Can he be trusted? Lance illuminste a good guy I guess, but I was very skeptical about him in this installment. After I took time to reflect about the book, I decided that I wasn’t going to torture myself with the story ever again. Illuminate is an exciting saga of a teen’s first taste of independence, her experience in the lap of luxury, and her discovery she may possess strength greater than she ever knew. It may be a debut, but from the first paragraph readers will feel they are in the hands of a confident, professional writer.


It was very creative. How can you not love that? The romance is definitely one to keep an eye on, and I really loved them together.

The only thing is that some parts seemed a little long, but otherwise I had no complaints. Some disappoint, but others, like this one, get it more or less right. But the only problem is that I didn’t like how the author manipulated some of the characters, especially Lance.


The story takes place in The Lexington Hotel which, in reality, was torn down in the eighties. Feb 18, Jessica rated it really liked it. Dec 01, Regina marked it as to-read Shelves: Ian sad about this as I don’t like beginning a series and not finding out how it ends. First of all, the characterization. This debut novel is set to wow a lot of readers.


Haven ist in diesem Band etwas vorsichtiger geworden, jedoch ist sie immer noch etwas naiv und glaubt an das Gute im Menschen. Although it failed to wow me, I was left enthralled by the mystery, and fascinated by the glamor.

Auch wird die Beziehung zwischen Lance und Haven deutlicher. The love triangle is slowly budding and it piques my interest since it is not a “love-at-first-sight” scenario.

Jan 11, oliviasbooks rated it did not like ikluminate Shelves: I loved his interactions with Voodoo Queen he’s apprenticing for as well. She wants to be a doctor and with that plan in mind she is volunteering at the local hospital, where her adoptive mother works, and applies to tons of programs to earn those extra credit that might help her get into an esteemed school.

Overall, I give this book a 4 stars rating. You don’t always see gay angels, so, for me, that’s an added perk to this series. I was therefore quite excited to read Infatuate ; I was hoping that Ms.

Im Vergleich illuminnate doch um einiges besser. While it served its purpose in really driving the emotional tension of things throughout the book, I’m still not entirely sure if it was needed. Illuminate is extremely long for a debut novel, and there were definitely some scenes that seemed superfluous that could have been edited out.


I kept going back to it again and again but every time I kept getting more and more tired and annoyed with the characters and the plot in aimmee self that totally felt like it wasn’t moving! Even Haven has a separate love interest. I believe that when a book is good that even if you still have pages to go, you get scared that it’s gonna end, which, by far, didn’t happen in this book.


Be walking around in an amazing hotel, then defeat some demon things, and then BAM! I love how much Lucian loves Haven, and how he’d do anything for her, including watching her be happy with someone else.

Illuminate (Gilded Wings, book 1) by Aimee Agresti

In her old life, Haven was ordinary. What I did love is that all of our main cast and new characters really get put through the mill this time – Agresti doesn’t hold much back here, and I thought that was wonderful. And overall, I loved the way her character grew in this installment. I feel like the book should have been a real person, even some random homeless person Haven bumps into on one of her outings, rather than a book with writing that appears only when she needs it, and handily disappears whenever someone shows up at her room.

I loved the plot of this book infinitely more than the last.
