As a manager in an advertising company she’s been working with the gorgeous Alex for two years. The have a friendship based upon the image she portrays whilst she’s at work and it helps to keep her sane. One mad, crazy night spent sharing their secrets and a lot of wine result in them ending up in bed together and their relationship changes. When Alex explains that the reason he doesn’t date is because someone broke his heart, how can Ceri admit that she feels a deep connection to him?Ceri knows she’s different. What she doesn’t fully appreciate is that her task in life is to correct a series of incidents that alter the course of many of the people’s lives with whom she comes into contact. She’s simply putting right little errors that could ripple outwards and change the course of their destiny. However; when she finds herself getting pulled into things that happen around her, how can she prove that she really has made a difference? Is it all in her head?She’s alone for a reason; she’s not meant to fall in love in her earthly life.

Love is a powerful emotion, but can it change the course of someone’s destiny? Ceri is ‘Falling’…Click here to read the first chapter.This book was very different to how I expected it to be. it was definitely a lot more realistic than i was expecting.I thought Ceri was an excellent character. I really felt for her. She has clearly affected by everything she's been through. she is a genuinely good person.I thought Alex was  awesome. They are clearly meant to be together. I absolutely loved hearing his side of the story. I always find it great to see other people's perspective on things.Seb and Sheena were excellent. I really liked how Ceri could feel how Seb felt, that they had this special twin bond. Being away from your best friends is hard. After university all my friends went back to their respective home towns and we don't get to see each other as much. Sometimes that can be a real strain on the relationship. I thought it was really great how even though Sheena is away a lot they never become distant.For some reason I really don't trust Mark. I don't know what it is but I just have this feeling he's trouble. I'm worried he's taking advantage of her. Since reading Forbidden I trust Mark a lot more.I thought Ethan's explanation of that was happening to Ceri was perfect. He clearly understood what was going on.I'm looking forward to reading Forbidden as this book ended on a bit of a cliffhanger.Linn has kindly offered to giveaway:1 x £20/$30 Amazon Gift CardPlus3 winners to choose from a selection of Linn B Halton’s Novel:Never AloneTouched by the LightThe Restaurant @ The MillBeing a Sceptic is oh so EasyThe Quintessential GeminiTo enter just use the Rafflecopter link below.a Rafflecopter giveaway

    I'd like to thank the author for sending me an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.I read this book in one day, on a wet, windy Sunday and I found it to be an easy interesting read. The characters were easily likeable especially the main character Ceri.As the book continued you found yourself in the middle of Ceri's life, Ceri see spirits that help her to assist people in need, sometimes it's just an uneasy feeling as is the case with her twin brother Seb's fiancée, Seb doesn't believe in spirits and dismisses Ceri's concerns.The book follows her in the lead up to Seb's wedding, it also explores her relationship with her work colleague, Alex, with a will they won't they scenario. This leads to a cliff hanger that sets the next book up perfectly.A good start to a series of books that is building to the follow up books, I have already added these to my wish list and look forward to catching up Ceri and everyone else in her life, following the twists and turns of her destiny.

    I didn't realise this was part of a trilogy, so was left gasping, "What??" when it finished without closure. I was totally immersed in the fascinating world of psychics and angels, and the likeability of the main characters made it perfect. I do wish I'd paid more attention to the Amazon blurb, instead of just rushing in because I love the subject matter. I'd still have bought it, but might not have read it until the others are out. I do wish it had been a complete book, but I won't mark it down because of my own impatience. It deserves five stars because I loved it, I loved Ceri, I adored Alex, and it left me wanting more.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this quick read over two evenings in my hot-tub. Ceri is a fasinating character and you immediately warm to her and her ability to see angels. Her work collegue Alex sounds delicious and I was secretly rooting for them to get together. This was very easy to sink into thanks to the writing style and was disappointed when I reached the end so quickly. I will just have to get the second book now!!Sweet romance with an angelic feel, give it a try it will wing you away from reality!!

