About the Author
Nina has always been creative, be it art, theatre, film – anything but singing...she stresses that that is something you don't want to hear! She earned her bachelor’s degree in Communication and Theatre Arts with a minor in Military Science from Eastern Michigan University where she spent most of her time either on stage, rappelling down buildings, or working one of three jobs. After college she moved to Los Angeles like so many other starry eyed actors in pursuit of fame and fortune in tinsel-town. While there, she worked to pay the bills but her love was always acting. She was able to achieve some level of success, mostly in commercials and independent films, but she considers those experiences as some of the best in her life. After some major life changes, she self-published her first book entitled PRIVATE WORDS UNSPOKEN, a compilation of poetry. Since then, her literary interest have grown and her storytelling ability has improved. She has done everything from office administration, to business development, to being the Director of a private preschool. She has jumped out of a C130 aircraft, fired a M16 machine gun, and given birth – TWICE! But she always returns to her art. Though she’ll forever be a Michigan girl at heart, she now lives in the South where she is married with two wonderful children. If she isn’t working on her latest story you can find her lounging with a good book, playing with her kids, or indulging in her unhealthy addiction to Starbucks coffee.

This book was given to me as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This third (final?) installment of the Blood Angel series is once again looking at the transformation of Alee (Aleerah), the only living dhampir. It continues after her transition back into high school, learning the ropes of a vampire, the nature of being a witch, the betrayal of the Underground and the love dichotomy she finds herself in.
The critical points
Writing: Nina's writing has progressively improved throughout the series and by this point, she has started to master the craft. Weaving in the imagery and emotions of her characters. There were some misspellings here and there, giving the teeny ding on the writing alone.
Story: This story starts off on the fast track and very rarely slows down. The build up over the series has led to this moment of turmoil, transformation and transcendence. Nina's work on the first two novels set the stage for this wonderful and fast-paced supernatural showdown. There were a few parts in the end that threw me. *SPOILER* When the Founders battle started happening, I felt there was little build up to making them the antagonist, so it felt a tad closed off and ended abruptly. That took a bit of the story down, but in all, it was a wonderful ride seeing the characters grow aside the writer herself.
Characters: Each character has grown into their element from the first novel to this last one. Alee has grown into the confident yet hesitant teen, pairing along with her new vampire feelings she tries to maintain. The affections of Jathan to Damian to Kyle keeps the temperature always on high.
Appearance: I have loved Nina's book covers on all her books. This last one just didn't stay par with the others. It's hard to match perfection three times in a row. I think if there was something more in the eyes portraying revenge as the title, I'd probably have given it a straight five.
Where to start...Me, as a reader, I love stories with a message that can be given or used in the real world. This story does that for me and I'll explain as this review progresses.
This is the third and final story for the Blood Angel series. Though I'm sadden that the series has been finalized, the author has really outdone herself with this story.
The pace of this story was fast and steady throughout this story. Many twists and turns were presented that kept my curiosity piqued and when truths and secrets were revealed, I was simply shocked because I had no idea or inkling that these would occur. That in itself makes this a perfect story/ending for me.
The characters from each book continued to grow as the story enfolded and this story was no exception. IMO, the message is this..In society, as a whole, we've grown to like "routine" versus "change". Change can be perceived as being good or bad, depending on how it's presented and efforts to make it easier to be introduced, as well as, what it means for the people. At the conclusion, "Unity" is the key to make changes possible for all those involved.
The author's "easy to read" talent is very evident during this story, which IMO, grabs the reader's attention. It's definitely a roller coaster ride when the truths and secrets are revealed.
This story contains many facets that a lot of readers will enjoy: romance, suspense, intrigue, murder, betrayal, loyalty, forgiveness and lots of action. These components are quite realistic throughout the story and helps define each of the characters and their roles, to which they played amazingly thus making this the best book of the series.
This conclusion has started where the second book "Beginnings" ended, so it want leave you missing anything.
I would recommend to readers to read the first book "Awaken", and follow story with the other books. Questions will follow each story, but will all be answered as each book progresses to the reader's satisfaction.
I just hope the author will continue another trilogy/series with characters from this series. (Hint to author: Phoebe needs her own...)
I give my rating.....5 stars.
Personal message to author....You really outdone yourself with this story...Simply amazing..Can't wait to read future stories..Best Wishes.....
