Review: Dark Seraphine (Seraphine Trilogy #1) by KaSonndra Leigh

Book Blurb

**Prequel to the Amazon Bestelling Lost Immortals Saga**

Also Includes Assassin's Rose: A Short Story that takes place in the world of the Lost Immortals

"Mom always says the angels walk among us. She forgot to tell me that sometimes they're not all fluffy and nice."

Seventeen-year-old Caleb Wood has seen people he calls the walkers since he was a baby. It didn't take long for him to realize something…no one can see these strangers but him. They never stuck around or tried to touch him. And they never said a word. That was until one day on the first day of class in his senior year when an incredibly gorgeous girl strolls into his life…and things are never the same again.

Soon Caleb realizes he has stepped into the middle of a growing conflict between two ancient groups. And his ability to see the invisible ones, the half-breeds that want to modify the human race, just might be the only hope both he and the mysterious, but infuriating, Gia, have of making it out alive.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

In this first book of the Seraphine Trilogy, Caleb can see what he calls walkers.  He thinks they are ghosts.  He sees them but they have never talked to him, until her.  He sees a strange girl with dark hair which isn’t shocking to him except when she talks to him.  He is completely surprised.  In fact she keeps popping in whenever she wants.  Of course no one can see her.  Caleb thinks he may be going crazy finally.
However things aren’t what they seem.  The mystery ghost girl shows up at school with her group of friends.  She is going by Gia.  Caleb is torn.  Erica apparently really likes him but he is drawn to Gia.  Things are confusing and Gia gives mixed signals.
Something else is going on.  The black trench coat wearing shadow men show up in town.  Paige, one of Gia’s crew, turns on her and comes after Caleb. The closer Caleb gets to Gia the more he is drawn into her world.  Until the truth comes out that he was always connected in some way.
A war is coming between good and evil.  Caleb finds himself in the middle sacrificing what he needs to in order to help.
This story was interesting.  I liked the storyline, however, it got confusing in some places.  I was just as frustrated as Caleb was.  Only my source of frustration was trying to figure out some parts of the story.

The author didn’t give very much information until farther into the story.  So the path to get there was unclear at times.  Trying to figure out what was really going on and why was a constant battle.  I shared Caleb’s confusion over Gia’s behavior.  Plus something was going on with Caleb but nothing really was explained.  Gia was the cause of it but what was it?  Did he go back to normal in the end?  I had more questions at the end of the book than I liked.  I give this book a 3 out of 5.
