The right consort will unlock her magic. The wrong one will make her a prisoner.
Forty-three. That’s how many frogs Angela McAllister has kissed since she turned twenty-one. And it’s not for fun — she’s searching for the green-eyed man who haunts her dreams, the man she’s sure is fated to be her consort when she becomes the next prima of her witch clan.
Without that magical connection, she’ll never be able to access her full powers. Worse, as long as she’s an unattached virgin, she’s vulnerable to being kidnapped and manipulated by the rival Wilcox clan.
The clock is ticking, because upon her twenty-second birthday, the window of opportunity to find her mate will close forever, leaving her magic diminished and her clan vulnerable. It doesn’t help her growing sense of urgency that a malevolent spirit is stalking her, and the only guy who sparks that special attraction isn’t a witch at all. Just a handsome, dark-eyed, all-too-human college student.
On the eve of her birthday, the Wilcox clan makes their move, and it becomes all too clear that someone has betrayed Angela’s trust in the worst possible way….
Note: Darkangel is part one of the “The Witches of Cleopatra Hill,” the first series set in USA Today Bestselling Author Christine Pope’s witches and warlocks universe! It ends on a cliffhanger leading into the next installment, Darknight. Other interconnected series in the ’verse include “The Witches of Wheeler Park” and “The Witches of Canyon Road.”
Super fantastic amazing but...
The plot is well thought out and consistent throughout the story. The characters are sympathetic - you feel the love, despair, desperation, sorrow, and guilt. This reads a bit like a YA book but is written well enough to be enjoyed by adults.
-1 star. The end has a soft-core cliff-hanger. While a largest part of the plot is dedicated to a goal, which is achieved, it is done so in the very last few pages of the book and this book ends before the story's climax concludes. If you want to feel like the story is satisfactorily ended you will need to start the next book in the trilogy. It's such a great story that it's hard to resist so be ready to shell out for the other books!
Not a good read
I tried to enjoy this book-it had a good plot to begin with, but the author didn’t seem to be able to mesh it all together enough for me to get into it like other books I’ve read. I hope I’m not being to ugly about it-it just wasn’t a good read
The beginning was extremely slow, and at the end there is hardly any animosity between Conner and Angela. It really is annoying, because where is the reality? If you were kidnapped, would you just stand around talking with your kidnapper? I certainly hope not. This book was pretty good though, but like I said before. Way. To. Slow.
