Anomaly: Check

Check, check, check, check...That's all my life is. There's nothing ordinary about me. I'm "special." I know this because I'm reminded of it every stinking day. I can kick a Daemon's ass with both hands tied behind my back. I can run up a mountain without breaking a sweat. Know what I can't do? Get guys to notice me, or hang out with friends like normal people do. I can't just be ordinary because I have an Arch Angel for a mentor who is always breathing down my neck, and a family of angelic Guides and Protectors who scrutinize every little thing I do. Just for a day I want a life where I'm no longer some anomaly, where I don't have to feel like a lab rat.

And then I met Emrys. Okay, so my mentor and family hate him, but probably for good reason. After-all, he is a Soul Trader, and they aren't the most trust worthy beings. But, he is sooo hot with his green eyes, leather jacket and the sexiest tattoo you've ever seen running down his back. And-he doesn't treat me like a project.

I've got myself in quite a little quandary here. Choosing between my responsibilities and the Trader that holds my heart is something I didn't sign up for. Torn between two different worlds, I must now decide who to trust and who to walk away from. What's a girl to do? See what I mean? I am an anomaly. I am Jordyn.

My Thoughts:


4 stars - A fresh take on the world of daemons that will have you swooning over Emrys!

What can I say, this is a Tiffany King book.  I always love her books.  But this is the first time I've read anything paranormal from her so this was a new journey for me.  What I found was a fresh take on the world of Deamons that had me swooning over Emrys!

Emrys. Still so mysterious, I'm totally in love with this boy.  I want to know more about him.  But what I do know is that he has PERFECT timing and wow can this boy kiss!  He has feeling for Jordyn and they seem pretty strong.  The attraction started immediately and the feeling came over some time.  I loved the trips to the top of the Empire State Building (Cover!). Sometimes the time they spent together was quiet or we didn't hear all the conversation.  I missed that.  I would have loved to see this book be a little longer and had some of it.  I suspect it was done on purpose so we didn't learn too much about Emrys.  Oh but I really want to know EVERYTHING about him.

Jordyn is a interesting sort.  I like her okay.  She a bit too perfect in the fighting Daemons side of things.  I guess I understand why with what we found out about her at the end but she has to have a weakness, right.  Maybe it will be Emrys.  A girl can hope, right?  I totally and completely LOVE her snark.  The girl can put snark out there with the best of them.  She kinda reminded me of Alex from the Covenant series in that regard.  I sorta feel sorry for Jordyn, too.  She's been lied to and kept in the dark a lot.  I'd be totally pissed if someone who claimed to care about did that.  I'm really anxious for book two in this series.  NEED to know what she does about it.

The pages flew by and I finished this one pretty quickly.  Had to force myself to stop reading several times (getting up early for work was the only reason).  Could have read it in a day if I'd had the luxury to do so. 

If you're into the YA/NA paranormal reads, then this one should be on your short list to read.


  1. This sounds really great!! Jordyn sounds like a character I would love. And Emrys is so mysterious. Love me a mysterious boy!! Awesome review chick!!

  2. I didn't know you'd only read her contemp books! Her Saving Angels series was some of the first indie stuff I read so I loved getting to see those characters again mixed with the new. And Emrys...oh my.

  3. Emrys sounds hot. I'm glad you liked this, Valerie. Nice review!

  4. I love Tiffany's books too! I have this one on my TBR list, but I did read Tiffany first series, which was a paranormal! I enjoyed it so much! Thanks for the great review Valerie!

  5. I have been hearing a lot about this book on the blogs that I follow but haven't had a chance to grab it for myself. But if Jordyn is anything like Alex - sign me up! I love the snarky confident female MC.

    Thank you for sharing this review, I'm going to have to add this one to my TBR.

  6. I've never heard of ths series before! And it sounds really good! Great review!
