header_description

Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city that revolves around idolizing Immortals like him. He grew up in the spotlight, and in less than a week, he’ll become the youngest full-fledged Guardian ever. People around the world are lining up to pay for him to keep them safe. His lifelong dream of becoming a hero is finally within his grasp–and he can’t afford to let the parties, paparazzi, or red carpets distract him.

But Jackson’s high-profile life takes an unexpected turn when he meets seventeen-year-old Maddy. She’s smart and down-to-earth, and sees Jackson for who he is and not for his celebrity. They forge an instant–and electric–connection. Their vastly different backgrounds seem like the only obstacle in their path of being together…until something much more dangerous threatens to destroy their chance at love.

Because not everyone worships the Angels: a bitter killer is murdering the Guardians one by one. And it’s up to Maddy to save Jackson–he’s next in the killer’s sights.

Set in a reimagined Los Angeles that sparkles with glamour and celebrity worship, Scott Speer’s Immortal City is charged with passion and haunted by themes of power and idolatry.

    I’m always up for an angel book, and I’m even more intrigued by a guys POV. And I’m really happy with the new cover. Great pick and thanks for visiting 🙂

    I’ve seen this one around a lot, but I’m not so sure about it, yet. I’ve had mixed feelings about the different angel books I’ve read. Who knows? Maybe this will be the one to hit it out of the ball park for me. Thanks for stopping by!

    Great choice, I can’t wait to read this! I got an ARC of it at Comic Con but unfortunately haven’t had the time to start it yet. The book sounds great and I love the cover!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    However naturally wary I am of angel books, I’m so intrigued by this one. It sounds like the perfect concept to introduce alongside angel lore.

    Have an amazing reading week!

    I love that since the cover is just the guy, it’s soooo simple! I hadn’t heard of this one before but it sounds great – I always love the angel stories when they’re “out.” This is definitely going on my wishlist.

    PS: I am also from Canada, St. Catharines (Niagara Region) 😀 So that is exciting I have some fellow Canadian bloggers I now know!

    I’m looking forward to this as well. It involves angels like a lot of books, but the fact that they are in the open instead of hidden makes this a very different story.

    My WOW

    I hope you like this book when you get the chance to read it, Giselle. I’ve had it for a few weeks now (so glad this is the final cover and not what the ARC has as a cover) but I’ve been holding off on reading it, saving it for the Debut Author Challenge. 🙂
