Dark Hope Book One of the Archangel Prophecies

As always, I was excited to get a new book in the mail. This one is called Dark Hope, it is book one of the Archangel Prophecies series.  Dark Hope is written by Monica McGurk you can click HERE to read a little about her.  Dark Hope is classified as a young adult fiction book you can find it in both kindle and paperback on amazon.  The kindle edition sells for $7.99 and the paperback sells for $14.07.  You can click HERE to find it.   A portion of proceeds from this book will be donated to partner organizations that fight Human Trafficking.  The Author sites ECPAT and Street Grace as partner Organizations.

Summery of the back of the Book:
"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 her.  Hope's life is filled with questions.  What's behind the angry looks she gets from Lucas, leader of a gang of students? Who's responsible for sending Hope strange valentines 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?  In an epic narrative that takes readers from the back streets of Atlanta to the height of Vegas penthouses and beyond, Hark Hope introduces The Archangel Prophecies, a saga of extraordinary love, vast mythological scope, and great moral urgency."

I read a lot, and when I say a lot I mean at least 2 books a week not including all the children's books I read to the girls.  I am not real picky with what I read as long as it has the ability to pull me in a little and get me wondering whats next.  I will admit I have have read a lot of the young adult fiction books that have come out lately I even read the vampire one.  So reading a young adult fiction book was not new to me, and most are actually good.  I started this book thinking it was going to take me a week to read it, but I quickly got sucked into the story.  It was a classic battle between good and evil and I had to know who would win.   I read the hole thing in about a day and half and it left me wondering what would happen in the next book.   The Majority of the book kept my interest and even left me wondering what was going to happen in the next book.  I was always trying to figure out who Michael and Lucas really were.  Who Hope would end up with, would they find the missing girl, would Hope be saved or lost to evil.  The book touches on some issues like Human trafficking and child abduction both serious issues around the world.  There is some scripture in the book but I cant say how accurate or inaccurate it is, since Dark Hope is a fiction writing, I didn't take the time to look each passage up and check it.  The end of the book has questions and topics for discussion, and even an author Q&A section to help you get a little more involved in the book and series. A great bonus for book club members.  Over all I felt it was a good read and I can wait to see what else Monica McGurk comes up with.
