Format: Paperback
Ellie Faneuil has the most bizarre dreams. She dreams she is flying. Add to that, when she touches people, she can get a glimpse of their thoughts. It's because of this that she avoids contact with her best friend, Ruth. She feels funny about sneaking peeks inside her head. But then, a new boy, Michael, shows up at school, and immediately Ellie feels like there is some connection between her and Michael.

Michael seeks Ellie out and reminds her that they met a few summers ago in Guatemala. Elllie's parents are professors and travel in the summers to remote locations to teach local farmers better ways to tend the land. This one summer, Michael's family was also there. But Ellie has no recollection of Michael. She asks her parents about him, and they make vague mention of recalling the Chase family.

As the school days roll by, Michael continues to seek Ellie out and the two grow closer. Eventually, Michael drops the bomb on Ellie that she isn't just dreaming she's flying, she truly is. Not only that, he can fly, too. No wonder the two feel such a connection. Michael and Ellie try to discover what it all means and what they could be. Michael thinks they are vampires, but Ellie believes it's more than that.

As Ellie tries to uncover the truth about who or what they are, her parents become more guarded, people start disappearing, and a strange man begins to turn up in various places.

FALLEN ANGEL is more than just another story about angels. There is romance and tension in the story, and there is mystery and intrigue, as well. FALLEN ANGEL made a great beach read, allowing me to get lost in another world for a few hours. The story kept me engrossed and totally frustrated upon turning the last page. To find out what happens next, readers will have to pick up the second book in the series, ETERNITY.

Format: Paperback
Ellie is a junior in her small town's high school, and even though she's pretty enough to hang with the popular crowd, she prefers to stay with her best friend Ruth. Her family is really intense about helping other people, so every summer they drag her to some remote third-world country to help build farms and what not. Summer activities aren't the only thing setting her apart from normal teenagers though. Ellie started developing new weird abilities and Michael, school hottie, seems to know more about them than she does.

Fallen Angel, Heather Ferrell's debut novel, is a very quick read, and I'm talking just a few hours. As an adult reading YA I found the beginning a bit slow and the tone a bit childish. Things got better after the first one hundred pages or so and I ended up being completely sucked in when Ellie finally meets Zeke.

The whole story turns around Ellie's quest to discover her real identity. Not only does she have to deal with normal teenage stuff, she also has to cope with her unusual abilities. Her quest seemed believable and I'm sure teenage girls will relate to her. Ok maybe not for "the flying thing" as she calls it, but still. Michael will be by her side most of the way, with a rather interesting vampire theory. I have to confess, I wasn't really wooed by any of the male characters, which was a bit of a let down for me, but it didn't stop me from enjoying the book.

The mythology featured in the book was the highlight for me. I don't want to get into details `cause the whole plot is about discovering Ellie's nature, but I really enjoyed it. I'm not usually a fan of religious references but the lore was handled nicely by the author.

Like I mentioned in my intro, the pace followed a crescendo and the book finished with a bang.

This one has potential! Jan. 4 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An exciting debut in the young adult genre Fallen Angel is the first book in a series that supposedly is going to be of 6 books (not so happy about that but oh well). I was able to read this book thanks to IBT. At first I wasn't very convinced because of the book description mixing Angels & Vampires can be a bit tricky but I was glued since page 1, in one I sit I read almost 200 pages but unlucky the last quarter of the book suffers because it reaches a point where it gets slow and it gets a bit hard to still be interested as you were at beginning and the end is not a blowing mind as I thought it would be but even after that I think the book deserves a chance.

Ellie, the heroine of the story, is a normal teenager she's not in the popular crowd but she's not a social pariah either. She's just a normal girl trying to cope with her powers, the harsh of being a teenager and also the fact that her parents are trying to save the world doing missionary work every year and they expected a lot from her. What I liked about Ellie is that she is not our typical female character who needs saving nor the kicking ass heroine either she's in the middle, making her responsible and a person to make things done without much help. I like characters like this because there's a balance and it feels more real, well at least to me.

And there's Michael, the new hot boy who is extremely handsome and have obvious fixation for Ellie. Even though his character is very important in the story I must confess he was in need of more personality, I mean they shared this undeniable bond and also their powers. In some way he was a mentor for her and yet she seemed a stronger character which is not bad but yet the male character isn't very interesting if you find him weak. I expect a LOT more from him in Eternity.

The author took her time to work on the antecedents of the story, the idea of angels & vampires theory didn't seem absurd nor forced. I think the main flaw of the book is the ending, you are expecting something BIG to happen and something do happen but it was very anticlimactic and the antagonist of the story was a bit weak even though he explains his motives I think there should have more background about him and the end revelation of who is? It should shock you but since the end was a bit blah I think that in the end the character was not wise used. But please do give this book an opportunity, is a fast action paced and almost all the book would leave you asking for more.

