ARC Review: Dark Paradise by Angie Sandro

Dark Paradise by Angie Sandro is the start of a new New Adult paranormal series. Wow, this was a great book, Angie Sandro pulled me into the world of Mala and Landry and left me wanting more. This book is compared to Beautiful Creatures, well I never read the book only saw the movie. What I would compare this book to are the early Southern Vampire books without all the vampires and shifters screwing up her life. It's all about the feel of the book I had the same kind of excitement reading this as I did when reading the first Southern Vampire (aka Sookie Stackhouse) book.

In the Bayous of Louisiana Malaise LaCoix is the descendent of a slave and a long line of hoodoo witches. She doesn't believe in any of it growing up being make fun of for being a witch, and the bastard daughter of a prostitute how deals in hoodoo spells on the side. That all changes when she finds the dead body of the preacher's daughter, Lainey, floating on her land. Now she has a dead girl trying to get her help to find her murderer and she is suffering from strange events, nightmares and visions that are signs that she's about to come to her powers soon and that means her Mother's death is going to happen soon.

Landry Prince was the star quarterback and the boy all the girls lust after, and he's had some of them but there is one girl he is scared to approach, the he thought would be the one to reject him the beautiful Mala. He has it all in his life good family life and a great older sister but she has changed so much in the last year, He was absolutely devastated by news that she was murdered and it opened something in him he never expected, the spirit world as Lainey is haunting him also. Mala and Landry work together to try and find out the mystery of his sister's death while fighting the disapproval of family and friends as their friendship blossoms into something more.

In the end it does end it not a real cliffhanger just a mini cliff. I am highly anticipating Dark Sacrifice, the second book in the series and find out what's in store next with Landry and Mala.
