She don't know her parents and she's working as a journalist for Caldwell's paper, bored and dreaming for adventure. They say be careful what you wish for, and in Beth's case it turned out to be true. When an immense dark man made his way into her life, claiming to know her father, life as she always known it is about to change drastically, for better or for worst?
It took me quite a while, and a lot of pressure from my pairs, to finally pick up that series because those romance-y covers just didn't make it for me. Yes, yes I am evil judging book by their covers, I know it. But I was really scared this would be filled with sex scenes and in that department, I appreciate moderation. And I would like to thank everyone who pushed me to read the series, because I was NOT disappointed.
I loved the dangerous yet easy-going (most of the time) relation between the brothers. The strong alpha male vibes emanating from them all, but especially from Wrath. I loved Beth's attitude, her fears but her strong character made her real. She might look like a runway model, but she could stand up for herself and I liked that.
I found my favorite moments of the book were when Wrath and Beth were together, and I was nicely surprised that even though there are quite a couple sex scenes they blend in perfectly and didn't slow down the plot.
I really liked how Wrath wanted Beth, yet he didn't think he was good enough for her and wanted to push her away, but he just couldn't bring himself to do it. I really loved a specific scene when one of the brothers was hurt and Beth stepped in to help, Wrath's reaction was priceless.
I liked every single one of the brothers, ok maybe not Zsadist so much, but I can feel there is something more to him than eyes can see, and I can't wait to find out more about him. They each have their own curse, but they are fighting together for their own race. They are strong, fierce, dedicated but they are also vulnerable and I appreciate that.
The idea of lessers, soulless humans hunting the vampires was colorful and original. I enjoyed hating them and I hope the Brotherhood gets the best out of them.
Overall this is a great adult series, if you haven't started this series yet, don't make the mistake I did by waiting any longer before reading it. It's a great world with a perfect balance of darkness and love. Original, fast-paced, action-packed, with the right touch of humor. Speaking of which, here's a quote for you. It's the very last sentences of the book, but fear not, not spoilers in it!

Teenage hood as we know it is already hard enough, what if they could all see ghost on top of it? That’s what every kid born after the winter solsticeTeenage hood as we know it is already hard enough, what if they could all see ghost on top of it? That’s what every kid born after the winter solstice of 1994 have to deal with. Born that way, kids learn to cope with, but this new reality becomes a whole new challenge when Aura’s boyfriend, Logan, dies from a heart faillure his birthday party. Loosing a loved one is already a painful experience, but add the fact that you can still see him, but not touch him? Kiss him? It’s down right cruel. How will Aura live with the not-so-death of her boyfriend? To spice up things a little (yeah it needed even more spice *winks*), Zachary entered Aura’s life with his good looks and he to-die-for accent, he might have answers she has been seeking for and he might even bring more to the table…
Shade is one very original ghost story. In this world, kids and teens can see ghosts, those purple reflection of deceased people. You can’t see them in the light, but they are there. They are afraid of the color red (guest what’s to HOT color this season? or lifetime?) and obsidian. But ghost aren’t the worst “things” out there. Shades are. Angry ghosts, soulless, able to go anywhere at anytime and there presence make all post-Shifters physically sick.
I really loved this completely different world Jeri built for us. It leaves room for great originality and the lore is amazing. Unfortunately we don’t get all the answers in this book, and I am looking forward to learn about the big Why. Why did the Shift happen? Why can children now see ghost? Why some of them turn Shade? Why do they fear red? Why?
I also loved Shade’s characters. Colorful, unique and so representative of teenage hood. Uncertainties, pears pressure, grief but also parties, friendship, sex, love. Jeri managed to blend in all those real emotions in her fictional world and make it work perfectly. How do you move on when the love of your life dies? I really felt for Aura, she was crushed by her boyfriend’s death, pear fingers pointing at her, accusing her, spreading rumors. Her devastation was skillfully painted. Logan was really special, future rock-star, full of life (well at the beginning at least), and such a Diva. Even death couldn’t kill his love of the crowd, he wanted one last standing ovation. Zachary supported Aura the entire book, giving her his support but also space when she needed it, he was a perfect gentleman.
I would like to share a little excerpt with you guys, it’s not spoiler-y so fear not!
