When Worlds Collide, Shadow Wrestles Light
Seventeen-year-old Cera Marlowe wants a normal life; one where she and her mom can stop skipping town every time a disturbing vision strikes. But when a girl she knows is murdered by a monster she can’t explain, Cera’s world turns upside down.
Suddenly thrown into an ancient supernatural battle, Cera discovers she’s not alone in her gifting and vows to use her visions to save lives. But why does John Milton’s poem Paradise Lost keep interrupting her thoughts?
In a race against time and a war against unearthly creatures, will decoding messages embedded in the works of classic literature be enough to stop the bloodshed and protect those she loves?
If you like urban fantasy, you have to buy this book. I don’t usually put this in my review, but in this case it needs to be said. From the first chapter I was hooked and wanted to keep reading. And it’s not just because Paradise Lost was one of my favorite things I had to read during my Bachelor’s program. The author did an incredible job weaving together so many fantastic elements into this story that just made it so enjoyable. You all know characters are my favorite part of a book. Rhoads’ characters did not disappoint. They were so full of life and so multi-faceted that it took the book’s plot and upped the stakes. I loved how she wrote the relationships between characters and how they interact. You will not regret reading this book. It’s a must-have for any urban fantasy lover, and one I will be reading again and again.
Now I’m off to read some Paradise Lost!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit and Enclave Publishing, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.
