Book Blitz with Excerpt: Guarding Angel by S.L. Saboviec @XpressoTours @Saboviec



Guarding Angel by S.L. Saboviec
Series: Falling Redemption #1
Publication date: May 19th, 2014
Genre: Adult / Fantasy

Synopsis (according to Goodreads):
Guardian angel Enael can't seem to keep her human Wards in check. They're the ones who choose their paths before reincarnating--she's just there to help make sure they stay on track. But it's not as easy as it might look.

When she meets and falls in love with charismatic Kaspen, a fellow Guardian, Enael's feelings about Heaven, Hell, demons, and the life she's known are turned upside down. Worse, angel-turned-demon Yasva, Kaspen's former love, still holds him in her clutches. Even as Yasva works toward obtaining complete control of Earth, she taunts and haunts Kaspen's and Enael's lives.

Now Enael is forced to face her past (which is centuries long and bursting with secrets), her present (which is terribly unfulfilling and full of questions), and her future (which becomes more uncertain as time passes). Armed with a newfound love and fear of losing it all, she must figure out how to save the world--and the angel she loves. Which side will win? Who will Kaspen choose? Will Heaven and Earth continue to exist, or will everything go to Hell?

Excerpt
I'd never visited Hell, so I wasn't certain where it was located, which would make it harder to get there. Instead of envisioning the place, I closed my eyes and pictured Kaspen. I reached for his essence, groping for him. Ah, there. As expected, his life spark was located somewhere other than Heaven or Earth. Darkness pulsated near him.

I took a deep breath and fixed my mind. Straining, I envisioned Kaspen's face, wondering where I would end up. I opened my eyes to the greens of the Garden melding together and fading.

This transition was nothing like the pleasant tingling I felt when moving between Heaven and Earth. Instead, it felt as though something cold and slippery were being poured over my body, into my mouth and nostrils, and squeezed through my pores. My stomach churned. Dimness enveloped me and the oiliness slid from my skin.

I found myself in front of a pit-marked rock face marred by a double swinging door. I tried to peer through the crack between the doors, but a figure blocked most of the dim, red light.

The doors burst open and I was knocked to the ground. A hood fell over my face. I tried to fade from Hell but couldn't. Something wrapped around the base of my wings, and my arms were forced behind me and bound.

"Help! Kaspen!"

I was wrenched forward and thrown over something--the shoulder of whatever creature had assaulted me, perhaps. Lurching footsteps carried me away from where I'd faded into Hell. I fought, but whatever bound my wrists and wings squeezed more tightly around them. I stopped struggling, clamped my lips together to keep from crying out.
