REVIEW BY BRANDY! SHATTERED INTO BEAUTIFUL BY MEL BALLEW @MelBallew
Her Magick is destined but true love forbidden.
After beautiful Sylver Kyllienne Brady meets death at the hands of her boyfriend, Roland Parks, she transcends into Summerland. There, she reunites with her mother and finds her soul mate, Zander. Pulled back to the earthly plane, she must embark on a journey of discovery. She uncovers a truth. She is the descendent of a long lineage of powerful Witches. She must learn to control her power, protect the family’s Amulet and Book of Shadows. Sylver has no idea what awaits her. And, this is only part of her discovery.
Lives unravel as secrets are discovered and mysteries unfold.
Everything changes when she meets Zander Emmett –a vampire. Zander is gorgeous, exotic, sexy and unbelievably wealthy. He is also the one person a witch, such as Sylver, must avoid. Their love is forbidden but their souls draw them together like a magnet. Their bodies ignite, passion soars and their souls are left discovering, not only each other, but their destiny. His life holds secrets and enticing mysteries of his own that propel the parallels of their worlds to climaxing heights.
Will their colliding worlds separate them? Will Sylver embrace her destiny? Will realizing what is expected of her and falling soul-fully in love with Zander - the vampire she is forbidden to love just leave her breathless?
Or, will she forever be Shattered Into Beautiful?
I am going to start off with telling you that I was given a copy of this for review. That being said, I don't know where to begin. I am Sylver. For all intents and purposes, I am her. I understand her pain and I understand what drives her. The brutality she suffered was mine as well. I am Sylver.
I understood Sylver's link to Zander. The power that draws you into eyes that mesmerize you into forgetting your pain and accepting the destiny stretching out in front of you. The depth of their connection spans time and space. It is a bond that cannot be broken or be denied. Forbidden is not relevant.
Betrayal is a guarantee when happiness and family is involved. It seems to be the thing that keeps the balance for all of us. I actually had to stop reading to email Mel. I had to let her know how deep this book moved me. I know everyone sees each book differently and I respect that but this book touched me in a way I wasn't expecting.
I have faced death in ways that can't be measured. I have fought my own demons and still had them come back for more. I am Sylver. Thank you, Mel. You are showing us that just because evil comes into your life and takes your final breath, doesn't mean it is the end. You can be reborn.
