Official Description: This is book #1 of the Celestra Knights series
A point of view novel: Ethereal (Celestra Series Book 1) rewritten through Logan and Gage’s perspective.
Angels still roam the earth through Nephilim bloodlines. The battle for power between angelic factions intensifies when a new girl moves to Paragon Island.
Logan and Gage Oliver are captivated by Paragon’s newest resident, Skyla Messenger. Logan believes she is the Celestra destined to grow to a ripe old age with him, and Gage believes she’s the girl prophesized to be his.
The battle lines are drawn as both Olivers vie for her attention while danger lurks around every corner, and they must work together to keep Skyla safe. Logan fights to keep his new relationship with Skyla, but destiny alters his plans and he must make a decision that might cost him Skyla forever.
So, this was interesting little take on the Celestra series. This goes ALL the way back to book one (Ethereal) only we see it in the view of both Gage and Logan. Take it as no big surprise that 16/17-year-old boys have dirty, dirty minds and potty mouths. I don’t know really if I want to be disillusioned by the thoughts of the Olivers, I mean you have this picture of them built up of them in your head, is their POV really necessary. It isn’t, it doesn’t really change the story, it just gives you a whole other insight into the Celestra world, the world of Skyla, and honestly I would like to see what’s going through their heads later on in the series when everything just goes crazy and you have no idea what’s going on. This book is ok, it doesn’t have the magic of the other series, maybe because we kind of get clips into their world on Addison Moore’s website, maybe because they are pure and perfect like you want them to be, maybe because teenage boys think way to much about sex, who knows. I love the writing of Ms. Moore, I’ll read anything she puts out at this point, because she has a way of dragging you into the story, the world, the characters, you sympathize, hate, etc. It’s just in this one…I don’t know, it just is missing something…perhaps it is because the element of the unknown is gone so you don’t invest yourself so much…perhaps it’s because the tone is different, I don’t know, it is still entertaining it just doesn’t have that spark.
“Skyla is water and oxygen, and I need to soak her in, drink her down—be near her, in her—just to survive.”
