For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life. (Description from Amazon)
This whole review is pretty much going to be me gushing over this book.
Patch is AWESOME. Some times I thought he was SO cool and other times I thought he was SO freaky. I wasn't sure if I could trust him or not until about the very end. Fitzpatrick did very well on this character.
Nora is also very interesting. She isn't one of those one-dimensional heroines that you see a lot. She stand up to Patch and doesn't throw herself at him. Sometimes, though, she seems a little clueless (I think those of you who have read the book will know what parts I mean).
Also the "villains"...wow. I never would have guessed who they were.
The plot is pretty fast moving and definitely kept my attention.
You should go read it.
PS: I LOVE THE COVER.
