Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
WOW! I was a little nervous when I first heard Kresley Cole was taking a break from her IAD series to write a YA novel. But, I gave it a try and was NOT disappointed. I really LOVED this book. As always, Ms. Cole is amazing at story-telling and world building. She is brilliant at character development and her imagination is genius! Emma Galvin is a PERFECT narrator for YA books (she is one of my favorites).
It’s been a long time since I’ve been considered a “young adult” but I have to say I absolutely love this genre. (Dare I say I have a crush?)
This is definitely a credit worthy read, especially for fans of YA and/or Kresley Cole.
It seems all the rage these days to write a trilogy leaving the reader wanting and waiting for more (those evil genius marketing people) . I usually try to stay clear of reading a series until at least 2 books are complete, however, I gave this one a shot after seeing many positive reviews.
BEWARE: there is a big cliff hanger at the end
If you like a good YA story and don't mind waiting for a complete story resolution I would highly recommend this book. I was immediately drawn in and I enjoyed the high-tech dystopian society that Veronica Rossi has created. This book made me laugh, cry and scared me a little too. It had the right mix of everything.
I love YA books and I never expect any of them to be literary classics. I read them for pure pleasure and the joy of an easy read.
This book really sucked me in from the very beginning. It was action-packed from start to finish. I don't understand some of the other reviews that said it was boring or repetitive at times. Yes, there are some gory parts but nothing that was too over-the-top in my opinion.
Like most books lately the reader was left hanging with a big cliffhanger.
There were a few plot holes, such as the "why the Angel Apocalypse?". However, I didn't think it took away much from the overall story. I do hope some of these unanswered questions will be addressed in future books though. Overall I enjoyed this one and will read the next in the series when it comes out.
