Danielle Harding writes so beautifully.
If you liked the Twilight series, then you'll definitely LOVE this book because it's even better!
Her writing drew me into this story and kept me enthralled to the end.

I have a confession. Before reading Wormwood, I was not a huge fan of either post-apocalypse and/or angel storylines. But I heard so many wonderful things about this book that I had to put aside my previous likes and dislikes and give this one a go. And boy am I glad that I did! I cannot say enough about Wormwood. D.H. Nevins did a beautiful job setting up this story to feel like you are right there with Kali as the apocalypse is happening. She is a really strong, independent chick who was put in the middle of a horrible disaster. When she meets Tiamat, all Hell breaks loose. You really feel the fact that he is not completely human, in that he has been compelled to end the world as we know it. He is relentless in reaching this goal, even knowing how much it will devastate Kali. His motivations are not clear throughout, which I though just added to the mystery of the story. This is a sad book, but chock full of wonderful imagery, complex characters and a thrilling love story, to boot. What's not to like? I cannot wait to read the next book in this series (which D.H. Nevins tells me will be a trilogy).

Sometimes a reviewer has a book submitted, and stares at the title, and has absolutely no idea where this will take them. Many look their books titles up on Amazon or Goodreads to not only read the cover blurbs, but read other reviewer ratings. I just like to be surprised, and yep what a pleasant surprise was Wormwood written by D.H. Nevins was.

We meet Kali Michaels, who is a young guide at the Pinecrest National Forest while she attends college. Her group at this time is a corporate one on a team building retreat. Occasionally, some member of the group gets out of line and bingo, one of the team, is really getting on her nerves. It will be the last night camping with them; heading home in the morning. Kali sets them up with instructions for the night and pitches her tent further from them taking a break wandering off to Lookout Peak to be alone. It is there she meets a young man, appearing to be contemplating jumping. He looks sad, as she makes small talk getting him to move away from the edge. His name is Tiamat.

It is now ten years later, and Kali is out on a walk and comes upon Tiamat at Lookout Peak. His arms are out stretched, and as she watches him standing there the earth starts to shake, large crevices open, and trees and boulders fall into giant holes and life as we know it ends.

From their conversation we learn Tiamat has actually caused the earth and all on it to die. He and one hundred of his brothers called Nephilim which are half human/half angel sent from God to do this destruction. Tiamat is horrified at what he is tasked to do, and the relationship between possibly killing Kali and protecting her becomes the focal point of this story.

D.H. Nevins has used Kali Michaels as her voice, as we watch the world end.

So I received this book from the Author as a gift for winning a contest on facebook. When I received the book I was thrilled because I had read the blurb. D.H. Nevins was a little worried that I wouldn't enjoy her book due to my not liking Dystopians. But while this book is "technically" a dystopian novel it is so much more than that.

I started reading this book and immediately got sucked into the story. I fell for Kali immediately, she seemed so down to earth, so nice and so very young, and she actually reminded me of my daughters. Then we meet up with him *key sound effects* and all Hell figuratively and literally breaks loose. Tiamat is a Nephilim sent by god to destroy all of humanity and send them for their final judgement. *see not a dystopian simply an end of world because God did it story*...

Um where was I? Oh right, I don't want to give away any spoilers because I insist you go get this fabulous book. After all who can possibly say no to angels and demons? Oh didn't I mention there is a demon? There is! And the twists that this book takes are going to make you stay up late into the wee hours of the morning reading to find out what happens next. I know I stayed up until 1 in the morning just to get to the end and then nearly cry because it was over. But I know book 2 will be out early next year and I'll be first in line to grab that so I can continue on this wonderful Journey with Kali.

Before I forget, the character creation in this book is great. Kali is likeable and quite a strongly written female and Tiamat is so turned around because of his feelings for Kali that you almost laugh at his stupidity, but in a good way.

100 Nephilim, super powerful half human half angels beings, are given the task to clean the earth of all human life. It is judgment day, and the Nephilim are tasked with returning all humans to their spiritual forms. Kali, in an attempt to escape the devastation, runs a trail to the top of a cliff where she finds Tiamat, someone she met 10 years prior. Tiamat, is actually one of the Nephilim who has destroyed her world and even killed her father. Tiamat struggles with his mission because he has a strong connection to the young woman named Kali. Kali's survival is dependant on the one responsible for the totally oblieration of her world, she must learn to trust him even though he might have her own destruction in his plans.

Favorite Quote Tiamat - "Compared to tonight, I feel like I have been half-alive the entire time I've exsisted."

Wormwood is a dark and fantastic tale. Wormwood has dazzling plot twist and turns that will captivate any reader, making it impossible to put this book down. The lines will be blurred between good and evil, truth and lies, and hero and antagonist. When I finished Wormwood, I closed the book with a WOW on my lips. Extraordinary story telling D. H. Nevins, you blew me away. There is so much to say about this book but I don't want to give anything away. Absolutely 5 stars.

I won this copy of Wormwood from Sherry at Fundamental Book Blog and D. H. Nevins, I am giving my honest review.
