Note: I read these books out of order, so my perspective may be a little skewed.
This book had a lot of errors that had me tripping up and stumbling over poorly edited sentences. It could definitely have benefited from another round or two of editing.
The book is very fast-paced, which I like, but it felt like things fell into place a little too quickly and neatly to be believable.
I like Bitsy’s character and enjoyed getting to know her a little better. I also liked getting to know more about the other band members and her relationships with them. I was surprised to find that the missing band member who is barely mentioned in book 2 isn’t in this book either — It makes me wonder why he needed to exist at all. I also found the character of the angel a little unstable, as his personality shifted through the story.
The end of book 1 isn’t really much of an ending. It feels like book 1 cuts off in the middle of the story, which seems even more true since book 2 picks up at the moment book 1 ends. I’d say these are not really two books, but rather one story split in two for some reason. I would have been happier with these books if I’d read them as one single novel, and I’d recommend approaching them that way.
