Paige by Jen Gentry

About the Book: 

From #1 Bestselling and Award Winning Christian Fantasy Author of The Gifts Series, Jen Gentry, comes a new Christian Fantasy/Paranormal Thriller series. The Legion of the Chosen: Paige, is the first in this exciting new trilogy.

Paige Black is a Goth with a gift. But is she ready to take on the dark powers tearing our world to shreds? She’s skeptical when she meets up with Zab, the Ancient, who walks the earth seeking the Chosen to keep the Dark Ones from finding them first. Paige isn’t sure she wants to take on the Dark Ones or submit to Zab’s training. On the other hand, she’s angry enough to fight anyone, even demons. Paige is Protector of the Chosen. So, bring it, Dark Ones. This Goth girl’s coming for you.

My Review:

This is an excellent read! Paige is easy to connect to, and I was rooting for her throughout the entire story. She's the perfect mix of mature and immature, and she's had a rough upbringing as well. I enjoyed Paige finding out who and what she is, and who among her peers were true friends and allies. I liked how well the forces of darkness were shown meddling in Paige's life. Zeb is great and I could hug the arena. LOL! The betrayals, revelations, action, faith, relationships, there's nothing in this book that I didn't enjoy! From Paige's foster parents to the most deceived people in the story, this book is on the level with Peretti's children's series. It's perfect for teens and adults alike, and it doesn't disappoint. I can't wait to leave a review for the next book in this series.

Shadows of the Past by Ashley Dawn

Shadows from the Past

About the Book:  
“…It is the price you pay for choosing to be a cop. Your brother’s life…”

Those words haunt her dreams, and her waking moments. LAPD officer, Aurora Kavvan cannot rest until she finds hebrothers killer. Digging into the past always brings back unpleasant things: memories, guilt…the hit man. Now she is in a race against time to find the murderer before he finds her.

“Kill her. I don’t care how, and I don’t care where, but I want her dead now!”

Someone was trying to kill his dead partner’s sister. FBI agent, Jordan Reiley will stop at nothing to protect the woman he loves. Even if it means going against her wishes; putting himself between her and the man who murdered her 

Will God keep them alive long enough for them to find the truth?

My Review:

Sometimes you take a chance on a book and find you got one you really like. This is one of those cases. I liked the overall action and mystery of the story. I felt for Jordan, rather deeply and I came to like Rorie just fine. Sure some of it seemed obvious to me and some places were kinda repetitive, however, that's realistic to an extent as well. I liked watching Jordan's strong faith and watching Aurora's faith change and grow. I enjoyed this book and I'm going to be reading at least two more in this series.
