Title: Praefatio (Praefatio #1)
Publication date: May 21, 2013
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.
Author: Georgia McBride
Seventeen-year-old Grace Ann Miller is no ordinary runaway...
After having been missing for weeks, Grace is found on the estate of international rock star Gavin Vault, half-dressed and yelling for help. Over the course of twenty-four hours Grace holds an entire police force captive with incredulous tales of angels, demons, and war; intent on saving Gavin from lockup and her family from worry over her safety.
Authorities believe that Grace is ill, suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, the victim of assault and a severely fractured mind. Undeterred, Grace reveals the secret existence of dark angels on earth, an ancient prophecy and a wretched curse steeped in Biblical myth. Grace’s claims set into motion an ages-old war, resulting in blood, death and the loss of everything that matters. But are these the delusions of an immensely sick girl, or could Grace’s story actually be true?
Praefatio is Grace’s account of weeks on the run, falling in love and losing everything but her faith. When it’s sister against brother, light versus darkness, corrupt police officers, eager doctors and accusing journalists, against one girl with nothing but her word as proof: who do you believe?
ABOUT GEORGIA MCBRIDE:
Georgia loves a good story. Whether it’s writing her own, or publishing someone else’s, story is at the heart of everything Georgia does. Founder of Month9Books, YALITCHAT.ORG and the weekly #yalitchat on Twitter, Georgia spends most of her days writing, editing, or talking about books. That is, of course, when she is not blasting really loud music or reading. She lives in North Carolina with four dogs, a frog, a parrot, 2 kids, parents and a husband. PRAEFATIO is her first novel.
Praefatio is the beginning of what seems to be a wonderful series of books. This is a story that tests your ideals of what is "Good" vs. what is "Evil." This story will keep you guessing and send your mind through a maze of uncertainty. We follow Grace, a 17 year old 1/2 human 1/2 angel, through her triumphs, confusion, fails, feelings of helplessness, and consuming love, as she tells her story during a police interview.
This book, for me, was definitely a story that I had to "pay attention" to. There is alot going on in the story. You will most certainly have to turn off the TV and give your full attention to this alluring story. Trust me, you will want to. Praefatio is different than many books I have read in the past few months. You are reading the story as Grace tells it. You feel what she is feeling and understand the utter confusion she goes through as she learns about who she is and what is really going on.
The book is well written. However, the transitions between time lines in the book are a little rough. I found myself having to re-read a few pages to make sure my mind was switching from past to present, from dream self to physical self. This being said, this story is original and wonderful.
There is sooooo much this book has to offer. Love, deceit, sabotage, mystery, and much more. The author does an amazing job making the reader feel the feelings that Grace is feeling. I literally wanted to grab a flower and start pulling petals, "he loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not." The relationship between Gavin and Grace is one that had me angry, sad, happy, ecstatic, and in love. I cannot wait for the next book.... I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!!!
I will leave you with this...... This book is not something you pick up, read, and forget about. You will be engrossed with this story, and you will be sent on an unforgettable emotional ride. So... when this book comes out, GO get it and ENJOY it!!!
