We'd all like a guardian angel, but would you want to be one
Not fit to be a daughter. Not fit to be a friend. Not fit to be an angel. Two girls are inextricably linked by destiny, not choice.
Stephanie is friendless, strange, a misfit.
Freya can't stop seeing angels.
But when one of those angels begins to stalk her, its shadow following her everywhere, Freya is forced to make decisions from which there is no turning back.
Outstanding prose is married to a suspenseful plot and a quiet humour. - THE TIMES - Amanda Craig
Stands out for its original subject and plot ...Each book takes McNish into new territory, and this one is both assured and thought-provoking. - THE BOOKSELLER - Nikki Gamble
Tense, quirky and highly individual, this story has plenty going for it. - TIMES EDUCATIONAL SUPPLEMENT - Nicholas Tucker
A deft construction - McNish vividly portrays two worlds in the light of each other, creating a thin space between them that makes for a moving and thought provoking tale. - BOOKS FOR KEEPS
What a book. I simply couldn't put it down ... a highly charged look at personal spirituality... the writing is effortless and elegant and as it slips between character perspectives, Angel never loses an air of authenticity. And at moments, it reaches the sublime. I loved it. - THE BOOKBAG
A fascinating read. - CAROUSEL
This neat combination of teen angst and behavioural ethics is complex and charged. - THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
This unusual fantasy is made plausible by a very strong depiction of the underpinning pattern of teenage anxieties and everyday angst. - THE BOOKSELLER - Lesley Agnew
Geoff Taylor was born in Lancaster, England in 1946. He studied Graphic Design at Chesterfield College of Art. After five years or so of working in advertising agencies in Nottingham, Geoff turned to illustrating book covers for most of the top fantasy writers of our time, both adult and children's fiction. Geoff was one of the illustrators for the legendary Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of ''The War of the Worlds'' album. Since 1994 he has added to some of the rich imagery of ''Games Workshop'' and the Black Library. Perhaps his true passions are best reflected in his wildlife paintings, especially wolves. He now lives in Cumbria with his wife. Find out more from his website www.geofftaylor.btinternet.co.uk.
