Walker Callaghan doesn’t know what happened to her. One minute she was living her teenage life in suburban Chicago…and the next minute, she was in a strange place and in a brand new school with absolutely no homework, no rules, and no consequences.

Walker Callaghan, 17, is dead.

She doesn’t go to heaven or hell. She lands at The Academy, a middle realm where teenagers have one thing in common: They were the morning announcement at their high schools because they died young.

These high school kids are now caught in a strange “in-between” zone where life hasn’t changed very much. In fact, this special teen limbo looks a lot like life in a quaint Michigan town complete with jocks, popular girls and cliques. “There are even cheerleaders in death,” Walker observes. It’s not a coincidence that the music teacher is a guy named Kurt who “used to have this band.” The drama teacher, Heath, is crush worthy because back in his life, he starred in some superhero movie.

Principal King explains the rules — there are none. Why? You can’t die twice.

There is no homework.
No tests.
No SATS.
You’re just there to learn because the human brain isn’t fully formed until you’re 24.

By the way, you can’t get hurt physically, so race your Harley off that hillside. But falling in love is the most dangerous thing you can do …because no one knows how long you’ll stay in this realm or what’s next.

“Losing someone you love would be like dying twice,” Walker says.

* * * * * *
Walker Callaghan has just arrived at the Academy after a tragic car accident. “Is this heaven or is this high school?” she asks.

She finds out her new life is a bit of both as she falls in love with tat-covered, bad boy Daniel Reid who is about to break the only sacred rule of this place. He’s looking for a portal to return back to the living realm.

He needs just one hour to retrieve his younger brother who strangely never arrived at The Academy. Bobby is an Earth Bound Spirit, stuck at a plane crash site that took both of their lives as their rich father piloted his private jet nose-first into a cornfield on Christmas Eve.

Walker loves Daniel and risks it all to go with him.

Have they learned enough to outsmart dangerous forces while transporting a young child with them? Can their love survive the fragmented evil parts of themselves that are now hunting them down as they try to find a way back to the middle?

At the Academy, you learn the lessons of an after-lifetime.

Syrina’s ✩✩✩✩✩ Review!

Mind Benders/Twists

d60157c07fcb5bf7cd0ec2eb8ea6a9e3[1]

Absolutely enthralling and utterly original, this unique and refreshing story boggles the mind and takes you into a different perspective as the author takes us into different realms between heaven and hell:  PURGATORY! 

C.L. Gaber has a way with words and her style of writing completely saturates your imagination, the story is full of emotions, you get the feels, you clearly become part of each character.  The plot keeps you entertained and it flows so well you are constantly turning the page to get to the next chapter.  Gaber’s  writing style was fresh, distinct, and original.

Heros and Heroines!

071762b0d77716baf2330cf9e7162b5b[1]  

Each character is written so detailed you become transfixed and racing to read more of Walker and Daniel’s journey in the afterlife or in between world as they try to come to terms with the future as they wish it. 

10563060_782508521856154_641377631572555605_n[1]

 Be prepared to for your mind to get twisted, nicked, knacked, boggled and totally mind phucked!  All in all it was a beautiful story and I was enchanted!

BOOK 1 COVER

a4a01-redsynopsis

Seraphina Orielle, an angel of divine fire and light, was also an oracle of foresight. Considered adolescent among her peers, she had yet to master her gift of precognition when her first vision came to pass; a captivating male whose destiny was intimately intertwined with her own. Yet he was not of angelic design. In fact, he was very far from it. Tragically, by the time Sera discovered this pivotal detail, he had already attained ownership of her heart.

But not her ability to flee…

A hundred years later and Cole Asteroth does whatever the hell he wants. When he’s not busy, that is, with ‘dirty deeds, done dirt cheap’ for his master. Ornery and sarcastic, he gets his kicks wreaking havoc in the human realm. Oh, and making very un-angelic women beg for his touch. Life is good…

Until fate finally catches up with him.

A few weak moments, one too many innocent visitations and the two are entangled all over again. But not as they had been before; things are much more complicated now. And Cole no longer possesses much in the way of faith and forgiveness.

