The Book ✯✯✯✯
SPNFamily and lesser devoted Supernatural fans rejoice! You have just found your literary companion to the end of the world complete with Nephilim and the Four Horsemen.
Ryder Lyne has taken Biblical hints and turned it into a thrilling supernatural ride where the Arc of the Covenant is found and unleashes powers in humans with watered down Nephilim DNA.
Though there are times where she gets a bit too technical in wording (i.e. "...her stubby phalange around Wren's own..." in reference to a pinky promise), the story itself is so compelling I completed reading it in about 4 hours.
Wren and Piper are both likeable and have a devoted sisterhood. We know they have a depressing past involving losing their parents. We know that Clay likes Wren. We know that there are other Nephilim that Wren and Piper care about. Annnnd.... that's actually it. This is a fairly typical YA where it stays away from too much character development. Honestly, that depresses me, because this could have made a killing in the adult world if we had expanded on who and what all these characters mean to themselves and each other.
But, y'all, this premise is nothing short of fantastic. So it makes up for all its sins with it. I really enjoyed it, but I don't know if I'll be eagerly anticipating the sequel.
Thank you to NetGalley, Ryder Lyne, and Ryder Lyne Publishing, LLC for this free ARC in exchange for an honest review.
