Sing For Me by Gracie Madison

Summary from Goodreads

Madeline Noel fled war-torn Heaven to hide within the mortal world, but the blessing that could protect her from evil is the holy realm's forbidden power.

As a talented soprano for the Eden Theatre Company, Madeline hides among prima donnas and tone-deaf flutists. Her perfect voice may entertain audiences, but a careless laugh may shatter glass, and her greatest scream can kill. To control her unrestrained voice, the angels forbid Madeline from embracing the emotions that strengthen her song. Anger. Fear.

Love.

The demon-hunter Damascus vows to defend Madeline from Hell’s relentless evil, but he cannot protect her from her own feelings. Though they deny their dangerous attraction, her guardian becomes her greatest temptation.

Surrendering to desire may awaken the gift suppressed within Madeline’s soul, and neither Heaven nor Hell will allow such absolute power to exist.


My review

*I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*

Sing For Me is a story about Madeline Noel, who is an angel living in the mortal world. She is a choir and has a voice with whom she performs in a theatre. Her voice is not only perfect, but also dangerous and her scream can kill. Therefore Madeline is forbidden to feel emotions that strengthen her voice. These emotions are anger, fear and love. Damascus is a demon-hunter who has to protect Madeline from the evil. And of course they fall in love. Will Madeline surrender to this desire?

I give this book 4 stars.

This book started too slow for me. So slow that something happened that never has happened before. I fell asleep during reading it. Twice. But then, Shiloh came into the story and it became funny. I begin to really like it. The storyline became interesting and different from other books.

This book was unique, unlike anything I’ve read before. There is fantasy, there is action, there is romance and there is the theatre, which is awesome. The characters are lovely. I actually didn’t like Damascus so much, but Shiloh with his funny comments makes up to it. The action is pretty cool too.

The only reason I didn’t give this book 5 stars is because of me falling asleep and Damascus.

But I highly recommend this book.
