Review for Midnight Angel (The Council Book 1) by Tracey A. Wood

After almost losing her life in a vicious, bloody attack. Kat Shaw, a thirty-something divorcee, discovers that there are such things as monsters. And the predator who attacked her is not human. She starts to develop unusual skills that have murderous consequences. And she becomes an unwilling witness to multiple, brutal murders, seen through the eyes a killer. Thrown into a battle of Good vs. Evil, she falls in love with two men who are not what they seem. While her attacker stalks her and continues to murder the innocent, she has to find the inner strength to take on and fight the demons from hell—to protect her family and friends while also trying to save her own life.

 Midnight Angel by Tracey A. Wood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

OK, so this book was not what I’ve expected, like at all. To say that there are two heroes but with separate time lines would be I think quite accurate. This is a PNR that is filled with lots of murder, action, love, betrayal and second chances. I loved how Kat could see through the killers eyes and how that affected on the plot and characters. It’s an amazing story but at the same time it’s a bit strange, when you think about the romantic part of the story. It’s hard to explain without giving away too many spoilers but what happens is basically that if take away all the PNR stuff, you actually get a very realistic romance story where not all is perfect and sometimes you have to make mistakes to finally get it right. Whether the mistake was on your part or on somebody elses doesn’t matter, what matters is what you learn from it and what you can do with your now new situation. I think Kat found her way to a better future in all that chaos and she managed not to turn insane by doing it, and that’s saying a lot once you’ve read the book. She’s a wonderful mother, strong but breakable at the same time, a person with a big heart and a rational woman who knows what she wants and goes for it. I wished we would have seen more time with her and her son but since the book is already not a small one that wasn’t such a huge loss.
As for the ‘men’ in her life, well…there are many and not all of them are her love insterest. That’s about all I’m going to say on this topics because as already said spoilers and all that. What I will tho is that the ending was the most confusing and quick and at the same time beautiful thing I’ve read in a long time. I hope there is a second book, since I think there are some things and questions left unsaid and unanswered, so I really really hope we will get more from the story in the future.
