Purgatory Reign by LM Preston - Review & Giveaway

Something evil this way comes...sadly for it, Peter Saints awaits.

Peter Saint's life stinks. But things are about to get much worst. First, his parents are murdered in front of him. Then another victim dies in his arms. Visions plague Peter with warnings that something wants him for a sinister cause. It desires the one thing that Peter refuses to give—his blood. Peter carries within him the one gift or curse that could unlock a secret to destroy the human race. On the run with Angel, a scruffy kid, Peter starts to unravel the mystery. It's the one treasure the heavens sought to hide from the world. Unfortunately, when Peter finds the answer that he hopes will save the girl he loves, he opens the door to a great evil that happens to be salivating to meet him.

My Thoughts:

I loved the concept of this book!  At times it reminded me of an Indiana Jones movie.  I liked Peter and Angel.  I was a little frustrated with the whole insta-love thing.  Of course this isn't the first book guilty of that.  At times it felt like Peter was trying too hard.  Like he was trying too hard to be the messed up, angry orphan.  That didn't keep me from rooting for him the whole story through.  Angel was a conundrum.  She spoke Spanish, had a Hispanic name but identified herself as white.   I could see why she was drawn to Peter.  I thought she balanced him out nicely.  Then there was Kyle.  I never did warm up to him.  He came off as a colossal jerk then all of a sudden he was chock-full of info. that Peter needed at just the right time.
The pure evil of Gavin and his minions gave me chills.  Seriously, he was CREEP-TASTIC!  
The action in this book is really good.  I was biting my nails in several parts.
The ending was the best part of the ride.  My heart was pounding!  It left things open for more books too.
If you like good action pick this one up.  If you're a bit squeamish you might not like this one.  Contains mild language, moderate violence.
