Book Review: The Second Sign by Elizabeth Arroyo
The Second Sign by Elizabeth Arroyo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Bred to believe in the war between angels and demons, Gabby has come to the conclusion that love is responsible for war, jealousy, and all the other deadly sins she can think of. So when she’s exiled to the middle of nowhere for getting kicked out of her fifth school for fighting, she doesn't expect to meet Jake. Much less fall in love. But Jake is quickly drawn to the eerie beauty of her violet eyes while Gabby is unsettled by their undeniable connection.
When a demon guardian comes to collect her soul, she refuses to give it up. She’s not a demon. She can’t be. Her father and twin brother are angels. The demon gives Gabby twenty-four hours to decide her allegiance, and then starts killing her short list of friends, leaving a message behind: She is the Second Sign.
As Gabby and Jake begin to unravel the mystery behind the Second Sign, she learns Jake may be the key to saving her soul. But it means a sacrifice has to be made that will change their lives forever.
***I received a free copy of this book in exchange of my honest review.
The Second Sign is a dark and mysterious paranormal book. I loved loved the dark and bloody details, it makes the story creepier and effective..I'm kind of used to reading the dark parts in other horror/mystery books but not actually feeling it..in The Second Sign, I can't help but imagine them vividly.
I was edgy while reading this, I think I'm as paranoid as Gabby..I'm kind of suspicious to almost every characters in the story even to Max, Gabby's brother..and at times I'm even scared to continue reading because a lot of creepy and strange things keeps on happening or appearing.
This book is about Angels and Demons...and other creepy creatures lol, it's intriguing and confusing at times...I have lots of whats and whys.. that I think and hopefully will be answered in the next book. I was devastated with what happens towards the end, the decision Gabby made is hard but she was given no choice and it broke my heart, but with what happens comes a "gift" and I'm excited on how that gift will play part on the next book.
I enjoyed reading The Second Sign and I'm excited for the second book, hopefully..it will be darker than the first.
