A GREAT Series for Paranormal Readers!!!
on September 21, 2012
I was so excited to see a cheap series that contained 3 books. I wasn't sure if I was going to like the series. I downloaded the first book Fallen Star for free on Amazon, so I figured I would read it then download the three pack if I liked it. I did not just like it I loved it!!! As soon as I started book 2 I had to download book 4 to ensure I could read the whole series in a row. I read quickly so I went through the whole series pretty quick. I had a hard time putting it down. I have read all kinds of paranormal books, but these are some of my favorites!! Most authors I have read so far have a few abnormal species in their books (like wolves and vampires), but I have never read a book with so many different kinds of characters. Sorenson's story includes: vampires, sprites, faeries, death walkers, keepers, forseers, banshees, ghosts, witches, black angels, and more!!! It was great to ses so many different types of characters rather than just two or three. There were no werewolves either. I found that interesting. I loved the characters, and was so glad to hear that Sorenson wrote another series that is a spin off of this one. That is great! I am not done reading about Gemma and Alex. I absolutely love Laylen (the vampire) he sounds cute! I just loved every second of this book. I have found that a lot of the cheaper paranormal books are not that great. I guess when I started this series I had low expectations, but boy was I wrong. I went and downloaded all the first books in Sorenson's other series. She has a new one coming up in October too! I love to read several books from good writers! As I mentioned I loved the diversity in her book. I loved the star power that is the most important aspect of the entire book. The author did a great job of including all these different types of characters without making it sound cheesy and silly. I really really liked this whole series. I suggest that anyone who reads books 1-3 in this special offer, that they immediately get book 4. You cannot just read the first three books, you got to see how it ends! I think the ending is great! I hate reading a series and then find out that I dislike the ending of the final book. The whole series seems to suffer when the final book doesn't end right. The ending of each book had me super excited to move on to the next. I could read nothing else until I finished these books. Now I have 3 other series by Sorenson to read! Like I said, I love discovering a new author. I plan on reading all of her books. I just loved the characters and the storyline. It was so original and refreshing. It wasn't the same old plot that every young adult author has written about. I love how unique this books and series are!
