Diving into this sequel, it felt like the writing got a bit of a facelift compared to the first one, though that might just be thanks to some translation touch-ups. While a few phrases lacked that deep flavor, they were mostly forgivable.
But, hey, there’s a hitch – there’s a bit of a memory gap between this one and the last. Some details just don’t sync up. Now, Nora, our leading lady, can be a bit… let’s say, oblivious. She tends to stir the pot unnecessarily, sparking spats with Patch that put a real strain on their vibe.
Then comes the head-scratcher – Nora’s mood swings. One moment she’s all clear-headed, and the next, she’s accusing Patch of offing her dad. No confirmation or denial, and they never circle back to it when the real culprit surfaces. A quick chat could’ve spiced up the plot, but Nora stays true to herself.
Despite these quirky character moments, the overall story keeps you hooked. It’s got this cool vibe that makes you wonder how it’d play out on the big screen. 🎬📚

Nora Grey’s life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn’t pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it. A mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He’s more elusive than ever (if that’s possible) and what’s worse, he seems to be spending time with Nora’s archenemy, Marcie Millar.
Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town if Patch hadn’t been acting so distant. Even with Scott’s totally infuriating attitude, Nora finds herself drawn to him – despite her lingering feelings that he is hiding something.
If that weren’t enough, Nora is haunted by images of her murdered father and comes to question whether her Nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death. Desperate to figure out what happened, she puts herself in increasingly dangerous situations to get the answer. But maybe some things are better left buried because the truth could destroy everything – and everyone – she trusts.
