A YA That Will Soon Become an ‘Epic’

Amy Lignor Presents Until Next Time to the World!

 

I finished reading Until Next Time earlier this evening and am honestly having a difficult time writing this review. Each time I sit down to write out my thoughts I get all teary eyed again and have to shut everything down and go distract myself for a bit with something around the house. This wasn’t a lighthearted read, but rather a wonderfully bittersweet story that by the end left me reeling emotionally with tears streaming down my face. Lignor created an amazing cast of characters and an interesting world that grabs hold of you and doesn’t let go.

I thoroughly enjoyed both aspects of the story as it bounced back and forth between Matt and Emily’s life in Heaven being guided by the Saints and their first taste of real life on earth as Daniel and Liz.

I loved the soul that was Emily/Liz. She’s a wonderful being to watch in all of her many forms. The present day angel, reliving her past, who has lost her faith in humans. Struggling to deal with her anger and being torn between her soulmate and the love of her life. The angelic soul experiencing life for the first time as Elizabeth. Falling in love and standing up for what she thinks is right and protecting the family she’s created. And finally the young, innocent angel setting out on her first mission. Finding life and emotions are messy and things don’t always turn out as you expect. That your soulmate may not be the one who wins your heart. Finding her way, growing up and committing the ultimate sacrifice to protect those she loves. She’s absolutely captivating and fierce with her emotions.

The men won me over just as easily. Matt/Daniel who will always be there for Emily and no matter what will stand by her side. Best friends who were made for one another. The two of them as children are highly entertaining. Jason who loves her completely and experiences life with her while winning her heart. Both men dealing with such inner turmoil while they try to figure out their lives with Liz/Emily. Even the Saints who were absolutely quirky and managed to add some levity to the story with their antics when not on the job. Play fighting with each other, bickering like siblings and best friends, an obsession with chocolate candy bars and cheating while playing cards. It was an interesting portrayal that kept me smiling and made it hard not to be awfully fond of each of them.

This was an epic story that pulled me in from the very start and kept me captive until the very end. It will keep you thinking and make your heart ache for the men and women you meet. I loved the experience of reading Until Next Time and I’m very much looking forward to the next book in the series and seeing where it takes Matt, Emily and the souls they’ve bonded with.
