Monsters & Angels
by Anne Marie Andrus
Publication date: October 11th 2017
Genres: Historical, New Adult, Paranormal Romance
Fledgling nurse Sorcha Alden knew she had the skills to save lives, but she never dreamed that her own life would be the one in danger.
Driven by tragedy to honor her family name, Sorcha embarks on a journey that takes her from the bleak but familiar streets of New York, through the sultry and seductive city of New Orleans, and into the brutal jungles of Nepal. Forging friendships and carrying on her mother’s mission of healing was her dream. Plunging into a love affair with the mysterious Dr. Ashayle could have been a fairytale.
Being murdered and waking up as a blood-thirsty monster—became her living nightmare.
Torn away from a life that had just begun, Sorcha returns to New Orleans as a newborn vampire, forced to start over in a cutthroat underworld of devilry and decadence. Complicated politics, bitter rivals and jealous ancestors stand between her and the promises she’s still determined to keep.
In a realm where the boundary between good and evil is as murky as the Mississippi River and immortal does not mean invincible, will Sorcha ever risk her shattered heart and love again? Can the magical harmony of the Crescent City give her enough courage to fulfill her eternal destiny?
Anne Marie has been an equestrienne, chorale singer, candy-striper, EMT, and baseball fan. Roaming the back roads of New Jersey with her family, she found great respect for antiques, historical locations and the stories they hold. Her current list of favorite pastimes include coffee, bourbon, and Les Miserables–which requires more bourbon. She has been known to attend sporting events just for the flyover. The boat she and her husband christened Glory Days, is her escape from the chaos of everyday life.
The inspiration for Anne Marie’s debut novel, Monsters & Angels, is her fascination with vampires and her passion for everything New Orleans. When she isn’t writing, she can be found working nights with the critical care team in a busy trauma center.
Review: Going into reading Monsters and Angels, I knew that this was the right time of year to be sitting back and reading a spooky story with plenty of paranormal elements. For me, Monsters and Angels features vampires which I personally don’t read a lot of bookwise since my feelings surround that particular genre are mixed but what really stood out to me with this book was the setting and visual elements when New Orleans came into the storyline, I personally love all things New Orleans as well and knowing that the author has a passion for that as well, clearly stood out in the story.
The main character Sorcha is a nurse originally from New York but it is in Nepal that she gets murdered and then reborn as a vampire. Mixing with the new faces in her life as well as old acquaintances such as Vir who Sorcha falls in love with.
It was the cover that orginally compelled me to give this story a go. If you love vampire novels and want to be spooked, this is the book to go too. I read an ePub version which was long in length BUT had short chapters making the story easy to read. The ending however… Dun dun dun is all I can say XD
