Her Sweetest Downfall by Rebecca Hamilton : Review

Her Sweetest Downfall (Forever Girl Journals, Ophelia)Her Sweetest Downfall by Rebecca Hamilton
Author: Rebecca Hamilton
Published: Immortal Ink publishing / July 2012
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Look for this at:  Amazon /goodreads

Ophelia's Journey is part of The Forever Girl Journals. This time we get to know Ophelia. She works for a family in a time where conjectures and suspicion could make anyone persecuted. A fateful day, an ouroboros mark formed on her neck, causing the change of events that will transform her forever.

The novella continuous with the paranormal mythic world of beings created in Sophia's Journey. Here we see Ophelia becoming part of this world of creatures as a Cruor. Story is engaging and it's notable the use of descriptions to heighten the narrative. Slow story that gets dynamism once the MC embraced her new nature. Takes a little time to get use to Ophelia's accent, but it is not a big drawback.

Find the ending rushed. Felt I wanted to know more about the characters. Who knows, maybe we will see more of them in Hamilton's future projects.

The cover: gorgeous, mysterious, great colors

About A Match Made In Heaven (from goodreads):
Aspiring comic book artist Morning Glory Conroy already has too much to juggle at her San Francisco high school--mean girls, inconsiderate cliques, wannabe gangbangers--without the complication of falling for new student Gabriel. Glory's best friend, Julia, was interested in him first, and if it weren't for Julia's deteriorating home life, Glory wouldn't have had a chance to get Gabriel to herself. But does he count as a real boyfriend if his overbearing guardian forbids even kissing? Soon Gabriel is pushing Glory to show her work at art events, and the new relationship starts taking Glory away from her bff just when Julia needs her. Glory is in for a startling revelation when she discovers not only Gabriel&#…
