Summary:
The beloved Angel/Warrior team face pure evil in their final climactic story!

The first time they were sent down, Irish lives were led. Emily, the angel, ended up embedded in murder and lost in the realm of true love. While Matthew, the warrior, took over a life that left blood on his hands and anger in his soul.

With their second coming, Emily found herself facing an oncoming war that brought her to the shores of America. While Matthew tried desperately to unveil the evil character of a young man who was intent on locking his partner in a ‘gilded’ cage.

Now...Emily and Matthew find that their lives are all their own. Yet, all the memories, hatred, longing and regret have come hand-in-hand with this newfound freedom.

In small town U.S.A., Matthew finds himself loving his new life. From his military school existence to a new, ‘odd’ friend who’s arrived in town, Matthew’s looking forward to graduation and heading off into a brilliant future with Emily by his side.

Emily wants nothing more than to hide. Although doing her best to fit in, she lives a life on the edge, wondering when her past love will reappear to either forgive or seek revenge on the angel who let him down. Battling the shadows that seem to be breaking her soul in two, Emily soon discovers that her small, quiet town has a secret that’s beyond dangerous...

As she and Matthew join forces to help a ‘haunted’ victim, they open the door on a mystery neither of them can believe. A true villain has returned from the past, and not even their heavenly family will be able to save them. This time they’re on their own, as they face a fight that could lead them straight to Hell…and end the angel/warrior team forever.

Amy talks about...strong female heroines

I would love to begin by speaking briefly about strong female heroines. I am a fan of tough, intelligent females in novels, and I believe that comes from two places.

My mother is the strongest, most courageous woman I know. Being a career librarian, she taught my sister and I at a very young age that books were magic and T.V. and video games were not. Although I really didn’t like that idea when I was a teen, I learned pretty early on that she was absolutely right. It’s because of that lady, that I became an avid reader and writer. I also got the love for strong female characters from my daughter. She’s a reader extraordinaire, but when she wasn’t reading, Buffy was playing in the background. Shelby always loved the fact that the girl was able to kick major butt, and that she was the ultimate hero in a world full of men…and vampires, of course.

In a historical series I write called, Tallent & Lowery, the main character is a very tough, very intelligent woman who bas a card catalogue for a brain. She can pull up all sorts of information and head out on adventures and solve puzzles that no one else even understands. She actually brings the mysteries to life. Funny – a bit sarcastic, at times – she’s the ultimate heroine.

So when I began my foray into the young adult world, I decided that I very much wanted to tell a unique angel story (not ‘fallen’ or tormented…at least, not at first). I wanted that female angel to be the toughest of the tough; not by wielding swords, but using her talents to go against the most difficult things you can possibly think of – human emotions. When this angel meets up against love, fear, anger, envy – she’s beyond confused, but she keeps going. Her mind and her heart were bent at times, frayed a bit around the edges, but she never gives up who she is or what she believes in, and I think that’s really the best type of character in the world. Whether the female characters are strong and powerful with their hearts or minds or talents, etc., doesn’t matter. Whatever their ultimate fate is makes the story, and I hope that readers really understand and feel that with Emily in, Until Next Time.
