“It may be a debut, but from the first paragraph readers will feel they are in the hands of a confident, professional writer. . . . Agresti builds suspicion deftly and slowly, keeping readers turning pages as her story grows. . . . Smart, well-crafted and sophisticated; without a doubt, this belongs on the top of the stack of the current crop of angel books. More, please!”  –Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Part The Picture of Dorian Gray, part The Devil Wears Prada, this original and engrossing story will keep surprising readers right up to the thrilling climax.”–Josephine Angelini, author of Starcrossed

“Haven is a character who will definitely surprise you—in the best way possible. Mysterious and deliciously creepy, Agresti’s debut will keep you turning pages until the explosive climax.”–Cara Lynn Shultz, author of Spellbound

  1. Aimee, I’m on page 357 right now…. Just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying Illuminate! Every once in a while I’ll grab a book of the new realeses self and become both delighted and disappointed that I did… Illuminate is one of those books! I’ll be eagerly awaiting the rest of the series. (yep, I’m not even finished and I’m already excited for the other books…. Its that good!)

    Cheers! :)

  3. Started reading it, and I can’t put it down! So good! I get mad the second my mother forces me to stop reading and go to bed! Once again, so good! I can not wait for book 2 and 3 and 4 and however many more you will add to the series! ♥

  4. OMG this book was amazing! It was a thrilling and entrancing tale of good verses evil and the balance between both. The chemistry and confusion between the characters was brilliant and it kept me turning page after page. Despite being over 500 pages, i was able to finish the entire book in just one day, i read non stop for about nine hours! I would most definately recommend this book to a friend, stranger, anyone, and i am eagerly awaiting the sequel!

  5. Just finished Illuminate and LOVED IT!!!! (especially the ending :) ) cannot WAIT for the sequel though!!!!! Next year can’t come soon enough!!!!

  6. Ms. Agresti,
    I”m a 49 year old women who reads about 3-4 books a week. Illuminate was a suggested read in a magazine I was looking through. I LOVED your book! It was fantastic, and I couldn’t put it down. It’s definitily not just for young adults, but for all ages. I work in a school and will spread the word about your book. Looking forward to the rest of the series , and hopefully movies soon.
    Thanks for writing iIlluminate,
    A devoted fan,
