Giveaway & Guest Post with Author Amy Lignor of the Angel Chronicles

Matthew & Emily Become ‘Marvel’ Characters!

Wouldn’t it be interesting to see the angel/warrior team become part of The Justice League? After all…they certainly would fit. The angel/warrior team joins with Superman, Wonder Woman and their friends in order to protect and defend the people! I can see the headline now.

I can also see Matthew’s costume now. He would be the shiniest of all - you’re talking solid gold. The cracks would be there, of course - the cracks in the armor that come from life and saving others. But the cracks would gleam with white hot light as he flew to each and every person who needed him. His blade would be like King Arthur’s famous Excalibur, yet the gold sheen would be so bright that it would literally blind his opponents, causing them to have to fight in sunglasses if they even stood a chance. The Warrior would be young, so the rippling biceps of Superman would not yet be his; but the stunning blue eyes and the dirty blonde hair would set hearts afire as he battled to save the people on earth.

Emily…well, she would be a bit more difficult to costume, I have a feeling. In some people’s minds she would be dressed in the 1950’s regalia of a greaser. The dark red hair, the black eyes shining behind her own shades (which she would have to wear if Matthew was her partner, or even she’d go blind). Her power would not come from a weapon or x-ray vision of any kind (although I have a feeling she would kill for Wonder Woman’s invisible jet just to be able to tease Michael and Gabriel up above). Emily would remain her ‘angel’ self. A tad bit worn around the edges, but when she opened her mouth - when she stood before the heartless with ‘The Power of One’ - she would simply ask them to choose. Right or wrong, they would have a choice as to where they would be sent, and then they would fall to the fiery pit or rise to the blazing light of peace.

And while they fought in The Justice League by the side of the amazing superheroes that everyone has grown to love and cherish, more and more people out there would raise their glasses to the two odd characters who could soar like eagles or simply blink in and out - in one room one minute and another the next.

Either way…they would remain side by side and people would ‘marvel’ at their big hearts and undying passion to help improve lives!

Until Next Time, Everybody,
Amy
Excerpt
No background detail is offered for my partner either. Matthew is a warrior trained by the Archangel Gabriel whose job it is to fight for justice—talk about a comic book character—all he’s missing is the cape and tights. He, too, was forgiven for any sins he may have committed during our first turn on the human dance floor. For clarity’s sake—for the ones following our lives—you should know that Matthew is my protector, and I’m his.

Our partnership is still solid, even though it hurts to look at him right now. It took him time to forgive me for what I did to him the first time around. The path I chose may just have been unforgivable...but he’s still here, sitting by my side, waiting for my feelings to change so I’ll jump willingly back into that tumultuous world below and save them from self-destruction.

We can hear the bombs, the wars—everything can be heard up here. Every time there’s an explosion Matthew rises from his chair. He wants nothing more than to return and do the job he was trained for. He still has faith that the ‘good guys’ will win, whereas I believe it would be a miracle if one good soul could still be found down there...a rose growing amongst the weeds.

The Beloved Angel/Warrior Team from Until Next Time Returns!

When Matt and Emily are sent on their second mission they have no idea how truly dark human nature can become… 

Emily never wanted to face humans again. With the heartache that went on down below, she’s still trying to figure out how to save souls that don’t deserve saving. The only one she wants to see again is Jason - the young man she fell in love with who became the soulmate she simply can’t forget…

Matt was trained to protect and defend the souls down below. Longing to feel the heartfelt emotions that come from being human, Matt wants nothing more than to have just one life - one chance - to live and love the girl of his dreams…

The powerful team find themselves in a brand new century, living in the Gilded Age of New York City. Emily takes over the body of Anya, a young Russian girl who arrives on Ellis Island after a hideous tragedy. There she meets up with a strangely familiar young man by the name of Drew Parrish, who helps Anya survive in an unknown world of luxury, snobbery and…obsession.

What Anya’s inner angel doesn’t know is that the soul she loves is also back. This time around Jason goes by the name of Max Carrow. Once a quiet and kind boy, he’s now part of the ‘Four Hundred Club,’ and wants nothing more than to be among the most admired as he climbs the shaky ladder of society’s elite.

As two worlds merge, Emily and Matt struggle under the weight of their “Gilded Wings.” Not only will they have to figure out who they should fight to save, but they must also face a romantic choice that could destroy them both.

Until Next Time: The Angel Chronicles #1
How does a girl choose between the one who steals her heart and the one who owns her soul?
Matt and Emily were created for a specific job. Raised and trained as the ultimate angel/warrior team, they are sent down to save, defend, judge and forgive, depending on the 'life' they've been assigned. What they don't realize is that the power of human emotions, such as love, anger, passion and fear can take over even the best of souls, causing them to make mistakes and follow paths that lead to confusion and heartache.
When the reason for their training is finally revealed, the angel/warrior team find themselves thrust into a world they know nothing about. Matt takes over the life of Daniel, a young man with a great deal of baggage. Emily becomes Liz, a girl living in a remote village who relies on nothing more than her own strength to survive. A violent storm erupts one night, and framed in the window of Liz's establishment is a frightening face. Let in by the soul of a Good Samaritan, the two visitors bring with them a past full of secrets that could literally change an angel's path and a warrior's plans.
From murder to redemption, this angel/warrior team must find a way to keep the faith they have in each other in a world that's ripping them apart.
