Publisher's Summary

Maya saw her first demon when she was seven. She learned to hide what she saw, ignore the paranormal beings around her and build an ordinary life. But she had to tell her secrets somehow, so she began drawing, creating her own world, her own characters.
Twenty years after that first demon entered her life, her normal existence is shattered when she's faced with two of her comic book characters come to life. Living in our world for years, each has his own agenda.
Benjamin Black, sexy thief with a cause, wants to get back to his own world. The world Maya thought she created. Only now he says she's his reason to stay in this one.
Adam Richards, once a cop, now a ruthless crime lord, wants to be immortal and he'll do anything, including hurting Maya's loved ones, to get what he wants.
The problem is, the men are inextricably linked through Maya's drawings. Ridding the world of Adam means Benjamin disappears from Maya's life forever....

This book was just ok.

I DIDNT REALLY CARE FOR THIS BOOK BECAUSE I FOUND THE MAIN CHARACTOR TO BE A BIT ANNOYING WITH HER NEED TO KEEP HERE DRAWINGS. SOME OF THE CHAPTERS WERE LONG AND BORING AND I DIDNT LIKE HOW THE REALTIONSHIP BETWEEN THE MAIN CHARACTOR AND HER LOVE INTEREST EVOLVED. What I did like about the book is THE NARRATOR WAS AMAZING LIKE ALWAYS,THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ADAM AND BEN. AND THE ENDING. IM NOT SURE IF I WOULD LISTEN TO THIS BOOK AGAIN BUT OVER ALL IT WAS OK. I WOULD GIVE IT A 3.2 OUT OF A 5.

AN ORIGINAL COMIC BOOK STORY....... WITH ROMANCE

This was a totally different 'off the wall' type of listen but once you get your head round the who what's and why's and the originality of the plot then it becomes one that you think at the end "huh well that was an unexpected and quite enjoyable listen".

I liked the characters (there were lots of them) and there was plenty of action however it's quite complicated with the EverVerse, NeoVerse, the Fade etc etc and there's romance but not very much between the sheets action. I think you'd just have to relax, take your brain out of gear and just let the storyline carry you along as I'm sure there's holes in the plot and it wouldn't stand up to too much scrutiny.

Worth a credit? Well, if there was a continuation then I would probably wait for it to be on sale before I bought it however I did sorta enjoy this so I don't regret the spent credit however I'm afraid it's one that not everyone is going to like.
