Genre: Paranormal

What southern-grown, rock star Rick Chamberland doesn’t know about his family’s dark past comes to light when he returns home to Louisiana at the request of his mother. Rick has spent the last fifteen years of his life dedicated to music, touring the world, completely oblivious to the secrets coded in his legacy. Meanwhile, Song Peters, a dutiful daughter taking care of a dying mother, dreams of the day she can break free of small town life and pursue her one true passion, singing. Rick meets Song and instantly sparks ignite. They make beautiful music together and soon find that they share similar upbringings. Rick comes to learn that their families are supernaturally intertwined and that the one denominator (a demon by the name Nova) connected to both families threatens to destroy them all if they do not obey. 

  Huh. This book was unusual. I'm not afraid to say that it wasn't my type of book. I still enjoyed it and definitely saw where others would enjoy it. I don't think the blurb does this book justice, though. The start is slow, but if you stick with it, the story definitely evolves.

  Rick wasn't a favorite of mine. It wasn't due to lack of development. It was just lack of liking his character on my part. I felt strangely protective of Song, though. Song's mother and her best friend Reagan both got on my nerves and bad side. Just a warning: this isn't a romance even though it has it's fair share of erotic moments.

  I'm not sure who I would recommend this book to. If you like dark books involving the paranormal, you may like this. Like I said, it wasn't my cup of tea. But I definitely think this is a book just waiting for the right reader to stumble upon it.

**I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. My thanks to Caddell Brown.

About the Author
  Caddell Brown, born and raised in East Texas, authors a range of speculative fiction. Among her early influences are artists Rene Magritte, film director Andrei Tarkovsky and authors Dan Simmons, Toni Morrison and Ai. It wasn't until after taking a course in Creative Non-Fiction that she grasped what writing could be as a form of expression and while most of her works are fiction, there's always something inside each story that touches on her years as an observant youth. Freakquency, her first novel under this penname, was inspired by the storytelling of her uncles, and other legends and folklore from around the world.