As the estranged lovers struggle with what path to take, they quickly discover that destiny, too, is a reluctant second chance provider. As outside resistance and decadent captivity ensues, can their situation get any more exasperating?

Holed up in the underworld, Sera is given an up close and personal introduction to Cole’s demon half, their constant subjection to evil bringing out his darker side for some insatiable interactions. Both equally curious, his demon half sees her as a challenge to possess, while she regards him as merely a larger, lustier version of Cole to explore. Still, they need to find a more stable home, and the adventures they embark on to find such are nothing short of hilarious, though at the same time, downright dangerous.

Never did Seraphina foresee herself taking refuge in the underworld. Cole, however, should have. Sera’s kin would never let her go and this was the one place their holier-than-thou feet couldn’t tread. Unfortunately, residing in a realm of vile depravity only adds to his problems. Now he must keep

Sera safe from not only her kind, but his as well. Even Cole’s demon is more volatile from the subjection to incessant evil.

When the opportunity arises to solve their dilemma, he jumps at it with claws swinging. But it’s a dangerous mission – and Sera’s riding shotgun. As deadly adventures unfold and all hope seems lost, Cole is forced to search inside himself. With a soul that’s riddled with more questions than answers, can he find the lifeline they need?

5 Roses – Creativity – Unique Writing

These Authors take you on an eventful ride into the unknown and uncharted territories full of emotional twists and humorous turns.   The level of clarity they write is so enriched with distinct verbiage that you feel as if you’re really there in the moment, feeling every emotion,  seeing every character and traveling in every adventure.  The characters that are brought forth had me busting a gut, laughing out loud and cringing in fear.  The series was in a whole, outrageously suspenseful, thrilling and emotionally captivating.

5 – Hearts – Soul Mates – Lovers

Seraphina Orielle is an angel, literally.  Cole Astaroth is a Demon, literally.  When these two get together heaven and hell will collide and no prisoners will be spared.  They fight tooth and nail for their flourishing romance and their love builds to a crescendo.   Seraphina is running from her kin who are trying to keep her from this unholy union but nothing and no one will keep her apart from her Demon.  Cole is bound to his keeper yet trying to protect his Angel from all danger as he fights to hold on to this forbidden Love.

“My Prince, never will I leave you.  Into the bowels of hell I will follow you, as long as I am by your side.”  ~Serph

“Good, ’cause that’s exactly where we’re going.”  ~Cole

5 – Lips – Luscious Lust

Whoa, holy smoking hot hellish nights, to say these charms were erotic would be an understatement!  My toes curled, my thighs tingled, my mind was feverish and I had to go out and buy some chap stick from licking my lips the whole way through.  This Demon gives it to his Angel like hell is on fire and heaven is just a cloud away.  Cole and Seraphina know how to bump and grind, get down and dirty, hop on the scotch, and play knick, knack, and paddywack very very well.  LOL!  Hang on to your undies ladies, these two lead you into an inferno of naughty wicked deeds yet you can feel their emotional connection as well in each touch and kiss they share.

~Seraphina~

“You delightfully sneaky Demon.  You, Cole, are and always will be, my insatiable demon.”

Never had he taken her so hard.  Blessed be, it was a good hard.  A heavenly hard.  An I’ll-be-sore-for-days-and-will-give-thanks-for-every-tender-moment-of-it hard.

“The sound of your heart beating is a balm to my soul.”

~Cole~

“Sera..” he hissed as her teeth grazed his length.  “Ah Luv… your mouth is sinful.” 

“I’ve been caged for far too long, I need some me-time to pay with my nice little treat.”

“I love you, my angel.  I can’t wait to see forever with you.”

Yes these clever little charms were exactly what I need to extend my reading genre. 

I am a very happy camper right now for finding a new wickedly devilish demon BBF.  Cole was everything I needed in a badboy lover.  Seraphina was so divine in her naughty and nice sugar a spice eloquence.  I loved this book couple.  I loved the numerous characters these to Authors brought to our world.   You will have to pick this up for I cannot say anymore other than… OMG!! Caleb!!

I am hoping these Authors will read this and know that I am eagerly awaiting a story from a new Vampire Prince Caleb Alarik!
