Review: Purgatory Reign by L.M Preston


Purgatory Reign Book Summary:

Something evil this way comes...sadly for it, Peter Saints awaits.

Peter Saint's life stinks. But things are about to get much worst. First, his parents are murdered in front of him. Then another victim dies in his arms. Visions plague Peter with warnings that something wants him for a sinister cause. It desires the one thing that Peter refuses to give—his blood. Peter carries within him the one gift or curse that could unlock a secret to destroy the human race. On the run with Angel, a scruffy kid, Peter starts to unravel the mystery. It's the one treasure the heavens sought to hide from the world. Unfortunately, when Peter finds the answer that he hopes will save the girl he loves, he opens the door to a great evil that happens to be salivating to meet him.
 
My review
 
I really like it when I find a book I can't put down. Although it took some time to get into the story, once I was halfway through, I didn't want to stop reading until I reached the end because I had absolutely no idea where it was going - and that's always a good thing!

There were moments that felt rushed, most especially the romance angle, and parts that took a little too long to get to the point BUT overall, I really enjoyed reading about Peter's journey. He is one cool kid, and you can't help but root for him. His camaradarie with his friends provided some great moments and it will be interesting to see where the story goes next!
 
 
 L.M. Preston's Bio:
L.M. Preston loved to create poetry and short-stories as a young girl. She worked in the IT field as a Techie and Educator for over sixteen years. Her passion for writing science fiction was born under the encouragement of her husband who was a Sci-Fi buff and her four kids.

She loves to write while on the porch watching her kids play or when she is traveling, which is another passion that encouraged her writing.

  2. Sounds like a great book! I'm always a little irritated when a romance in a book is rushed. I want it to linger a little and feel more real to me as the reader. :)
