Overview

****Celestra Series OPTIONED for FILM by 20th CENTURY FOX****

Seventeen year-old, Skyla Messenger finds herself lying on an altar as a sacrifice to the enemy.

Being an angel of the highest Nephilim order hasn’t been easy. Her first love has cast his allegiance to the Countenance, the Sectors and the Fems see her as nothing more than a celestial pawn, and the dead girl she helped bring back to life has blackmailed her into relinquishing her boyfriend.

Skyla is determined to change all that. She’s decided to never trust Logan again, to turn the tables on the Sectors and Fems, and get dirt on Chloe to blackmail her into leaving Gage alone. But, when one obstacle after another gets in her way, Skyla can hardly find the strength to carry on. The only solution seems to be to sacrifice herself to the Sector in her life and put everything in order while losing everything she values most.

    BAD!!! Don't waste your time or $$ it is the same read over and over

    ..I LOVED this series when it first came out. I read book one, two,three,and four as soon as possible. Book 4 left me wanting the series to end but I decided that I would wait for book 5 before giving up on the series. Book five was BAD. Please Tie up all the loose ends and move on to new characters. This book left me burned out on the main characters...all the whining and I can't decide at 16 who I am in love with or who I want to sleep with....PLEASE....NO MORE...no one cares who Skyla ends up with...just end the series in the next book and tie it all up...this is how really good writers lose their audience...

    Pointless

    The story keeps turning in circles and reads like a recycle of the other four books.

    Another great read in the series!

    I have to say that I've read these books back to back and I think I've actually had a few heart attacks along the way but nothing like the end of this one. The next book cannot come out soon enough to put me out of my misery. I need to know what happens next. Excellent.

    Loved all 5 books

    I'm a big fan of the Celestra series and this book did not disapoint. The books are fantastic and the plot twists and turn. I would rate the book (the whole series, really) higher than 5 if I could. I love Addison Moores writing and am impatiently waiting for more!

    shocking!

    I really could never tell where this book was going. I thought the end was maybe the most shocking cliff hanger of them all and this series has a few good ones. Can't wait to see what happens to these characters next.

    Favorite so far!

    I've ripped through this series so fast my head is spinning from all of the twists and turns. I'm new to the series but have loved every single book and I think so far this one is my all time favorite. I can't wait for the next book. Good thing she puts them out so fast. Bring it.

    Gah!! At this point in the series, I feel as if I'm repeating myself. The CELESTRA series is absolute insanity, crazy, unpredictable, funny, scary, suspenseful...You name the emotion, and I'm pretty sure I felt it.

    When book four, WICKED, ended, Skyla had been betrayed. Big time. By someone she loves. The fallout of the supposed betrayal is terrifying and heartbreaking. It definitely alters the course of the story.

    The usual suspects are still around. Marshall... I still don't know what to think about him. One moment he does something that squicks me out. In the next, he acts in a way that makes me, and Skyla, melt. I can't say I love him as a romantic interest, but I certainly get the appeal. Logan and Gage. Gage and Logan. I still don't know which Oliver boy, if either, is right for Skyla. I just have a feeling that things are far from settled when it comes to Skyla's love life.

    I still hate Tad. What a creep. I mean, the jerk is almost comical when he starts in on Skyla or her mom. He makes me twitchy, and stabby. Speaking of stabby, someone has to kill Chloe. Pronto. That is all.

    There are plenty of faces from the past to dot the landscape of VEX. And that's something I find extremely cool about this series. Little things that happen, or people who are mentioned, from the previous books have a way of showing back up. Things are starting to make a bit more sense.

    I know I said the ending to WICKED was shocking. But this one takes the cake. The last few pages of VEX are brutal. I feel awful for the readers who waited months for EXPEL. Definitely buckle up when you dive into VEX.

    Favorite Quote:

    "Gage and I need to harness the power of our love to accomplish all of the good things the future prompts us towards, but not tonight-tonight we spin it into gold." (ebook, 45%)

    "His gentle grazing sends a shiver through my spine, makes me feel alive in the most splendid way. 'I know how it ends,' he puts it out there in a broken whisper. He presses his lips to the back of my hand as a seam of tears lines his lashes. 'Do me a favor. Save something for me in here,' he taps lightly over my chest." (ebook, 73%)

    I think maybe my favorite book. Skyla has some hard choices to make. I don't think I could choose if I were her. All three boys for me, please.

    Excellent! Ms. Moore does it again! I'm so glad the next book is already out because I'd hate to wait but I want it to last so I'll have to pace myself when I read it. This is really one of the only series Iv'e enjoyed in a long while. It reads like a movie.

    A good read. It took me a weekend and I never wanted it to end. The ending was heart attack worthy. Another good one that caught me off guard.

    Love, love, love! If you do not love this book you are insane. This series just keeps getting better. I felt every emotion right along with Skyla and when she went on the ski trip I felt like I went right along with her. I can't understand how she keeps getting in trouble but I guess there would be no book if she didn't. I really wish I could visit this world. I'm already on the next book. Thank God it's out because that last page is a killer.

    I liked the length of this one! Addison Moore kicked up the steam a notch and I didn't mind a bit. It was a perfect escape once again the people of Paragon provided for some serious entertainment. The ending left my jaw unhinged. Please say it ain't so. I'm rooting for my man to come through. Wish I was Skyla!