    I was cautious of this one. First person and present tense are things I usually avoid, but despite this, it grabbed me from the first page. I couldn't help myself and had to read on. My brain was saying, 'but you don't like this' and I ignored it, merrily, and read on. What a captivating read. Brilliantly described paranormal experiences made me feel like I was watching them on a film. Not what I expected from the story at all. Very glad I ignored my prejudice and read on. Great ending, too.

    Firstly I’d like to thank the author for sending me this ARC to read and give an honest review. I have previously enjoyed some of Linn’s other books. This book is part one in a fascinating series of three novellas about Ceri’s Journey.The very first sentence captured my interest because it mentioned Ceri’s ability to see angels – angels and the afterlife have always intrigued me so I knew from just one line that I would be hooked on Ceri’s story. It was obvious from the start that she had received plenty of negative feedback about her ability and it made me feel sad that she had to suppress her instinctive need to talk about it, if I were in Ceri’s position I would definitely want to share my experiences! The first angel sighting that was mentioned gave me chills as I was able to visualise it so clearly and the goosebumps continued with each sighting thereafter (I’m such a scaredy-cat).Ceri had a non-identical twin brother called Seb who was not afraid to tell her what he thought about her ability, he certainly wasn’t a believer so Ceri kept her feelings to herself even when she knew that Seb’s life was about to be thrown into turmoil in some way.I liked how Ceri admitted to becoming a different version of herself whenever she walked into the office of the advertising company she worked for, I think everyone has different versions of themselves for different situations so this really got me thinking about the various versions of me .Ceri was a wonderful character, she used her ability to help people and I admired her for that but whenever she wasn’t able to help someone she felt incredibly guilty. It was during those times that I wanted to reach into the book and give her a hug to make her feel better!There was a great mix of supporting characters, I particularly liked Alex who worked with Ceri because he seemed fun – I could easily picture him in my mind and I loved the good effect he had on Ceri. However, as the story progressed his behaviour began to confuse me, not in a bad way but in a ‘I have to know why he’s acting like that‘ kind of way. This was why I felt so relieved when I got to read from Alex’s perspective, I was surprised and intrigued by what I discovered about him – this is exactly why I love to read a story from both sides, I think it really opens up the storyline.Once again the authors descriptive writing made me feel like I was living the story instead of just reading it, so expect to feel a variety of emotions as you follow Ceri on her journey. The end left my heart pounding furiously, I had all sorts of questions and possible theories racing through my mind so I can’t wait to find out what happens next in Ceri’s Journey: Truth.This was a spiritual, emotional and thought-provoking read with a touch of romance, a great start to an intriguing series!

    Having already read and loved some of Linn B Halton’s books, I took ‘Falling’, the first in the Angels Among Us series, away on holiday. I’m a boater and sometimes time dedicated to reading can be limited. It has to engage me immediately therefore and keep me engaged. Falling engrossed me, totally. It’s beautifully written, a clarity and calmness in the author’s voice which drew me straight into Ceri’s world, a world where she co-exists with angels. Ceri doesn’t fall over them. She more experiences them on occasion, her strong intuition telling her they are simply there to direct her to intervene in a life event, thereby averting tragedy. She’s not spooked by them, though possibly by the fact that she’s different and doesn’t – yet – understand why. Thus, her intuition is screaming at her in regard to her twin brother’s upcoming wedding. Seb’s fiancée is going to hurt him, he’s going to ‘crumble’, yet Ceri has no way of knowing how, her frustration exacerbated by the fact that she can find nothing to dislike about her brother’s intended. The tragedy that ensues (and I’m not saying a word, which would definitely be a huge spoiler) had me stopping and taking deep breaths. The emotion around events at that time, Ceri’s emotions and those of her brother, as told through Ceri, were tremendously affecting and totally believable (although I didn’t want to believe it!). My heart broke for her brother – and for Ceri, too, who obviously blames herself for not doing … something.There is no ‘man’ in Ceri’s life. She’s tested the waters but dropping, ‘oh, by the way, I see angels’ into the conversation is a bit of a hindrance when it comes to relationships. There is, however, her co-worker Alex, whose sexuality is ambiguous. Though Ceri wonders, Alex is most definitely not the gay foil who often appears to offer counselling in single girl stories, yet he seems to have no significant other in his life. Indeed ‘any other’. He, too, is intuitive, we see that immediately. He’s easy on the eye, easy to get along with – and in love with Ceri. Deeply in love, yet acting on that love screams against his instincts. Intrigued?? Yes, so was I. I could tell you the whole story, Ceri’s and Alex’s coming together, his pulling away. His telling us why (Alex’s pov was a nice touch and perfectly timed). I think I’ve said enough though. Whether you believe in other worldly beings, have an interest in the paranormal or not, I can honestly say ‘Falling’ will draw you in and hold you right to the end, where it will leave you itching for book two. The cliffhanger on the last page is the real start of Ceri’s journey, I feel. I can’t wait to see where it takes her (and Alex).

