I signed up for Helen Boswell's blog tour because I adore her. Like fangirl screaming and waving hands in the air adore her (maybe not screaming...but hands in the air, yes). I consider Helen a friend. Now don't let that scare you away from reading my review of her book...see when I reviewed her book I just thought she was a cool biologist on Twitter who wore a superhero costume in her avi. It has been since then that I have come to know her as so much more and now call her a friend.
So I will now gush about why Helen is my amazeballs friend. She is one of the most genuine, caring, and helpful people I have ever virtually met. As an indie author there are things that you need to either learn how to do yourself or...pay someone else to do. One of these things is formatting...ugh...friggin formatting. Seriously, I cannot fully express how much I dislike formatting. So, during one extremely frustrating formatting session I tweeted something that probably said I was ready to throw my laptop out the window...blah, blah, something like that. Almost instantly she replies and tells me to email my cursed document to her. She friggin fixed my evil document and is the reason I am typing this blog post on my still 'in one piece' ancient Dell annnnnnnnnnnd paperback copies of my books exist.
This is who she is, an awesome person, an amazing friend and a kickass writer. Also, I would be remiss if I did not discuss my slight (read obsession) with a character she created. Now, before I introduce you all to him please let me be crystal clear in the fact that I have already called dibs. Yes, I understand I have a giant book nerd crush on a fictional character. Don't judge!
Here, ahem, is Mr. Jonathan Draper:
It's okay to drool as long as you remember I called dibs...
Dibs...for real...don't get any ideas.
To meet Mr. Draper you'll just have to read the book...

(my reviews are short I know, I hate spoilers...sorry!)
Loved the concept! Demons, I feel like I've read a lot of paranormal and haven't come across a demon character that wasn't just a mindless evil tool of havoc. This author has created this whole new world that neatly fits into the one we already live it. Let me just put this out there, I would not mind being able to see people's auras. How cool would that be? This was a hard book to put down, I would recommend to any of my friends who are into paranormal fiction and anyone into YA romance.
Again, I acknowledge my review is short...but, if reading long ass reviews is your thing by all means please go out to Amazon to check out the 30 reviews there...23 of them 5 star. You'll see mine, it's the short one ;)
