There's An Angel Among Us...

Friday, December 3, 2010
This week's quote of the week, comes from a book I just finished reading.. Honestly,
I can't shut up about this book or stress how fantastic it is.

Ashes to Angels is a love story told as a horror story and a horror story told as a love story, Ashes to Angels is as raw and edgy as the hipster characters whose blended voices color much of the ink like a literary tattoo.
Auryn, an angel, cuts off her wings - with scissors - in an ill-advised deal made with her demon twin sister looking for bail out of hell. Auryn falls out of the sky to earth, where she falls for Asher, failed artist. This is the story of the evolution and dissolution - a vicarious nuclear catastrophe - of their bizarre relationship: angel falls for atheist, poet steals from his own Muse, mortal rapes a supernatural, immortal commits suicide.As a paranormal dark romance, it makes subversive comment in poetic meditation on the impossibilities of love, the most lethal threat to human existence.

Now, I usually only read and write YA books.. But I'm a sucker for any kind of book involving a forbidden love affair...

Before Romeo and Juliet, there was Tristan and Isolde, and before Tristan and Isolde, there was Asher and Auryn. ~ Natalie McCollum author of Ashes to Angels.
