BLOG TOUR!!! Until Next Time by Amy Lignor

Welcome to my review of Until Next Time by Amy Lignor! Enjoy your stay at Behind A Million and One Pages, and hope you stay and look around a bit!



At the Other End:

How does a girl choose between the one who steals her heart and the one who owns her soul?

Matt and Emily were created for a specific job. Raised and trained as the ultimate angel/warrior team, they are sent down to save, defend, judge and forgive, depending on the 'life' they've been assigned. What they don't realize is that the power of human emotions, such as love, anger, passion and fear can take over even the best of souls, causing them to make mistakes and follow paths that lead to confusion and heartache.

When the reason for their training is finally revealed, the angel/warrior team find themselves thrust into a world they know nothing about. Matt takes over the life of Daniel, a young man with a great deal of baggage. Emily becomes Liz, a girl living in a remote village who relies on nothing more than her own strength to survive. A violent storm erupts one night, and framed in the window of Liz's establishment is a frightening face. Let in by the soul of a Good Samaritan, the two visitors bring with them a past full of secrets that could literally change an angel's path and a warrior's plans.

From murder to redemption, this angel/warrior team must find a way to keep the faith they have in each other in a world that's ripping them apart.





First Impressions Last:

When I first got asked to join this tour I thought it was a very unique idea for a novel. It sounded good, yet the blurb (as usual) seemed too long. The cover looked very unique as well, I like the details and how it's strange and unusual. You don't really understand the cover much when you first see the novel, but it is a pretty cover that draws you in.




Behind the 255 Pages:









The novel started off slow but as you go through the book it starts to pick up. Your attention doesn't start wandering as it started to in the beginning. We are made to quickly get used to their world and know exactly what is going on, instead of havingto slowly ease into it we are thrust into their world.

As the novel continues, we start to get caught up in the characters. You start siding for one of the guys, but then something else happens and you start thinking again who really is worthy of her.

hmmm....



                 or.....


I love the new spin on the classic Guardian Angels. In all Angel stories nowadays, we only hear about the other Angels they are with, no novel mentions God or any other high being like the Archangels Michael, Gabriele etc. It is good to see something newdeveloped from where the general idea of Angels come from, as well as Lignor's own spin on the ethics and characters featured in the novel in heaven.

We question the truth behind Dublin and what the place contains. We can tell that the main action and biggest complication of the novel will happen while in Dublin, but when we find out why they don't want to go back there, we aren't satisfied with theanswer we get. Yes, it explains most of it, but we still feel like we are left in the dark, because there is something else that keeps them away from Dublin and not just what they told the girls.

Liz seems wise, but she is also so very innocent at times. When we go back into Emily, we realize just how innocent, from how confused she becomes on Jason as well as Matt. Some things we realize, stays with her as she transferred into Liz's shell. BothEmily and Liz are innocent minded, and sometimes seem like they are blind to the world.

Everything starts to pull into place. All we were questioning have been answered in the 'big reveal.' Be prepared for a shock. Emotions will be everywhere (not tissue box approved however). Be careful.

The title of the novel has a whole new and deeper meaning at the end of the novel as it comes into play more and we see it bring together the novel nicely. Great choice of title for the novel.

  1. Gina - Thank you for giving the angel/warrior team a spot on your incredible site! I'm glad you enjoyed the novel and I love the fact that you liked the 'tie-up' at the end. More of Matt is coming up the next time around (and I love the fact you liked the title - that was something that I stewed over for a long time!) :)
