This was an entirely new and different (at least for me) take on the idea of angels and demons. I thought that the author spent quite a bit of time creating the world that these beings existed in, and this meant that she wasn't spending as much time with characters. But I have to say I am already sold on the idea of . I think he's really sweet, and he's going to be a great hero. Ivy on the other hand, it is going to have work pretty hard to win me over in the upcoming books. I am however, excited about the series. i loved the lightheartedness and the funny moments that were thrown in among some the darker ones. I really want to know whats going to happen next, and so I will be coming back for more.
