This book was on sale in so I decided, why not buy it. My best friend enjoyed it, so I figured I had a chance of enjoying it. Boy did I enjoy it. Anything that deals with angels and the supernatural is great in my book. Add a hint of romance and it is excellent. This book was spellbinding and suspenseful; I couldn't put it down. I read the entire book in one sitting. Penryn is a truly strong and loyal character, something I could never be. Raffe... god I love that guy. He is sarcastic, sassy, intelligent, and hot, absolutely everything I look for an a male character. Also the fact that he is an agnostic angel just tops the whole cake. The conversations between them were great and I enjoyed their chemistry. Now the actual world is a little mysterious with the whole angel fall thing. No one is really sure why the angels are there and I can't wait to learn more about the situation. Onto Paige and the Mom. I guess because I'm not close to my family, I didn't really understand how Penryn could put everything on the line for them. After what happened to Paige, I definitely wouldn't have kept her around. The mom... the mom is an interesting character. I would like to learn more about her and the role she plays in everything because she seems like she is going to be very important. Now the angels... I really don't like the angels, except Raffe, especially after what they did to Raffe. I also really hate Boden. I can't believe how sexist and disgusting he is and the way the camp allows him to behave like that. It is truly revolting. Obi... I honestly don't know if I like him yet as a character, and the twins, well they are cunning and amusing bastards.
The end scenes between Raffe and Penryn are my everything. The way he called her beautiful, and then they kissed, and when she was paralyzed the way he got angry and took care of her... ajdfjafi I'm sorry but I just need them to be together.
I also totally called Raffe being Rapheal. I knew he had to be an archangel. I guess I've watched too much "Supernatural" because I knew the angels and how they would act before they even appeared.
I hope the angels all die after taking Raffe's wings and giving him demonic ones. Hopefully he gets his original ones back.
