just a heads up…when starting “Earth Angel” make sure you don’t have anywhere you need to be or anything you need to do because you won’t want to stop reading until you’ve finished it all!! Trust me on this! The book starts off with an intriguing beginning that established the ‘fantasy-other-worldly’ existence and Lucy’s future quest, and the solid world building just keeps going from there. The main characters are so well-developed and fully realized, I feel like I know them personally. I think what I liked the most about this book was just the overall feel Stephanie Woods managed to create where it felt intimate, like a close friend was telling me this really awesome story that I didn’t want to stop listening to. There are some surprising twists and some parts that really catch you off guard… but that just made the book even more amazing. Totally unlike anything I’ve read before and I read a lot, especially with YA fantasy. There are some traditional elements here, naturally, but I thought that Woods did a terrific job of making the story feel like something we haven’t seen a million times before (rare in this genre!). I could see this having cross-genre appeal so even if Young Adult/ New Adult paranormal fantasy isn’t your fave, the terrific scene-building, suspenseful and thought-provoking plot, and engaging, authentic characters will appeal to a wide variety of readers, and I can’t wait for the next one to be available. Recommend.

Review by: Stacy Decker on June 8, 2016 :
"Earth Angel” by Stephanie Woods was a captivating novel and very impressive for a debut. There is such strong, vivid writing, and the characters are all fascinating, flawed, and going through their own drama. GREAT character development, and everything just felt “authentic” for lack of a better word – even though some parts are dark and definitely ‘fantastical’. Dialogue, interactions, scenes, descriptions…The formatting is messed up in some places and it could use some editing. The beginning seemed a bit slow and there are definitely some ‘familiar” topes here, but it develops its own personality and identity and the pace quickly picks up. Not perfect. But all in all a very good read that I’d recommend even to those who don’t normally read this sort of thing …try it, you’ll be pleasantly surprised! Ready for part 2, “Angel on My Shoulder”!

I really enjoyed this book, “Earth Angel” by Stephanie Woods as far as the story, plot, and characters are concerned. I did think the beginning was a little slow and with way too much ‘telling’ backstory and setup. I like Wood’s ‘voice’ and style of writing, just didn’t like all the narrative at the beginning. And there are some minor punctuation/proofing things I noticed as well. However, with that said, there is an interesting story here and some great character development, especially with Lucy. I thought it had some fresh ideas, and kept my attention from the intriguing/sad opening to the cliffhanger ending (you’ve been warned). It is a relatively quick read, one I finished in a few sittings (maybe I just didn’t want to stop reading…) but Woods takes her time in carefully developing the various storylines so that we the readers are thoroughly invested the whole way through. Will appeal to fans of Twilight, Hush, Hush, Lauren Kate books, etc…

Review by: Jesse Thomas on June 7, 2016 :
I am of somewhat mixed feelings on this novel, “Earth Angel” by Stephanie Woods. On one hand it is very creatively written with some of the most interesting and unique characters I’ve read in a long time (which says a lot), and I liked how each of them had their own unique set of circumstances. But on the other, at times I felt almost like this book was too much at once, and seemed to lose focus of the arc and kept going off in different directions. I feel like it would have been better if it were shorter and more focused, with fewer subplots. It seemed to take a long time for any real inciting incident to happen (other than Lucy ruminating over losing her fiancé), and there was far too much telling narrative in the beginning, where we should have more engagement and dialogue. But that is just my opinion, other people may disagree. Needs some light proofreading. But it is a good story with an original plot and interesting characters, and I can see fans of YA paranormal/fantasy liking it. The chemistry with Sam and Lucy was really hot and I enjoyed their relationship. The supporting cast was decently fleshed out, and it does make the reader want to see how it will play out in the next one. Recommend for mature YA/NA fans of paranormal romantic adventure.
