Ahhhhh! Where to start!?!?!

When I first purchased this book on my barnes and noble Nook, I was shocked to see that it was over five hundred pages long. I thought that it would take me forever to finish it, but boy was I wrong. I don't think I have ever read a book this fast! I finished this book in about five hours total. I blazed through this novel, turning pages frantically because I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I had to put the book down about halfway through in order to get

Amazing book!

My review: Wow what can i say but.... I LOVED IT! I was completely hooked right from the beginning it was so hard to put this book down you get so wrapped up in their world. Deena doesn't disappoint, her story takes you on an amazing journey full of good old fashion Good vs Evil in such a new and exciting way, Romance, passion, danger, action and plenty of gorgeous angel brethren to put your imagination into overdrive. What more can a girl ask for?!?! *winks*

WOW... so, this is one of those books that kept me up all night, the type where you have to literally tear yourself away from it so you can get some sleep. I even read while cooking a stir-fry at one point! LOl It's dark, it's sensual, it's gritty...its' fabulous! Love your angel paranormals? Try this!

I have to say that I was hooked from the very beginning. Deena give's you no warm up time in this book and I love it. From the very beginning you feel for Emma, a single mom who has absolutely no one and is afraid after a abusive marriage to allow anyone in her life. Her daughter Hannah is having horrible nightmares and neither of them has gotten a good night sleep in months. She finally realizes that she might need to talk to someone, so she decides to tell her coworker and principle of Hannah' ...more

What a fantastic read! There are so many things to love about this story; the beautiful setting, the plot line...the romance! What, or I should say, who, I loved most was our tiny heroine, Hannah. Before we even become aware that she's "magic", she graces us with a personality and charm so real, I fell instantly in love with her and the beautiful bond she has with her very loving and protective mother, Emma.
The lovefest doesn't end there. Michael and Emma are equally enthralling with their very

I was rather disappointed with this book.

It started off SO well, and then somewhere along the way the Author 'dropped the ball'.
The idea of the Trinity: A Protector, A Warrior Child, and A Great Healing Mother was really good, BUT I think what really bothered me the most about this book was the dialogue between the characters. From about the middle of the book to the end, I felt as if I was reading an essay. There just was no 'depth' to the characters.

Deena Remiel weaves an interesting tale revolving around the ultimate battle of good versus evil. In this novel, we are introduced to the three main characters, Emma, Hannah, and Michael; however, unlike most authors, Remiel does not give in depth histories of each person at the beginning of the story. Instead she opts to let the readers get to know her characters as the plot progresses which really builds suspense and seems to let the characters tell the story themselves. The mother, Emma has t ...more

I was hoping... No, it didn't get better...
My impresson is that it was written by a robot (and not a cognisant robot!!!).
There's no emotion.
The story is witten like this: heros have to defend the good from evel; they get together; they talk about strategy; the H meets h and the kiss and fall in bed; they fight evel; they win; the end. How sad not being able to make it better even with all that pages at disposal...

Hope is like an anchor, can a mother, and her daughter, and a angel over-come the evil determined to annihilate the world?

A well developed plot that will pique your attention from beginning to end. At over 500 pages long you wont feel like you are on a marathon but will be left wanting more !!

Trinity is filled with suspense, action, romance, dark traits and all the goodies one would want in a paranormal story !!

I truly enjoyed this book and could not put it down; ended up reading it in one sitting.

I liked the characters, and the storyline but in the end, I really wanted more from the book than I got. Don't get me wrong, I truly enjoyed the book. However, I felt like it could have been fleshed out more. There was so much going on that could have been included, but wasn't. The best way to describe it, was that an opportunity was missed; it's almost as if the book was written part time - thi

Trinity was eye-opening and full of action and passion.

Emma is a teacher by day and a mommy by night to a five year old daughter who has an active imagination and suffers from constant nightmares of an evil man who wants to take her away. Emma begins to suffer from nightmares brought on by the same evil and it wont stop until he claims Hannah as his daughter.

I know it sounds bad but I was dreading reading this novel. The story line didn't catch me and I thought it would be a chore to read. Well, I am happy to say that I was completely wrong. I ended up being drawn in by the story of the age old bond between mother and child and the lengths that a mother will go to protect her child even if it means her own death. It seems from some of the reviews that I have read that people either really liked it or they didn't. I actually found the Brethren Angels ...more

How long can one person keep a wall up to protect their heart? Emma is about to find out. Dealing with her daughters nightmares (that seem to be coming more often) alone, just doesn’t seem to be in the cards anymore. Resigned to talk to with someone, Emma just didn’t know how her life was going to change all at the same time. Grab a seat and settle in for a crazy and wild ride. One that will have your heart pounding one second and all mushy the next.

The premise of this book intrigued me, it's not often you find the heroine to be a single Mum, especially in PNR!

Emma moves to a small town with her daughter Hannah following a what I can only guess was a messy divorce. We join them almost six years later when Hannah has been having recurring nightmares that are becoming more vivid and affecting their real lives. Emma turns to her boss Michael for help only to discover that as well as being a school principal he also belongs to The Brethren - a

Overall, Trinity was a ok read. I would give it between a 2.5 to 3 stars.

To me, it was an easy mindless read. Mindless in the sense that the storyline rolled smoothly and the story was good but a little underdeveloped. Trinity didn't pull to hard at my emotions. There were somethings about the book that did bother me. I couldn't get past the fact that the Great Protector of all humans and angels would call his love interest "honey". I shook my head everytime I read that nickname in one of Michae

It was a pretty good read. I liked the characters and the overall story was good. However, the dialog and even in between had a flair for the dramatic, even going so far as "world domination". Also, the utilization of a six year old child to be a warrior was a bit much for me. I understand that she is supposed to have the soul of an ancient warrior with her, but really she is just a child and a six year old should not be yielding a sword. The story felt a bit forced and over dramatic at times, b ...more
