My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I was struggling with this book, honestly, until the very end where the romance saved the book. The blurb from the book definitely did not prepare me at all for the myriad of paranormal that is in this seriesI was expecting something more along the lines of Lauren Kate's Fallen series, where it pretty much sticks to angels and demons. This story was such a mishmash of paranormal creatures that my head was spinning.
The back story behind Eva and Soren wasn't really explained until much later in the book than I would have liked, and I feel that really needed to be explained a lot earlier in the book than it was.
I enjoyed how the interest free between Eva and Thomas, I think they make a food couple, and when it came down to it, Eva made the right decision between the two males cying for her attentions.
The book could have been longer with more explained, but it was a very quick read, with me being able to finish it in a day.
Mandie Stevens has always been accused of living in her own world so she decided to put it to paper. When she isn’t writing you can catch her lounging on the beach reading. She has ridiculously little feet and would be happy eating seafood every day.
