Review: Divine Fall by Kathryn Knight

After tragedy tears Jamie Brandt’s life apart, her only goal is to finish high school so she can leave her small hometown behind. In the meantime, riding her horse is her main source of solace, until a mysterious stable hand shows up at the barn. There’s something not quite right about the handsome new employee, and the more Jamie sees of him, the more determined she becomes to figure out what he’s hiding.
Dothan Reed came to historic Huntsville, Maryland, for one reason—revenge. But his plan can’t move forward until he finds the missing piece he needs to enhance his powers. As the only surviving Nephilim, Dothan is not only weaker than full-blooded angels; his forbidden lineage makes him an outcast in both worlds. When he discovers Jamie is the key to locating an ancient weapon, he’s forced to interact with a vulnerable human girl—a task that becomes more appealing with each encounter.
Jamie soon learns Dothan isn’t the only one with a dark secret. Each new revelation further threatens her safety, and Dothan’s betrayal shatters her heart. Forgiving him seems impossible, but the thought of turning her back on him is equally painful.
As their connection deepens, Dothan will have to make his own difficult choice: continue on his path of vengeance, or protect the girl he loves. And when Dothan’s actions thrust Jamie into an unforeseen danger, he must seek the help of his enemy…or risk losing her forever.
Divine Fall reminded me of Twilight but in a more realistic manner. The protagonist, Jamie, has lost her mom to cancer, had her dad desert the family when she was born, and fiercely picks at her cuticles when nervous. Sadly, all fairly common occurrences that happen every day. The hot young man that Jamie falls in love with is not so common though. I will give you a hint: He is NOT a vampire! I won't spoil the rest for you, lovely readers:)

Author Kathryn Knight has written a book that teenaged girls everywhere will love. Jamie has made some hard, but wise, decisions as a teenager, which suddenly makes her a target for hateful pranks among her classmates. It's always sad to hear about teen bullying but luckily, this story has a positive message and Jamie is a strong young woman. The book reads so quickly with the action and romance that I was disappointed when I read the last page. There is no indication that Knight is planning to make this a series but I will keep my fingers crossed!
