About the Author
Raine Thomas is the award-winning author of bestselling Young Adult and New Adult fiction. Known for character-driven stories that inspire the imagination, Raine recently signed with multiple award-winning producer Chase Chenowith of Back Fence Productions to bring her popular Daughters of Saraqael trilogy to the big screen. She's a proud indie author who is living the dream.
Raine is a hopeless romantic with a background in the fields of mental health and wedding planning...two areas that intersect far more than one would think. Her years working with children and young adults with emotional and behavioral challenges inspired her to create protagonists who overcome their own conflicts. When she isn't writing or glued to e-mail or social networking sites, Raine can usually be found vacationing with her husband and daughter on one of Florida's beautiful beaches or crossing the border to visit with her Canadian friends and relatives.

What the hell are you doing reading the reviews. Buy it! But wait..... only if you've read the other books, because this is not a stand alone book. Jeeeze! You really need to start at 'Becoming.' That's where the magic starts.
The characters are so realistic, given us a real vibe for the world they live in. The plot over all is amazing.
The writing style is vivid and descriptive and enchanting.
Raine thomas has got me captivated from the first book and knowing that Gabriel and Amber are the parents of Clara Kate is like POOF mind blowing amazing!
She has a third series, Ascendant series, so I was excited thinking I would get more of those amazing characters and this world she created, but no, it's all new characters and I'm heartbroken and I want them back! I need CLOSURE.... #NerdGirlProblems
I feel like this Firstborn series moved too fast, I didn't get enough of my beloved sisters and their avowed, but their children are just as amazing, if not more. *Spoiler* Quincy and Sophia creep me out a bit at first, I mean, he delivered her and saw her as a baby and then...well, I got over it, I think..
The rest of it was amazing, I know I said that already, but seriously..I need more. Can we have some more novellas or something? I'm mourning the loss of the entire world that was created...What about some novellas (I detest novellas but I'm desperate here) of more of the elders finding their emotions, and Penelope and the story of the rogue mercesti group, how they came to be?
I was so pleased with how the trilogy wound out, and Clara Kate's love life was my favorite.
To be honest, I didn't love the first two the way I did the Daughters of Saraquel, but Clara Kate won me over.
If you're picky about writing style and the snobbish sort to demand perfection, then perhaps these books aren't for you (but why are you reading YA anyway?)
But if you enjoy a good plot driven story...enjoy All of Raine's work. I have. I read it in a day after all...the very day it came out :)
This series, like the Daughters of Seraquel, is a MUST READ!!
