Like always I was given this book through the powers of Netgallery in exchange for an honest non swoon over angels review.
As you may know I am big fan of the Jennifer L. Armentrout paranormal young adult The Dark Element series. I became a fan of Cassandra Clare’s series The Immortal Instrument because it’s inspired by the epic poem by John Militon‘s Paradise Lost. So imagine my shock for not knowing about Randi Cooley’s young adult novel. Oh Heavens, pun intended how did I not know about this book before. This books is not young adult it’s more new adult for sure. Although young adult can get quite graphic when the authors creativity is stretched to the brim of passionate romance of forbid love. This novel as a great story line even though the past of the novel can be slow in parts, and there are some errors in dialogue, it being choppy in places. I can forgive that because its the first book of the series, A SERIES. Which means it’s only going to better as time goes by. I feel that if I continue reading all the grammatical errors would be lost in translation, to me it’s the story that I honestly fall in love with.
I’m rather pleased with myself to have found this series because I haven always wanted another paranormal series that involves Gargoyles after reading The Dark Elements series. I am a big fangirl for the Disney Gargoyles cartoon, so I’m always interested in a new adult romantic paranormal series. However I don’t think the concept is highly original and I have read reviews that continue speaking on that point but I’m extremely excited to see what is going to happen. It’s not the story that needs to be original but the characters emotional connection, their journey that truly makes a tale different.
What’s making The Revelation series such a pleasurable read is how amazing Cooley’s characters are. There are times where I am not very interested in the overall plot of the story when I’m actually comparing how much I enjoy the characteristic of the characters the author has created. Let’s talk about these spirited cast of characters of Eve, the collage bound heroine of the novel, Gage the charmer, Asher the protector of Eve, and you the reader.
Eve is the typical heroine of the new adult novel but that doesn’t mean she’s not entertaining to read. She’s extremely clever, smart, innocent who has a group of girlfriends who love her dearly. As time goes by she slowly realizes her simple life isn’t so carefree anymore. Then of course we are introduce to the two men who are Greg and Asher, cue love triangle please because these men are both rich & handsome.
I know this series isn’t going to be ground breaking when it comes to the act of how original the plot is, however I’m still reading this series and I’m still loving it.
I can not wait to see what Cooley has in store for me.
Happy Reading Ya’ll
