Sixteen-year-old Rayna sees angels, and has the medication and weekly therapy sessions to prove it. Now in remission, Rayna starts fresh at a new school, lands a new job, and desperately tries for normalcy. She ignores signs that she may be slipping into the world she has tried so hard to climb out of. But these days, it’s more than just hallucinations that keep Rayna up at night. Students are dying, and she may be the only one who can stop it. Can she keep her job, her sanity, and her friends from dying at the hands of angels she can't admit to seeing?

“A Shimmer of Angels was a fantastic, extraordinary book from Month9Books. I adored it! Every single page I turned, I kept being pushed and grabbed into Reyna's world, full of angels, and maybe a few murders in between.” – Michelle, That Girly Bookwork

"It has what every Young Adult loves to read in books: romance, a good-looking and nice angel, a hot, fallen angel, drama, mystery, suspense.”Genesis, Gen Gen Book Blog

“This book has completely caught me off guard. I thought it would be good, but I didn't know it would be amazing!! I mean, look at that COVER ... who could turn away from it?? It draws you in immediately. Then you step into the book and realize it's better then you could have expected.” –Courtney, Bookaholicsxoxo
Rayna struggles to piece her life back together, but hiding in plain sight from the police, the SS Crazy, and the Fallen isn’t a foolproof plan -- something Kade, the World’s Worst Roommate, reminds her of every day. The late nights of failing to teach Ray how to protect herself against the Fallen are getting to Kade, changing him in ways he doesn’t like, and after a family emergency sends Ray back into Cam’s arms, Kade decides he’s had enough. News of Rayna’s resurfacing brings both angels and the Fallen to San Francisco by the dozens, all eyes scouring the city for the girl with the gray wings. Rayna will need both Kade and Cam’s help to ensure her family’s safety, navigate the new dangers and enemies springing up all over the city, and manage the surprises that arise with her new set of wings.

“I was literally biting my nails because the intensity of the story was so strong…”Genesis, Gen Gen Book Blog

“Suspenseful with a different take on angels, A Slither of Hope has only strengthened my admiration of the Angel Sight series and my place in the fandom of Lisa M. Basso.”Laurie, Author

“She does a great job with the angels versus demons theme in both books and really makes the characters come to life for the reader so that we feel their pain and suffering. And when they succeed, we feel like WE have accomplished something, too.” – Erika, WS Momma Readers Nook

  1. Thanks for the post. Both books look like a good one to read.

  2. These sound *so* good! Even though we're dealing with paranormal stories here, I think it's great how (it sounds like) she introduces Rayna to helping protect other students. Teens have a lot going on, more than adults give them credit for sometimes, I think. So we have this character who is starting at a new school, a new job, and trying to be normal/hold on to her sanity. Add in the deaths, and maaaan do I feel sorry for her. Would love to read these :) I wonder if the library has the first book...
    Oh, also, I love that Lisa likes video games! She should check out Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller (if she sees this). It's like a video game merged with a novel and is such a neat way to present a story. I'd love to see authors go that route in the future, because interacting in a game, in your own time, getting visuals of what was in the author's head... Just really interesting. And, I hope she didn't really name her cats A and B :-P But I'm glad she doesn't bake with animals! Is that a reference to her pets, or is she veg*? :)

  3. This sounds a very interesting concept. Thanks for this opportunity.

  4. I would like to win this - I think my daughter would love it!
