Penemuae- Review

Penemuae (The Watchers of Enoch Series) 
by Lea Barrymire
Genre: Sci-Fi, Mythology Romance

Therefore shall they never find peace… 

The temptations of love and lust brought the two hundred Watchers together. When they decided earthly possessions were more important than divine instruction, they were bound to each other, and the Earth, forever as punishment. 

The Watchers can feel change coming… 

After three thousand years, and more heartache than Watcher General Penemuae can remember, all he wants is an end. Exhausted in heart and soul, he lives to fight the Nephilim and atone for his disgrace, his only objective to rid the Earth of evil. Until the day he meets her. Evelyn, the human woman who shouldn’t have survived, who can see things she shouldn’t, who makes him want things he’s sworn not to desire again. 

Face to face with evil, Evelyn finally has to accept there is more on earth than mere humans when she becomes the target of an immortal malevolence. Saved by an avenging angel with eyes dark as night and remorse to match, she finds herself in the middle of a fight she may not survive.


My Review 

5.0 out of 5 stars great new seriesMarch 17, 2015
This review is from: Penemuae (The Watchers of Enoch Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
This was an amazing story! It's like fallen angels, but not. Fiesty, spunky women that remind me of my friends, and sexy immortal men! The story was great. The history behind the paranormal happenings. The way the story unfolds, I'm dying to know more! This was a great read. I think that anyone who enjoys a "non-shifter" paranormal book, will enjoy this greatly! It's a thrilling story with hints of romance without being over the top sexy. It was refreshing to see this just focus on the story. I can't wait for more.

Chapter One:
Chapter One Evelyn stretched, groaning at the ache in her back. It’d been a long night and she was looking at a two hour class at the medical center before she’d be able to crawl into bed. At least she only had two more charts to make notes in and then she could run home for a much needed shower.

“You doing your civic duty and chatting with teens again tonight, Eve?”

Turning, Evelyn saw her coworker and friend. “Hey, Jess. How’s it going? Yeah, I’m working at Strawberry House again tonight. Two hours with the teen pregnancy group.”

Jess’ thousand watt smile lit up the room. “You’re so good for those girls.”

Evelyn grinned. “You should come out sometime. It’d do you good to see some of them turn their lives around.”

Her friend shook long, blonde hair away from her face. “Naw. I don’t have time, and you know I don’t do well with bratty teens.”

“Yeah, even when we were teens you didn’t deal well with others our age.”

Lea lives in Western New York with her hubby, three children, and miscellaneous critters. Before the rug rats, she lived a life of adventure, following her husband all over Europe with the US military. She's slept in a car outside Paris, drove six hours just to see tulips in the Netherlands, and knocked ash from her shoes at Pompeii. Now she spends her time in life's adventures at soccer games, PTA meetings and school plays.

Lea has loved reading from a very young age, spending many sleepless nights devouring books. Science fiction and paranormal were her favorite genres to read as a teenager, and that love bled into her adult life. She started writing during a bout of insomnia, to fill time, and found it filled a creative void. Now she communes regularly with the characters in her head and tries not to laugh out loud when they say something funny.

When Lea isn't reading, writing or corralling kids, she enjoys watching movies and sciencey shows, or just kicking back and listening to some music.

She loves hearing from readers. Find her hanging out on the web at:
