Summary of Book:
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her, not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment. But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her her life.
I have to admit, last summer, I had checked out this book and then looked at the cover at home and was all "No way am I going to read that thing! Have you seen that cover??". So, I returned it and never thought about it again. BAD, BAD, BAD MISTAKE. The cover may be creepy, but the book was amazing!
I thought the characters' names were really unique. Nora, you don't see many Noras everyday. And Patch, I've NEVER read about a Patch.
It was nice to read a book that was focused on angels, instead of something else. I'm a vamp girl, so I don't read much angel books, let alone fallen angels. And I think I've grown to love angels. Demons I can deal with. But it's the angels I'm looking forward to :D
Vampires and werewolves are cool, don't get me wrong. But, there are thousands of books about them. There might be thousands of angel books too, but I just don't know about them. I'd like to know about them, though. This book was beautifully written and a book I'd read all over again. In fact, I'm looking forward to re-reading it :)
