Synopsis:  
Seeing good and evil spirits is a gift Zoe guards with her life.
Despite her guardian angel’s disappearance, Zoe forces herself to accept that she still has a purpose—but how does she carry the weight of her brother’s drug abuse, the hardship of living with an autistic sister, and a best friend who’s obsessed with a guy who only wants Zoe?
She’s never felt more alone.
When a mysterious spirit appears, Zoe thinks she has a new guardian angel. Instead, her brother’s addiction worsens, her parents are on the brink of separation, and her best friend tries to kill her. The spirit she thinks is her new guardian isn’t there to protect her: he’s out to destroy her family and seize Zoe’s soul. . . for Hell.
Will Matthias’ return mean that he is Zoe’s guardian angel again? Or is their love the reason the jaws of Hell now gape open?
 



My Review:  
PENITENCE is the second book in the Heavenly series by author Jennifer Laurens and is just as jaw dropping and amazing read as the first book,  HEAVENLY.   Once again I was drawn in and had my emotions thrown all over. 

The cover alone had me on this one. Just take a minute and look, no I mean LOOK at it! It is so moving. I know what I see and would love to know what do you see? All the emotion on this cover is within the pages of this paranormal fantasy. 

The characters once again are awesome. I dove right in after finishing the first book and I was able to stay in the emotions and all the, well for lack of other words, the good and evil between the covers of this story. What is going to happen next? What will Zoe do? Will her guardian angel be there? 

A must read series... 

Okay, with all that, yea I know it is not a lot but with that being said: I am giving this book and this author a Breath of Life rating of: 


Five Clock Rating:

She knows this because she's an indie author and knows how many copies have actually sold. So much for the reliability of Goodreads.
