Blog Tour & Giveaway: Shattered Grace [Fallen from Grace 01] by K. Anne Raines!

Publication date: 28th February 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Grace grows up knowing she’s different, but she always attributed it to a mother who didn’t want her, a father who abandoned her, and a curse that sets her apart. Despite those struggles, her grandfather remained her rock and confidant. Her life irrevocably shatters the day her grandfather dies.

The day of his funeral sets off a chain of events, making Grace question everything she’s ever known to be true, and as a result, who she can truly trust. She inherits his house, part of his money, his Guardian and something that ties them together.

Just before Grace’s 18th birthday, she is thrust into a world she couldn’t fathom existed and does everything she can to thwart the destiny suddenly forced upon her. She’s been chosen for greatness, but at what cost? With eyes now open, she must choose to either be Chosen, or watch those around her suffer the consequences.

Torn between the man who’s come to protect her and the one sent to destroy her, she teeters on the edge of decision, trying to come to grips with who she is, what she wants and what all of that means for her, those she loves and the rest of mankind.

This book was amazing! I wasn't really sure if I was going to enjoy it as much as I did when I first started reading! It sort of reminded me of the Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick but only because Shattered Grace had Nephilims in it! Apart from that it was completely different and in a world of its own! The plot started quite slow in my opinion but then it started to speed up and it had action in it and it was full of romance! I really enjoyed that the author added real life situations in this book as well as having paranormal situations as well! The characters were amazing! Grace was the main character and I loved how well she took the news when she found out about her life and how important she was! I connected with her the whole way through this book and I really enjoyed the way acted and her determination! I also loved that Shattered Grace was written mostly in Grace's point of view but we also got to go into Quentin's head as some scenes were written in his point of view! Quentin was one of the love interests of Grace and I loved him! He was determined to protect Grace and he was there for her right from the beginning! Darius was the other love interest of Grace and he was the one that Grace seemed to form more of a love relationship with bit in this love triangle I was Team Quentin! There was also at sone points of this book a love square between Grace, Quentin, Darius and Zeke but I liked that Zeke sort of started to think of Grace as just a friend as that as all I could see them being! I am really looking forward to seeing where the next book in this series goes and I love the cover! Big thank you to K. Anne Raines for an ARC of Shattered Grace and to Amber for having me on the Blog Tour!
