I received this book to give an honest review. *May CONTAIN SPOILERS*
You know when you start reading the first page of a book and you are like hot damn I just know this book is going to be good. Well this was one of those books. As soon as I read the first page I was all ready engaged into the story and did not want to put it down.
You get first introduced to an evil character Edric and let me say what he did was sadistic. Then you move to the next character Eve and you get a piece of who she is. And that is how this whole story starts. You go back and forth between characters for the chapters and the author did a wonderful job weaving the story with each character.
The author brings the supernatural into the mix and it just seems to help the story take off even more. You have the immortals who have a job to do and it all deals with a baby being born. But there are the evil forces at foot who want this baby for their own evil plot.
I really enjoyed reading Eve she seemed like a very strong character who would do anything for her child. There is plenty of action and I loved it all!
Now the only reason I am giving this book a 4 wine glass rating and not a solid 5 like I hoped is because there is a part where Eve meets Adley. They are hanging around together and Eve mentions early that she is like thirty-seven weeks pregnant, then later on with Adley she is a week over due. But Adley mentions something about 2 months. I got a bit confused on this piece because I wasn't sure how long her and Adley were together. I know sounds really silly but I felt the author could have elaborated more on how long time has passed with Eve and Adley being together in the car.
A great story and the ending was just perfect for this book as to where you are not in a major cliff hanger. I can not wait to read book two as I hope it has just as much action as this one has.
I have been an avid reader for longer than I can remember, desiring the darker, edgier works of Bram Stoker, Stephen King, Dean Koontz. I first started writing in High School giving that away when my first attempt was nothing more than dribble. I wish now that I kept at it, pursued it with a hunger that I currently possess.
Writing is my passion, it is what fuels the fires inside of me and it is an all-or-nothing furnace that keeps me up at all hours.
I am married to a wonderful supportive husband, I have 2 wonderful kids and the best friends that I have waited some 35 odd years to meet.
