Book Review: Ardeur

Today's review is on Ardeur by Danielle Gavan

Ardeur Lisle should have died the day she was born, but she did not. Through the help of an Angel she survived, only to live a life full pain, torture, and loneliness.

Everyone has imaginary friends as a child, but Ardeur's were not imaginary. Her friends were ghosts. It was because of this strange ability that she was ridiculed in school by just about everyone except Brody Callaghan, the boy with the beautiful dimples and the roguishly handsome smile.

Her parents, who only provided the basics, pulled her out of school eventually and began teaching her magic spells. They then sold her and never looked back. Those that purchased Ardeur summoned a demon, and that demon made himself at home within her.

Forced to commit horrible acts, Ardeur begins to plan her escape. Once she does, she is forced to live on the run until she is hit by an SUV. Fortunately, the boy who pledged that he would always protect her had finally found her. His love for her never faltering.

He's not the only one who's in love with Ardeur however. It seems that the very Angel that saved her life as an infant is in love with her also. But when she doesn't fall in love with him all hell breaks loose.

After nineteen years of sorrow, Ardeur is on the brink of happiness with a man who loves her and whom she loves back. Now if they can only survive the wrath of Death.

Ardeur was a very good book, though there were quite a bit of mistakes. The story line was quite unique and kept me engaged throughout it's pages. I am looking forward to the next installment so that I may see Ms. Gavan grow as a writer.

3 of 5 stars
