Book Description: 

Being the daughter of Lucifer keeps seventeen year old Dawn Belial busy. For almost her entire lifetime, she has been trying to think of a way to free her Archangel mother, Michaela, whom her father has held captive for centuries. She's also attending high school - balancing trigonometry, history, and recruiting souls for her father along with her wicked half-sister, Venus.

There has been no time for love until she meets mysterious Gabriel, a British exchange student. As they fall in love against their will, she discovers a startling secret about him, and a shocking connection to her mother that changes everything.

My Thoughts : 

Foreword :  I was given my review copy in PDF format and I read on my phone kindle app... Which means I was constantly having to resize the text and scroll.. argh.  So I had a bit harder time getting into the story than I feel I would have if I had read it in another format.  With that said, let's get on with the show...

The Morning start is about Dawn, daughter of Lucifer (fallen angel, devil, collector of evil souls building an army to take over Heaven) and Michaela (Archangel who has been trapped for centuries by Lucifer because of his "love" for her).  Dawn has been trying for years to figure out how to free her mother but has to have her father's permission to even get to where she's held captive.   Added to that she has her succubus step-mom Lilth and half-sister Venus to keep her on her toes.  Until the day she meets Gabriel and everything changes.  Falling in love, she will discover a secret about him as well as about herself. 

I enjoyed the plot line and the flow of words. Tania certainly has a gift for keeping things moving yet still describing in such detail that you can truly imagine the places she describes.  I absolutely loved Dawn's family .  Despite the fact that 3/4 of them are evil, it felt like a true blended family - the dynamics were all there and perfect!  The Morning Star was a well written novel that leaves you wanting more at the end. I finished it in under a day!  I honestly turned the page (okay, clicked the button but you get the point) and kept trying until I had to face the fact that it was over and now I anxiously await the sequel..  sigh. 

4 stars - loved it !  

About the Author : 

Author of debut young adult novel, The Morning Star. Currently working on the sequel, Equinox, as well as a chick-lit, rom-com, slightly sleazy and funny story with a twist, Catching Frogs. And, because I'm loco in the roco, I've got about 12 more on the back burner. When I'm not writing I can be found kayaking, hiking, ninja-training, traveling, and taking a ferry over to the San Juan Islands to search for the elusive creature known as the "Orca." I also am constantly adding ridiculous wants, needs, must-see's and do's to my ever expanding bucket book. 

I covet a delicious malbec with a rare steak and make a killer salsa.
