Purgatory Reign ARC review

Purgatory ReignPurgatory Reign by L.M. Preston
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book synopsis.

Peter Saint’s life stinks. But things are about to get much worst. First, his parents are murdered in front of him. Then another victim dies in his arms. Visions plague Peter with warnings that something wants him for a sinister cause. It desires the one thing that Peter refuses to give—his blood. Peter carries within him the one gift or curse that could unlock a secret to destroy the human race.

On the run with Angel, a scruffy kid, Peter starts to unravel the mystery. It’s the one treasure the heavens sought to hide from the world. Unfortunately, when Peter finds the answer that he hopes will save the girl he loves, he opens the door to a great evil that happens to be salivating to meet him.

My review.

When I agreed to read this book I knew nothing about it. I literally gave the synopsis a quick peek but I didn't really take it in. Can I just say that this has to be my most favourite way to read books, I seem to find the best books this way.

Preston's world building is fantastic and it draws you in from the first page, I seriously struggled to put this book down and when I had to put it down I struggled to keep my mind off it. Once this book starts up the action doesn't stop until the very end.

Peter is understandably confused when his guardian Pastor Finn sends him on the run after Hanna's death, he has no idea who he is running from or where he is running to. Peter believes that anyone who gets too close to him will also die, but he doesn't understand why. He just tries to keep people away from him. Until he meets Angel. While searching for the answers to his questions Peter makes a few friends, friends who will save his life, give him purpose and stop him from feeling alone in the world. And unlike in plenty of other books it isn't an insta-friendship. These friendships take building, take earning of trust and is believable.

The book built towards this big climax which seemed to be over really quickly, almost too quickly really. So I re-read it. Only to find that I had in actual fact skimmed some of it to find out what happened next as it was so gripping.

Put this on your TBR list because you will not be disappointed, this book has it all: Secret societies, demons, romance, friendship, danger, blood and sacrifice. You will not be disappointed.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Thanks for reading.
