BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY - Everlasting (Night Watchmen #1) by Candace Knoebel


Book & Author details:

Everlasting by Candace Knoebel
(Night Watchmen #1)
Publication date: February 19th 2014
Genres: Paranormal Romance, Young Adult


Synopsis:

What if your destiny lay on the other side of death?

The annual Culling ceremony is a day every coming-of-age novice looks forward to within the Primeval Coven. It’s the start to being initiated into the Night Watchmen, humankind’s protectors, and it’s the long-awaited day when novices discover if they’re a Hunter or a Witch.

But this day is not a happy one for Faye Middleton. Not when she’s known her whole life that she’s a Defect and is about to face banishment in front of her fellow novices. She’s forced to attend the Culling with little hope for her future, but what she discovers about herself is far worse than she could’ve imagined. And far more dangerous.

Thrown into training and separated from her friends, Faye must learn to adjust. She struggles to find her place within the Coven, and with Jaxen Gramm, the darkly handsome and extremely unnerving man assigned to watch and protect her. Emotions run high, and when she discovers a deadly secret about him, her struggles deepen. As corruption within the Coven begins to unravel, Faye pieces together her role in saving the future of her people, and within Jaxen’s life…but will the truth save her, or be her undoing?

***** out of 5 (loved it)



Faye has grown up knowing that her life will change when she is eighteen and on Samhain. She expects it to go one way as her mother has had visions for years about the outcome (no spoilers!) but instead it goes a completely new way and throws her world into complete chaos. She has help along the way with new friends as well as old, although her relationship with Katie is tested. The supporting characters in this are fantastic in their own right.

What Faye goes through changes her from a timid church mouse into a girl with kick ass attitude, who talks the talk and walks the walk. In short, absolutely brilliant.

There is a love triangle in this although it does have a slight twist to the usual take on it. This also made the storyline intriguing as you were reading it. The tension builds up at a pace that will keep you turning the page for "just a little bit more!"

This is a thrilling fantasy about good vs. evil where nothing and no one is as it seems. I now need to read Evernight, book 2 in the Night Watchmen series, but I also want The Gramm Curse which is book 0.5. Highly recommended.
