Before starting my review, I have to say something to Nora, because I've been seething ever since I started the book:

Nora is exhibiting severe signs of "Bella-ism" in this book, and if she doesn't fix them, there could be serious problems. Don't know what "Bella-ism" is? I'll tell you some of the symptoms:

-Unhealthy and obssessive feelings for your significant other
-Unhealthy jealousy
-Extreme bipolarity
-Uncontrolable neediness
-Inability to function without your significant other
-Bad judgement

If you or a friend exhibits these symptoms, this is what you have to do:

Moving on...

Other than Nora's intolarable behavior, I found this book good, although a little bit all over the place. It was kind of abrupt the way it changed from "forbidden love" to whatever the hell happened to Nora's dad.

The last 100 pages or so are full of action and twists that don't seem to drag on at all. I was pretty much absorbed by that point.

I was leaning to rate this book 3 stars, until the cliffhanger in the end made me boost it up to 4.

I liked this book, but finally understand why there's so much hate against the series.

Yikes! What an ending! ( )

I can only imagine how difficult it is to write a sequel as good as the first book in a series. Especially when you need to leave a cliffhanger to attract readers to a third book. Still I was not as enamored with this story as I was with Hush,Hush. As a book seller I often recommend Hush, Hush (and Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater) to teen girls as antidotes to the Twilight series. I'll continue to do so, and hope that the third book in the series has the protaganist returning to being a strong independent woman who just happens to be in love with an angel. ( )

A little of a disappointment after the first. I did find it compelling enough to keep reading, but the girl protag in this book was acting far more immature than she did in the first, and I found it hard to read for that reason. I cringed at so many things she said and did and found it hard to believe that Patch was still interested in her. Sometimes it was painful to read, but sometimes interesting. ( )

Alot going on in this book, had to stop and think a lot! Frustrating ending too! ( )

First words
The fingers of the thorn-apple tree clawed at the windowpane behind Harrison Grey, and he dog-eared his page, no longer able to read through the racket.
The good news: I convinced Lynn not to send Scott over this morning to pick you up. The bad news: Lynn is set on the tour of town. At this point I'm not sure saying no is going to work. Would you mind taking him around after class? Keep it short. Really short. I left his number on the kitchen counter.
P.S. I'll call you tonight from my hotel.
I was a jerk last night. Forgive me?
