Check out my review for Cornerstone (Book #1) HERE

There’s a man-made storm coming, like a rip in the world, and it’s called the Cusp. 

Struggling to fit into the destiny she’s accepted, Nalena Maxwell has been left with one objective: she must find her murdered grandfather’s Memory. Stolen and hidden away by her own father over seventeen years ago, the Memory could be the key to ending the Cusp and destroying the Ianua’s rival community, The Fury.

Driven by each individual’s selfish desires, The Fury has always lacked the loyalty and organization it needs to be an actual force of power. 

Until now. 

Someone masterminded the Fury’s massive attack on the Ianua, slaughtering twelve of their thirteen community leaders, the Addos. Now there are rumors that the 13th Cura, to which Nali belongs, has gone to the Fury, manipulating the last Addo in order to control the other 12 Curas.

As the Cusp brings the Fury and their own communities against them, Nalena’s Cura must preserve the Ianua, but finding the key to the Cusp isn’t as simple as it seems.

My take…
The world I just signed on for is crumbling as I stand on its threshold. Everything is changing and it seems like this is all my fault.

I just love this book and everything in it. From cover to cover it is packed with romance, suspense, and a lot of action. It’s sad, it’s funny, it’s everything you could want in a book. Not to mention Misty is one flippin’ fantastic storyteller. She writes well and it shows in her work. Plus every now and then you get a glimpse into who Misty is as a person through her work. When you read a funny part in her book…that is the real Misty. She is silly and crazy and it shows in her books.

When starting the book, I was bombarded with so much emotion. It has been nearly a year since I read Cornerstone, and I am embarrassed to say I forgot a few things that happened at the end. So yeah it is a little overwhelming to be reminded of everything that went down. And everyone involved had no time to mourn those that they lost. It was definitely a sad beginning for an awesome book.

I wholeheartedly love these characters and so was so glad to be able to revisit with them again. I missed them, I really did. Especially Garrett. Oh my sweet Garrett, he was even better in this one. Misty also gave us some new characters to love and hate. Take for instance Zane, he was a complete hoot and you can’t help but love him. The things that come out of that skinny boy’s mouth had me rolling the whole time, even in the most stressful of times. Then take for instance his twin sister Zaneen, yup didn’t care much for her. I wanted to like her and at times I did. But I am just not 100% sure about her yet.

Keystone is not your normal everyday supernatural/paranormal. I mean I am not even sure I could classify it as one of those. But it is different and refreshing to read compared to a lot of the other stuff out there. What do you get when you buy Keystone? Well you get an excellent read that is action packed and fast paced. Does it have romance? Absolutely…even though I found it is not the main focus of the story. But it has enough to keep your heart happy. Does it have a cliffhanger? Well yeah…but it is a good one.  I know I was beaming with happiness when all was said and done. So don’t delay…go get it today!!

One of my fav quotes about Garrett: Garrett’s kiss has never been any less than amazing, but this kiss is even more. This kiss is the sun, opening inside me. 
Le sigh
