I felt like no matter how much Jacinda wanted to make things better, she ended up inadvertently wreaking havoc on the lives of all those who cared about her. It was frustrating at times--in Book 1, Jacinda is top dog. She's the one the pride cares about above all else. In this book, she is unwelcome, unrespected and her self-esteem suffers because of it. Watching her mother deteriorate and her relationship with her sister was really painful as well. Sometimes I wished she'd forget about Will and fall for Cassian. I have to admit, I was more into Cassian in this book than Will. Can't wait to see how things tie up in the 3rd book. This is by far, one of my favorite series of all time. ...more
Paradise is the story of a small-town country rock band. It conjures up images of pasture parties, country-fried cooking, sweet summer nights and SoutParadise is the story of a small-town country rock band. It conjures up images of pasture parties, country-fried cooking, sweet summer nights and Southern romance. For Paisley, the band's drummer, Texaspalooza could be just what she's been waiting for- a one way ticket to country super stardom. But when she develops a romance with the group's fiery lead singer, Paisley must decide if what she wants is really what she needs.
Okay, I must admit, I was a little worried about taking on a book like this. I don't gravitate toward "realistic fiction" very much. If it doesn't have supernatural creatures, it's usually not on my radar. But I wanted to branch out and try something new. It took me a chapter or two to get hooked on Paradise, but then before I knew it, I was completely caught up in Paisley's life- her highs were my highs and her lows were my lows. I loved Paisley. Being a city girl myself, Jill Alexander's Paradise opened up a completely different world for me. The way the characters spoke, their manner of dress and even the things they did for entertainment- it all had a laid-back kind of charm that immediately captured my interest. There are creative song lyrics interspersed between the chapters which also helped to capture the mood of certain events transpiring in the book at that particular moment. I thought this was a nice touch as well.
I enjoy music like most everyone but I don't live and breathe it. The characters in Paradise did though and once I got to know them, I felt their passion. Moved by the music, I wanted to pick up Paisley's drumsticks and play along with the band, caught up in the magic of a perfect set. I even found myself googling Vallento accordion style music. (Who knew accordion playing could be cool, or better yet--sexy?!). But the characterization in Paradise is what really stood out to me, It was thoughtful and full of emotion. Paisley's long-suffering sister Lacey, her well-meaning but overbearing mother and amiable father all captured my heart. I felt like I knew them intimately. I understood why her mother was the way she was and why her sister was afraid to do anything about it. The way the family evolved and eventually became stronger was meaningful for me as well. I loved Paisley's character most of all, but I know I fell a little bit in love with Gabe too.
Be prepared to walk away from Paradise wiping away a few tears. The ending is incredibly shocking and unexpected. I can't say I'm thrilled with how Jill Alexander ended the book, but it definitely left an emotional punch that I thought about for days. And shouldn't a good book do just that?...more
Full of mystery, intrigue and that trademark humor she's known for with The Drake Chronicles, Alyxandra Harvey exceeded my expectations with Haunting Full of mystery, intrigue and that trademark humor she's known for with The Drake Chronicles, Alyxandra Harvey exceeded my expectations with Haunting Violet. This was more than just a ghost story. It was a well-thought out paranormal piece of fiction told with great attention to historical accuracy. I thought Harvey did an amazing job with the historical aspects of the book. I loved the Victorian backdrop and felt as if I had stepped straight into the 1870's with each turn of the page. It was obvious to me that Harvey did an incredible amount of homework in constructing the scenes with the fake séances as well as other details. When I think back about the book, one scene always stands out in my mind- Violet being forced by her mother to wear a pair of bellows strapped under her dress so that she could create a "supernatural" breeze under the table for her mother's customers! Hilarious! It really was fascinating to me just how much people who want to believe so badly can be easily led astray with just a little ingenuity and a few careful props.
Right from page one, I couldn't help but connect to Violet. This was a girl whose whole life revolved around her fraudulent mother's schemes to trick upper class society into thinking she was a powerful medium. Yet she maintained an incredible sense of compassion and determination. I couldn't help but become vested in her story. There was a good romance in Haunting Violet that complemented the ghost story while never overshadowing it. I adored Colin, the Irish orphan Violet had known and worked with since childhood alongside her mother. If I had one critique of the book it would be that I almost wish it had been more on the adult side- I think I would've enjoyed it even more if the romance had been taken up a notch and the murder mystery a little more intense. Also a couple of times I did notice that the dialogue became a little "modernized", but these things were minor and in no way hindered my overall enjoyment.
