Goodreads description: It has been fifty-five years since the angels of the Apocalyptic War attempted to wipe out humanity. Now a new nation has been built where alchemy is forbidden, and angels fear for their lives as they hide among the mortals.
The city’s leaders share one view on the ancestors of angels: shoot first, no questions.
When her twin brother falls into a strange coma, sixteen-year-old Chela Prizeon vows to discover her role among these exiles, the royal angels known as the Lost Immortals.
Chela’s only hope lies with the mysterious, but infuriating leader of a rebel group. But can she trust this boy, someone who can control her dreams and her heart.
Escape into a world filled with celestial creatures, fascinating villainy, high-stake choices, and forbidden romance.
This book is the absolute perfect fantasy read. It is imaginative, deep, funny, exciting, and provides a dark, dangerous world that all book lovers crave. Plus, the cover is Gorgeous with a capitol G.
The characters are entertaining and I felt strongly about each one (hated, loved, wanted to slap, wanted to kiss etc!) I especially loved Chela and her strong personality and hilarious comments. Who doesn't love a good female lead character?
My favorite thing about this book is the world Leigh created. It is absolutely shattering. It feels bright and dark, magical and gritty. All the different groups (Caduceans, Tainteds, and many more) and characters are genius and fit right into the world.
All though there are so many names, groups, and complex ideas that you might need to go back and refresh your memory sometimes. But, I think that is one thing that makes this such a good story. You can read it again, and again, and again, and still find something new, a little creative detail or intricate plot, each time. I think this is a book you will appreciate more each time you read it. (My third grade teacher used to say thats how you told a great, well though out novel to an okay one.)
All in all, I really recommend you read this when you want to be breath taken by fun characters (Chela and Faris!), an amazing world and plot, and just to enjoy reading a wonderful fantasy.
(I couldn't resist. This book had so many hilarious quotes and views from Chela!)
"She wanted every detail down to the color of underwear I wore that day. All right, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit"
""Hm. Two people, same location, one lives here, the other uninvited. Sounds like a stalker situation to me," I said"
Yeah, this book made me laugh!
