When Hannah Sawyer dropped out of college after losing her scholarship she spent five years weaning herself of alpha males and alcohol, but when she decides to return to finish her degree she finds those things rolled into one in the intoxicating blue eyes of fellow non-traditional student Daniel Keith.
What she soon learns is that her newfound addiction to Daniel impairs her judgment beyond any mixed drink a frat boy could have handed her. She should have left when he cut his arm with a car key to show her his white blood. Or when he had a run-in with a dark angel on one of their dates. But Hannah stays, entranced by this man who remains a mystery to her.
Who or what is Daniel? And why does the small town of Spring Hill, Tennessee seem to summon his enemies? As romance lures Hannah further into a shadowy world most people never see, she realizes she’s gotten herself in deeper than she knew possible. And this time there’s no option of dropping out.
Overall, this book will drop your jaws! The story itself unravels through many layers of meaning, and for the thinking person, this intellectual aspect of the story is a huge come-on. Wilson is not only a skillful storyteller, he also knows how to conjure imagery that compels you to imagine the Hollywood movie version of this novel--many scenes are breathtakingly visual, and I would love to see them on the big screen. Highly recommended! -New York Book Pundit
I love, Love, LOVED it! The story was well plotted and I especially enjoyed the fast pace of the book and the twist and turns of the story. -Orchard Book Club
Lee Wilson’s The Last Hybrid: Bloodline of Angels blew my mind! It’s very well written, it has a lot of twists that will leave your eyebrows raising, and has an interesting plot. When I was reading the first page, I already knew that this one is going to be one of my favorites. The plot is original and just plain amazing inside and out. It’s a new way to read about angels and other paranormal creatures. If you’re up for an action packed, fast paced and a fresh paranormal story, then this book is for you. -Little Book Star
The writing is crisp and eager, as is the dialog, which is often punchy and quick witted. I really enjoyed the flirtatious verbal rants between Daniel and Hannah - lead characters. Both showed tendencies to keep their relationship playful and free, with real passion brimming slowly beneath the surface. This tease yet feisty touches is classic NA (New Adult) and what sets it apart from mere young adult literature. There is a fine line between the two and in this case the line was walked carefully and eloquently, shown through gentle embraces as well as subtle nuances that upped the heat - all tastefully done. -Writer's Alley
Intensely dark with a clever blend of twists and turns. The mixture of characters builds fascinating chaos amidst young romance. I couldn't put it down! -John Carroll, Director, Masters of the Universe: The Fountain of Life
As the little girl was rescued after falling from a metaphorical tree of life into thin ice, I was intrigued. The story continued to reveal itself in layers with such depth, each time inspiring my imagination to go further... -Ava Leigh Stewart, Director, Art West Films and former contributor for CNN
I was driven from page to page by an adrenaline rush to see what or who might be lurking around the next corner! The characters are boldly and passionately crafted! -Alan Dysert, Former star of ABC's All My Children and People Magazine cover personality

Lee has also ghost written for celebrities and authors in magazines and books. If you would've told him in high school that he'd grow up to be an author, he probably would've laughed at you.

Teasing Mystery and Passion Collide Enter the energetic world of the twenty-somethings, filled with teasing, mystery, passion...and in this case, a world most cannot see yet has touch every life since the beginning of time. Prologues are elements of a story that I can live with, but also live without. It all depends on the story. In this story, a prologue was used to capture attention and tease the reader to piece together what could possibly follow. It did its job - I wanted to read on and did. From the onset, I felt a mature voice telling the story, which added stability to the somewhat chaotic and tumultuous age of new adult material. Clues of the everlasting yet unseen world to most humans dropped subtly before me as I read, working their magic to add intrigue and a need to discover what happened next. Odd glances or gestures by certain characters filtered in more clues about the underlining elements brewing just below the surface of what could be seen. The concept of fallen angels or them being referred as vampires is nothing new; however, Wilson adds a unique twist to their 'becoming', which flavor the world created - as well as the world the reader begins to foresee evolving. Relationships complicated this already troubled hidden world of angels and rebels (angels), who want to forge their own path. As Daniel and Hannah, along with most of their friends, sink deeper into prophecies and Daniel's true heritage, dangerous bargains are offered; some made, while others are refused, leaving the reader parched as the final few chapters approach and hoping for the thirst to be quenched. The writing is crisp and eager, as is the dialog, which is often punchy and quick witted. I really enjoyed the flirtatious verbal rants between Daniel and Hannah - lead characters. Both showed tendencies to keep their relationship playful and free, with real passion brimming slowly beneath the surface. This tease yet feisty touches is classic NA and what sets it apart from mere young adult literature. There is a fine line between the two and in this case the line was walked carefully and eloquently, shown through gentle embraces as well as subtle nuances that upped the heat - all tastefully done. Another element that was fully NA was the sense of dipping deeper into the emotional entanglements of the characters. Whether characters one on one or a multitude, the reader is given full knowledge that the characters are in their real world, making real decisions for themselves. My only negative thought about the story was my confusion because of a few underdeveloped elements like those explaining the human - hybrid (half/angel) - angel - vampire (dark angel) relationships. In defense, there was a ton to explain. Overall, it was well written, described, and delivered. I'd recommend this book to any paranormal or angel enthusiast, romance lover, and even physical fight scene admirer-due to a few of Daniel's impressive fight scenes-of the upper teen, college, or adult age. Oh, and also for any sequel lovers because there will be a Book II to this book! I will definitely read the next book. I need to find out what happens to Daniel and Hannah.
