Out of Control: The Sentinels #0.5 by Alexandra Ivy

Book Review:

The best part about a really good series prequel is the way it whets your appetite for more. Alexandra Ivy puts two compelling and steamy characters together with a lovely taste of what is to come, and gives you the need to read more.

With a writing style that flows smoothly from one high point to the next, Ivy packs details and descriptions into her prose, mixes in some action and gives some breathing (or panting) room with erotic interludes that are sure to heat up your seat.

Introducing us to Angela and Nikolo, and bringing us back into the world of the Sentinels, each new twist, turn and interaction brings a fuller picture and more to enjoy.  Niko is a Sentinel, sent to pose as a professor and protect Angela from the clutches of a psychopathic Sentinel.  Angela is wonderful: smart and funny and completely convinced that she is utterly mortal.

The introduction of this series is fast paced, and though I would have liked a bit more in terms of Valhalla and Angela’s backstory, as a start to a new series, I believe that Ivy has another winner. Engaging, steamy and intriguing, the powers and battles here are just starting.

About Alexandra Ivy

I'm not exactly sure when I fell in love with books. Probably on my mother's knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me. I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library. Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries? Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and J.R.R. Tolkien just to name a few. I read poetry, essays, biographies, and plays. In fact, I read anything I could get my hands on.

Years later (no, I'm not admitting how many) I'm still an avid reader, and my tastes are still as varied as they were in my youth, which I suppose helps to explain why I enjoy writing regency historicals under the name of Deborah Raleigh, as well as my contemporary paranormals as Alexandra Ivy. For now that is enough to keep me busy, but who knows what the future might hold!

I do have a few other loves in my life besides reading and writing, the most important being my unbelievably patient husband, David, and my two sons, Chance and Alexander. Without their constant support and belief in me, I never could have been able to follow my dreams. They are truly my heroes.
