Blog Tour: Common Descent by Natasha Larry

Young Adult Paranormal Fantasy
Date Published: 9/16/2013

Eighteen-year old Jaycie Lerner’s telekinesis is finally in check – too bad levitating a picnic table is now a workout. Not to mention her previously dormant telepathy is back and raging out of control. As she struggles to manage her frightening power, the Dey-Vah announce they will soon reveal the supernatural world to the human race. To make matters worse, people start dropping dead all over northern Alabama. Then, a mysterious new enemy emerges.

Jaycie must elicit the help of the world’s only master vampire slayer and an assassin who converses with the voices in her head. Strengthening the Core is the only way to protect mankind from the coming vampire army, and that’s not even their most dangerous threat.

Jaycie and her family face their darkest hour when an innocent young girl serves as a pawn to form a deadly Alliance. The perfect vampire, Lilith Bradshaw, becomes an eye-opening example of how far the Alliance will go to serve their own destructive ends. The world around Jaycie plummets into darkness, and betrayals from the past threaten to undo them all.

My Review:
I have genuinely enjoyed each book in this series. In my opinion while they may not get better each time, they definitely hold their own and the series as a whole is on an equal playing field.

What I like? The world Natasha Larry has created. She has managed to use wonderful descriptions to paint a world in each of her books. She doesn't rely on her readers simply being familiar with the atmosphere already from the first two, she manages to keep the world fresh in our minds. 

What I love? The characters! They are so fun and real. I enjoy reading about them and their growth from book to book. Everything about this series just Gels together so smoothly. 

Something new? I really think that the surprises and actions were stepped up a notch in this installment. It was very exciting to read and try and guess what was coming next.
