Here's what the back cover has to say:
Eden didn't expect Az.
Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings.
So long happily-ever-after.
Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven.
She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else's game. Her heart is her own.
And that's only the beginning of the end.
LiLa's Take: A Touch Mortal is a dark, action packed, thriller definitely more suited to the older YA crowd. Leah Clifford's take on angels is completely unique and the world she built in her debut novel was nothing short of fascinating. It's not a light read in any sense of the word, but between a well paced plot and the heat between Az and Eden, I couldn't put this one down.
And as a bonus, we've had the opportunity to get to know Leah this past year through our Cleveland book club. It's absolutely fascinating to know an author and then read their work. We've heard Leah and others talking about the book and their favorite parts and couldn't wait to have our own turn. Now if we could just get our hands on that sequel...
