My Thoughts
Green swirlsI’m angered and upset and broken, but that just proves how good this book is!   There is just enough suspence and rhythm to keep those pages turning and the last 3 or 4 chapters are the best.  I personally thought the first book Fallen was good but this one is exceptional.  I loved it!  I’m still angered about things that went on in the book and I’m heart broken by the ending and I’m upset that I have to wait a freakin’ year to find out what happens!!    It’s all good though!

On a side note about the author and her writing…. I’m loving the way she’s building her characters.  Again, I enjoyed the first book but this one was even better and it’s because we’re learning more and more about each of our beloved characters and we’re also meeting new characters who are just as awesome and/or evil.   Now hurry up and get that 3rd book out!!
