Sheep Book Review: Revelation by Randi Cooley Wilson

Revelation (The Revelation Series Book 1)
By: Randi Cooley Wilson 
314 Pages
Mature Young Adult/New Adult Paranormal Romance.

Eve Collins starts her freshman year at college blissfully unaware that one revelation will challenge everything she’s believed to be true about her family, life, and future, and right in the midst of it all is Asher St. Michael. Mysterious and aloof, Asher is appointed to protect Eve at all costs. Bound by his oath of loyalty to mankind, loving her is forbidden. Dark and enigmatic, Gage Gallagher may be even more dangerous to Eve than the demonic army that hunts her. Caught in the middle of a centuries old war, Eve must choose sides knowing that the wrong choice will cost more than just her life. Can Asher and Eve fulfill their destinies or will their love destroy everything? Revelation is a journey of self-discovery, love, and sacrifice. 

This one is most definitely a young adult book, I didn't feel it even crossed into the new adult realm at all. The romance is sparse and PG rated, younger girls can read this one for sure. 

I'm not a hugh fan of soft PNR and it showed while reading this one. There are some elements I really did like, but overall the world was too soft and not nearly dark enough to keep me really wanting to read what happened next. 

Some overuse of the same phrasing of words got a tad annoying, the main character Eve is supposed to be heavily guarded by her gargoyle buddies. As someone who holds a lot of power in a good vs evil war, you would think this is a key element to the story. But the author takes adventure and throws the bad guys in her face every time one of the guards turns around. 

Things get worse when an archangel comes down to tell Eve she can't hook up with her sexy guard man Asher. He's a bit whiny at times and a little too emo for me, but he sounds like he's got a great body. So...points for that and we can look over all the rest! Yes, that was shallow to say. However, all of this "He can't be with you, he's here to only protect you" was very predictable. 

The only real twist happens at the very end, and I can't even tell you about it without spoiling the whole thing! Overall, I recommend this one to folks who like YA or the younger reading crowd
