the lake. They are now all connected in a wonderous way, and they, along with some others, must stick together to ensure that bad triumphs over evil. This book had so much going on. The action never stopped. I particularly liked the fact that Britt was connected to Kendal and could see his actions through her dreams. It gave the word creepy a whole new meaning. Whether they were plotting against the bad guys or trying to avoid capture, it was a constant thrill ride. I loved the Guardian Angel/Eternal theme, and the relationship between Britt and Allister was great. They were so dedicated to each other. All of the characters were so real. C.S. Yelle does it again for me..and I love it! ”

“I've been a fan of CS Yelle's writing since I read his Ter Chadain fantasy series. When I found out he wrote a YA paranormal romance, I couldn't wait to check it out! TAKING ANGELS didn't disappoint. The story follows eighteen-year-old Britt Anderson, a young woman who has been battling cancer and ultimately decides she'd rather die than go one more day experiencing her pain and suffering. When she takes that fateful step to end her own life, that's when the adventure really begins for her. She's saved by a mysterious rescuer. Not only doesn't she die, but she's miraculously healed. Yelle takes the reader on a journey into a world where Eternals live among humanity, angels aren't exactly like the Bible would have us believe, and evil comes in many forms. Britt finds and loses the love of her life, creating a sense of tension that had me turning the pages. I particularly appreciated that the story has a concrete conclusion while still leading the reader into the next book. I'm very much looking forward to book two in this wonderful series! ”
