Azrael's a wingless angel, and if that wasn't bad enough, she's the only one with a functioning conscience. Her bi-color eyes mark her as a moral hybrid, and when she breaks her enslavement to Manor Saffron by making a deal with a demon, she doesn't expect to become Queen. She’ll have to survive her new royal magic, convince a legion of angels she’s worth fighting for, and find the breach in her Faustian deal, or risk a new master with horns.
Fallen to GraceFeatured
A Different Type of Angel Story
In FALLEN TO GRACE, Azreal is a hybrid, an abomination, but she dreams of becoming so much more. Those dreams didn't involve becoming queen though. When she is the next chosen, she must go through the Acceptance to become the next queen and her body must accept the change.
The Acceptance is extremely painful, but Azreal has the support of the angel Gabriel and her best friend Marietta. However, she didn't realize demons would be coming after her in her time of weakness, before she can become her true self.
Betrayal leads to a devastating end, but Azreal gets her wings whether it was worth the price or not. Now only she can lead the angels and hybrids into a better future and protect them from the demons.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of angel stories, but this one is slightly different since it focuses on her becoming queen more than a romance.

Top Amazon Review by Verified Customer "Mel M":
First, high praise to the cover designer. It's beautifully designed and drew my attention right away. It was a hint to the quality of writing and story within this exciting YA novel.
The main character, Azrael is a wingless angel with a conscience. Things start to get interesting when she makes a deal with a demon. "Perhaps to bring good into the world, she needed to mix a little evil in it first." Soon after, she is offered the option to become queen of the Wingborn, but she must pass the Acceptance first. If she doesn't pass, she will die a slow, agonizing death. Having made a deal with a demon to get so far, she agrees to move forward.
From then on, her magical powers begin to take form, and the story is completely gripping. There are many novels that deal with the paranormal, but I found this author created a unique world, with an imaginative and fresh take on angels, demons and how they conduct themselves. I was completely enthralled throughout. It's quick read that stays on plot without any extra "fluff" which keeps the pace perfect and exciting.
I would recommend this book to mature young adults and older. Just as a note, this is Part 1 of the story, and there is more to come. I look forward to the next volume!
