In the aftermath of World War III, the world has become a dangerous place. The ruthless dictator, Equis, and his army, Armageddon, are quickly taking over major metropolitan areas on the west coast of the United States. The end of humanity is imminent. Their one hope lies in the hands of a seventeen year old girl, Alexa. When Almana volunteers to leave Heaven to guide Alexa, she never thought that her own destiny would include falling in love with a human. Now, cursed to remain on Earth forever, Almana finds that her task is much more than she bargained for.
What people are saying on Goodreads:
“Wow! This story hooked me from page one! A heavenly, heartbreaking and heartwarming tale full of believable characters you’ll love, and love to hate. I literally could not put it down! I believe I have found my next “must read” author!” -Regina O’Connell author of “Wren”
“A beautiful story of a very human angel on a mission and a girl who is destined to save the world. It is a story of love and duty, of good and evil, of war and the battle for peace. Beautifully written, this story is addictive and compelling.” -Renata D’Silva author of “A Sister’s Promise” (as seen on Goodreads)
“Julayn writes eloquently and her descriptions are so visual that you can picture them in your mind. I particularly love the parts of the novel when it focus on Almana’s inner thoughts and loneliness – she is the heartbroken angel who comes to earth to help a girl save the planet in WWIII. Paragraphs like this were enchanting where the words dance on the page: “As happy as I am with Alexa and her family, I’ve felt bottled up, like my wings have been tied. It makes me feel claustrophobic at times. I turn ninety degrees and head straight up into the night’s sky, breaking through the thick clouds. I fly as high and as fast as I can before I hit the ceiling that traps me to this world. A cruel reminder of how alone I truly am.” The author makes these aspects of Almana’s loneliness so real that I wonder if she knows something about the unseen world that we don’t. What a great surprising read.” -Sherry
“ALMANA by Julayn Adams is a lovely story set within a YA dystopian novel. Almana, nicknamed Ali, is an angel sent on a dangerous mission to help a girl named Alexa realize her full potential. Along the way she is adopted into Alexa’s family and fall’s for her brother. The love story is quite beautiful as is the prose that the author employs…
The story delves into many matters including love, jealousy, cliques, gossip, good vs. evil and the afterlife. It was an interesting read from start to finish. I cannot wait to read the next installment in the series which I understand is to be titled, VISION.” -Alyce
