Shattered Grace

Review 4/5 Stars!!

Seventeen-year-old Grace grows up knowing she’s different, but she always attributed it to a mother who didn’t want her, a father who abandoned her, and a curse that sets her apart. Despite those struggles, her remained her rock and confidant. Her life shatters irrevocably after he suddenly dies.

The day of his funeral sets off a chain of events, making Grace question everything she’s ever known to be true, and as a result, who she can truly trust. She inherits his house, part of his money, his Guardian and something that ties them together.

Just before Grace’s 18th birthday, she is thrust into a world she couldn’t fathom existed, and does everything she can to thwart the destiny suddenly forced upon her. She’s been chosen for greatness, but at what cost? With eyes now open, she must choose to either be Chosen, or watch those around her suffer the consequences.

Torn between the man who’s come to protect her and the one sent to destroy her, she teeters on the edge of decision trying to come to grips with who she is, what she wants, and what all of that means for her, those she loves, and the rest of mankind.

I really enjoyed this book. It has a different take on Angels than other paranormal books that I have read which is always a plus, not that this book is in any way all about angels, just kind of given from the beautiful cover of the book :). The book kept my interest right from the start and I can't wait to see what will happen in the next book.

I loved all the characters in Shattered Grace. Grace is a mature 17 year old that has to go through a lot of changes after her grandfather dies and she handles everything that comes at her the best she can. Grace goes through a lot and also takes care of others along the way and that made me like Grace that much more.

I really enjoyed K Anne Raines writing and I can't wait to read more books from her.
