“You see, there is safety in simplicity… in a life of simple peace, where the electricity doesn’t dance across the backs of my eyelids, and the sparks don’t slither over my consciousness. Only asinine peace, where my paintings don’t seem to paint themselves, leaving me with terrible feelings of premonition and a chill beneath my fingernails.”
Seraph Black used to think that she was prepared for anything. She could last days without eating and she always walked away from the violent altercations with her father relatively unharmed. She survived working at the club and the drive to school every day in her mother’s rust-bucket of a car… but it all changed when Noah and Cabe came bulldozing into her life, careless of the precious secrets they picked apart in their quest to take over her world. She was even less prepared for the mysterious Miro and Silas, and nothing could have prepared her for the bond. The connection. The reason for it all.
Someone wanted her to stay away from her new friends, but she wasn’t willing to do that.
Everyone had secrets.
She wanted to know theirs. They wanted to own hers.
And the stalker?
He seemed to know everything already.
So, the beginning of this book, where you find out about Seraph’s horrid home life, had me instantly hooked and connected to this poor girl. It made her real and made me feel for her. I thought she and the other characters were really well written. The story flowed well in general, though it could get a tad wordy and windy in a few places. In general, I thought that it was really well done.
I actually enjoyed the love… pentagon? LOL. Normally a girl torn between multiple guys drives me nuts, but I didn’t mind it in this book so much.
I always love some fantasy and romance, and for me, this delivered in full. There is a cliffhanger, since those seem to bother some people so much lately, but I don’t mind it, and I’ll be getting the second book soon.
