Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: The Divinities #1
Title: Forgotten Visions
Author: Lia Davis
Publisher: After Glows
Published: August 24th, 2016
This author writes paranormal stories that are somehow enable the reader to suspend belief and great reads to get lost in – and this is no exception. This is the brilliant start to a new series involving witches and demons together with the very special witches who are called the Divinity. There have been a series of Divinity murders and Ayden Daniels is the sheriff investigating them. Ayden is the grandson of the oldest living Divinity and realised when he was just seventeen that Kalissa Bradenton is his soul mate. At that time, she agreed but then she rejected him completely, leaving him heartbroken. Now the two meet again after she has a near fatal car crash that wasn’t an accident. Seeing him again triggers memories that she doesn’t remember and the attraction between them is still incredible. When Ayden realises why Kalissa has forgotten about him and their love he begins to hope again their true love can conquer all. Why has she forgotten about them? What evil determined to separate them then? Will they stand any chance of fulfilling their destiny and become soul mates?
This is an action packed fight of good against evil, with the young Divinities starting to explore their powers and learning how to overcome the ever threatening attempts of the demons and previously unknown Dark Divinities. It is an enthralling story with a range of wonderful characters – you’ve just got to love Teddy and Bear!
This is a great second chance paranormal romance with some unique elements that I can’t wait to learn more about in future novels in the series! As usual with this author, I have no hesitation in highly recommending this to anyone who enjoys magically wonderful romantic battles and adventures.
I was gifted a copy of this book by the author and publisher, via Barclay PR and NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
Kalissa Bradenton isn’t your average coffee shop owner. Born to an elite witch bloodline with a rare genetic mutation, she’s a Divinity on a mission. Her investigation into the deaths of her parents sends her straight into the middle of an ancient war between witches and demons. After a near-fatal accident, a childhood friend, Ayden Daniels, comes to her aid and triggers visions of a past she doesn’t remember, sparking an old flame and new desires. With their history slowly becoming clearer, Kalissa eagerly sets her sights on mending Ayden’s heart and gaining his trust—until a ghost from her past returns to claim her as his demonic mate.
While investigating a series of Divinity murders, Ayden, the new sheriff of Maxville and grandson of the oldest living Divinity, comes face-to-face with the one woman he hopes to have little to no contact with. Old pain rises instantly and is quickly followed by anger and resentment. Through his rare power of adaptability, however, he learns that things from his past may not be what they seem. Hope fills his broken heart, and determination pushes him to do whatever it takes to win Kalissa once more before he loses her forever.
Together, they must find the strength to mend their tattered souls and learn to love again, while fighting an evil out to destroy the world.
