Summary: 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.

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.
At Long and Short Reviews, Amy Lignor talks about Until Next Time, "I love to write for teens because that was the absolute hardest part of life. I mean, for me, it was the time period that gave you everything from the biggest romance of your life with your first love, to bullying, to trying to fit in, to dealing with adults, friends, enemies…"
Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers takes a look at Until Next Time, "There’s no way you can make it anywhere near the end and put it down before finishing….it’s just THAT good! When you do finish? All you can do is turn all Oliver Twist and say 'Please sir/ma’am, may I have some MORE?'."
The Reader's Antidote takes a look at Until Next Time, "There were some tender moments between Liz and Jason that I really enjoyed. If you're looking for a more religious-based angel book, you should definitely give this one a try!"
Larkin's Book Bloggers takes a look at Until Next Time, "I also really liked the changes of perspective – it added a lot of insight on events that were happening. I also liked the mystery – such as, why is Liz bruising? Who is Emily, really? How is this going to end?"
At Hollow Readers, Amy Lignor talks about Until Next Time, "Ten years ago angels were not ‘in.’ The message was always the same: angels could never be a large part of the literary world - especially YA fiction - because of the fact that readers wouldn’t accept religion."
Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Reviews and Goodies features a guest post from Amy about Until Next Time, "I need Emily to be able to come across with so many emotions. She needs that anger (without a pout, preferably), and she needs to be able to roll her eyes and fall very hard in love, almost at the same time."
At Book Lovin' Mamas, Amy Lignor talks about Until Next Time, "The Angel Chronicles were well-received by all of you out there, and you have no idea how humbled I am by that - but the greatest part for me is that Emily and Matt have become a part of your lives and imaginations, so that’s something we can all share without ever meeting each other."
At Earth's Book Nook, Amy Lignor talks about Until Next Time, "As all authors will tell you, their stories and characters are taken from real life, and Emily and Matt are a huge extension of that small town I lived in. They come from a place that’s a bit boring too, especially because they’ve lived there all their lives."
At Kindle Fever, Amy Lignor talks about Until Next Time, "All in all I believe it’s time for angels to arrive on the scene. Not only do they have the ingredients necessary for a good paranormal story, but they also provide something that people really want to believe in; a team doing their best to help the rest of us out."
At Book Faery, Emily the angel talks about Until Next Time, "Especially after Jason came into my life. If I had been asked to ‘call’ this one, I would have told you that Matt would be the ‘half’ of us who’d fall in love - he’s got that kind
of big heart. So when it was me instead, I felt like I actually wounded the one
person I figured I could never harm. "
Paper Cuts YA takes a look at Until Next Time, "Emily had a mind of her own in a place where it wasn't wanted. If you were a lady you were seen as a mute person, only there to compliment your husband. Which isn't true, it is wrong."
At Great Minds Think Aloud, Amy Lignor talks about Until Next Time, "My average time is usually four to five months to write a book once it’s ingrained in my head. The second novel of The Angel Chronicles is finished and being polished right now, and the third is forming itself in my skull on a daily basis."

From the TBR Pile takes a look at Until Next Time, "In the beginning of the book, it seems that something has made Emily disillusioned. She is being forced to read back through her 'lives' to try to find out why. Not a bad start to the series."
Unabridged Bookshelf takes a look at Until Next Time, "The range of human emotion explored, and how both Emily and Matt have to deal with them is the real experience. The confusion of love, and the power of anger and how they affect the paths that Liz and Daniel are on. This great read for anyone who loves books about Angels, or general Paranormal Romance fans."
Literary R&R takes a look at Until Next Time, "The author deftly combines and intermingles these religious aspects to create a thought-provoking yet highly engrossing story. This introductory book into a new series is one that has caught my attention and has me eagerly awaiting for the sequel."
At Mr. Book Wonder, Emily fromUntil Next Time says, "Humans are really tough to understand. To have a head AND a soul that can feel so angry, so depressed, so in love—and all in the same week, sometimes—it just makes my soul wonder about it all."
Bookworm Lisa takes a look at Until Next Time, "The antics of the saints were cute, but not very angelic. I like that Amy imagined them with a sense of humor, what would heaven be if you couldn't enjoy yourself and have fun?"
Pretty in Fiction takes a look at Until Next Time, "It was still intriguing enough to have me flipping pages late into the night. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes angels (the angels in this book are kinda awesome, by the way!) and is looking for a quick read."

At I Like These Books, Amy Lignor talks about Until Next Time, "I still don’t sleep much. There are always characters moving around in my mind that I want to tell the world about. But I think Grandpa would love Matt & Emily because they live like he did; they never miss a thing, they take the good with the bad, they fight for the ones they love, and they make sure to not miss a minute of their lives. So I’ve gotten used to yawning because…I’ll sleep when I’m dead."
At Celtic Lady's Reviews, Amy says aboutUntil Next Time, "Part romance, part adventure - Matt & Emily are a great team to watch and get to know. I placed them in Ireland the first time out because of the amazing beauty and history that the Irish hold so dear. I thought that location would be a perfect beginning to a ‘new’ soul that had to experience all the bad and good that came with living."
At Book Dilettante, Amy Lignor talks about Until Next Time, "Emily and Matt will never ‘fall’ into the ‘fallen’ category.

But the one thing they will always have is another chance."

Summary: 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.
