There’s something achingly familiar abour Daniel Grigori.
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at Sword & Cross boarding school in Savannah. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are screw ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Except Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce-he goes out of his way to make that very clear. But she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, Luce has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret…even if it kills her.
I’ve meant to do this review forever. This book is the perfect mix of romance, suspense, and good vs. evil. If you took any and every supernatural aspect away from this novel, it would be just as amazing. It would be a bit odd, yes, but it’d still be good. You feel for Luce because she has normal teen angst. Then you realize that she’s not really normal, she just kind of gets sucked into this world of angels and devils and all things good and bad. I know everyone who reads this book is going to be, like, absolutely in love with Daniel but I’m gonna be a rebel and say that I like Cam better. I know, he’s bad or whatever but I like his personality more than Daniel’s. Daniel is mysterious at first, and that’s okay, but then he gets all sappy and lovestricken and everything we want a heroine to be. Cam is more straight-forward and honest about himself. And I like “bad boys.” Don’t hate me. Anyway, I recommend this to anyone. I think this and the second book are great, but the series does get awfully slow in the third and fourth books. So, that’s just a warning. Go buy it.
