Indie Book Review - Peacemaker by Eva Gerald

Title: Peacemaker
Author: Eva Gerald
Series: Peacemaker Series
Released: January 11, 2014


Maya Voland doesn't want to spend her senior year in the cold, isolated town of Shine, Vermont. Reeling from the death of her father and the discovery that her life is a carefully constructed set of lies, Maya wants to escape to a place where she can be invisible.

The residents of Shine can’t let Maya leave. She’s too important to their cause. A manipulator by nature, Maya was born with an extraordinary ability to influence the emotions and actions of others. Shiners will go to great lengths to train her to use those gifts to further their agenda, before other, more sinister forces intercede.

Shea Knightly has been waiting most of his life for Maya to come back home to Shine. He, too, has powers of persuasion and he’s never encountered a girl who can say no to his stunning looks and overwhelming charm. He’ll pull out all the stops to bring Maya into the fold.

Now Maya must decide—is the intense attraction she feels for Shea reciprocated, or is he just feeding her more lies to draw her into the dangerous world of the Shiners? Even if there is something real between them, what price is she willing to pay to make his cause her own?

This is the first book in the Peacemaker Series.


A great Indie read!

I really enjoyed this story because the concept was new and different. Ms. Gerald created an interesting community of people (Shiners) who not only have strange powers to influence others, but who use those powers to change the world for the better. 

Maya is a headstrong girl who moves to the strange town of Shine after the death of her father. As she gets to know the residents of the town better, secrets are exposed and she soon finds herself immersed in a world of supernatural powers and unbelievable expectations. If she accepts the responsibilities that the Shiners demand of her, she will have very little choice in her future, including who she should love. Maya has to decide if she can trust the Shiners . . . and her heart.

The premise for this story was really clever and well thought out, seamlessly bringing several mysterious storylines together in the end. If you're looking for something completely different in paranormal romance, Peacemaker delivers. I'd say fans of Jessica Shirvington's The Violet Eden Chapters will really enjoy this book.
