“Lead us not into temptation, deliver us from evil.”
Words that ring true for seventeen-year-old Saydi Gardiner upon discovering her ancestry. But if she has doubts, further confirmation is forthcoming and it comes in the form of a wickedly gorgeous Nathanael Braxton, when he steals her heart and cuddles into her sole – the last place the boy should be.
Nineteen-year-old Nathanael’s unrelenting good looks aren’t the only thing that make him dangerous – and he knows it! However, his caring human side struggles with a loyalty – a loyalty that binds him to the hunt for the soul that will give his family the power they seek. There’s only one problem: When he finds her, Nathanael falls in love with his prey – Saydi.
To be honest, when I first started this book, I was extremely disappointed in it. To me, it felt like the story was moving way too slowly, and that there was a lot of information added to the story that didn’t make sense to me.
I felt like the characters were all OVERALY described, which is something that I just don’t personally like. Everything in this book was extremely described. While I do like it when the author thinks to describe things, there is such a thing as too much information. There were times that all the extra information that was given, actually seemed to get in the way of the story.
But as I got further along into it, I can say that I was sucked into the world that the author has created. I couldn’t put the book down even when I needed to. The twists and turns that were taking place during the whole course of everything were just amazing. They certainly did keep me on my toes, and kept me drawn into the story.
Overall, I do think that if the author releases another book like this one, I will be sure to check it out!
C. Elizabeth lives in St. Albert, Alberta, Canada and during her short writing career she’s learned a lot about herself, sometimes to the point that she wonders how the heck she got this far in life and know so little about herself.
For the majority of her life she dabbled in many things, such as drawing, photography, sewing, only to find that after a while, she would lose interest, but writing is a different story — it found her and continues to be an addiction, as well as a most wonderful, incredible passion. Not only does she write novels, but she does whatever she can to hone her
craft. Such as attending the New York Pitch Conference, seminars and the like, as well, she writes for online magazines on the topic of… you guessed it, writing.
Her latest book is the YA paranormal romance, Soul Control.
