This isn't the worst book I've read but it is very bad.

There are parts that are quite good, but sadly they're mostly when the protagonist is absent and like much better books the protagonist is around a lot. The basic structure and story could be OK but the protagonist is meant to be a goth-fallen angel and is, instead, the archetypal emo. There is nothing cute or fun in there - he's a whining, self-absorbed idiot. Someone needs to take him, ideally by the throat, and shake him violently. Sadly it doesn't happen.

And then there's the sex. Straight, gay, you name it... It's a lot longer winded than "they shagged" but actually less emotionally and erotically charged than that would be - simply because the writing is structured to make it almost as unerotic as it's possible to imagine.

I don't know what was going on in the author's life when she wrote this, but she has written other books that do all of this so much better. This is really disappointing and probably best avoided. Unless you're an emo. ( )

The Grigori Trilogy #2 The Grigori are an ancient race. Powerful people, possessing abilities and senses humans do not have. They live among us, their presence clear to those who have eyes to see... High Crag on Cornwall's desolate storm-lashed coast is a terrible place with dark secrets. Here the Grigori are preparing for world dominance as the new millennium approaches. Deep beneath the cliffs an ancient power sleeps that holds the secrets of the past, waiting to be rediscovered. Into this mix comes Peverel Othman, the fallen angel Shemyaza, escaping the destruction that he cause in Little Moor. With him are Daniel, now a seer, and the twins Owen and Lily Winter. Has Peverel arrived to help his fellow Grigori, or to side with his followers on the side of humans, or has he got his own plans to use them both to once again become Shemyaza, an avenging angel of awesome power?
