"Pretty Little Liars" meets "The Mortal Instruments"
"I want her. I crave her. I love her. And that is the reason we will all die..."
I'm a proud bookworm who is jealous of the heroines she reads about. They're always brimming with courage and going on adventures. The most courageous thing I've done is drink milk two days past it's expiration date. Nothing new or exciting ever happens to me. I play it safe at every turn and live a spectacularly unremarkable life. Until…
I was attacked by a hoard of Demons and rescued by the Japanese twins from my history class. They confess to being part of a six-member team of Angels; sent to earth to find me. Wait, what? It turns out, they are here to get me to reveal a secret; one I don't even realize I'm keeping. If the Demons learn the secret before the Angels, they'll use that knowledge to bring hell on earth.
The twins present me to the team leader-- Marcus Cane. Marcus is stubborn and bossy. He's also ridiculously hot. I forget how to breathe when he's near and feel panic when he's away. But we could never be together. He's the most powerful Angel on earth and I'm, well…me.
Also, he has a girlfriend. She's stunning, intelligent and quick to kill. That should have been enough to make us stay away from each other, it wasn't…
This dark YA paranormal romance is perfect for lovers of Twilight, Fallen, and Immortal Instruments! Please note: This series was perviously published as "Guardians"
Although I did like that book at times it was slightly confusing. Some of the characters were mixed up. Information bounced around so you were left wondering how Emmy got the information. Plus sometimes words would overlap and you couldn't read certain sentences.
Other than that I enjoyed the book and will continued the series so I can see what happens.
We could've been great together
I love the concept of the book. I think it could've been great had it not been for the writting. It felt more like a summary to me than an actual book. I couldn't get a real feel to it. There weren't enough descriptions on what actually mattered and too many on what didn't really matter, who wants to know about runner ball (I think that's what it's called) when we can read about Marcus taking snaps to get close to Emerson. They were the heart of the story but there was no building up to it there was only a climax which as a result didn't have much of an effect.
Reading this was like eating chicken soup with a cold, you know it's really good but you can't really taste it.
I loved the characters in exception of both MCs. I enjoyed reading about Miku and Rio the super twins but my absolute favorite character was Ameana. I loved her. She would've made a better Emerson.
I wish I could say I finished reading this book but I got through two thirds of it before I couldn't take it any longer. It didn't make me feel anything, the drama was in all the wrong places.
Potential and Confusing
I really enjoyed the idea of the story, it would be much more enjoyable if it was written and organized better though. Lots of POV changes that didn’t make sense, dialogue that was hard to understand as there weren’t many indicators on who was speaking. Lots of moments that needed to be extended, but passed by super quick. Lack of character development and description. The explanation for the sports game was lengthier than someone’s death! Has a ton of potential, but needs lots of work.
