Damascus Knowles knows that he is heading for trouble the day he falls in love with a human teenager, Amelia Donovan.
As an angel sent to earth as a watchman to protect it from fallen, evil angels; he had broken the most cardinal law - falling in love. His failed attempts to stay away from her, leads to her finding out what he is, which puts Amelia’s life in danger.
After a brief time together, Damascus’s fears come to pass when higher ranking angels find out what he has done and remove him from the earth without so much as a goodbye; leaving Amelia distraught.
Months later Amelia is seized by one of the rebel angels, who also happen to be Damascus’s former brother Demetrius. This is a deliberate move by Demetrius to draw Damascus out and he is forced to return to the earth. When Damascus is back on earth he receives word from his brother who challenges him to a duel. The stakes, being Amelia’s life, starts a great war between Heaven and Earth.
Damascus and Amelia's story will continue in the second book of the series, titled "Between Angels". Coming soon!
Between Heaven and Earth is a very sweet and very clean read. Damascus is a watchman. He isn't allowed to fall in love, but that doesn't stop him from forming an instant connection with Amelia that puts him in danger of judgement from the elders. No matter what they do, they can't seem to stay away from each other. When Damascus leaves, Amelia tries to move on but finds that she just can't. The fight for their live is long and arduous, but worth it. I would recommend this to teens who are interested in books about angels and demons!
