I.Am.Hooked. I'm head over heels, sleep deprived, and obsessed with this series. I can barely get through this review, so I can get the next book. I ignored all but the basic needs of my family for two days (though I received no complaints about pizza for dinner) to devour this book. But don't worry, I won't short you, kittens. Because you guys are the awesome and because I want you to get into this series. Let's do this.
We start off with a very creeptastic and edgy attack on young, and slightly odd Alexis Ames. In fact, that's probably what I love most about this book - The story grabs you by the throat and refuses to let go, dragging you down Tense Street and around the corner to hang off the edge of your chair. When I say I couldn't put it down, I literally could not part with my Nook until I found out what happens next, and then next, and after that. Kristie Cook is a master of suspense! (Also of hot sex scenes, but we'll get to that later. You have to wait ;) Right from the beginning, we get that Alexis knows she's different but her ageless and mysterious mother Sophia won't, or can't, tell her about her quirks till she reaches the Ang'dora. When she mets delectable Tristian in the college library, it gets even more tense and delicious. They begin to date, and try to simultaneously crack each other's hard shells and drop their own guards. As their fragile relationship blooms, otherworldly threats begin to rain down on them. Tristian is forced to explain to Lexi who and what he is, and in part who and what she is.
It is so hard to review some books without spoilers, but I refuse to do it, because I don't want to spoil this trip into another world for y'all. Lets just say the ending was gut-wrenching, ugly cry moment. (I loved every second of it)
I will say that I had this annoying, repetitive thought, and in the spirit of being honest I feel I must say it - Parts of this book reminded me of Twilight, but Alexis isn't annoying and helpless, Tristian isn't an misogynistic stalker, and the honeymoon scene was a total panty melter.
Ok, my dears, I have to go. I have Gensis, the pre-novella to finish reading, and then Purpose to download. Expect to see them here, VERY soon!
When Alexis Ames is attacked by creatures that can't be real, she decides it's time she learns who she really is, with or without the help of her mother, who guards their family's secrets closely. After meeting the inhumanly attractive, multi-talented Tristan Knight, however, Alexis retreats behind her façade of normalcy...until she discovers he's not exactly normal either. Then their secrets begin to unravel. Their union brings hope and promise to her family's secret society, the Angels' army, and to the future of mankind. But it also incites a dangerous pursuit by the enemy - Satan's minions and Tristan's creators. After all, Alexis and Tristan are a match made in Heaven and in Hell.
