      SPOILER ALERT When I first read the blurb, I thought, Hey, maybe this isn t as clich d as the other stories these days Sure, it was the same angel paranormal and human fall in love, out of his league, forbidden romance, but the whole concept of angels as celebrities was interesting, albeit stupid I wasn t expecting much, but even compared to my lenient expectations, this wasn t very great anyways First of all, and the most idiotic thing, for which I shouldn t have read this book in the FIRST pla [...]

      THIS is an angel book Are you f serious After this book, I think Unearthly deserves an AWARD because it is so freaking good This book is a fail Angels revealed themselves and now they are making money with saving those who can pay them TV Shows, Reality shows and Twitter posts about angels Angels are celebrities and they enjoy their wealth and fame I am fine with authors who differ from usual definitions, but I really don t like authors who turn some of the religious or mythological creatures in [...]

      Also Found On A Book and A RecordI don t know why, but as I was reading this I got the distinct impression that it was written to that Foster the People song Pumped Up Kicks No joke Every time Jacks was headed to an event I had the first few chords of that song begin to run through my brain Anyways, that s not really the point Immortal City is a good idea I like the idea, I had high hopes for the idea Hot super star angel falling for a mortal I ll take that for a light read Sure had been done be [...]

      ORIGINALLY POSTED ON AFTERWORDS While I started Immortal City wary of hoping for too much, in lieu of never reading a truly great angel story, it became promising very quickly Mostly because of how unique the plot was, when in theory it shouldn t be The general premise is fairly unoriginal supernatural boy falls for normal girl Been there, read that, have the bookshelves to prove it.But it s the setting of Immortal City that truly sets it apart imagine modern time with one key difference Angels [...]

      In a world where you put the TV on, your bound to fall on some reality show and where real life heroes are made into over night celebs Scott Speer gives his own take of the not so bright lights of this world with Immoral City and celebrity angels Angels whom have fallen into the world of greed and bright lights, where everything is given to them on a whim of saving the lives of those who can afford it.In this world there are those who could care less about angels and their celeb status Maddy Mon [...]

      There always have been a debate in support or against the statement that a celebrity can write or not, and most answers were used to be no, as we have previously witnessed some horrible piece came of out of celebrities unthinkable thoughts which doesn t even falls in the category of literature This time a celebrity came in field of young adult literature and conquers all conventional conception of that has been running around Yes, I m talking about Scott Speer and his YA incredible debut Immorta [...]

      Well, when my uncle brought me this I was really excited, it looks amazing, and the description sounds pretty good The book itself Not so much Note the book says If you quote from this galley, please refer to the final printed book but as the book isn t available until April, I know I ll forget to write the review then So please take notice that my review is not of the final book Just a few chapters in, and I already knew this book was going to be all over the place The book flip flops between t [...]

      Oh my FREAKING heck I just finished this book and can I say, This book totally ROCKED my world I seriously have not been so sucked into a book like this one in a long, long time I literally read it all in one day I did stop to eat and go potty, but I am ready to pick it up and read it again Call me sexist, but when I first saw that a man wrote this book, I had my doubts Now, let me explain I have read some great books written by men, recent ones too, but I have not experienced one that totally R [...]

      Honestly, I m kind of embarrassed to admit to having read this I ve read a lot of trash this year, but this book was seriously terrible I was intrigued by the premise guardian angels have come out to the world, and instead of performing anonymous miracles they now provide paid protection After the first couple of chapters I also got the impression it was going to be a social commentary on how our culture is obsessed with celebrities.Lol, no It was trash Pure and utter trash Maddy was kind of end [...]

      I wanted so badly to like this book, I really did have high expectations and perhaps that was part of the problem Initially the cover is what drew me to Immortal City, just look at it, it s fantastic The premise was also interesting to me I was prepared to ignore the fact that the angels presented in the premise were anything but Biblical angels because the idea of it fascinated me so much Yes, some points of it were terribly, horrendously obviouske Jackson Jacks falling in love with Maddy and s [...]

    11. Dani on said:

      I loved the concept I loved the characters ButNO ONE PROOF READ THIS BOOK There are so many grammar errors that whoever edited it needs to be fired It is so distracting to have fragmented sentences and repetitive wording The story is awesome too but there are holes in it Spoiler alert At the end there is a human who sells his soul to a demon who they call a dark angel, confusing because it looks nothing like an angel and this human kills angels But all through out the book they say only an angel [...]

    12. Giselle (Book Nerd Canada) on said:

      Angels are treated as celebrities They re paid by wealthy humans to protect them So in a way angels are working for the humans It s a weird concept, but I also found that some angels like Jacks aren t fazed by all the glitz and the glamour When the most famous angel of them all, Jacks is about to be assigned a human to protect, he meets Maddy And you can guess what happens here They fall in love.I heard on the grapevine that this book was materialistic and a little floozy, and sure there are poi [...]

      I HAVE NEVER FELT SO CONFLICTED I REALLY liked this book AND I REALLY didn t like this book notice how I didn t use love and hate , yea, cause I didn t feel either my feelings weren t that strong ANYWAYS I liked everything from the plot, to the characters, and the unpredictability of the story, it just kept me interested and wanting to know and , I WANTED TO KNOW EVERYTHING.That was basically what got me to finish the book because I really didn t like how there were so many extremely boring fil [...]

      3.5No voy a negar que empec este libro con escepticismo Tampoco voy a negar que cuando vi m s o menos c mo es el mundo que cre el autor me sorprendi para bien Si esa misma idea se hubiera usado en un libro no juvenil, sta habr a sido una tremenda historia De todos modos esta novela es mucho mejor de lo que esperaba si se dejan pasar algunas cositas.Por alguna raz n que no es del todo clara, los ngeles se hicieron visibles para los humanos hace m s de un siglo y ahora conviven con ellos Son las n [...]

