Eden didn’t expect Az. 
Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings. 
So long happily-ever-after. 
Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven. 
She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else’s game. Her heart is her own. 
And that’s only the beginning of the end.
My Thoughts:
 I had not heard much about this book before I had decided to order a copy and read it and I am proud to say that I enjoyed this book immensely and was so glad that I read it!

This book is, in a way, about Angels, but do not fret if you were thinking; oh great! Yet another book about angels... this book is completely different to anything I have ever read when it comes to angels and demons of sorts. Clifford did a great job of putting her own twist on the angel fad that has been going on for a while now, the concept was well thought out and I believe, she executed it perfectly.

I have to speak about the cussing in this book as I swear(no pun intended) to give honest reviews; there is quite a lot of swearing in this book, with that being said – the swearing almost became invisible to me as I read on through the book, so if swearing is something that puts you off, please do not be afraid to try this book out as it is really was a great read!

I found that sometimes I was lost in this book, lost in places of the book where time jumped forward but I actually think that it fitted the story and actually made me want to try and read more to figure things out, I was able to figure out certain aspects of the story.

Leah Clifford actually has a brilliant writing style that is flowing and I thought that it fitted the story, the characters, as well as the concept extremely well.
In my eyes this is a great book that I believe everyone should have the chance to read as it really did blow my mind with its uniqueness, despite the theme one would deem, common.
