The Last Hybrid: Bloodline of Angels by Lee Wilson

After five solid days of reading this book, I wanted to write this review right away. However, it left me in such a trance, so affected by its content, such was its power, that I had to wait a few days. The Last Hybrid starts out with Hannah going back to college at age 26. She felt compelled to do so after suffering a car accident in addition to the fact that her job at a fast food joint was taking her nowhere. Since the first time she left school was due to drinking and partying, she was resolute to not let anything get in her way to pursuing a degree. Unfortunately for her studies, her resolve lasted about a day because she met a boy, Daniel, who swept her off her feet. Little did she know what she was getting into. You see, Daniel is not your ordinary human, and Hannah learned this over the months. Daniel was involved with a powerful group called the Council (the good guys), and had to contend with it as well as dark forces.
Lee Wilson, and an accomplished actor has an impeccable understanding of how to build an effective storyline and take the reader into the stratosphere on a dizzying pursuit of adventure. In fact, this book reads like a movie, but no movie I have ever seen, because it has way too much action and romance to last just two hours. When you read this book, you will be reading it for days, but not days of drudgery, days of exhilaration! What I really like about this book is that when Daniel is in trouble, I feel like I'm him — not like I'm reading about what is happening to him. When I am reading about Hannah's ordeals, it's like I am in her shoes. There are not many authors who can pull this off, but Lee Wilson does it with panache.
This is an excellent book for anyone interested in angels, vampires, the supernatural and adventure in general. Don't worry about getting tangled up in a complex plot that may have a few dead ends in it. This book has nothing of that. It is a series of layers of events that are piled up on a solid foundation so that you, as the reader, are guaranteed a straightforward, but not dull, novel that will keep you engaged while you are reading it and asking yourself questions (such as: What will people do to continue their love for someone? and What will people do to get more power?) for days or weeks or months to come. Indeed, you might say that you will have plenty to sink your teeth (fangs) into.

Available at Amazon.
