Jolene’s Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
My thoughts :
Being a urban fantasy junkie, I’m still shocked that I hadn’t come across this book or this author, until now. I mean, seriously she’s been around for quite a few years and while scrolling through Amazon and Goodreads, I was astounded……vampires, angels, demons….shit, where in bloody hell have I been?
Sure, I’ve been busy….well, distracted with life and all its messed up glory but I could have found solace in the worlds Author Brenda K Davies creatively paints months ago. I could have fallen deeper into my book coma and hid away behind the pages instead of getting annoyed with the books that didn’t take me far away from my reality.
Let me just start by saying that Good Intentions was fucking fantastic! Just imagine your world being flipped upside down, everything that you thought you knew and were told growing up, were lies or fabricated. The country that you love has been ripped apart by war (so you were told by news media) and now, it’s about survival. Until one day, you are traded for scrapes by your own mother and torn away from your family….it is then you learn the truth. The truth about your existence. The truth about good and evil. Angels and Demons. It is then you embark on your journey and realize your purpose. Ohhh and throw in a few sexy demons to boot.
See, pretty good shit.
One of my favorite moments: This is between River and Kobal. Kobal his helping her tune into her abilities.
If she figured out how to harvest the life around her, I was fairly certain I’d be lying in the middle of the field a hundred feet from here. She couldn’t know her fire wouldn’t have an effect on me, but if she learned how to turn that pulse of life into a weapon, she’d have me on my ass, and with the look on her face right now, she may keep me there.
“I am trying!” she snapped. “Maybe you could show me a better way to do it instead of barking at me to feel the pulse and try harder! I’m not Luke Skywalker; I can’t just feel the force like he did.”
A stab of jealousy tore through me at the mention of another man. I’d never felt jealousy before, never expected to experience the searing heat tearing through my chest and making my blood boil. My claws extended and if he’d been standing before me, I would have killed him.
“Who is this Luke?” I demanded.
She rolled her eyes. “He was a character in a movie I saw once, years ago.”
“You humans and your infatuation with fictional characters.”
Her eyes narrowed on me. The shadows rimming them made their color a deeper almost midnight purple. “You demons and your dickhead comments.”
