The Morning Star Review and Giveaway

Publication Date: January 10th, 2013
Publisher: self-pub

Being the daughter of Lucifer keeps seventeen year old Dawn Belial busy. For almost her entire lifetime, she has been trying to think of a way to free her Archangel mother, Michaela, whom her father has held captive for centuries. She’s also attending high school – balancing trigonometry, history, and recruiting souls for her father along with her wicked half-sister, Venus.

There has been no time for love until she meets mysterious Gabriel, a British exchange student. As they fall in love against their will, she discovers a startling secret about him, and a shocking connection to her mother that changes everything.

My Review

This was very much not your typical novel about angels. This story centered around Lucifer and his daughters, and the fallen angel’s conflicts with the Creator and his brethren. This book unfolds pretty quickly, but manages to stay out of the realm of the “typical” or tacky good versus evil story line. The characters were modern and layered such that even if you don’t like a particular character, you still want to keep reading to know what happens next. The setting, Pasadena California, is described with such clarity that you want to be there feeling what the characters feel in their surroundings. I was really drawn into the storyline, I had my favorites and not so favorites in the players in the book, and I am very anxious for the next installment! The ending was a bit of a surprise and I have no idea what will happen next, but I know it will be good!

About the Author

Author of debut young adult novel, The Morning Star. Currently working on the sequel, Equinox, as well as a chick-lit, rom-com, slightly sleazy and funny story with a twist, Catching Frogs. And, because I’m loco in the roco, I’ve got about 12 more on the back burner. When I’m not writing I can be found kayaking, hiking, ninja-training, traveling, and taking a ferry over to the San Juan Islands to search for the elusive creature known as the “Orca.” I also am constantly adding ridiculous wants, needs, must-see’s and do’s to my ever expanding bucket book. 
I covet a delicious malbec with a rare steak and make a killer salsa.
