6.15.14 - Dark Seraphine - KaSonndra Leigh
Dark Seraphine - KaSonndra Leigh

Man, I have a short list of writers whose brains I would give all the gold in China to see into and would love to see what goes into their creative imaginations and Leigh is one of them.  


At first, when I first read Dark Seraphine I had a few difficulties that were all mine.  I seldom read books from the male perspective, which as a bibliophile, it shouldn't be a big deal, but one seldom can predict as to how one's reading style changes over time.  *shrugs*  Well, that was then and this is now.  I had picked the book up again since I had developed more of a taste for YA dystopian as of late, and this one became such a surprise to me.


FIRST! The deets...


"Mom always says the angels walk among us. She forgot to tell me that sometimes they're not all fluffy and nice."

Seventeen-year-old Caleb Wood has seen people he calls the walkers since he was a baby. It didn't take long for him to realize something…no one can see these strangers but him. They never stuck around or tried to touch him. And they never said a word. That was until one day on the first day of class in his senior year when an incredibly gorgeous girl strolls into his life…and things are never the same again.

Soon Caleb realizes he has stepped into the middle of a growing conflict between two ancient groups. And his ability to see the invisible ones, the half-breeds that want to modify the human race, just might be the only hope both he and the mysterious, but infuriating, Gia, have of making it out



The other interesting thing about KaSonndra's works is how she creates these worlds that often inspire music to pop into my head... most of her other works have and for a very freaky odd reason 'Bring me to Life' by Evanescence kept echoing in my ears as I read DS...

Evanescence - Alexandra Pelaez Evanescence - Alexandra Pelaez Evanescence is actually a creature in the book. Alexandra describes it as looking like a beetle with a lizard tail and rows of teeth. It is also the size of a medium dog and it purrs like a cat. At first, it kind of freaked me out but as the story goes a long you'll actually start thinking these things are cute.

The book started well, during the year 2075 (or sometime after), it was written wonderfully and the transitions were smooth. The book was entirely easy to read and I loved the characters.

Mercedes Strand is our lead and she's extremely smart and such an incredible hacker. She helps out abused women and she's pretty much very selfless. She only does things for other people rather than herself. Then she's becomes a tool for in an elite's plan for revenge on a vampire named Shadow, who by the way is incredibly hot. How Mercedes and Shadow met was sort of original but the love between them was kind of... I don't know. I always complain about the whiny types of love. But the whining mostly came from Shadow. I know right. Can't blame him for trying to protect his love.

Despite a few flaws here and there. The impact of the book is a little weak but I'm sure Alexandra will be writing it better with each book in the series. I'm looking forward to reading the next book when it comes out.
