From goodreads.com:Lately there have been a lot of books about angels out, so I thought I would try a couple of them. This was the second one I have picked up and I wasn't sure what to expect. I have read many good and not so good reviews, so I was definitely curious to see what I thought.
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...until Patch comes 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 whom 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 far 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.
First, the plot idea was alright. I didn't find it to be extremely unique or anything amazing. After I first read it I really liked it, but thinking back I see now that it wasn't anything amazing. It wasn't that great to me because the plot was really basic. I have to say that there were one or two things that happened that were a bit surprising, so it wasn't entirely predictable.
I have to say that as characters go, Nora and Patch were pretty interesting. Their relationship was interesting and definitely kept me reading. Nora was your average protagonist and Patch was your average swoon-worthy male lead.
Overall I really enjoyed this book at first, but thinking back it wasn't all that amazing. This review wasn't very long because I just don't know what to say really besides the fact that this book just didn't hit the mark for me.