"A hole opened up inside me, so raw I had to curl up on my side away from his light, pulling my good knee to my chest to ease the ache. The hole gaped so big it seemed like I could crawl inside, let the darkness swallow all thoughts of the future that once stretched before us. We had lost forever."
This quote, and the moments before it really touched me, Jeri really has a talent to put raw emotions into words, it’s amazing.
The end was also quite intense, I really can’t wait for the second book!
All in all, this book is a great YA debut for the author. Great lore, fantastic characters and an insane talent with words, Paranormal YA lovers should definitely pick-up this book!
Lily has been living on land for only three years now, the some of which she spent fantasying over Brody: swimmer, cool, sexy, and oh-so-popular BrodyLily has been living on land for only three years now, the some of which she spent fantasying over Brody: swimmer, cool, sexy, and oh-so-popular Brody. If you ignore the huge fact that she’s half mermaid, Lily has never stood out in a crowd, unless it’s been to humiliate herself. She’s got freezy blond hair, freckles and some serious self-esteem issues. When she finally decides to ask Brody to go to the dance with her (after much fuss), all hell break loose and her nemesis, Quince steps in to “help her”. Desperate enough to trust him, she dives in with his crazy plans and a kiss will change her fate forever.
Forgive my Fins is a really cute story! Lily is convinced Brody is the (mer)man of her life and she dives head first trying to confess him her feelings. But nothing is simple and she will end up on a rollercoaster of emotions with Quince as co-pilot. Her journey will bring her to realize not everything is what it seems and she might have to reconsider a future she thought was set in stone.
Tera Lynn created a fantastic, magical world you will completely fall for. The entire book she uses those cute-as-pie mer-like expressions with fish and sea plants names (that I honestly have no idea what they look like lol) and Thalassinia really looks like it’s out of a fairy tale. I could perfectly picture a Little Mermaid like castle at the bottom of the sea.
I loved her mermaid lore. They can transfigure to human legs to walk on land, and when they cry in the sea there is no actual tears, but their eyes sparkles the same color as their fins. Also when a mermaid kiss a boy it’s create a permanent magical bond between them that links their emotions together. Only the King of Thalassinia can revoke it, under extreme circumstances.
I really liked the characters, Lily is so oblivious to what really goes on around her that it made feel like knocking my head on a wall, but it gave her a special cute innocence at the same time. Brody on his par is viewed as a God by Lily, but he’s kind of your average jock. Athlete, hanging with the cheerleaders, but he is nice to Lily in a friendly manner, so brownie points for him. Quince was hands down my favorite character. He puts out a rough-and-tough act, wears leather and biker boots, drives a motorcycle, and teases Lily all the time, but when there’s trouble around the corner he is always there for her. From chapter one I fell in love with him and I just knew the guy had more to offer than his annoying act.
The end was some-what predictable, but there were twists to the story I never saw coming.
Overall, Forgive my Fins is a very cute fairy tale-like story I would recommend it to YA lovers. It’s a light, fun and unpretentious book the young and not-so-young readers will appreciate, and I am definitely adding the second book, Fins Are Forever, to my wish list!
Madison is now the official Dark Timekeeper, but the rules already set in stone don’t quite cut it for her and she is determined to change things. WhiMadison is now the official Dark Timekeeper, but the rules already set in stone don’t quite cut it for her and she is determined to change things. While still trying to find her body, she will work with Barnabas, former Light reaper and Nakita Dark reaper to try change the fate of those meant to do terrible things, and save their lives – and souls – in the process. Impossible task made even harder by Paul, rising Light Timekeeper, and his mentor Ron who are mind-set to ruin Madison’s attempts.
I really liked the second book in this series. Madison is trying to learn her new timekeeper role along with the abilities that comes with it. She will do some faux pas, but she is strongly determined and won’t let a little – ok HUGE – trouble get in the way. Nakita is so lovely. She is trying so hard to fit-in and understand Madison’s reasons to try and prevent scythe. She can’t quite grasp what’s going on but she really wants to help Madison. She is also constantly fighting with Barnabas, which is quite funny. Paul might also because an interesting character, so I can’t wait to see what’s gonna happen next with him.
While I liked the plot and how it wrapped-up, I found myself craving for more. Early to Death, Early to Rise is only 228 pages long, which is quite short. I was hoping to see Madison master more skills, but the entire book happens in like 24hours, so it doesn’t leave much room for that much progress. I was also sad to not see Josh in the story. He appeared in only two scenes and I really wanted to see some romance between Josh and Madison.