Alyxandra Harvey's writing seems to have grown with each of her books, and this was my favorite one. I think it has something for everyone- mystery, supernatural and a touch of romance....more
First things first. If you are looking for a strict retelling of Peter Pan, then this book is probably not the right one for you. While the authors drFirst things first. If you are looking for a strict retelling of Peter Pan, then this book is probably not the right one for you. While the authors draw heavily from the characters and makeup of J.M. Barrie's classic story, they have also woven an entirely new tale with Another Pan. Readers of the "Another" series will be familiar with the location though- Another Pan takes place at the Marlowe School, the infamous locale from the first book, Another Faust. Note: While both books are connected, you don't need to have read the first one at all to enjoy Another Pan.
OVERVIEW: As Another Pan kicks off, we become acquainted with Wendy and John Darling, two teenagers attending Marlowe, the creepiest prep school ever. Having been familiar with the first book, I have to say that Marlowe has officially evolved into a living, breathing villain for me. Underneath the seemingly prestigious halls of the academy are hidden passageways with Egyptian tombs, quick sand, and most importantly—a mythic and highly sought after substance that some people (ahem-Peter) will stop at nothing to get. Villeroy, the abominable governess from the first book is back as well—this time as the sickly school nurse who secretly guards the eerie alternate dimension below the basement from unwelcome rich kids.
MY THOUGHTS: Another Pan is both a character-driven novel and one that's rich in vivid imagery with an imaginative, fast-paced plot. You'll recognize a lot of familiar names—Peter, Wendy, The Lost Boys and Tink (n/k/a Tina) are all on the scene. My favorite character was actually the fiery Tina—I loved how vivacious and head-strong she was. There was nothing she wouldn't do for Peter, but in the end she finally opened her eyes and saw just what type of person he really was. Though not a central focus of the book, I found her personality the most intriguing. Wendy and John were well-fleshed out and always full of personality, but John did test my patience at times with all his posturing to be "cool". I enjoyed Wendy's character much more—I loved her interactions with Peter and her strong, moral character. As for Peter--wow, what a piece of work! This was a guy who cared about nothing more than maintaining his youth, so much so that I felt like he had forgotten how to really live—how to enjoy the present, how to laugh and how to love. The Nayeri's depicted him as a dangerous, handsome bad boy who lured people to him with his magnetism, but I always thought Wendy was way too good for him.
Overall, I enjoyed Another Pan—even more so than Another Faust. I did think at times , however, that the book was trying to be too many different types of stories at once —the Egyptian mythology and Peter Pan tale never quite meshed up for me and this clashing of plot elements definitely made everything a little off kilter for me. I think the book should've either followed the Peter Pan storyline more consistently or forgone it all together for the Egyptian curse theme. Both were really great in their own way and would've been strong enough to carry an entire book.
BOTTOM LINE: Another Pan was an interesting melding of Egyptian curses, quest-based adventure and some pretty exciting sleuthing. As always, it will be interesting to see what the Nayeri's come up with next! ...more
Tempest Rising was an entertaining novel with memorable characters and an intoxicating mythology. Much like the hypnotic pull of the ocean was for Te Tempest Rising was an entertaining novel with memorable characters and an intoxicating mythology. Much like the hypnotic pull of the ocean was for Tempest, this book hooked me right away and reeled me into an exciting new world full of mermaids, magic and adventure.
Main protagonist Tempest Macguire was aware of her mermaid heritage from the start. I really appreciated the fact that the Tempest did not need to take half of the story to understand the changes happening to her. I usually find that frustrating to no end. So the fact that Tempest knew her mother was a mermaid and that at age seventeen she would be faced with much of the same decisions (both physical and emotional), well--that was a refreshing twist. Tempest's pain at having to choose between her little brothers ( vibrant young boys who really tug at your heartstrings) or the life calling to her from the deep blue sea was so appealing to me as a reader. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next.
