Welcome to the Middle of the Road. This is a combined book review blog, one that is both cherished and prided over. We want everyone who comes to our page to find something of intrest to them, so when they walk away they are either satisfied or intrigued. We are both avid readers and have a passion about books that few of our other friends do. Both of us are happy to share our experiences in the book world and at times some goodies too. Enjoy your time here, and if you are anything like us, you could spend hours just wandering aimlessly through the world of books, just like a lazy afternoon down the Middle of the Road.

Book Review: Angelfire
Ellie has been having nightmares for awhile now, her parents even took her to a shrink to see what was going on. Unfortunately the problems are a little more difficult that what a normal shrink could fix. Ellie is the Preliator, it's latin for warrior, even though she feels anything but warrior like after the dreams.
Will is doing everything he can to protect Ellie, as her Guardian he is supposed to have her safety as his number one priority. But after spending over 500 years watching out for her, and losing her time and time again, his feelings have changed to something much deeper.
Lying to her family, friends, and well everyone else who comes into her life is something that Ellie can't stand, but knows is necessary. She wants to be just a normal human girl, with normal human problems, and she really wants Will to kiss her, even though she is pretty sure he doesn't feel that way about her.
After facing one particularly ugly Reaper, they find out about the Enshi. An ancient evil that not only eats souls, but destroys them so they are never seen again. And as Ellie is the Preliator, and reborn each time she dies into a new human body, the last thing she needs is the Enshi getting a hold of her soul.
Setting out with Will, Lauren ( a real psychic ) and Nathanial ( another Angelic Reaper ), they set themselves up to rid the world of the Enshi, if they can find it before the demonic reapers do. They have to find it first or else the Apocalypse will be among us, and all will perish.
I loved this book, and can't wait for book 2 in the trilogy!!!!
