Book Review - Boreal and John Grey, Season 1 by Chrystalla Thoma

Book Review of:
Boreal and John Grey Season 1
Chrystalla Thoma

My overall star rating - 5

About the book:
Read the complete First Season of the series Boreal and John Grey, books 1-5 (The Encounter, The Gate, The Dragon, The Dream and The Truth) at a special price with an Author's Note at the end.

Centuries ago, they nearly conquered humankind. But their Gate to our world closed, leaving them out. Now the elves have found a way back.

Ella Benson, agent of the Paranormal Bureau, fights the Shades when they cross into our world, keeping everyone safe. But increasingly dangerous creatures are slipping into her city, her work partner has just gone missing, and a mysterious – and, quite frankly, hot — guy saves her life. His name is Finn and, as it turns out, he’s a natural when it comes to fighting the Shades.
When the Gates between the worlds start opening and the elves make a comeback, Ella needs a new, temporary partner. Enlisting the mysterious Finn is a no-brainer, until she realizes he is guarding dangerous secrets of his own.
Together with Finn, and the fate of the world on her shoulders, what’s Ella to do but grab her weapons and figure it all out, one way or another.

My 5 point review:
-1- This is an excellent book.  A can't put down book, full of action and adventure, one that you just must read; with a love story thrown in to boot.  It kept me fascinated, from beginning to end.  One of those books that you find hard to put down until you’ve read the last page.  I loved it.  It's an excellent book.  A great read.  And definitely well worth your money.

-2- What if creatures from another world started breaking through the barrier between our world and theirs?  And what if they weren't friendly?  And what if we were figuring out what we were doing as we went along?  Searching in old tomes and in fairy tales and legends for clues as to how to fight them?  And what if you're the girl to stop them?  It has fairy tale creatures in it, with just a shade of creepy thrown in for good measure.  The creatures are trying to come from their world to take over ours, and the battle is on.  That's some of what you have in this series. 

-3- Some love scenes in some books are like a porn movie, and some like a bad porn movie.  But the author of this book knows how to write a love scene, for some love scenes are like beautiful poetry, as is the case with this book.

-4- Her writing is sharp, concise, gripping; painting your mind with images she has painted in the words of her book.  A great book is a thrill to read, and this is one of those great books.

-5- Ella and Finn are one of those timelessly great fictional couples.  You’ll fall in love with them and their story.  I can’t wait till the next books are out.
