A sacred oath, a fallen angel, a forbidden love...
Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora 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 seems 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 she 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 Nora her life.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Twilight fans will swoon over Becca Fitzpatrick’s assured debut, a tale of fallen angels and starcrossed romance set in a Maine high school. When protagonist Nora Grey is drawn to bad boy Patch Cipriano, she’s thrust into the middle of his dark, supernatural past. Fitzpatrick masterfully ratchets up the tension, teasing out themes of obsession and revenge in a suspenseful thriller that’ll keep you turning pages well past bedtime.
Fitzpatrick debuts with a gripping chiller where humans become pawns in the hands of fallen angels. Nora Grey is assigned a new partner in her sophomore biology class. Her instincts tell her Patch is trouble, and she doesn't like the way he is already inside her head ( Part of me wanted to run away from him screaming, Fire! A more reckless part was tempted to see how close I could get without... combusting ). Soon she is questioning her sanity she is attacked by a masked figure that smashes her car window, but later the glass is intact. And the same figure ransacks her bedroom, but everything is in place when the police arrive. The violence and danger escalate, and Nora learns that Patch is actually a fallen angel seeking to become human. Fitzpatrick regularly tweaks the tension, resulting in a fast-paced, exhilarating read. Nora's tempestuous relationship with prototypical bad boy Patch is genuinely, even unsettlingly, seductive fans of paranormal romance should be rapt. Ages 14 up.

Talk about BRILLIANT!!
I'm 14 and I absolutely adore this book - I actually have 2 copies of it! I made a few friends read some passages from it and now they're obsessed as well! It's more than the typical 'secret angel' plot, with some rather amusing chapters that lighten a darker side to the book. Would definitely recommend to anyone who's into dark romance stories!
Happy reading :) x
