"Mom always says the angels walk among us. She forgot to tell me that sometimes they're not all fluffy and nice." 

Seventeen-year-old Caleb Wood has seen people he calls the walkers since he was a baby. It didn't take long for him to realize something…no one can see these strangers but him. They never stuck around or tried to touch him. And they never said a word. That was until one day on the first day of class in his senior year when an incredibly gorgeous girl strolls into his life…and things are never the same again. 

Soon Caleb realizes he has stepped into the middle of a growing conflict between two celestial races. And his ability to see the invisible ones, the half-breeds that want to modify the human race, just might be the only hope both he and the mysterious, but infuriating Gia have of making it out alive. 

An Interview with Caleb
What’s your favorite color?
Navy Blue.

What type of vehicle do you drive?
A midnight blue Challenger, of course. **gives me the sexiest dimple grin I think I’ve ever seen**

Describe yourself to me.
**blushes before he speaks** I don’t know. A serious kinda smart a**, I guess. Maybe too sarcastic about some things. People tell me that I wear my heart on my sleeve. That’s a pretty old term. On the physical side, I’m 6’1. I weigh around 180lbs. I have bluish-gray eyes and dark hair.

How would your mate describe you?
Um, I don’t know. Maybe she can tell you later on when you talk to her.

What really moves you, or touches you to the soul?
That’s pretty deep, don’t you think? I’d have to say Edgar Allan Poe poems. And yeah, guys can be into that kind of stuff.

What's the one thing you have always wanted to do but couldn't? What would happen if you did do it?
Well, um, I wanted to try wave boarding. I don’t know. I guess some part of me just doesn’t work in that way. I guess I just don’t do boards well at all.

Describe your ideal mate.
**gets this sexy kind of faraway look on his face after I ask this question** Right. So, she’s smart, tough, she can handle my smart mouth. Sometimes I’m not always the easiest dude to get along with. Sexy. You know. I guess I want the works.

What are you most afraid of?
Losing that person I just described in the last question.

What's the most important thing in your life?
My family.

What do you consider your special talent?
Lacrosse. I know it’s considered a cheesy sport by some people, but I’m good at it. I have another talent too, but that’s not something I can talk about here today.

How did you meet the hero/heroine?
She’s all heroine. In fact, she saves my a** more times than I do hers. Hey! At least I’m man enough to admit it, though. I’ll just say I met her in a classroom and leave it at that.

Was it love at first sight or did it develop slowly?
I didn’t know how to answer that question then. And guess what? I still can’t answer it now.

What did you like/dislike about him/her when you first met?
Well, she kinda disappeared behind this thing she calls the Veil. Man, it freaks me out when she does it. Sometimes she’ll just show up out of the blue too. But now, things are different. Something happened, and she can’t use it that way anymore.

If you were granted three wishes, what would you ask for?
Peace, love, and happiness, my man. What else am I supposed to say? **suddenly I understand why he warned me about him being a sarcastic you-know-what**

Thanks so much for stopping by today Caleb. You seem like a really fun person.

Caleb: And thanks to you for having me on your blog today. I’ll come back and chat anytime you like. You can check out some pictures of my boards here: pinterest

  5. Not long ago I thought angels were all good, but what if they're not? I like the idea that they can have different characters, choose their own path.
