Review: Evil by Tijan

You know that group of people in school that everyone fears? Popular. Beautiful. The in-crowd?

That was my family. Kind of.

We were above that group. We held court over everyone else. We were the best looking. We were the mysterious and elusive ones. Most of the girls wanted to (and did) date the guys, but they didn’t want to be one of us. They couldn’t be. They were our prey.

We were the feared.

But like every family, nothing is as it seems. That was my truth.

Kellan was in his own league. He was our leader and he was the one no one messed with. No one dared. He was ruthless, powerful, and no one could match him…

Except for me.

I was about to find out just how different I was from my family.

**Evil is a full-length paranormal romance stand-alone.

I have a confession to make. I have never read anything by Tijan. GASP in shock…I know. I’m not a big fan of YA stories, all that school aged angst. I like my angst to be adult, smutty and in the PNR realm. My book buddies have on more than one occasion have suggested (Shouted is more like it) that I really needed give Tijan a try. So I caved into the peer-pressure (How high school of me), picked up her latest release and sat down for a read.

Evil was a pleasant surprise! For starters, by the blurb I expected a paranormal read. Which I got however, the dangling carrot is what KIND of beings are we dealing with. And…I’m not going to say. Sorry folks, that is the allure of the story. The unknown element, the mystery, the evil. It certainly was not what I thought it was going to be. As a delved further into the story, I realized Evil was less about the what and more about the who. Shay, Kellan Giuseppa and Vespar. Are they evil by birth or they evil by thought and action? Very good question isn’t it?

Enough philosophy, back to the book. There’s quite a few jump outta no-where twists thorough the book. Some I thought were really great, others had more of a ‘WHATDA…? How? What? How?’ feel to them. Let me clarify how that is a good thing. Instead of being predictable, Tijan has put together a story here that while you are thinking one thing, she slips in a one/two punch that will take your head off and leave you reeling.

Shay and Kellan…oh wow! Giuseppa and Vespar…YIKES! Love, hate, betrayal, drama and holy moly I didn’t see that coming! In case you are wondering, yes I am deliberately being vague about everything. I think if the author wanted you to know fully what the book is about she would have spelled it out in her blurb. Just know this: Nothing is as it seems. Now go grab yourself a copy of Evil and prepare to be blown away.

I received this book as a gift from my book bestie and was told to read it NOW! The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and I concede to my friend she was right, I should have read Tijan sooner.
