Descension Blog Tour - Review & Giveaway

Hey everyone! I am very happy to be a part of this book tour. The book is so amazing. Be sure to enter the giveaway at the bottom.

Book Description:
The Angel
After three years caring for her dying mother, Layla Callaway learns she was adopted under unusual circumstances. Following a cryptic message to seek her birth family in Oregon, Layla uproots her lonely life, quickly finding she descends from witches and wizards. Magic is in her blood, and a handsome family friend is eager to prove it. Through a ring imprinted with her birth parents’ memories, Layla’s enigmatic past comes to light, presenting possibilities and trials more chimerical than her wildest dreams.

The Guardian
Quin’s natural charisma yields plenty of witches, but he longs for the lost witch – the mysterious Layla. He's dreamed about her his entire life, envisioning the day he would lay eyes on her face and aura. When that day arrives, not only is he breathless, he’s confronted with the challenge of a lifetime – an innate need to keep her safe and forever by his side.

The Hunter
Employing fiendish manipulation and manpower, Agro uses the arcane force of others to elevate his supremacy and wealth. Nothing pleases him more than latching on to a mystical vein, and never has there been a more enticing source. The divine witch will be his.

My Review
After Layla's mother dies she discovers many things she didn't know. She has been left a lot of money that she never was aware she had and a note from her mom. The note tells how she was adopted and gives her just a few things to help her find out more about her family. She goes on a journey to see what she can find. She ends up with some help in the form of Quin. He knows all about her and lets her figure a few things out. She is a witch and comes from a long line of witches and wizards. Quin is a wizard and helps her figure some spells out and is by her side as she discovers the evil that is after her and the sweet love of her real parents.

The first chapter I wasn't sure what to expect of this book. I knew an evil person was after Layla even if she didn't know it but I was not expecting what I got with this book. What I got was a real first for me. I cried like a baby. I never hardly cry my hubby even calls me heartless sometimes (jokingly of course) cause I refuse to cry. I really like Layla and can not to see her learn her powers more and to see what comes of her and the super sweet Quin. Her journey of discovery is a small part of this story. For me the story of her parents is what got me. I loved it and it broke my heart at the same time. There is plenty of magic, betrayal, love and heartache all rolled into this enchanting book. I would recommend this story to anyone. I want to tell you more but I will not give spoilers as you know. This book is one that will stay with me for a long time I can tell.Please pick this book up and read it. As for me I need to get the next book now. I know Layla's journey is just starting.

  1. I always grin like the Grinch when I hear that Descension made someone cry, not because I'm cruel, but because it means the reader connected to the story in a way I intended. So to hear I made someone cry that never cries makes me want to do cartwheels! This is a wonderful review. Thank you so much for reading and recommending Descension!
