Few Are Angels is book one in the series Few Are Angels by Inger Iversen. I read this book as part of the anthology, Powers, Spice and Not So Nice.

Ella Monroe is nineteen years old and has lost her parents. Soon after the tragedy, she begins to have what she thinks are hallucinations and begins to hear a voice in her head. When she has the visions, she gets physically sick. She made the mistake of admitting to these occurrences and found herself in a mental hospital for three we

I will say that I loved every minute of writing it. Was the process hard? Yes it was and at times I wondered if I would ever publish Ella and Kale's story.
When it finally happened I was so excited and nervous, but I think it turned out to be an incredible experience!

Ever since I did an interview with the author last March I've been SO excited to read this book. So when she send the ebook to me, I was thrilled. Few Are Angels by Inger Iversen is one of the best books I've read lately. I loved every page of it. The book caught my attention right from the prologue all the way till the epilogue. It was that good. Beautifully written, with interesting dialogue and equally interesting characters. Iversen created an impressive world in her book that I would love t ...more

I liked Few Are Angels. I really liked the different spin on this particular paranormal. It took me almost halfway to know what anyone was, as far as the supernatural goes. Which is a good thing, it kept me intrigued.

It was action packed, and sure takes you on an emotional rollarcoaster of a ride. The character development was very well done. I see great things to come from this author.
I did find a few slow spots, mainly taking us through Ella’s first day on the job at the grocery store. I didn’

First Thoughts:

I fell in love with this story, I essentially enjoyed every second of it…I found myself up late in the night just wanting to read it…to know more about what was happening in this unique world. It really captured my full attention and I had no problem with wanting to read it, each part was just as important as the one before it. The writing is captivating and beautiful and the characters were so enticing that I found myself falling in love with them…this book had a really good conn

I hate giving out 1 ratings. However, this book just didn't really have anything positive about it. I seem to be on a streak with finding books with the worst characters in them. Ella meets Kale and of course finds him irresistible right off the bat. I don't mind insta-love books. However, she has a hard time trusting Kale throughout even though she really likes him. Then you have Jace who she trusts right of the bat but guess what? He is the bad guy. See how dumb Ella is? That's why books like ...more

Is it possible to be interested & bored at the same time? That's the only way I can describe how I felt for a good portion of this book. The beginning & toward the middle, things are very mysterious, intriguing. And there is something about the lead female's voice that just draws you in & makes you yearn to know what is happening around her & why. But once you reach the middle & toward the end things begin to drag with the plot.

I don't know if it's cos she spends way too much

Let me start by saying, sweet mother, this is a pretty darn good read. I will also start off by saying this story has a very sad, tragic beginning. I literally couldn’t help but feel so sorry for Ella. She is in utter pain from the loss and then her “mental” issues are really not helping. But what would you do if you had a special ability that everyone took for a mental breakdown? I mean, how do you explain that and actually get people to believe you.

Now, I like Ella. Despite the fact that Ella

Ella is easy to like. I also really enjoyed Kale. He’s the bad, broken boy every good girl wants to bring over and kiss all better. Jace and Alex are both exceptional characters and added to a great well-rounded mix.

The story was well done after we slogged through to Chapter 7. Past that, the story sky rocketed into a whole new realm of fun! The twists and turns! I seriously just had to let myself sit back and enjoy it!

This is a really fun vampire story. It’s not one that would make me lift my v

If you could learn from your mistakes, would you? If you could find your soul mate again, would you? If you could protect the ones you loved, could you? Few are Angels dissects these questions and weaves them into an incredible story.

Ella is grieving, confused, and alone after her parents were killed in a car accident. She is living with her parent’s best friends, who she grew up visiting with her whole life. They make her feel as welcome and comfortable as they can, but Ella still closes in on

One night she finds herself outside watching two boys fighting in her yard and her adventure begins.

I had high hopes for this book but I was a bit disappointed. It started off relatively slowly with Ella adjusting to her new life with the Carlton's and being released from the mental hospital. I expected more of a paranormal influence rather than just the appearance of Vampires or supernatural activity. Kale turning up spiced things up a bit but their relationship seemed stilted and as I did not believe in them, I was not invested as to the outcome. Ella seemed very immature and constantly wave ...more

Ella’s past is devastating, but her future may push her over the edge. After losing her parents she starts to have visions and hearing voices, which lead to her being admitted to a psychiatric hospital. After moving to live with her parent’s friends, she meets Kale, and her life will never be the same again.