    Falling begins with the reader being aware of Ceri and her twin Seb’s bond. Her intuition is warning her there is a problem with his relationship and he’s going to get hurt. Ceri just can’t help her intuition getting in the way of allowing her to be close with his fiancée.We witness an incident where Ceri uses her gift – the gift that sets her apart from others and affects her relationships.Ceri keeps a journal which documents all the people she may have helped through using her ability. It’s up to the people whether they take notice or not so Ceri can never be totally sure if the people’s lives were changed by following her advice.Through Ceri’s work in an advertising agency we get to experience the great working relationship she has with Alex and the wariness with her boss.I loved the friendship she has with Sheena. Having known each other since starting school, they can easily pick up their friendship despite Sheena’s job as an interpreter taking her away for chunks of time. I think this quote says it all:“… I love that; it’s like I have a sister who comes back every now and again to rescue me from myself.”I also loved the Guyatri Mantra scene. Having been to Reiki training sessions, this is very authentic. How Ceri feels is a true representation. You can visualise her sitting there trying to plan an escape… and you can feel what happens.Ceri’s personal relationship with Alex becomes a lot clearer once we hear Alex’s side. I loved that we got to hear his side of the story too! You think to yourself ‘but of course’! and it’s a dilemma that has been argued about on a spiritual level through the ages. I think the twist that Halton puts on this is great.Although Falling is a paranormal romance, at its foundation is a women who wants to be loved … and accepted for who she is. I loved Ceri’s character. Feet firmly planted on the ground and wary of her ‘gift’ she is finding her way. At times strong and others vulnerable, she listens to her intuition and makes decisions.In this novella we have romance, the reality, conflict, a shock and a cliff-hanger (really can’t wait to see what happens next), Falling is a keeper for me because it totally held me and has left me wanting more.I would like to thank the author for providing an ecopy in exchange for an honest review.

    Do you believe in premonitions? Ceri has always had a “gift” for seeing or feeling things about people, some are good things, some are bad, but she cannot always stop what will happen. Confused, the man she secretly has feelings for becomes her confidant, but negative feelings about their relationship tears them apart before it really begins. Both search for spiritual answers, but will they find what they need to know to share their love? Do people make their own destiny or is our path already mapped out?Very short, character-driven and not overly filled with deep spirituality, as Ceri discovers who she really is, she must settle into her purpose on earth, but will she be happy without love?Falling by Linn B. Halton is a quick, light read that touches on emotions, premonitions and the purpose in life. Ceri is a wonderful character, kind, intelligent and hurting. Alex is vaguer, yet there is a special feeling that he emits. A thought-provoking novella with a positive spin on the good in people, their gifts and their destiny. A romance with so much more, fleshed out, this would be a delightful novel.Series: Angels Among Us - Book 1Publication Date: October 3, 2013Publisher: HarperImpulseISBN-13: 9780007553891 Genre: Romance | SpiritualityPrint Length: 112 pagesAvailable from: Amazon |  Barnes & Noble

