About the Book:

Nina and Liam are finally together, but at what cost to their future?

Nina Anderson is free of the man who hurt her for so many years. Now she can throw her whole heart into a relationship with her unearthly protector, Liam. She's thankful for the time she's been given with him but hates the restrictions. Nina is determined to find a way to make Liam human, even if it means putting her own life in jeopardy. 

Liam would give anything to be with Nina permanently, so when he's offered an assignment to investigate strange occurrences around Despair, he jumps at the chance. It appears to be an outbreak of crime, until he discovers that evil forces, called Rogues, are taking over human souls and forcing them to commit unspeakable crimes. Liam must race against time to save the woman he loves as well as the town he’s come to call his own.

Will Liam and Nina’s relationship withstand the incoming turmoil? Or will they be forced to make choices that will keep them apart forever?

My Review:

A few months ago I read the first book in this series, UNBROKEN SPIRIT.  I absolutely loved it and I loved this author's style of writing.  I couldn't wait to read the sequel!  And I must say that I was not disappointed in the least!  This book was fascinating and I could not put it down!  It had everything in it that I love in a book.  There was action, tingly romance, deep love and family devotion and the big question of whether or not good will win over evil.

There were just a few editing problems, but I was able to overlook that because the story was so very good.  Hopefully those editing problems can be fixed easily.

Although Kelsey Norman gives little hints of reminders to bring the reader up to date, I heartily recommend that you read the first book in this Mystic Hope series before you read this one.  Otherwise the relationship between Liam and Nina could be quite confusing.  Their relationship is rather unique.  He is a Martyr and she is human.  He is her "protecter", but he and Nina have fallen deeply in love.  Their love is hindered by the fact that he can only be with her for two hours each day.

Life becomes even more complicated when Rogues (the evil ones) arrive and begin to inhabit the bodies of those humans willing to allow them in.  That "willingness" is often the result of lies and illusions created by the Rogues.  And the illusions are so real that Nina and Liam have a difficult time telling what is true and what is not.

Even though this was a fantasy/paranormal type book, the Christian aspects were neatly woven into the mix.  I wouldn't think that was possible but Kelsey Norman managed to combine these ideas into a well crafted world.  I loved it!
