Goodreads Summary:

Life as the Preliator is harder than Ellie ever imagined.
Balancing real life with the responsibility of being Heaven’s warrior is a challenge for Ellie. Her relationship with Will has become all business, though they both long for each other. And now that the secret of who she really is has come out, so have Hell’s strongest reapers. Grown bold and more vicious, the demonic threaten her in the light of day and stalk her in the night.
She’s been warned.
Cadan, a demonic reaper, comes to her with information about Bastian’s new plan to destroy Ellie’s soul and use an ancient relic to wake all the souls of the damned and unleash them upon humanity. As she fights to stay ahead of Bastian’s schemes , the revelations about those closest to her awaken a dark power within Ellie that threatens to destroy everything—including herself.
She’ll be betrayed.
Treachery comes even from those whom she loves, and Ellie is broken by the deaths of those who stood beside her in this Heavenly war. Still, she must find a way to save the world, herself, and her love for Will. If she fails, there will be hell to pay.

My Review: This book was even better than the first book which often happens with series I think.

Will is my newest book crush but I have to say, I think I like Cadan even more. Something about demonic and dangerous boys gets me. Both of them are equally crush worthy though so either way, I’m one happy fangirl.

I didn’t like the main character and how often she cried and how many times she needed Will to save her. I wanted her to toughen up and take responsibility for everything and kick some demon booty. With the way that this book ended though, I have a feeling she is totally going to turn into a badass which will be fantastic. As far as main characters go though, she was okay.

I absolutely love Marcus and i’m not sure why. He just has such a calming character in the book and he feels like an older brother or something. I also really like Nathanial and I am not happy with his situation, that’s all I can say on that topic.

The book had an interesting and fast paced plot but it got to the point where I wasn’t sure how the author was going to continue for a whole other book but then the ending happened. It was seriously insane and I didn’t think she would go that far but she did it and I am freaking out writing this review because I just HAVE to read the next one. Review coming soon because I am addicted.

I would definitely recommend this series to all of you. It’s fantastic. You can buy it here.

Welcome to Luca. Paradise beneath the surface of the moon. Thanks to the philanthropic genius, Arthur Bennington, life after death is no longer a matter of faith. And with a one time payment of thirteen million dollars, you can be reborn on Luca and allowed to enjoy paradise for all of eternity.
Manny is an employee of Luca, working remotely from earth. He spends his days building the skies for the afterlife, listening to the reborn describe their perfect day and bringing that vision to life.
Evelyn is a resident of Luca. After a car accident cuts her life short at the age of sixteen, Evelyn awakes to find herself in a perfect body, living a perfect life in a perfect world.
But when it’s discovered that Evelyn doesn’t belong in paradise, that she had violated her contract to gain entry into Luca, and furthermore that Manny, her first love, had aided in her unlawful entry—Evelyn is slated for elimination.
That’s when Manny decides he needs to bridge the gap between the living and the dead. Using the only tool available to him, the sky, Manny hatches a plan to save the only person he has ever loved. But what Manny uncovers only leads to more questions as he learns the Paradise Project may not be what everyone has been lead to believe.

My Review: I received a free copy of this book in an exchange for an honest review.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book because I haven’t ever heard of anything like it. Ronald DeStefano wrote this book in the form of an app and each chapter has a different song that he wrote to go with it. The background of each chapter is also different and it is really interesting how the pictures match what is going on.

I really enjoyed the app and reading the book in this format. It was a bit disorienting at first, getting used to reading like this, but I would definitely do it again. I liked the original music as well, it was interesting to listen to, especially with the story.

The story was unique. It wasn’t addicting and it definitely wasn’t the greatest book I have ever read, but I enjoyed it. The part about the lens and how people could chat with each other and basically think everything and function like a smart phone had to be my favorite part. I also liked the afterlife/heaven idea because I’ve never heard anything like that.

I would recommend this book if you want to try something new because it is a really good concept.
