Anomaly: Check

Check, check, check, check…That’s all my life is. There’s nothing ordinary about me. I’m “special.” I know this because I’m reminded of it every stinking day. I can kick a Daemon’s ass with both hands tied behind my back. I can run up a mountain without breaking a sweat. Know what I can’t do? Get guys to notice me, or hang out with friends like normal people do. I can’t just be ordinary because I have an Arch Angel for a mentor who is always breathing down my neck, and a family of angelic Guides and Protectors who scrutinize every little thing I do. Just for a day I want a life where I’m no longer some anomaly, where I don’t have to feel like a lab rat. 

And then I met Emrys. Okay, so my mentor and family hate him, but probably for good reason. After-all, he is a Soul Trader, and they aren’t the most trust worthy beings. But, he is sooo hot with his green eyes, leather jacket and the sexiest tattoo you’ve ever seen running down his back. And-he doesn’t treat me like a project.

I’ve got myself in quite a little quandary here. Choosing between my responsibilities, and the Trader that holds my heart is something I didn’t sign up for. Torn between two different worlds, I must now decide who to trust and who to walk away from. What’s a girl to do? See what I mean? I am an anomaly. I am Jordyn.

I just happened across this book somehow.  I have read Tiffany King’s Saving Angels Series and loved it, so I thought I’d give this one a try.  This story incorporates the characters from the Saving Angels Series, with a new one added in, Jordyn.  Jordyn is an anomaly.  She is stronger than the Guardians and Protectors, but she doesn’t know why.  She is a 17 year old girl who has no recollection from her life before moving in with Krista and Mark.  She is constantly training, since she is a Daemon hunter.

She meets Emrys, a Soul Trader, and feels an instant connection with him.  But, according to the angels and Archangel Haniel, Emrys is not to be trusted.  Jordyn, being the rebellious teenager, sneaks out and meets Emrys on a few occasions.  She starts to fall for him.

I really did enjoy this book.  There was a bit of a twist on the end, which now means I have to wait until the next book in the series comes out!!!  I’m a bit older than Jordyn, which may be why I had some issues with her rebelliousness.  I understand she is 17 and wants to lead a normal life, but she’s not normal.  She constantly defies her guardians by lying and sneaking out.  But, that is what rebellious teenagers do I guess.

I enjoyed how Tiffany King kept the characters from the Saving Angels series.  The character development for Jordyn was good, but if you haven’t read the Saving Angels series, you won’t understand fully what is going on.  I recommend reading that series before starting this book.

Overall, I give this a 4.5 out of 5!
