Thanks to Netgalley and Xpresso Book Tours for giving me this book to review.

Madeline has fled war-torn heaven and is hiding in the mortal world, in a theatre company, she is unable to use her full voice for fear of harming or killing others. She is protected by the demon hunter, Damascus, who has vowed to guard Madeline from the evils hunting her, but are they able to deny their attraction and desire for each other.

Sing For Me is an OK New Adult paranormal novel, but while it had an interestin


I am really surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did. It started off a little slow for me so that's why I thought this was going to be just mediocre. It really picked up and then I started getting pulled into the storyline. I like the angels and demons aspect of it. As I was reading I was asking myself, I wonder what goes through a writer's mind in order to come up with a story such as this. The idea of a mortal in love with her immortal protector made it that m

This book has everything -- great characters, romance, action, angels, opera. All of it comes together for a intriguing, at times heart-breaking, at times funny, can't put it down story. I cannot wait for more.

I highly recommend Sing For Me.

The blurb and the cover appeal me to request it on NetGalley, unfortunately I have to stop reading it now at 30% as I'm not that interested anymore. I've tried so many times to keep reading it and force myself to finish it, but I just couldn't do it now. Maybe I'll continue reading it in the future.

Sing For Me was unlike anything I've read before. Sure I've read fantasy and even other books about angels, but the world that Gracie Madison created is definitely in a league of its own. And the fact that it's a debut novel? I can't wait to see what she has planned for the rest of the Angels and Arias series.

Madeline is a choir, an angel created for music, that is hiding among the humans because she's in danger. Forbidden to feel emotions, all Madeline is permitted to do is sing. The problem wi

First... this cover! Oh. My. Gosh. LOVE!

When I heard about this book, I had to read it. I'm a singer, so that completely drew me in. The idea of having a book placed in a theater. Love it. I must admit, I was skeptical about the paranormal part as I'm hot or cold for that genre.

In summary: I LOVED every part of this story.

Most of all, I loved the writing. It is just STUNNING. I found myself a number of times wondering how long it must have taken to craft and weave such beautiful prose. I don't

I've never been one to ever call myself a religious woman, but I can say with confidence that these angels definitely need Jesus. Not only do I suggest it in a "wow, there's some crazy debauchery going on here" way, but also in a "wow, Jesus' story was far more interesting" way. While there were some elements of Gracie Madison's Sing For Me that absolutely deserved heavenly praise, overall
First of all, can I just say how much I love this cover? My expectations were really high, and luckily the book inside this gorgeous cover didn’t disappoint. It read like a symphony, sometimes harmonious, with a few disharmonious arias thrown in to shake things up a bit, but always guided by a gifted conductor who wrapped it all up in a musical masterpiece. (Geeez, that was a cheesy simile, LOL!)

It’s been a long time since I’ve read an original angel themed book. Much as I love them, and some of

This book is such a whirlwind!
I went from loving this novel, to hating it, to throwing it across my floor, back to feeling content with it. In general, I guess I can say I had a good time reading.

I love a good novel that centers around angels vs. demons; good vs. evil; Heaven and Hell. It's why I'm gravitated towards literatures such as The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, and J.M. Darhower's Extinguish. So when YA Bound Book Tours announced a tour for Gracie Madison's Sing for Me, I knew

I’m giving up at 24%. The story is going into a predictable, somewhat stereotypical even, direction that is making it harder for me to get through. And it’s a shame, because “Sing for Me” has such a promising summary, and a beautiful cover, and the first chapter is lively and engaging. But everything after that first chapter fell short.

The story is dominated by the impossible romance of Madeleine and Damascus, a detail that I didn’t expect and didn’t enjoy when I discovered this. I was really ho

I tried really hard to like this book.

I even finished the whole thing. And yet, I still didn’t enjoy it.

And I don’t have any good reason either. I really don’t.

I love angel and demon books so I was really excited to read it. The plot was interesting. With many twists and turns. Great secondary characters. (I’m looking at you, Shiloh!)

It made me laugh a few times.
The action was great.
It wasn’t terribly boring, but it also didn’t hold my attention.

