Warning: this review is going to be totally fangirl-ish.

I've been waiting for this book since forever. I've been dreaming it in my hands and now that I finally got to read, I want to explode. The Collector is SO good. Unique, full of romance, action. It was definitely worth the one year I had to wait for it to come out.

First of all, I adored Victoria's Scott writing. It's so funny. The story flows perfectly, making you hooked immediately. She has a gift of making the story really vivid, like you can actually watch it unravel before your eyes. Victoria Scott is definitely a new voice in YA who needs to be reckoned with.

And here's the good part. D A N T E W A L K E R. Swoon. This guy is the definition of swoon. Gawd, I just love him. He's... UGH! I'm fine, okay, I'm fine *exhales*. Dante Walker is the lead male of the book and we see the story from his point of view. I enjoyed reading the story from his POV. We get to see the real changes in him and also, the truth about who he is. Dante is a collector. He collects souls and brings them to Boss Man aka Lucifer. Yep, he's a demon, a villain. He's also the best collector out of the six of them. And he knows it. He's so totally aware he's flipping awesome, it just may annoy you in the beginning of the book. Let me tell you something. Dante's not your usual cocky, bad boy YA book character. He's the actual villain in the story. That's what's so unique about this story. Watching him change, or better yet, watching Charlie change him throughtout the book is just amazing. Yes, we can all see the good in him, even in the beginning. What we don't know is if the good side of him is enough for him to actually be good instead of a pawn of hell.

Then there's Charlie. Another totally unique character.

I’m pretty sure that anyone who saw me Starbucks this afternoon thought I was insane. I could not stop giggling or grinning while I read this book. The narrator, Dante, is just so snarky in a way I rarely see in male protagonists.

Dante collects Souls for the Big Man down in Hell. He’s good at his job – and wants a promotion to the next level. So when the devil assigns him to Charlie’s soul, he doesn’t hesitate. But how does someone lure a girl who rivals Mother Teresa into hell?

Victoria Scott has developed a fantastic voice for Dante, which really makes the story. He’s a total jerk, there is no denying it. He hates cats and old people. He relishes in his own badness, his suave, confident charm and ability to tell lies. Yet, Charlie gets under his skin.

I loved that Charlie herself wasn’t a typical romantic heroine. She’s a geek. And not the hot-girl-wearing-hipster-glasses type of geek. The cool kids make fun of her, she has no idea how to dress or what to say. As a character she was a great mix of naive innocence, fierce protectiveness and genuine desire to help other people. I loved the contrast between her and Dante and that he fell for her, despite the fact she represents everything good he’s struggled to leave behind.

Unfortunately, the pace did start to drag a little bit towards the middle and I was disappointed that Charlie made so many physical alterations once Satan gave her the choice. Still, this book was a quirky, fun read and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a entertaining YA that will make you laugh (and make others around you look away).

I honestly cannot believe it's taken me this long to read The Collector - I blame a ridiculously long TBR list! By the time I read The Collector it had already built up a huge amount of hype which I was interested to see if it would live up to.

The story is told from Dante's POV as he struggles to collect teenage girl Charlie's soul. The story is hysterical and Dante's POV really worked; his cynical, snarky and cocky attitude was fun to read. I was expecting him to be even snarkier (is that a word?). What I really enjoyed was how Dante isn't your average watered down bad boy, he's actually a real arse and kinda owns it! He's not dwelling on his bad actions because he's enjoying himself too much. It takes a real shift to alter his perception and so it makes sense that Charlie would be the antithesis of him.

I love Charlie in all her bumbling glory. She may not be pretty, she may not have much but she's happy and her goodness shines through. I was expecting her to be dull, but she's far to wacky to ever be dull. It was an interesting contrast to watch her metamorphosis alongside Dante's.

I'm still upset about one event, I wasn't sure it needed to happen. It made me both sad kinda pissed off but I guess there may be more of an explanation in the next book. I enjoyed Dante's story although would have liked a bit more grit.

4 Stars in my Sky!

My fav non-spoilery quotes:

I glance in the mirror. Surprise, surprise—I look finger-lickin’ delicious.

Mr. Awkward rolls up between us, lights a cigarette, makes himself comfortable. It’s the same bastard who shows up after you’ve bumped uglies with a stranger.

"Dante. Oh, Dante. Seal me! Seal me so hard!" He grabs my hips and pumps his toward mine. "Oh, Dante! You're so hot when you seal souls!" I shove my idiot-of-a-best-friend off me and laugh.

How can someone be cruel to this chick? It’s like picking a fight with a chipmunk.
