WHAT SHE THINKS WILL HAPPEN


[WHO WILL SHE CHOOSE?]

Maddie (M): I can't decide.
Jacks (J): Choose me. You know that we can't perish the angels. They're needed here.
Tom (T): REMEMBER WHAT YOUR FATHER FOUGHT FOR!
M: Sorry, Jacks.
J: But...but I love you.
M: I do too. But I can't be blinded by love [Why the cheesiness? Speer is a cheesy author]

Okay I know this is inappropriate because I just finished the first book literally 30 minutes ago, I didn't read the 2nd book yet, and it's like 4:30am, but my literal reaction to reading this summary:

"Tom?? What the heck, who is that? WHO IS THIS TOM YOU SPEAK OF?"

IS JACKSON'S LOVE NOT ENOUGH? -SAD-

The Immortal City series didn't quite go the way I hoped it would. I'm not sure if it was necessarily a bad, ending—it just wasn't the ending that I wanted. Because of that, I'm not left with particularly fond thoughts of the book.

The #1 problem for me was the love triangle. This was introduced in Natural Born Angel and it continues in Battle Angel . I thought this whole triangle was a joke. It felt like a completely unnecessary element of the stor

SPOILERS TO BATTLE ANGEL BELOW


Ugh when I read that she chose Tom. I slammed the book. Which was a shame because since it's a wimpy paperback it didn't take it as well as a hardcover would. How could she choose Tom after all she'd been through with Jackson? The thing between Maddy and Tom was definitely instalove. Remember when I said it was okay that Jackson and Maddy had a kind of instalove because it was believable and they went throug

Hell no. I just can’t read this book. It’s most likely because my taste in books have changed and I’m so against paranormal-romances. There are only the few books that feature angels which I’m able to read, but I won’t take anything that doesn’t look very appeasing to me. Battle Angel was horrible.

I just can’t take books that deal with those cheesy stories of the apocalypse and our “kick-butt” main c

Once again, I am reviewing the final book in a series that I have loved since the minute I read the first chapter 3 years ago. Like I have said before, 2014 is the year for finales on too many of the most incredible book series I have ever read.

Battle Angel is book 3 in Scott Speer's Immortal City series and like the previous 2 books, it does not hold out on action packed fight scenes, suspenseful story-telling, & a love triangle that is worth dying for.

The Dark Angels are coming, but the I

What is the need to shove in an unwanted , utterly dumb love triangle in the story?

Why are all the Y.A writers so obsessed with lame love triangles?

Beats me

Maddy was never my favorite female protagonist ,She always seemed a little too harsh to me .
Jackson,on the other hand had been one of my favorite characters since the beginning of the trilogy.He is battling with depression over loosing his ability to fly and trying to cope up with the way Maddy's fame raising steadily and the lime light had s

This was a action packed conclusion to a great trilogy. The narrative was less from Maddy's POV but I think this worked well as the main element of the book - the war - is very complicated so multiple views are needed to understand its complexity. I absolutely loved the first book and loved Maddy and Jacks together so was disappointed when she chose (view spoiler) The story finishes ...more

I really enjoyed the previous books, and was expecting a fun, happy ending. Basically, the end was stupid.
Rachel
Well. Okay. Um.

Alright. This book is the conclusion to a trilogy. The premise is imaginative and interesting and the first book was quite good, despite the slightly iffy quality of the writing itself. The author is a movie director who had never written a book before. I'm willing to forgive.

The second book went downhill a little. Angel training, interesting, the setup for the final book and the war for the fate of the world. Sure. Fascinating. Great. Though the introduction of a completely unnec

Speer uses every trick that makes books sell..and not in a good way..

What the hell was that? I can honestly say epic fail. Sorry Speer, but you pulled a Veronica Roth, on top of a Stephanie Meyer..what was a decent story and interesting take on what would happen if Angels lived among us became a complete, tragic, frustrating boring mess.

I hated Tom. He was random, and didn't act like a military officer at all. I was shocked he didn't get kicked out of his unit with his behaviour around Maddy. P

On the final battle between Demons and Angels Maddy will have to decide who she wants more and who she will have to leave behind. In the escalating battle between good and evil, mistakes are made, sacrifices will force beloved ones apart and the new order will be born.


Although I loved the previous books, I was way out of my 'reading waters' ith the third one. I didn't expect some scenes to happen and at some point Maddy's actions seemed to be a little planned.

Jackson's actions were odd in contr

Battle Angel is the final book in the Immortal City series and it was amazeballs. The story was so compelling that I gobbled the book in almost one sitting. I love the action, the heartbreak, the angels and most of all the plot.

Just as problems breakout between the humans and the angels, the dark angels (demons) emerge and is threatening humanity but the angels are nowhere to be seen. It's going to be up to half-human/half-angel Maddy to work with the humans to help save mankind, if only the ang

“Just like Jacks, Maddy Montgomery, waitress and high school student, was gone, too. They had both been affected, irreparably wounded, and now they bore the scars of their journeys. Some journeys change us forever…:

The first chapter set the feels, I paid attention to every word, and detail. So many freaking pondering moments about life. Maddy makes a lot of hard decisions based off the choices presented to her.

The battle of Angel City is about to start...and this book picks up right where it's prior one, "Natural Born Angel" left off.

I really enjoyed the first book, and the second one was cool, but I'm just not really into battle books all that much. It was a little gore, but not too descriptive where I was squinting.

I did enjoy the twists and turns of this book. I am not going to say what they were, but there were times I was shocked and surprised. It's a good wrap up to the trilogy.

The love triangle which is annoying in the second book, becomes unbearable in this one. It's a shame, because the main plot is actually better than I thought it would be.
Also, the 'twist' was obvious in my opinion. I'd guessed it long before it was revealed. I understand that's not going to be the case for everyone though.
Isabella (The Feminist Bookworm)
This book made this entire series f------ pointless. It has one of the most (if not THE most) ridiculous endings to a book that I have ever read. I hated the ending to this 10 times more than I hated the ending to Allegiant, and that is saying A LOT. I am going to pretend that Immortal City is a standalone. This was just awful. Like, why? Ugh, just thinking about it makes me so mad.

Wow, the whole series was amazing! There really were many plot-twists, and a great story-line. The ending of this book, however, although it was great and touching, it was SO sad yet so sweet! Though it did bring justice to the series, what a fantastic to finish it! I’d definitely recommend for an audience of about 12+. Once again, awesome series, I wish there were more books!
