A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink

A Temptation of AngelsWhen her parents are murdered before her eyes, sixteen-year-old Helen Cartwright finds herself launched into an underground London where a mysterious organization called the Dictata controls the balance of good and evil. Helen learns that she is one of three remaining angelic descendants charged with protecting the world's past, present, and future. Unbeknownst to her, she has been trained her whole life to accept this responsibility. Now, as she finds herself torn between the angelic brothers protecting her and the devastatingly handsome childhood friend who wants to destroy her, she must prepare to be brave, to be hunted, and above all to be strong, because temptation will be hard to resist, even for an angel.

Michelle Zink masterfully weaves historical fantasy with paranormal romance to create a gripping tale of love and betrayal.

Dark and beautiful. Those are the perfect words to describe A Temptation of Angels. This is due to Zink’s amazing writing style. She has an incredible way with words. Zink’s writing captures you and lures you into the story. Hours pass and you don’t even notice how much time has gone by. That’s how talented this author is.

The setting of the story was amazing. At times I found myself wishing to be transported in time just to be part of this time in history. I would love to see this book made into a movie. It would be awesome to see the characters come to life. Everything about A Temptation of Angels was fantastic. I definitely recommend this read.
