Smashwords book reviews by Denyel Andrews

  • Yesterday's Daughter on Aug. 08, 2012

    Yesterday's Daughter is the first book in what could be a very promising series! It starts off with the main character, Grace Stone, working in a morgue. Grace is a loner by choice. She grew up in foster homes, never knowing her parents or her history. This makes her skittish around others. Her beauty often attracts attention from everyone, but it is unwanted attention. Grace prefers the night shift and keeps to herself. She also likes to drink blood over other food. Then, one day, a mysterious and handsome stranger, Malachi, appears. Grace Stone finds out that Malachi is the key to her past, present and future. Initially, Yesterday's Daughter, was a slow read for me. At the beginning, there were a lot of characters introduced and much description of places and people. The author definitely has a strong sense of using language that helps you visualize scenes and characters however, it was almost overkill in the beginning. I would rather read more about Grace Stone's past, growing up in foster homes and how she became the woman she is now. When Grace meets Malachi and learns the true nature of herself, it became a lot more interesting. I enjoyed when Grace AKA Sapphira learns about Malachi being her life mate and all of her powers. I think these two characters will have a lot of interesting adventures in coming books. I look forward to reading more! BTW: To anyone who has read the book...what do you think the meaning of the title is??
