Book Review: Sing for Me by Gracie Madison

Title: Sing For Me
Author: Gracie Madison
Publisher:Tika Labe Publishing
Publication date: January 23rd 2015
Note: This book was sent to me by Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: 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.


Gracie Madison would spend every day, all day writing…if it were socially acceptable.  Ever since she was a little girl scribbling with a crayon, Gracie’s dedicated herself to her books and all the supernatural and paranormal, creepy and beautiful stories and characters born within the pages. Now Gracie is committed to finally sharing those books with the world.  When the laptop is pried from her hands, Gracie is probably working her day job, rooting on the Steelers, or out with her husband searching for Pittsburgh’s best sushi.

Review: When I first saw the cover for this book I knew that I wanted to read it. I know, I know... they say not to judge a book by its cover. But it's so pretty! The premise definitely drew my attention too. I've been meaning to try angel/demon books for a while and just haven't gotten around  to reading one until now.

I really enjoyed this story. She's fled Heaven to hide among the mortal world and has been with the Eden Theatre Company for a while where her beautiful weapon can stay hidden. Madeline Noel's beautiful voice can be a very dangerous weapon. Her laugh can shatter glass and her scream can kill. This is why she just stay in control of her emotions at all times: anger, fear and love are all emotions that can all easily have lethal consequences.

Damascus is a demon-hunter whose job it is to protect Madeline at all costs. However there is one thing: they both feel more for one another that they should. Madeline is forbidden from feeling love. The concept of forbidden love is always a good one and Gracie Madison adding the twist that the fact of Damascus and Madeline could die as result... Brilliant. While it's a brilliant twist it was hard to imagine a world where you're forbidden from being with the person that you love.

I really enjoyed this unique read and felt that it had some strong supporting characters . This is the first book in the Angels and Arias series and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. I'd definitely recommend this one if you're looking for a unique paranormal read!
