Thousands of years after the battle between the angels, when 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 her 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?

POWER is the first book in a New Adult (Mature YA) Paranormal Romance Trilogy and is the debut novel for author Theresa M Jones.

My Review

Power is the first book in a new paranormal romance series and it does not let you down on either point. Though it took me a while to warm up to the book, by the end I was begging for more!

In the beginning I was a little worried about the book. It seemed interesting, but the writing didn't grab me like I'd wanted. By the halfway point the writing and book had completely grabbed me and I was hanging on to every word.

The story focused around Allison but we also got to read from different characters P.O.V's throughout the story. David and Allison were my two favourite P.O.V's, especially seeing each of them through the other's eyes. Their scenes were fantastic to read together from either perspective.

My favourite character was Samantha. She's Allison's child and amazingly bright for her tiny age. She was bossy and clever and had the beautiful innocence of a child. She was a delight to read and though I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the characters grow and develop, it's Sammy I look forward to learning more of the most.

There are a lot of paranormal romances around now but this was more than your usual vampires and werewolves. It involved God and angels/demons but it was in a very clever way, not preachy but definitely giving you a definition of good and evil. It was fun and powerful and I found it hard to put down. I cannot wait for Theresa to write more!
