My review guidelines can be found HERE.
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 life.
- Striking, I would buy this book just for the cover
- The body positioning transmits pain and discomfort
- Trauma is magnified by the red accents on the plucked feathers and broken wings
- The typography nests well with the title and author and the font choice transmits a feeling of strangeness
- Fallen Angels
- Arch Angels
- Guardian Angels
- M/F, YA light
- Intense! This book sucked me in and I finished it in three days (it only took that long because I had to work inbetween pages)
- Way too many parallels to Twilight. BUT I don't read that many YA novels, so it may be that they all take place in biology class with emo girls and creepy boys. (tongue firmly planted in cheek)
- Confusion reigned supreme through out this story. Ms Fitzpatrick does a great job of putting you in Nora's shoes and transmitting her emotions.
- A wild ride. The cliffhanger ending reminds me why I don't like to read YA. Don't click this link unless you want to read the very last page. I warned you.
- Shortie rant/spoiler... The ARC I read ends with "'I got a new job.' Patch locked eyes with me, and I warmed in a lot of places ... 'In security,' he said." whereas the final published version continues on for a paragraph or so to soften the cliffhanger AND just toss in their first kiss together! <-- Not Cool.
- I enjoyed this story, I'm passing it on to my friends, And I am looking forward to the release of Crescendo.