The bright side is there is still one more book planned in this series, so maybe my hopes will come true in the next book.
The lore of this series is quite amazing and original, so if you haven’t started it yet, I strongly suggest you start with Once Dead, Twice Shy. Harrison’s jump from adult novels to young adult ones was a success, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed! ...more
The Black Dagger Brotherhood is a group of six very powerful warriors, respected and feared by civilian vampires: their role is to protect them. But oThe Black Dagger Brotherhood is a group of six very powerful warriors, respected and feared by civilian vampires: their role is to protect them. But one of them drastically stands out. Even his brothers fears him: Zsadist. After centuries of slavery and abuse, the male is damaged. Pain is his deliverance. Starving himself of both food and blood, scarred with soulless eyes he is a tremendous fighter because he has nothing to fear. What are you scared of when you’ve been to hell and back? But maybe, just maybe, he has a chance for redemption. He feels an inexplicable attraction for Bella, a civilian female who’s been kidnapped by lessers. He saved her, but can she save him from himself?
This review will be challenging to write because I LOVED this book so much I’m not sure my words can really capture the way I feel about it. Since the first book in the series, Dark Lover, I was anxious to discover more about Zsadist because I had a feeling his story would be interesting. Boy did Ward deliver! Lover awakened was dark, intense, stressful, passionate and oh so amazing! It took me over a week to read it because it was too good. Say what? It was so high in emotions I ended up putting the book down many times because I couldn’t handle it anymore lol I wanted to know what would happen next, yet I was so scared I couldn’t keep on reading. Call me crazy, but that’s how I felt hehe
I LOVED to finally discover the man this harsh exterior hid and glad we finally got to know his story. He had a gruesome past, no wonders he can’t handle emotional and physical contact. He was used in the worst way and left scarred (both literally and metaphorically) for life. Bella eventually becomes his reason to breath, but he feels unworthy of her and keeps pushing her away. Their relation is amazing and heart-shattering. Ward couldn’t possibly have told a better story. Consuming, overwhelming, their love for each other tore ‘em apart. Attracting yet repulsing each other like magnets, the whole story was a rollercoaster of emotions.
Zsadist & Bella’s isn’t the only tragic story though. Ward will kill a handful of characters in this book and I felt the lost right along with the survivors. I grieved for those characters and I was fond of them, one especially, and I wanted to throw my book away when she killed him/her. I also feel a lot of affection for the young John, and I really hope we’ll get to see him after his transition. His true identity was revealed in this book, but with everything going on, we didn’t get to see the consequences.
I won’t talk about the ending because I don’t want to give anything away, but let me tell you this: Right after finishing the book, I wanted to read it all over again. That’s just how good this book is. If you haven’t started the Black Dagger Brotherhood series yet, please do yourself a favor and by them. All of them, because one you finish one, you’ll want to read the next one right away. Trust me....more
Lover Eternal is the second book is the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and I think I liked it even better than the first one. This second installmenLover Eternal is the second book is the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and I think I liked it even better than the first one. This second installment features Rhage, one of the brother who is cursed and as to rely on sex and fights to keep The Beast (yes literally) from coming out and Mary a human girl who’s got cancer. I can see the gears in your head, you’re thinking with an introduction like that it must be cheesy, well it’s not! There are multiple plot lines going on, but I’ll try to resume as best as I can without spoiling anything. Mary is a simple girl, volunteering in a suicide phone line and that’s how she meets John, a young mute vampire who doesn’t know what he is. She also happens to befriend Bella, who’s also a vampire and recognizes John right away. That’s how Mary finds herself mixed up with the Brotherhood in the first place, and how Rhage got nuts for her. There’s something about her that speaks to Rhage’s soul but his perusing her puts her in danger from Lessers: the spark that will start their rollercoaster ride relationship.
I just really loved the interaction between the main characters. Mary might be sick, but she has a warrior spirit and her mind is set to fight, plus she’s not impressed by the six and a half feet tall piece of a man Rhage is. She confronts him, and the beast, heads up. Rhage is not only incredibly sultry, he is also multi-layered and the perception you have of him after the first book is completely crushed in Lover Eternal. Their relationship goes through many phases and I’ll admit it, I shed a few tears near the end!
