"Protecting Truth" by Michelle Warren: Review & Giveaway

Protecting Truth
The Seraphina Parrish Trilogy Book #2 
By Michelle Warren

Seraphina’s keeping a secret from her Wandering team: she’s perfecting her fighting skills. But telling Sam and Bishop the truth would only alert them to her plan: to go back in time, save her mom, and finish what she started. With the help of Turner, Bishop’s handsome twin, she progresses toward her goal but plummets deeper into dangerous territory where the lines of friendship and romance are blurred. One passionate kiss changes everything, leading Sera to unravel a shocking web of family secrets, heartbreaking ulterior motives, and sinister agendas. Love and lies collide in a haunting climax, where the truest souls may not survive.

Protecting Truth is the second book in The Seraphina Parrish Trilogy by Michelle Warren. I have been anxious to read this book since I finished Wander Dust so I was very excited when I learned the book was available to be reviewed. This installment picks up a few months from the end of the first book and we dive right back into the action.

Where do I begin? First I have to gush that I adore Michelle Warren and this world she has crafted for us to enjoy. Just the idea of being able to go anywhere you wanted in time to witness historical events is very appealing to me. Add the romance, suspense and action and this series is absolutely perfect for me. 

The story is told from the point of view of our main character, Sera. She is such a strong, brave character and I love her. She has grown a lot since the beginning of Wander Dust as have the other characters we met. We also meet some new characters. Most notably, Bishop's twin brother, Turner. Now, I adore Bishop but Turner is a thousand times more interesting. Intense and edgy, he draws you in from the first moment you meet him. 

Bursting with action, suspense and twists that will leave you gaping in open-mouthed shock, Protecting Truth is an intense and highly enjoyable read. There isn't a dull moment in the entire book. I can't wait for the conclusion to this amazing series.

  1. I would like to go back and meet Anne Boleyn. I wish I could pick her brain about living with and loving King Henry VIII

  2. I was thinking of how to answer the question and a name popped into my head. Rosa Parks. I would love to know what made her refuse to give up her seat that day.


  3. Joan of Arc:D She had a big impact on the world, and she is inspiration to me!

  4. Hmm who would I want to meet? Wow that's kind of a tough question. My mind keeps going to Cleopatra for some reason... lol I have no idea why, but I've always wanted to know what she was like. ^__^

  5. Wow that is a hard one!! I guess either bethoveen or bach... would love to learn some piano from them... my lessons when younger only made me crave more


  6. This is impossible to answer. There are so many! Einstein, Freud, Marie Curie, Katherine Parr, Marie Antoinette, Gracie Allen, Freddie Mercury! And not just famous people...I want to meet average people living average lives. I want to see what they're all like!

  7. Marie Laveau (September 10, 1794 – June 16, 1881)... I think it would be fascinating to have lunch with her!

  8. I agree with Lemondrop...too many to choose just one. I guess if I had to choose one, I might go all the way back to Eve. If someone could tell her what consequences came with her one decision...so much sorrow and suffering might be avoided. Plus, it'd be cool to visit the world when it was brand new and undamaged.

  9. If you could go anywhere in time and meet one important person from history It would have to be Leonardo da Vinci. I would have him paint a portrait of me similar to the Mona Lisa. Although I would have him paint mine much faster than hers. Which took 4 years to finish. After every session I would write in my journal every detail as possible. Than I too would be part of history.

  10. I would love to meet Eleanor Roosevelt. She was such a big advocate for women's rights. I would be interested in her take on women of today.


We love to hear from you!
