Dark Hope is the first book in the Archangel Prophecies Trilogy. If it was, I would have immediately bought it because I wanted more! I have read many of the popular Young Adult series and Dark Hope is definitely going to be a series to get involved in.
Now that my oldest is headed to middle school, I like to be current on the most popular new YA fiction and Dark Hope will definitely be one of them. Now that I am finished with Book One, I will be passing it on to her when she is a little older.
Main character, Hope Carmichael is in the ultimate fight of good and evil. While the other popular series deal in vampires, Dark Hope involves a human and an archangel while also touching on the very real and scary topic of human trafficking.
I must say I was intrigued by the way Monica McGurk uses biblical fiction to tell Hope’s story. Reading about the different types of angels was something that kept me captivated. Lots of symbolism that you know will be carried throughout the prophecies.
When reading about Hope’s mother and father, Don and Mona, it is easy to make judgments on first impressions. But, as you learn more, you begin to understand.
Here is the blurb to give you a sense of what Dark Hope is all about.
For years, Hope Carmichael, survivor of a shocking child abduction, has lived a sheltered existence under the protection of her fanatically religious father. Now, liberated by her mother, Hope prepares to start life over as a normal kid in an Atlanta, Georgia, high school.
Normal, that is, until Hope meets Michael, a gorgeous emancipated teen with a mysterious past and a strong interest in Hope. And soon, Hope’s life is filled with questions. What’s behind the angry looks Hope gets from Lucas, leader of a gang of students? Who’s responsible for sending Hope a strange valentine inscribed with Bible quotations? How does this relate to the sinister business of human trafficking that operates on the periphery of Hope’s suburban world? And is Michael really a protector, or something more sinister—and just why does he seem so familiar?
n an epic narrative that takes readers from the back streets of Atlanta to the height of Vegas penthouses and beyond, Dark Hope introduces readers to The Archangel Prophecies, a new young adult saga that blends the feeling of Twilight with a vast mythological scope and moral urgency, as well as to Hope Carmichael—a young woman instantly memorable for her endurance, heart, and determination—and Michael, Hope’s dangerous companion who’s fated either to save Hope—or to kill her.
I always love when brands give back. So, I was happy to see that a portion of proceeds from this book will be donated to organizations that fight human trafficking.
Since I know you will love this book as much as I did, I have one hard copy of Dark Hope: Book One of the Archangel Prophecies (ARV $13.99) to giveaway.
