I found Revelation by Randi Cooley Wilson quite by accident. I was looking to write a blog about #gargoyle books and I came across hers. So, I investigated. I found her book on Amazon. I tweeted her. She was kind enough to tweet back. Then, I downloaded Revelation to my iPhone Kindle app and off I went. I was doing so much reading, I had to read upside down to unkink my neck. No joke. She was nervous because we both love gargoyles, so it was fun tweeting her my progress as I read. Well, I have to say I loved this book. It has everything in it your paranormal heart could desire: gargoyles, angels, faeries, an assortment of demons and of course gargoyles, wait I said that already. There were so many things I liked about Revelation, so lets start with the main guy, Asher. Holy cow. Holy moly. Holy hotness.
This is what I saw when I read about Asher. Conflicted. Intense. Indigo eyes, she said. Jeans and white T-shirt, she said. Tattooed with a---- (you'll have to read that yourself).
But, I digress. Let's get to the center of the story. The focus is on Eve, an orphan raised by her maternal aunt, who has just begun college as a communications major stuck in a boring architecture class, where she meets Asher St. Michael (Mr. Indigo Eyes). He's infuriating. She's tenacious. His lips are more interesting than the professor's boring lecture on medieval building design. It doesn't take too long for Eve to realize something is up between her terrifyingly real nightmares and her inexplicable draw to Asher. She faces off with demon dogs and a bent gargoyle, all of whom are agents of Lucifer. Eve discovers she has a special place among humans and the paranormal creatures she encounters. Her ability to fulfill her destiny, or not, will affect everyone around her.
Bottom line, Randi has created fantastic characters and a great paranormal world.This is a wonderful new adult/young adult read. It was fast. Easy to get into. And can I say...THAT ENDING!! What?! I'm on to book two because I need to know what happens. I enjoyed this book until my neck hurt, so how could I give it less than 5 stars? Available @ Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes and Noble.
