When Nora and Patch are forced together as lab partners, Nora would rather fall to her death than put up with his elusive answers to her questions, his teasing, and his infuriatingly handsome face and hypnotizing eyes. It seems Patch was put on earth just to drive her crazy. But before long, Nora's defences start to break down as her curiosity about Patch heats up.Why does he always seem to be wherever she is and know exactly what she's thinking? How does he know what to say to both attract and repulse her? And what is up with those V-shaped scars on his chiseled back?  As their connection grows stronger, Nora's own life becomes increasingly fragile. Nora needs to decide: Is Patch the one who wants to do her harm or the one who will keep her safe? Has she fallen for one of the fallen?


I was looking forward to reading this book and when my best friend told me it was one of the best readings she had done this year, describing it like something I'd surely appreciate a lot, I couldn't resist anymore...

I can't understand how it is possible to criticize this book, it's simply amazing! I loved the plot very much and the scary, mysterious, fascinating atmosphere that makes so difficult to put this book down even for a sec. It all sounds like an horror/thriller movie and let me say that I wouldn't be surprised if there was a real movie about it, in fact I think it would be spectacular to see this story on the big screen!

The characters are all well defined and of course there is someone who I didn't like at all but if in a book there were all great characters wouldn't it be annoying? It doesn't happen often but in this case I have to say I felt particularly close to the main character, Nora. It could be for the anemia? Sure thing, and add some of her personality to the list and you'll have a first idea of who is writing this review... Then there's Patch... Let me get this straight: badass, hot, mysterious with lots of that sarcasm that gives you goose bumps... Probably it's just me, but I found him more like an Adult character than a YA one and that was the real, pleasant surprise! I dare all of you girls not to fall in love with him from the very beginning!

So Becca Fitzpatrick, it seems to me like the two of us will spend a good quality time together, thanks to your books!
