Into a Million Pieces by Angela V. Cook

Genres: Paranormal, Suspense, Romance

Allison McKready is a succubus. So is her twin sister. But while Allison spends her summer break hiding in the library behind her Goth makeup, Jade fools around as often as she can. Allison can’t believe Jade would ignore their mother’s fatal example so recklessly, but concealing a cursed bloodline and its dangerous effects is far from Allison’s only problem. Mean girl Julie’s snob mob is determined to ruin her summer, and Aunt Sarah’s Bible thumping is getting louder. Only her new friend, Ren Fisher, offers safe haven from the chaos of her life.

When one of Jade’s risky dates leads to humiliation and sudden tragedy, Allison reels, and Ren catches her. But as her feelings for him grow, so does her fear that she’ll hurt him—or worse—in an unguarded moment. The choice is coming—love him or save him—but Allison might not live to make it. One way or another, the curse will have its due.

My thoughts

I had never heard of succubus before this book so I can't comment on her use of the succubus folk law but I found it really interesting the idea of being able to suck someone's soul out by kissing them. One of the great things about this book was that although the whole book was about a girl who is a succubus, it wasn't all about her being one. There was a great family theme running through the book as Allison is quite protective of her sister.

I found the book really hard to get into. It didn't have a bad start it was just I always thought of other things to do rather then read but once I got into it is was great. I never expected any of the plot twists. Can we all just take a second to think about how great Ren was. If my friend told me she was a succubus I would think so had gone mental but Ren was completely fine with it and not in like an odd way like a 'I completely trust you way'

In conclusion I'm giving this book a 3/5 stars because it ws really enjoyable and nt to deep though it took a bit of a long time to get into and sometimes it was hard to believe that was people's genuine reaction. Though I really enjoyed this book and think it would make quite a nice summer's read as it was mainly a romance book. Though there is a theme of suicide running through the book.
