Summary (from Goodreads)
Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment. But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. For she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.

Okay...I seriously adored this book. I don't usually get infatuated with characters, and yes, I know they're fictional, but Patch was a serious hottie. Everything about him screamed "total badass". Definitely my type of guy. Anyways........the ending of this book was a real shocker. There was a great build-up to the action, and I had no idea it was coming, which I love in a book. There was one thing I didn't like, though: Nora's friend Vee. There was just something about her that didn't click with me. She wasn't a very rounded character, and every time she spoke I found myself cringing. She wasn't just your typical ditzy chick, she was obnoxious. That being said, this was a great book and I would totally recommend it! I'm a little late on this series (by like three years), but I can't wait to read the next one!
