Well it surprised me. I found myself flying through the pages and enjoying the story much more than I thought I would. Many people complain about the jumping back and forth between the present and the past, but I had didn't have that problem. The time jumps are clearly stated and happen only with a new chapter, it's not like it just changes all of a sudden. I would have been disappointed if I didn't get the glimpses from Elise's past. The past explains the present, both are important and in my opinion the jumps are well done.
The romance that simmers in the air is fun and complicated, which is exactly what it should be in a story such as this. I love how the romance is down played and the action never seems to stop. The past gives you just enough information to enjoy the present, but leaves you guessing and interested in what will happen next.
I will be continuing this series, and hope to dabble with some of the other stories that this author has written.
Book 2: I'm not sure what makes me unable to decide whether or not I like these books. I like the theme, the angels which are not exactly the benevolent guardians we think, the demons who enslave angels. I think my problem is with the main character. She is simply irritating. She is supposed to be tough and the best in her field, but she just makes stupid and illogical decisions, and almost dies in every fight. And, she is a bitch (not in that charming, funny way say, Dr. House is, she's just a mean bitch), and she has this tomboy image which is thoroughly ruined when she acts like a jealous idiot. I simply cannot relate to her.
Still, I can't give them up. There's just something that makes me read on, and not want to make me put down my Kindle. It's a strange love/hate-relationship between Elise and me.
Book 3: Elise get more irritating by the page. I had no connection to her whatsoever. In addition, this book was... well... I don't really know. I didn't really see the point of it. It didn't seem like a whole book, it seemed like the beginning (a very slow one, but still) of a book.
All the characters were frustrating, none of them seemed plausible.
It's really quite difficult to write a review of this book, it just seemed to lack a bit of everything that makes a book good. It was simply "meh".
And the grammatical errors (in all three books) didn't help one bit.