    Jane Hunt Writer First StepsJane Hunt Writer Book Reviews FacebookJane Hunt Writer Book Reviews Google+'Falling' is the first in a trilogy about Ceri, whose name gives us a clue to her true identity. The connection with Ceri is immediate; she's a good person, who wants to make a difference but struggles because she feels like a cuckoo in the nest. Ceri experiences extraordinary contact in an understated, believable way. Like Ceri, you are aware something out of the ordinary is going on but it's in your peripheral vision and you can't quite make it out. It's scary, if you don't acknowledge it; maybe you can put it down to a daydream.Ceri's relationship with her twin Seb, is interesting, they are yin and yang. Seb struggles to understand the 'other' side of Ceri but loves her anyway. Alex is a work colleague but their bond is stronger than that, even though they don't socialise out of work. Desperation makes Ceri share her secret with Alex who has one of his own which he can't share with her. The ending is happy for now but you question how long this will be the case with Ceri last experience.This is a feel good, easy to read story about faith and love in all its forms. I'm looking forward to 'Forbidden' the second in the series.Linn B. Halton

    ARC provided by Publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review One of the things I love the most about getting to read books before they are published is that I am not influenced in my choice by other peoples reviews. I say that here because this book may not be to everyone's taste but I loved it!This is Book 1 of a trilogy. It's a short read, only 108 pages, it ends on a major cliffhanger (although the next part is due to be released in November 2013)and, whilst it is a romance, it explores aspects of the paranormal through the experiences of Ceri - the female character in the book.Ceri has a very strong sense of deja vu and sees what she believes are angels who somehow guide her to take actions that will influence the outcome of a stranger's life for the better without them ever being aware of her doing so but she meticulously keeps a journal listing them all. The few people she has told about this ability have very quickly distanced themselves from her, with the exception of her twin brother who prefers not to hear about it. He's due to get married very soon and Ceri has a huge sense of foreboding that the Bride is going to do something to break his heart but she's not sure what.Her co-worker Alex is the kind of male friend every girl should have and whilst he never discusses his sexuality, or any aspect of his life outside of the office, Ceri is fairly certain he is gay. Ceri also has feelings for him that have nothing to do with their working relationship.I really don't want to add too much more because I feel it would spoil the story for other readers. But I for one can't wait for the next book to find out what happens next!

    Ceri can see Angels. They appear to give her warnings so that she can help other people. Although Ceri has been able to help many people, she is resentful of how her premonitions have impacted on her personal life. Whilst Ceri is saving other people her love life has suffered as a consequence. There are few people she trusts to share her secret and she is feeling alone and isolated. Ceri is a twin and finds it incredible that her twin brother Seb neither shares her gift nor tries to understand it. Ceri struggles with trusting someone close to her and telling them about the burden she carries. What does life hold for Ceri and are things spiralling out of control for her?Having read Linn B Halton’s book Never Alone, I was thrilled to be offered the opportunity to read Ceri’s Journey. The subject matter interests me greatly and I was not disappointed with this great little book which I devoured in one sitting. Linn B Halton has created such interesting characters and I love the way they develop throughout the course of the book. The reader feels Ceri’s frustration about not being able to change the course of her own life when she has a hand in changing the destiny of others. I can highly recommend this book for those of you who love a good paranormal romance. The book ended on a cliff-hanger and has me desperate for the next book. I just didn’t want it to end! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Linn B Halton is a fantastic writer and her writing style will have you hooked from page one.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It's short, sweet, and has a plot that holds your attention. I don't like to give away the plot of any new story, I've always believed it is better to be surprised by what the book has to offer. However, this book is obviously from the title about angels being among us. At first I expected another young adult novel about even more fallen angels, but what I discovered was a completely new twist on what reader's have come to expect from forbidden romances of angels.The parapsychology for this book was well researched. You can tell that the author has a true appreciation and in depth knowledge of supernatural occurrences dealing with, well I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise. I am grateful to the writer that does pour some background expertise into their fiction. It's nice to think, debate, and question while enjoying a good read.I can tell that the writer is still growing, and I truly look forward to what she will bring us in the future. This book is the first in what appears to be a trilogy. The second book should be released in November 2013. I encourage you to give this book a try, as I think you will enjoy it.