Like many YA books, there was love triangle in this book. However, to my surprise, it was not overblown or swoony. Gasp! In fact, I thought it was done beautifully—so much so, that I was torn throughout almost the entire book as to who Tempest should pick: Mark or Kai. Even now, I'm still a bit unsure. Mark was Tempest's quiet strength- he loved her but he didn't really know her or understand her. Not like Kai, the boy with supernatural secrets and a dark appeal. Kai was mysterious, dangerous and a little unpredictable. He stirred up powerful feelings in Tempest she hadn't felt before and I looked forward to seeing him every time he came into the picture.
The book is set in a seaside community and was well-written with great attention to detail. I felt like I was there with Tempest and her gang of guys, riding the waves with the wind against my face and the electric pull of the tides. There are also underwater scenes with battles, romantic interludes and an introduction into a world were mermaids, mermen and other creatures all intermingle. If I had to choose, I'd say the parts 'on land' were actually more special to me than those 'under-the-sea'. Tempest's interactions with the people who cared about her were what kept my heart pounding the most. Sometimes the underwater fantastical elements (the sea witch, the vampiric octopus monster, etc) skewed the book a little younger than I would generally prefer. I was also a little disappointed in how things tied up with Tempest's mother at the end. Most of the book built up to the big "showdown" between the absentee mermaid mom and Tempest. But when it actually happened, it wasn't what I had anticipated or really wanted. However none of these things really hindered my enjoyment of the book—they are just my own personal reading preferences. I would highly recommend Tempest Rising for its fresh take on mermaid mythology and it's unique approach to storytelling. The romance was never over-the-top or annoyingly saccharine. Bottom line: It all worked for me. I'd love to dive back into Tempest's world anytime...more
The Vampire Stalker exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. The premise, the characterization and the world building all came together for me inThe Vampire Stalker exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. The premise, the characterization and the world building all came together for me in a delicious concoction that I devoured in a single evening. Allison van Diepen impressed me with how cleverly she constructed main protagonist Amy’s personality. She was a girl that could easily be any of us—she had normal features, a normal name, normal life, etc. I adored how she kept her head in this book—she was logical, confident and loyal to the people she cared about. She was the type of girl we'd all want to be or have for a best friend. I think that crafting Amy's character as someone all women can identify with was a smart move. For with a book like this, part of the fun is putting yourself in Amy's shoes and wondering "what would I do if so-and-so came to life?!" I'm a huge vampire junkie so this was such a treat. But even if you're not into vampires, chances are there's been a special book you've imagined certain characters coming to life at some time or other. (Barrons from Karen Marie Moning's Fever Series immediately comes to mind) But I think you don't have to be a huge vampire fan to enjoy The Vampire Stalker. It's so well-written with a thoughtful, entertaining story line and strong, likable characters that I think it will appeal to a wide variety of readers.
My hope is that Allison van Diepen will allow us to return to Alexander’s world. The entire time I was reading the The Vampire Stalker, I was itching to cross over into "Otherworld" and get a taste for what life was really like there. (Otherworld is both the name of a fictional vampire series that main character Amy is obsessed with and also it's a parallel world similar to ours). I loved this concept- the way it was explained made so much sense too- simple but full of possibilities. Let's just say that if Otherworld was a real series out on the market right now, I would wait in line for the next installment just like Amy and her friends did! There’s so much that could be done if the author did another book from that angle—a potential back story with Alexander and James as children in Otherworld or even something with the sinister Vigo would be fantastic. Whatever it is—I'm most enthusiastically interested in reading it.
It’s very rare that I close a book and am tempted to flip it back open to page one and read again, but I can honestly tell you that’s how I felt about this one. I didn't want to leave The Vampire Stalker. It was pure entertainment through and through—a great escape on a gloomy Sunday afternoon. I hope Allison van Diepen is able to continue this series. She definitely got my attention with this one! ...more
Night School, the 5th installment in the Blood Coven series by Mari Mancusi, was a heck of a lot of fun! There's neveVampires, slayers, fairies—OH MY!
Night School, the 5th installment in the Blood Coven series by Mari Mancusi, was a heck of a lot of fun! There's never a dull moment in The Blood Coven series and Night School was no exception.
The Long Version:
After the twins find out about their shocking fairy heritage and the danger it poses to their safety, their parents ship them off to a vampire slayer boarding school to lay low. But as the girls soon learn, Riverdale is not the safest of places and it seems as if they are in worse danger than ever before. If they don't figure out a plan- and quickly- they might never leave at all.
