I used to think I was a pretty normal teenager: I got up in the morning, went to school, did my homework, played videogames, and dreamed about Karen—one of the girls in my class. When I found out she liked me, too, I thought I was the luckiest guy alive. But everything changed when we kissed. Something awakened inside of us, and now we know that we're not normal teenagers after all.

For a while I thought these powers were pretty amazing—I mean, who wouldn't want superpowers? But it stopped being fun when Karen started hearing a voice in her head. A voice that told her I was her enemy. A voice that could take control of her. A voice that was only the first glimpse of a world we never knew existed. 

Its kinda' hard for me to write a review for this book, Not because I did not like the story but simply because the book didn't impress me as much as I hoped for. The start is actually good, but as the story continues, I find it harder and harder to connect with its characters.

The story started with teenagers developing mysterious powers. It was a hype for me at first. Yeah, Just like some YA fiction out there and I must say, I am a Fan. Yet after the revelation that they where in fact a vessel for Angels? Nah. Not a fan of this, suddenly its too much. I can't find the right world but it just did not fit in. There was a lack of description, although that might be described in the next book because this has a short story after all, it still felt very vogue for me.
