The intellectual challenge of college and the warm embrace of a serious boyfriend have given Maya the wings she needs to break away from her bookish and shy reserve. Her ideal life comes crashing down when she and her boyfriend are accosted by a stranger. A stranger with glowing hands.
Maya's boyfriend is killed. She is kidnapped. Changed.
A rescue comes, but not soon enough.
Maya’s senses sharpen, her body becomes strong and agile, and she develops the ability to visually see the emotions of those around her as colorful auras…beautiful auras…tempting auras.
And then there’s the song…
Now, Maya must struggle to control the murderous appetite that fuels her new abilities, accept her altered condition and learn to trust two vigilante half-brothers she never knew she had. As she joins the battle against a secret network of powerful and destructive beings that call themselves "Angels", Maya vows to find and destroy the one who changed her.
On the bright side, at least Maya's oldest half-brother has stopped trying to kill her.
Let me start off with the characters because I love characters. If they didn't work for me, the entire book would be shot. The main characters are 2 brothers. They are a perfect blend together. You get both sides of the spectrum of people- the soft hearted and the tough as nails. But it works for the them. They're real. Bennett has obviously taken the time and effort to make good characters that you actually want to read.
The world she has going worked for me. I liked it a lot. I also like the fact that she's working with the concept of angels, even if there were also vampire-like creatures as well. It's a nice take on a creature that is usually spun in a different way.
I definitely recommend this book for those that enjoy books that play with what we normally perceive as one kind of creature. Those that love paranormal, or heavenly concepted books- this is a good one. Check it out.
