I give this book 4 stars!
Description: 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.
First off, I want to give congrats to who ever designed this cover! What a way to draw somebody in. The book itself, I have conflicting emotions about. While I’m sure every girl is at some point drawn to the “bad” boy, I would think someone who actually frightens you might be on a whole other spectrum. But, there’s something about Patch that both invites and frightens. Maybe it’s because you never know which one it’s going to be that draws you into this book. You’re creeped out that he might be the bad guy, but part of you hope he isn’t. But, then I never felt like he was the only “bad” boy in this story.
Two things did bother me about this story. First biology class….now I remember 10 grade biology pretty well. And I don’t remember it ever being as the author describes in the book. Second, I’m not sure I understand what Patch’s intentions really were when he made his presence known to Nora. Were they the same as what he intended in the first place and changed as he got to know her? Did they change when the deal was offered? Or did they change in the split second he made the decision to take the deal? I hope that made sense for those reading. I don’t want to give away too much of the plot! Since the book seems to be wide open for a sequel, I hope my questions will be answered.
