A sacred oath. A fallen angel. A forbidden love.
Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them as her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everything she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she shuold 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 she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those who have fallen--and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.
This book's been on my shelf for a couple of months. Don't ask me why, it was probably just all the books I've been bombarded with recently that made me keep putting it off. Plus, I wanted to wait until its sequel came out so I wouldn't have to wait to read it since everyone said they couldn't wait for it. Don't judge me, but I'm completely, head-over-heals in love with Patch. He might've just topped my list of characters that should and need to be real. I mean, I think I was literally drooling. Okay, well, Nora, with her wild curly hair and gray eyes, was a great character. Her reactions were almost exactly the same reactions I would have had. And since the story was from her perspective, it made the book believable and enjoyable. I complain to my friends that a lot of POV character's sound way too calm or way too emotional about their responses to different situations, but Nora was perfect. And Patch; while I refrain from fantasizing about him, I'll just say that he was the perfect bad boy. His bad-ass-ness was perfectly done, and I appreciated how conflicted he made Nora feel. It was impossible to tell when he was sincere or not (at least until the end) and I only fear that he might loose that edge in upcoming books. Vee wasn't my favorite or anything, in fact she lessened my interest a little in the story, but she was well-written and definitely served her purpose. And I absolutely loved the story line. It had just the right amount of suspense and eeriness to make it a page-turner and just enough information to keep me hooked. Fallen angels=love. So what if I'm biased?
5 stars and a recommendation to all those girls who like bad boys (I called dibs... not that I'm the first one to, I'm sure) and readers who like celestial plot lines.
