    Creative Reads Review - Highly Recommended novel you won't be disappointed!!!

    This was an amazing read. There was mystery throughout the entire book that kept you guessing right along with the main character, Skye. I read this in just hours, I couldn't put it down. I love the spin that Jocelyn brought to the characters that are as Skye calls them angels. They aren't from Heaven or Hell, they are from The Order & Rebels, they're 2 sides with power on each going after the same thing...Skye. It all starts on Skye's 17th birthday. She is with her close friends Cassie, Dan, & Ian (who works at the coffee shop that they are having her birthday party at) when she has no choice but to notice two guys that she has never seen before. When she goes back to school that following Monday she is surprised when she see's both of the new guys there. Asher is dark & alluring. He is the one that is breaking the rules & having fun. Devin is calm & collected, he is the one that is for not breaking any of the rules. They both have a tendancy to come & go whenever they want in Skye's life. Skye has went through alot in her childhood with losing both parents & being raised by her mother's best friend. I can relate to that I lost my mom when I was 11. She does well in school & is on the ski team for the school which she has won many medals for. Skye has been noticing some changes in her eyes but hasn't given it to much of a thought, just hoped no one else has noticed it. But everything she thought she knew is slowly unraveling & her life is no longer what she has always that that it was. Not only did I love the chase that your given to find out more information about Asher, Devin & towards the end Skye. But I also loved the fact that Skye didn't just accept what she has been told by either of them. She reacted like anyone would given the information that she has been told. She asked questions, tried to avoid them like that would make everything go back to normal, she freaked...all normal responses. There is still so much that I would love to learn about the Order & the Rebels that I'm sure will be brought to light in the 2nd book that I can't wait to get my hands on. The end left me kinda shocked I must admit but that is part of the betrayal that has been in & out of the entire book we just didn't know which side it would be. I can't wait to see what Skye can harness with all of the information & things that she has now been through & what lies aheaad of her.

    loved it!!

    This book is one of the best books that I have read. I think it is sorta a mix between Unearthly/Hallowed by Cynthia Hand and the Hush,Hush series. So if you liked those books I think you would like this book!

    I loved this book and I definitely liked the chemistry between Asher and Skye. But I thought Ske was a little bit of a overreacter and she kind of got on my nerves. The ending definitely left me hanging it also had me question Asher I mean did he like her or was he just trying to get her on a rebellion side but it seemed like he cared?

    Heartstopping

    This story unfolds beautifully & tragically. I mean seriously, I dont think I would cope any different than Skye does. How much stuff should one person be asked to handle in just 17 years. I love Skye, I believe she is much stronger than she thinks. Its hard to tell who you can & cant trust in the story, the ending will leave you gasping in shock for the next book as a drowning person gasps for that next breathe of air!

    This book had me hooked. As soon as I read the last page, I literally went straight to the shop and bought the second one. Great story. The development of the characters was smooth and realistic. Fantastic book!
    Second one was just as amazing-if not better!
