"It's as if I have no choice. As if my heart has already succumbed to his desire to make me trust him. He wants me so much that it's becoming impossible to separate the real from the fake, the truth from the lies ... good from evil.
He is both sin and virtue.
A monster and a saint."
Angel wasn't given a chance in life. He was raised to be what his father wanted.
Sky had a good life growing up but eventually learned that there was evil in the world.
Unfortunately or fortunately, however you might want to look at it, their lives crossed paths.

I felt the need to include the warning because Twenty-One does have a lot of dark elements that may bother some people. Just sayin'.
I have no problem with dark story lines and enjoyed Twenty-One. The story of Angel and Sky is a hard one to describe without giving away a part of what makes this book tick. Their story is dark and depressing, but there is a glimmer of hope if you look hard enough and wait it out.
It did take me til about half way through to truly get into the story. I'm the type of reader that doesn't like to put a book down once I start it, but I did put this one down a few times before I got fully immersed. I think my problem was with Angel's character. He's this badass alpha but he has some whiney pussy moments that really bugged me. He becomes more alpha-ish around 52%. The ending was perfect! I loved the turn of events and how everything came together.
This is a standalone with NO cliffhanger. Story is told in dual POVs.
