Character development: ☺️😟😍😉😘
The heroine: Nora Grey (a.k.a. Angel) – she was bombarded by some huge revelations about her father and her family in the last book that come to affect her life in huge ways in this book. However, after being kidnapped and returned months later she has forgotten everything for the last 5 months, including Patch.
The Hero(s): Patch Cipriano (a.k.a. Jev) – He was a fallen angel who became a guardian angel, now he has no choice but to help out the bad guys in order to make sure Nora is safe and stays that way.
The Story: This was an odd one since Nora (and apparently some other people, like her friend Vee) have forgotten much of what happened in the last book. Nora tries to navigate her life after being missing for months and not remembering any of it.
At first I really hated the whole amnesia aspect, since it took the first two books for her to find out all she knows about Patch, fallen Angels, Nephilim and her family and that is taken all away in the beginning and she has to re-learn everything she already knew. But the storyline grew on me.
Hank Miller is a great villain and wouldn’t he have to be since he is the father of Marcie, who is so effortlessly mean. I could never quite figure out his motives when it came to Nora and her Mother, so even though I knew he was the bad guy, I kept wondering if he had any redeemable qualities.
Like the last two books, I loved the fallen Angel vs. Nephilim storyline. Though I can never quite figure out why fallen Angels hate the Nephilim so much since they need the Nephilim in order to take over their bodies for two weeks a year in order to feel. You would think that they could at least empathize with the Nephilim for the fact that they hated being taken over like a puppet. But Patch seems to hate all of them no matter what.
Personally I really liked Nora’s friend Scott who was the one Nephilim who fought against joining Hank’s army of Nephilim. I also liked her friend Vee more in this book, though I still can’t see why Nora is friends with her. Though she is always there to give Nora a ride when she needs one. So there is that. Vee provides some great comic relief and comes through on the audio so well. The voice Caitlin Greer does for Vee matches her personality perfectly.
I have no idea where the next book is headed. Things change a lot in this book and there will probably be a war between the Nephilim and the Angels very soon. I can’t wait to see how things turn out.
