Protected (Ariya Adams Trilogy #1) by Anna Applegate
5 out of 5 stars
Protected is an Ariya Adams Trilogy written by Anna Applegate is the first book I have read by this author. I love reading about vampires and werewolves all paranormal books actually. So when I read the blurb I grabbed it and I wasn’t disappointed the characters where well written with their quirky ways and easy banter. The plot was really different in a good way with few surprises thrown in. The way Ms. Applegate described the scenery was amazing.
Ariya Adams thinks she’s a normal college Senior she has no idea she’s descended from blood so powerful and rare that her life is infinitely more precious than any ordinary woman’s especially to James Rymer.
James knows she’s anything but a regular college student and enters her life and stirs up feelings she can’t explain. He becomes a part of her world almost overnight, but Ariya senses he’s hiding something, and she’s determined to figure out what it is.
When “normal” becomes a thing of the past and fantasy enters Ariya’s reality, she’s soon faced with dangerous revelations, the least of which is that everyone she loves has been keeping secrets from her. With a paranormal evil she’s only beginning to comprehend threatening her and her friends, Ariya will have to choose between duty and love. Through it all, she’ll learn to never underestimate the power of blood.
I highly recommend this story and can’t wait to read what happens in Awakened. I do have to warn you this story ends in a cliffhanger.
