The burden of Dave’s girlfriend’s death pushes Brandi, the Seraph of Love, to abduct David Howels in hopes of protecting Dave from his murderous father. Will Brandi be able to show Dave that all in life is not lost in death? Twists and turns abound as Brandi discovers her own shocking revelation—that Dave has been her soul mate all along.
Separating Dave and herself from their allies on the threshold of the apocalypse, Brandi turns to an old friend for help—a witch—to aid her in her quest to prepare Dave to face his worst fears and her own. Filled with curses, and secrets that threaten to destroy everything, Brandi must find forgiveness from within before she can find love. In the past, healing a broken heart would’ve been easy, but now faced with the task of healing Dave’s broken heart while not exposing her own, Brandi learns why love is truly the greatest gift of all.
My Review: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
I've loved both books one and two in the Vulcan Legacies series, but I have to say, I think this novella is my favorite so far. Black Atonement captured love, sacrifice, and regret so well. It amazes me that Ms. Hibbs was able to yank my heart around so completely, so quickly.
Brandi blew me away in this story. I absolutely loved her character. So fiercely determined to do what she felt she must even at the risk of sacrificing her future happiness. I love a strong heroine, and Brandi certainly fit the bill. Even when she wallowed in despair, she managed to claw her way out in order to push ahead with her plans.
The plot was so fast-paced, I didn't put the novella down once I started reading. I loved the scenes with Abraham, he's such an intriguing character. I really hope he's featured in future books. There is just something so satisfying about being pulled heart and soul into a story, and that is exactly what happened with Black Atonement.
If you haven't read any of the books in this series, I have to say that you're missing out on some great writing and characterization.
About the Author
By age 5, Sasha Hibbs' favorite movie was Gone With the Wind. By age 12, she completed her 7th grade book report on the sequel, Scarlett. By 18, she met and married her very own Mr. Rhett Butler and as it turns out, she never had to worry about going back to Tara to win the love of her life back. Fortunately, he stuck with her.
With a love of all things paranormal, the ambiance of the South with its gigantic antebellum mansions and canopies of Spanish moss, and a love for her husband’s rich storytelling of blacksmiths and the mythology surrounding their origins, it wasn’t long until the world of her debut novel, Black Amaranth, was born.
When not working her day job as a nurse, you can find Sasha dreaming of her next beach trip, reading the latest YA novel, and drinking more white chocolate mocha than she should.
Sasha lives in mountainous West Virginia with her husband, Tim, and their two daughters, Aeliza and Ava. She is currently hard at work on her next novel in The Vulcan Legacies series.
