Leticia (Leticia 1)


Title: Leticia
Author: Lindsay Anne Kendal
Rating: 4/5

Goodreads Summary:
Leticia has a dark secret, and somebody somewhere knows what it is. After being tormented and brutally attacked, it becomes obvious they want her dead. A mysterious group come to her aid. They want to fight by her side and help her win the war someone has declared on her. Together, they present a force to be reckoned with. Love, loss and longing put strains on the alliance. Not only must they fight their enemies, but their own fears and desires. Leticia must also face a harsh reality. If she wants a happy future, she must first confront her past.

My Review:
 I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. I thought this was a different take on werewolves and other supernaturals and I liked it a cool story if survival, love and loyalty.
 Leticia was a great character she had found ways to survive over the years and even after being dealt a crushing blow of betrayal she manages to find an odd way to survive and then deal with the aftermath. She discovered who she was and who she wanted to be and even after everything she wants to believe there is a good in everyone. Sometimes I wanted her to let her guard down and trust Nancy and Tristan cause I did right away, but I understood her hesitation. 
 Jackson oh Jackson be still my beating heart, the handsome brooding man ready to lay down his life for his family and Leticia. There were moments when I thought he was being a bit childish, I know he was the way he was fir a reason but after everything he had seen from Leticia I couldn't understand why he would continue to act as he did, didn't stop me from rooting for him and thinking he was a cutie.  At some points I found his dialog a bit cheesy and I laughed (in a good way) if I was meant to swoon I did not but I did not hate it.
The last half had me on the edge of my seat I thought I had all the answers and then the curve ball that I did not see coming. The ending was a huge WTF moment for me, that cliffhanger had me reeling. I found this series to have lots of the things I enjoy action, friendship and mystery and I would like to continue on and find out what happens next.
About the Author:
I have lived in Droylsden, Manchester, all my life. I live with my parents, my younger sister, Cheryl and her little girl Faith.
I never knew what I wanted to do with my life until I began writing. This is my dream. I get most of my inspiration from music, I’ll sit there listening to it and suddenly I’m no longer in the room. My stories play like videos in my mind, then I go and write them down.
I’m a very dark person, I love anything spooky, supernatural, or unexplainable, and so that’s the genre I want to write in for the rest of my life.
I love watching scary films, although I find it very hard to find one these days that actually frighten me.
I also love getting creative with graphics. I've designed over twenty book covers so far. I create promo art and even book trailers.
I have had a love of photography from being a child. I have literally thousands of photographs which I have taken over the years. Now, I have a professional DSLR camera and I'm looking to do photography as well as my graphics as a sideline project.
