I had ordered this trilogy quite some time ago and had forgotten that they were actually YA (young adult – or teenage) books. And that’s fine because I have loved such books as the Twilight series and the Hunger Games books, etc., and apparently was intrigued enough to buy these when I did. However, when I first started reading this I found myself a little annoyed to find it written in the viewpoint of a silly teenage girl, and a bit concerned that I would find the story just silly. I mean, angels – really?
But as I began to read it, I found myself sometimes giggling at the teenager’s… well, “teen-ness” and began to realize that I was beginning to really enjoy the story. The writing is good, the pace is tight – and I soon found myself completely gripped; I could not put the book down! Some of it is completely frightening! I quickly finished this book and went on to read the next one. I will be done with that one very soon and will likely finish the last book before the end of the month. A very good escape during this difficult time and I am pleased. 🙂
