Summary: BOOK ONE IN THE BESTSELLING STAINED SERIES:
Seventeen-year-old Julia is finally living the good life. She's traded a hard cot in a Memphis orphanage for her very own room in a perfect little house, on a perfect little street, with a perfect set of parents who picked her to be their daughter.
But Julia is hiding a secret - and one fall night, she returns home from a friend's house to find that her secret has found her. Her 'forever home' is ashes. Her parents are dead. And, in the sky above the flames, a winged creature hunts her.
The Nephilim King, Samyaza, has taken everything from Cayne. After struggling in the darkness for years to piece together his shattered life, Cayne is finally ready to confront his past and avenge the loss of everything he loved. He tracks Samyaza to a Memphis warehouse, where he winds up flat on his back, in the healing hands of a beautiful, dark-haired girl he doesn't need to know.
Unbeknownst to either of them, they are already bound. Cayne's past holds the answers to Julia's future. But what will pose the greatest threat to her? The bounty placed on her head by the leaders of two Celestial realms, or giving her heart to a man who is bound, by birth, to break it?
How bad am I? I have never read any of this series, I have heard such great things that I thought hey go & get it girl, I am sooooo very happy I did, I loved this story, I really can’t wait to get stuck into book 2 Stolen, I totally fell in love with Cayne, he was the star of the book for me, The author did a fantastic job, he had enough troubles in his life to make him a better person, I like that, inner turmoil, always makes for a good character bio. I loved how this was a road book, travelling all over looking for Samyaza, I loved all the names, the action was great, just the right amount for this book, I thought. I am slightly upset with the ending, Why oh why? I read this into the morning and was just abit upset that it ended like it did, if you love a good cliffhanger, this one is for you, I ended up dreaming about how things turned out, which was not a bad thing in the end, I suppose but at 3.30am, oh I was cursing you, lol, would recommend to all my friends, well those that have not read it yet, 4.5/5
