Review of Kairos by K J Coakley. 3 Stars
What if the enticing man who has just seized your every sense enlightens you to realms beyond our dimension? Can that spark of love withstand a war to protect mankind? Kairos: An Enmortals Series Novel by K. J. Coakley is the spellbinding novel that reveals that the deepest love need not be confined to the trappings of one world.
The first in a series of adult paranormal romances, Kairos swirls in mankind, magic, and mythology as it chronicles the first blush of yearning between Sulwen Macgregor, a shy and sheltered college senior, and Logan Thatcher, a mesmerizing former playboy with arresting good looks, an offbeat sense of humor, and an ironclad moral code. When the two meet, Sulwen has no inkling that she soon will embark on an odyssey that not only exposes Logan as other than mortal, but uncovers astonishing aspects of her own being as well.
As Logan saves Sulwen from fast-approaching peril, the two must discover if their love is truly without bounds and strong enough to fend off adversaries far more craven than they ever could fathom. With wild imagination, otherworldly passion, and heart-pumping action, Kairos goes where no human being has dared, all in the name of love.
I was given this book to review from the author in return for an honest review. I adored the description and thought it would be my kind of book. I enjoyed the beginning that was quite good and promising. The book as a whole was so slow I found myself struggling to keep my concentration. The supernatural/ paranormal /fantasy didn’t really start until over 50% of the book and some explanations were over detailed some weren’t described at all making you wonder if you had missed something. Sulwen was a great character but instant love and rushing off to Scotland with a guy you just met who could be a serial killer was a bit of a put off to me, Logan just seemed unreal which I suppose was meant to be but just didn’t hit me as great. I have a crush on Duncan what can I say suave classy older guys just do it for me.
The book has oodles of promise and I think the writer will improve greatly the more she writes.
