The Second Sign Review and Giveaway

Bred to believe in the war between angels and demons, Gabby has come to the conclusion that love is responsible for war, jealousy, and all the other deadly sins she can think of. So when she’s exiled to the middle of nowhere for getting kicked out of her fifth school for fighting, she doesn't expect to meet Jake. Much less fall in love. But Jake is quickly drawn to the eerie beauty of her violet eyes while Gabby is unsettled by their undeniable connection.

When a demon guardian comes to collect her soul, she refuses to give it up. She’s not a demon. She can’t be. Her father and twin brother are angels. The demon gives Gabby twenty-four hours to decide her allegiance, and then starts killing her short list of friends, leaving a message behind: She is the Second Sign.

As Gabby and Jake begin to unravel the mystery behind the Second Sign, she learns Jake may be the key to saving her soul. But it means a sacrifice has to be made that will change their lives forever.

My Review

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.    Gabby is kicked out of school yet again.  Her twin brother Max and guardian Adler has “exiled” her to the dreaded lake house yet again.  Apparently Max and Gabby are special.  Max turns out to be angelic, literally, while Gabby can see angels, demons, and feel impressions people leave behind.  What is she?  You’ll have to read and find out.  Now, every birthday something bad happens so the twins celebrate together to keep Gabby safe.  Gabby’s first night at the lake, to her dismay, she meets a boy.  Immediate heart throbbing attraction ensues as she fights what she’s feeling…something polar opposite to her usual hatred.

There’s so much to love about this book! It had nonstop action, and was a constant page turner.  Not to mention the supernatural aspect.  We have angels, demons, fallen angels, witches, golems, it was awesome!  I was a little disturbed by the theme Gabby’s friends seemed to have throughout the book.  My favorite character hands down is Gabby, she’s a very dark person, scary, yet also scared.  Jake just wants to love her but she just loves to hate.  Unfortunately, I was left hanging as if I’d done one of Jake’s crazy stunts, so I hoping for a book 2, because I’m dying to know what will happen next!  If you like dark Good vs. Evil paranormal or supernatural novels, this is a great one for you!


About the Author

Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, the youngest of five, Elizabeth spent most of her younger years as an avid reader with a wild imagination which led her to write her first manuscript at the age of fourteen.

Her fascination with the paranormal was influenced by the vivid ghost and demon stories of her father, scaring the crap out of her. It also led her to ask the "what if" question that propelled her down the path of the fantastical.

But, life got in the way. Elizabeth completed a Bachelors degree in Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice at Northeastern Illinois University and works in the community strengthening families.

But her love of stories held, and in 2008 she found herself back into her storytelling roots and began writing again. Since then she's published a short story in SQ Magazine, countless musings on her blog - Chandara Writes (her muse), and completed three manuscripts.

In 2012, Elizabeth signed with Sapphire Star Publishing to release her debut novel, THE SECOND SIGN, a Dark YA Paranormal Romance, slated for an early 2013 release.

Elizabeth still resides in Chicago’s south west side with her family, a household of kids, and the bliss of chaos. The good kind.  She continues to work in the community.  You can follow her journey on her Blog chandarawrites.blogspot.com