    I read this book in one sitting. I was so caught up in the storyline that I couldn’t put it down. I loved everything about this novella. Ceri’s journey is deeply thought provoking and has really touched me emotionally. Linn has created something truly wonderful with this book.The moments, when Ceri sees her angels, are beautifully yet slightly eerily described. Altough Ceri finds herself in a huge turmoil in trying to understand her “special powers” I feel that the book had an extremely calming atmosphere about it.There is such a whirlwind of raw emotions, feelings and sensitivity. Getting to know both, Ceri and Alex, by using different points of views was brilliant. I also really loved the fact that by the end of the book I didn’t know too much about Ceri’s physical appearance or her background but a lot more about her feelings and psychic “powers”. I thought that this method of writing highlights the book’s topic even more.I cannot wait to read the other two parts of the novella. I am sure, we will find out a lot more about Alex and Seb (Ceri’s twin brother) in the books to come.

    I wanted to read this a while ago but after having some issues with NetGalley and files downloading, I missed the chance as it was archived before everything got sorted out. However, when I saw that it's been complied into one book and going on a blog tour, I couldn't resist taking part. Falling has drawn mixed emotions from me. It's a short, fast-paced read that had an interesting concept but I didn't really connect with it until the end. I felt the start was a bit all over the place and besides jumping here and there, there wasn't that much description. I felt I was told a lot of things--especially emotions--and I did find it hard to stick with. However, things did get more interesting towards the end and the cliff hanger has intrigued me. I won't say any more as I don't want to give anything away with this short read but I'm hoping there will be more romance at some point.I'm not sure what's install for Ceri, but I'll be reading and reviewing all books soon in time for my tour stop.

    Ceri works in an Advertising Agency and really has not come to terms with her gift. She sees angels. It leaves her feeling confused and not able to concentrate on other areas of her life.Ceri is one half of non-identical twins. Her brother, Seb is about to marry his sweetheart, but Ceri is uneasy about it. Alex is Ceri's best friend and work colleague. There is a mutual attraction and the tension between these two characters is hot but will they give into their feelings?I do enjoy novellas as a story can be wrapped up nicely in a quick read, but I also love what the author has achieved here, a novella that leaves you wanting the next part in this storyline.Linn B Halton certainly knows how to build the tension and leave the reader with a cliffhanger!5 out of 5. Waiting for next installment.

    What a lovely read. Linn B Halton’s style of writing in the first person gently flows with such ease, I was drawn into the story immediately and before I realised had read the first three chapters and wanted to just keep reading. There is a lovely air to the story; it gracefully glides along. Ceri and Alex are drawn to each other, yet equally, they are frightened of what this means and the feelings it evokes in them. They don’t necessarily understand or appreciate their own spiritual feelings or experiences and this clouds their judgement somewhat, causing a great deal of inner turmoil. I was on tenterhooks waiting to find out if they would be able to resolve these issues.Angels is a charming blend of romance and spirituality and being the first in a trilogy, I shall certainly be reading the next book when it is published.

    his was a short read. It was not an easy read, but it was a good read. It was not a romance book, although the relationship in this book had some romance. I would consider it more a paranormal story. Not a werewolf, vampire paranormal but more an angel paranormal. Ceri is a good person, who goes out of her way to help others, especially when she gets “the feeling” that a stranger needs help.Alex, Ceri’s co-worker, is a great friend. He is just a friend, rarely dates, and is always there for Alex. Until they develop feelings for each other and their relationship takes a uncomfortable feel to it. As we learn more about each of their lives, we realize the reason they are brought together.I cannot tell much more without giving away the story. So I shall end it with the recommendation to check out this series of novellas by Linn B Halton.

    What a wonderful start to this series! Ceri's journey; Angels is my first read from Linn B Halton, and I was intrigued. Ceri's life is so very complicated - having to manage her day to day activities in the 'real world', while constantly being confronted with the paranormal. And it was all so remarkably real. I felt as if I knew Ceri, and surprisingly enough could relate to her struggles. I found myself reading, and then laying back only to contemplate what I had previously read. It's a marvelous thing when a book forces you to really consider life. Even the exploration that Linn allows Alex to experience makes you wonder about your own purpose in life. Truly deep, though-provoking read! I can only imagine where Ceri's journey will lead...

