Book Review: Always and Forever (Secrets of Shadow Hill) by S.P. Cervantes

aandw

Yet another paranormal romance.  I love these books.  Here is the synopsis:

Twin sisters Ava and Hannah were ripped from their peaceful seeming lives into a whirlwind of attacks and war only to learn the real truth about their existence. 
Nothing was as it seemed anymore and may never be again. They had already lost their father in childhood now they have to cope with their mother’s kidnapping as they watch those sworn to protect them risk their lives.

This book is very sweet, very romantic, and a bit of a page turner.

It is definitely written for YA, no explicit sex of any kind.

The author completely sucked me into the world of Shadow Hill, the people, the history.  I love the descriptions of different parts of the world, the structure of their society and the relationships between those in the coven.

I loved reading about the relationship between Ava and Dalton, as well as Ava and her twin.  I even enjoyed the “love triangle”.  I can still remember those emerging late adolescent feelings for my husband.  The author captures these feelings very well and uses a unique way to convey them.

The book is written from the point of view of Ava and Dalton in alternating chapters.  This is very refreshing and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

In terms of the “magic”, it isn’t as dark as some other books in the genre, and the magic is actually based in Christianity.  The action is very well organized and explained, even when it is very heated and everything is going on at once.

I really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to reviewing the second book in this series.