One of the other characters to grab my intention was Zsadist, he is dark, dangerous, out of control and has his twin puts it, he is ruined. His interactions with Bella though leads me to believe there is much more to discover about this broken man, and I can’t wait to learn more about him.
The conclusion of this book took very surprising twist promising some very interesting plot lines for the next book in the series.
If you haven’t discovered The Black Dagger Brotherhood series yet, and you love Paranormal Romance, then you must get your hands on that series. It’s dark, sexy, sultry yet not overloaded with sex. Just the right amount of action, passion and carnal pleasure to get you addicted and craving for more!
Phury, Zhadist’s twin brother, as spent his whole life trying to fix what’s broken. Starting with his twin brother being kidnaped, his less than stellPhury, Zhadist’s twin brother, as spent his whole life trying to fix what’s broken. Starting with his twin brother being kidnaped, his less than stellar parents, his job in the Brotherhood and his latest hit, sacrificing himself so Vishous could skip out of being the Primale of the race. It all looks very glorious from outside, but on the inside, not so much. How will Phury handle the mess he has gotten himself into?
I actually find it hard to write this review because I have really mixed feelings about this sixth installment in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I love the series, I love the progression in the story this book provided, but I didn’t really enjoy Phury’s story. Let me explain why.
I used to like Phury, he seemed all knight-like in his black leather battle gear, always ready to take a bullet for his Brother or the race, he also sacrificed so much for his twin. On a quick glance, he looks like an overall pretty awesome guy, even though he loves his red smoke. The thing is… it’s all smoke and mirrors. The guy underneath is an empty shell, scarred, half-insane and a low level drug addict. His addiction was really too heavy and too all-encompassing for my enjoyment and while I’m sure it’s pretty similar to what an actual addict lives, it was too much for me. His string of bad decision after bad decision really annoyed me and even when things kind of picks up eventually, well it was too little too late, I had already given up on the guy.
Now that it’s out of the way, there are multiple things I really enjoyed. There is a whole subplot about John Matthew and his two buddies and I loved watching them evolve. They all grow extremely fast due to dire circumstances and it was a pleasure to witness. I truly can’t wait to see more of those three musketeer in the following books. There was a very interesting twist in the ultimate battle between Vampires and Lessers and even though we only see the peek of the iceberg, what’s to come promises to be entertaining! We also get some news of a lost Brother *wiggle eyebrows* which pleased me to no end!
Cormia was a very positive aspect of this book. She is innocent and naive , but she’s not stupid. Her shyness bothered me at first, but once she starts getting out of her shell things gets interesting. We also get a great insight on who Rehvenge really is, along side with Xhex & Trez, and I was happily surprised with what I found out. I wasn’t particularly fond of him before, but I think he has great potential.
When I finished reading the previous book in the series, I was really excited to see how Phury would deal with being the Primale and I ended up being very disappointed in him. I was hoping for excitement, and truthfully it was quite sparse for this aspect of the book. The conclusion somewhat redeemed him, but not quite completely. I’m curious of the consequences his decisions will have onto the world though.
Overall, it wasn’t a bad novel because multiple aspect were great, but Phury definitely stole Butch’s title of least-favorite-of-mine. Which Brother is your least favorite? ...more

Attending high school, hanging out with friends, Movie Nights on Friday, worrying about her birthday party. Her life has been somewhat hectic with her parents fighting all the time, grades slipping at school, and her recurring nightmares, but hey, nobody’s life is perfect right? Everything changes though when she meets Will. Gorgeous and Mysterious, the sight of him makes her very core vibrate. She’s never seen him before, yet she feels she known him for century. Will will change her life, awaken powers in her she didn’t know excited, but unfortunately, monsters from her nightmares also ended up being memories from her past. She must now fight for her life, her soul, and the whole humanity.
I LOVED Angelfire, Allison Courtney Moulton’s debut novel, from the very first page to the very last sentence. This novel was full of adventure, suspense, passion, love and mysteries. There are so many great aspect to this book that I honestly don’t know where to start hehe. Allison’s writing was smooth and compelling, the pace of the story was just perfect and the lore was enchanting!
