Illumine (The Illumine Series)

Illumine  - Alivia Anders This is the third installment of the Illumine Series. I have been eagerly awaiting it's release! Needless to say, I absolutely LOVED it!Essallie Hanley is a fantastic character. She is part Nephilim (half human, half angel), who has been hunted by the Queen for her blood. Having been captured, she is faced with the deadly consequences of the Queen's plan. Will she be strong enough to survive?Ari is also a fantastic character. He is also a Nephilim. He has his own secrets, but I think he is definitely one of the good guys. He has a big heart, and possibly a crush on Essallie, but she has eyes for only one man.Kayden *SIGH* is a demon, summoned by Essallie's ex to kill her. However, he has his reasons for not doing so. Every time he touches Essallie, he burns, literally. When those two get together, sparks fly!This book takes up roughly where the previous book ended. I absolutely couldn't put it down! I loved the interaction between all the characters. I don't know why I have fallen for Kayden, since he's a flesh eating demon, but there is something about him that just makes me love him! He's just so sexy! Ari's not bad either, but Kayden is something else! Why is it all the best ones are book characters? This is a fast paced story that has a few twists that kept me on the edge of my seat! There is a lot of action and a major twist right at the end that completely surprised me! I hate it when authors leave you on the edge with cliffhangers, because they completely frustrate me! But I can tell you that it's BIG and left me completely stunned! I am now DYING to find out what surprises the author will come up with in the next book!Alivia Anders has written another no-holds-barred book that has captured my attention. I love her writing style. It is fast paced, but extremely fluid. As she is already on my favourite authors list, I cannot add her again, but I will certainly read any other books she writes in the future. I highly recommend this book (and series) if you love your YA Paranormal Romance full of angels, demons, mermaids (sorry, Sirens!) and other paranormal beings. - Lynn Worton
