Review by Poppy

Contemporary witch Cara Augustine is wanted by the Portalkind police. She broke a major covenant when she accidently made a werewolf her witch’s familiar. That crime is considered enslaving a human—and the punishment is death. But even on the run as a fugitive, she quickly learns a Synemancer’s life is never simple as she fends off an amorous Nephilim who has just learned he’s a powerful combination of half-angel and half-witch, a treacherous and deranged French werewolf who wants to enslave her, and the darkly handsome, formidable Nightkind who is determined to marry her. Each powerful supernatural man has his own reasons for wanting to possess Cara, body and soul, and nothing will stop them from pursuing her. In an effort to escape the Portalkind police, Cara and her companions stumble into another dimension and find themselves in a strange Garden of Eden. But they quickly discover that this dangerous world, filled with strange creatures that are both deadly and beautiful, is no paradise. Can Cara survive this world and find her way home? And if she does, will it only be to face her execution for a crime she didn’t mean to commit?

For a new twist on the paranormal genre, try Angel of Syn. I’ve never read a story with so many different paranormal beings, and hadn’t ever heard of a synemancer before. There’s a sexy nephilim, a super hot werewolf, and yummy Nightkind all fighting for Cara’s heart, soul and body.

From the first page this book is all go-go-go … excitement, action, danger. Don’t pick this up unless you don’t mind heart-pounding thrills. Cara finds herself in constant danger, sometimes her own fault, sometimes not (and once it includes a scene that some may find disturbing).

The characters are many, but are well drawn and easy to tell apart. This was the second book in a series, but it only took a couple of chapters for me to figure out what was going on and I didn’t feel overly lost. I’d suggest reading book one for a clearer idea of the overall story, but I read book two without it and still enjoyed what I read.

The author has a skill with words and kept me engaged. I wasn’t overly excited by Cara’s constantly revved up sex drive, and having three men after her (and having her attracted to all of them) was sometimes overwhelming. Still, Angel of Syn is a good read, and I’d recommend it to any fans of the genre.

  4. Thanks so much for your review and hosting my book today! And thank you to everyone who commented about the review and blurb. Although this was a hard book for me to write, Cara’s growth through adversity will make her stronger in the last book of this trilogy. Also be assured, she’ll never lose her sense of humor.

  5. Thats exciting that there’s so many paranormal creatures! I get bored with the vamps vs. weres, angels vs. Demons, etc trope. Mix them all in is what I say! Thanks for sharing!!
