short review: harmony

14 July 2012

I'm not going to go through with a formal review on this one. The author, Sonya Bria, kindly offered me a signed copy to review and I thought: "Wow, Celtic folklore, that's gotta be good" and lately, independent/self published authors have been sending me requests to review their books. I know several good self-published authors, like Keary Taylor (and her amazing book, Eden), so I accepted and....well, here you go:

title: Harmony: A kingdom of souls book
author: Sonya Bria

Sophie is a high school senior with only two things on her mind, graduating from Jefferson High, and moving on, leaving the death of her mother firmly in the past. But the past is not done with Sophie, and she finds herself suddenly thrust into a tragic, Irish love story centuries old. Does she have the strength to accept her part, confront her own past, and rely on someone long forgotten?

Ian is a vampire with only one thing on his mind...Sophie. For years, he has watched over Sophie, and protected her from the darkness surrounding her mother's death. He would like nothing more than to forget the past, but his fate lies with Sophie and her destiny. Can he help Sophie confront her nightmares and not fall in love?

Sophie and Ian will discover that they also have a connection-something that could bind them together forever or rip them apart. What will they choose?

Only time will tell.

This reminds me of Shades of Atlantis and Twilight. There's little mythology, and more romance. I think it's basically just a load of flirting and a tad bit of Celtic/ancient backdrop. Needless it say, I didn't particularly enjoy it. The flirting is cute and fun, and I smiled while I imagined it all happening. It's a light, quick read.
