A BEAUTIFUL DARK was a delightful read! I have to say out of all the previous books I’ve read with Angels that this one is the most unique. Unlike the others this book isn’t just about fallen angels—there’s a twist. It starts off with the protagonist, Skye, turning sixteen. Her friends throw her a surprise party and there she meets two strange boys who are polar opposites of each other. Asher is dark and cynical, Devin is stoic and fair and they are constantly fighting or arguing over something.
Skye can’t seem to shake the two boys from her life. From the day of the party they seem to be everywhere she goes. Instead of this story being about fallen angels this is about two very different types of angels who hate each other. And somehow Skye is connected with whatever is going on with the two sides. When Skye learns the secret of her birth everything she’s ever known feels like a lie.
Skye is an awesome protagonist, and the suspense of the novel had me eagerly flipping through the pages. The only character that kind of confused me at some parts was Asher. Sometimes he’s nice and other times he’s not so nice. The ending was a complete cliffhanger! but I felt like it ended in the right place. There are some things I wished had made more sense by the end but overall it was an enjoyable read. I’ll definitely be looking out for the 2nd book in the series.
