Dark Hope: Book One of the Archangel Prophecies Review & Giveaway

Have you noticed that Young Adult books are very popular right now?  And I'm not talking about with just "young adults" -- it's really with everyone!  Let's think about this for a minute.  The Twilight series, The Hunger Games, The Fault in Our Stars....these are all classified as "young adult" books. I have read all of these and loved them each for different reasons.  So when I was offered the opportunity to actually REVIEW a young adult novel, I jumped at it!  

Monica McGurk is the author of Dark Hope: Book One of the Archangel Prophecies.  I have to admit. The title immediately got my attention, as did the cover of the book.  I couldn't wait to dive in! 


For years, Hope Carmichael, survivor of a shocking child abduction, has lived a sheltered existence under the protection of her fanatically religious father. Now, liberated by her mother, Hope prepares to start live over as a normal kind in an Atlanta, Georgia high school.
Normal, that is, until Hope meets Michael, a gorgeous emancipated teen with a mysterious past and a strong interest in her. Soon, Hope’s life is filled with questions. What’s behind the angry looks she gets from Lucas, leader of a gang of students? Who’s responsible for sending Hope strange valentines inscribed with Bible quotations? How does this related to the sinister business of human trafficking that operates on the periphery of Hope’s suburban world? And is Michael really a protector, or something more sinister – and why does he seem so familiar?
In an epic narrative that takes readers from the back streets of Altanta to the heights of Vegas penthouses and beyond, Dark Hope introduces The Archangel Prophecies, a saga of extraordinary love, vast mythological scope, and great moral urgency.
In college, I had to do a huge research project.  What college kid didn't, right?  My group decided to research a very disturbing topic.  Human trafficking.  Not just human trafficking, but children who were targeted as traffickers. I worked my butt off on this project, and really felt myself vested into the topic.  What we read, was awful.  It is really hard to imagine, and downright scary that such things actually exist in the world we live in.

Dark Hope tackles this topic head-on.  A huge part of this novel is about the dirty world of human trafficking. I found myself completely engaged in this book from start to finish.  I seriously could not put it down.  I even read in the car...something I normally do not do!

The book is a series, so when you finish it, it leaves you wanting more!  I will definitely be reading the next one.  I cannot wait until it is released!
