I liked the background story and the world Cassie Ryan created, but I had a problem with the main characters. Of course the attraction between Jezebeth and Noah was there, but not the romance the author wanted us to see and make us fall for. In my opinion it was just flat, not particularly believable and so not involving. It bothered me because I couldn't find a connection with both Noah and Jez. Instead, I found myself completely lost in Lilith and Uriel's forbidden relationship. That intrigued me a lot and I definitely had a link with those who might be minor characters but who definitely play a huge role in the whole plot.
I'm usually not the greatest Angels' fan, but when I read about Archangels like the ones in here then I have to cheer for them. Handsome, powerful and with apparently no sexual inhibitions at all... They are what really kept me going on with the reading and the curiosity to see what is going to happen among a few of them is telling me that, even if I wasn't particularly enthusiastic with this first instalment, I should give the second book a try.