The always amusing, clever Rayne is the narrator of Night School. And let me just say, Rayne is the reason I keep coming back to the series. This is a zany character who has undergone more transformations than you'd think possible (even for a paranormal book), yet she does it with such wit, likability and dark humor, that it all seems to make sense. I adore Rayne's twin sister Sunshine, but my favorite books are the ones told from Rayne's point of view. With her tongue-in-cheek distinct brand of sass, Rayne always elevates this series up a notch with her constant misadventures. While on the young side of the vampire YA spectrum, I do enjoy these books and look forward to each installment. At times, Rayne reminds me of a goth Buffy the Vampire Slayer (if Buffy was also a vampire that is). As for Sunny—well Sunny is like the quintessential Barbie girl that has it all, except for an uncanny ability to get herself into the craziest situations that only Rayne can ever get her out of.
The only thing I have to note about Night School is that I found the romantic angle lacking—the scenes with Rayne and Jared felt rushed and somewhat forced to me. However, the twist with Corbin did turn my head in the right direction toward the end. I loved the precarious position Rayne was in at Riverdale with being unable to acquire any blood. What happened with her and Corbin was great—I loved his back-story too. Things took a dangerous turn at the end and I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book.
The Blood Coven series is a light-hearted, Young Adult vampire series that will appeal to young readers or those who prefer their vampire books to be served up less on the bloody side. So if you are looking for a dark vampire series with tortured souls, mature romantic situations and gory details, this is probably not the vampire series for you. I think of it more as "Blood Lite" or "Vamp Candy". I would rate them as being skewed to older of a crowd than Ellen Schrieber's Vampire Kisses, but younger than P.C. and Kristin Cast's House of Night series if that helps.
It's always a riot to revisit with Sunny and Rayne- I'm interested in what crazy direction their lives with take next with Blood Ties, scheduled to release in August 2011.
So often in the paranormal romance genre, we have a situation where the vampire must fight against all his/her natural instincts not to bite a human,So often in the paranormal romance genre, we have a situation where the vampire must fight against all his/her natural instincts not to bite a human, because of guilt, attraction, etc etc. But what if instead of the human always being the weakest link, this time around it's the vampire running the risk of poisoning themselves from feeding on a human? Intriguing idea, right? This was the concept behind NIGHTSHADE. In her latest adult novel, Michelle Rowen delves into a darker brand of urban fantasy while still maintaining strong romantic appeal (and that trademark brand of humor she's known for). Mix in this unique twist on vampire lore and you've got yourself a winner!
NIGHTSHADE starts off fast and furious and keeps on rolling. It's break-time at work, and Jillian Conrad needs her morning coffee fix. But on her way back to the elevators, her life as she knew it—the normal, get up and go to work hum-drum routine we all grapple with—ends forever. She's at the wrong place at the wrong time. Caught in the middle of a stand-off with a gunman and a frantic scientist, Jillian is poisoned with a serum that makes vampires lose their senses with desire for her blood. Wait! Vampires are real? Yep. Sorry Jillian, they sure are. As Jillian's normal world comes crashing down all around her, she realizes in the blink of an eye she has become a crucial pawn in the struggle between humans and vampires alike.
NIGHTSHADE was a fun, sexy and humorous vampire urban fantasy. I read it over a 24-hour period and immediately wanted the next book in the series to tear into. I do have to admit that initially I wasn't too sure about Declan with his unsightly eye-patch, scars and cold personality. But just like he did with Jillian- he definitely grew on me. I became vested in their relationship and anxiously wanted them to realize their mutual attraction to one another, and better yet—act on it. It happened when I saw how Declan's personality changed when he didn't take a certain serum –the one that supposedly kept his half-vampire blood thirsty impulses at bay (he reminded me a bit of the movie Blade in that aspect too). One thing that threw me a bit were Rowen's characterization of the djamphirs—they honestly gave me the heebeejeebees—I kept wishing they were more like sexy apple-pie smelling Christophers from Lili St. Crow's books rather than gory monster freak shows, but they needed to be what they were to fit the storyline, so it made sense that she did what she did with them.
Poor Jillian—what a catch 22! If Declan was on the serum, she knew it was safer to be around him. If he wasn't? Well things just got a whole lot hotter in the room—but also a whole lot more deadly. As for Jillian, I loved her character. She was such a great contrast to Declan. While he was etched in stone, she was approachable and downright lovable. It was also refreshing to read an adult book where the main protagonist didn't have to kick butt in order to kick butt. Jillian was no trained warrior by any means, but she was smart, kind-hearted and played the hand dealt to her so well that it ended up saving her life.
