Overview

"No one knows WHEN the world will end but how do you go on, when you’ve seen HOW it will end? If the dark ones don’t kill me first...I'll tell everyone."--- Starling Marie Roberts.
College Sophomore, Starling Roberts is afraid of the dark and the malignant beings within it because she has known this all her life.
The shadow beings are real and she has always been able to see them.
Plagued with fear and the constant imagery of what appears to be how the world will end in her dreams, isn't an easy burden to carry; especially when that darkness is after you for the very thing that makes each one of us stand apart from them. Our Divinity.
Starling is one of the many divine chosen but she is a rare and unique.
Past tribulations and tragedies have all served to wilt her own beliefs, leaving her to begin questioning her own purpose and faith.
But that begins to change when the dark shadows begin attacking her mentally...and physically.
Her unusual divinity has placed her on the top most wanted list set by the dark fallen, and she has become the target of a planned catastrophic, deadly, orchestrated event, controlled and led by Morning Star himself.
Starling's only hope to remain alive and sane is Cam'ael, a renegade, fallen Incubus who lusts for her, and Drakael—the Angel determined to keep her from him.

This is her Chronicle, pulled and put together from her own personal journals now known as The Book of Starling.
Combined with the journals of Cam'ael; Former Chief Angel of all Powers, in his own words and at his own personal request.

Meet the Author

The Divinity Saga came about from a recurring dream of my own. From the start, the character of Starling came to fruition. At first, Divinity the Gathering was meant to be just one book but I couldn’t see how both Starling and Cam'ael’s story would be complete in just one. I don’t have any impressive accolades or awards to mention as far as my writing history goes though I have been writing for many, many years. I love to write and I’m thrilled to know that people are reading it and even more so, liking what they are reading. This is the first time I’ve decided to finally try my hand at publishing something. Though I dabble in many genres I gravitate more towards urban fantasy and paranormal. In my spare time, books replace television and I love reading horror. I love trying new things and since I love to cook and bake, much of that creative energy ends up on the dinner table, whether it be a meal or dessert. I reside in Texas and work a nine to five job in Law Enforcement to supplement both my writing and reading habit. I do respond to and love to stay engaged with potential readers and fans, so feel free to drop in a hello or a quick message to me anytime on Goodreads or on The Divinity Saga Facebook page. Would love to meet all of you! In my down time, I love making jewelry, practicing martial arts with my son, and being the guinea pig for my aspiring Esthetician daughter!

WOW! Amazing Read! I couldn't put the book down. the story was so intricate and the characters so interesting. I love books about fallen Angels and this one has quickly flown to the top of my 10 most loved list. My favourite of all was Cam of course how could it not. He was such a wonderful and heartbreaking character who loved and wanted to be loved so much. He knows he must be with her even if its technically forbidden, and he doesn't much care, As long as she needs him he will protect her. He was the warrior and the protector and no matter his circumstance he never compromised or changed himself for anyone.  Star was an incredible individual who didn't take crap and even though she was scared stood up for herself and others. Her story was tragic and heartbreaking but she didn't let it change her life and who she was. Her Divine gift sets her apart from others and her nightmares drive her to the edge of insanity but still she holds on, never fearing it will all come together in the end. Morning Star was incredible in this book. He was witty, scary and dark as Hell itself. I would not want to come up against him. He is a larger then life character in a lot of peoples eyes which makes it him a hard character to write about and I think Susan nailed it perfectly!  I believe that Susan is a amazing author and I can't wait to read more of Cam and Stars story. This is the kind of book that could stand on its own or be put in a series. I think Susan went above and beyond when it came to describing the people and places. The story was incredible the characters witty and fun and the battles epic. If you haven't yet read it get you copy today!

Excellent, well-written story. Don't let the page number stop you...it goes quickly because the plot moves. Both viewpoints of both of the main characters...Star and Cam`ael, were cleverly written to fall in sync with one anothers which kept the pages turning for me! The premise and idea of the book is a unique one given that it left me to ponder many things even though the story is fiction. It works as entertaining because there is much popular ideas and universal beliefs weaved together with supernatural fantasy, romance and humor. Star is just like many young adult girls her age. She drinks even though she isn't 21, she isn't trying to play holier than thou because of her gifts and she definitely isn't the damsel in distress.She wasn't whiny, indecisive or naiive and I found her relatable and very likeable as if she could be my own best friend, especially the relationship between her and her roommate and best friend. Her reactions to her supernatural experiences; how she felt and how she dealt with them made her more real. I love Cam`ael! Aside from being a hot incubus demon, he was sexy, personable yet cocky with a sense of humor and made you want to be both pursued and loved by him despite being a dark fallen. Though I wished there could have been more interaction between the two main characters with each other on a more physical level...I think I know why there was just enough in this first book. The author clearly wanted to establish something deeper between them and not rush it. I am really looking foward to the next book and hope it doesn' t end there! I think the first book ended perfectly....leaving me thirsting for more, I am most definitely hooked!

Came across this one on a search and because it was free. I love stories about Angels and Demons. This one has an interesting plot and so far I am being reeled into the saga!

It is nice to find something different and so unique that you can't help but feel for both Starling and Cam, the main characters. I thought it be like another Twilight or even Mortal Instruments though it kind of falls within that genre. This saga is definitely one of the more memorable and intriguing ones and  I'm hooked!. I certainly wasn't prepared for the ending either! The story is told from dual points of views of the main character Starling and the fallen Camael. It was well written and entertaining, which can sometimes be difficult t to pull off. Ms. Reid managed to flawlessly tell a story from two different beings so well, that even they don't see things coming and so as a reader your're just as shocked and drawn in. This is definitely not written in a way to push religious beliefs of any kind. My absolute favorite character is Ryziel and Cam. You;ll have to read to find out wjy I absolutely cannot wait for the final book in the saga!!