Angelfire’s Lore is mostly based on religious beliefs, with some very original twist. The novel is pretty much an Epic Battle between Heaven and Hell, and Ellie is trying to prevent the Apocalypse. It sounds heavy right? But it’s not. The Lore was explained to us slowly and carefully, which was great, because it easily could’ve been overwhelming. To try and make a long story short, Ellie is an ancient warrior, a soul reincarnating everything she dies fighting evil creatures called Reapers, with the ultimate goal of stopping Lucifer’s attempt at raising an army to start The End Days. Will, a couple of hundred years old Hottie, is her Guardian, he swore to protect her with his life, like many before him did. But you will discover that there is more to their relation than this bodyguard duty.
Both main characters were simply amazing. I loved how Will is ambivalent in his actions, sometimes hard and cold, other times sweet and charming. You just know he cares for Ellie, and you witness his internal struggles. He is always there to support her, would do literally anything for her, yet you feel he is holding back, and you don’t really know why. He was an amazing mystery to uncover! The best aspect about Ellie, was that Allison painted her in a realistic way. She might be an ancient warrior, but because of a weird amnesia, she doesn’t know who she really is, and only have glimpses of memories every now and then. I enjoyed seeing her battling with her new powers, trying to keep a normal life, and try to figure out Will all at same time. Her fears and her failures made her believable. I appreciated that she struggled to get hold of her powers and that she didn’t suddenly become all powerful. She had to work hard to make it work, and even in the end, she doesn’t take anything for granted.
The romance was a delight really. Both characters unsure of their feelings, awkward in their actions, yet so in sync. I loved seeing flashbacks of their relationship in Ellie’s past lives, and see its evolution in her current life. Everything will come together in the end, and even though I enjoyed it, I was taken aback from the conclusion.
The end was truly fantastic, violence and emotions were running high and the whole thing was bitter sweet, which is something I highly respect! Ending shouldn’t always be sugarcoated hehe.
Angelfire is a delighting debut from Courtney Allison Moulton. Epic and soul-shattering, her story has everything it takes to take your breath away, and keeps you begging for more!
My Favorite Quote (please keep in mind this is from the ARC and might change in the finished version:
"I turned my face into his, desperate to meet his eyes, and when I did, centuries’ worth of memories of his face flashed across my mind, and of everything he had sacrificed for me, of all his blood that had been shed, of all the torment he had endured for me. His expression was stoic, so hardened, but his eyes told me everything. They always gave him away."...more
Shiarra is a PI in a quite different world. After the 9/11 events, Vampires, Mages and Werewolves came out of the closet and new laws were written, prShiarra is a PI in a quite different world. After the 9/11 events, Vampires, Mages and Werewolves came out of the closet and new laws were written, protecting both parties. Humans can’t take actions against the Others without a warrant or they will have to face consequences. Also, any Other getting intimate with a human is legislated and they must sign a contract stipulating the Other can do w/e they want to the human without any legal backlash. Shiarra’s ex is a werewolf and didn’t respect the laws, she found out his true identity when he shifted in the middle of her living room. She kicked him out and stayed away from Others until a powerful mage dangled a nice amount of money in front of her nose for her PI services. She doesn’t know yet but she just enrolled for the ride of her life.
I really liked this book, it was a blur of emotions, action, magic and danger. The world was well built and I followed the twist and turns of the plot without ever suspecting who was “the bad guy” in the story. Most characters are in shades of gray and it made the story that much more interesting.
I loved every single characters in this book. Shiarra is the girl next door, with her fears, insecurities and money problems but when her loved ones are threatened she steps-up to the game and accomplishes the impossible. Sara, Shiarra’s best friend, is smart and dedicated, she jumps on Shia’s crazy-wagon without looking back. Arnold (a mage) is a very interesting character. Resourceful and geeky but also charming, he will help Shia the best he can but he also has ulterior motives. Royce (a vamp) is seductive and oh so dangerous. He wants something from Shia but we don’t really know what and he really surprised me. Chaz really got to me, he is a sweet-heart in a brute’s body, or should I say a werewolf’s pelt. He is unpredictable but so loveable.
Haines wrapped-up her story perfectly and I am really curious of the next book. I can’t wait to put my hands on it!
Overall, Hunted by the Others is a fantastic action-packed story in a rather original world. It’s a great debut for Haines and my only wish for the next book is to get a bit more romance blended in the mix. Definitely worth buying! ...more
After saving her father from death, Nikki gets to return to her almost-normal-life in Ontario, Canada. Peace won’t last more than a week end though, bAfter saving her father from death, Nikki gets to return to her almost-normal-life in Ontario, Canada. Peace won’t last more than a week end though, because Rhys, the faery king, enrolled in her high school to study the possibility of Nikki being a treat to his people. Everyone, demons and faeries alike are determined to shed the light on a prophecy saying Nikki will destroy them all, or end the princess’ life to prevent it.
