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. Not until Patch came 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 who 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 way 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.

I have one word to discribe this book...."Amazing." The characters, plot, even the writing style blew me away! It was very hard for me to put this book down at night (even at 4 in the morning) all I wanted to do was see what was next for Nora and Patch! Let me tell you ladies Patch is one fictional character that I am seriously in love with. He has that bad boy/sarcastic attitude that just makes you wish he was real.

I can not get over how realistic the characters seemed to me, every character in the book reminded me of someone I knew. Becca Fitzpatrick did an amazing job of making the characters feel realistic and not in an overdone way! The plot was also another one of my favorite things mainly because other than the fantasy aspects the scenarios Nora finds herself in felt very life like.

I loved the fantasy aspect of this book, it was refreshing, something new (don't worry guys I am not going to spoil it for you) It just really opened my eyes to something new. I was really disappointed when it ended because I just wanted to keep reading, then someone told me there is going to be a sequel called Crescendo!!!! I really hope that is true mainly because I think all of you out there should read this book and you just like me will be wanting more!

Pre-order this book at:

Happy Reading!
