The world has never been an easy place for impoverished teen Beau Tolson, but from the moment her sick mother is given months to live, Beau’s life takes an extraordinary turn.

In order to buy the only drug that can now keep her beloved mother alive, 16 year old martial arts champion Beau resorts to illegal prize fighting at East London’s most notorious underworld lair.

But that’s only the beginning of her troubles.

When some of her closest friends start acting weird, and a mystifying new boy turns up outside the school gates, Beau is told a life changing secret... That not only are some of her friends angels, but that she is going to become an angel too.

It isn’t long before she finds herself torn between the divine and this world; between her responsibilities and the colossal destiny that awaits.

Little do any of them know that a sect of ex-angels have also come to Earth, planning on kidnapping Beau for the very same reasons the angels want her: to fulfill a prophecy that involves this world and theirs, and who will rule it all until the end of time.

 WARNING: This book leaves off on a cliff hanger. But you knew it would, right?

SOREN: The Angel & the Prizefighter is a YA /NA paranormal, angel story. I think the author, Louise Nicks, nailed it with this book as I found it very attention-grabbing and unique with its explanations of wing variations, who is whom among the angels, and the hints of prophecy. She also hit the nail on the head in regards to how children behave and bullying. Our heroine, a martial arts fighter, is being bullied due to her lack of money. I loved how this was handled although I think the end result was a bit fantastical. Ideal, but fantastical.

The love interest and how the relationship develops is nice. It was frustrating to see how many are against them, but I loved that their close friends came around and supported them, including the standoffish Braille.

I look forward to reading about each character as this series continues on. I'm being general because I don't want to let on what happens in the end, but there is a lot of movement that needs to happen. As as these movements occur, I'd like to learn more about the team of friends put together, Argo to get his head out of his feathered behind, and watch as the powers that be find their own!
