Sweet baby Jesus, Heaven Leigh Casteel... you cannot catch a break, can you, girl?!? I first read Dark Angel in the early 1990s (when I was a teenager). Loved it then, and hot damn, I loved it again last night when I finished it pretty much in one sitting.

I also find the story a little frustrating in that there are no, for lack of a better term, 'normal' people, every person connected to Heaven's life h ...more
The three stars are literally relitive to the fact that I couldn't decide whether to give this book five or one star; one i got this, I didn't even know about V. C Andrews, had no idea about "Flowers In THe Attic", and got started on book two.
At first I thought the writing was really captivating if the story was a little funny; a weird, stilted, old-fashioned woe-is-me style, about a girl who goes to live with her rich grandparents. I read the first few hundred pages in no ti ...more

Poor Heaven AGAIN, just wanting someone to love her and when she finally gets it, well you know how that ended. I think she's been through so much that she's becoming so cold, I'd hate to find out I'm right in the next book (which i'm ...more
