Destined to Die by Claire Ashgrove

Destined to Die - Claire Ashgrove

I love when a "bad guy" falls in love.  They make such a great story as they learn to be better people and come to grips with their past.  Belen is not your traditional bad boy.  He really does do some bad things, and one of those bad things sets off the chain of events that leads to his eventual redemption.

Belen was a very interesting character.  He chooses to follow his darker side.  He thinks his lighter side is tainted by his mother's abandonment and he walks away from it.  When this decisions puts Faith in danger because of his actions, he begins to second guess everything he's done.  The catch, he really doesn't want to be a better person at first.  It was great!

Seeing Belen with Faith was like watching a different person than when he was with everyone else.  She really was his angel and showed him how powerful good could really be.  He is determined to walk away from it all, but when his love puts her life in danger, he needs to make the final decision of whether or not her life is worth his immortality.

There was quite a nice little twist in this story that only made it work even better.  Again, I loved the fact that it wasn't love or lust at first sight.  The characters had a history that the story really built on and it adds a layer of reality to a paranormal that makes it work so well.