NIGHTSHADE slams to a halt with a twist that really sets an exciting tone for the next book in the series. It was one I did not see coming and can't wait to see how it all plays out. I would recommend this book to fans of adult paranormal romance as well as more mature teen readers. ...more
A Need So Beautiful stormed into my life with both guns blazing and immediately captured my heart. Normally when I sit down to read, so many things caA Need So Beautiful stormed into my life with both guns blazing and immediately captured my heart. Normally when I sit down to read, so many things can easily distract me- cell phone, email- you name it. Not this time. I read this book entirely in one sitting. When was the last time you read a book in one sitting from start to finish? Let me tell you, that is not a normal occurrence for me. But right from page one, A Need So Beautiful captured my interest and I relished every minute of it!
I loved how Suzanne Young took the angelic element, and reworked it into something entirely her own. I have never read a book where the main protagonist has an overwhelming “Need” to help people and then was faced with the fact that everyone would soon forget her as she slowly and painfully disappeared from their memories. This was so fresh and exciting to me. Also, I can't express enough how much I appreciated that Young did not resort to the standard “we lock eyes and now we’re instantly in love” routine so prevalent throughout the YA genre today. Charlotte was already in a committed relationship with the dreamy Harlin as the book began—I loved this departure from the norm. Why can't we see more of this in YA? As for Harlin himself, he was definitely my kind of guy. A dangerous looking bad boy on the outside but with a heart of gold on the inside. But the best part? He didn’t just serve in the book to be the token boyfriend—he was an important plot driver and his relationship with Charlotte only deepened my affection for both of their characters. I also thought Suzanne Young transitioned beautifully between moments of pain and pleasure. I never felt bogged down by the emotional burden of Charlotte’s situation and I always felt connected with all the people in Charlotte's life. From troubled best friend Sarah, to Mercy, Charlotte's good-hearted foster mother, each character was unique and memorable. All were important to the story and Charlotte’s bonds with the people in her life only strengthened my connection to her and the choices she was being forced to make.
A Need So Beautiful was a book with a beautiful premise and thought-provoking questions. If you are expecting your run-of-the-mill paranormal romance, do not be mistaken. This is not your typical YA book. Charlotte was no socially awkward, passive teenage girl waiting for a super hot supernatural boy to burst into her life and give it meaning. Her character was built instead with an inner strength that evolved as she was pushed further and further to her limits. To sum up, A Need So Beautiful was a contemporary, unique novel, both engaging and entertaining with its strong, sympathetic female protagonist and lingering questions of self-sacrifice, love and the power of memories. I absolutely can’t wait for the sequel....more

Die for Me was a book with a creative premise and suspenseful storyline in an exotic setting. I loved the description of the book (and jaw-dropping cover too). The synopsis revolving around a grief-stricken 16-year old girl who moves to Paris and meets Vincent, a boy with a few supernatural secrets of his own intrigued me right from the start. Having been to Paris not too long ago myself, I looked forward being whisked back to a place within which I have so many happy memories. Upon reading Die For Me, it was obvious that the author Amy Plumb also has a great affection for the city herself. The way she captured all the things which make Paris uniquely beautiful—the historical landmarks, the bustling cafes, the inspiring art of museums like the Louvre and the draw-dropping architecture of the city itself—it was all described perfectly, reminding me of a painter's artful brush across a canvas. For me, Paris was the real draw of the book. I think if Die For Me had taken place in any other city the book wouldn't have come together with as much allure and drama as it did. But when you mix in this romantic, mysterious city, the story takes on a whole new trajectory and life of its own. After all, who hasn't dreamed about moving to Paris and falling in love?
I thought Amy Plumb's new brand of supernatural creature entitled "the Revenants" was unique and plausible. This is a novel where the supernatural world shimmers below the surface but doesn't saturate the story. I appreciated the fact that it was all realistic and never too "over-the-top" which when done poorly, can make a novel seem almost ridiculous. There's a very tricky line a writer must draw when deciding how much magic to incorporate into a story. I thought Plumb did a fantastic job creating her new brand of supernatural. However, I have to admit that once I uncovered some core secrets regarding the Revenants, I couldn't help but feel a little disappointed. I know not all of them were good, but I also wanted Vincent and his friends to be a little less "good" if you catch my drift—more of a dangerous sort of fallen angel than what they actually turned out to be. C'est la vie!
