The Ether: Vero Rising (An Ether Novel)
Ever since Vero was a child he has always wanted to fly; he has always loved the feeling of the air in his face. One day, riding on the bus, Vero sees a car swerve into his lane driven by a man with fiery red eyes. No one else could see the man, so Vero is taken to a psychiatrist to examine his sanity. There Vero is chased by demonic creatures onto the roof, and falls nine stories to his death. He is greeted by the angel Uriel, who tells him that Vero is a guardian angel, and as such he will have to go to Guardian Angel School, where he will learn to fly. As he and his fellow classmates go on different assignments as part of their training, they grow closer as a team. Vero returns to Earth and it is as if the demons had never happened. Vero tries to master guardian angel duties; however, as Vero is sent on increasingly difficult missions, he struggles to keep them secret from his family.
I liked this book. I liked that Vero and other characters were three-dimensional and had cares and feelings and realistic motivations. It was really easy to see Vero’s character development, and he improved a lot from the beginning to the end of the book, which was really good.
