5.0 out of 5 stars A very good first book, 7 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Providence (Kindle Edition)
To say this appears to have been Jamie Mcguire's first book, I think it was very good. Having read "Beautiful Disaster" I had high hopes for this book and also very interested to see how this story would go being supernatural/paranormal (whatever) as opposed to the normal/everyday world of beautiful disaster. I was not disappointed!!

As a "twilight" fan, I'm not surprised of comparisons however I think it should be remembered that the Twilight Saga was not the first "supernatural/paranormal love story" ever written, nor does it contain the first love triangle ever written so really these comparisons I feel are unfair.

Back to the point, the story quickly had me immersed, Nina does start out pretty vulnerable and it does seem a little strange how quickly she finds herself almost obsessed with Jared but that said, the book starts with the death of her father and how her world has come crashing down given how much she adored him so as a reader, I can understand why her emotions are odd and make little sense at the beginning of their interaction!!

The characters were all convincing, with Claire (Jared's sister) being a highlight.

I especially enjoyed the injections of humour throughout this book to lighten the mood and add to the story. Like Beautiful Disaster, I couldn't put this story down and really enjoyed every part of it, immediately moving onto sequel "Requiem" when I finished the last page. I highly recommend!!
