Stained (YA Paranormal Romance) (Stained Series)

Stained (YA Paranormal Romance) (Stained Series) - Ella James This book had a great start. Julia is a 17 year old girl who loses her foster parents in a fire on the very first page. A fire she should have died in as well...but didn't. While watching the flames erupt from her house, she sees what she assumes is the Angel of Death hovering above.....Not wanting to be returned to the system, Julia flees and takes shelter in an abandoned warehouse.Enter Cayne. Cayne is clearly not your average human. That may be because he is only half human, and half demon. Cayne rescues Julia from the warehouse, where she is being attacked by a strange winged demon.And so the chase begins. Julia and Cayne against the world....or Samzaya the demon. The story is fast paced but quickly became repetitive. One big game of hide and seek. It was definitely entertaining...the characters were likeable if not slightly juvenile. One thing I will say, the book was poorly edited with may spelling and formatting errors. And the ending....BRUTAL. Talk about a cliff hanger!! I turned the page expected another chapter and NOPE! NOTHING! THE END!! UGH......Overall, the book was good enough for me to want to continue reading the series. Based on review of the 2 following books the story only gets better.
