Her guardian angel was pushed.
Keiron was made to be a hero. Born high above in a place of war and deception, he is Heartborn, a being of purity and goodness in a world where violence and deceit are just around every corner.
His disappearance will spark a war he cannot see, for Keiron has bent time to save a girl he has never met.
Livvy Foster is seventeen, brave, and broken. With half a heart, she bears the scars of a lifetime of pain and little hope of survival.
Until Keiron arrives.
In the middle of a brewing war and Livvy's failing heart, Keiron will risk everything for Livvy, because a Heartborn's life can only end in one way: Sacrifice.
Fall with Livvy and Keiron as they seek the truth about her heart, and his power, and what it means to love someone who will give their very life to save you.

A “heartborn” is a being of purity and goodness; one who will sacrifice all for those he loves. Keiron is a heartborn, an angel who makes the decision to help Livvy and his family win a war. Livvy has half a heart which has been broken numerous times, suffered through unbearable pain and has little hope for a pain-free life. Then she meets Keiron. Livvy’s life is about to change!
Meanwhile, Keiron’s family finds themselves involved in a war with corrupted council members taking advantage of the mysterious disappearance of Keiron. The House of Whintook begins the fight for their life.
I enjoyed Heartborn thoroughly. It was fast paced and held my attention to the end. We heard the story from two points of view; and learned how vital Livvy will become to Keiron’s family and her own. There are secrets that Terry Maggert reveals slowly but powerfully. You know there is more to the story than you are being told at the moment and you have to keep listening to learn it. Maggert plays with the listener’s emotions like a fine violinist.
The narrator, Julia Whelan is excellent. I have listened to her before and enjoy her voice. She performs the story passionately and while not a strong “male voice”, she does a clear job of distinguishing characters well enough.
This was a good book, one I recommend to those who like a little innocent romance, intrigue, and action.
