Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  TKono
Leah Clifford's "A Touch Mortal" is all about a human that sparks the attention of an angel. The angel falls in love with her and the drama ensues. Suicide and death inch their way into the story, too. There are categories of angels and special rules for what happens when angels and humans interact. There are also various sides that humans and angels take. Love triangles form and new characters are shoved into the plot in an attempt to somehow make the story more interesting. There is some mystery as readers are trying to figure out all the different types of angels and who is against whom.

Full of cursing, this book is not for young readers. While the romance is not overtly graphic, it is still there. Most shocking is the notion that people fall "in love" very shortly after meeting someone and spending time with them. Also, cohabitation being approved of will raise some eyebrows. Clifford is subtle in how she uses characters to voice opinions about spirituality. However, she does not use angels in the sense that they are used in the Bible (even though she quotes a verse about immoral women at the beginning of the book). Some dialog hints at the fact that it is okay for angels (and humans?) to be gay, angels can be "good" while still lusting after humans, that there is no God, there is no Heaven, and that there is no Hell. For those that like lewd fantasy novels, have your fun, but for everyone else, please know that the ideas present in this book are not at all Biblical in the least.

There is a plethora of swearing and inappropriate romance.
