Review: Dark Seraphine by KaSonndra Leigh

Dark Seraphine (Seraphine Trilogy, #1)Title: Dark Seraphine
Author: KaSonndra Leigh
Pages: 230
Rating: 4 out of 5
From Goodreads:
"Mom always says the angels walk among us. She forgot to tell me that sometimes they're not all fluffy and nice."

Seventeen-year-old Caleb Wood has seen people he calls the walkers since he was a baby. It didn't take long for him to realize something…no one can see these strangers but him. They never stuck around or tried to touch him. And they never said a word. That was until one day on the first day of class in his senior year when an incredibly gorgeous girl strolls into his life…and things are never the same again.

Soon Caleb realizes he has stepped into the middle of a growing conflict between two ancient groups. And his ability to see the invisible ones, the half-breeds that want to modify the human race, just might be the only hope both he and the mysterious, but infuriating, Gia, have of making it out alive.


A huge thank you to KaSonndra Leigh for offering this book in exchange for an honest review.

Caleb has seen “walkers” since before he can remember. They don't speak to him, so he just deals with them as if he's blind to them like everyone else. That all changes when a beautiful walker starts talking to him. He knows nothing about her except that he's the only one who can see or hear her. But when the gorgeous walker girl shows up at his school, sporting the name Gia and a crew of her own, things start to get weird. These creepy men keep popping up and Caleb starts to get crazy strong. The only thing Caleb knows is that he can't control the draw he feels to Gia, and it might just mean the beginning of the end.

I think maybe my head has been clouded by books that all about love and steamy scenes and not so much about the journey. Dark Seraphine was more about the journey, and I liked that. It was also very refreshing to read a book with a male POV. There was a great flow to the book, but I found a couple parts to be a little lack luster compared to the rest of the book.

Caleb deals with all the regular teenage boy stuff and some serious darkeness. He has to juggle school, girls, and his issues at home. I felt so bad about the way his father neglected him, it was so horrible. I didn't quite fall head over heels for him, but I definitely liked him. He was funny and smart, but there was room for growth.

His friends, Kyle and Shani, kind of annoyed me. I can't really even pinpoint the exact reason for it. Maybe it was because they didn't have much of a presence besides sucking face. And Shani came off as super bitchy. Erica was okay. You definitely feel for her when you find out more of her story, but I still felt a little weary of her.

The ending of this book was crazy. It left me wanting Lost Seraphine, the next in the trilogy, NOW! Overall I really liked this book I can't wait to see what will happen to Caleb next

And seriously, this book is only .99! That's a steal. [Price may change]
