The revolutionary year following Serenay “Ren” Avalon’s eighteenth birthday could rival Clark Kent’s entire adolescence. After her mother and her grandmother were killed in a car bomb explosion at the heart of their sleepy hillside town where nothing extraordinary usually happens, she discovers that her mother is actually alive and in hiding, her long lost father is a Father, and her best friend, who turns out was once an Archangel, has taken a gargantuan step back in his evolution to live on Earth with her for the past thirteen lifetimes. And besides being the only one in her immediate circle with a serious case of past life dementia, she learns that during her first lifetime, she was married to one of the greatest teachers history has ever known who is now the gorgeous lead singer of a hot new rock band taking the world by storm, and who is keen to meet up with her again in the twenty first century.

As Ren realizes that the powerful family name she bears also brings with it the promise of an unnatural death, she is reminded that it has always brought hope to people on both sides of the veil, human and Tor. As the world draws closer to being completely shrouded by the dark cloaks of her age-old enemies, the Bloodstones, she now, more than ever before, has to draw strength from her origins to protect her family and their ancient truth from this global force responsible for torturing and killing centuries of her ancestors. As she struggles to unearth who she was, who she is, and who she chooses to be, as well as the expectations of her first mortal love and the heavenly love she has always guiltily denied, she has until midnight on the Solstice find a way to bring light to a compromised heart and to a world on the brink of perpetual darkness.

This first book in The Rosefire Trilogy is a reminder of how the choices we make in the throes of love, loss, hope, and adversity are what makes the divine human, and the human divine.

I have to say first is that I did enjoy this book, alot, liked the characters and all that. But had one issue, and this could be my fault, but I had trouble catching on to what was going on. I got confused often, and just had trouble grasping it all. I wonder if it's just me, or will others also have this issue.

The prologue was great, but then the confusion hit when I started into the rest of the book. Took me awhile to figure out that we were reading more about the child (i think) from Prologue. If   I am right, then thats cool, but maybe that could have been a bit clearer for us.

I usually can grasp books storylines better than  I did this one. I guess its the remembering past lives she has to do that got me confused. I was not always sure when I was reading about her. Also there is so many questions, many that I feel should have been addressed in this book, but maybe they will be told in the next book. I did get pulled into this world the author created, and still really enjoyed it. I wasn't pleased at the end, as I really do not like to be left hanging, so hope the next book wont be too long of a wait.

I still recommend this book, because even though I was a bit confused, doesn't mean everyone would be.
I give this book 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest review.

This review is also at Amazon, and Goodreads

Some of you have asked what Ren, Mike, and Josh look like, so I have attached the pics I have on up my study wall: the ones I gazed at back when I was writing THE 13TH DESCENT, and now as I am in the process of writing the sequel! These pics are frighteningly close to the Ren, Mike, and Josh I have always seen in my head, and my interpretation of their public personas together with where they hail from has a little something to do with it too...

Our feisty protagonist and trail blazer, REN - the naturally beautiful and talented Aussie girl, Isabel Lucas 

Resident Archangel Royal who has loved and fought alongside Ren for 13 lifetimes, MIKE - the new world boy with an old world heart whose physical strength is only a precursor to the strength he holds within, Henry Cavill

Once a great leader history has written countless stories about, who, these days, is the front man of a popular local rock band quickly going global, JOSH - a straight talking, innovative, warm hearted, hot Scot with a smile that'll make you stutter, Sam Heughan 

Some of you have asked about what Benni Dhoo looks like...where to begin...he's a unique one...I think I'll have to get someone to draw him for me! Will keep you posted :-)

Love and best wishes to you and yours, Ky xx
