The Immortal Sin Trilogy
- Book 2: Immortal Descent  

How far would you fall for answers? Amanda has accepted her new life and the darkness has become more appealing than ever before because of Mitch. But when her world is thrown into a drastic downward spiral, she is left questioning everything. Amanda embarks on a nightmarish adventure and her faith is put to the ultimate test as she journeys onward to discover the true meaning behind family, love and her destiny between good and evil.  

When I received the email about this blog tour I was very excited, as I always am when I get a blog tour email that involves a YA novel or series. Don't get me wrong, I give every email a fair glance, but YA are the ones that I usually jump on pretty quickly. Fantasy is not a genre that I read too often, so I was excited to give this one a shot. It sounded like it would be pretty interesting, and that was all of the convincing that I needed to sign up. Since the blog tour is to promote the book series (or the books that are currently out of it), I received ebook copies of both of the books, which is great because I am usually dying to read the second book in the series once I have read and finished the first one. 

I am going to be honest, when I start a series, usually the first book in the series becomes and remains my favorite, even as I read the books that follow it. Now, I definitely read all of the other books in the series, and usually enjoy them very much, there is just something about that first book. I guess a lot of it has to do with the fact that book one introduces us to almost everything we need to know, and I really love to read the world building that often comes along with series. This series was no different, either. Milillo did a wonderful job with this series, and I was hooked by the beginning of book one. It would be impossible not to like Amanda, at least in my opinion. She seems to be a really well-rounded character at the beginning. Nice girl, great grades, and a couple of really good, solid friendships. She is a character that you know you will cheer for, and then everything in her life suddenly changes in an instant. 

I do believe that this is the first book(s) that I have read that has had to do with demons and angels, and I was very intrigued by the whole thing. While sometimes with fantasy I think "Yeah right, even if it is fiction, this is completely unbelievable." I never felt that way with the Immortal Sin series, though. Milillo did a great job of explaining things in a way that made them seem like they could be completely possible, even if it is all fiction. I think that is a wonderful sign of fantasy. I do not want to give too much away, as I believe that this is a series that everyone should read, and I think that everyone should get to experience all of the awesome details and events of these books personally, but I STRONGLY recommend that everyone pick up these books. There is fantasy, love, suspense, plenty of action and darkness, understanding and loving family, and so much more. I honestly cannot wait to read the third and final book in the series. 

Rating: 5.0/5.0
