I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Stacy Von Haegert!
This was the first novel I read by Von Haegert, and I have got to say that I was extremely impressed. This book was fantastical, captivating, and sexy with some dark aspects. You'd think elemental benders, vampires, angels and shifters in one book would make for a terrible mixed mess, however, for some reason it works. Oh, I forgot to mention that there is also an Oracle. So yeah, a giant meli-melo.
Von Haegert was able to connect all of the mythical creatures and character's in a simple and effective way. I don't mean to say that the world she created is simple, what I'm saying is that she effectively and concisely explained it in the novel in such a way that it did not confuse the reader at any point.
I think what stands out most for me is how fluid and cohesive the story is. It read really smoothly without a single bump in the plot (I mean figuratively, cause you guys will see).
This may have been my first Von Haegert book, but it definitely will not be my last!
