Anxiety-ridden New York investment banker, Cara Collins, has little to smile about on her twenty-seventh birthday between a hostile work environment and her impossible romantic situation with her longtime friend and first love, Dr. Kai Solomon. But before the day ends, she learns she has inherited $50 million--a windfall that must remain secret or risk the lives of those close to her. As Cara unravels the truth surrounding her inheritance, she makes a startling discovery: angels walk among the living, and they're getting ready to engage in a battle that will determine the future of the human race. In the midst of these revelations, she meets mysterious and sophisticated Simon Young, who offers her the promise of romance for the first time since Kai--but when Kai and his daughter are kidnapped by dark forces, Cara must choose: accept her place in a 2,000-year-old prophecy foretold in the Trinity Stones as the First of the Twelve who will lead the final battle between good and evil . . . or risk losing everything she holds dear.

3 1/2 STARS The first book in a new fantasy series is an intriguing and deep romance with a unique spin on angels and demons. On her twenty seventh birthday, Cara Collins gets an unexpected inheritance Ã¢?? one that must remain secret or people will die. As the truth is revealed about the windfall, she learns that angels walk among us and are about to engage in a battle that will determine the future of the human race. Care will have to chooseÃ¢?Â¦ accept her place in a 2,000 year-old prophecy orÃ¢?Â¦ risk losing everything she holds dear. The first half of the book progresses at a steady pace keeps readers intrigued with lots of suspense, drama, some action and romance. The author brings the story to life with vivid descriptions and lots of intense details that make the reader feel as if they are part of the story. The characters are strong, compelling, easily related to and grab the readerÃ¢??s attention from the very beginning. The second half of the story picks up the pace and the tension builds as the danger starts to escalate and the prophecy is revealed and even more characters are introduced. The attraction between Cara and Simon radiates from the pages, but the relationship is forbidden between the members of the Trinity, which causes some extra spice in the story. But destiny has a way of breaking all the rules all on its own. I found the story to be fascinating with lots of intriguing twist and possibilities to keep me interested and with the multitude of characters that play a part in the complex conflict and the intriguing prophecy I certainly stayed caught up in the story to the very end. The only problem I had was during the first half, the story seemed to drag in a few places, but this could be because the author had a lot of information and history to be imparted, which the reader would be lost without.show moreby Eva Millien
