Book 71 of 2015: Persecution by Elizabeth Montgomery


They were exiled from their clan. Made to leave the only home they ever knew. They knew the curse would kill them if they didn’t leave. Isaac erased her memories to give her a better life. SHE HAS TO COME BACK. SHE IS THE CHOSEN ONE. Only Cecily can defeat the hunters. Isaac swore his heart to protect her. Julian swore his life to protect her. But in the end will it be Isaac and Julian that needs saving?

I received a free copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

Persecution is a paranormal romance for the New Adult audience. It centers on the life of a young woman and her importance to a race of people. The race are hybrids of witches and vampires. They are powerful, fast, but don’t feed on blood often. They are known as the Dyphillum.

The first thing I want to point out with this book is its length. It is eighty-six pages long. With the writing style, it feels shorter than that. I was gripped in the prologue, but the rest of the book needed help.

I personally feel that the book is unfinished. I wanted more detail. I wanted to experience what was going on. The last chapter did that that, but I wanted the rest of the book to reflect that. The two different point of views felt a bit confusing too. I wanted to understand Cecily better, but I couldn’t get into her with every other chapter being Isaac. Even though he had the same situation, he was easier to understand in motives.

I don’t like giving books low ratings, but because it was hard for me to connect with the main character and the story felt unfinished for me, the book is a two out of five (in Goodreads ratings). I would love to see the book rewritten with more detail. I wouldn’t say no to the sequel either. I did preview a sample of it and it looks like there is a bit more detail than this book.
