Kristin R. Campbell provided us (The Readdicts) with a copy of her book, Lunangelique. We thank the author for the book!

One of the most impressive thing about Lunangelique was that it was everything that I thought it would be. I really liked the way the book started out and it kept getting better and better.
Lunangelique is the story of twins, Alexander (Alex) and Alexis (Lexi), which itself was a huge turn on for me, as I love to read about one girl and one boy twin pairing. The two of them aren't what they think they are.
Being adopted at a very young age, Lexi is very curious to know about her actual biological parents. That's the whole journey of Lunangelique has done an outstanding job with getting Lexi's thoughts straight and clear.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the relationship between Alex and Lexi. I also liked how they were so respectful towards the couple who adopted them, obeyed them and had a normal parent-child relationship with them.
Alex and Lexi's school friends, especially Kaitlyn, Lexi's best friend and Alex's girlfriend (another thing that they both 'share'), were all very sweet and fun to read.
The two guys in the book, Oliver and Cole, were both great in their own ways. I hope I don't have to choose a Team here! There isn't a love triangle, which again is a huge turn on. Once she knows what she wants, Lexi is clear about her loyalty and priority.
One other thing I really liked about Lunangelique was contemporary references like The Hunger Games movie that the school friends go to watch or Snow Patrol's song Chasing Cars that Lexi sings in her head while lying down.
In the end of the book, Lexi receives a letter. I kept reading that letter again and again because it was so beautifully written.
Lunangelique was a cute read. It has a little bit of everything. Lovely cover, astounding story, great protagonists, interesting history, beautiful angels, a bit of astronomy and mythology coupled with romance! You name it and Lunangelique has it!
I can hardly wait to know what happens in the next book in the series, which is called Sleeping Gods.

I just reread this book, and the story was just as good this time as the first. I really enjoy the entire series, and this one sets everything up perfectly. It's an interesting, creative, fun story with some twists and turns I found surprising and inventive.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This book was wonderful and I think this series has become my new guilty pleasure. I loved it.

I connected with Alexis on so many levels. I felt like I knew her and discovered so many of her traits were similar to my own from her love of cold sandwiches to her attitude about dating and school. She was a strong female character who had a good head on her shoulders and was sharp as a tack, which is somethin

Lunangelique is one of those books that once you start to read you can't stop! A fast reading, with some funny situations, an interesting story and a lovely romance this book also has the perfect ending to leave you wanting for more. This book might seem similar to other stories but it has some points on its favor that makes it unique. It has some clever twists and a fast rhythm which is perfect for those who love a good rush of emotions.

This is a must read! I love all the characters in the book I couldn't even put it down it was so good. It was one of those books you had to see what was going to happen next. I love the romance between Cole and Lexi and I can't wait to see what happens with those 2. They were my favorite of course. After the end of the book I was like no where is the rest now I have to wait till book 2 to see what happens and I'm so looking forward to it. Love it!!

SPOILERS!!!!! I have to say that I really do like this book, it was great to start off with a little bit of romance. As I read more of this book I couldn't help but to guess a few times at what was going to happen,after finding out some of the story I was in complete shock. The only thing I did not like was the ending,I hate when you start liking one of the guys i.e. making you fangirl lol....he just has to leave :( but I can't wait to read book 2

WOW, I loved this book so much, and was so happy that the sequel Sleeping Gods was out and bought it right away! Man, its just as good as JLA's Covenant Series. Story is totally different, but I mean as the meshing of modern day with some mythology int here and some angels too. This book was different in a great way.

The plot is truly interesting because, unlike other mythology books, this one blends Greek mythology with Christianity, and it does so in a wonderful fashion. I mean it makes it plausible and conceptually sound, which renders an engaging story. I really liked the twist such a mixture brings.

The characters were my favourite part of this book. They are so complex. Of course it is hard to get to know all of them well, but I liked that at least we get to see certain depth in all the main

Stories involving mythology are becoming some of my favourite reads, and Lunangelique was a great example of another enjoyable story!! Being an Australian, books that involve American Teenagers and High School are entertaining to me, so to combine both into one plot is definitely my kind of book and this one was just fabulous!!

