This book was a tough one for me. On the one hand, I didn't like it that angels were evil and the cause of so much pain and suffering--chronic pain, mental illness, cancer... On the other hand, I found myself fully captured by the story, compelled to keep reading. And yes, I will read the sequel.
The characters of Alex and Willow are both strong and independent, and the development of their relationship is enthralling. The writing and storyline are very well done, sucking you in and holding you to the end. In spite of my early doubts, I ended up really enjoying this book. It's a great YA read!
