Nephilim walk among us. Descendants of Angels who just want to live their lives without humans knowing they exist. Some of them anyway. Then there are the ones who want to rule over us. Like in the days of old, they want to be considered our ‘gods’.

My name is Nova Quinn. I’m a photographer… and human.

Well, I was.

Now I’m fighting for my life. I wasn’t supposed to survive but I did. Caught in a world where ‘superhuman’ abilities are normal, it’s hard enough trying to get a grip on this new reality. But when the other side shows up and wants to use my genetics for their experiments, suddenly it’s no longer enough to know Nephilim exist…I have to be one.

My name is Nova Quinn.

And I’m the created Nephilim.

UnHappenings by Edward Aubry Review Tour


UnHappenings by Edward Aubry
Genre: Literary Fiction, Science Fiction, Science Fiction Romance
Publisher: Curiosity Quills Press
Date of Release­­: January 8, 2015
Cover Artist: Andy Garcia

Pre-Order:  Amazon

When Nigel Walden is fourteen, the UNHAPPENINGS begin. His first girlfriend disappears the day after their first kiss with no indication she ever existed. This retroactive change is the first of many only he seems to notice.

Several years later, when Nigel is visited by two people from his future, he hopes they can explain why the past keeps rewriting itself around him. But the enigmatic young guide shares very little, and the haggard, incoherent, elderly version of himself is even less reliable. His search for answers takes him fifty-two years forward in time, where he finds himself stranded and alone.

And then he meets Helen.

Brilliant, hilarious and beautiful, she captivates him. But Nigel’s relationships always unhappen, and if they get close it could be fatal for her. Worse, according to the young guide, just by entering Helen’s life, Nigel has already set into motion events that will have catastrophic consequences. In his efforts to reverse this, and to find a way to remain with Helen, he discovers the disturbing truth about the unhappenings, and the role he and his future self have played all along.

Equal parts time-travel adventure and tragic love story, Unhappenings is a tale of gravely bad choices, and Nigel’s struggle not to become what he sees in the preview of his worst self.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3 crazy hard to follow at times stars!

DNF at 22%

This book was hard to follow with the elaborate fantasy world, drugs, and arrogant werwolves.  As well as a whole other slew of creatures.  I rated this a three because at times the writing was beautiful and I did enjoy the strong heroine QuiTai.  I really really wanted to like this book more.  I have read MANY paranormal fantasy books and though this had potential I just found myself bored at times.

I really tried. I read 60% and realized that I was daydreaming in the middle of it. I loved the concept but the execution left me confused. I didn’t feel like the pace flowed well enough to keep me entertained. Sorry 🙁 I really had high hopes for this one!

This book was given to me for a fair and honest review.

3 Crazy and Cool stars!

This book was given to me for a fair and honest review

Oh Maggie your writing is beautiful. You could describe a dead bug and make it sound amazing. I just have a hard time grasping the storyline. Probably because I have never read anything like it. It was refreshing but difficult to follow at times.

I wish I would have read a little more spark with Blue’s romantic endeavors. (I’ll leave it at that. You will just have to read it to find out what I mean by that ;))

The story starts off where the first ones left off. Cabeswater has mysteriously disappeared and Adam is acting very strange since the ritual. Ronan Lynch we learn a lot more about. Which is cool because I really like him. He is plagued by nightmares that involve strange creatures. He has the ability to “steal” from his dreams but never has the ability tot control what he will dream about until he meets Kavinsky. The crazy hot head Evo driving asshole. He shows him a thing or two and gives Ronan the ability to dream up what he wants.

There is also the Gray man whom we don’t learn about his true identity until later in the book. He is mysterious but I really liked his no nonsense character.

Like I said I will have to shelve these and re-read when the third installment comes out sometime next year. But I am glad that I read them. Maggie is a pen Goddess hehe.
