Wormwood by D. H. Nevins is a post-apocalyptic thriller you?ll never forget. Against a devastated landscape, a legion of one hundred fierce half-angels is hell bent on purging the Earth of all humans. But one of them, the tormented Tiamat, struggles against his mission, and when he rescues a beautiful woman named Kali, he finds the attraction as troubling as it is miraculous. Can Kali trust the one creature who could be responsible for her ultimate demise? Beautifully written and excitingly told, Wormwood creates a world that is as strange as it is compelling. Filled with brilliantly executed twists and turns on every page that are guaranteed to keep you guessing, Wormwood is one of the most exciting debuts of the year.

This was an awesome recommendation Even though I already had it! If it hadn't been recommended, I honestly believe that I would still have it in the TBR pile. The story is superb and it gets you hooked.
I'm not too much of a fan of romance novels, just not my thing. They are really cheesy in my opinion. This isn't a romance novel per say, but it does have a lot of romance in it; just the right amount to my liking. I must confess, there was a time that it did get a little cheesy, but it was okay cause the story got more and more intriguing.
This book is loaded with action and macabre scenes such had me hooked as well. Like I said, the story is amazing! The writing is exceptional and I was quoting it nonstop. The book leaves you in wonder, what now?
I'm so buying the second and third book. This book has angels and demons, gore, action, love, and even sex! I loved reading it since page one. This book is definitely recommended on my part. An awesome dystopian/post apocalyptic novel.
The perfect blend of supernatural and a post-apocalyptic world was wonderfully delivered. The atmosphere, dark and brooding, offered no hope at first - neither for the last survivors nor for the two main heroes. But the powerful message of true love overcoming all obstacles in its way and even defying death itself, made “Wormwood” a truly unforgettable read. Highly recommended to all fans of the genre.
HOWEVER! The story developed and became pretty good. I do wish she had discovered her past a little sooner. It does set the sequels up to be very good as she learns of her heritage and all that it entails. I would read the next book without hesitation.
This book is well written and incredibly descriptive. I felt as though I was in this world created by D.H. Nevins. It’s a dark and scary place with perhaps, redemption in the distant future? I did have a couple of issues with the book. First, it was hard for me to truly believe there was a strong romantic pull between Kali and Tiamat. When Tiamat is sent to destroy earth (I’m talking about annihilation!) and robs Kali of her father, I couldn’t feel the angst that should have brought me to tears once she came to that realization. Instead there was a little push and pull between them and POOF; she’s in-love with him. Really?? The other issue I had was, a few of the chapters were slow-moving but once it did pick-up, I couldn’t put the book down.
There were moments I was frightened and horrified but I became entangled in Kali’s world wanting to know what would happen next. A few interesting characters that were absolutely scary were Richard and Merodach. I could only assume Richard to be the devil but I’m not entirely certain and Merodach is just a power-hungry half-breed with a mean streak. When I think Angels, I think some are good and bad but in this book, it didn’t leave me with too much hope that they’re even good at all. Maybe because they’re half human? While Tiamat and Nathaniel seem to possess some of that goodness we believe Angels to have, I still think it’s questionable.
When Tiamat gives himself up willingly and they shave his wings, I cried! I felt as though I was watching the execution and I was devastated. It was gruesome and heartbreaking. GAH!!! Why?? My little heart can only take so much!! But Tiamat returns later on? I’m a little confused on that bit because I’m not able to figure out if Kali is dead or he was given a 2nd chance? Maybe that’s part of the cliff-hanger? But the part that hit me right between the eyes was the revelation about Kali’s relationship with Richard!!
Once I was done with the book I was consumed by feelings of melancholy and was drained emotionally. This book is seriously intense and I’m glad I took the risk! :)
Looking forward to the sequel!
