I bought this book based on the slew of 5 star reviews left for it. After reading the Etheral, I'm left wondering how that's possible (though I have a theory.)

One review said the book read like fanfiction and, having written and edited in that world for ten years, I'd like to qualify it with "it reads like *bad* fanfiction." I've read some incredible fanworks over the years and this doesn't come close to that level of quality.

There's no cohesion in the plot, no follow through on plot devices use (Skyla finds out her mother's an angel, yet there's no confrontation?), other story elements are so contrived as to be almost comical - insta-lust to Logan, falling literally into Chloe's life - her room, her boyfriend, her cheerleading squad - and no one finds this strange. Skyla routinely "forgets" that Logan can read her thoughts? Doubtful, since she's had that ability her whole life.

The names. Skyla. Darla.

The story jumps around, the pacing is shoddy and there's no real sense of beginning, middle, and end.

Skyla herself is vapid and shallow, almost totally unlikeable. Logan is a complete dog - making out in front of Skyla to "get Chloe's diary" when, I'm assuming, Gage could teleport into Michelle's room if he wanted to and get it for Logan?

To this point, Gage is the only redeeming character and probably the only reason I've given the book 2 stars and not one.

We won't even get into the spelling and grammar errors throughout. That would take several more pages.

I'm intrigued enough to see if she grows as an author through the next books (at .$99 I'll take the risk.)

I am glad I only paid 99 cents for this book because it's barely worth that. I'm the type of person to dig into a book and no stop reading until it's done. I read 400 page books in a matter of hours, but this book took me four days to get through. The characters are really 2-dimensional and undeveloped. The main character is unlikeable and boring. The book has extremely short, choppy chapters which remind me of really bad fanfiction. The plot jumps around so quickly I often lost focus and had to backtrack and figure out what was going on.

*** spoilers below ***

The book starts off with the main character, Skyla, moving to Paragon Island. Skyla describes herself as perfect with wavy blonde (NEVER FRIZZY!!) hair and perfect crystal blue eyes. She moves into a house where a girl who was murdered lived. The dead girl's best friend immediately runs over and becomes best friends with Skyla for some unknown reason. She also gets Skyla an instant spot on the cheerleading squad and instant invites to all parties (and there are a lot.. this girl parties like a college kid). The new best friend also immediately starts dating Skyla's nose-picking, flatulent, disgusting brother as well. Right away, Skyla meets the dead girl's boyfriend, Logan, and his cousin Gage. The two boys are described as the most perfect good looking boys in the world and both immediately fall in love with her and start fighting over her. There is absolutely no development of a relationship, Skyla and Logan just immediately are in love and start making out all the time. This author definitely wastes no time on buildup for that first kiss, they're making out on a pool table within pages of meeting.

This is another Kindle freebie that I've hoarded away and finally got around to reading. I initially started it because of a few fellow bloggers saying that they really enjoyed it, and my hopes were high. So I feel back into the 'angel pattern' that I have and I've been hoping to break. I see great reviews, those I know enjoy it, I start reading...and disappointment. I'm starting to think I'm too picky when it comes to these things, I'm not entirely sure why me and angel books are so incompatible. I love angels and see a ton of potential both in the creature and in this story, but it seems to never come to fruition.

I struggled to come up with a rating on this one, so it truly floats around a 1.5 or 2. The plot is fairly good and has a nice unique feel to it, however I'm not sure the actual execution did it justice. I like the idea of having Nephilim descendents running about, and I love the fact that they have a kind of cast structure based on ability. There are the Countenance, Noster, Levatio, Deorsum, and Celestra. They each have their defining characteristics which are pretty numerous and they kind of overlap on one another. The most ineresting of the powers are time travel and 'the knowing' which is just future sight. I had no clue that time travel was going to be involved in this and while it was kind of cool, the main character really brought it down for me. Not very much is explained in this as a whole, you do find out about the angels and you find out that they have enemies...but you never find out what exactly is going on and why.

The characters in this were really frustrating and to be frank, idiots. Skyla is the main character and while she does have some wit when it comes to verbal exchanges she really seems to have trouble with really obvious things.

Logan or Gage?
J, I agree with the setup of the love triangle. I found it believable that Logan would want to protect her and have Gage play the part of BF so she won't get hurt. I find myself leaning towards Gage. I'm not sure I would call him an underdog. Skyla has to be blind not to see him for who he is.... Read More
