Girls *Heart* Books Tours: Hope by Theresa M. Jones: Review, This or That Interview and Giveaway!

The Descendant Trilogy Book #1
By Theresa M. Jones
Published: February 2013

Thousands of years after the battle between the angels, Lucifer was defeated by Michael in the Heavens, the war is still being fought on Earth by the humans who have their Power, the Angel's Power.

Allison Stevens is a 21 year old single mother who gets thrown into the middle of this battle when Damien, the Leader of the Rising, decides to hunt her down and kill because he fears she is the descendant prophesied to save the world.

David, a member of the Order, takes Allison under his wing in order to show her the ropes, and hopefully groom her into being the one they have been waiting for. The only problem is that they start to grow more attached than a teacher/student relationship should allow.

But that isn't all. Damien wants to open the Seven Seals and bring about the apocalypse and it's up to Allison to not only save herself and her family, but save the world, all while trying to keep her heart from breaking.

No problem... right?

Let's be honest people. The book is new adult, involves teenage pregnancy, a chick with super powers, and a war between Heaven and Hell. This book was made with me in mind and I am sure of it.

Power is the first book in The Descendant Trilogy by Theresa M. Jones. The story centers around Allison, a single mother with a jerk fiance, and the power of Arch Angel Michael in her back pocket. The book is fast paced and a quick read, even if it is around 300 pages (which, in my mind, is the perfect legnth. I'm telling you, Jones got in my head..). 

While I did find there was a lot of explaining what happened rather than jumping right in the action, I very much enjoyed this book. The lack of dialog was easily made up for my Damien having a good chunk of the book (what can I say, I like a bad boy... *ahem*).

My Rating:

You can get Power for FREE during the duration of this tour!

The Descendant Trilogy Book #2
By Theresa M. Jones
Published: April 29th, 2013

Allison now understands who she is and where she comes from, but will it be enough to save the world? She went through a dangerous journey, dragging her young daughter along for the ride, in an attempt to stop the evil Rising Leader, Damien, from opening the Seven Seals and bringing about the Apocalypse.

But she hasn't succeeded yet. The Rising still thrives and Lilith has made it her mission to open the remaining Seals so that she and her minions can rule the Earth.

David and Allison hope that love can conquer all, but in reality, love is never enough. Will they, along with the rest of the gang back at the Compound, be able to stop the Rising?

And where is The Descendant that is prophesied to save them all?
Now, this is where I started to notice this book strongly resembles my favorite show in the universe-- Supernatural. Apocalypse. Lilith. It's just a single mom and her beau instead of two brothers. Now while the brothers are hotter, IMO. But hey. What can you do.

Enough about Supernatural, I'm not reviewing that. Okay. Well... To be honest this kind of felt a lot like Power. (No that does not mean I didn't like it.) I feel like it kind of spread together and got a little sappy for my liking. 

Though I do still recommend, and I will definitely be reading the last installment!
