Book Review: Immortal City

Title: Immortal City
Author: Scott Speer
Publication: Razorbill
Release Date: April 3, 2012
Amazon Rating: 4 out of 5
My rating: 5 out of 5 

Summary: Maddie is a young adult who lives in Angel City. A place where Angels live. She absolutely hates Angels. Now the most famous Angel, Jackson Godspeed, finds himself in a situation where he has to hide in a diner. The waitress just happens to be Maddie, and the diner is run by her Uncle. Jackson ends up taking Maddie to glamorous parties and has her live the life he lives. In the city someone is killing Angels. No one kills Angels. Angels also have rules; they cannot save people they are not assigned to. Maddie's question is will he save her? 

My review: I loved this book. I pictured Jackson as basically a Zac Efron or any teenage heart throb. I have so much respect for Scott for comparing Angels to celebrities. Through out the book they were the celebrities being followed by paparazzi and couldn't get one place without being stopped by a fan. When Maddie and Jackson fall in love it is really sweet. He takes her to an event and allows her to get anything because it is her night. Well it is actually a party for him but they get all the goodies for free. Then there is this mystery on who is killing Angels. Then Jackson saved Maddie and now they have other people chasing them to separate them. Another thing that I liked about this book is that even though it is a series it actually had an ending. What I mean by that is that it didn't have a cliff hanger. Overall, this is a must read!
