Kenny always jokes on me because I like reading young adult fiction books even at the age of almost 30. I am not sure why I like books like Twilight, Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars, but I do. When I really like a book I get into it and do not want to put it down. That happened with the Dark Hope book by Monica McGurk. The writing just drew me in. I finished it in about 24 hours.
For years, Hope Carmichael, survivor of a shocking child abduction, has lived a sheltered existence under the protection of her fanatically religious father. Now, liberated by her mother, Hope prepares to start life over as a normal kid in an Atlanta, Georgia, high school. Normal, that is, until Hope meets Michael, a gorgeous emancipated teen with a mysterious past and a strong interest in Hope. And soon, Hope’s life is filled with questions. What’s behind the angry looks Hope gets from Lucas, leader of a gang of students? Who’s responsible for sending Hope a strange valentine inscribed with Bible quotations? How does this relate to the sinister business of human trafficking that operates on the periphery of Hope’s suburban world? And is Michael really a protector, or something more sinister—and just why does he seem so familiar? In an epic narrative that takes readers from the back streets of Atlanta to the height of Vegas penthouses and beyond, Dark Hope introduces readers toThe Archangel Prophecies, a new young adult saga that blends the feeling of Twilight with a vast mythological scope and moral urgency, as well as to Hope Carmichael—a young woman instantly memorable for her endurance, heart, and determination—and Michael, Hope’s dangerous companion who’s fated either to save Hope—or to kill her.
Dark Hope is the first book in the Archangel Prophecies Trilogy. I can not wait to read the second book in this series. It definitely leaves you wanting more at the end, but in a good way. I really, really enjoyed reading this book. The characters were awesome and the details were amazing! It combines the fantasy of angels with the reality of human trafficking. The two blend very well together and I love that she is shedding some light on the world of human trafficking. A portion of the proceeds from her book will be donated to organizations that fight human trafficking.
