* I got ARC this for my honest review*
For some reason I thought I was going to read a book about a girl who was part cricket. Well I didn’t get that book. BUT! I got this book which is a a wonderful book that has to do more with angels and Nephilim.
I liked Skyy the self proclaimed freak who is kind of a shut in and not exactly nice to her best friend at times. I can understand why she would what to keep him at arms length though. During the course of the book you do see that she really cares for him. So, Skyy hears voices and paints visions she sees in her head. One day after a few day painting stint she got some unexpected not so nice visitors only to be saved/helped by a pair of nephilim twins. After that day Skyy’s life gets a turn and she finds out what her destiny could be, discovers more information that clouds her past and future and also has to fight and protect those she comes to love.
This book was filled with some great characters some wonderful mysterious aspect( because I was guessing and trying to figure out everything as Skyy was) lots of humor, a little romance and some great action! The ending has a great battle scene, heartbreak, revelation and a twist. I thought it was well written and very engrossing.
I enjoyed this book a lot and would gladly recommend it to those who like books with fallen angels, arch angels, nephilim and everything else that comes with the Angelic Lore. I’m looking forward to the next one in what I hope turns into a great series of books.
Digging the cover too! Simple but represents the book wonderfully.
