Men like Sebastian want only one thing, and Natalie has vowed not to give it to him. Yes, he's gorgeous, intelligent and heroic, but he's also a constant reminder that she isn't good enough for him. Can she outrun a club owner who wants her dead when she's weighed down by the failures of her past?
His whole life, Sebastian has viewed women one way - as marvelous distractions. But when Natalie enters his life, he's forced to see the world - and women - in a new light. Teaming with Jett Cestone, they enter a world of sex traffickers to rescue young innocents. But only Natalie can rescue him and give him the one thing his heart needs.
Fantasy, faith, and intense romance: what more could a reader want? Ms. Pratola’s Descended books take the question, what if the “sons of God” mentioned in Genesis 6, who had children with “daughters of men” began a line of special offspring with unique powers. Intriguing premise and not your usual Christian fiction. Fantasy is not my usual choice, either, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
If you haven’t read the first book of the series, Jetti, I recommend it, as Jett’s background is helpful to know in order to understand this one. But either way, Sebastian is a great read. I didn’t want to put it down, as the action kept my heart pounding.
The tentative relationship between Natalie and Sebastian drew me in, too. Both are damaged, and their quest to overcome their pasts leads straight to the Savior they both desperately need.
If you enjoy Christian fiction with a touch of fantasy, I highly recommend Sebastian¸ and the whole Descended series. It earns five stars for stellar writing and fast-paced, heart-pounding action and romance.
