Book Review- Fallen Angel

I finished reading Fallen Angel by Heather Terrell for a Teen Book Scene review.

From Goodreads:


Ellie was never particularly good at talking to boys—or anyone other than her best friend and fellow outcast, Ruth. Then she met Michael.

Michael is handsome, charming, sweet. And totally into Ellie. It’s no wonder she is instantly drawn to him. But Michael has a secret. And he knows Ellie is hiding something, too. They’ve both discovered they have powers beyond their imagining. Powers that are otherworldly.

Ellie and Michael are determined to uncover what they are, and how they got this way . . . together. But the truth has repercussions neither could have imagined. Soon they find themselves center stage in an ancient conflict that threatens to destroy everything they love. And it is no longer clear whether Ellie and Michael will choose the same side.

In this electrifying novel, Heather Terrell spins a gripping supernatural tale about true love, destiny, and the battle of good versus evil.

This book had me pretty much right off the bat.  For some reason, the writting was easy to get in to. 

Without saying too much, what Ellie and Michael were came as a surprise.  Although I definitely didn't agree with what they first thought that they were.  That theory didn't make sense to me.  But the story ended up right.

One negative was Ellie and Michael's relationship.  For some reason, it just seemed too involved too fast.  It was all-consuming.  There was a scene where Ellie and Michael went dresss shopping for their first dance.  I don't know of any guys who like to go shopping, and all the girls I knew in high school would have wanted to go with their friends.  It just seemed weird to me.

Anyway, I think the book was set up to be a sequel, and if so, I look forward to reading it!

I gave this book a rating of 3.5/5.
