Goodreads Summary:
Danann Frost is thousands of years old, yet young for her kind. She is a creature of the Light, an Angel, one of the Seraphim; a race of beings that live beyond our world. She has been cast out of paradise and Fallen from Grace, all for the love of a Dark One - a vampire. The only problem is, Seth did not want her and told her to go and not come back. Danann has made a life for herself amongst the vampires of this world and they protect her fragile nature. She and the vampire Asher live on the fringes of the human world; love and loyalty cannot separate them but trouble and vengeance are on their way. After two hundred years of enduring the crippling punishments of her Fall, Seth walks back into her life but he is bitter and angry and out for revenge. Thank God he is after someone else...or is he? Can Danann escape the dark intentions of her once-beloved for whom she Fell from Grace, or has she put all those that she holds dear in danger? Journey with Danann as she takes the path to taking back her Light and ascending to be Angel once more. Will the Archangel Uriel surrender her Light or will Danann be doomed to walk in darkness forever?

Seth who is a vampire(Dark One) longs to find love and happiness after many years of boredom stumbles across a woman at the Lake (Ireland) and becomes instantly entranced by her little does he know she is an Angel.

I loved the forbidden love between the Angel and Vampire- and the consquences for that love. This book grabbed me and I couldn't read it fast enough.

What I thought was interesting was the switching from 3rd to 1st person though at first it confused me but after a page or so, I fell comfortably back into the story. I believe this is the first book I ever read written that way and to me it was very unique.

I liked as well the transition from 1800's Ireland to Modern day Melbourne, it flowed very well.The characters were also well written, though I found myself getting a bit frustrated with Seth for a bit for his bitterness towards Danann.

Overall I loved this book and am eagerly waiting for the sequel because I want to know what happens next- oops almost gave away the ending of this book.

Would I recommend? Yes I believe this is nicely done debut for Joanne and I can't wait for the next book.

My Rating 4 out 5 stars

I feel bad because I had to wait to last day to get this written and posted. But RL tends to interfere when you least expect it.
