Unless it had all been in my imagination - the angels and the dark creatures - all thing I had just invented. Maybe I had eaten some hallucinogenic mushrooms. Maybe I wasn't even really at work... p.474I'll be honest. I had my doubts for the first couple of chapters. There was too much exposition and that tires me out. But I began to identify the main character as a Bones type and once the action began, the story really moved and I was hooked. Gabriella wasn't my favorite character and she came off as annoying in the beginning, but so much happens to her that I ended up feeling sorry for her. There were some interesting twists and turns and I appreciated that. It was good to be kept on my toes. There was a lot of action in this book and it never bogged down at those moments. My only complaint is my same old one: show, don't tell. It bugs me when there is too much, I'm so smart, but not enough to back it up. Gabriella proves it later, but at the beginning I was doubting her claims. And it turns out there is a sequel so I'll definitely be looking for that. I need to find out what happens next.
