On the night of Skye's seventeenth birthday, she meets two enigmatic strangers. Complete opposites—like fire and ice—Asher is dark and wild, while Devin is fair and aloof. Their sudden appearance sends Skye's life into a tailspin. She has no idea what they want, or why they seem to follow her every move—only that their presence coincides with a flurry of strange events. Soon she begins to doubt not just the identity of the two boys, but also the truth about her own past. In the dead of a bitingly cold Colorado winter, Skye finds herself coming to terms with the impossible secret that threatens to shatter her world. Torn between Asher, who she can’t help falling for, and Devin, who she can’t stay away from, the consequences of Skye’s choice will reach further than the three of them could ever imagine.Book Title: A Beautiful Dark ( A Beautiful Dark #1)

My Rating: 3/5 stars
I am actually quite surprised with this book, I was expecting myself to not like it, I even thought that I wont be able to finish it. I even thought i would write a review that will rant about it, but you see something about The Beautiful Dark that got me really compelled the momemnt that I read it... was it because there was two hot guys appeared out of nowhere in the book? or was it beacuse the whole concept was really different. to be honest I can't pin point what got me to like this book
. But one thing I am certain the book is very light, and I just feel like the whole book made me really comfortable while reading it. the story about stray and rebellious angels got my attention, and the way it was delivered was really flowy, ahhmm... you won't feel any hesitations or doubts on how it was narrated, I really liked the campfire story you all know I'm a real sucker for legends and myths and that campfire story was really something. the characters are somehow like able, not a big fan of Skye I think I like Cassie and Raven than her, I mean Skye is just the kind of girl that doesn't know how to emphatize with Asher and Devin's situation, OMG! she has really got the guts to flirt with both of them, knowing beforehand on what their intentions and fates are. MEH! I have a huge intuition that the second book will be better than this one. I just wish there will be more magic, angels and a lot more background story in the characters. So in a way I have high expectations for the second book. Hope It will be better than this one.
