The secrets of the heavens had always been carefully guarded. Until one day when the angels realized that what they used to believe in was nothing but a cruel game between heaven and hell.
And Claire’s life is a part of that game too….
She is a guardian angel. She always thought that her existence was perfect. But perfection is a very relative term, and no one is protected f

Well first off let me just say this is one of those books you can definitely judge by its cover, it is gorgeous and so is the story…
The Souls of Rain is a new twist to the guardian angel story.
Claire is a guardian angel who does her job very well. She is one of the best there is.
Then there is Nolan… Ah Nolan. An ex-angel who was cast out of heaven. He is my favorite character in this book! His witty remarks and his well his whole persona is amazing to read.
And there is Alan Claire’s new assignme

We have always known that there are entities above our power of to understand. As a child and maybe even later we all thought that there is something that is protecting us and named it “guardian angel”. But what if there is more to this unknown world? What if your guardian angel is your best friend, the lady from the market or your neighbour? There are secrets guarded better than anything in the universe. However there may be a slip, even t

I am beyond happy that I had the chance to read this book. First because the cover is gorgeous and that alone made me fell in love with the book and then because it has angels.

The Souls of Rain is the first book from the Heavens Trilogy by Diana Nixon, and it’s the story of Claire, a guardian angel. It rarely happens to me to actually like the main character of a book, but I just cannot hate any of the characters from Diana’s books. I enjoyed Claire’s attitude as an angel and later as an outca

For Claire, a Guardian Angel, fighting demons is what she does. She is assigned people to protect from demons. Her latest assignment is going to be a handful. From the moment she meets Alan Rosenford it is apparent that this won’t be like any of the others. Right off the bat he is able to see her, something that humans can’t do unless the Angel drops their ‘invisibility cloak’.

That’s not this man’s only trick. One day after the other he continues to surprise Claire with his intuition and on top

I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

First, I will say that Diana Nixon is one of my favorite authors. I love all the books she wrote because she created a world that I like very much.

Every book has something special, something that can keep me in that world and I can’t let the book until I finish it. I love that her stories are simply to read; the characters are very well described, interesting and fascinating.

The Souls of Rain is the first book of a trilogy nam

I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Diana Nixon. It is always a pleasure to read a new story you wrote!

Since we were young, our parents taught us to pray and go to church. Kids should pray to the Guardian Angels to protect them and help them in need. There is always a little angel on a kids shoulder. As we grew, we thought that all these things were fictional. But what if we were wrong? There is the sky and something above we don’t know, there is God,

The Souls of Rain by Diana Nixon
I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
When I started reading this book, I was excited because one, it had such a beautiful cover and two, because it had angels in it. I haven’t read an angel story I haven’t liked but this was the first one in which the main character was a female angel and a kick ass one at that. However, Claire wasn’t my favourite character; that was Nolan, supposedly a fallen angel. He reminded me of Nolan in the TV series ‘Revenge

Amazing book! This is the first book I have read by Diana Nixon. I was given the book for a bog tour review, one I might say I am glad I accepted. Diana did a great job writing this book, she was able to pull me into the story and play like a movie in my mind. This is when I know I am reading a great book! I was lost in her world that she had written.

The main character in the book is Claire a guardian angel that has determination and serious about her job. She is one of Heavens best angels, she

This is a beautiful romance and a struggle between following one's heart or striving to be pure. Alan and Claire were beautifully done and I adored Nolan with his cavalier attitude - he was definitely my favorite character of the story (though I did get irritated with his always saying he couldn't tell her stuff or running off at inopportune moments which just seemed contrived to not reveal key elements from the audience. Admittedly, I prefer characters laying all their cards on the table and wo ...more

Even heaven has its secrets. Claire was having a normal day, she got a new human to watch over, her friend Nolan is pushing her buttons, and her human can see her even though she's invisible? Claire is a guardian angel when she gets her new human things are turned upside down for her. Her human makes her feel like she's seen him before. Heaven her home is passing laws she does not agree with. Her new helper that she is assigned is making her uneasy. Nolan and Claire work with her human, (Alan) t ...more

Oh my wow, I absolutely loved this book! The characters were strong, the story line was amazing and the action was incredible. Diana Nixon drew me into her world, with twists and turns and while the mystery of the characters connection kept me turning the pages the ending totally blew me away!

Claire is none other than a Guardian Angel. Her new assignment, to protect Alan, will stretch her to the limits, proving to be more than she can handle alone. Guarding humans always has it's risks because d

I really enjoyed reading The Souls of Rain and after reading this I am really looking forward to what happens next in the trilogy.
Being a Guardian Angel seems to be hard work for Claire, she has to slay demons who are trying to make her assignment do bad things so they eventually go to hell but things are changing.
Claire gets her new assignment and as soon as she sees him she realises he can see her but how? her powers of invisibility just aren’t working on him so she tells him she is his mother

WOW! I loved this book! Angels, demons, and so much more!!! Such a brilliant storyline and characters you can't help but love. I read this book straight through and couldn't put it down. I am hopelessly addicted to this series now and I can't wait to get my hands on book 2 when it comes out!

Claire is one of the best guardian angels that heaven has. She kills demons and guards her human with everything she has. Her new assignment is Alan, a guy who seems to have a death wish. Something about this

First I want to say that I was gifted a copy of this book from the author for my honest review.

This book was amazing! This is the first book I have read by this author and it will not be the last, especially since I am anxiously awaiting the next one with no patience at all!! I cannot wait to find out what happens with these characters. The author, Diana, did an outstanding job of making me feel like I was right there with the characters, feeling everything they were going through. I was so lost

I am all about angels I think this is one of my favorite subjects as far as reading.

I enjoyed this book tremendously. Claire is a guardian Angel and is good at what she does. She enjoys her work. Then she is assigned to Alan.

Alan rosenford is your typical party bad boy. He is pretty messed up. But you know all of that can be deceiving.

There is also Nolan, a fallen Angel and I have to say one of my faves. He is funny and sarcastic.

A forbidden love story! This book has loads of twists and turns, it will just keep you guessing all the way through; who is evil? Are the good angels all good? What's happening to the main character? Why? It will keep your imagination running wild all the way through!! Can't wait for book 2!

3.5 Stars

I love books that feature guardian angels. It's just nice to think that there's someone watching over you in times of trouble. The Souls of Rain is about Claire, an experienced and talented guardian angel. This novel offers an intriguing look at Heaven politics and bureaucracy. Claire gets caught up in the middle of the Heaven's issues just when she receives a difficult new charge.

I liked Claire—she's intelligent, push
