On the night of Skye’s seventeenth birthday, she meets two enigmatic strangers. Complete opposites—like fire and ice—Asher is dark and wild, while Devin is fair and aloof. Their sudden appearance sends Skye’s life into a tailspin. She has no idea what they want, or why they seem to follow her every move—only that their presence coincides with a flurry of strange events. Soon she begins to doubt not just the identity of the two boys, but also the truth about her own past.

In the dead of a bitingly cold Colorado winter, Skye finds herself coming to terms with the impossible secret that threatens to shatter her world. Torn between Asher, who she can’t help falling for, and Devin, who she can’t stay away from, the consequences of Skye’s choice will reach further than the three of them could ever imagine.

Whoa. This was a surprisingly good book. :D I received this ARC from a friend in FL, so thank you so much for sending me this! <3 It was definitely worth it.

I honestly don't know where to begin. Firstly though, the only reason why I gave it four stars is because of the writing. It wasn't really that detailed. It was like it was straight forward and to the point. But you got the picture of what was going on and what things looked like.

And to be honest, I had no clue this was about angels lol. I was reading it thinking it was like...about ghosts or something of the nature. I'm such a ruhtard. I guess it's because of the cover and the title, I think. So, it surprised me when Asher and Devin whipped out their wings on Skye. :)

As to the two main boys. I love Asher. The end. Devin can just...go. Not saying that in a bad way. I DO like him, it's just what happened at the ending is what pushed me towards Asher more..... Dammit, now that I think about it. I love them both, but I love Asher more. There. That's good enough. ;P

And about the ending. HOLY SHIT. That's another ridiculous ending that I can't live with. I know there's going to be another book, but that has to be one of the worse cliffhangers out there. It leaves you hanging completely. Literally.

So this was a very awesome book. I totally adored it! Definitely can't wait for the next one to come out. :D
