Taking Angels #Review @CSYelle

Britt Anderson went along with everything the doctors said for nearly four years, but she was still dying at eighteen. The cancer had won leaving her without a future, without any options, and without control. No control, except for how she would leave this world. As Britt tries to end her life by going into the frigid waters she realizes her mistake. She struggles to get back to shore, to cry out for help, but her atrophied muscles are useless and the frigid water steals the breath from her chemo-scarred lungs. Despite her father’s attempts to reach her, she flies over the waterfall.

When Allister Parks finds Britt’s fragile body on the riverbank something calls out to him. Ignoring the warnings of his sister, Allister brings Britt back from the edge of death. The only problem is that an Eternal like Allister isn’t allowed to touch those who have already passed from this world. It is forbidden; an infraction punishable by death.

As Britt relishes her new cancer-free life and senior year of high school, her very existence threatens Allister’s place in this world. Allister struggles to keep Britt a secret from the Eternal Council and out of the hands of the only Eternal who already knows the truth: the one who stole her guardian angel.
Britt is eighteen years old and dying of cancer. A trip to the lake with her parents and a crazy "accident" lead her to a whole different death experience. Suddenly, she is in the hospital - uninjured and cancer free. On top of that, she can heal others. But that is just the tip of the iceberg, as she discovers she is indeed different than she has ever been. She comes across two new siblings in town, Allister and Angelina, and she is certain that they have something to do with her miraculous healing at the lake. They are now all connected in a wondrous way, and they, along with some others, must stick together to ensure that bad triumphs over evil.

This book had so much going on. The action never stopped. I particularly liked the fact that Britt was connected to Kendal and could see his actions through her dreams. It gave the word creepy a whole new meaning. Whether they were plotting against the bad guys or trying to avoid capture, it was a constant thrill ride. I loved the Guardian Angel/Eternal theme, and the relationship between Britt and Allister was great. They were so dedicated to each other. All of the characters were so real. C.S. Yelle does it again for me..and I love it!

I give Taking Angels by C.S. Yelle 5 Stars. Awesome read!
