About Trinity Stones

Series: The Angelorum Twelve Chronicles
Paperback: 366 pages
Publisher: She Writes Press (April 22, 2014)
 
A thrilling debut novel that explores the impact of free will on the forces that sway our fate, and the most powerful force of all—love.


The struggle between good and evil is eternal, but modern science offers an opportunity to upset the balance. Set in a refreshingly current environment, Trinity Stones: The Angelorum Twelve Chronicles (She Writes Press / $18.95 / April 2014), by L.G. O’Connor, is the thrilling first story in this series about humans and angels brought together to fight a final battle against the Dark Ones.

New York investment banker, Cara Collins, has little to smile about on her 27th birthday. Her boss is a misogynistic pig and the love of her life is married to someone else. Top that off with a creepy man in the subway and then a homeless woman on the street grabbing her and asking to be healed, and Cara’s panic disorder rears it’s ugly head.  Cara wonders if things could get any worse until a mysterious letter arrives announcing she’s inherited $50 million–which must remain secret or those close to her could die. As Cara unravels the truth surrounding her inheritance, she makes a startling discovery: angels walk among the living, and they’re getting ready to engage in a battle that will determine the future of the human race. In the midst of these revelations, she meets the mysterious and sophisticated Simon who stirs her sleeping heart and offers her another chance at romance. But when the love of her life and his daughter are kidnapped by dark forces, Cara must choose: accept her place in a 2,000-year-old prophecy foretold in the Trinity Stones as the First of the Twelve who will lead the final battle between good and evil . . . or risk losing everything she holds dear.

Captivating and thrillingly romantic, Trinity Stones captures the eternal struggle of good and evil and the occasional need to bend the rules for the most important force of all: love.

Review


Cara is celebrating her twenty-seventh birthday, and it's turning out to be quite the day because of a letter she receives from her long-dead grandmother. Thanks to several new people who enter her life suddenly, and one who has always been there, she discovers the truth about who she is and what she'll need to face.


There's a battle brewing, and Cara will be at the center of it. Fortunately, there are those who will fight with her--angels and their chosen allies. Along the way, she finds love; but this love is not only forbidden, it's also a dangerous distraction. 


Trinity Stones is a thrill ride from start to finish. In addition to a fast-paced story and intriguing plot twists, it's full of memorable characters and fascinating creatures. Every word adds to the complexity and richness of the story. If you blink, you've missed an important detail. When I reached the last page, I felt breathless but also excited to read the next in the series.


Plus, I loved that it was adult without pushing into erotica (although I wouldn't recommend for teens based on language and situations). There was a maturity to the emotions and storyline I appreciated.


If you are looking for an exciting read, but one that also has romance and captivating characters, this is a great option.
Rating: 4.5 stars
