Let me start by saying that it's rare I give 5 stars to anything paranormal. This was nothing short of a 5 star read. The story of an angel Bayla learning to allow human feelings, trusting her mission, and sacrificing for the grace of others is inspiring!

I am going to venture to say that if this book got enough promoting it could truly be a best selling series. I know I am on the edge waiting for book 2 in September.
Fans of Amy Bartols premonition series would love this!!

Thank you for allowing m

It was an ok story. Not a lot of action u til the very end. Parts of it were monotonous. I do like the story line

Not quite what I expected but much more. I love paranormal stories but tend to cringe at most people adaptions of angels and demons. They all seem to run together and stay eerily similar. This one however was a refreshing and engaging change.

It’s not a romance novel to me but a young adult paranormal read. I would recommend this story to anyone in High School and college as well as beyond. They are young twenty somethings with a mixture of Angel’s and Demons. I’m definitely loving the angel and demon paranormal department. It’s fascinating to read each author’s difference on how they make and view these worlds.
Tara Benham wrote a powerful coming of age novel in my opinion. It had a lot of deep thought-provoking moments. So much so,

Holy crap on a cracker, Batman.


I was not expecting this book to get to me the way it did. It started off alright. Easy, smooth read. The world building was solid and when Bayla and Hadraniel get to the town in Kentucky, everyone was just so nice.


I had trouble relating to Bayla at first. She was just so bland and took everything at face value...which of course makes sense because she has had very little human interactio

What a great read! I love reading about Angels and demons!

I really enjoyed all the characters, save for 3 of them lol! Bayla is really reserved, but also sweet and caring. Life as a soul collector hasn't been an exciting one. She totally cut herself off from humanity and relationships of any kind because why have them in her line if work. They will only die. watching the forging of new friendships was amazing and I was happy bayla was still capable.

Bayla has never failed a mission, but this new

Engaging and original

This book has me excited to read the next. If you like YA, paranormal, or both you should check this one out! I was pleasantly surprised that the characters were not typical of what you'd find in a book about teens. There was a little teen drama but it all had a purpose and all fit with the characters and their stories.

Can't wait to "fall" into the rest of this series and unravel the mysteries behind Bayla, Declan, and Hadraniel.

All I can say is WOW! Now this is quite the read, unexpected, but what I would call an amazing read. I wasn't sure at first because the whole angels and demons theme but this one certainly changed my mind. Just when you think you know what is going to happen, BAM....another twist. I would really recommend this one to anyone and it's a series I will be carrying on reading in the future. 5 stars from me!

What started as a read-along turned into me being unable to put it down until I'd finished it. The cast of characters were well-developed and relatable but I most enjoyed Bayla's transformation throughout the story and her banter with Declan. Several twists had me guessing and going back and forth until the revealing ending and then left me surprised and even more excited for the next book. I did find the writing style a little unpolished but faster reading and a great storyline kept me hooked a ...more

Great read!

The characters are well developed. Storyline is solid. Great twists and I want to see how book two plays out.

This was an unexpected story at every turn. Just when you think you know what is going to happen the story takes a twist. The whole series is a must read.

I haven’t read a novel with Angels and Demons in a while so when I received this copy for review, I was delighted. I wasn’t disappointed either! It’s a YA adventure/romance and very clean. I would recommend it for the 13 years and up crowd. The story is a bit slow in the beginning but when things pick up in the middle be ready for nonstop action! Also be aware of unanswered questions as this is a series in progress, you’ll have to wait til Book 2. I loved how Bayla’s character evolves from a no ...more

I was beyond ecstatic when I won Tara's signed copy of Falling. This was a great win, and one that I won't soon forget. It did take me awhile to finish, but by the end, I must say that I'm glad it took me as long as it did, and that book number two is only a couple short days away!

This was easy but very entertaining book to read. I want to read more about Declan and Grey. And I can not wait to read what happens to Bayla.

We all have read books about Good vs Evil, but let me tell you something about this particular book/series. Not only is a book that will have you read it and understand it easily but you will want to start on book two as soon as you finish this one.

Bayla the Heaven's Soul collector, Gray Ellison the teenage human, and Declan the Demon get involved in this story not only will they have you biting your nails but you will not know what or whom to choose in this battle.

I don't know about you but if