Possibly, it’s because I’ve been in a weird read

I think this is a case of it seemed like a good idea at the time. Also, cover lust. I found this title whilst browsing on Netgalley for New Adult that wasn't a contemporary. The cover got my attention immediately, it is flat out stunning. The blurb sounded intriguing.

But the story is just not working for me. I made it 12% but the dialogue is making me want to bash my head against the wall. The setting is quite descriptive, but I can't stand the characters. I qui
Book Review originally published here:

While the idea of Choirs, angels with the gift of music, is an excellent and original plot idea, the book simply was too confusing at times. It didn’t explain things enough. On top of that, Madeline’s personality makes it almost impossible to connect with her. The love between Madeline and Damascus is forbidden, yet she keeps leading him on. Damascus reads like an angel version of Twilight’s Edward. So while the plot

However, only a handful of chapters in and I already wanted to give up on this book.

Everyone is doing a run through of the upcoming show. All seems to be moving slow until we finally get to the part where Madeline screams.

Quickly we find out that she is an angel, her guardian is a demon hunter and her friend wont remember any other this come morning.

Sing for Me is the first book in the new adult supernatural series, the Angels and Arias series. As you may have guessed it, this is an angels and demons type of battle story with some romance. But there is also a pretty different twist on the story. It centers around a lovely angel named Madeline, and she is a choir angel. She sings and provides the vocal entertainment in her home of the realm. But a rogue ang

The first thing that struck me about this story was the writing. It's lovely, dramatic, and flows quite easily. Sometimes I don't like the overly dramatic writing, but somehow this fit. It's set in an opera house and there is an angelic war going on in the wings. If that doesn't scream for drama, then I don't know what does.

As the title suggests, there is a bit of a "Phantom of the Opera" element, though mostly it's antics and the odd joke. I found the tw

This is one of the first NA (new adult) books I've read so I wasn't sure what to expect going in.

I have complicated feelings about this book. It wasn't bad per se, I just didn't really enjoy it. I read the whole thing, though admittedly I started skimming at about 30%. I considered abandoning it, but sheer stubbornness compelled me to read to the very end.

Madeline is Choir. And Choir are being murdered by Corinth. So to hide and stay safe, she retreats to the mortal world with her Hunter and protector, Damascus. But Damascus and Madeline feel for each other far more than they should, than they are allowed to. And if Madeline finds her true voice and sings with the emotion long denyed her, she could kill them both.

Sing For Me wasn’t the kind of story I usually read.
But since I’ve got the chance to read it, I wasn’t disappointed. I was caught in the story where angels, demons, prophets were the main characters.

There’s battle where the Choirs (created to entertain people with their incredible and magnetic voices) were chased and killed and of course the search of power by the demons to rule over the world.

I was first drawn to this book by the beautiful cover. A story about Angels and Demons, how could I resist and I have to say that I was not disappointed in the least. Ms. Madison has a lovely flowing and lyrical way with her writing. The reader is first introduced to Madeline Noel during one of the Eden Theatre's final rehearsals, but immediately, you can sense something is wrong. Madeline is keeping a tight rein on her emotions and for good reason. She's a Choir, a magnificent angel created sol ...more

Madeline has the voice of an angel -- literally. Heaven is at war, with angels and demons fighting, so Madeline was sent to Earth to hide out as an opera singer. Damascus protects her from any rogue demons who might get the unfortunate idea of coming after her, but only Madeline can keep her voice in check. After all, one wrong note could seriously injure, or even kill, one of her friends.

This book is really well written, and often very lyrical/poetic. But I felt that the third person narration and the switch between character's p.o.v. meant that I felt a little bit detached from the characters. I also felt that we were entering the story mid-way through the action, and I actually had to check that this was actually the first book in the series. Because the romance was already sort of established, I felt that I couldn't really get on bored with it because I only knew that they we ...more

Sing For Me is a story about Madeline Noel, who is an angel living in the mortal world. She is a choir and has a voice with whom she performs in a theatre. Her voice is not only perfect, but also dangerous and her scream can kill. Therefore Madeline is forbidden to feel emotions that strengthen her voice. These emotions are anger, fear and love.
