My thoughts:  

This was a physical copy that I borrowed from my local library. 
Having read Fallen Angel by Heather Terrell, I wanted to carry on with the story, so I was looking forwards to it.
However, I was really disappointed. 
I found the beginning really slow. I just couldn't get into it whatsoever, and nothing was really happening. 
I also didn't like Michael's character very much in this. I found him to be really annoying. Even Ellie didn't come across as strong. 
However, the writing style is easy enough to understand, and the chapters are nice and short. 
It's also written in second person. 
I liked how they referred to Michael Angelo's painting in the story.
There was a certain mystery to the story with wondering what was going on with Michael, but at the same time I felt there was a lot of waiting around. 
It wasn't until the end when there was a lot more action. 
I like the front cover though. The colours mingle together, and the font is very angelic. 
The ending to the book was sweet as life is good. 
Overall it wasn't a good sequel.
If the characters and the storyline was stronger, then maybe I would have liked it more. 
In the end I gave this book three out of five stars as it was an OK read. 

Happy reading =)
