What I liked:
Milayna is likable and relatable. Her plight is gripping and unexpected (especially to her). Other than Chay, I found most of the characters cardboard cut-out and thus wasn't as engaged in the story as I would have been if there was an entire cast who compelled me to read on.
What I questioned:
I thought the kids couldn't be influenced after 18, but every one that turned to the "dark side" was over 18.
Many of the reactions seemed over-the-top, but it was written from the perspective of a teenager girl (go, hormones!)
The relationships (other than the romantic one) could have been developed more so the "shocking" turn at the end would have had more impact.
A vision at the end of the book. Really? Because there's no other way to convince readers that they should read the second book.
You all know how I feel about cliffhangers for the sake of getting people to buy the next book.
This is a great paranormal YA read without language, the violence isn't graphic and there's nothing more sexual than innuendo. If you like the angel/demon battle, you'll want to read this. It offers up a different-than-usual scenario for why it happens on Earth
However, once you get through the first third of the book and all the tween angst has been “dealt with” it picks up speed and gets interesting with character development and plot.
To reiterate: be prepared for eye rolling, sighs of disgust, and silent pep talks to get you though the beginning, but the rest of the book I do consider worth the effort for the unique world the author has created.
