Dana Pratola has done it again with another engaging book from start to finish. Descended Sebastian is the second in a series about men of superhuman strength and ability that are descendants of angelic beings. This book has romance, intrigue, and a good dose of the unexplainable, which is the way a good paranormal should be – even a Christian one. The gospel message is present, but the author doesn’t try to make the mystery of the main characters’ superhuman powers fit into a neat Biblical package. Sometimes fiction is best left as fiction and in this case, it works.
The main character, Sebastian, is especially interesting because of his ‘bad boy’ mystique and is more likeable than Jett, the superhuman hero from book one. Jett is an important character in this book, however, and although it isn’t necessary to read book one first, it is helpful for a complete understanding of the ongoing story. They team up to save Sebastian’s love interest from insidiously evil men working in the sex trade. She is equally imperfect with enough flaws to make her and Sebastian the perfect pair. For me, the ‘rough around the edges characterization’ is probably one of the reasons I liked this book so much. I recommend it to anyone looking for a romance that is somewhat different from the typical fare. I hope more books will follow in this series.

In DESCENDED ~ SEBASTIAN, Dana Pratola creates a character that I've fallen in love with, Sebastian Gray. He's sarcastic, heroic, and incredibly sexy, in short, the perfect masculine romance character.
The dynamics of this book are what stick with me the most. She includes both Jett and Haven from book 1, continuing their storyline for faithful readers, But gives readers a new look at their relationship through the eyes of Sebastian. The love-hate relationship of Jett and Sebastian is humorous and the best part of the storyline for me.
At the same time, she has that same real-life feeling, that drew me to book 1. She takes the paranormal and makes it seem completely at one with reality, the characters someone you could pass on the street. They have desires and emotions like any good romance novel, and a lesson to learn about faith in God and the healing power of salvation.
This is a really excellent series of books. I can't wait to read book three!
