Product Description

Strange things have been happening to 12-year-old Vero Leland. All of a sudden (to the surprise of everyone), Vero is outrunning everyone on the track and is clearing hurdles effortlessly. He is seeing strange things too . . . hideously frightening things that nobody else can see. Only when a stranger takes him to the "Ether," does Vero finally understand who he really is: a guardian angel in training. Vero must accept his destiny and undergo training, leaving everything behind including his friends and family. With a great evil growing, is Vero the one who can defend both worlds?

Publisher's Description

The Fiercest of Warriors?

Vero Leland always suspected he was different from others his own age, ever since his childhood attempts to fly. But he never could have predicted the truth—or how much his life was about to change.

Soon after his twelfth birthday, Vero learns he is a guardian angel and is abruptly transported to the Ether, the spiritual realm that surrounds the earth. Yet before he can be counted among these fierce warriors, Vero must learn to master his growing powers, competing with other angels-in- training and battling demonic creatures known as maltures as well as mythical creatures such as the leviathan.

Until his instruction is complete, Vero needs to alternate between the Ether and his regular life. If he survives training and accepts his destiny—a destiny he did not choose—he must leave everything behind, including his family and the life he loves. Meanwhile, an evil is growing—the maltures are rising, and Vero appears to be their target.

Author Bio

Laurice Elehwany Molinari, a veteran film and TV writer in Hollywood for over two decades, has penned over thirty scripts for various studios and networks. Her very first feature script, written while a fellow at the American Film Institute, became Columbia Picture’s critically acclaimed children’s classic, My Girl. She went on to pen The Brady Bunch Movie and The Amazing Panda Adventure. Laurice lives with her husband and two children in Los Angeles, the City of Angels, where her lifelong love for our heavenly guardians inspired her to write a book about them.


Editorial Reviews

Vero Leland wants to fly, and not just that, he feels like he should fly, like it’s a natural state for him. An adopted child of a nurse and an analyst, Vero at 12 is smarter, stronger, faster, and better than most of the kids he goes to school with, and it shows. He understands college-level writing assignments and can leap multiple hurdles in a single bound. Truly, Vero is different. But it’s only when he’s trapped by evil creatures that he realizes how different: he is destined to become a guardian angel. He can escape into the mystical Ether to learn how to fly and defend his future charges, along with other fledgling angels, and more adventure is surely on its way. His family and friends are mostly unaware, but Vero believes in his future and has faith. This book has definite Christian and spiritual themes, though they are carefully measured and not totally overpowering. It may not appeal to all adventure and fantasy readers, but despite the potentially heavy-handed good-versus-evil plot, it’s an easygoing read.--- Stacey Comfort
Readers are given a glimpse into the world of angels and demons in this tale of adventure. Vero Leland, a 12-yearold boy with a passion for flight, discovers he’s a guardian angel after saving a classmate’s life. Vero is literally thrown into an ancient battle of good versus evil as he struggles to accept his calling and finally finds his wings. Molinari provides a stimulating plot alongside a fascinating view of angelic duties. The action is well-balanced and exciting. Although character development feels a bit rushed, motivations and dialogue remain within the realm of belief. Potential readers should be aware that Jewish theology is prevalent throughout the story. This book is a good fit for older kids and young teens, especially boys. KLK
