 Seventeen year old Kris Young is on the run from a throng of superhuman golden-eyed freaks hell-bent on seeing her dead, and she doesn't know why. Good thing she has her guardian angel to protect her...sort of.

Kris is aided by Nathan, the mysterious man that ends up being anything but angelic when he rescues her for the fourth time in fourteen years. Even if the handsome hero illusion is shattered by his harsh treatment of her, he knows how to fight this strange enemy and is determined to keep her safe at all costs.

As the body count rises in their wake, Nathan introduces Kris to a world in which not everyone is human and the battle lines between good and evil are clearly drawn. Kris's piece in the puzzle is something neither is aware of and, as they uncover the truth, neither is prepared for what they find. Overcoming twists and revelations that shatter both of their lives, they discover that nothing is as it seems and nothing, least of all their hearts, are safe.

From debut author, Desni Dantone, Ignited is the first novel in a tale of first love, mystery and adventure that will introduce you to an exciting new world as Kris discovers how she fits in it.

  Ignited by Desni Dantone (Ignited Series #1)

Ignited (Ignited Series, #1)She’s had dreams of a handsome young man saving her, she even “knows” she has seen him in the flesh before, long ago, but nothing prepared seventeen year old Kris when the mysterious Nathan shows up in her life and this time he stays. Her lifelong hero has come to life, to her rescue, once again, but his demeanor is less than angelic.

A “normal” teen, Kris is more than shocked when the hot guy in school befriends her. Alec is all brightness and sunshine in a world that hasn’t always been all that kind to Kris. Does he have an agenda that belies his actions? Only time will tell when a quiet outing with Alec becomes a battleground of good versus evil as Nathan shows up and Kris becomes the prize.
Kris’ world implodes around her as she learns of a world of angelic beings who are part human and her part in this world is far greater than either she or Nathan know.

Ignited by Desni Dantone is the first in a series that proves to take young adult paranormal down a new path, devised by her own words. Kris is not a superhero, she is a girl, with a mouth that holds nothing back. What she does discover is there is more to her than she knew, but the learning curve will have deadly twists along the way. The dialogue between the dark Nathan and Kris runs between harsh and terse to warm and sometimes even funny. Nathan is not your normal hero. Sure he has power, strength and a long history behind him, but he is definitely holding his past close to the vest. Our golden boy, Mr. Warm and Fuzzy, Alec, is like a chameleon, or maybe a wolf in sheep’s clothing, or is he a sheep in wolf’s clothing with sheep clothing on top?

Ms. Dantone writes with a firm hand, weaving twists and tangle along the way, feeding out just enough information to set that hook of interest and make being able to NOT turn that next page impossible! I was a goner after page one. There is innocence, danger, revelations and loss in this Young Adult Tale that fuels the mind with a touch of reality and a dab of the “what if!”
