Thank you. Your review has been submitted and will appear here shortly. I don't mind some mystery in a book but I was lost the entire time I was reading, and still don't have a clue about Siders and Touch or what their purposes are. And I really can't get over how much Eden annoyed me. Don't let my review keep you from checking this out though, there's an intriguing idea here, you just might need more patience than I did.
After reading fantastic angel books like Unearthly, Angelfire, and then Hallowed, I was gearing to devour this as well.
Unfortunately within the first few chapters I realized I'd have some trouble getting through this book, and this feeling lasted almost the entire time I was reading. Eden meets Az by chance, and it's only the connection that forms between them that saves the depressed girl from killing herself that night. I can only describe their relationship as a 'whirlwind romance' because they're seemingly in love the next chapter.
And by next chapter I mean we move like a month and a half into the future with a turn of the page. One page they're on their first date eating lobster, the next they're making out on the beach head over heels for one another.

But things aren't all rosy for the happy couple. Az's best friend Gabe informs him that Eden is a Sider, and there's nothing they can do to change that. Her path will always end in darkness. Then there's the evil forces who will do whatever they can do hurt Az and that means going after Eden.
As long as she's alive, she's in danger.

So, to cut to the chase, Eden ends up killing herself, becomes a Sider, and the rest of the story begins. If the first part of the book left me lost by zooming through Az and Eden's relationship, the second part had me completely confused, not knowing what was happening at all.
Eden wakes up, has no idea if she's dreaming, doesn't know where she is, and meets Kristen, an unstable character who immediately tells her she's a Sider and she's got to release Touch and build it up, let it go, lalalala. Picture me nodding my head, eyes glazed over.
That's what I felt like as I was reading. You've just amped my desire to read it even higher. I am really glad you liked it. I was really wanting to like it but I didn't know it was a angel book till I started reading it and well I just don't do angel books. They are just characters my mind just won't let me do, mostly I think its because of my upbringing in a Christian home that says they are sacried and shouldn't be used like this..
I am sure I sound stupid but give me werewolves, vampires, etc but don't let a angel fall.. Great review though! That is one of the longest reviews I've read from you! Thanks for making me drool a little more with anticipation! I just can't wait to get my hands on this book!!! It won't be long now! Freakin' awesome review Kari!!!! I'll put this on my list. Not his saunter down the beach toward her.

Not his unbelievable pick-up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings. So long, happily-ever-after. Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven.
She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else's game. Her heart is her own. And that's only the beginning of the end. Though focused mainly on Eden, the third person perspective is beautifully written and gives strong insight into several other characters and forging strong connections to the reader with each.
I found myself unable to get into this book. I was confused and just lost through a lot of it. Also I felt the cursing in this book was gratuitous. I loved the cover. A Touch Mortal.
