About the Author
Olga Gibbs lives in West Sussex, England with her husband and two daughters. She has written since she was 15 years old. She has written mostly short stories and novels, guest columnist for a local newspaper. She is in the midst of writing the second book in this series and another crime thriller book.
What would you do if you had the one key that opens Heaven and Hell? Which one would you open?
Ariel is a lonely high school student who lives with nightmares and secrets that she doesn't want anyone to know. Ariel has hidden strengths that she doesn't know that she has. She is questioning her sanity.
Her life is thrown in turmoil when three new students show up in her school. Who are they and why are they there in her small town? She is about to find out that she is the key to humanity. She has the power to save or destroy it. Ariel finds out that she is part of a celestial conflict and she doesn't like it.
This is a great book. It is a fast read. I can't wait to read the second book in this series. I didn't notice any grammar or punctuation mistakes. The only thing that I think should be changed is the cover of the book. I don't see how the cover compliments the book except for the feathers in the girl's hair. But other than that, this is a great novel. This novel draws you in with its easy to read format and the vivid descriptions in the many different scenes that you find in this novel.
This novel does have a little romance. At the end of the book is where Ariel tells one of the guys that she loves him but I was hoping that she would end up with the other one. I can't wait to read the next book to find out what happens. I like this book because the author keeps you on your toes. There are twists and turns that make it more captivating.
I would recommend this book to teens to young adult. If you love to read novels on fantasy, folklore, social sciences, education, and novels in high school, then this is the book for you. This novel is also considered to be religious in that it has to do with angels.
