This started out very strong and I was hooked from the very first page. I knew this was going to be a 5 star read and I burned through it. I was curious, excited and extremely happy that even though I am very late to the party, I am glad that I picked up this book. But soon all that excitement started going out the window and my curiosity started to turn to extreme eye rolling and my happiness turned towards anger.
Karou was this kick ass female lead who need no man. She has this secret foster family where she feels at ease even though she does run dangerous errands for them. She's flawed and she admits it but she isn't sorry for that and I loved it.
In the first half, we are introduced with her family and how she was raised by them and she runs these errands for them. This mysterious person appears and burns all the access points from our mortal world to Karou's family and she is determine to find access to them and find out what's become of them. I absolutely loved this. The world building was amazing. I couldn't wait to turn the pages.
But then halfway through the book she instantly becomes attracted to this angel and forgets all about her foster family. All she is thinking of the guy's eyes and how he is there to protect her and she's very happy about it even though she is perfectly capable of protecting herself and the guy did try to kill her in their first meeting. I just couldn't from that halfway through. I was constantly rolling my eyes and thinking really, seriously and things like that.
I don't know how I feel about Akiva, the Angel. Yes, he's an Angel and he has orange fire eyes and he's built very strongly but I just couldn't come to either like or dislike him. I have not been able to make up my mind about him. Let's see how he comes across in the next book.
Overall I did enjoy reading this book for the most part and I am still curious to find out more.
