Since I’ve become a mom I haven’t had a lot of time to read. Which is sad because I really enjoy sitting down and enjoying a good book. So when Dark Hope arrived for me to read I was excited to get back into it.
What is Dark Hope?
Dark Hope is the first book in the Archangel Prophecies Trilogy. “For years, Hope Carmichael, survivor of a shocking child abduction, has lived a sheltered existence under the protection of her fanatically religious father. Now, liberated by her mother, Hope prepares to start life over as a normal kid in an Atlanta, Georgia, high school. Normal, that is, until Hope meets Michael, a gorgeous emancipated teen with a mysterious past and a strong interest in her.
Soon, Hope’s life is filled with questions. What’s behind the angry looks she gets from Lucas, leader of a gang of students? Who’s responsible for sending Hope strange valentines inscribed with Bible quotations? How does this relate to the sinister business of human tracking that operates on the periphery of Hope’s suburban world? And is Michael really a protector, or something more sinister-and just why does he seem so familiar?
In an epic narrative that takes readers from the back streets of Atlanta to the height of Vegas penthouses and beyond, DARK HOPE introduces The Archangel Prophecies, a saga of extraordinary love, vast mythological scope, and great moral urgency.”
I am a fan of young adult novels so I had high hopes for this book. I will admit it took me the first little bit to get into it. It wasn’t that it was boring, it just didn’t have a lot of suspense as the characters stories were being built. Once I was several chapters in and I was hooked. I couldn’t put it down. I HAD to know what would happen next. That is when I breezed through the book in a matter of days.
This book is very well written and I like how the author Monica McGurk describes things in such a deep way that I actually feel like I am there and can see the characters and the atmospheres she describes. She also does a great job of making it so you can’t put the book down and are very invested in the characters, especially the lead character Hope. I found myself pulling for her, worrying about her and wanting everything to work out well for her.
The book ended with me wanting more and I honestly can’t wait until the next book comes out because I am dying to know what will happen next to Hope and Michael and the prophecy. I will be buying it the day it comes out!
If you are a fan of the Twilight series of books then you will LOVE Dark Hope and the other 2 books in the Archangel Prophecies! I was fan of the Twilight series and while they are very different in storyline and characters they have the same type of excitement, romance and suspense.
You can purchase Dark Hope online now and I highly recommend you do (you won’t be disappointed).
