I downloaded this book free and absolutly fell in love. Next thing I knew I was getting the box set 1-3 including the novella. I finished books 1-4 and novella in 4 days. Fell in love with every character and the whole story line. Can not wait until 08/ 16th. ( )

Got tired of all the drama, Alexis is not even a teenager. She is nineteen! He also behaves very much like Edward, in an emotionally immature, I-want-to-kill-you, but-I-love-you way. DNF

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I was honestly surprised by this writer and her paranormal world which existed on the premise of good and evil, Amadis and Deamoni, God and satan, This was an interesting perspective together with a griping storyline. I enjoyed watching the characters develop and the excitement and can't wait to see what happens in the next book of the series. I wasn't aware of Ms Cook but her writing and imagination has definitely caught my attention. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. I enjoy books where the author tells a story that doesn't sound like something I read somewhere else, and I can never remember reading anything like this. I'll have to look into book 2. ( )

This book helped me to escape from the real world and for that I am greatful. I couldn't put it down, I wanted to know what was going to happen next.

Alexis is a 19 year old who says that her mother doesn't age. She has grown up without a father and has had to move frequently over the years.

As the story progresses you learn that Alexis is not a normal young adult, she is special and she has an uncanny ability to tell between good and evil. Her romance develops with a tall dark and handsome stranger. She has never felt like a normal girl, she didn't have boyfriends and due to her special abilities she was called a freak. The love that Alexis and Tristan share can be felt when you read the story.

Alexis's mother has withheld information about Alexis's past and her abilities, slowly her past and future are being revealed to her. I cannot say much without being a spoiler.

The writing in this book is inspiring. Kristie Cook is able to draw in the reader and keep your interest. It was easy to forget about the real world and stay with this book. ( )

Book description
Her life is full of promise…but not all promises can be kept.

When Alexis Ames is attacked by creatures that can’t be real, she decides it’s time she learns who she really is, with or without the help of her mother, who guards their family’s secrets closely. After meeting the inhumanly attractive, multi-talented Tristan Knight, however, Alexis retreats behind her façade of normalcy…until she discovers he’s not exactly normal either. Then their secrets begin to unravel.

Their union brings hope and promise to her family’s secret society, the Angels’ army, and to the future of mankind. But it also incites a dangerous pursuit by the enemy – Satan’s minions and Tristan’s creators. After all, Alexis and Tristan are a match made in Heaven and in Hell.
