Episode 6 of the wonderful 'Cain Chronicles' series is based around Summer & Abram (Rylie's children) exiled in Haven.

This tale is an excellent addition to the collection and SM Reine's writing & characterization just seems to get better with every book she writes.

Angels, werewolves & a couple of less savoury species make up this story with a very good ending that I have to admit I never saw coming (I wasn't even sure if Nash was a good guy or a bad guy until near the end).

If you have read any of the previous five books then this is a must read and for anyone into paranormal stories you should really give Sara's work a try as I read 'Six Moon Summer' around a year ago and in that time she has become one of my favourite authors....

New YA series about twins raised by their grandmother. Nothing unusual about that until you realise that one of them has a tendency to wander through the woods on four legs.
The story focuses on the female of the duo. Summer knows she is different but is completely unaware of exactly why and what that difference entails. Until she meets someone who knows why and that someone triggers a sequence of events that will change the way the twins interact with each other and the world around them.
There was one tiny issue that bugged me though. Grandma calling Summer 'babe' all the time I am not a fan of affectionate terms being used by younger people when speaking to an older person. Terms like hun, sweetie, pet, love and babe carry an air of condescension and lack of respect with them. When Grandma does it I get this vision of someone trying to be hip and looking quite creepy whilst doing it. On top of all that when Summer ends up alone in her room with the half naked luscious and lusty male, Grandma says the equivalent of go get 'em and have fun doing it.
Perhaps my Grandmother was just a little more conservative.
Anyway I digress, Reine has created a series, which I think ticks all the YA boxes. The conflict between parental authority, the sibling rivalry, the innocent yet seductive pull of youth and let's not forget the shifters, angels, demons and other odd supernatural characters in the book.
Apart from the ending, which I found a little candyfloss sweet and convenient, this is a series with potential. I will be interested to see where Reine takes the complexity of the war. On another note just from a genetic point of view perhaps we will find out whether there is a reason for the difference between the twins.
I received a free copy of this book for my review.

I have loved reading the whole series. The characters are well thought out and the stories appeal to me. I would recommend everyone to try at least 1 SM Reine book - but be careful, they are addictive

This is the first book I've read by this author, yes I know I should have started at the beginning but something about this book appealed to me and I didn't want to wait I did a little checking and figured that I could read this as a stand alone which I did. It was a great book, loved the characters and I did wish at times that I understood the background of the people more so yes I really enjoyed this and I'll now look into the rest.

Really enjoy these series! I am finishing them in a day or less. It is very fast paced and exciting. This one is like a book within a book and it is a refreshing break that ties in nicely with the previous book. Going to buy the next one now. =)

If you like supernatural novels you'll love this series of books. If you've never read this genre this is a good author to start with. The beginning books of her ascension series are available free on kindle so what have you got to loose?

The whole series of these books are brilliant. They are real page turners I always find I finish them in a day or two as I can't put them down.

I have read quite a lot of SM Reine's books and loved all of them. The Decent Series with Elise & James, witches, magic, demons and angels. The Cain Chronicles with Riley, Abel & Seth, their love triangle, werewolves and hunters. The Union a sinister "Government agency" who are in both series, and then Sara finally brings both worlds together in The Ascension Series, well done Sara, fantastic stories, great characters, thoroughly enjoyed sharing their worlds and your imagination.
