Carly just lost the last week of her life trapped in Pandora, the space between universes. Most of it was spent navigating an illusion created by her only companion, Dolos, the god of trickery. Even so, the time Carly spent there changed her. She fell in love. She’s more fearless and more determined than ever to leave the darkest parts of her past behind. And she’s learned that, sometimes, family is the one you make for yourself, like the one she’s found at Gamma Lambda Phi.

But a lot can happen in one week, and Carly returns to a sorority in jeopardy. A curse has been placed on her sisters, and it’s up to her to break it. With the Gammas out of commission, Eric’s halfling army is plotting something big, and Carly and her sisters are the only ones who can stop them. To make matters worse, Dolos is working for the bad guys and up to his old tricks.

Time is running out, but the antidote for the curse is proving impossible to find. To save her sisters and stop Eric’s army, Carly has some tough choices to make. But will she choose duty and sisterhood, or the kind of passion that comes around only once in a lifetime?

It was great!

This is the 3rd book in S.L. Stacy’s Reborn series. In Reclaim, the main point of view is Carly. I like Carly, and I relate to her a lot (I have trouble swearing, etc, lol) but for some reason I still just feel more connected to Siobhan. Probably just because that’s who the series started out with so I *know* her a little better.

I also had a hard time with the way Carly reacted to some pretty traumatic situations, BUT she was probably just in shock and I know she had to keep moving to do important things.

I just love how all the Greek Gods are played out in this series. And I LOVE the different worlds. We get to see Carly travel to the Underworld and it was like I was there. I was nervous for her!

And I loved learning more about Dolos. I remembered him from Relapse but didn’t know too much about him as a Greek God. It was neat to see how he’s basically two different people.

S.L. Stacy is an extremely talented writer, and turning out to be one of my favorite urban fantasy authors!

Back in high school, Siobhan Elliot’s life was simple: Cheerleading, friends, and parties. But that all changed the night she and her friends investigated a mysterious light in the woods. There they found an injured man–an irresistible man with hypnotic blue eyes and magnificent black wings. A man Siobhan recognized. He was the handsome dark angel from her dreams. And with one touch of his hand, he left her with a special gift: a set of mythical wings that would change her life forever. Then he disappeared without a trace. Siobhan thought she would never see him again.

Now, six years later, her dark angel reappears –this time as a teaching assistant at her college. He calls himself Jasper. He challenges everything Siobhan thought she knew about herself and her world. And he’s come back for only one thing: her.

Or so he says. Siobhan is about to find out that nothing is what it seems in this strange, new world.

(Blurb from Goodreads.)



I love it when a book is surprisingly awesome.  The main character, Siobhan, is pretty kick ass.  As you read in the synopsis, a visitor to earth left her with a pair of wings.  Wings!  And despite the obvious challenges that must have presented, she moves forward with life and just takes it in stride.  Siobhan is part of a sorority in her college, and that was pretty cool to see, especially since I was never in one (I don’t think I even know anyone who was.)  So it was a neat insight into sorority living, plus I felt that made the book unique as well.

Jasper, the dark angel that gifted her with wings, annoyed me a little bit, but I think that was the author’s intention.  And I wish the front page showed how to pronounce Siobhan’s name.  (It is in the book, but not right at the beginning.)  You know when you read to yourself in your head; I think I just mumbled through her name every time.

I’ve never read anything similar to this story, and that’s a good thing.  It gets tiring when you read stories that feel the same, over and over and over again.  Greek gods, myths, college living, romance; it’s all there.  So my hats off to you Ms. Stacy; you made a fan out of me and I can’t wait to read the next one.



My Rating:  4 out of 5 stars
