Having traveled to over 25 countries, lived in the American South, in California, Las Vegas, and briefly in England; Kailin Gow feels blessed to be able to use her experiences and inspirations to bring characters and stories from the places she visit, to life.

From visiting Romania, she was asked to write stories about vampires; visiting the Black Forest in Germany and seeing the castles of Europe inspired her to write fantasy; visiting Asia's mystical mountains inspired her to write action adventure and mythological dystopians. From her experience in college as a peer counselor and her volunteer work with women's shelters, she was inspired to write contemporary romance with social issues for women, new adults, young adults, and teens. Having faced adversity, including battling stereotypes and bullying, Kailin Gow has become a well-known speaker and figure in media. Her adventurous bold spirit has taken her around the world, where she has ridden on top of elephants through jungles, hand-fed sting rays, studied kung fu from a Shaolin Temple monk, and learned cooking from a celebrity chef.

Compelled to write her first fiction book because of 9/11, Kailin Gow now has over 100 fiction books published with a handful of non-fiction books, has sold over a million books, and is now in the development phase of her most popular book series being turned into games and films (look up Kailin Gow on IMDB, and you will find which ones.)

She has over 20 Series, written under Kailin Gow:

    Heaven and Hell picks up where Beautiful Beings left off.  Lux finds herself going through the motions at school, Brax and Asher are both missing from her life.  She now knows what the Beautiful Beings are, and the curse that they live under, and unfortunately finds herself very enamored with Moore, who just so happens to be one.  Moore's feelings for Lux prove to be sincere, and he ends up helping her to track down Brax, and both he and Brax agree to help Asher.  While Shayne is embracing her dark side, Moore is trying desperately to fight his, and Lux is committed to help him overcome his curse, finding her self falling for him harder and harder.  They take a trip to England and manage to find Brax, convincing him to come back, but when Lux receive's a visit from Brax's dead parents, it is soon revealed that Brax also suffers from the same curse that Moore is under.  Asher rises to the occasion and though he still has strong feelings for Lux, they manage to keep those in tow in this installment, and are focused more on fighting the demons and recovering and keeping safe "The Book of Angels," which holds many secrets that do not need to fall into the wrong hands.  They find themselves in an intense battle, after which the truth of who and what Lux really is, is revealed. 




    I enjoyed the story more in this book, as it seemed to have more of a defined purpose, which was to stop Shayne, get the book, and help Moore and Asher get freed from their curse.  There were battles with demons, and they learned more about the Incubus and Succubus demons, as well as the need for an Angel to help defeat them.  Lux was able to control the physical aspect of her relationship with Asher, even though the chemistry was still there, but she still bounced between Moore and Brax.  After an incredible weekend with Moore, as soon as they find Asher, she winds up in his arms kissing him, even though she loves Moore.  This back and forth continues, and that is really my only dislike about the book and the series, though it is a major one.  Lux does find something out about Brax at the end, which may help her in her decision as to which guy she wants, however that remains to be seen.  What she finds out about herself, however, may be to key to saving both of them.  Personally, I like Asher, but Lux likes them all, so we'll have to see where that goes.  I am curious about what happens next, so I think I will be reading the next book in the series when I get a chance.  I would have really enjoyed this book if it weren't for the way Lux bounced from guy to guy, which in my opinion, tarnished her image as a heroine and the one who was to bring light to the dark situations.  We'll have to see what happens in the next book.
