To be honest I didn't have high hopes for this series. Reason being that I was so attached to the Revalation Series and its characters that I didn't think this new generation (the children of Rev Series) could messure up. I could not have been more wrong. Author Randi Cooley Wilson talent as a writer continues to astound me. Such a talent story teller. She emurses you into her story with her captivating driscriptions. She leaves you hanging on every word she writes. While reading I found my self laughing out loud, lots of yelling, agitated pacing, heart hurting, forgetting to breath, relief, and had my heart broken.
Anyways, Vernal is the next generation of gargoyle protectors that we first met in Revalation seris. While it is not necessary to have read Rev Series first, you would be missing out on an epic read. This story follows Serena and Tristan. They have an amazing chemistry together and are awesome charecters as individuals. In this series Wilson introduces us to a whole new world, it's problems and the effects it has on Tristan and Serena. In addition to all this excitement, the Rev Series gang makes numerous appearances throughout!
This is a series so you will be waiting for more of this delicious story. It's so good it's worth the wait!
I have to give the author (Randi Cooley Wilson) major credit, her writing has improved immensely over time. I tried the first book of her Revelation series a while back and didn't love it, although I am going to try it again, but this series has started off so much stronger. When I started the book I was skeptical- I was afraid that the romance would be too insta-love or twilight like, but as I kept reading I realized I was wrong. I didn't even know this series was a spinoff of the Revelation series or that it was the same author until after I was done with this book. The chemistry between our heroine Serena and Tristan is on point and who doesn't like a forbidden love story? Serena is funny and free spirited- she resents that she has a predetermined destiny and wants to be free to choose the direction her life takes. When she meets Tristan he is a mystery that gradually unfolds. The gargoyle mythology is interesting and if you're a fan of the Revelation series some of those characters appear in a secondary capacity in this series. I love learning about the supernatural creatures that exist in this world that the author created. This book says its 18+ for a reason- it gets hot in here so I don't want to see any reviews bashing the sexual content. If you're a fan of paranormal romance you'll enjoy this series a lot and if you've read this author before you'll be impressed with how her writing's grown.
Vernal follows Serena, Abby and Callan's (from the Revelation Series) daughter. While this book can most definitely be read as a standalone, you'll definitely enjoy it more if you read the Revelation series first. That series was amazing as well, so come on...what are you waiting for? Serena was an amazing lead character. Randi writes such great female leads. I can't even emphasize enough how amazing her writing is in general, but one thing that I have always loved is her characters. Over the course of this novel, you see such character development in both Serena and Tristan's characters, and it makes for an wonderful time reading. Serena has spunk...she's rebellious and free-spirited. She doesn't want to be defined by her "destiny" and most importantly she wants to be treated as the protector she has trained to be. Serena has such a fire to her, and I loved her determination and attitude throughout the entire story. The minute Tristan came onto the scene I was in love. I guess Randi just has that way about her, but very few authors have the ability to make in fall in love with a character so fast. Tristan is such a strong, fierce protector in his own right, but I loved the balance Tristan and Serena had with each other. They worked together so well, and their banter was priceless! The had me laughing so much throughout this book. But Tristan is also an extremely mysterious character. As the son of Gage, it's bound to happen that he inherits some of Gage's behaviors...with one of those traits is being sexy even doing something like breathing.
The forbidden relationship that developed between Tristan and Serena is seriously one of my all time favorite relationships. Everything about them was perfect, and the steamy scenes certainly will leave you fanning yourself. This is definitely NA (or at least mature YA), but this girl certainly isn't complaining!! They're sexytimes seriously made you love them as a couple even more. They obviously have a chemistry that knows no bounds. But when things come out about Tristan's past, my face was the epitome of shock.
I couldn't believe the huge twist that came and it broke my heart into little tiny pieces. Why Randi?? WHY?? Suffice to say, this book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, and it left me very excited for the next book.
For fans of the Revelation series, we see many familiar faces, and when these familiar faces come onto the scene...well let's just say they certainly leave a lasting impression. Callan, as always, had me cracking up and I literally had to put my tablet down because I was laughing so hard! I'm so glad that Randi incorporated them into the story, but have no fear because Vernal is Tristan and Serena's story through and through. There is plenty of action and excitement, adventures into new realms, and gorgeous setting that will make you want to hop onto a plane to Ireland as soon as possible.
If you couldn't tell, I highly recommend checking this book out as soon as you can! With gorgeous writing and characters that you will fall in love with immediately, this book has it all! I seriously don't know how I'm going to be able to wait for the next book in the series Aequus, but it certainly is going to be a LONG wait.
Happy reading :)
