  Booklist Review

It all starts when Nora finds herself becoming intrigued by the mysterious senior transfer student, Patch. There's something incredibly alluring about the darkly handsome stranger and something incredibly . . . creepy, too. Is that his voice that starts invading Nora's thoughts? And is he the one who starts stalking our smoky-eyed heroine? And what's up with the inverted V-shaped scar on his back? Why, it almost looks as if wings have been ripped away. Omigod, could he possibly be . . .? First-novelist Fitzpatrick spares no contrivance in her sometimes uneven but always eerie novel of supernatural suspense, which finds its inspiration in the apocryphal Book of Enoch and the legends of the Nephilim, the progeny of fallen angels and human women. Horror and romance fans who are weary of the werewolf (and vampire) next door will welcome this new take on the heart of darkness. And enough loose ends remain at novel's end to suggest a sequel is surely in the works.--Cart, Michael Copyright 2009 Booklist

  Kirkus Review

When Coach changes the biology-class seating chart, e-zine reporter Nora Grey finds herself instantly attracted to yet fearful of her new dark, sexy, bad-boy partner, Patch. She also becomes acquainted with good-looking transfer student Elliot, the key suspect in a murder-ruled-suicide at his former prep school. While putting her journalist skills to the test researching the backgrounds of both mysterious guys, Nora experiences terrifying hallucinations, saves her best friend from an attack meant for her and discovers that Patch is a fallen angel who wants to become humanat any cost. In a thrilling debut with an attention-grabbing cover, this game of revenge among fallen angels with Nora caught in the middle has too many coincidences to move the plot along and an uneven, rushed ending. Twilight readers will either squeal over the forbidden romance between Nora and Patch and the steamy scenes they generate or sigh over another helpless young woman torn between sexuality and fear and threatened and manipulated by males who play with her vulnerability.
