My Review

If you thought after reading the blurb you would get your answers in this book you would be wrong, if anything I ended up with more questions. We go from the Ancient World (or planet) to the present day. From a family of murderous and magnificent beings(they could be vampires or fallen angels) to what is seemingly a normal family who have at least one Angel with them for a time. Grace is a little girl who is having flashbacks to previous lives which noone knows about and is trying to make sense of them.

The family of ?Angels are brutal killers fighting to make their mark in their own world over the other family, beings who are very sexual with each other and also aggressive. They want the girl from our time and send members of their family to get her and bring her back alive.

Book 1 is basically a base layer, I honestly think book two will answer a lot of questions and fill in the huge blanks and questions that arise reading the first. I really enjoyed the flashbacks of Juliette and Abaddons family and their antics. Wondering what did cause the war and where is this much loved and feared brother and what is his role going to be. What really happened to Graces father and what is the story with Angela and her dog, and is there more to Wade than meets the eye.

So many questions but the parts of the story we are given are really good but I think once part two is read the story will take shape and so much will be explained. They say a writer should leave their readers wanting more so I would say job very well done but I would have liked to have known just a bit more for my first book. Frustrating but enjoyable so 3/5 for me and I will be looking out for the next volume to hopefully have my questions answered and at least some of the mysteries explained.

Thanks to the author for giving me a copy of this to read and it is available for the kindle for only £1.48 on Amazon.co.uk also on Smashwords or on Amazon.com for $8.50 in paperback.
