Overview

"Baron Ford," he says and pauses to pick apart my expression, attempting to read how familiar I am with that name. I nod stiffly to give no indication I know exactly, who that is. I'm shocked to hear it in this setting, at this stage of my life, the one far away from Cambridge, Massachusetts over five years later."



Advertising Executive, Clarity Parker thought she would never see Baron Ford again. Five years ago, they shared a magical first date and then poof--he literally vanished into thin air. That's why she's stunned to hear his name again. After all, five years have passed since that night, and now, to add intrigue to insult, he's requested that she be exclusively assigned to his multi-million dollar account.



Clarity makes every effort to avoid Baron Ford but when he finally catches up to her he issues a warning; she's not safe, especially in the strange fog that has settled over Manhattan.



Before the foggy day is over Clarity's entire world will come crashing down. Everything about her life she thought was true is a lie! And there's no time to question her soap opera star mother or business mogul father about these new discoveries because Baron was right, her life is in danger and so is his!



One thing's for sure, from this point on, the world as Clarity Parker has known it will never be the same.

This is all done in true first person and is really to read. I skipped large sections because so much time was spent on detailed descriptions of things that added nothing to the story. I was never able to connect with the main character so none of the other characters really developed for me either since it was all done from her perspective. The actual premis of the story was intersting but it didn't pan out for me. I won't be reading anymore in this series.

This book is long. And im not saying the BOOK is long. I mean the STORY. Sure it has mysterious and sexy written but by the time you want them to giv the damn answer to the book it just doesnt happen. Does he know about her abilities? Why does she listen to her parents if they treat her like a teen? I mean just tell it already! I read it to pg 39. And when i said it is long i do men its LONG AND SLOW!!!! i do NOT reccommend this book.

First one in the series- cliff hanger. I probably would have skipped if I'd known that. I skipped alot through the book. Too maybe details just draggggggeeeeeddddd on.

I really liked the premise and the characters held my interest. The ending was quite abrupt and I am torn about whether to continue the series. Overall it is r,thought-provoking. But... it needs professional editing. Sometimes the details were excessive and overwhelming, yet uninformative. Othertimes it felt like the author just didn't bother "I can't describe it" is the description given several times. Also there are minor spelling, grammar and punctuation errors throughout.

This is the first book in the Parched Series. Clarity Parker has a great job and wants for nothing. That is until she meets Baron Ford. All through this book Clarity has to be patient to find out what is so special about her while everyone else seems to already know. She has to put her trust not only in Baron Ford but her Guardian, Viesel Egos. This is not your regular vampire story. This has twists and turns and gives you a new perspective about God and Adam and Eve. This book does not overwhelm you with the religious background but gives you just enough to understand how everything began. This is a good book and I will continue to follow the series

Worse book I have ever attempted to read! The story had no clear direction and the plot bordered on juvenile. I suffered through 50 pages before I finally gave it up. Don't waste your time on this one...it was boring and not worth the effort.

It just dragged on and on. I skipped several pages every few pages. It was written well but it just got boring and somewhat annoying.

This story was so ridiculously unbelievable, even for a paranormal, that I couldn't finish it. They ripped the idea off twilight of the vampire falling in love with the one person who has the blood he needs. Plus the insta love was unrealistic. They barely even talked first

A 150 page free book of earth, angels, vampires, and other unworldly creatures in the conflict of good, evil, and survival with love and sex, of course. An adult story because of sexual content. Not your average earth context, so if you are not accustomed to science fiction, you might find this a hard read. If you find this difficult, do not try Isaac Asimov or Carl Sagan. Does need editing but most FRE

This whole entire series is addicting. I must admit that the first book is not the best, but i encourage you to keep reading! Z.L. Arkadie will have you entralled in the story of these seven sisters and their Sellels! I cannot wait for the story to continue. I love book series in general and this one is definitely in my top 5 favorite of all time.
