Does she believe what she finds out right away? Not so, for our heroine to be; as she has this stubborn streak a mile long of not wanting to believe all that she sees and discovers.
Oh, let's not forget about what the "gargoyles" really are. That sounds rather ambiguous at best, but that is because I do not want to provide any real spoilers about the book.
This is a must read new series for any who like to read. You will not be disappointed!!
I've been waiting for this novel since at least 2011, when Kimiko first started working on it. I'm an impatient man, and I think the wait was worth while. There were two minor technical questions that I had, which I passed on to her privately. They were almost insubstantial, and definitely didn't impact the story telling at all.
Reagan Fischer is a wounded warrior, a woman who depends on what she can see and touch to make sense of her world. Until, that is, what she sees starts to change (which takes place slightly before the novel begins). Once that happens, the world that she knows is tilted on it's head.
The storytelling is tight, and I was ever so grateful to see (or not, as the case may be) that the author didn't use the story as a setup for a sex scene, like so many authors these days do. That's not to say that there aren't moments of intense intimacy, because there are, but they are most certainly not romantic in nature. Reagan is able to be sexy without being a tramp. She's complicated, and conflicted, and an interesting character.
I think that the author did a phenomenal job on her first novel. I look forward to the second and subsequent ones!
My only complaint is that I wanted more story. It was a fast read, with good pacing, but I am a huge fan of epic stories. Kimiko, I hope that the Fates conspire to let you write Shattered faster than it took for Awakened. But it was worth the wait.
I went into this book knowing it had to do with angels and gargoyles. It sounded good, right up my alley as I love paranormal romances and urban fantasies. This one is firmly in the urban fantasy realm. There may be a potential love interest, but that isn't want this story was about.
No, this story was about Reagan and her ability to see what most people can't. Angels. Souls. Possessed people. Visions. Now, she sure as hell doesn't want to see any of this stuff. In fact, she's a non-believer who'd rather just walk away. Except she can't. A gargoyle is missing. They're used to house the souls of humans so foul they can't be allowed to reincarnate.
This book doesn't end on a cliffhanger although the epilogue has me crying for me. I want, no I need the next book in this series. I simply loved this book. The writing is fantastic and flowed so smoothly. The descriptions painted vivid pictures in my head. I did no work today once I started this book. Sorry work.
I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest opinion.
