Meet the Author

Plain and simple, I'm a geek. I love to read. My earliest memories were of walking to the neighborhood library (2 blocks away)by myself at age nine. Okay, that dates me(LOL), because I'd never let my kids to that now.

My favorite things to do? Listen to music, watch movies, reading (of course)and daydreaming.

I've read a fair number of young adult paranormal romances, but not read one quite like this before. The voodoo angle is interesting and original and the New Orleans setting very evocative. Rather an unusual hero. He's a nice twist on the ubiquitous angel heroes I've read so much of recently. When I realised who/what he was, I wondered if the author could pull him off as a hero, but she did a wonderful job of making him sympathetic. Full of action, danger and romance, this is a compelling read. Looking forward to the next in the series!

This book was a little bit slow to start but after a few chapters in it was a very exciting read. Some parts of the book were highly predictable but even so it still kept my attention and once I really got into it I didn't want to put it down until I was finished. The author does a good job of switching between the main characters of Lisette and Eric so you get the full picture of what's going on, rather than being kept in the dark until certain events take place. I also really enjoyed the authors writing style. It was very easy to read and be involved in the story, allowing for easy attachment and empathy for Lisette and Eric. I also really enjoyed that this book was not actually a romance, while it did have romantic elements that is not what the story revolved around, which seems almost rare to find these days. The book doesn't end on a cliffhanger per say but it's pretty close to one. If the next book in the series was already out, I probably would have been compelled to go buy it and immediately start reading to see how things get wrapped up in the next book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I did have my reservations since I've never read a book centered around voodoo before, but I can safely say even though this book is centered around the idea of voodoo it doesn't get all technical and wordy with it which is nice.