      4.5 5OK, funny thing is, I seem to disagree with the majority of reviewers on many YAs I hated Obsidian and Half Blood, and DNFed Touch, but I thought that Immortal City which keeps getting average reviews on was an exceptionally entertaining read shrug This was a classic Cinderella story, where Jacks is a prince in shining armor and Maddy is a poor waitress working day and night in her uncle s diner and dreaming of college Predictable, right Wrong Despite the mass hysteria surrounding angels, b [...]

      This book was really good I love the mystery and romance to it The dialogue was so good about there different worlds I loved the character s personalities, it was great I wish there is a second book coming out

    17. Lili on said:

      4.5 starsScott Speer re imagined Los Angeles, also known as Immortal City, in this amazing tale where angels aren t really the most angelic, despite their angelic duties Guardian Angels have been around forever, protecting humans by performing anonymous saves and giving them a second chance at life Then, the American Civil War happened The angels were disgusted that brothers were killing their own brothers and they decided that they should make their presence known, refusing to help this seeming [...]

      So, this was actuallyetty good I ve been looking forward to reading this book for a while now because it sounded really interesting and I m happy I finally got to read it.One thing that I really, really liked was the whole concept of Angels charging people for their services I mean, we never think that if Angels were real that we d have to pay them to help us since, you know, they re suppose to be guard us humans from the bad things But no, that s not how things work in this book Here, Angels re [...]

      Review Immortal City will leave you wanting It swept me off my feet and I don t want to come back down yet It wasn t what I was expecting and that was a good thing It took me by surprise, even if it was a little predictable at times, you never knew the big things that were going to happen.Cover So my copy of the book had a different cover, which I loved It was really shiny and had a shirtless winged guy on the cover I was pretty happy with it The cover that is on , I don t really like It has so [...]

      This was an action packed read with a lot of ups and downs Maddy lives a simple life, her parents died when she was young so she has lived with her Uncle Kevin and worked at his Diner for as long as she can remember Her home overlooks The Immortal City sign which was put in place when Angel s made themselves known to humans over a hundred years ago They have created a trade from being guardians to the rich which in turn made them famous Everyone wants to be protected by them, look as beautiful a [...]

      What about him Brad asked Him the Angel asked Yeah, Brad said, and pointed to the tailgate as it slipped under the waves Him The Angel looked at the sinking pickup as if seeing it for the first time He didn t have coverage, he said p 4, ARCIMMORTAL CITY begins with a scene that worms under your skin Rich, careless Brad causes a fatal car wreck, but escapes with the aid of an Angel aid he paid for The other, innocent driver dies And, as we find out, no one in Angel City Los Angeles cares They re [...]

    22. Tati on said:

      I think the best way to describe this book is angels meet True Blood.Around a hundred years ago maybe , Angels revealed themselves to mankind They are now the elite and charge huge amounts of money for protecting people capitalist Angels, in other words Jackson Godspeed is mere days away from being Commissioned and getting his first Protection Maddy is a regular human girl, who was raised by her uncle, Kevin, and has no interest whatsoever in Angels Through unusual events, Maddy gets sucked in [...]

    23. Abbie on said:

      Okay, so I gave this 4 stats because I enjoyed reading it not because it s amazingly life changing Actually I didn t like the concept of angel bodyguards at first because angels are supposed to be pure of heart and not care about getting paid to watch over people I even wondered how God let them sell their abilities for something as common as money.But Maddy and Jackson s love affair made my palpable dislike of corny angel fantasy books disappear Maddy, a seeming ordinary human with special abil [...]

    24. Ashley on said:

      Rating 4 5 Minor spoilers In the Immortal City that would be Los Angeles , angels are huge After revealing themselves to the world about a century ago, they now use their saving abilities as a business For large sums of money, a person can receive a guardian angel who will save their life should they ever be in mortal danger Jackson is in the process of being promoted to guardian angel He also happens to be the most popular angel in LA, so all eyes are on him On the other hand, Maddy doesn t fol [...]

      3.5 starsI ll give this author credit He and yes, my mind kind of bobbled over the fact that he s a he surprised me in a good way In the massive field of YA romance angel books, he s managed to craft something a little different from the norm And that, in and of itself, was notable Some things I liked As mentioned above, this was something new, plot wise There s certainly the paranormal YA angel romance thing going on, but there s also bit of good old crime drama in here, too The setting is uniq [...]

      The first time I read this book, I had rated it a 5 And I think I was a little too enthusiastic about it Probably because this was my first book about angel celebrities, the cover is to die for, and I just loved the story back then At first when I was at the library this book called to me.First it was the cover how is the guy on the cover not hot, and attention grabbing Second, the description, it was like the perfect book for me I mean, it has angels, a famous person ending up liking a normal g [...]

      My Rating 3.5 5First thoughts Entertaining, decadent and a little bit heart breaking Immortal City turned out to be a fast paced read that will make readers wonder about its world and morals While I couldn t connect to its characters as fast as I d hoped to, I definitely enjoyed reading it and often had a hard time putting it down If you re looking for a unique angel story, this might be the right one for you.More detailed I fell in love with the sound of Immortal City immediately when I first r [...]

      Very interesting premise There s been an influx of angel related YA fiction in the market recently, kind of tagging along on the supernatural coattails of vampires and werewolves and fae and etc I ve tried a few and just been kind of disgusted with the writing quality of some of them Speer s novel, however, captivated me from the very beginning with an incredibly intriguing and, might I say it, incredibly American and by American I mean extremely capitalist set up for his type of angels.In Speer [...]
