Descendant (Descendant #1)

Decendant

Seventeen-year-old Abigail Johnson is Gifted.

Blessed—or cursed—with Sight and Healing, Abby lives an unsettled life, moving from place to place and staying one step ahead of the darkness that hunts her. When she arrives in Jackson, Wyoming, she is desperate to maintain the illusion of normalcy, but she is plagued with visions of past lives mixed with frightening glimpses of her future. Then she meets Kye, a mysterious boy who seems so achingly familiar that Abby is drawn to him like he’s a missing piece of her own soul.

Before Abby can discover the reason for her feelings toward Kye, the darkness catches up to her and she is forced to flee again. But this time she’s not just running. She is fighting back with Kye at her side, and it’s not just Abby’s life at stake.

My Review:

First I would like to thank the lovely author and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of Descendant to read and review.

After a traumatic event that rocks Abby to her core, she moves to seemingly normal Jackson

At the age of 17, she has the emotions of a teen-age girl trying to figure out who she is while fitting into a new town and school, you then need to add into the mix dreams of true love, loss and past lives and you’ve got a story the keeps the pages turning

“Life’s a journey that forces us all to move forward, whether we want to or not.”

Soon after, she is thrust into the deep, dark world of the Gifted after she meets Kye; a beautiful, blue-eyed boy secrets of his very own

This love story is magical and has you rooting for both Abby and Kye from the beginning.

Kye is a perfect gentleman who can still get your heart drumming in your chest with just a one look 😉

An exciting young adult paranormal romance & coming of age story with a splash of urban fantasy involving Greek/Roman mythology

The author has managed to create something so captivating, unique, and something that doesn’t follow the trends in the world of books as they are today

Descendant moves along at a good speed, spinning a tale of love that is transcendent, and a war that has raged centuries ago and caused endless devastation.

Be prepaid to read about lots of fairies, mermaids, psychics, healing herbs and crystals, sprites, magical creatures, dragons, swords and sorcery, goddesses, demons, the Morrigana, magic, witchcraft, romance oh and one more thing…..lots of kissing

Well written.

Love the elementals and paranormal gifts. Can’t wait for the sequel
