Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink
Helen Cartwright has led a very sheltered life. That is until her innocence is shattered one night when she hears her parents being murdered and must escape the fire that burns down her childhood home. She is sent to the house of Darius and Griffin, two brothers that must teach and protect her until she can accept who she is, a member of the Dictata which controls the balance of good and evil. She is now being hunted down by an organization which is led by a boy she used to call a friend. Can she uncover who she really is? Can she accept her new life?
Mrs. Lassley's Review
I was so excited to get this ARC in the mail. (For those of you who do not know, an ARC is an "Advanced Reader's Copy".) I am a huge fan of the Prophecy of the Sisters trilogy, so I have been following Michelle Zink for awhile. Temptation of Angels takes you to where good and evil are fighting, and evil has the upper hand. All Helen wants to do is find out who murdered her parents and seek justice. Although she is very unsure of her abilities, by the end, she realizes she is a lot stronger than she thinks. Add in a double love interest and a lot of action, and Temptation is sure to pull in a strong following.
