Madeline Noel fled war-torn Heaven to hide within the mortal world, but the blessing that could protect her from evil is the holy realm's forbidden power.
As a talented soprano for the Eden Theatre Company, Madeline hides among prima donnas and tone-deaf flutists. Her perfect voice may entertain audiences, but a careless laugh may shatter glass, and her greatest scream can kill. To control her unrestrained voice, the angels forbid Madeline from embracing the emotions that strengthen her song. Anger. Fear.
The demon-hunter Damascus vows to defend Madeline from Hell’s relentless evil, but he cannot protect her from her own feelings. Though they deny their dangerous attraction, her guardian becomes her greatest temptation.
Surrendering to desire may awaken the gift suppressed within Madeline’s soul, and neither Heaven nor Hell will allow such absolute power to exist.
Sing for Me is the first book in the new adult supernatural series, the Angels and Arias series. As you may have guessed it, this is an angels and demons type of battle story with some romance. But there is also a pretty different twist on the story. It centers around a lovely angel named Madeline, and she is a choir angel. She sings and provides the vocal entertainment in her home of the realm. But a rogue angel is chasing down the choirs (I am not really sure why) and so she is in hiding. So a lot of the story centers around music and theater, which I thought was a nice balance to all of the doom and gloom of fighting demons. Sing for Me was a lovely story, and looks like I series that I would really enjoy.
I adored Madeline, and Damascus really. Both of them were so different that I almost have no idea what drew each of them to the other, but when they are together it is hard to even think about anyone else in the picture. They were that intense. I liked the whole cast of characters that Gracie Madison came up with. I even loved to hate Danielle. I think it will be awesome to see more of the other hunters in the next book. Sing for Me is told from multiple perspectives. I do kind of wish that the chapters had a character label at the start, so that the readers would easily be able to tell right away whose perspective we were seeing the world from. Even without the labels, it was easy to follow along, and I have to say that I really enjoyed this take on the whole angels and demons story. I loved how choir angels have such powerful, and immensely dangerous, voices. I feel like we only touched on the tip of the iceberg of this world and what their voices can really do. I hope we learn some more about that and about why hunters and choirs are so forbidden, in the next book.
Sing for Me is a solid read. I am certainly interested in continuing on in the series. There is not a major cliffhanger, but it does set up the next book nicely. Madeline and Damascus have a tons of ups and downs that they go through in the story. It is clear as day that they have strong feelings for each other, but the realm forbids them from being together. All for vague doom and gloom type reasons. But even so, there is a really nice romance in the story. It was my favorite part, in fact. I really like the two of them. You know which bad guy I kind of wanted to see more of though? The main baddies right hand man- the demon in the cafe scene with the waitress. He really piqued my interest. If you are a fan of supernatural books and angel stories with musical twist, you should check out Sing for Me. It will be a great fit for you.
