For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment, but after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.
My actual rating is 3.5 noodles out of 5, but I rounded it off and gave it a 4 of 5 noodles instead, haha!
Honestly, I got bored reading this book. First few chapters of this book is really boring but when the person in ski mask appeared, oh my I can't stop reading. I can't stop reading this because I want to know who's the person behind that ski mask. As the story goes along, more secrets were revealed and more twists and everything. That twists and revelations made this book interesting.
Characters were not that awesome. Nora is weak. Patch isn't great guy. Vee is the only person I like, haha! I like Vee because of her humor. The other characters are weak and evil.
Overall, I enjoy this book because the story is good and original. I'm little disappointed with the characters and with the ending. The ending is not a cliffhanger but it's full of romance, hihihi! Angels plus mystery equals great story. I'm looking forward to read the next book, can't wait to read it. :)

“Before I forget, here's your homework. Where do you want me to put it?"
She pointed at the trash can. "Right there would be fine.”
“What good is a body if I can't have you?”
