Sera’s father is killed, leaving behind a key. Suddenly her father death is not an accident and angels appear with strange talk of protecting her. When powers start manifesting Sera knows she has to find out the truth, whatever that may be.
This book begins with a Los Angeles Time story that is really creeping. Instantly I am hooked on the plot! I feel so bad for Sera’s family. Not only did they lose their father but he left them in debt. Her brother’s being a jerk and her mother’s losing it. After all that, these creatures are coming out of the shadows and they all seemed to be aimed toward her. Sera is a phenomenal character. She’s eighteen and handles herself realistically. She tries to be brave but that doesn’t always work. I like that so much about her. As this new world begins to take terrifying shape she meets Peter. Peter is cold at first and very secretive. I like how he thaws as the story progresses, even though he still has those moments where I want to slap the back of his head. This story has excellent characters and a unique, if sometimes slow, plot. I’m excited to read the next book!
