Breath of Angel by Karyn Henley

The night Melaia, a sixteen-year-old priestess, witnesses a murder in the temple courtyard, she finds out that the stories of angels and shape-shifters aren’t myths. They’re real. A message found in the murdered man’s hand is only the beginning: “Now is payment due in full”.
Sent to serve a king in a distant land, Melaia thought she could trust Trevin, the young kingsman guarding her, only to discover later that his motive the entire time was to betray her later. Then she discovers a shocking secret about the events surrounding her birth, and it becomes her task to find the three kyparis-wood harps and restore the stairway to heaven, allowing angels stranded in the earthly realm to return. Working against those trying to stop the stairway from being restored, Melaia must fulfill the ancient debt- breath of angel, blood of man- which only she is able to do.
From the description, I wasn’t really sure I would like this book, and it took me the first couple of chapters to really get into it, but then I just couldn’t put it down! I am really glad I chose this book to review, because I very, very much enjoyed it. This is my first Karyn Henley book, and I’m looking forward to reading others by her! I would definitely recommend this book.
I received this book free from the publisher in return for an honest review. My own truthful opinion is expressed here! :-)

First week of February: Skiing!

So it's the 1st week of FEBRUARY already! Winter is, like, half over now! ;-P And we've finally got enough snow to go SKIING! Yay!
On Sunday, our friend, Ashley, and her roommate, Bev, came over after church and lunch, and we had a great time skiing! We went on a several-mile, 1.5 to 2 hour long ski way back in the woods. Some of us got real close with the snow :-)
 This afternoon I went on a short ski. I would've liked to be out there longer, but I needed to get back and finish up getting dinner ready on time. Mackenzie and Mom are away from this afternoon until Wednesday afternoon so Dad and me are doing the cooking for 2 days (but we can both turn out edible stuff!).
 I've been working on knitting a navy-and-flecked teal-striped purse, and I'm almost done with the main part of it (still got the flap to knit then). And that's a lot of what I've been up to lately.
 Have a great day!
