On the day Taryn turns eighteen her life changes. A black-eyed man with a chilly aura accosts her and she’s abducted by a man who really isn’t a man, but a Manang; half-man, half-angel.

 She’s told she’s someone special; a Charmed, and the key to winning in a battle of worlds about to collide. Only problem is, she can be a weapon of good or a weapon of bad, depending on who gets to her first.

  ***Lauren, #NerdGirlSphinx’s Review***

There were so many things about this story that I just loved. First, I love the creative names that Lindy came up with for her characters, and how they really seemed to fit so well with their personalities. Taryn had my giggling at her witty retorts to Creed. They had such chemistry. Together they were just the right mix of sarcasm and irony.

 I really liked the idea of half-angel, half-human beings living on another planet. Lindy did a great job building her worlds and the characters. She did an even better job creating the personalities with the Charmed/humans, and how they contrasted to the Manangs (the angel-humans).

 The action started almost from the first page, which I loved. I really hate when I have to go through chapter upon chapter of character and world building, and that is one of my favorite things about this story (and series, actually); you learn about the many different characters as you go, making it easier to keep remember who each character is, and what part they play in the grand scheme of things. What was even better was the ending. It doesn’t go exactly how the reader may necessarily want it to go, but in a good way. Trust me, it all works out in the end… meaning book two, Charmed Again! I don’t know why, but I really like when a book does not go as planned, or at least as I thought it was planned. I love it when authors step outside the box and do not just go with what they think the readers want. That is the beauty of their art – it is theirs to do with as they wish!
