Guarding Angel (Fallen Redemption Book 1) Kindle Edition
She's an exasperated guardian angel. He's a stubborn human. Can she protect him from a demon's wrath, or will she lose her wings forever?
I don’t hate being a Guardian angel. What’s frustrating is being confined to this rank for a millennium while everyone around me has earned their colored wings and gone off to help the humans plan their lives, inspire art, and fight demons. I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong!
My latest Ward, a human named Daniel, who lives in 1800s Maryland, refuses to listen to anything I whisper in his ear. If he doesn’t watch himself, he’s going to end up dead—or worse—and I’m going to end up wallowing around with white wings for the rest of my eternal life.
As if that’s not enough, a charming fellow Guardian angel has come sauntering into my life, bringing smoldering looks, unbidden feelings, and a demonic ex-lover who decides she has it in for me.
When Daniel's—and my—life on the farm starts unraveling, I stumble into a plot that leads not to Hell, but to Heaven, and to a destiny I was apparently created for. I need to answer some questions before my life devolves into chaos. How do I fit into the plan for humanity? What does the Council of Seraphim want from me? And will I be able to stop my rival before she orchestrates a revolution an ocean away to become more powerful than any demon before?
An honorable mention in the Writer’s Digest 23rd Annual Self-Published Book Awards, Guarding Angel is the first in the Fallen Redemption trilogy.

A birds eye view of the before life that culminates in an ending that kept me turning the pages until early, very early in the morning. One wonders how true this may all be. In a sense, the bureaucracy of heaven and the politics surrounding it are an interesting twist to the story as well.
There are some turns to the various lives that really surprised me with a thought, “I didn’t see that coming”.
All in all, it was a great read with good character development. I look forward to the next installment of this series and hope it comes out soon.
The cover design is flawless; I can honestly say that I have never seen anything quite like it in the indie world so far, and I've read a good amount of indie works. If I saw the cover in a physical store, and read only the blurb, I would purchase the book on appearance alone!
But, we can't always judge a book by its cover, can we? Moving into the prose, I can say that Guardian Angel does not disappoint. The work is well-written and - surprise surprise - there are no grammar errors! Many indie authors elect not to use an editor and that's a shame as it really puts down the overall quality of the book. Guarding Angel does not make this mistake, and as an avid reader and indie fan, I'm very happy with this.
In terms of my genre preference, I'm not typically a romance fan, but Guarding Angel is, at its heart, a fantasy novel, touched by elements of romance and a deep-seated look into the nature of religion and the afterlife.
As a child, I sometimes wondered if the lives we possessed were due to our choices when leaving heaven (back when I believed in such things), and Guarding Angel touches on this concept and expands into original territory, where souls choose their own trials and tribulations with the ultimate goal of personal growth. There is a deep amount of world building; indeed, the novel is set across a number of historical periods, fast-forwarded across the ages, not to mention the vastly different worlds of heaven and hell.
At the centre of it all is Enael, a guardian struggling to keep her charges safe, while at the same time battling her demons (both literally and figuratively). It's a tale of success and failure, a struggle about doubting oneself which, I am certain, will resonate with a number of readers, dipping into harsh truths which can be both illuminating and discomforting, depending on how you look at it.
At the end of the day, Guarding Angel is well worth the read. If you enjoy fantasy and a quick tryst into the realms of heaven and hell, then this is the book for you.
