There is a world that exists just beyond the fabric of our own. When Carmen is dragged there against her will, her hopelessness seems to disappear, replaced by a determination to survive. The Keeper of Crows is charged with guarding Carmen, but is safety a possibility in a world so desolate? Can love blossom when danger lies in wait?

Can it give her the strength she needs?

When the lines between life and death, reality and dream become blurred, who will save the souls trapped in the spaces between Heaven and Hell? Who will save Carmen's only love, The Keeper of Crows?


My Review:
5 out of 5 Stars!
I don't even know where to begin about how wonderful and original this book is! I honestly began the book (likely by the author's design) thinking that this book was going to be about a spoiled rich girl that continues to make a series of mistakes, and no matter what magical occurrences keep happening to her, she will be continue to make selfish decisions that end up getting everyone else around her in serious danger. It did start out that way, but it certainly didn't last long. And when she did make poor decisions, they only hurt her, which was her goal, since no matter how rich she was, she hated herself and her life.

After one near death experience, I found myself wondering how she was going to find a way to get herself back into another near death experience, since this seemed to be her new life goal, with the bonus of hurting her father's image, who she despised. However, in an interesting twist of fate, her next near death experience came much faster than expected, not by her design, and as we find out later.

In this case, she is literally dragged into an entire different reality, and her need to escape life instantly becomes a need to save her life. This new place had too much bizarre going on, she had no idea if she was alive or dead, or who she could trust.

I don't want to give too much away, but this 'other world' she becomes a part of is truly incredible in the way the author has created it. She does an amazing job describing an immense amount of detail regarding both the place and beings that lived there, and it was so easy to imagine it and everything that was going on there. I was so incredibly sucked into the story, which the author made easy, because I didn't have to keep re-reading to understand what things were or what things looked like. It was a very impressive world with layers into other worlds that seamlessly made sense.

Then, there was the Keeper of Crows. The more you read about him, the more you realize there are more and more layers to him, and it makes so much sense why they are so drawn to each other. In what seems like a hopeless situation, just being together makes it seem brighter, makes them see some good, and makes them want to do whatever it takes to make things better -- together.

Of course, there were constant twists and turns that you don't see coming, which makes it nearly impossible to put the book down. Right when you're sure you know how everything is going to play out, especially because a character (I don't want to give away) tells her close to the end HOW it will play out, you're left freaking out a little that it may not happen that way after all. The world, the people in it, and even your own mind has a tendency to throw curve balls. I'm now dying to read the next book to find out what, if anything, these curve balls have changed. Is it a trick, or is it real? If it's a trick, is all of it a trick or just some of it?

Like I said, there are many layers to this book, and it's like nothing I've read before. I love every bit about it, and will immediately read the next one when it's here!

Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:
Destiny is unrelenting. It will come for you, and when it does there is no escaping it; something Casey knows firsthand. On the run from the dean and his ever loyal Imperial Guardians; Casey, Cedric, and Falon must put their trust in the most unlikely of allies. Their search for help will lead them across the country, into enemy territories and mystical kingdoms alike.

With a prophecy over her head, it is ultimately up to Casey to bring her world back to order. But for that to happen, the corrupted officials who govern her world must be stopped. New friends and old will align to bring back the peace, by force if necessary. And first on their list? The dean.

Casey hasn’t forgotten the torment she suffered at his hand, and the nightmares are far from over. Can she eradicate this threat and help save her world? Or will she fall to the pressure of her fate?


E.M. Rinaldi lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her boyfriend, Milz, and their slightly psychotic pup, Boone. By day she is a Registered Radiologic Technologist taking pictures of mangled bones and by night she writes about all the bizarre situations her characters get themselves into while she was away. She is a Second Degree Blackbelt and can’t write a story without at least one fight scene in it.
When she’s not writing, or trapped at work, E.M. likes to read (obsessively), clear her DVR, and have all night Buffy marathons with her friends, complete with cookies and cinnamon rolls. 
Her love for writing stems from an early age where she would create stories on an old computer program and force anyone within grabbing distance to read them. Not much has changed; be warned: stay out of grabbing distance. 
Evading the Dark is her debut novel and the first of The Cross Chronicles.
