The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past...bridged two irreconcilable worlds...faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust...and all for a love that will transcend the boundary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they've worked for—and their love—forever.

My Review

There will be spoilers for the first 2 books in this review!!!!

It feels like these books just keep getting better.  Of course, the cliffhangers keep getting better as well, grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

I think I enjoyed this book even more than the first 2 books, and I really liked both of those.  In this book, the mystery was kicked up even more after it is revealed that Nora has lost her memory.  That means that she doesn’t even recognize Patch when he makes his first appearance in the novel (although the reader knows who he is!)  I really enjoy the intrigue in these novels.  Sort of like in Harry Potter, I’m constantly looking for clues to reveal what is really going on.  That really pulls me into the story and makes it hard to put the book down.

I enjoyed Patch’s character much more in this book.  In book 2 especially, I wasn’t sure that I liked him at all.  But after seeing all that he did for Nora in this book, I’m sold on him.  In fact, I really liked both Patch and Nora a whole lot more after reading this book.  I seriously want to be their BFFs.  I still don’t like Vee very much.  And I just want to slap Nora’s mom silly in this one.

It was interesting to read this book because some of the things that were a mystery for Nora were not a mystery for me.  Of course, there was plenty to still keep me interested because even though I knew things that Nora couldn’t remember, it just meant that I had a different take on the things that neither of us knew about!  I’m not sure if I’m really explaining the whole experience the right way, though.  You may have to experience it for yourself to understand!

But I do have a message for Becca Fitzpatrick:  Woman, your cliffhangers are giving me heart fail!!!  This one was a total surprise and left me with my mouth hanging open!  I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in this series.

My grade for this one is an A.  These books just keep getting better.  October 13, 2012 cannot come soon enough for me!
