 Title: The Seer’s Lover (The Seven Archangels Series)

Author: Kat De Falla

 

For years, Calise Rowe has been able to sense unusual energy from people, making her believe she is different. Pulled into an ancient war raging for centuries between demon hunters and seers, she’s about to find out she’s right.

Her search for the truth leads her to Lucas Rojas, a seer of angels and demons who walk the earth shrouded from normal human eyes. He’s hidden his gift for years and refuses to endanger Calise by sharing it with her.

In the sultry Costa Rican Jungles, their worlds collide. As their passion and desire ignite, so does the ancient war between demons and seers. Will their combined efforts be enough to save themselves and the entire human world, or will their new found love be their downfall?

She traced a circle in the sand with her finger.



Why would she disclose her whole existence to someone she’d just met? Someone who talked so little about himself that she found herself talking to fill the void. Saying things she could barely admit in her own head.



His hand covered hers. “I’m lonely, too. Getting to know you this week has been the brightest point in my life and I don’t want you to leave, but I know the only place you’ll be safe is far away from me.”



She swallowed. He had read her mind.



He lay down on his back and closed his eyes. “Cali, you know when you hear a song for the first time and you kind of ingest it? You can’t possibly know right away that it will be one of your favorite songs for the rest of your life. A classic.”



“Yeah.” She hoped he was going somewhere good with this.



“That first listen,” he continued, “you pick up a little of the melody and some lyrics that catch you. But when the song ends, you have to hear it again because you want to memorize all the words and sing along. After you hear it a few times and learn the words inside and out, then you begin to let the melody seep inside you. Next thing you know, you’ve completely digested the song and find yourself humming it while you are doing nothing, like shaving or driving your car. Finally, the song becomes so ingrained it becomes a part of you. Forever. You can recall it and it’s with you whenever you need it. Am I making any sense?”



She nodded, blinking back the tears fighting to fall.



“Cali, I don’t want you to go back because you’re my favorite song.”


 



So what happens when your intuition is not just your intuition? When gut feelings turn out to be right, when the sensation that something evil lurks among us happens to be the truth? What happens when you find out that the ideas, feelings, and thoughts that made you seem crazy were based on a deeper understanding of the world around us? Calise Rowe is about to find out that the world she thought she knew is nothing but a shade dimming out the truth and the people closest to her are not who they seem.


Calise or Cali has always had a sense for things, a bad feeling about someone or a calm feeling about someone else. During one late night at her job she has a run in with not one but two strangers that turn her world upside down and send her on a journey to Costa Rica to find out her true nature. A journey that will take her down a path where there is no turning back and going forward could cost her, her life.


But Cali is not alone and on her journey she meets Lucas. A sexy sun-kissed delectable man with secrets of his own and a connection to Cali’s quest for the truth. As her and Lucas continue to get closer to each other they find it hard to resist the connection that burns between their hearts and soon Lucas is met with a decision. Protect Cali from the truth and send her away from him or help her to understand what she has always felt, that Demons and Angels walk among us and she has been given the gift to sense the difference.  As Cali learns more about Lucas and the gifts they share she is dragged further into the war between good and evil, one that will test every ounce of her courage and strength of the love in her heart.


There were so many things to love about this book. This book had a fantastically creative plot. I loved the linkage between the present and the past especially how De Falla utilized the stories from the bible. I think it provided a very strong foundation for many of the aspects of the story like the artifacts, prophecies and Angelic names. I also loved the flashbacks in the story; they flowed easily and allowed the reader to gain insight into the past of the characters without detracting from the present storyline.  It was just enough to satisfy the reader’s curiosity into the characters’ history. The descriptions of the locations from the weather, to the sights, sounds and smells were immensely well done. I could literally hear, see and feel the ocean while I was reading.   


So after all this you may ask why I didn’t give the book five stars, so let me explain.  Though the plot was creative and the descriptions were phenomenal, I felt some things in the book were rushed. There seemed to be a lot going on at all times of the novel, it felt as if everything was always happening all at once without time to breathe or actually take it all in. It was as if the book was action packed to a flaw. At some points months would pass by between two chapters it just moved a little too quickly for my liking. I wished there was more time spent on the relationship development between Lucas and Calise. Though I felt their love was genuine, in the novel it happened really fast and as a reader I wanted to enjoy it more. I think De Falla could have lingered more on some of what was taking place, I don’t want to go into too much detail as it would lead to spoilers. But despite the quickly moving timelines and abundance of events taking place the book is an enjoyable creative read, that will engage all your senses and allow you to drift into a world filled with dreadful creatures and divine beings.

 






Author Kat de Falla was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where she learned to roller skate, ride a banana seat bike, and love Shakespeare thanks to her high school English teacher.

Four years at the UW-Madison wasn't enough, so she returned to her beloved college town for her Doctor of Pharmacy and is happily employed as a retail pharmacist where she fills prescriptions and chats with her patients.

She is married to her soulmate, classical guitarist, Lee de Falla and raising four kids together
ala the Brady Bunch.

She began her first full length novel on a blustery, winter night when an old man told her to watch her back, they were all around us and she was never to see him again.
She never did.

That night, she began to pen, THE SEER'S LOVER about a pharmacist who becomes a seer of those who walk among us...angels and demons which is available from
The Wild Rose Press.
