QUOTES FROM THE BOOK
__________________________

"I would rather die than be like them. From that day forward, I was no longer a witch."
Eve

"I can't stand to see your potential wasted. You're like a thoroughbred stallion that's never run a race. I must know what you're capable of."
Boaz

"I avoided his eyes, instead staring beyond to envious faces. The song ended and another began, a bitter harmony of plucked violins and sobbing French horns. It was a torturous melody -- one that should be played for the dead, not the living."
Eve 

"My head spun. The circular motion of his thumb on the sensitive part of my wrist made me lightheaded as if I'd had too much to drink."
Eve

"Let me make this perfectly clear." I pointed my finger at his chest. "You will never have any part of me."


"But, my love, I already have," he said, licking his lips."
Eve & Boaz

"My gaze met his. A power, dark and alluring, swirled in his pupils until his eyes were entirely black. My heart leapt in anticipation. It was right there--a cure for my pain."
Eve 

"Power is a dangerous thing."
Lucien

"True happiness and pure, unselfish love is only meant for those who are willing to sacrifice all that they have for it. You will taste bitterness before you taste joy."
Charlie

    This is one of those rare books that captures me from the very first moment. The first scene was all it took, and I was in love. I couldn't book this book down! And I was surprised by how much doubt I had while reading, hoping for the best, suspicious of the worst. The story has takes some unique turns that ultimately set this story up as an epic paranormal romance.

    *I don't want to give spoilers, but I do want to say if you're a fan of Jessica Jones, there are aspects of this story that will definitely appeal to you, character-wise*

    Okay, that said. It's REALLY hard to review this story with the details without giving spoilers, so I'll just give a quick overview of what I can, hopefully without giving any spoilers. Early on, we're introduced to what we believe to be the villains of the story, Eve's parents. I have to say this scene is pretty crucial to developing Eve's potential as a human being, because her dark turns later in the story would otherwise make her unlikable; instead, you root for her the whole way.

    Boaz comes along just in time to stop her parents from going too far in their torture of Eve (really gives child abuse a new meaning). He literally saves her life. After that, however, Eve becomes self-destructive and dark in her choices. Again, I don't want to give too many spoilers, but it really takes a lot for her to break away from because the more she uses magic, the darker she becomes.

    Along the way, I held out hope for things I should not have hoped for. Rachel McClellan did a fantastic job creating multifaceted heros. People who could be the hero one day, and the villain the next. Ultimately, this is a story about overcoming addictions (so isn't it ironic that I became addicted to reading it!

    This is a paranormal story with elements of horror-the violence is not suitable for younger readers.

    Eve is watching her parents torture an innocent woman. This is not the first time she has seen them torture someone. As the daughter of some of the world's most powerful and evil witches, she is no stranger to their callous acts; not only on others but on herself-and she wants no part of the lifestyle. After rejecting her powers for years, she is now of marriage age and is introduced to Boaz-an influential vampire who wishes to woo her with her parent's consent. He introduces her to his world of the night, but still she resists the allure of magic. Will Boaz's subtle influence unleash the dark side of her nature that she never wished to see?

    The story started with great promise to me, but Eve's character, even for a paranormal story, switched between light and dark too quickly considering all that she had been through and managed to resist. The violence in the torture scenes was definitely graphic and if her mind didn't snap during this I am surprised anything could make her turn. The rivalry between the strong witch families was a good subplot and the introduction of Lucian and his tormented secrets makes for a great lead into the next book in the series. Again grammar and punctuation errors reared their ugly heads-it really is essential to ensure a good editor and proofreader deal with the work before publication.

    The characters worked well in the story and there were some definite cheers when some of them met untimely demises. Overall a good read but not captivating enough to buy the next book in the series.

    ~ ARC provided from Author in exchange for honest review ~
    This is not a standalone novel and does end on a cliffhanger. The second book in the series is called The Devil’s Angel.

    Eve is a beaten, abused young woman who we find out early on is a witch. She was bred from two very powerful witch families as a way to calm the feud and to vie for world domination. Her parents are Erik and Sable, who treat her as a means to an end and try to have her killed because she refuses to embrace her magic. Boaz (a vampire) shows up and she thinks she loves him, but then we sees his real motives, eventually. I really really didn’t like Eve in the beginning of this book. She seemed so weak and just stupid. I understand she had this horrible childhood, but I mean come on. The way she trusts certain people and then it blows up in her face and then she turns around and trusts them again, made me want to quit reading.

    I was so confused until I got to Chapter 19. It’s funny because the first sentence of that chapter is “I changed.” Actually, I am not sure that is a sentence, but you catch my drift. After that point, I really started to catch on and got hooked to the book. You could see the back-story from the first part and in some cases it was necessary. I am excited to see what happens to Charlie (a friend), Lucian (important vampire) and Henry (Vampire, leader of the Deific, good people). I will say, I am frustrated with the Lucian situation because I feel like she is being stupid again especially since he basically told her when he saved her twice, how she can find him because of what draws him to her. That being said, I am excited to read the second installment.
