so it's not that this book was good it's more that it was sort of awesomely bad...the thing is it had potential. if it had been edited better and had some other problems fixed it might have been pretty solidly 3 stars for me...it's really more 2 1/2 or 2 3/4 stars but i tend to round up on these things...

so yeah, it's a total twilight ripoff but with some twists...stalker angel instead of stalker vampire...there a bit of a question about if his motives are entirely friendly...the main character is sort of wishy washy but with a few sort of interesting traits...basically the last like 90 pages are pretty decent but oh dear god the previous 300 mooooooooooooved sooooooooooooo sloooooooooowwwwwwwllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyy that i was just sitting there going “throw the poor girl some information!” it took a REALLY long time for everything to come to light and i think that the book would have been better if nora had had a bit more information to work with about patch..i think that the writer wasn’t sure if she wanted the reader to be completely in the dark about what was going on or if she wanted me to know more than nora but just didn’t actually plant the clues for us to discover.

so, i’d totally recommend this book to a diehard twihard but i doubt i’ll ever pick it up and just hand it to someone and be like “here’s a great book!” and i think it says more about my brain having some weird glitch than it does about the fabulousness about the book that i will probably pick up the other books...actually i’ll go with it says that i have a special ability to overlook bad writing/pacing in order to focus on a quasi interesting plotline...although if i’d read this when it first came out i don’t think i’d have been *waiting* and *pining* for the second book, but since it’s already there on the shelf, i’ll check it out.