“The Last Hybrid: Bloodline of Angels” is an exciting, creative paranormal romance that’s also very well-written. Hannah Sawyer has been working at the Waffle Shack for five years when she gets in a car wreck and realizes she wants more out of life—she wants to return to college. Hannah quickly makes friends with the RA, Erika, and her boyfriend Anthony; when Hannah passes out in the parking lot she also meets Daniel, who carries her inside. She and Daniel are drawn to one another, despite the fact that Daniel has a secret that might knock her off of her college success track—he’s a Nephilim, half-angel and half-human. The dark angels want him to join them, and his best friend is a vampire. I’d recommend this novel to readers who enjoy paranormal romance and are looking for an addition to the genre that covers new territory. Daniel is different from other male leads in the genre, in that he’s not dark, brooding, and dangerous—he’s a good guy, trying to do what’s right, and he just happens to have powers. Hannah is also strong and capable, willing to think on her own and take care of herself; the supporting characters also come alive to make a cast of characters you really care about and are invested in. Looking forward to the sequel.
Lee Wilson has created a captivating world where angels are amongst us, as are their fallen dark counterparts who are known as vampires. Daniel and Hannah were a really hot couple, and although their attraction was quick, it is held together by their strong feelings. Their relationship grows on a believable level as Hannah then finds out his secret and herself in the middle of a struggle for power between two supernatural forces. With suspense, romance, new adult angst and a gripping plot, 'The Last Hybrid: Bloodline of Angels' is a great book for paranormal fans and anyone who enjoyed the 'Twilight' series. I look forward to reading the sequel!
The Last Hybrid was one of the most exciting books I have read in a long time. I could not put it down. I wanted to continue reading to find out what would happen on every page. It would be hard to label this book in one category because it was packed full of romance, mystery, thrill horror. It is a great read. Can't wait for the upcoming books in this series.
Before you read this review, keep in mind that this is coming from someone who is NOT a big fan of paranormal books. Lee Wilson’s The Last Hybrid: Bloodline of Angels blew my mind! It’s very well written, it has A LOT of twists that will leave your eyebrows raising, and has an interesting plot. When I was reading the first page, I already knew that this one is going to be one of my favorites. The prologue was really intriguing and a bit scary which made me keep on reading. It is written in 3rd person point of view and focuses on our protagonist, Hannah. She comes back once again to college in Tennessee, hoping that she’ll do much better in school. She ends up friending Erika, Anthony (Erika’s boyfriend) and Daniel. Unlike male protagonists in paranormal books, Daniel didn’t have that mysterious vibe which I LOVE about him. I really liked Erika’s character the most because she was the most realistic one and was funny at times. I love the relationship she shares with Anthony and how she dealt with the obstacles that they faced. Overall, the characters were well thought of although sometimes I think Daniel can be a bit of a douche. There is also love triangle which plays a big part in the plot so I was more than fine with that. This is also the first time where I was eager to know on who Daniel will end up with (Hannah or Natalie which is Daniel’s best friend since birth). I honestly don’t care about who ends up with who when I read, but I was really invested on the romance on this one. There is seriously TONS of mystery and twists & turns from start to finish when you read this book. It seems like by reading the summary, it sounds like every other paranormal books, BUT it’s not. There’s MORE to it which surprised me! It will leave you at the edge of your seat and wanting for more. The plot is original and just plain amazing inside and out. Aren’t you already intrigued just by looking at the cover? It’s a new way to read about angels and other paranormal creatures. If you’re up for an action packed, fast paced and a fresh paranormal story, then this book is for you. I recommend Lee’s novel to everyone, especially if you’re a sucker for paranormal books (or not ;) ).
This novel is very engaging right from the beginning. The characters are well written and there is an easy flow as one follows their activities. There is a definite romantic element that I found appealing. I'm looking forward to the next novel in the series.