The book is well written and the character development and story line both continually evolve throughout the book, leaving little to the imagination. The reader can easily escape into the st

I liked this but I didn't love it. I'm partial to reincarnation/second-chance love stories, hell, a love story that spends the centuries automatically earns 3 stars. But Few are Angels never quite got further than that.

The biggest downfall was that Ella was SO frustrating. She kept everyone at arm's length for so long and yet she fell right into Kale's, a stranger's arms, almost instantly. For someone who is so sick of being called crazy, she had little trouble believing the ridiculous

I have a unique perspective in this story, because I live near Virginia Beach, and it just so happens that I also studied at Virginia Tech. These two factors drew me into the story and immersed me that much more fully. Although honestly, this wasn’t even necessary. Inger Iversen’s poetic style and artistic way with words drew me in on their own merit. In her own words, the heroine doesn’t react to events surrounding her in a natural, normal way, and because of this, I had a hard time seeing why ...more

Loved the overall story! The idea that Kale and Ella have been torn apart by time really just tugs at my heart strings. I love Kale! He is dark and mysterious and I just couldn't get enough of him. The whole time wondering, if he is who he says he is and whether or not Ella can really trust him. There were a few editing issues, but the story helped me to get passed this. I enjoyed getting to know Ella and really like how Inger Iversen shows us the past. Can't wait to see what's coming!

Review originally posted on Books and Swoons

I was asked by the author, Inger Iversen, to review this book and after providing the me book and reading the synopsis, I was immediately intrigued.

Ella has been dealing with the tragic death of her parents as well as hallucinations that caused her to be hospitalized. The author did a great job in portraying Ella's grief and confusion in dealing with her parents' death and in one of her monologues, Ella expresses how she feels so alone. Ella has no c

Ella is one messed up chick! She’s dealing with a major loss, trying to put the pieces of her broken soul back together, and she’s trying to wrap her head around the bizarre stuff that’s happening to her. Did the sane part of her brain really check out for good?

Ella is an extremely engaging character that I think I was able to relate to in some ways. No, I don’t hear voices and think I’m losing my mind. OK, maybe sometimes. But I am the type of person that cares an awful lot about others, and I

I was pleasantly surprised by Few Are Angels. I enjoyed it so much, I am beginning Awakened right away. The story pulled me in from the first chapter and kept me glued to every word. The characters were very well written and I found myself becoming extremely attached to a few of them. I can't wait to see what happens next, especially with Kale and Ella.

Ella can see the past. I'm not sure if it's ALL the past or just her own. She seems to me to be a beacon for trouble. It's almost as if she looks for it, as she follows unknown guys into the woods.
The conflict in Ella's heart is heart wrenching really. She'd been through so much already. Mia's attitude was a bit irritating, but very easy to understand once you know her story. I'm sure everyone of us knows a Mia.
I was iffy about Kale... His role was a bit Twilightish. He reminded me a lot of Edwa

A WONDERFUL debut novel!

I'm not a huge fan of romance stories but I was so engrossed in the book, and the story, by the time the romance revealed its self I didn't mind. There was no way I could put it down and not find out what happened. I did think the romance between the two main characters was a bit rapid, but that may just be a reflection of my unenthusiastic liking for romance stories.

I have read a few reviews that comment that it's a bit slow in the beginning but I will point out that t

Can I just say how much I LOVE this cover (yes it has EVERYTHING to do with that hot shirtless guy on the cover) I loved Ella right off she is a fiesty one, she wears her heart on he sleeve, "I'm just trying to help you, and you're acting as if I'm the one who kicked your ass last night." Normally with the male characters in the book I fall in love with them right off, but Kale made me work to love him and when I did it was a hard fall, "...It was punishment for loving you."

I had such high hopes for this book. It had been on my TBR list for quite some time so I was more than excited to finally start it. Unfortunately, it was a bit of a struggle, and I couldn't get through more than fifty percent of it. There just didn't appear to be anything of great significance happening. I didn't feel any connection to the characters at all. Kale just disappeared from the story for a big chunk of it, and I found some of the interactions between characters quite random.

Really sad