I also thought Kate fell in love with Vincent rather quickly. I have to say I've been there and done that so many times to really get swept away in YA romances anymore- but I know a lot of readers will appreciate the romantic aspect of their relationship and not be bothered by the quick progression of it. I did appreciate the construction of the other characters, particularly the minor ones like Kate's sister Georgia, their grandparents and the colorful members of Vincent's ragtag Revenants gang. I thought that Amy Plumb brought them all to life with great attention to detail- so much in fact, that I enjoyed their respective side stories more than the actual romance between Kate and Vincent themselves! All the characters felt extremely real to me and I could envision each one's appearance and personality to the letter.
While I didn’t devour and fall in love with Die For Me the way I thought I would, I will say it's a series with a lot of potential. One with a creative mythology, breathtaking setting and well developed characters- I look forward to seeing what lies ahead in Kate's future....more

Diary of Jane Taylor:
"When I think of death, I don't see what everyone else does. There's a soft whisper when you find it, and a voice telling us that it'll be okay.
We never die alone, because they are always there watching over us, protecting us, and guiding us. They are silent, like a simple gust of wind; but it is in this wind that our world can change. Knight Angels: Book Of Love (Book One)Mine did."
"I froze and looked up at him. His hand was warm, his fingers resting over my own. I swallowed, the immediate connection to his thoughts too personal. I pulled my hand out from under his. Wes was frightened and I could also see it in his eyes. I searched his face, my body screaming to be near him but I know it wasn't right. He loved Jane, but inside his thoughts, it wasn't Jane he had been thinking of; it was me." –Page 108
Love. Angels. Betrayal. KNIGHT ANGELS: BOOK OF LOVE had everything I wanted and oh-so-much- more. Abra Ebner skillfully entwines romance, action and mystery into a delicious reading experience. With strong writing and skillfully orchestrated multiple character point-of-views, this standout novel completely blindsided me. To be honest, I was initially leery about diving in because I knew it was self-published. But after reading it, I have to wonder—Why wasn't this snatched up by a major publishing house? Despite a few typos here and there, this is a skilled, professionally written novel deserving attention —and yes, I would include it in the same category as the wildly popular HUSH-HUSH by Becca Fitzpatrick. While completely different stories, I enjoyed this novel just as much!
It takes a skilled writer to alternate between multiple viewpoints. A lot of writers struggle with just two. Abra Ebner balances four character mindsets and completely pull it off. I will say that initially I was worried I'd get confused, but I did catch on almost immediately. However, I think Ebner would've been better off not getting inside the head of Sarah & Eric as they were minor characters. But I'm glad she did alternate between the character viewpoints though. I was able to connect with each of them so much more, and to understand their true motivations, fears and deepest secrets so much better.
The writing was vivid and flowed easily. It was emotional yet also entertaining. Honestly, I could not put it down. Emily, the misunderstood sister with the drug problem wasn't as selfish and destructive as her sister Jane perceived her to be. Jane wasn't as self-important and gloomy when she interacted with Max, a boy with a strong otherworldly connection to Jane. Max came into Jane's life at the perfect time though his presence definitely attracted danger in the form of brother Greg, someone who definitely enjoyed leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. But Max's presence in Jane's life really saved her; she was so lost and morose before he came along. He breathed new life and a renewed sense of hope into Jane's personality. Through Max, I found myself becoming more vested in Jane's character and grew to care for her so much more. Wes, the next door neighbor coming into a major supernatural awakening fascinated me as well. But I have to say, it was Greg—the most dangerous of the lot that truly captured my attention. Isn't that always the way? I never quite knew what he would do next, and the tension he brought to the book whipped things up to a fevered pitch until I literally couldn't put it down until I found out how it would play out.
KNIGHT ANGEL: BOOK OF LOVE is the first installment in a thrilling new series where supernatural forces beyond our comprehension battle for human souls. Some will fall, others will prevail. With a fresh take on issues of death, love and destiny, the book was a paranormal roller coaster ride of intense emotion and an addictive premise. Trust me you won't be able to put it down. ...more
