“Wow, this book was great. I really enjoyed it. I will say it took me a bit to get into it, as there is a lot of character building, which is ok, but seems a little too much on some that really didn’t need to be, but that’s just my opinion. I did have to get used to the writing style, as I have gotten used to the first person view and in a lot of books they will be first person, with alternating points of view, and that is my favorite is when done right anyway. This is from the 3rd person view I guess its called, but it got confusing at times, as I was not always sure who’s point of view it was from. Think its just me, not reading many books like that. I got used to it by the halfway point, which is also where the book really took off and got really interesting for me.
It’s a good thing I have book 2 already, so I can start it right away. I waited to write this, then go start book 2. The end was where it really got going, then ended suddenly for me, as my Kindle lied, It said I was at 85% done, and then it’s the end of the book. So I was not expecting that, lol
I won’t go into any spoilers or anything. Just let you know a few things I liked, and a few teasers for you, so you can get a feel for the book.
I found Alyx to be a bit hard to like at first, but it just took time for me to connect, but I finally did. I really liked Issac, he seemed to be a great guy. His son we didn’t learn a lot about, Micah, but he seemed to be a great kid, who also seemed to have the same Prophitic dreams as his dad.
I didn’t like Benjiman at all, he was a controlling stuffy guy, and to me could have just been left out of the story all together. My opinion of course.
I liked her best friend for sure. I was happy how all that turned out, the twist I didn’t see coming. Lol
We get some funny parts at times as well. Here is a few teasers that I liked:
This is a pert where Issace thinks Alyx is a stalker, and his son seen her through the peephole when she came to the door (to check on him, as she needs to keep him safe)
“I don’t understand. Why would you NOT open the door for that woman?” Micah asked. He had peered through first. The initial round of knocking alerted him as he headed to the kitchen for a soda, and he didn’t recognize the attractive woman so he went to get his father, who ran to the door to see who it was. When he laid eyes upon her strained, smiling face he jumped away from the door, unable to mask his bewilderment.
“Why did she scare you like that, dad? Do you know her?”
Isaac needed to give his son some sort of explanation, and reinforce a healthy fear for strangers who might approach him. Mainly Alyx. He couldn’t keep him holed up in the apartment forever, and he couldn’t be with him every second of the day.
He waved the bottle of Windex toward the couch. “Go sit down. I’ll explain.”
“I can’t wait to hear about that scary, scary Barbie that was at our door.”
And this part:
“So,” he began, his voice brightening, and her eyes snapped to the mirror to witness his exuberance. A smile covered his pale face, and she couldn’t help but return the gesture as he continued. “You were spyin’ on me then, I knew it! My sexy stalker.”
Yeah, this is a great story, and can see it will just get better with each book, as the background and character building was done in this one, so now it will just be great and faster paced I think.
I highly recommend this series, if you like the paranormal romance books, (less on the romance in this one) or supernatural you will love this.
5 out of 5 stars.
I was provided a copy of this book for my honest review.”
