Overview

Daughter of the Fallen by Madeline Wynn

Most sixteen-year olds aren't worried about the fate of their immortal souls. May Krieg should be.

Typically, honors student May's biggest problems have revolved around her super-hot arch-rival, Jack. But when a school project takes them ghost-hunting in a local cemetery, she discovers that an ominous force roams in the darkness around her.

And it follows her home.

It claws its way into her life, burning messages into her wall and imprinting them onto her body. Even worse, she can't tell if it's trying to possess her... or protect her.

May's thoughts soon become actions, causing the target of her anger severe physical pain and giving her a rush the likes of which she has never experienced. She quickly realizes that she needs to find a way to reign in this power before she kills someone. May hates the pleasure it gives her, hates herself for hurting others, but she can't stop.

As her entire world shatters around her, she is forced to ask what her soul is worth-- and who would she risk losing her soul to save?

Daughter of the Fallen is a deliciously creepy read that pulls you right in from the first few chapters.  Junior May (Mason) Krieg thought her biggest problem was going to be beating the hot-but-annoying-jerk Jack at academics so she had a chance at getting a scholarship to go to college. But a late night trip to a cemetery (such a spooky scene!) soon has her seeing ominous shadows everywhere. What are they? What do they want? What does it all mean?  Is anything she thought she knew about her life actually real? I really enjoyed May's voice--her quirky, off-beat sense of humor resonated with me. Jack has the potential to be a fantastic hero--he's not in enough of this book (in my humble opinion), but when he is he's extremely likable, May's initial antipathy aside. I hope he's got a bigger role in book two--he definitely deserves it. Ms. Wynn did a nice job with the atmospheric setting here, ratcheting the tension up so that keeping the pages turning felt like an absolute necessity. Just as things start to go really south for May though, the book comes to an end--I'm not sure if this is going to be a two-book series or a trilogy, but this ending has me wanting to see what's going to happen next...and SOON. (One niggling little bit bothered me, though--May spent an awful lot of time thinking about the effect certain characters/events had on her womb. I can't recall ever thinking about that part of my anatomy as a sixteen-year-old--I'm pretty sure my brain would have rather shut down than contemplate it, especially using that particular terminology. It wasn't a deal breaker or anything, but it did pull me out of the story a bit.) Rating: 4 stars / B+ I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

4.5/5 I just have to say 2 things first. OMG I loved this book! So different but amazing. Second its a cliffhanger so be forewarned! May is 16 and her life has turned upside down. The head to the cemetery one night to work on a school project and make a horrid discovery in the process. At first she thought she was possessed but it turns out she really just has an evil soul. Through no fault of her own though. Her father is a fallen. If that wasn't bad enough her social life just got so much worse. These actions make it harder to control the evil inside her. For everything May has to go through, she is amazing. Even though she is a teenager, she holds herself more like an adult. I love all the supporting characters. I could talk forever about all of them. I cried at the end of this book. I can not wait until the next one comes out so I can find out what happens with May, Sid, her mother and Jack!

Oh, that description above is different from the one that was there when I signed up for this review tour, but both take parts of the book, and makes it interesting to read! And yeah, it was a pretty great, entertaining book! I don't read too, too many ghost story books, mostly because right now, I'm mainly reading reread books, and eARC's, so yeah, it was a pretty nice treat to be able to read this book, it was pretty darned great! I enjoyed May's journey, from someone who yeah, doesn't really do ghosts, but then does, and yeah, those darker notes in the book, of her being able to hurt people, most of the time, that'd be all it'd take to label as a bad guy, But May's not. She just has this power, and you know the saying! And just the idea of the competition between her and Jack? Yeah, it could've gone in 2 directions, for me, either they were competing because they'd be perfect for each other, or he would be, well, a nemesis of hers! And I liked which direction her and  Jack went! Yeah, really enjoyed this book, it was a great creepy, paranormal YA, and yeah, just so good!

Reviewed by Savannah Edelen for Readers' Favorite Daughter of the Fallen by Madeline Wynn is an incredible and fantastic story about a teenage girl. She doesn’t want to follow along with everyone else in their adoration of Jack, the popular rich kid. Starting The Daughter of the Fallen off, you are introduced to May at a graveyard doing a video report with her boyfriend Cay, the rich boy Jack, and a girl named Alicia. During their video, May falls down a mine shaft and sees something, something that leaves the mine shaft with her. Then she finds out that the demon from the mine shaft wasn’t released when she fell in; it has been with her all of her life. Now it is up to May to do all that she can to keep from falling into the darkness that threatens to consume her. Daughter of the Fallen is a well written tale that captures not only your mind, but your heart as well. Madeline Wynn has created a wonderful book and I would expect the rest of the series to be just as fascinating. As Daughter of the Fallen progresses, more twists and turns are thrown in. Full of hope, despair, and romance, everything that makes a good book is all packed into this 200+ page book. Read and watch as you are transported to a wonderful place you will never want to leave. How much better could it get? Read the stunning first book in the series, Daughter of the Fallen by Madeline Wynn, to find out. May is waiting for you.

I really loved this book! The beauty of this book by Madeline Wynn is that it gets you from the first chapter. The action picks up so quickly that you will be hooked right away. I was intrigued from the start, and I needed to know what in the world was going on! I did not put the book down until I knew! It's spooky, quirky, and at times down right scary! It kept me guessing and I was not disappointed when it all unraveled. Highly recommended to anyone who loves YA fiction!!

Deliciously creepy and satisfyingly romantic.  Madeline Wynn's authentic teen voice and edge of your seat present tense, first person narrative gripped me from page one and didn't let go. In Daughter of the Fallen, Wynn creates a believable teen thriller with a unique paranormal twist and just enough romance and drama to take me from chills to hot flashes and smiles to tears.  I won't give any spoilers but suffice it to say, Wynn has woven an engaging teen thriller that will keep you up late into the night turning pages...if you dare.

It's been a long time since I picked up a YA novel that kept me turning pages far into the night. Madeline Wynn has crafted a debut novel that did just that. Perfect pacing, beautiful prose, sharp dialogue, a heroine and a hero you will fall in love with, and a dark, twisty, and at times surprising plot will have you racing through to the end and desperate for the next book in the series--which can't come soon enough for me. All the more reason to read Daughter of the Fallen again, slower this time to savor every word. Madeline Wynn is an author to watch.
