Book Review: Supernova by C.L. Parker




Somewhere between the first twinkling of stars in the night sky and the break of dawn, two souls from two unique worlds collide, creating an everlasting supernova. Kerrigan Cruz and Dominic Grayson are among the chosen few who have the gift - or the curse - of being able to walk between two worlds. It is on the cusp of where these beings meet that everything changes, and life as they know it is turned upside down. Fantasy becomes reality, and what shouldn’t be is. Forced by destiny, their chance encounter is breathed to life by the one thing that can make even the most impossible of impossibilities a reality - something so complex in nature, yet as simple as a flicker of thought to exercise. Most normal people go about their everyday lives never even suspecting its existence. But it is out there…it is the Light. The universe has granted the power of the Light to a chosen bloodline charged with the responsibility of protecting our right to choose our destiny.  But in the shadows, darkness wreaks havoc in the lives of the unsuspecting.  Yes, another world does exist, and it holds secrets beyond what the most vivid imagination can comprehend.

Supernova is a fun mix of genres; paranormal, romance, action, adventure, and comedy!  I love a book and an author that doesn't take itself too seriously.  The storyline flows rather well, it's not an incredibly unique plot, but it does have a couple twists to keep the reader guessing.

I think the strongest part of this novel is the characters.  C.L. Parker does a wonderful job in fleshing them out and making them feel real.  Some of my favorite scenes were when all the friends were just goofing around.    Kerrigan and Dominic's relationship feels real and powerful, and things get very emotional when they both are willing to give their life for the other.

It was obvious by the ending of the book that C.L. Parker plans to write a sequel.  I'll definitely be reading it, I'd love to visit all of these characters again!

  3. Hey, Maria!

    First of all, I have to tell you that I was extremely nervous about your review from having read your previous reviews on the blog. You're a straigh-shooter who doesn't blow fluff just to appease the author. Having said that, let me tell you how seriously stoked I was by your review of my debut novel, Supernova!!! I've had a big, fat Cheshire Cat grin on my face all day long!

    Thanks for taking your time to read my labor of love and giving your opinion!
