Out of the Blue
"Sometimes, I imagine alternate endings to the story: last-minute miracles, touches of magic. I picture how things might have gone, if I wasn’t there. If I’d left just a few minutes later. If I hadn’t been alone. It doesn’t make any difference. One way or another, the crash always comes. 

Ten days after Jaya Mackenzie’s mum dies, angels start falling from the sky. Smashing down to earth at extraordinary speeds, wings bent, faces contorted, not a single one has survived. 

Hysteria mounting with every Being that drops, Jaya’s father uproots the family to Edinburgh intent on catching one alive. But Jaya can’t stand this obsession and, struggling to make sense of her mother’s sudden death and her own role on that fateful day, she’s determined to stay out of it. 

When her best friend disappears and her father’s mania spirals, things hit rock bottom and it’s at that moment something extraordinary happens: An angel lands right at Jaya’s feet, and it’s alive. Finally she is forced to acknowledge just how significant these celestial beings are. 

Set against the backdrop of the frenzied Edinburgh festival, OUT OF THE BLUE tackles questions of grief and guilt and fear over who we really are. But it’s also about love and acceptance and finding your place in this world as angels drop out of another."

I actually just came across this one the other day, but I'm already so intrigued by it! I'm getting some Laini Taylor vibes from that synopsis, and I'm really just interested to see how this storyline is handled.

  1. This sounds interesting! I want to know why the angels are falling.

  2. It gave me Laini Taylor vibes too. I hadn't heard of this book before but it sounds so unique. I may have to check it out!

  3. Like Angela said, I already want to know why the angels are falling! This one's new to me but with a premise like that (plus Edinburgh!!!), I'll be adding this.

  4. I never really read angel books but it's nice to see Edinburgh feature as a location. It's a beautiful historic city that I've spent a lot of time in over the years.