The book is from Alexis’s (Lexie) POV, and it begins on a shopping trip in the summer holidays, with her twin brother Alex and his girlfriend Kait

My review of Lunangelique by Kristen R Campbell

Rating 5*****

Usually I begin my reviews by giving a little synopsis of my view of events, but let me start her by saying this book is a real winner. In fact, I couldn't put it down, and got absolutely no sleep in order to finish! Alexis and Alex are twins who were adopted at birth. They have a great life and awesome friends, but both feel the small piece of them that is missing- who is their birth parents? Lexi spends the en

This is the book I just finished reading last night!! Its YA supernatural romance genre. This story had me from the beginning!! It felt like a realistic supernatural story so I didn't have a hard time getting lost in its pages. The leading man is seriously daydream worthy and the leading lady isn't a weakling damsel in distress. The love story is very romantic but the story is about more than that. I'm trying not to say too much because I don't want to spoil it. My only "complaint" is that it ne ...more

Lexi and Alex are adopted twins with a perfect family and friends. They meet Ollie, a new kid and he seems quite taken with Lexi, too bad Lexi meets new neighbor Cole, and she is quite taken with him. A world wind romance starts between Cole and Lexi and it's only complicated by the fact that he's an assistant teacher at her school and seems to be keeping secrets from her. The more she's with him, the more she thinks there is something not quite human about him, and possibly herself and Alex as ...more

This book had been sitting on my TBR shelf for a while, and I am kicking myself for not reading it as soon as I got it. Campbell had such a creative twist to Angels and Greek Mythology. I was entranced reading this book, and didn't move once until I was done reading. This book is a perfect example of why I love blogging. I highly recommend reading Lunangelique!

This book is a good read.... I wasn't really expecting the love interest to happen first and then the paranormal stuff to go on... Most books are opposite. The ending was a little not expected other than the fact that I always read the last page, first no matter what, I knew what was coming. Hopefully we will get more of Cole's POV or what his full story is in one of the next couple books.... I wasn't expecting it to be an Angel book, clearlyI over looked the cover but it was a good and easy rea ...more

I started this series based on the recommendations of several friends. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into, but boy am I glad my friends know me so well. If you love Greek mythology then this is a series you do not want to miss. Twins (Alex and Alexis) have a very normal life, but when new students arrive at their school all hell breaks loose. I enjoyed the way Kristin wove this story together and how not everything plays out the way we think it will. She leads us down a road th

I won this book in a giveaway and was I so lucky to get my hands on it! I fell in love with this book from the start and could not put it down!
The chemistry between the characters flows so well, and I immediately took a liking to Lexie and hoped that she would get with the guy next store! Little did I know that this story was so much more than just romance!

I am so glad that I have read this series and can't wait for the next installment!

it was a little slow starting off but I'm glad I continued to read. there were a few minor grammatical errors, wrong words in the wrong place, and in once case Ollie's name was used where Cole was supposed to be used. BUT with that being said it wasn't enough to distract from the book. I just purchased the second book and I am excided to see where is continues to go.

Alexander (Alex) and Alexis (Lexi) are adopted twins who are entering their senior year of high school. Cole moves into the house across the street and Ollie moves in across town. The twins meet more new people as they begin many new adventures, not all of them good. Who can they trust to help them through what lies ahead for them?


Excellent book!

Wow it's been a while since I was hooked from the first few pages of a book but this had me captured.

Great imagination & fantastic writing that helps u feel ur there with the characters.

I love books about angels, myths, good v evil but this is one of my faves.

Lunagelique blew me away. Not my typical read, I was led on a journey of mythical gods and angels. Being sucked in every minute, I found myself unable to put my Kindle down. Kristin R. Campbell had me asking questions with every turn of the page and I cannot wait to start Sleeping Gods.

Twins Alexis and Alexander (or Lexi and Alex respectively) appear to have it all - two loving adoptive parents, a tight knit group of friends and their final year of high school on the horizon. Only Lexi feels something is missing. She devotes her summer to researching her birth parents only to come up empty handed. Her disappointment is temporarily put on hold by the arriva

This is a interesting story. You have angels (Cole oh me oh my), demigods, gods, myths, danger, adventure and love. Once you get past the editing that needs to be done it captures you. Alex is my favorite of the twins even though we don't really see much of him. He's steady and practical, level headed and the calm before the storm. One that makes you feel safe. Alexis not really getting the yeah vibe. Her and Cole are good. But her alone at times just a wee bit much. She has a temper that flares ...more
