#4. Nora may have swooned for Patch at times, but she never got so wrapped up in him that she lost her identity over him—got to love a strong heroine!
#3. The clever plot with its seductive twists and turns make the pages fly by so fast, you almost want to force yourself to read slower, just to make the fun last a little longer. Almost.
#2. The tension and the pacing of this book keep your mind working in overdrive (and up way too late when you have to work the next day!).
#1. Patch—dark, sexy and dangerous fallen angel. The kind of unpredictable bad boy we’ve all secretly dreamed about. Just one glance from him and your stomach will be doing flip flops.
or so deadly.
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.
