YA Reads Blog Tours Presents: The Revelation & Restraint Tour + Giveaway

Revelation by Randi Cooley Wilson
Published May 1st, 2014
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance
Pages: 314

Eve Collins starts her freshman year at college blissfully unaware that one revelation will challenge everything she’s believed to be true about her family, life, and future, and right in the midst of it all is Asher St. Michael.

Mysterious and aloof, Asher is appointed to protect Eve at all costs. Bound by his oath of loyalty to mankind, loving her is forbidden.
Dark and enigmatic, Gage Gallagher may be even more dangerous to Eve than the demonic army that hunts her.

Caught in the middle of a centuries old war, Eve must choose sides knowing that the wrong choice will cost more than just her life.
Can Asher and Eve fulfill their destinies or will their love destroy everything?

Revelation is a journey of self-discovery, love, and sacrifice.
This is volume one of a series.

My Thoughts
It all begins with a terrifying dream that young college freshman Eve Collins can't seem to escape or begin to understand.
Revelations really manages to live to its name.  Not only do we as readers get to find out about Eve, and all of the weird and wonderful ways that her life changes as she finds out about her connection to the supernatural and all the creatures therein.  We also get to find out about her "ooooh sooo HAWT" guardian Asher; with whom it seems she has a "I want you so bad I can taste it, but we can't..."  thing going that fills both the lovebirds and readers with enough angst to make book...or in my case tablet throwing a distinct possibility at several points.
Making matters worse for poor Eve, but decidedly more deliciously complex for her clamoring audience, is the addition of bad boy Gage.
Hmmmm...what's a girl to do?
Well, I cant tell you that.  You'll have to read the book, of course!
What I can tell you however, is that Eve is not one to sit and wait to be rescued, and as such provides readers with a good amount to worry, obsess, and WTF over.
Not to be outshown in any way; the supporting cast in this paranormal drama do a wonderful job at providing just the right boost the story needs, at just the right time.  Whether it be someone to love, Aria, or someone who you just want to throttle, Kenna.  You just can't help wanting more.
This is a very well written and balanced story, that is careful to never allow any one story element to dominate reader focus.
The supernatural pantheon is also expanded in this read to include gargoyles in a major role!
Though the action and suspense is allowed to build considerably as you near the book's end; there is no rush to the finish to mar what is a nice cliffhanger.

My Thoughts
This book is all about the tension, baby!  Sexual...that is!
The boundaries are being tested on all fronts for Eve, and I must say that she is more than proving challenge worthy.
Not only is Lucifer coming for her, fangs out and swords ablazin'.  Things are also getting considerably *ahem* steamer on team Asher and Eve.
Things are a lot more emotional for all involved this time around with the loss of Aria, so moments of levity shared with Callan and Abby...complete with sessions of therapeutic 'baking', provide much needed smiles.
Gage makes a rather eye opening appearance this time around, and we get a much needed "glimpse behind the mask" that helps to better understand him.
There is so much to say, explain, relate, about how the story deepens and evolves in what is truly a great second book.  In the interest of maintaining some shred of reviewer objectivity however, I must bite my overly eager tongue and allow you to embark upon this wondrous journey for yourself.

  1. A completely new series for me but so great to hear that the second book lives up to the promise of the first. That's difficult to do. Thanks.
