As soon as it got up to the part of Reese dying I just couldn't take it anymore. From the very beginning I found it difficult to carry on reading; I mean the very first thing for me was the fact emmy 'fell in love' with Marcus within one moment of knowing each other. I mean come on?! She then cried when he didn't pay attention,when he was with his girlfriend, it was just cringey for me. I know this book is for younger readers I suppose, but I still found it incredibly naive and pointless. The character I could not connect to the most was Marcus. It might of been wrong for me to loath him but there it is. He was selfish,cruel and didn't really have a likeable personality and played on a very emotion all girl. He claimed he loved his girlfriend, gave her his heart, spent affection with her. (Bleh) Constantly denied being attracted to emmy. THEN!?! He claimed he loves emmy, will always love her, and no they can't be together because he doesn't want to hurt his girlfriend's feelings but still she has to wait around pining away for him. Urgh then finally emmy user's the light and just as I am starting to fall in love with reese and her, YOU OFF HIM.... I ha plenty of other moans to go by, but this one was the cherry for me. The only likeable relationship I was starting to love. Not to mention marcus's other girl is a complete bizzzzatch. Other people love this book so don't be put of by this at all, this is just my opinion. I will not be reading the series, or finishing this book. Too whiney,needy,school drama for me. Sorry for the review though because I know other people do love these books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loveloveloved it!! 22 July 2012
By Sara
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a book not to be missed out on! Bought it last night and refused to put it down until I had finished it! (Late night but boy was it worth it!) Just when you think you've got the story sussed out, a major twist gets thrown in! I loved Emmy, she's so down to earth and genuinely normal! (Possibly needs to wear something other than her trusty sweats now and again though ;D) In a way you can really relate to all the characters in they way they reacted to certain situations... Even Tony-Tone! The idea of each angel having a Core was fab!! Can't wait for the next one! :D

4.0 out of 5 stars For teens with loose morals 22 Feb. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
*****This review contains spoilers*****
Let me just start by saying, and this may seem weird considering I gave it 4 stars, I wish I hadn't read this book. It has left me feeling extremely uncomfortable. The book is about the age-old war between heaven and hell (although the author has renamed all the main characters and places and ideas).
<spoiler> The heroine, Emmie, is the current clue to finding 'the bridge' which will be the key in enabling the devil to overthrow the human race. Yes, it is that big of a deal.
Six guardians (angels) are sent to destroy secret that locates the bridge, so they are keen on getting to Emmie first; they succeed.
The First Guardian (Marcus) and Emmie fall in love...unfortunately. I say unfortunately because he has already promised himself and married - in angel terms - another guardian. Because he is a man of his word he remains true to his mate and tells Emmie they cannot be together.
Now, this is where I have a real problem because this puts the star-crossed romance into the realms of pure and simple adultery. The circumstances of their quest mean Emmie and Marcus continue to cross each other's paths and, as this is a war of sorts, they are forever consoling/comforting each other. The book is split into three parts; the second part retells the same story from the first part but from Marcus' POV - I don't understand why as all it did was confuse me even more. He loves Ameana (his mate) and we are treated to a lovely romantic interlude in Dubai. Apparently he finds it relatively easy to forget Emmie and get it on with Ameana. But then, at the very end of the second section, he reveals he's been stalking her. WTH? It sure didn't feel like that throughout his POV. I was seriously p'ed off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read! 14 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A must read for any fan of vampire or fantasy books. Unlike many vampire books of today that have become all too predictable, this book remains true to its readers throughout, keeping a nice pace and keeping the reader guessing and intrigued until the final page.
I honestly can't wait to read the next book in the series.
10/10 ...A GREAT READ! I will also definitely be looking for other books by the same author, as should anyone contemplating reading this book.

I was sceptical about this book because it had very much mixed reviews, and a lot centred on the fact that it was a clear insta-love romance. But I went ahead and read it anyway, and boy, they were not wrong!

From the first time Emmy laid eyes on Marcus she was completely infatuated and while this was annoyingly stupid (for obvious reasons), at the start she mocked herself as well so it was actually rather funny. This improved her character so much, especially since my opinions of her changed so frequently. I wasn’t sure whether to be annoyed that she was the pathetically jealous girl, or love the strong and feisty girl who was upfront with what she wanted. Now at the end of the book I am very much on her side, because when you look back she puts up with a lot.

Marcus however, I know exactly how I feel about him, and without spoiling anything I’ll just say that he needs to sort out what he wants or there will be a long line of people behind me who also think he’s messed with too many people and been a jerk one to many times.

The other characters though are all amazing and I love them all individually, because their personalities were obvious but also had clear development. The plot was also well thought out, with many twists and turns focusing on the ideas of good and evil; angels and devils. From the get go this book was packed with action and fighting which never let up.

I’ll be honest, I do think it is because Lola StVil isn’t the best author when it comes to technicality so she makes up for it by cramming idea after idea, whereas other authors would drag it out into more books. It’s a 5 book series though, so if it continues in the same way as The Girl we have a lot more to come which I look forward to seeing play out.
