About the Author

Nichole Chase is a daydreamer. No, really, just ask any of the math teachers that had the misfortune of seeing her name appear on their class schedule. For years she has had story lines and characters begging for attention, but she resolutely pushed them aside to focus on more normal (read, boring) jobs. Well, no longer! She is currently heeding the voices in her head and frantically writing their stories. Nichole resides in South Georgia with her husband, energetic toddler, three dogs, and two cats. When not devouring novels by the dozens, you may find her writing, painting, crafting, or chasing her daughter around the house while making monster noises.

Okay, I have to say this from the outset - it's kind of like, the elephant in the room. There has been an explosion of paranormal fiction in the young adult market to the point where, for me, it's almost too much. That said, I am still a huge sucker for the genre, in part because of my total Buffy fandom which still resonates from years ago (YES I ADMIT IT - I AM A BUFFY FANBOY) but also because, every now and then, a book will come along that offers something completely fresh and engaging. It may not be totally obvious what that 'something' is.

And this is indeed the case with author Nichole Chase's debut "Mortal Obligation". This first book in the Dark Betrayal triology (as evidenced by the title) is a considerable achievement for Nichole because she has in a number of subtle ways, introduced a resounding freshness and character to the genre which I think has been lacking in a lot of other titles of late.

Nichole Chase introduces us to Ree McKenna, a earnest and popular 17 year old at a cross road that is familiar to many of us. Approaching the end of high school she is looking towards a college future and has a creative mind and heart that will see her go far. Already, she has an artistic flair that befits someone much older and her job in an antiques shop no doubt fuels her love for all things arty. Unlike a lot of protagonists, Ree is less a loner and engages well within her peer group. She's popular and independent yet she is imbued with just the right amount of vulnerability that lends weight to the romantic threads of the story. In my mind Ree is the whole package, a gutsy young woman who is worldly and wise.

And because of the strength of Nichole's protagonist, Mortal Obligation's plot moves crackingly along.

Mortal Obligation is by far one of the best YA books i've read, ever! I loved all of the characters, the flirty moments, the action, and the humor. While other teenagers are worrying about mundane problems, Ree is tasked with the job of having to save the world from the Dark Ones, which are bad vampires who want to enslave the humans. I was so intertwined, I had to keep flipping the page to find out what happened. I love the chemistry between Ree, Roland, and Paden and the twist at the end of the story. I can't wait for the next installment in this series!! Highly recommended!

From the moment I picked this book up I was enthralled. I stayed up far too late only to wake up and begin reading again. If I were forced to think of something negative to say it would be that the characters never listened to me no matter how loud I shouted or that it ended. It is evident that Nichole Chase is a master storyteller and I look forward to her future endeavors, not to mention the rest of Ree's story. If you like supernatural beings, mythology, excitement, and romance, you will love Mortal Obligation!

This was only OK for me. It started off kinda like I might have missed a couple of chapters.(I didn't) And when everything started happening everyone seems to just accept it as if it was the norm and they already knew about the Dark Ones and Alastrania etc.(they didn't)
What pulls it up to 3 stars is it definitely picks up about half way through and I got a lot more invested in the characters. I'll keep an eye out for the sequel and see what happens but I won't be waiting with baited breath.

Mortal Obligation (The Dark Betrayal Trilogy)
This book was ok. As an adult I have read a lot of good YA novels but this one seemed to be for a very young audience. It was a slow moving story with a lot of boring details about training. The love triangle was more annoying than intriguing. I don't really care who she ends up with. The thing about a lot of teen heroines is that all hell is breaking loose and their concern is does he like me as much as I like him. Then they have a tantrum about it. I don't plan on buying the sequel.

Mortal Obligation is a fast-paced story of Ree who's teenage life is thrown into a race to save humanity against the Dark Ones. Nichole Chase has a very captivating writing style which brings the reader in and keeps them turning each page until the end.

God must've realized how crappy my day was yesterday because he finally gifted me enough time to sit down and finish Nichole Chase's Mortal Obligation. This book was truly wonderful. The cast is big, but they are fleshed out and well written.

I love that Ree isn't your average high school girl. She's sort of awkward and shy. Mrs. Chase does this character a great honor by not allowing her personality quirks to disappear the moment she discovers she's "special."

Paden is a moral guy that is kind, warm, caring and good natured. His relationship with Ree is sweet. You feel for him through out the entire book, but you also empathize with Ree's frustration. Their relationship is real, honest and builds at exactly the right pace.

Roland. Enough said. He manages to steal every scene whether by accident or intention, and his presence in this book, in Ree's life, is undeniable. I am uber impressed at how ingrained his personality becamse with such an airy backstory. That is NOT a criticism on Mrs. Chase. In fact, quite the opposite. The way Roland is presented works for him. It woks so well that I'm totally Team Roland forever.

Bryce was another character that stuck out for me. I don't know. Maybe I'm a head case here, but he stole the show in the car scene. Don't get me wrong. Everybody else was present and accounted for, but until Roland was introduced I kind thought...huh...Bryce is a strong, bad ass character. He could be a second love interest for Ree. I know he had a girlfriend already and blah, blah, blah, (lol) but when a character has such overwhelming stage presence the reader automatically wonders hmm? What bigger role might he/she play? Good job, Mrs. Chase. Very good job.

Some other noteworthy events in this novel: the twist.
