“Book One, in the Dark Betrayal Trilogy, Mortal Obligation, by Nicole Chase is a fascinating young adult, paranormal read. I was swept into Ree McKenna's very different life, as she and her friends receive powers from the gods, to battle an ancient foe from another world, who threatens the existence of Earth.
Filled with many twists, readers will find the storyline of Mortal Obligation, unpredictable as they follow Ree's path. At the start of the book it would be easy to think that this was a vampire or ghost story, but with an original concept, Chase has created a unique read.”
“Lots of twists and turns...final twist I didn't see coming although there were a few subtile hints earlier in the book. I find Paden to be boring, wondering what will happen with the Dark One Roland...hmmm....”TracySchoenberg wrote this review Monday, January 28, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?

“I'm really undecided on this one. Intriguing concept, interesting characters, the usual teenage romantic triangle, some action, but the background/mythology info on the gods and immortals is sorely lacking. I felt like I was reading a second or third novel in the series instead of the 1st. I don't know if the book entertained me enough to want to read the next in the series.”Kathryn wrote this review Tuesday, March 20, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Mortal Obligation is an strange and unique twist of paranormal and scifi. With a detailed mix of mythology and supernatural being; this story transforms into an Xmen like group that is dedicated to the fight against evil. Admittedly, I struggle with the background of this story. The mixture was very unique and creative, but I felt it was difficult in envision. Even with this obstacle it was surprising easy to continue, and overcome the this obstacle to find an enticing and enjoyable read. The characters prove entertaining and interesting that add to a fulfilling experience. As a debuting novel for this series it is obvious that this was the first book, and the novel appears ready to take off from here. With the momentum that was previewed in concluding book one; I anticipate that will surpass my expectations. ”Book Whisperer wrote this review Monday, January 30, 2012.

“This has the makings of a great YA series! The main characters are all well-written and very close with just a little mystery and romantic tension going on. Good read!

“This was a fantastic read, and perfect for YA audiences. I don't read much YA, because I tend to lose interest in the characters, but Ree was so well-drawn it was a pleasure, and I'm really looking forward to the next book.
Highly recommend for YA readers and adults, too!”
“Gods and goddesses, vampires, aliens, mortal teenage girls with the ability to harnish the power of life so how could you possible go wrong by reading this book. Well you can't, it was a fantastic read with a twist that will make you yell WHAT! NO WAY! ”Sailon wrote this review Thursday, September 22, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?
