I wish this was developed into some sort of graphic novel because with respect to the author, the book just doesn't do it complete justice. I think a lot of the scenes in the story would work beautifully if combined with visual artwork that stems from the story's creativity. Additionally, it didn't hurt the fact that little twists and turns were thrown in along with leaving room for several possibilities, depending on which storyline would be next to follow.
If you're up for imagination and looking for something that can be serious and fun simultaneously, this is an awesome read!
A very good read,

The thought of this book excited me and I had much anticipation when I first opened it. I was a bit disappointed with the first two chapters, but after that I loved it. It picked up really quickly, but not to quickly that you're swept away and left confused and annoyed. It needed some work with the punctuation and some sentence structure, but this might have been something that was later fixed.
It did get confusing a little, though, when there were so many characters introduced very close together. My head was spinning with all the new names and positions they were in, but after a while it made sense. I think it should have been more gradual, though.
Another thing that confused me is why the angels have guardians. Angels don't have guardians, angels are guardians.
I really liked how there was romance, but it didn't overpower the book. It wasn't only about the romance, but it was a big factor. It was a really nice balance.
All in all, this was an okay book. It could have been a lot better, but it was still good.
