Just along for the ride

Ethereal (Celestra, #1) - Addison Moore If Angels like the Celestra and Levatio really walk the Earth -- we are in good hands :)(just wanted to share my Amazon review)I am IN LOVE with this book.I love that this book is unapologetically spiritual: it deals with God, Angels, divine inspiration and intervention, the ethereal realm, and the dichotomy between good and evil in ALL of us, without being preachy or evangelical (I even liked that JC was never mentioned lol).This is the FIRST time I've ever connected to the female protagonist in a YA novel. They're usually unreal or have an underwhelming personality. But Skyla Messenger is so me -- her vibrating personality, persistance, and saracastic sense of humor remind me of so many young women I know. And I liked that she had to struggle to learn how to use her powers instead of her just having them magically work all of a sudden. And I totally identify with her decision not to bend when it comes to a certain "issue" with Logan lol.And of course I would be remiss not to mention the heart of this book: LOGAN & GAGEI mean there are just no words for their powerful and astonishingly beautiful spirits; and their unabashed devotion to Skyla's safety and security.But I like that the author also gave them very human characteristics like competitiveness and jealousy.If you have a boyfriend/husband, reading this book makes you want to turn to him and ask "Why can't you be more like Logan and Gage?" lolI've already bought books 2 and 3, and will begin reading them immediately.This awesome experience is worth so much more than the $0.99 it cost.Thank you Addison Moore for bringing this into fruition and sharing Paragon with us; and I thank "The Master" for bringing this book into my life :)
