Blown away! I absolutely LOVED this book! Reading paranormal/supernatural is my cup of tea! Let me just say this book did NOT disappoint AT ALL! This just might be my new favorite YA Paranormal series. So, so good! If you loved the show/book series Vampire Diaries, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, or even True Blood, I highly recommend you pick this book up. Some elements in this book even reminded me of The Mortal Instruments a bit. All I can say is I highly suggest you read this one! I don’t understand why there aren’t many people reading this series. It needs and deserves more attention. I flew through this book and I want to go on Amazon right now and and buy the second book and start reading it immediately. I can think of nothing better than curling up with the second book in this series and a glass of red wine. What a perfect Friday night that would be! Unfortunately for me, I have other read/review commitments to other books tonight. 🙁
If you are planning on reading anything this weekend and need a great escape into another world pick this book up. A great book to read after a stressful work week. Every page of this book is full of fun.
The fell in love with the characters in this book. They were hard not to love. Roman just might be my next book boyfriend. I think I’m in love with him. I don’t get this way about fictional characters in books. He really did it for me though. Might be my obsession with Damon from The Vampire Diaries. Romann reminded me of him. Celeste is an awesome chic who loves to read romance novels, and is a hopeless romantic. I really loved her character. Her friend Brian is the kind of guy friend every girl dreams of having. Brian made me think of and long for my guy best friend. I loved Celeste’s Mother as well. She is a hard working Mother who just wants the best for her one and only daughter. These characters were extremely easy to relate to and highly memorable. I truly loved them all.
The romance in this book was beautiful! It was balanced perfectly. Not over done. The dialogue wasn’t overdone or drawn out. There was no need for pointless drawn out conversations between characters in this book. They spoke when they had something important to say. The writing was simple and easy to follow. I was never confused while reading this book. I always knew what was going on. The pace of the story flowed easily. It kept me turning pages. It was a constant treat. I didn’t want it to end. I was so wrapped up in this story that it felt like it only took me and hour to read. The world around me just melted away. I felt like I was in the story.
This series is just getting started and I already know there is going to be some great adventures to come! So many awesome paranormal characters in this book and by the end of the book we just meet a new paranormal character. This book was set up so perfectly that there are so many ways the author could go with this series. I am so excited to see where this goes. I am truly anticipating picking up the next book in this series. I am ready for more paranormal excitement! I really can’t speak highly enough of this series. It was pure enjoyment from beginning to finish.
About the Author:
G.K. De Rosa has been an avid reader from a very young age. At the precocious age of two, while living in Italy, she had memorized an entire children’s book in Italian and expertly turned the pages at the exact right moments of the story. As she grew up, she always enjoyed literature, no doubt having been instilled with a love of story telling from her early years in Catholic school where she was greatly influenced by exemplary teachers who taught her the value of English and Literature. Though she did not pursue writing in college and instead went for the more traditional route of International Business inspired by her love for travel and all things foreign, after a move to New York City, she found her creative writing side calling once again. She began writing a restaurant review blog, City Lights and Tasty Bites, detailing her other passion – food! The hectic hustle and bustle of the city, combined with long commuting times gave her the opportunity to spend more time reading and rekindled a lost love. After reading countless books in many diverse genres over the two years in New York City, and returning to her home state of Florida, she felt compelled to write something for herself. She had always felt particularly drawn to Young Adult novels and having been an eternal romantic at heart, a fantasy romance was a natural choice. She currently lives in South Florida with her real life Prince Charming and their fur baby, Nico the German shepherd.
