Today we are revealing the cover for Fruit of Misfortune and we're giving you guys a sneak peak with our spoiler free ARC review!
Fruit of Misfortune is an amazing continuation of a series that is just so new and different, that I encourage everyone to pick it up. In the second book, Isis is turning into what she was born to be (spoiler free, vague statement there), and she's bringing David along for the ride, though not completely willingly. She's at an age where she knows what love is, but isn't ready to say that any one thing is forever - and man can I relate! At 18, I was the same way - and it's so refreshing to read a book that doesn't center around a female character who falls in love and thinks it's forever and it's a beautiful fairy tale - because let's face it, while those stories are so sweet, and heart warming to read - they're not always realistic. (Okay, they're very rarely realistic.) Although the setting and back story for this series is paranormal in nature, the things that Isis faces in relation to her character growth and depth - are very easy to relate to.
David is as charming as ever. He's more patient than I've ever seen any man be in real life, but I like that about him. He's not pushy - but he speaks his mind. He gets mad, and he apologizes. He feels things on such an extreme level. It's very heartwarming to read about him and the struggles he faces with relating to Isis.
This book has a cliffhanger that makes you want to throw your book across the room, but I know it'll be worth it when we see the ending. Let's just say - I'm rooting for both Isis and David. If you're a fan of paranormal YA, then you must pick up this book!
Isis and her boyfriend, David, are on the brink of a horrible transformation and they are eager to stop it. Together, they set out on a quest to Greece to find Isis’ biological father—the only person that may be able to help them. Their journey comes to an abrupt stop before it even begins when Isis falls ill, and Eros, David’s best friend, arrives in Athens, unannounced and curious…with a plan of his own.
The hunt for her father leads Isis on the turbulent path of deceit, death, and demons as she anticipates the dawning of the beast that stirs inside her.