    Angels is the first in a three part series called `Ceri's Journey' and I was totally blown away by the intensity of ideas, emotion and intrigue, packed into this 30,000 word story. I have read most of Linn's other books, and so I'm already a fan of her unique and very personal style of storytelling, which I can perhaps describe as like being told a heart rendering tale by a best friend. Angels is a powerful emotionally charged romance with supernatural/angelic suspense. It's Linn B Halton at her best yet. I won't give away spoilers and so can only say that I give Angels 5 stars unreservedly - and simply can't wait to read the next in this series!

    Wonderfully written, this book tells the first part of Ceri's journey of self-discovery and her budding romance with colleague, Alex. Ceri sees angels but what do they really want her to do? Are they guiding her or hindering her chance of leading a normal life?You don't have to be a believer in any of the suggestions made in the story to enjoy it. Linn B Halton's fluent, easy-to-read writing style will have you empathising with the characters and going on the journey with them.I can't wait for the second instalment!

    This was fab! I instantly took to Ceri. She's a beautifully likeable character, struggling with her "gift". The author has managed to keep an element of reality with the possibility of the existence of angels in life. The book leaves us on a bit of a cliff hanger, but still gives us a satisfied feeling at the end. Can't wait to read the next part :) I'm hoping there are more answers to the angels.

    First, I would like to thank the author Linn B. Halton for giving me this book for an honest review. This is a novella so a short read. I really enjoyed the main character Ceri, she is a really good person and she sees angels. I like her best friend Alex, they fit together. The book ended with a major cliff hanger, but since this is the first book in a series, I cannot wait to see what happens next.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this little novella. It's short, but it holds your interest, even through some quite esoteric stuff. It ends on a major cliffhanger so I'm pleased to already have the follow-up on my Kindle and to hear that the third is being released not too long after. The author has a very gentle first-person writing style that carries you along in the immediacy of the story without being alienating to a reader.

    What's great about Linn B. Halton is, she's reliable. Whenever you pick up a Halton book like [[ASIN:B00AJNIM26 Never Alone]] you know that you're going to get an interesting and unique read. The angels series serves that up on a designer platter, with interesting characterization and a plot line that leaves you wondering where this is all going.Bottom line: Read it, enjoy it, love it.

    What is is that Ceri sees? Are they really angels or is she imagining it all? And if they are angels where will this all lead - what kind of a life will Ceri have? An intriguing premise that raises a lot of questions for the reader and makes one wonder if angels really do exist.

    NOTE: I received this eARC via Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.I'm not sure I've got a whole lot to say about this one. Mainly because it was only a hundred pages. It was a quick read, if not an amazing one. I honestly believe that the trilogy this novella is a part of could've just be compiled in one book, so everything would have had more sense. But you know, author/publisher choice, so yeah.To be frank, I'd forgotten what this novella was about. I remembered it being about angels, but the rest was a bit foggy so I had to go back and look at some refreshing materials.Now that I'm certain I know what I'm talking about, I can say with a hand on my chest that this book both touched and infuriated me. It touched me because I really liked this deja vu thing that was going on with Ceri. I mean, she was pretty useful to whoever she was meant to help through her visions and I liked how she wanted to feel needed. To do something good for others, you know? And I had an idea of what she was and I liked it.But then her unhealthy life disappointed me. And her turning toward meditation and Eastern practices disgusted me. I mean, seriously? If she was really what she was, how could she do what she did? I don't know. I guess the angel theme speaks in a more personal level to me, as a believer. I just can't accept the unnatural stuff that angel-themed books try to sell. Still though, it was a good enough read, so I'm not giving it a bad rating.

    Falling (Angels Among Us) was short, but sweet. I gave the novella three stars, simply because of its length. There were parts in the story which could’ve been elaborated on and I would’ve loved to read more instances of Ceri’s gift playing out. They were my favourite parts. I understand this novella’s part of a trilogy which does soften the blow of such a short read and an abrupt ending (an exciting cliff-hanger). The main characters Ceri and Alex were very realistic in the way they behaved and spoke. I liked their complicated romance, it made the story even more gripping and I found myself routing for them to get together throughout. All in all, this was a quick read that I’d recommend to paranormal romance fans. I would’ve loved for it to be longer, but that’s me being greedy... Haha!
