Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city filled with them.
He's days away from becoming a full Guardian, and people around the world are already competing for the chance to be watched over by him. Everyone's obsessed with the Angels and the lucky people they protect - everyone except for Madison Montgomery.
Maddy's the one girl in Angel City who doesn't breathlessly follow the Angels on TV and gossip blogs. When she meets Jackson, she doesn't recognize him. But Jackson is instantly captivated by her, and against all odds the two fall in love.
Maddy is swiftly caught up in Jackson's scene, a world of glamour, paparazzi - and murder. A serial killer is on the loose, leaving dead Angels' wings for the police to find on the Walk of Fame. Even the Guardians are powerless to protect themselves in the face of this threat & and this time it's up to Maddy to save Jackson.
I enjoyed this book so much! It was really unique-I mean, angels that are all about fame, and saving people for a price-and the writing was great! Plus, I wanted to know more about these characters, they were awesome to read about!
Just the idea that angels are celebrities in L.A.-Angel City-is a little insane. After all, that's pretty much the opposite idea of them that you get from Christianity. But I guess being in this world, that was the easiest way to adapt!
I really enjoyed the POV scenes from the cop who was investigating the murders, because he had a secret-which we were eventually told-and that he had insights into the killings, which were pretty interesting! And then he gets pulled in by Maddy and Jackson's attempt to leave the city!
That it was demons committing the crimes? With the help of a few humans? Yeah, not a nice idea, since demons are pretty much the quintessential bad guys. But then with the twist at the end-that Maddy's half angel? Yeah, want book #2 now!
Really fantastic book, great banter, really enjoyed it, and I just really want more now!
