Summary

"You see, there is safety in simplicity...in a life of simple peace, where the electricity doesn't dance across the backs of my eyelids, and the sparks don't slither over my consciousness. Only asinine peace, where my paintings don't seem to paint themselves, leaving me with terrible feelings of premonition and a chill beneath my fingernails."

Seraph Black used to think that she was prepared for anything. She could last days without eating and she always walked away from the violent altercations with her father relatively unharmed. She survived working at the club and the drive to school every day in her mother's rust-bucket of a car...but it all changed when Noah and Cabe came bulldozing into her life, careless of the precious secrets they picked apart in their quest to take over her world. She was even less prepared for the mysterious Miro and Silas, and nothing could have prepared her for the bond. The connection. The reason for it all.

Someone wanted her to stay away from her new friends, but she wasn't willing to do that.

Everyone had secrets.

She wanted to know theirs. They wanted to own hers.

And the stalker?

He seemed to know everything already.

Odd

Beautiful artwork for book cover, good steady narration. World building and story pace was good and the characters likable. the story took an odd turn towards the end when our 19 yr old heroine (a baby in my eyes) was revealed to have have a predestined romantic relationship with four men. The focus of the novel was about the forming of the bond the heroine had with her men and finding out more about the supernatural world. there was only kissing between characters-- even liking most elements of this story I doubt I'll get the next novel in this series as I'd probably be uncomfortable with it

interesting and compelling.

My Kindle kept telling me to read/listen to this, I kept putting it off bc I thought it would be another teen angst book.
I was shockingly and happily surprised that it was a book with maturity in the characters and a wonderful, vibrant story line.
Even though there wasn't really any thing sexual in the book other than a few kisses and the mention of sex, some of the subject matters really are for older teens/adults.
I'm glad I finally listened after months of Kindle suggesting it lol.

too slow moving and confusing.

I spent most of the book confused. Also the narrator had a monotone and choppy way of reading that almost made me feel anxious. Not a terrible story, just wish it had been better executed.

Narration is terrible

I cannot review the story itself, as I have not finished it yet. I will, however, finish it on my Kindle. The narrator's performance of this was one of the worst I've experienced. There was no inflection to her tone, her sentences ended in a breathy "whoopf" that made each sentence sound like a question. I couldn't make it past chapter 2.

Great book!

I really enjoyed this book. It is addicting. Can’t wait to start the next book.


The narrator was a bit annoying. She starts talking really fast for no reason and then slows back down again. I moved past it pretty quick because I enjoyed the plot!

A little more YA than I was thinking

This ended up being a little more young adult than I had anticipated, but the over arching story, over all 4 books, was amazing. It also didn't end up being YA by the end. I really loved the characters and the world that Jane Washington has created here. I actually picked it up because of another book series that Jane Washington had written with Jaymin Eve. I was looking for the level of humor that the other books had, and did not find it here. That's not a bad thing. I loved every moment of it and listened/read all 4 books in 5 days because I simply could not put them down. I had to see what happened next.

The narrator has a couple of odd habits that would occasionally pull me out of the story. Pausing over-long over commas between adjective in description chains is one of them, and the overall angst-y downturn to her voice as she ended sentences, but she does well with accents, and while I could not tell a specific male character from another through her voice changes (except Silas) her male voices did not annoy me the way that some female readers do when doing male voices.

Ruined it for me

I didn't have a problem with anything but the way she read. Why on earth do you have so much breath at the end of your words? Like everything is read so ridiculously dramatic that I can't even pay attention to the book! No, it's fine I'll read it on my own. I wasted money on this.

Couldn't finish

I cant even get into the story. I may finish later but for now the narrator's performance makes my stomach cringe...not her voice but her speech pattern.

Could have been great!

This book has a very interesting story, however there are so many holes that never seem to get filled in - that its very hard to follow the story. A little background would have save that. Most of the book you are guessing - and you rarely get an answer.
I believe this book could have been as good as Divergent orTwilight - but not knowing whats going on or even a hint at it - ruins that prospect.'
With that being said I still really liked this book, I will get the next book and see if it gets better. The narration is not good at all - if that bothers you - listen to the sample before purchase.

Seph and her guys

I loved this book! I've read all the others in the series too. The narration was good also. The only negative was that in the books there were many spelling and grammar errors.
