It's a pity because the story itself had the potential to be great. If you have seen an episode of the TV series The Mortal Instruments: the characters in that show (and the acting) actually seem good compared to the ones in this book. That's the best comparison I can make so you will understand.
Bottom line: this book will irritate and disappoint you if you're over 12 or have an IQ above 80.
A mix of fallen angels, resurrection, reform school, and a teenage girl thinking she is crazy. Plus star-crossed lovers and Luce potentially being able to cause the end of the world.
Past lives didn't phase me, but when it became evident that Daniel was some sort of ethereal being and Cam fighting with him over Luce - that killed the bit of enjoyment I was getting from reading and the rest was a slog.
One thing that kept nagging me throughout reading this book is that I can’t shake the feeling that I’ve read this story before. Don’t get me wrong, I’m positive I haven’t read this particular novel before. But I’m sure I’ve read a very similar take on this angel/human epic romance story before. While I was curious where the story was going, I always knew the direction it was headed. I’m sure this story has been told before, or a very similar one. I just can’t think of which book it was! I’ll have to keep thinking on that.
That would probably be my only complaint. While the story definitely had its slower parts, it was good as a whole. The characters were written well and were easy to connect with. I do plan on reading the sequel. I want to find out more!
