I just loved the book. The writing style, the story, the characters, the pace of the story EVERYTHING. Being a debut novel, the author really did justice to each and every character. The writing was easy and there was no dragging of the story. I loved the character of Erica- Strong and Confident in her own skin unlike other teenagers. The calmness she showed even after knowing who Sasha was, feels so real. Erica and Sasha’s relationship was unique and wild, but difficult. That difficulty was actually what made their relationship more real and believable in my eyes, which I really liked. Overall I loved the book and I’m eagerly waiting for the second part of the ” Angelheart Saga “.