Looooved May 12 2011
By Tawni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
On the outside Ellie Faneuil is an ordinary girl, but she knows she's different. Ellie can see things, just by touching someone and lately she's been having `dreams' of herself flying out her window and exploring her small town of Tillinghast. Then she meets Michael Chase and she's seriously attracted to him.

They grow closer and Michael tells Ellie that her dreams of flying are real and that they share that ability, but their powers have a twist: blood. Blood, like touch, also reveals a person's current thoughts and emotions and soon Michael and Ellie are craving each others blood. They spend months trying to figure out what they are and why they have these supernatural powers, until one dangerous being comes along!

Ellie is a really easy-going girl. She's calm and collected, that is until she meets Michael and she's uncertain of what she is. She's quiet and doesn't want to stick out and she's always drawn to helping people. Michael on the other hand is a carefree type of guy that's friends with everyone. Ellie is unsure at first whether or not to trust him, but it all falls into place.

I really loved this book! Its a romantic read with a mixture of the supernatural. I enjoyed the romance between Ellie and Michael. It was easy and just felt right. I was immediately drawn into the story and there was never a dull moment along the way. This book was a really nice addition to my end-of-the-year books and I recommend it to all!

I'm Looking Forward to Seeing What Happens Next Feb. 4 2011
By Mundie Moms & Mundie Kids Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
2.5 stars

I have been looking forward to reading Fallen Angel ever since I read the intriguing synopsis and when I received it to read as a review I was extremely excited to enter the world Heather created. I ended up having a hard time with this story, despite the fact I desperately wanted to love it. It's not that the mythology wasn't unique, as it was. I was fascinated by Heather's angels as they are traditional fallen angels with a unique and intriguing history.

The two main characters, Ellie and Michael have a strong connection to each other and end up having a lot more in common with each other than Ellie first thinks. She has bizarre dreams and it's until Michael enters them, does she realize they're dreams at all. Through Michael, Ellie learns more about what they really are, as Michael teaches her how they're able to really see each other-through their blood. Their blood lust for one another really turned me off from the story, as I had a hard time with fallen angels thinking their were vampires. I also wanted to feel more connected with Ellie and Michael, but I felt liked they needed more depth to them. Don't get me wrong, I liked how together they discover their history and learn what their destiny is, but it wasn't enough make me feel I really got to know them.

The plot is a mix of action and at other times one I couldn't get into. I liked that there some of the story's action comes from the traditional "bad boy" which also uncovers more of the plot and Ellie and Michael's destiny together. During this time Ellie learns her history and that of her parents. I found some of old world or old fashioned language a little hard to follow. I understand why it was in the book, but I think it took a little bit away from the story, since Ellie and Michael's families want to blend in and not stand out. Ellie herself uses some phrases that seem a bit odd coming from a sixteen year old in the 21st century.

I like the history Heather included into the story, as those were the most intriguing parts for me. I liked finding out more about Ellie and where she came from and what she is. Despite being turned off from the blood lust these angels have, I was fascinated with Heather's angel mythology. Even though I spent much of the story wanting to like it more than I did, the action at the end of the story (no matter how quick it was) redeemed itself just enough that I will pick up it's sequel, Eternity when it's released.

Fun, quick read Feb. 16 2011
By Reading Teen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ellie Faneuil was a great character. At first, she kinda got on my nerves. Ellie seemed like she didn't know what she wanted in life, scattered, not so sure of herself. She had very little self-esteem. Her best friend Ruth also seemed the same way to me, fragile, scared, mistrusting, whiny. However, they seem to fit together like two-peas-in-a-pod.
The back-n-forth of Ellie getting angry with Micheal was a little frustrating to read, but, I'm sure if I was going through a major life changing ordeal, I might be a little on edge also. I also enjoyed reading that Ellie had parents. Yes, I know most teens have parents, but, you barely read about them. I know in most teen books I read, the teens do what they want, when they want. It was very refreshing to see Ellie actually get grounded for something she did wrong, and have evening dinners with her family.
The antagonist in this book Ezekiel, was a very good bad guy. He was sinister and evil. He wanted Ellie and couldn't have her, she didn't want him back. Terrell did a fantastic job with Ezekiel, he was sinister enough yet approachable, I wanted to hear him out. I wanted to hear what he had to say.
This book got off to a slow start and slowly started to pick up after she started dating Micheal. It really began to pick up when Ezekiel (evil guy) came into the picture, and had a very nice climatic ending. This book is obviously about Angels, and done very well. The author is very good at explaining where and how they became that way. It is definitely worth the read. With the romance and action packed sequences it will keep you glued until the very last page!

Overall, Fallen Angel was an enjoyable fast read, with an interesting Lore and a heart-pounding end. A read teenage girls will appreciate.
