BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY - Sing For Me by Gracie Madison

Book & Author details:

Sing For Me by Gracie Madison 
Publication date: January 23rd 2015
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal Romance

Synopsis:

Madeline Noel fled war-torn Heaven to hide within the mortal world, but the blessing that could protect her from evil is the holy realm’s forbidden power.

As a talented soprano for the Eden Theatre Company, Madeline hides among prima donnas and tone-deaf flutists. Her perfect voice may entertain audiences, but a careless laugh may shatter glass, and her greatest scream can kill. To control her unrestrained voice, the angels forbid Madeline from embracing the emotions that strengthen her song. Anger. Fear.

Love.

The demon-hunter Damascus vows to defend Madeline from Hell’s relentless evil, but he cannot protect her from her own feelings. Though they deny their dangerous attraction, her guardian becomes her greatest temptation.
Surrendering to desire may awaken the gift suppressed within Madeline’s soul, and neither Heaven nor Hell will allow such absolute power to exist.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books.

Madeline is Choir. And Choir are being murdered by Corinth. So to hide and stay safe, she retreats to the mortal world with her Hunter and protector, Damascus. But Damascus and Madeline feel for each other far more than they should, than they are allowed to. And if Madeline finds her true voice and sings with the emotion long denyed her, she could kill them both.

A very different take on the good/evil, angels/dmons theme, that is hard to come by these days. A very welcome different take.

Written from the POV's of all the major players, this book grabbed me from the start. There is no massive information dump, that sometimes comes with the first in a series, and I loved that. You get little bits, and hints and snippets as to whats going on, the bigger picture. Because there IS a bigger picture, a larger, longer plot line that I expect to run through more books. Someone is killing Choir, Corinth, and he has labelled Madeline, Magdala, as next, along with Natalie, Madeline's best friend. Natalie is Prophet, and should only speak when spoken to, although Natalie doesnt quite know what being Prophet fully entails. Shiloh and Tyre arrived to help Damascus protect bothe Madeline and Natalie. Oh, I could go on, but I might give the game away!

I would say one thing that stopped it from getting 5 stars, The role of Natalie, as Prophet was not fully explained, as Madeline's Choir and Damascus' Hunter role were. I'm hoping that comes in the next book, which is about Natalie. This is billed as book one in the series, and I hope I get to read any future books.

It doesnt have that hot and sweaty sex that some paranormal books come with, but it does have passion, and feeling and emotion. The scenes between Madeline and Damascus are beautifully written, encompassing all the being Choir truly means.
