Book blurb:  TORN With the sudden, mysterious death of her father, Samantha discovers her life isn’t what it seems. Not only isn’t she the normal teenage girl she thought she was, Sam must now take her father’s place in the fight between two groups of fallen angels, the Faithful and the Exiled, in a race to save humanity. In addition to dealing with a devastating betrayal—and having feelings for someone she’s forbidden to love—Sam must also fight the growing darkness within her as she struggles to make a choice between fighting alongside the Faithful or succumbing to the temptation of the Exiled. Both sides require sacrifices Sam isn’t sure she can make.
 
**REVIEW**: I was given this book in exchange for my honest review.

The first thing I love about this book is the new cover!  It really draws you in and gets you excited to read the book. 

This is a classic storyline, but one with a fresh new look at being a fallen angel.  The author’s writing style was imaginative and her word building was impressive.  I enjoyed the emotional rollercoaster Sam endured when trying to decide whether she was good or evil.  And the love triangle between Ethan and Lucas was great too.  There are some nice twists and turns along the way and a cliffhanger at the end that will leave you itching for the next book.

The only thing I didn’t like was some confusing chapters at the beginning of the book where it was hard to decipher if it was past/dream or present/reality. 

All in all, this is a wonderful first book to a series.
