This is a pretty decent book, it’s not god-awful but it isn’t exactly brilliant either. It’s just good and decent and you can pretty much read it just fine*.
Our main character is Emmy, who is a clue for a group of angels and demons who are looking for a clue to find something to stop the world (or make the world) end and burn.
Emmy was just a normal girl, going to high school and is rather close to her mum. Upon saying that, though the book says she is close to her mum, aside from bringing the past up, there isn’t that much interaction between mother and daughter; which I kinda think is a shame, since her mum does seem rather awesome from what we are told. However Emmy herself? She irritates me. She falls for Marcus, even though he already has an angelic girlfriend (who is also his second in command) she still makes it obvious that she has a thing for him, upsetting his girlfriend and generally caused tension around in the angel camp.
The love triangle just doesn’t work out very well in this book, since it’s pretty much all this first book is about rather than the story or about any of the other characters who are in the book.
Miku and Rio are two angel’s who are pretty interesting, they are twin’s and they both have gifts, Rio can see people’s emotions, like a mood-ring, only more accurate, while Miku has a voice that can either kill or seriously hurt any who hear her sing. They both could have been brought forth in this book a little bit more than they were.
Marcus just irritated me, he just acted like a silly teenager and was rather bratty and immature, as the leader he should have taken responsibility of the things that had caused tension in the angel camp and smoothed things over with his girlfriend.
Although his girlfriend isn’t exactly a pure angel either since she did threaten Emmy as well.
I’d have to say that although the love triangle got on my nerves the side characters like Rio, Miku, Jay and Reese are pretty interesting, even the Sage is an interesting character. My only complaint is that Emmy just seems a bit… flat, she doesn’t stand out apart from her purple eyes, nothing makes me really care about her at all.
There is a second book, it could be an interesting read and chances are high that it will be better than the first book.
* That is a lie.
