Synopsis(Goodreads): "Mom always says the angels walk among us. She forgot to tell me that sometimes they're not all fluffy and nice."

Seventeen-year-old Caleb Wood has seen people he calls the walkers since he was a baby. It didn't take long for him to realize something…no one can see these strangers but him. They never stuck around or tried to touch him. And they never said a word. That was until one day on the first day of class in his senior year when an incredibly gorgeous girl strolls into his life…and things are never the same again.

Soon Caleb realizes he has stepped into the middle of a growing conflict between two ancient groups. And his ability to see the invisible ones, the half-breeds that want to modify the human race, just might be the only hope both he and the mysterious, but infuriating, Gia, have of making it out alive.

My Review: Dark Seraphine was so super good! It had everything that it needed and it was fabulous!

From the first page of this book I was sucked in. Stuff was happening and KaSonndra Leigh just grabbed us and threw us into the book. This book sounded like nothing I had ever heard before and it was crazy awesome and good. The plot was very fast paced and there was never a dull moment, because something crazy is always happening that usually comes out of no where.

Caleb was a great main character. He was caught between a rock and a hard place for most of the book and he has his flaws, but that's what makes him such a great character. I loved how he knew he had flaws and didn't think he was perfect and above everybody else. Gia was another great character. She was always popping up at unexpected times and she had me guessing what she was until the end. The side characters all fit together well too, and they all had a story and they weren't just shoved into the story because more characters were needed.

I loved the romance between Caleb and Gia. It wasn't one of those insta-love things that happen a lot in Young Adult books now, and I'm glad it was something different. There romance just happened slowly and it gradually got stronger and I was cheering for them in the end. More YA authors need to create romances like KaSonndra Leigh creates hers.

The writing style of this book was great. KaSonndra Leigh creates great characters and keeps the plot going smoothly. There were sometimes that I was a little confused with what was going on, but usually it was easy to tell. She also makes the dialogue sound like normal teenage conversation, which some authors don't do which was great. I could actually imagine kids at my school talking that way. 

Rating: 5/5 worms
Everything was great about this book. Definitely check it out!
