Review

"O'Connor tackles important worldbuilding, while also kicking off the story with a bang."    - Publisher's Weekly 

From the Author

I started creating the plot for the Angelorum Twelve Chronicles and writing TRINITY STONES back in late 2009. At the time, paranormal romance / urban fantasy (adult & YA) happened to be the core of my reading list. Although I chose to write a series with paranormal or magical elements, my goal was to maintain a story in today's world without creating a wide gaping hole in the fabric of reality. 

The inspiration behind this book is a phenomena that I can only describe in this way: "One soul's promise ties it to another, defies both conscious logic and reason, and transcends time with a purity of heart in the highest form of love." 

Personally, I don't believe in coincidences but that free will gives us choices that lead us to our destiny. When I stumbled across an amazing website called Angelology, my story developed using angel lore as the seeds of creation for the rules of my world. Woven together, these elements of the soul and the presence of angels secretly living among us are the heart of Trinity Stones and the A12 series.

Now, onto Trinity Stones...

For Cara Collins, life in Manhattan isn't easy. Her boss is a misogynistic jerk and the love of her life, Dr. Kai Solomon, is married to someone else. Top that off with a creepy man in the subway and homeless woman on the street grabbing her and asking to be healed, and Cara's panic disorder is rearing its ugly head. It's her 27th birthday, just another day in her ordinary life--that is, until a mysterious letter appears from her long-dead grandmother, Hannah. It turns out Cara is part of a holy trinity that joins humans and angels to fight evil. Heaven and humanity are in danger, as the Dark Ones have been plotting to tip the scales in their favor using secretive genetic research. Cara must choose whether or not to accept her role as the First of the Twelve who will lead the final battle between good and evil.

Cara's Nephilim Guardian, Chamuel, understands that she is the one person he can't have as per the rules of the High Council of the Angelorum. Haunted by the past and under a self-imposed vow of celibacy for the last hundred years, he's not worried about his newest assignment . . . until he sees her. Chamuel must choose whether to follow his heart or the rules.

When the Dark Ones set a deadly trap for the Cara using Kai and his four year-old daughter, both Cara and Chamuel must make their choice--before evil decides for them. In doing so, Cara discovers it is not only her heart but also her destiny that is entwined with the two men in her life.

Trinity Stones is meant to capture the eternal struggle of good and evil and the occasional need to bend the rules for the most important force of all: love.

Trinity Stones is an adult Urban Fantasy (60%) / Paranormal Romance (40%) meant for audiences 18+ due to language and love scenes. Inspired by one of my favorite authors, JR Ward, Trinity Stones is told in 3rd person with multiple points of view to provide deeper character development as a foundation for the series.

Hopefully, my commentary provides some helpful information for your consideration. If you've read this far, thank you! If you decide to purchase Trinity Stones and read it, I give you my deepest gratitude...

I'm giving this 5 stars because this was one fast and thrilling, as well as super sexy, ride. If that's what you are looking for, this is it.

I received an advance copy of Trinity Stones for an honest review, and was a bit skeptical at first. Urban fantasy is not a genre I normally read. But I do love a good thriller and a hot romance once in a while, so I thought I'd give it a try. I was not disappointed.

I was immediately drawn to the young heroine Cara Collins who discovers to her dismay that she is destined to play a leading role in the fight between good and evil coming to a head in contemporary Manhattan. Initially resisting her destiny, she is pulled into the battle when the life of a close friend, who also is the lost love of her life, is threatened.

But things get even more complicated when she starts falling for the hunky guardian who is sworn to protect her. He, in turn, is struggling with his own lustful yearning for his young ward, despite a vow of celibacy, and being strictly forbidden from becoming romantically involved with her.

Add to the mix a despicably dastardly demon and his equally contemptible but gorgeous cohort, a fashionista BFF who wobbles to the rescue on stiletto heels, and the most adorable pooch ever, and what you have is a fun, smart, and thrilling adventure.

And did I mention this was hot? Oh, yes. Hot.

When the author asked me to read an early copy of her book, I jumped at the chance. The story’s quick pace and engaging characters made for an exciting read. Much in the way that watching Seinfeld was enjoyable because everyone has an Elaine or a Kramer in their life, the characters in this book seemed real – quite a feat for a novel filled with angels, myths, magical powers, and dastardly demons. I loved following Cara on her journey as she accepted her new responsibilities in the battle of good and evil. The good news for Cara is she is surrounded by old friends and new on this journey…. and one of these new friends is so hot that it’s hard to concentrate! It’s a page-turner and I can’t wait for the next one!

I originally signed up for this tour because I love paranormal romance, but because this one involved demons, angels and everything in between. For the second book in a row, I loved all of the characters. Cara is sadly still in love with Kai and she feels such a connection to him that nobody else understands. Even after he gets married and has a child with his wife, the feeling is mutual. Then all of a sudden everything changes because as it turns out, Cara is a millionaire with strings and her entire life changes in that she's a soul seeker. Not to mention? She's part of a trinity with her guardian and a messenger. She meets the messenger soon enough and they become fast friends. The guardian... well the guardian turns out to be really attractive Simon (also known as Chamuel) and he makes her lady party feel delicious. She doesn't know he's her guardian though and therein lies the big gasp. As it turns out? Guardians are expressly prohibited to feel any kind of romantical way towards their trinity let alone a different species. Oh yes, because gorgeous Simon is Nephil so he's a half human/half angel hybrid formed in an immaculate conception, and poor Cara is just a lame human.

And then all hell breaks loose and we get a really great ending and a ridiculous teaser for the next book! I knew this was the first in a series yet to come but I wasn't invested right off the back. Give me 10 chapters in (they are rather short) and I'm chomping at the bit for all of the next books. Also? As the first book in a series, I would like to think these are notoriously difficult to write because you have to give readers just enough information to keep them invested, but not too much where they can tell you where this series is going to go.

Friendship, secrets, forbidden love, betrayal, angels and evil... This book is a new genre for me. I found the characters to be genuine and either endearing or frightful. I couldn't help but get caught up in the twists and turns that 27 year old Cara faced throughout the book. Well written and well paced. A good read. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

I was given an advance copy of this book for review and after the first few chapters my thought was "What have I gotten myself in to?" There were many difficult names thrown right up front and I had no idea what was going on. And then I was hooked! The detail turned out to be very positive and made the story feel real. The author did a great job on background research so the story really flowed. . I felt the pull between good and evil expressed through the characters. There was plenty of meat to the story and it kept me completely involved - I even got up early a couple of mornings to see what was going to happen next. I came to care for Cara as if she was a longtime friend- and I absolutely LOVE the dog! I will definitely recommend this book to friends and I am eagerly awaiting the sequel.
