Review: This book was really good. There were a lot of unexpected plot twists that happened throughout the book. At the same time, it wasn't really an action packed fast paced plot. Patch's distance and Nora's search for the truth about her father's death lead to some interesting surprises. I never felt like the plot was slow to the point of being boring. I did feel like I needed to go back and refresh my memory on some of the angel terminology. I liked this book as much as Hush, Hush. This series is really good and different from most other series., at least that I've read.
I really like Nora as a character. She is a character that readers can relate to. She's smart and down to earth. She's in love with Patch but it didn't come across as being ridiculous. I think she is my favorite character in the series. Of course, Patch isn't far behind. All of the characters in the series have developed really well and I don't think there were any that turned me off.
The end of the book was really good but it ended at a slight cliffhanger. I say slight because although the ending was surprising and sudden it's not all that difficult to imagine what's going to happen next. But who knows I could be surprised again. i reccomend this series to anyone who wants to read a good paranromal romance.

Review: I liked this book. It was a cute and fun way of telling this story. It wasn't a scary story by any means but I'm not really sure that it was supposed to be. I also thought that some of the plot points were really predictable which kind of takes away from it. The story also took a different turn than I expected it to regarding what actually changed about Allison after she sold her soul. I was expecting it be more of a typical ditch your best friend for the popular kids story but it wasn't and I liked that about it. the story was more focused on Jane trying to save Allison than the changes in their relationship which was refreshing because that story line had kind of been overdone.
There weren't very many characters that I really liked in this book. All of the characters in this book were pretty predictable and simple. I didn't really fully connect with any of the characters. I did like Jane though, she was a simple narrarator but I really liked getting to know her throughout the story. I also loved the way that Jane is physically described in the book. It made her a little more memorable.
Anyone who is looking for a simple, fun book to read should pick this up but if your expecting a scary story I suggest you lok somewhere else.
