Published: February 2013

Book Description

Thousands of years after the battle between the angels, when Lucifer was defeated by Michael in the Heavens, the war is still being fought on Earth by the humans who have their Power, the Angel’s Power. 

Allison Stevens is a 21 year old single mother who gets thrown into the middle of this battle when Damien, the Leader of the Rising, decides to hunt her down and kill her because he fears she is the descendant prophesied to save the world. 

David, a member of the Order, takes Allison under his wing in order to show her the ropes, and hopefully groom her into being the one they have been waiting for. The only problem is that they start to grow more attached than a teacher/student relationship should allow.

But that isn’t all. Damien wants to open the Seven Seals and bring about the apocalypse and it’s up to Allison to not only save herself and her family, but save the world, all while trying to keep her heart from breaking.

No problem… right?

POWER is the first book in a New Adult (Mature YA) Paranormal Romance Trilogy and is the debut novel for author Theresa M Jones

My Review

I have read a few books involving battles between Good and Evil lately but every one of them has their own unique twist. Power is a fabulous story where World War lll is just beginning. It may lead to the apocalypse and those with Power need to step up to help prevent Evil from taking over the world.

Allison is the main character in the book and she is an amazing person. I felt I was able to connect with her as we are both mothers and would do anything to protect our children. She is a sweet girl who tries to avoid confrontation but will stick up for herself when needed. She is very close with her mother, who is also her best friend, but she doesn’t appear to have many friends and the changes in her life were easy to deal with as she didn’t have anything else to keep her at home.

The majority of the book is from Allison’s POV, but we do get other POV’s along the way, some are the good guys and some bad guys too. I thought that these other views gave greater depth to the story and really filled in some gaps in the storyline.

Allison does have a bit of a love interest in the book and it was nice to see their relationship develop. They have one of those electric relationships and they don’t really know how to handle it. There are a number of factors involved that keeps the distance between them. I liked the way that they inherited their Power as not anyone can have it; it is linked to their bloodline.

Power didn’t have any actual fighting scenes as it is focused on developing Allison’s Power so that she can control her Power and maybe able to defend herself. Once you develop the Power there is no need for hand to hand combat as you can do almost anything with your power. It is a strong magic that Allison had no idea about.

I enjoyed the whole story as it was an easy read and the plot flowed effortlessly. The ending was great and left me wondering which direction the next book would take. I look forward to the next book as I have a lot of thoughts flowing through my head about this book and I wonder what will happen in the future…
