Ms. Fitzpatrick's website: Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described as anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy, Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.Here's a bit from
The further Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim bloodline has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?
This is available everywhere October 19, 2010. I received a copy through Traveling ARC Tours for review.
I devoured this book. I read through it in a day and a half. I loved the fact that it went deeper into Nora's past. There were twists and turns that were surprising. It kept the pages turning right up until the end. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.
I did find the whole thing with Patch and Marcie a little unnerving. I was NOT happy with Patch. But dudes can just be that way sometimes. I kept thinking he was going to have his reasons. And there were instances were Nora was just being unreasonable too. I could feel her trying to do her best and put some distance between them, but also her overwhelming desire to be close to him.
I liked the addition of Rixson and Vee in more detail. Vee and Nora are truly there for one another and I think that's so awesome. I could almost taste the cotton candy at Delphic Beach. Nora is a good girl who pushes on that envelope a bit more in this book. I like seeing her character stretch a bit.
