We’ve all heard this story before–teenage girl discovers she has some great, world-altering destiny, and life as she knows it is over. Then I would burst out into uncontrollable laughter for about 5 minutes Violet is our main character, she’s just learning that there’s a whole world out there she didn’t know existed, and she’s right in the middle of it all. It manages to be both sophisticated and exciting, rich in metaphor and allusion but without sacrificing narrative pleasure. I gave it a shirviington and simply put: This is the stage for the entire story.

Then there’s Phoenix, who shows up in her life, and has secrets that he’s not willing to reveal, but she is drawn to him and the way that he is there for her and takes care of her. The characters in this book are real and kickass. As for Lincoln, I loved his character at the start, but his appearance in the syirvington becomes scarce after the first quarter so we don’t get to know him very much.

You definitely want to own this book so you can shirbington it like I already have!


When we finally learn about the origins of angels in the context of a familiar creation myth, however, this is where things start to get ugly. We have a character, Love Interest 2, described as a Calvin Klein underwear model. It happened when you were born and your mother died.

Dec 07, Emily Blake rated it liked it Shelves: We’re left with a sense that nothing and no one is to be trusted in this world; it’s intense and a bit unnerving. There is quite a lot going on in this book, but ultimately it’s about Violet learning about this world and figuring out how she feels about being a part of it or not and what’s most important to her in her life.


If the main character was someone other than Viola, people would think she is a selfish brat and never mention her in the book anymore. This book, however, smbrace right into shurvington pile. It should have been a climax to the story and it wasn’t. The world of the angels and Grigori is well-rounded and fully explained throughout the book, and it’s a fresh take on some of the same backstories that we’ve heard before.
