Product description

What if angels not only walked among us - but were our celebrities? What if they saved people for money? That's the reality in Angel City, where hot young Jackson Godspeed is the angel everyone's dying to date. Everyone except for Madison Montgomery, that is. She's too busy studying and waitressing to pay attention to the gossip blogs. Then Jackson tumbles into the diner where she works, and they forge an instant, unforgettable connection. But as Maddy is reluctantly drawn into Jackson's glamorous world, Jackson fears he's exposing her to more than just the paparazzi. A serial killer is murdering one angel at a time. Not only could Jackson be next - but it seems the killer's got sights set on Maddy...

To Iona, the first person who reviewed this book.

It's an adult fiction book. That means it's aimed at teenagers. Duh. Don't bash the author and plot for your own stupidity. If Immortal City isn't the type of book you read and like then don't read it. It's Simple.

Every book is beautiful in there own way and your obviously not a passionate reader if you don't realize that.

To whoever is considering reading/buying this book. Go ahead. It's one of my all time favourite novels and I'm ecstatic to read the second one. Its unique in a beautiful way. I adore the story line and I'm in love with the characters. I strongly recommend it.

I ship Jackson and Maddie more than I ship my parents

So this sounds like just a typical teen, supernatural-romance book doesn't it? And trust me the romance side does read just like that. It's annoying and teenage. They fall out over stuff that doesn't really matter, then can't really be together and blah blah blah till the end where it's all wrapped up and a bit too convenient for my liking. Same old same old.

However what I did like about this book was the murders going on at the same time. The book became a lot more interesting from that side. That part read a bit like one of James Patterson's Alex Cross novels or a series of 24. It was much more nitty gritty and substantial.

So I'd give the romance a 1.5 and the crime a 4. If only this writer had tried to go into crime novels instead of young adult romance. I hope someday he will because he's got a real talent for that but I don't think I will continue reading this series. I am just not compelled to find out any more about any of the other characters, except the main detective guy.

I bought this book after reading a couple of good reviews for it, it sounded like my kind of read so I went ahead and got it.

I found the idea of celebrity guardian angels, who charged huge amounts of money for their life saving services, really interesting and different so I guess I was pretty much sold on this book straight away. The storyline was just so intriguing, I wanted to keep reading to find out what certain mysterious events were all about and what they meant.

There were many unexpected surprises throughout the book and although my mind had come up with all sorts of theories I still managed to be shocked when the truth came out!

The feeling of darkness in the book was another thing that kept my interest, the danger that Jacks and Maddy faced was truly heart-pounding. The premonitions panicked and confused me in equal measures and I found myself breathing a sigh of relief when I realised what was really going on.

Tense moments in the school and on the rooftop had me yelling 'who is it' at the book because I really couldn't figure out who the killer could be, when I finally did discover who it was I couldn't believe that I hadn't worked it out.

The ending created many mixed emotions for me - you'll have to read it for yourself to find out why!

This intriguing and exciting book completely captured my imagination and I can't wait to find out what is in store next.
