Loss defines her past, danger her future...

...in between stands Adam...

...mysterious, beautiful, and so out of her league.

Will his secret keep them apart or will they learn how to trick fate?

Dive into your new favorite angel series!


Falling in love with a paranormal creature isn’t a good idea for 18-year-old Claire. Having just adjusted to a new High School after her parents’ death, she can’t afford to be sidetracked by complications of any kind—no matter how intriguing. But fate has different plans for her…

As she falls head over heels for Adam, Claire inevitably spirals into the eternal war between good and evil.

“I love you,” he said with a smile on his lips. And then his eyes snapped open, flashing green. A white blur shot out from between his shoulders, smashing everything within reach. I was thrown to the ground by the force of it and something hard hit my head. The last thing I saw was Adam’s shape against the white radiating light that seemed to have its source inside him...

When 18-year-old Claire Gabriel meets Adam, her life takes a drastic turn. He seems to have stepped right out of a fairy tale and he is beautiful – more than anything. On the way to discovering his secret, Claire soon finds herself in love with the mysterious boy.
Unable to evade the dark shadow their feelings for each other draw up, Claire becomes a target in the eternal war between good and evil. . .

White is Angelina J. Steffort's debut paranormal romance novel and the first book in The Wings Trilogy, the story about the impossible love between a girl and an angel.


White is one of the top 15 books on Listopia's list for Twilight fans, ranked alongside with The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, Fallen by Lauren Kate, Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, Vampire Academy, and many more...

Praise for White:

“Angelina’s first novel is virtually unputdownable: a delightful, wicked, deeply seductive fantasy with characters that leap off the page and a love story that has its reader yearning for more. Thank God there will be more installments to come. Read at your own peril - because you are going to get stuck and burn the midnight oil with this one: Angelina J. Steffort has crafted a deeply engaging world with a level of astounding detail. For an author’s debut, this is world-building at full power and romance writing as it should be.“ (Toni Weiss, Creative Partner @ Little Lights Studio)

“White is a thoroughly entertaining tale of Good vs Evil. Claire and Adam are two young adults living ordinary lives. When they meet, Claire unknowingly becomes a catalyst between the forces of good and evil. People and events are not always what they appear to be. The ending came as a complete shock! I can’t wait to see what happens next.” (Donna Wolz, editor @ Wise Owls)

“I read, no, I swallowed the story. White has a great flow and the ending brings together nicely the storylines Angelina builds up throughout the whole book. It was easy to fall into the mystical love story between Claire and Adam. White is captivating and suspenseful. A real page turner.” (Katharina Sabetzer, coach & writer @ erzählbar)

With Claire's parents gone, she is uprooted and moves to Aurora with her sister. Here, she finds a new fascination with graveyards and prefers to spend her time there. This is where she meets the good-looking Adam.

There's something mysterious about Adam and it only draws Claire in closer. They have a connection that neither can explain, but it isn't instant love which I really liked. But Adam's has secrets that put Claire's life at risk. A secret that involves an old war between demons and angels.

WHITE is a captivating story with intriguing fantasy elements. I loved Adam's character and how he always has Claire's best interests in mind. I thought the way events unfolded were well written and sucked me into the plot.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of angels and fantasy with that addition of romance and mystery. It was an original take on angels and I appreciated that.
