A breath of fresh air. I loved how unlike the normal and same-y YA angel novel --such as [b:Hush Hush|6339664|Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1)|Becca Fitzpatrick|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1311064637s/6339664.jpg|6525609]-- [b:Immortal City|11443325|Immortal City (Immortal City, #1)|Scott Speer|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1321559562s/11443325.jpg|16377085] was! I normally, for me, YA angel books are a BIG no-no because I just can't get into them and I always find the main characters arrogant or pathetic.. This was different. I liked the new approach to angels in society and didn't --overly-- dislike the characters..

Okay. So, what do you get when you cross Angels who have made saving people into a money-making business, a bitter teenage boy with a grudge against them, and a girl who can 'see the future' for mysterious reasons whom both the bitter teenage boy and of the shallow, vapid, money-making angels have a crush on/thing for?
One damn good book, that's what you get.
okay, so, I actually guessed what was up with Sylvester the moment we met him. And I guessed what was up with Maddy about a third of the way through the book. I really wish those mysteries would have been less obvious.
However, the murder mystery part was amazing. I seriously did not who the heck was doing this stuff until the very end, when our main characters figured it out.
Ooh, and oh, my Jacks! what I wouldn't give for that Hunk of Hot.
I like how Maddy was all ignorant of all the 'celebrities', especially living in Los Angeles, or Angel City, where all the celebrities lived to. and she was just like, "I don't get the big deal".
Go Maddy!
And you do realize that it is that very quality that enabled Maddy and Jacks to fall in love. If anyone ever watched the Disney movie Starstruck, it's a very similar situation. Okay, it's the exact same situation, except the Disney movie is minus the angels.
All in all, this is one awesome book. ( )

4.5/5
OK, funny thing is, I seem to disagree with the majority of reviewers on many YAs. I hated Obsidian and Half-Blood, and DNFed Touch, but I thought that Immortal City which keeps getting average reviews on Goodreads was an exceptionally entertaining read.

*shrug*

This was a classic Cinderella story, where Jacks is a prince in shining armor and Maddy is a poor waitress working day and night in her uncle's diner and dreaming of college. Predictable, right?

Wrong.

Despite the mass hysteria surrounding angels, both Jacks and Maddy have been sheltered from each others side of life and are more than a little naive. She makes a stupid mistake going on a date with an angelic version of Justin Bieber, he does even worse throwing her to the wolves by taking her to a huge party with paparazzi and all the famous magazines while all the angels around her keep sneering at poor girl...

Los Angeles, Immortal City, is crazily obsessed with angel celebs, the constant interviews, fashion trends, twitting, facebooking, youtubing, reality shows, their own designer lines or new perfumes... The shallowness of it all is a perfect parody on Hollywood living in its own bubble of a fake perfection.

So, Jacks and Maddy seem like a recipe for disaster until things go south, and the REAL action starts. The dizzying chase, exhilarating flights, danger from the dark evil, and the impossible sparks of intense attraction between the couple, - it pretty much becomes an urban fantasy.

If this book is turned into a TV series I wouldn't be surprised. It has the potential of achieving True Blood success. Cheesy, flashy, overblown, overdramatic and intensely entertaining characters in a mad, mad world obsessed with their existence... Instant win!

It's a fast read, and I enjoyed it very much. Give it a go. ( )
