I am a HUGE fan of the author’s Revelation Series: if you like angels, gargoyles, ancient feuds, forbidden romance, action, magical realms, and memorable characters, this is the series for you. Vernal is the first title in a new series about the next generation making their way in the world. While you would certainly benefit from reading the Revelation Series first, it is not required to understand and enjoy Vernal.
I LOVED the characters and how they interact. There’s snark, humor, secrets, HOT romance. This series is definitely New Adult (the previous books are Young Adult with a few FANTASTIC love scenes). Vernal cranks the heat up A LOT, and is a good representation of the chemistry between Serena and her guard, Tristan.
It seems as if everyone is keeping secrets, however… and I really enjoyed how the story unfolded. I also liked the new creatures, realms, royals, and baddies. I especially enjoyed how my favorite characters from the previous books are now parents (and how apples don’t fall far from the tree).
CAN’T WAIT for the next book and all that will be in store. This author is batting a thousand when it comes to #MustReads in my opinion!
