Okay, so let's face it, there are a lot of angel books out on the market these days, and it's a challenge to find one that stands out as unique. There are only so many angles you can take with this theme, unless you really think outside the box. Echo of an Earth Angel wasn't something that stands out as entirely new and different, but it was an intriguing story with lovable characters, and I enjoyed Sarah Ross' take on the angel theme!

Tessa was really struggling to get ba
I received this ARC ebook from the author Sarah M. Ross herself for my honest review and I have to say that I really liked it. I like how different the story was to a lot of Angel books out there and often times found myself laughing out loud. I enjoyed Sarah's quick wit and writing style. What didn't convince me at first was how quick the two main characters fell in love, but halfway through the book, their love grew on me and I began to understood the self-sacrifice and choices they made.

I received this as a first-reads contest win, and I'm very happy I was given the chance to read this book. I haven't come across it as a "recommendation" during my other book purchases, so I don't know if I would of become aware of this series otherwise. I loved that the author included signed bookmarks, as well as a beautiful inscription of wishing me a "lifetime of happy ever afters.." using my name in the inscription. It felt more personal than the other books I've won with just the authors n ...more

Sarah Ross did it again, and this time was even better than the last. I have officially fallen in love with another series, and of course, it would be one about angels, which has been my obsession for as long as I can remember.

Ross' novel, about Tessa, an 18 year old girl who was supernaturally altered during a accident that resulted in the deaths of her parents, is a book I'd definitely recommend. Tessa is the type of spunky, stubborn character that makes females everywhere smile, and groan at

With it's interesting take on angels and charming love story, Echo of an Earth Angel is a story that will appeal to angel fans.

The characters in Echo were all fairly well-developed. Tessa, being the main character is the one we get to know best, and I did like her. She is a very sympathetic and kind girl, but also extremely resilient. Not many people who'd gone through what she had would be so concerned with the welfare of others. I learned a lot less about David, but enough to know that his ki

I had the blessing of getting this as an eArc from the author.

After a tragic shooting that took the lives of Tessa's parents, and almost killed her after she was shot in the head saving someone else's life, Tessa is finally home but there are alot of things she does not remember, sections of her memory are gone. Then strange things start happening and a mysterious guy named David suddenly pops into her life and tells her he can explain everything that is happening to her.

Another great book from a very talented author! Once I picked this up, couldn't put it down. What I really enjoyed was the pride of her hometown shown countless times throughout the book.

Echo of an Earth Angel introduces us to Tessa, an 18 year old girl who should have died a year prior in a shooting at a gas station, but instead, was saved by a rogue Healer angel, David. While healing her, David went a little too far and as a result, turns Tessa into a Healer Angel just like him. Tessa starts r

This is my favorite book from Sarah. I loved how strong Tessa's friendship is with Morgan. No matter what happens in their lifes they are there for each other. I love David. I love how strong he is and how he will give up everything to make sure Tessa is safe. He saved Tessa from one horrible night that took her parents lifes. He stayed by her side for a full year that she was in coma. When Tessa finally meets David and they get to know each other better it's so sweet to watch their relationship ...more

This was an awesome book!! The characters were well written and the story line was wonderful. I love how Tessa is strong willed and how she will do anything to heal people and save her David from his fate. Her friend Morgan is just as strong and spunky. I liked her. She endured a lot as well from being taken by Nico. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book.

Echo of an Earth Angel is the first book that I have read from this author. And I thank her for sending me a copy for review.

What I loved most about the book:
THE COVER: The hands are such a huge part of the story. And I love the visual of the hands being entwined. The power of touch in itself is such a wonderful thing! It evokes a whole range of emotions.
DAVID: The fallen angel. The healer. He cares so deeply!! I loved learning some of the things from his past that have made him the man that he

This book was quite different from the normal YA PNR books I've read.

Many of the angel based stories out there focus on the battle between heaven and hell, angels and demons, good versus evil, the fight to keep the apocalypse at bay, and although this story still had some of these elements, it was more about the betrayal and deception going on within the ranks of heaven itself. With the different type of angel factions, from Hunters to Incarnators, it was interesting and I wanted to know more.

This is the first book by Sarah that I have read and I can say that I really enjoyed it. I wasn't quite sure what to expect.

