 Note:  I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Nikki seems to be your average badass girl - she rides a motorcycle and is a black belt karate.  But then she's being attacked and doesn't know why.  Then there's the three sons of Fallen Angels - they're sent to guard Nikki; they are Raven, Mace and Vine. 

Raven is the bad boy and falls for Nikki, as does Mace.  But that love is forbidden...of course.

I have to say that I'm really tired of supernaturals enrolling high school to 'protect' or 'get' someone.  Also - why does a supposed kickass girl always need rescuing?  Even the love triangle doesn't come through as heartfelt.  I didn't care about any of them.  I began to wonder if there was a monster hiding in the wings that would delight in eating the entire bunch of them.  Now THAT would have added some excitement!

I think part of the issue is that while I don't mind a bit of religion in my books, what else is fantasy is not religion? - this religion wasn't for me.

I wasn't ever really sure of the plot, it seemed to be more about the love triangle and how the state of being a halfling works.
