When Candra Ember wakes up in hospital after a dangerous encounter with a red-haired woman, she is shocked to discover that seeing a winged boy wasn’t her imagination. Candra is exposed to a world of rivalry and sacrifice she never knew existed, and the aftermath of a war to save humanity thousands of years ago. Soon she finds herself relentlessly stalked by Sebastian, a beautiful and arrogant Watcher Angel and romantically pursued by his darkly seductive rival, Draven. Ultimately, dubious about her own goodness, Candra’s very existence compromises a tentative peace in the city of Acheron.
My Thoughts...
First let me start with the cover, it is gorgeous and absolutely sets the tone for this book and the series, the story inside is just as great as the cover outside.
I've seen this book around on Goodreads and even had it on my wishlist, so I was delighted to be able to be part of the blog tour, for this book and the sequel Iridescent.
From the first page you're drawn into the action as Candra our heroine has an encounter with a red-haired woman which leaves her in hospital after a five story fall, she wakes up with no injuries whatsoever, not even a scratch.
When the boy that she saw watching her while she was loaded into the ambulance and who has also been following her, shows up in her hospital room, she's confused, more so when he appears to know her stepmother Brie, his name is Sebastian and they have a long history together, and the reason for them being reunited after so long is Candra.
But they both have secrets, about their past and Candra, and they're determined that Candra won't find out, but secrets have a way of coming out especially when Candra is determined to find out what they are, and when she does it will change her life forever!
One thing that I especially loved about this story was the chemistry between Candra and Sebastian, they were both in denial for so long about their feelings towards one another and I think that just added to the suspense of the story, and had me rushing through the book with my fingers crossed in hopes that they would end up together.
I love this world that's been created in this story, the characters are great and I also really enjoyed the supporting characters too.
I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading the next book in this briliant series!
I give this 5/5.

Carol Oates has never been one to remain still for long. After her mother’s mad dash to the hospital through the empty city streets of Dublin, Ireland, Carol made her debut into the world in the early hours of Christmas morning. Since then her pace has not slowed down in the least. Carol was introduced to the world of supernatural books when, as a child, her family moved to a coastal suburb of north Dublin known as Clontarf; famous as the birthplace of Bram Stoker, the prolific author responsible for breathing life into the legendary story of “Dracula.” This stirred in Carol an early passion for reading about all things supernatural. When that passion was combined with a deep interest in the history and folklore of Ireland, as well as an active and vivid imagination, Carol Oates, the author, was born. Carol’s love of writing about anything not entirely “human" emerged.

  1. I'm not much into Angel books, but these do look kind of good. And I do LOVE the covers. Maybe I'll TBR them. Thanks for the review! :D
