Review: Immortal City (Immortal City #1) by Scott Speer

Immortal City (Immortal City #1) by Scott Speer


Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city filled with them.

He's days away from becoming a full Guardian, and people around the world are already competing for the chance to be watched over by him. Everyone's obsessed with the Angels and the lucky people they protect - everyone except for Madison Montgomery.

Maddy's the one girl in Angel City who doesn't breathlessly follow the Angels on TV and gossip blogs. When she meets Jackson, she doesn't recognize him. But Jackson is instantly captivated by her, and against all odds the two fall in love.

Maddy is swiftly caught up in Jackson's scene, a world of glamour, paparazzi - and murder. A serial killer is on the loose, leaving dead Angels' wings for the police to find on the Walk of Fame. Even the Guardians are powerless to protect themselves in the face of this threat & and this time it's up to Maddy to save Jackson.



First, I must say that I don't like the guy in the trailer. In my mind Jackson Godspeed looks more like the guy in the cover, and for me he has dark hair lol. (I want what I want ladies! hehe)

Second, I bought this book at TBD, as always because they are amazing. I chose the hardback because this cover was nicer than the paperback (didn't like the letters in that one) and friggin' argentinian mail  lost it. I bought a new one, and guess what? they both were delivered to me in the same day, 5 months later!  #$#"&"&"°?! WTF????
I gave the second copy to a friend who I think will enjoy it as much as I did, though.

Anyway, back to business. I am so happy with myself for having the patience of waiting for it, because I absolutely adored this story.

If you are looking for an average teen angel story, this one is not for you. 
We are use to stories were vampires are famous but it is the first book I've read were humans are aware of the existance of Angels.

Not only that, they worship them. They are celebrities. And some of them are guardian angels... but guess what? they won't save you for love no no no, they will save you for money... at least most of them...
until Jackson Godspeed...

The world created by Scott Speer is incredible, he thought even the tiniest detail. He actually invented things such as a reality show where the winner got a year of free saving by an angel.

Maddy is well... Maddy. A little lot whiny and she sounds so silly and smug with that "I don't care about angels" attitude that she made me angry a few times.

Jackson is sooooooo great. Loved his personality, his looks, his temperance and the way he kept himself "down to earth" (no pun intended lol) even if he was the most famous, sexy and rich guy in the world.

His assistant is so funny, don't remember her name right now but I loved her little appearances.

The scene while they dance was super well developed, I loved it!

What else?

Plot: this book is not only about a teen romance, it has a very interesting plot. There's been some mysterious deaths in Angel City and they are targeting angels... 
This got me glued to the pages and some parts were eerie!!! I won't spoiled anything though, this is a book worth reading.

And BTW... Scott Speer is a hottie hehe. :p