I’ll start by saying that if you liked the first book, you will also like Reign Check. The tone of the story is as light as the first one, and you also get a fair share of teenage romance. I have to say that some themed addressed in this round were potentially more profound (death, laws, consequences), yet the story felt one-dimensional. If I had one critique for that book, I would’ve asked for more depth, but maybe it’s because I’m an adult reading a YA story.
That being said, I like that Nikki is trying to take in stride whatever is thrown at her, but she don’t always succeed and sometimes gets her foot in her mouth. It made her more real, and her insecurities sure added to that. Michael (Nikki’s servant/boyfriend) is as lovely as ever and I was happy to see him again. His forbidden relation with the Demon Princess is quite adorable and we get to discover more about Shadows’ abilities. If there is a third book, I would love to get to know them more, along with faeries abilities because we don’t know much about them either. They can use swords, cast glamour but I’m sure there is more than that. I also became quite fond of Rhys in this book and was kinda sad because he pretty much disappeared in the last 120 pages or so, of the book.
I liked the end, but I find myself longing for more. The sum of the two first books happens in a two weeks period, which doesn’t leave room for much growth and I honestly want to know more about this compelling world.
Young adult lovers looking for a light tone cute story will be pleased with this series. ...more
After her aunt’s death, Tessa receives news from her brother with a ticket to London, to join him. Leaving New York and her old live behind, Tessa wilAfter her aunt’s death, Tessa receives news from her brother with a ticket to London, to join him. Leaving New York and her old live behind, Tessa will discover more than she ever thought possible when she reaches the old continent. Creatures only heard of in novels roams London nights, and after being kidnapped and tortured, Tess will realize she’s one of those creatures. On a quest to free her brother from trouble, she will ally with an eclectic bunch of teenagers and fight creatures no one had ever heard of.
Let me start by saying this book was A-MA-ZING. Cassandra Clare, how can you write such intense, engaging, addictive, and marvelous stories? One of the things that grabbed me in the book is her attention to details. We truly feel like we went back in time. The old London scenery, the vocabulary, proper ladies and gentlemen manners, candle light and horses & carriages: everything to bring you back to the 1800s.
If you haven’t read The Mortal Instruments series, fear not, you don’t need to read it first as the Clockwork Angel and a completely different story. If you’ve read TMI though, you will of course recognize elements for the series and will be happy to hear some familiar names: Herondale, Lightwood, Wayland. There’s also one character who appears in both series: Magnus Bane. Don’t you just love him? He isn’t one of the main characters, but it felt good to see him =) He still has that same free spirit, even thought he was less eccentric, and you will discover his alliance with shadowhunters is nothing new.
Speaking of characters, Cassie once again graced us with an amazing panel of actors. Theresa Gray aka Tessa (I actually find myself wondering if her family name is related to the Gray Book?), was an innocent young lady from New York at the beginning of the book and she will progress a great deal during this adventure, to become a cleaver and strong lady. She has so many questions without answers, regarding her true identity, her heart and her future, but she is determined to discover the truth. Will Herondale is a very mysterious character. He isn’t a proper gentleman, seems to hate everyone, he is clever and big-mouthed but it all seems to be a cover to a big secret. On the other hand, James Carstairs aka Jem, is a kind soul. He is elegant and giving but he also has a dark secret from the past. Jessamine is a shadowhunter in denial, all she dreams about is being a proper lady holding the house for a perfect gentleman, but she will rise up to the occasion in critical moments. All this not-so-merry gang of teenagers are under the care of Charlotte and Henry Branwell, head of the London Institute. Charlotte is loving and determinate while Henry is a dreamer. All the character seems to have somewhat of a darkness to them, and I really can’t wait to discover their secrets.
Clockwork Angel is action-packed, full of mysterious and the main plot takes twists you never expected. You quickly grow fond of it’s characters, but I honestly couldn’t tell which one is my favorite. I enjoyed this trip to the past into a world I already loved so much and the sequels can’t release soon enough. May you already be a Clare fan, or not initiated to this fabulous world yet, I strongly recommend you hurry and pre-order your copy. It’s a keeper!
