Saving London by Taylor Dawn

   London is a young woman who finds out very devastating news.  She has cancer and there is nothing they can do for her besides prescribe her some medications for the symptoms that are sure to come.  The doctor gives her a year.  London goes home and makes a bucket list.  She runs across a guy named Adam.  He seems really nice and quickly puts her at ease when she's around him.  This guy who shows up out of nowhere offers to help her with the list as long as she completes it.  Turns out that Adam has connections pretty much everywhere.  London is able to live out her dreams during her last year because of these connections he has and she enjoys having him as a companion.  But Adam is not what he seems.  London keeps finding feathers where he has been and a creepy guy named Caine keeps stalking them, showing up in several places that they travel.  He doesn't seem like a nice person and Adam warns London to stay away from him.  All the while, Adam is trying to convince London that the supernatural is real.  That things like angels really do exist.  Several times she questions whether it's safe to be hanging around him since he seems unstable with the way he acts and talks about angels and all that.  But the farther into her last year that she gets, the more she seems some very strange and unexplained things.  All the while, London is constantly reminded that she's hurtling towards death at an alarming rate.  What she doesn't know is that the world hinges on her.

   I really enjoyed reading this book and at first I honestly thought it was one of those regular stories about someone with cancer.  Well, it's not.  It has angels and fallen angels involved and things get kind of weird when you start learning about who London really is.  In fact, towards the middle of the book slowed down a little and then all of the sudden you're hit with another revelation about her!  It has so much detail in it too.  This book is almost overloaded with it, but most of it is a very nice addition to the story, making it seem so realistic.  And if you find yourself asking why this girl is not exhibiting symptoms of the cancer that's killing her body, don't worry, it's explained.  The ending was really great.  It brought a few tears to my eyes, but it was a perfect ending.  This a really good read!

A solid 4 out of 5 stars!

“You have terminal cancer.” 

London Patterson, a seemingly healthy young woman, had her entire life ahead of her. That was until four little words brought everything to a screeching halt. As the shock and grief begin to fade, London decides to map out her last year and embark on an epic journey to complete a bucket list. She wants to do the things she’s been afraid to do in her life, step out of her self-contained box, and see the world. What she didn’t expect was for a mysterious stranger named Adam to breeze into her life like a breath of fresh air. 

Adam offers to help London complete her list on one condition…that she sees it through to the end. Agreeing on those terms, the two set out on an adventure of a lifetime. But London soon realizes that Adam isn’t quite…human. Along their journey odd occurrences happen that cause London to question who or what Adam is and why he’s helping her.
