Rated 4 out of 5 by from An excellent start to an excellent series This, the first book in the Threshold series, begins when 14-year-old Prissie Pomeroy sees a boy sitting in one of her grandfather's apple trees who turns out to be a young angel. She discovers that she already knows other angels, who have been living in her town in the guise of humans. As she is drawn into the world of these angels, she learns more than just how to see the invisible. The author is a Christian, and she bases her angel lore on Scriptural references, extended by a wide-ranging and imaginative system of the different orders of angels and their responsibilities. This book will be most thoroughly enjoyed by Christian tween- and teenaged readers, because of the age of the viewpoint character and the Christian perspectives that are inherent in the setting. But anyone who appreciates fantasy, along with engaging and realistic characterisation, and an excellence of writing style not compromised by being directed primarily to a YA audience, will be well advised to give this book a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rare and wonderful One of the best books I've ever read. Very refreshing to have a fifteen year old protagonist who isn't obsessed with boys. I have read this book three times and it's still wonderful every time. Can't wait to see what the next books hold.
