Release date: October 13, 2013
Publisher: Self
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Series: Fallen Guardian Saga #1

Destiny has two ways of crushing us…by refusing our wishes…and fulfilling them.

Vie had no idea when she descended into the small town of Newcastle, Wyoming that she’d find herself mesmerized by the mysterious and alluring eyes of one Carter Stone. And Carter believed he knew everyone that lived in his rural town until the day he locked eyes with Vivian Thorne. He couldn’t help but wonder what was different about this girl he had known all of his life.

He was right, Vie was the beautiful young Guardian that had been sent to their world looking for Carter and she did so merged in the vessel of the Thorne girl. Their meeting sparks a passionate romance between the two and soon after they embark on their journey to uncover the secrets of a past that they begin to realize they both shared. Their forbidden connection unleashes a war with disapproving parties and the lovers find themselves on a mission to uncover the truth of their not wholly human existence and their unbreakable bond.

Darkness falls as Lucian returns to settle a score with them and their lives take a thrilling and terrifying turn. The only way for Carter to stop Lucian and save the one he holds most dear is to unlock the secrets of his past and unleash the powers within him. What are the chances that two raindrops, flung from the heavens, will merge on a windowpane? Gotta be fate!

Deeply passionate and extraordinarily suspenseful, Descended captures the struggles between doing what is expected of you and unleashing your destiny, between fulfilling prophecies and desires, between loyalty and love.

My Rating: 3 Roses

A lovely YA paranormal romance, Descended was an enjoyable read. It was thrills, romance, action, and it was wonderful.

Vie was a good heroine. She was very strong and quite feisty. She wasn't going to let anything take her down or get in the way of what she needed to do. I liked her. I thought she was great.

Carter was a sweetheart. He was super adorable and devoted to Vie. And, it would be a mistake to underestimate him. I really liked him.

The romance was very sweet. Vie and Carter were completely devoted to each other and it was adorable. I thought they were a great couple.

I have to mention Jeremy because he played a bit role. Normally, he would irritate me, because he was an obstacle in the main couple's relationship. And, he did, sometimes. But, I also felt bad for him, because the girl he loved isn't actually there, but her body is up and around with another guy. And, in the end, he helped Vie and Carter out. I hope he gets a happy ending.

The plot was okay. I was kept interested, but I was never completely hooked. I just didn't get fully drawn into the story. But, I did enjoy the story, anyway. It was full of thrills, action, and secrets. And, the ending has me curious about what's coming up next.

Descended was a lovely YA paranormal romance. I didn't totally love it, but I definitely liked it. It was an enjoyable read. YA lovers, I can't say that you must go out and get this book right now, but it is definitely one that you might want to give a try.
