Paranormal Pumpkin Patch Day Twelve w/ Giveaway - Kelley Grealis

"Allison, you are in no position to be asking the questions." His eyes traced the shape of my jail cell and then he smirked, making the point that he was the one in control of the situation. "Don't you want out of here so that you can find your husband?" 
(Jal speaking to Allison while she's held captive in the jail cell on Rattlesnake Island.) - The Search, book two by Kelley Grealis

The goddess in the form of Kelley Grealis is our Halloween Pumpkin Patch feature author today as we reach day twelve. Not only is Kelley a superb author, but she's a damn fine woman too. For regulars on our Facebook page, you'll always see her getting involved and supporting author authors too. For a woman with such a wonderful talent, I'm humbled by her generosity and awesomeness. 

Reviewer: Justine
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Fairies
‘The Descendant’ by Kelley Grealis is not your every day vamp book. But what it is, is easily one of the best written books, I have read in a while.

Kelley Grealis’ flow and weaving of the back-story into the current time was very effectively created and developed. ‘The Descendant’ is most definitely a serious read. Be prepared and get yourselves ready for that. There’s absolutely no YA vampire fluff here.

Kelley Grealis successfully had me crying before I made it to chapter four, and pissed by chapter nine as I started to figure things out. This really was a rollercoaster of a book that struck a nerve on so many amazing levels. As for the ending - you know I am a stickler for an ending - Kelley Grealis did me proud! She successfully gave me an ending that left me feeling fulfilled with a clear conclusion, while leaving a crack of an opening for more. Bravo! 4.5 fairies!
Synopsis  
Mortal death or eternal damnation? If those were your choices, which would you choose?

Allison Carmichael is frustrated with the doctors who can’t diagnose her seemingly common ailments. Her frustrations are further compounded by her inability to discover her life’s calling, a purpose she desperately desires yet which has eluded her for thirty years.

A car wreck throws Allison into a life she doesn’t recognize filled with vampires, centuries-old secrets, betrayal, and vengeful enemies she never knew existed.

When Allison discovers the source of her ailments and the truth about her biblical lineage, she wishes she hadn’t searched so hard for the answers she thought she wanted.

Faced with an impossible decision – sacrifice her mortal life or damn her soul for eternity – which will Allison choose?

And can she decide before the choice is made for her?
