it was ok
bookshelves: angels
Read in September, 2011

The cover is beautiful, and it's one thing that made me want this book. It also sounded good, but...you know.

What I found though, was that this book was EPICALLY cliche in the world of paranormal young adult books.

List of cliches in this book:
Love triangle
Girl with dead parents
One boy is light and fluffy
the other is dark and "Scary"
Girl that is "More than she seems to be" but doesn't know it.

I mean, there are more, but I really want to talk about something. I pretty much got the feeling that no one had any idea whether she was supposed to trust either boy. To me, they were both kind of stupid and douche-baggy, but....I mean. Even at the end! You just had no idea, but really the only feeling I got was that they both just wanted her to make their side better than the other.
But that's just me....

Overall, I'd say it was pretty average, and I was left with like, One too many questions about what the hell was supposed to be going on.
