Book Review: Sebastian Falls by Celeste Holloway--4 stars

*I received a free ecopy of this book from the author through the YAholics Anonymous Book Group on Goodreads in exchange for an honest review* This book overall was great. At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. The beginning of the book left me with a lot of questions. I was really irritated with Meadows moodiness and freakouts. Casey's half-truths also frustrated me. If he was trying to help Meadow, why not be up front with her? Once Banter and Kaler were introduced into the story I was hooked. Meadow had this weird "love triangle" going on and I had to know who she'd chose. The characters were well written and the plot/storyline was easy to follow.I really liked where the story went at the ending. Sometimes "angels vs demons" novels can be quite predictable but not in this case...I didn't really know what was going to happen, until it happened! I'm not a religious person but liked the fact that they're were quotes from the Bible. It made the story feel much more believable. The ending left me wanting more and I look forward to a sequel. I would have given it more stars but there were a few editing mistakes (missing words/grammatical errors) and a few chapters that had HTML codes that I had to decipher the words through. Other than that it was an easy, entertaining read. I'd recommend it to someone who is looking for a good vs evil; angels vs demons type of book. Note: AFTER posting my review on Goodreads the author contacted me personally and was surprised to hear the Epub version had issues. She is working on getting it fixed.
