Books to the Sky Reviews: Struggled to read this.
I hate to say it, but I had a really hard time getting into this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Fallen angels come after their muses and "attempt" them ("attempt" being another word for sexually assault) and then the muse gets pregnant with a nephilim, an evil baby thing that eats people and generally destroys the world.
The vampires for some reason want the main character and muse, Cassandra, to get impregnated with a nephilim because they wanted it's blood so they could become day walkers (I think).
Cassandra has been spending her life learning to defend herself for when her fallen angel comes to "attempt" her. And then Samandiriel (her fallen angel) shows up, and tells her he doesn't want to rape her and they set out to right the world.
It was a ridiculously large plot shoved into a not so large book.
Because there was SO much going on, the characters weren't well developed in my opinion. Cassandra went from one minute being absolutely terrified of Sam and then the next she was all over him.
And in the beginning of the book, it's mentioned that when a fallen angel arrives to earth, they walk the earth and automatically learn every culture and language and everything there is to know about the world.
So how come he didn't understand slang or sex?
As far as the steamy parts of the book, I was so busy trying to wrap my brain around the plot that I wasn't even interested in the sex.
I kept telling myself the book would get better and unfortunately it didn't. It ended rather predictably.
