Someone is trying to kill Lexie. Her estranged grandmother demands Lexie talk to her. Her grandmother explains that Lexie is not 100% human. She has Dark Angel blood in her, and she has special powers. Grandmother further explains that Lexie has come to the attention of Ellasar, a rogue Dark Angel who has become a vampire. Ellasar starts showing up in her dreams, and to an extent he can control Lexie. Ellasar explains that if Lexie agrees to join him he will make her immortal, and protect her.
Terrified by things she doesn't understand Lexie is not sure what to do. But when people start to die and her family is threatened she decides to fight Ellasar. But she is just now becoming aware of her powers. She is nowhere strong enough to beat Ellasar. So she enlists the help of a very unusual bodyguard. Together they slowly get Ellasar to release his grip on Lexie somewhat. But he is still around, and he still wants Lexie. Can Lexie perfect her powers to the point she can fight Ellasar as an equal? And most importantly, can she do it before she falls for the numerous temptations Ellasar offers?
Angel's Kiss is a solidly written book. Plot and character development are very nice. The plot is straight, with no twists and turns, except for the final resolution which not many readers are going to see coming. Readers will empathize with Lexie. She is just a young girl who is in way over her head due to nothing she did. The book reads fast, and is a page-turner. Angel's Kiss is one of the better paranormal/suspense books I've read in quite a while.
