Ebony has always known that she is different. Her violet eyes mark her out, and her protective parents have kept her in a gorgeous valley, home-schooled, safe from everything—almost as if she’s being hidden. But she’s changing: glowing, getting more and more beautiful, and stronger than anyone knows. Ebony can’t stay hidden for ever, and when she meets complicated, intense Jordan, something explodes inside her—something that can be seen from the heavens; something that changes everything. Ebony is a stolen angel, concealed on Earth. Now the heavens have found her, they want her back.
I haven’t read a lot of books featuring insta-love but this is one of the few that I will be adding to my insta-love shelf. I’ve now found that insta-love bugs me and I won’t be reading another book with insta-love featured in it for a long time.
I loved the concept of this novel and, although I’ve read quite a few books with a similar plotline, this one had many unique aspects.
I found the characterisation very poor and wanted to scream at Ebony and Jordan on numerous occasions. Jordan irritated me more and more as the book progressed. This was one of the reasons why I put the book down. Whenever I pick up a book I want to be able to relate to the characters and feel something towards them, whether it be sympathy or hate for an antagonist. I didn’t, however, feel any of those things for either Ebony or Jordan.
I don’t think I’ll be reading anything else written by this author because I think I’m slightly too old to be reading this thing. It felt forced to me and I wasn’t comfortable with reading it. I do understand, however, why it may appeal to other people.
