Mortal Obligation (Dark Betrayal Trilogy #1)
by Nichole Chase
First things first: I have never ever had the character on the front cover of a book match exactly what my mind creates the person to look as I am reading... *Hats off* to Nichole Chase and her mother-in-law Lisa on the cover creation.. O.k.. so with that being said we all know it's what happened on the pages after the cover that we all want to know about.
Ree will face the darkest form of betrayal before the year is out. Seventeen year old Ree McKenna has three goals: get through high school, convince her crush she is more than his best friend’s little sister, and save money for college. Fate, though, has other plans for her. After the untimely death of her older brother, Ree is haunted by dreadful nightmares and terrifying visions. To make matters worse, Ree has started to suspect that something dangerous is stalking her from the shadows. A night full of frightening surprises leaves Ree with unsettling news. Gifted by the gods with unusual powers, she must devote herself to a battle that could very well lead to not only her death, but the demise of everyone she knows and loves. After all, Ree is the only mortal standing between the Earth and utter darkness. Set in Savannah, Ga, Mortal Obligation is the first book of The Dark Betrayal Trilogy.
With hundreds of new paranormal books being released every year it is really hard for an author to separate herself from the rest with an intriguing story the readers will remember. Nichole Chase has done just that with Mortal Obligation. You have the classic paranormal creatures, mythology, love triangles, great friendships, humor, action and this is all with Nichole adding in hints of whats to come in future books as well as a HUGE shocker that you will never see coming. I have already marked my calender for Mortal Defiance (RELEASE DATE:December 2011).
