I have no idea how this book isn't know! It was amazing and I am so happy I found it. While it does have angels, which in my opinion can get a little tedious and sometimes outright annoying. This book was far from any angel book I've ever read. While the writing style is a little underdeveloped in some places the author uses words that most others are to afraid to use and this is what makes her writing stand out.
When I first started the book I was a little nervous, there hadn't been many reviewers and most didn't have much to say. Then the book started and I was blown away at the creativity she used to make a world of watchers, half angels that have a temper and aren't well loved in the angel community, the concept of this book is unique. The characters are likable and HILARIOUS! There were SO many times I laughed out loud from the witty banter between all of them.
Our main character, Clare, is used to life on the run. Unlike most characters these days she well informed on whats going on. Her mother tells her that shes half angel and there is a war going on between two dangerous people and they will recruit her but if she doesn't come willingly they'll kill her. So when she winds up in her moms hometown where her mother left, King's Cross, she's not very happy. Already different from everyone else her appearance wards people away further, as a punk girl most are to afraid to come to close, which is how she likes it. People don't ask questions that way which keeps her safe. Then she meets Daniel, the popular boy that all the girls love and all the boys envy. There first encounter, while hilarious, is not on the best of terms. Daniel is curious about the punk girl that has shown up and beat him where no one else could. This is the making of a witty and hilarious friendship that sparks something deeper.
The secondary characters are great, the action is intense, the romance is heart warming and the plot special. This book has it all and is a must read!

    Twilight

    This book is far more similar to Twilight than anything else. If you're looking for borderline abusive relationships and a plot you can figure out by the third chapter, read this one.
    One star for effort. Another star for a worthwhile reading style.

    Can't wait to read the next one.

    I really liked this book. It was exciting with a little mystery. I know Clare will see her father face to face at some point and can't wait to see how that goes. The character of Clare reminded me of myself, she has had to grow up quick and became very responsible. But I love the way her mother can trust her and know that she doesn't take advantage of the powers she has.
