Dark Rising- Book Review

Monica McGurk has done it again!  In Dark Rising: Book Two of the Archangel Prophecies is sure to keep you up at night. A good book is hard to come by-and a good series? Ever rarer.  Last year I was able to dive right into Dark Hope: Book One of the Archangel Prophecies.  It kindly reminded me why I loved to read and that I needed to carve out some “me time” to ensure my sanity endured.


Dark Rising- Book Review

As a mother to two young souls it is all too easy to get lost in the To Do lists, the chaos that comes with two kids, albeit a lovely chaos, can be overwhelming.  Good books remind me that I do need to make myself a priority.  I love to read and the instant I find a book that sparks that love- I can’t put it down.  For those with young ones that don’t sleep in, sleep is a treat, a true treasure to cherish.  So please note that although I do love sleep.  More than once I’ve been caught up until 3AM clutching a book.  The only times I relent are when my arthritic hands can hold the book no more.


Dark Rising- Book Review

Dark Rising: Book Two of the Archangel Prophecies is a new young adult saga about the love between a human and an archangel.  Book Two starts off shortly after Dark Hope and you are transported through sub-sequences and race across Europe trying to save the world.  The ending was abrupt.  Just like the end to that blockbuster movie that you know is filming a sequel… you just need to know what happens next.  And thankfully Monica McGurk plans on publishing the final installment of Dark Before Dawn in 2016.  Thankfully.



Dark Rising- Book Review

I truly love when an Author uses their voice to support a cause.  Monica McGurk stands against human trafficking and has donated to organizations that fight human trafficking, especially the sexual trafficking of minors, from every sale of her books: Dark Hope & Dark Rising.

In her writing she makes it painfully obvious how widespread the issue of human trafficking is.  It’s everywhere.  The dirty, little truth in America and Europe.  The painful reality of a real issue.

Once again Monica McGurk added an Author Q & A at the end… something that I wish ALL authors would do.  Some of my biggest questions were answered and explained.

My biggest question?

Q: Do you already know how Hope and Michael’s story will end?
