Taking Angels is the first book I've read where our Guardian Angels are living inside us. It's a pretty interesting thought. So are Eternals--not angels or human but sole-less humans that live forever with special abilities. One word, WOW! You have your good Eternals and your bad. I enjoy reading things that are new to me and I'll give any unusual idea a shot. This one paid off because Taking Angels surprised me. 

While the beginning seemed to drag on for me as all we learn it all in the synopsis it was a worth while and surprising read. I just wish the start of it had less of her confusion/mystery and "We'll talk later" from Allister and get to the intrigue and action. All things in their own time, call me impatient. If this book sounds interesting to you I have one tip, either skip a few scenes in the beginning if you feel your dragging or push through it because, wow, it gets better! I caught myself putting it down and thought, "I can't do that, I want to know what happens!" So I pushed through it and I'm glad I did. When I finished I wondered where did the time go?  It is not a quick read so it's perfect for those that like the longer books it about 372 pages on MY kindle.

I really like Allister the most. Maybe, it's the idea of a new to me being or his whole character I can't really decide. There is a little romance between Allister and Britt but it's not All about the romance as much as it is about the.... Well if I said that I could spoil the book so I guess you'll have to try it out yourself. Britt's pretty awesome herself but if I give my thoughts why I'd have to include several spoilers and we don't want that.

All in all I enjoy CS Yelle's writing and story line. Its a neat break from the romance driven or sex driven stories that I normally read. I'm looking forward to finding out the next book in the series will bring.

Britt Anderson went along with everything the doctors said for nearly four years, but she was still dying at eighteen. The cancer had won leaving her without a future, without any options, and without control. No control, except for how she would leave this world. As Britt tries to end her life by going into the frigid waters she realizes her mistake. She struggles to get back to shore, to cry out for help, but her atrophied muscles are useless and the frigid water steals the breath from her chemo-scarred lungs. Despite her father’s attempts to reach her, she flies over the waterfall.

When Allister Parks finds Britt’s fragile body on the riverbank something calls out to him. Ignoring the warnings of his sister, Allister brings Britt back from the edge of death. The only problem is that an Eternal like Allister isn’t allowed to touch those who have already passed from this world. It is forbidden; an infraction punishable by death.

As Britt relishes her new cancer-free life and senior year of high school, her very existence threatens Allister’s place in this world. Allister struggles to keep Britt a secret from the Eternal Council and out of the hands of the only Eternal who already knows the truth: the one who stole her guardian angel.