Having this be a book about angels, I wasn't positive I would love it. It seems that just like books about the fae, angel books and I have a love hate relationship. I either really like them or I really don't. There is hardly ever an in between for me.

This book surprised me with how well edited and written it was. Sometimes you don't always get that with an indie read. I h

I really, really wanted to like this book, but I just can't. It is not for a lack of effort. I think the thing that really grinds my gears is the dialogue of the teens in this book. I am twenty years old, so it wasn't that long ago, that I was a teen, but no one I know or have ever met talks that the teens in the book.

Quotes like, "...kicked him in the dingleberries so hard she knew he'd never have children -- or sing bass -- ever again." and "Listen, mister, I'm sorry, but I don't remember you

I started reading this book last week. It took me a while to get through just because I had it in my head that this was actually the second book in the Patronus series. Whatever you do, don't think that. Yes both books are about angels of some form, but they are completely unrelated. Once I realized that this was a different series, the story flew. Obviously, from that statement, the story revolves around angels and not all of them are the good kind. As far as I can tell, there are no other type ...more

2.5 stars -- I'm beginning to wonder if I'm just not in the right frame of mind for reading certain books. It seems like I haven't been enjoying some highly recommended books lately, and that's unusual for me...I'm pretty easy to please. Makes me fear re-reading books I loved in case I find all sorts of flaws...*sigh*

I just couldn't get into this one. I don't know if I just have too much going on right now, but I felt like I had to more make myself finish this one instead of being glued to it. B

Four Stars for Echo of an Earth Angel
By Sarah M. Ross

Tessa has only been out of her coma for a few months. She has lost her parents from a tragic accident. Tessa thought she was lucky to have survived. Since waking up from her coma, she has been kind of gloomy and experiencing things that can't be explained. That is till David showed up.

David is a healer, but he is also a Rogue Angel. He left Heaven because of a disagreement about how his powers should be used. David was there to witness the tra

First I want to thank Sarah Ross for sending me an eARC of Echo of an Earth Angel. I fell in love with her other book, Awaken, back in January. So to say I was excited to read another book for a different series is an understatement. I hope when you read her books you enjoy them as much as I have.

Tessa has been home for a bit recovering from an awful tragedy; one where she lost both her parents. She was almost a casualty as well when she took a bullet to her head saving a young girl. With sectio

Review by Michelle McQueen Book on the Bright Side reviewer

Rating 4****

This book was provided free from the author in exchange for honest literary review.

After the accident, Tessa's life was turned upside down. Due to the coma she missed almost 18 months of her life. Her brain had several lapses....only pieces of her last 18 years could be easily recalled by her. Most importantly the accident left her a freak in her own mind. Then one day David shows up in

I was very lucky to receive an ARC of this first book in the Echo of an Earth Angel trilogy. To be honest, it took me a while to wrap my head around this book. Not because it was difficult to understand or because anything like that, but because it really had such a different take on angels. I was a bit concerned when I read the synopsis that this book would have a very sad/emotional veil and I have a difficult time reading things that emotional. Have no fear though, while you definitely underst ...more

Echo of an Earth Angel by Sarah M. Ross is the second novel in her series and keeps you turning pages. An easy read, I can't wait to see what happens in the next novel. Ms. Ross leaves us hanging with a cliffhanger. You can't help but care what happens to the characters. I fell in love with the main characters and enjoyed the secondary characters as well. Tessa is the main character, and David heals her when she's shot to save her life. He heals her too quickly and too much, and she wakes up an ...more

I received an ARC of Echo of an Earth Angel from the author and I must say, I'm glad to have read it. I am a paranormal fan, but have recently felt so inundated with the normal cast of characters that I've been a little burned out on it. However, Ross brings in a whole new sub-genre for readers, angels.

The characters are fun and interesting and each has his/her own touch of intrigue. The story line is different and captivating.

The writing had some errors (remember, I had an ARC so not the final

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?

I was a bit on the fence about this one. I liked Tessa and David as characters quite a bit. Tessa has compelling history. What we know of David is still quite mysterious, but he is intriguing and a sweet heart. I felt like this story shed a pretty unpleasant light on angels. Even the good ones are questionable. God was alluded too, but again it wasn't necessarily in a good way. On the other hand, this was a unique and suspenseful spin on the spiritual world.
