Hey all! Today I have a stop on the review tour for Angel of Syn by Mertianna Georgia. Along with the review I have an excerpt and a giveaway for you all.
Angel of Syn
by Mertianna Georgia
Contemporary witch Cara Augustine goes international and inter-dimensional, from San Francisco to France to an alternate Eden-like dimension, in this second book of the Synemancer series.
Cara is a fugitive, pursued by the Portalkind police for breaking a major covenant. When she accidently made a werewolf her witch’s familiar, it amounted to enslaving a human. And the punishment is death. On the run for her life, she and her companions stumble into a strange paradise dimension. But they quickly find the dangerous world is filled with strange creatures, deadly and beautiful. And, because she’s quickly learning a Synemancer’s life is never simple. Cara has to deal with an amorous Nephilim (half-angel half-witch), a dangerously deranged French werewolf, and the darkly handsome Nightkind she just might love. Each powerful supernatural man has his own reasons for wanting to possess Cara, body and soul. But if the Portalkind police catch her, she’ll be in a fight for her life.
Cara seems to always be in the middle of something. From having three sexy guys all want her, to getting chased by the Portalkind police for turning Tom into a familiar, and being hunted by fractions from all kinds of places. She is struggling to get her powers under control, keep her family and friends safe, figure out her love life and to stay alive her self.
I really liked Cara. She seems to have so much going on in her life and you might think what does she do to get into these situations. Really most of the time they are not her fault. She has the sexy side of her even if she isn't the prettiest one around. Her powers are so strong that I don't think she has even tapped into them all. She truly cares so much for her family and friends and will do anything to protect them. Tom is a werewolf who is just so sweet at times. He reminds me of a pup as you can see that playful side of him. He also has that charm that you can tell will make him a favorite with the ladies. Roman is so sexy and powerful. He knows what he wants and is going to make sure he gets it no matter what. Azreal is the only one I am not sure how I feel about. He is a great protector and you can tell he is sexy but I am looking forward to seeing how far he will go to try and get Cara.
I have not read the first book but did not get to lost in this one. You can tell it picks up where the first one ends. I got the feel for the book by the end of the second chapter. I will just say this book has so much going on it, you won't want to put it down. The action is constant and fast pace. Seems like something is always happening. You get a great feel for the characters and the lengths they will go through for each other. I liked the plot as it combines all kinds of different paranormal creatures and how their world is. Some of them even being paranormal seem small minded and scared of anything they don't understand. This book does have a few hard scenes I wouldn't recommend to people wanting a light read but if you want a harder book that keeps you wondering what next, with some sexy men give it a try.
4 out of 5 Stars
Bart straightened from his defensive semi-crouch, still eyeing the Hounds warily. I glanced around the room to see if the orbs were here, but they were nowhere in sight. The mirror chimed and shimmered for the umpteenth time since I’d come into the room. A tall, pale man dressed in black and wearing a black backpack walked into the room. Azrael stood silently on Amelia’s hardwood floor, and by the expression on his beautiful face, he was angry enough to chew spells and spit out hexes. He quickly scanned the room. His ice-blue eyes focused on me and I had his full attention. All Hades was about to break loose. With two weres, two Hellhounds, and a Nightkind in the room, the situation was about to get bloody.
