The Descendant Trilogy #1
Rating: 3.5 stars
Synopsis from Goodreads: Thousands of years after the battle between the angels, when Lucifer was defeated by Michael in the Heavens, the war is still being fought on Earth by the humans who have their Power, the Angel’s Power. 

Allison Stevens is a 21 year old single mother who gets thrown into the middle of this battle when Damien, the Leader of the Rising, decides to hunt her down and kill her because he fears she is the descendant prophesied to save the world. 

David, a member of the Order, takes Allison under his wing in order to show her the ropes, and hopefully groom her into being the one they have been waiting for. The only problem is that they start to grow more attached than a teacher/student relationship should allow.

But that isn’t all. Damien wants to open the Seven Seals and bring about the apocalypse and it’s up to Allison to not only save herself and her family, but save the world, all while trying to keep her heart from breaking.

No problem… right?

In Power we meet Allison, a single mom, who discovers she has powers and can bring the war between the angels to an end. But there are a lot of angels out there who want her killed. 

I've read quite some angel books by now and there has been a point where I couldn't stand them any longer. But I keep being intrigued by a synopsis including angels. The same with power! When Theresa e-mailed me for being part of this blog tour the synopsis caught my attention immediately. And the best thing is the story was really nice. I had to get into it, but after that I read it without stopping!

What intrigued me in the story was that you didn't know who Allison could trust. I had to keep on reading to find out what would happen. Allison lived a pretty normal life and all of the sudden she has to leave her mother behind and she can only take her daughter after some discussion. Everything changes for her. What made the story even more tense were the different POV's. 

I liked the story and Allison is a great MC. The only thing I really had to get used to was that she has a kid. This almost never happens in YA and that took some getting used to. If you like paranormal than you should check this one out.
