REASONS READ: Sent to me for review
PUBLISHER: Simon & Schuster
GENRE: Paranormal Young Adult
RATING: 4.5/5 Stars
Honestly, I do not usually read books in the paranormal genre, but this book piqued my interest since it was about fallen angels, spooky feelings of being watched when no one was around, a smart young teenage girl, and romance. I had to know how it played out!
I was hooked from page one and the action never stopped!
This is Becca Fitzpatrick's first novel but it won't be her last. Thoroughly-created characters and a well thought-out plot and subplots make this book one to remember. The writing is intelligent for a young adult novel and not dumbed-down. I really liked that the girl protagonist is an intelligent, thoughtful person who can plan more than two seconds into the future. That is always a good call on the part of the author, in my opinion.
I loved how the story unraveled. It was predictable for the most part, but there were enough small surprises thrown in to make the ride very worthwhile and I was still not a hundred percent sure how it would end until the last page. I also liked that it had smokin' scenes with Patch and Nora. It takes the attraction to the edge without going all the way, which in some ways makes it even hotter.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading young adult novels, paranormal fiction, and/or thriller-type stories with intelligent characters.
I wonder if the book will become a series? What do you think? Would that be a good thing?
Don't just take my word for it!
