At the Other End:
When Matt and Emily are sent on their second mission they have no idea how truly dark human nature can become...

Emily never wanted to face humans again. With the heartache that went on down below, she’s still trying to figure out how to save souls that don’t deserve saving. The only one she wants to see again is Jason - the young man she fell in love with who became the soulmate she simply can’t forget...

Matt was trained to protect and defend the souls down below. Longing to feel the heartfelt emotions that come from being human, Matt wants nothing more than to have just one life - one chance - to live and love the girl of his dreams...

The powerful team find themselves in a brand new century, living in the Gilded Age of New York City. Emily takes over the body of Anya, a young Russian girl who arrives on Ellis Island after a hideous tragedy. There she meets up with a strangely familiar young man by the name of Drew Parrish, who helps Anya survive in an unknown world of luxury, snobbery and…obsession.

What Anya’s inner angel doesn’t know is that the soul she loves is also back. This time around Jason goes by the name of Max Carrow. Once a quiet and kind boy, he’s now part of the ‘Four Hundred Club,’ and wants nothing more than to be among the most admired as he climbs the shaky ladder of society’s elite.

As two worlds merge, Emily and Matt struggle under the weight of their “Gilded Wings.” Not only will they have to figure out who they should fight to save, but they must also face a romantic choice that could destroy them both.


Read Along- Along- Along:

Drew’s heart beat faster when he watched Mike take a piece of chalk from the pocket of his white jacket. The medic reached up quickly and drew an ‘X’ on the forehead of Gregori’s father. The immigrant stood there, his eyes vacant, staring at the stranger who’d just pronounced him mentally ill—denying him passage into America.

Mike clicked his fingers and guards suddenly appeared from the mass of bodies waiting for their shot to roll the dice. “Sir, please come with us.”

Gregori screamed, as his father was quickly led away. Tears fell from Anya’s eyes as she held the struggling boy back in her arms. Drew begged God to not let this be the last picture that the young boy would have of the man who’d raised him.

Suddenly the father broke from the officer’s grip and raced back toward Anya and his son. The guards tried to seize him, but Drew vaulted the rickety desk to stand between the family and the law.

He spoke through clenched teeth, “Let them at least say good bye.” The images of his own Ellis Island passage flashed through Drew’s mind, and the tears for his own dearly-departed father threatened to fall. He knew that Gregori’s father would soon be led down that darkened hallway into the medical facility to await the long journey home. He would be treated kindly—kept warm and fed—but his dream, as well as his son, would be lost to him forever. Yergi hugged his son; his shaking hand thumped against the boy’s back, as he looked up into the young woman’s eyes that stood behind his son. “No matter what, my boy will not starve.”

She nodded. “I promise.”

Tough Chicks

I have always been a fan of tough, intelligent females in novels, and I believe that comes from two places.

My mother is the strongest, most courageous woman I know. Being a career librarian, she taught my sister and I at a very young age that books were magic, and I learned pretty early on that she was absolutely right. It’s because of that lady that I became an avid reader and writer. Buffy was the other figure that truly epitomized strength; she had a way of making sure that everyone knew it was her way or the highway. Even though she fell for the vampire of her dreams, Buffy was still the strong one, with stake in hand, that took no funny business even if her heart was breaking. Let’s face it, when you put her up against a great many females in fiction who spend a lot of time chasing after the guy or hoping that he’ll like her the way she is, Buffy proved that any girl could kick major butt, and that she was the ultimate hero in a world full of men…and vampires, of course.

In a historical series I write called, Tallent & Lowery, that will appear in bookstores on December 1st, the main character is a very tough, very intelligent woman who has a card catalogue for a brain. She can pull up all sorts of information, head out on adventures and solve puzzles that no one else even understands. She actually brings the mysteries to life. Funny - a bit sarcastic, at times - she’s the ultimate heroine. 

So when I began my foray into the young adult world, I decided that I very much wanted to tell a unique angel story (not ‘fallen’ or tormented…at least, not at first). I wanted that female angel to be the toughest of the tough; and not by wielding swords, but using her talents to go against the most difficult things you can possibly think of - human emotions.  When this angel goes up against love, greed, pride, prejudice - she’s beyond confused, but she keeps going. Her mind and her heart are pushed to the limit sometimes, but she never gives up who she is or what she believes in, and I love her strength.

Matthew, her partner, has been her savior a great deal, and in Gilded Wings he shows his own unbreakable will. But as her protector, partner and friend, Emily and Matthew have a relationship that transcends a ‘romance’ - they combine their toughness and make sure to do their job, even when a twist occurs that could send Emily spiraling. Whatever their ultimate fate turns out to be, I hope that readers really come away with the feeling that Emily is a stand-up girl. This is no princess…even though there are two princes who very much want to be a part of her life. She has to make some truly tough decisions…so it will be interesting - even for me - to see if Emily allows anyone into her soul.
                     

Until Next Time, Everybody,

~ Amy
