Review by Suze
Ceri sees angels, people who are no longer there who are warning her, so she can prevent awful things from happening. A heavy task has been given to her. Alex is her colleague and they love working together. They've become good friends, but nothing more. Ceri likes him very much though, only she thinks he isn't interested. When they finally start meeting after work it's time for Ceri to tell Alex her biggest secret. She doesn't expect him to be supportive, but he is and even more than that he's determined to help her.
Ceri falls more and more in love with Alex, but that isn't what's supposed to happen. Being together might even cause more problems for them than being apart. Ceri is learning things about herself and she's starting to develop the side of herself she used to keep hidden. With some guidance she can do so many good things. Only by giving in to that side she needs to give something up as well. Can she really do that?
Falling is a story about angels. Ceri sees more than most people and there's a reason for it. She's such a good person, but being good also means being altruistic. Because of that she has to take some difficult decisions. She doesn't have a regular romance with Alex, it's so much more. That made this book really interesting. Their relationship is complicated and I kept hoping they would find some happiness.
I really enjoyed reading about Ceri's experiences. It was amazing to see her grow. At first she isn't aware of all of her abilities, but slowly she discovers what she's capable of. Alex is a sweet guy and he wants the best for Ceri. He even seeks help to know what to do, but the advice he gets isn't what he wants to hear. Sometimes loving someone with all your heart can be really tough, even if it's beautiful. I enjoyed reading this book very much, it's unusual and really good. Linn Halton's writing is amazing and her stories are always special. That's how I can only describe this one as well, it has that distinctive hint of magic I love so much. Falling is really romantic, but in a different way than most love stories. If you like something a little bit alternative I think you will enjoy it very much.
