The romance fiction is always the same (beautiful girl, studly handsome guy and they live happily ever after) but I didn't mind this one because you were hoping that everything would be okay. The female lead is very down to earth and spunky and goes toe to toe with him--I love that she isn't wimpy and weak. I hate those types of females. I love the references to God and how He helps the character through her rough periods; the messages here were just enough and flowed seamlessly with the story.
Treat yourself to a very exciting and wonderful experience, I highly recommend it.
I highly recommend "Descended" by Dana Pratola.
The hero, Jett is rather swoon worthy: tall, handsome, mysterious, rescues damsels in distress.
Haven, the heroine is self assured, talented and good at keeping Jett on his toes.
Dana is always great at delivering tension in a story, and this one did not disappoint! Heated tension between Jett and Haven, curiosity at what exactly Jett is, and his past is, the interactions with the other people in the story... all these fuel an interesting page turning story.
Only problem... waiting for Dana Pratola to publish her next book!
Pratola keeps up the suspense with a clever mockery of the tabloid mentality we all fall into sometimes. Jett suffers in the press and so does artist Haven when she becomes his grandmother's protege. But Haven has a bit of a tabloid view as looks at the surface of things and making judgments. She lets her emotions make decisions for her brain. She hates abuse but it colors her objectivity and keeps her from appreciating Jett's potential almost to the end of the book.
Jett has a sort of tabloid view of God. He's a genius who devours language-learning, technology development and every kind of knowledge but waits years before studying and trying to absorb the truth about his grandmother's and Haven's faith in God. He's an excellent picture of the modern intellectual who thinks he knows it all but wants to stick to shallow thinking about his Creator.
It was a slow build that felt monotonous, but it really wasn't. It was slow and the climax was tame, but by the time it's over you realize Dana Pratola has made you feel. It was all too realistic and I think that's what made it feel monotonous. When I read I don't expect to read a book that feels like reality, yes I hope to be able to relate to the characters, but I always expect that little bit of unrealistic-ness to come through. The book does have a paranormal element to it, but Dana Pratola even made that feel normal.
The romance between Jett and Haven was phenomenal. This is a clean book, but it does talk about wanting to be with the other. The sexual tension was palpable!!! I was completely intrigued with Jett's paranormal side. I kept wanting to know more and more, which is what had me turning the pages. Plus, what he does with his gifts was interesting and tied in wonderfully with the book. I was surprised by the religious element to the book. I have never read a Dana Pratola novel so I didn't know she wrote Christian Fiction. I thought it was an interesting view and very tastefully done. If you don't like hearing about God then I advise you to read this novel with an open mind. It's too good to tell you not to read just take note that it is Christian Fiction.
This book has rocked me to my core. I don't know how I've never heard of Dana Pratola because she is fantastic. If you haven't read this series I highly, highly recommend you pick it up be on your way to your very own book hangover.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
