When I read a book, I want to be able to feel some sort of connection to the character but I just felt that the characters weren't that relatable.

Synopsis

Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city filled with them. He's days away from becoming a full Guardian, and people around the world are already competing for the chance to be watched over by him. Everyone's obsessed with the Angels and the lucky people they protect - everyone except for Madison Montgomery.

Maddy's the one girl in Angel City who doesn't breathlessly follow the Angels on TV and gossip blogs. When she meets Jackson, she doesn't recognize him. But Jackson is instantly captivated by her, and against all odds the two fall in love.

Maddy is swiftly caught up in Jackson's scene, a world of glamour, paparazzi - and murder. A serial killer is on the loose, leaving dead Angels' wings for the police to find on the Walk of Fame. Even the Guardians are powerless to protect themselves in the face of this threat . . . and this time it's up to Maddy to save Jackson.

It was also refreshing to read an angel book where the angels are actually out in the open and not a big secret.

I wish I could go back in time and read the book so much slower, because it was so good.

think he fell a little flat in the character department. I feel they could have been a little more fleshed out and well rounded.

sea of angel books, Immortal City stands out for all the right reasons. Original premise. Interesting characters. Plenty of mystery and suspense. An angel book that I can proudly say I read.

I was really intrigued by the way Mr. Speer took the Angel genre and gave it his own unique spin, that is what kept me reading this book page after page, front to back in one day.

I really did enjoy this story, the concept of Angels being celebrities and the added murder mystery that weaves through the story.
