Thought I was going to be disappointed with this book as it didn't start of very strongly. It confused me a lot at the beginning and I had to keep checking back making sure I was on the right track. After the first couple of chapters though I ended up really enjoying it. I think I was having a simple day and just about everything confused me. This book is a twist on the usual Lucifer falls from heaven and Michael's the only one who can defeat him, which could have gone very, very badly. This however was a pretty good book. It was well written although it did have too many paragraphs but I like long paragraphs not short ones. This book was filled with emotion, it was like I was on a roller-coaster. This is a book about proper tragic, star-crossed lovers who don't seem like they're ever going to be happy. It does however end on a somewhat happy note although you are left with questions, which hopefully will be answered in the next book. P.S. The thing that really bugs me about most books these days, including this one. Is that you have these really strong female characters who us girls can look up to because they're all kick-ass and strong willed. Then enter man (boy/love at first sight dude)and all of a sudden this once amazing girl goes and makes stupid, idiotic choices and makes things ten times worse. It just annoys me, just thought I'd add this on as its really the only bad thing about this book.
