I had never read anything but L.G. O'Connor and when presented with the review book options for future tours I selected Trinity Stones simply due to it's paranormal aspects. I had no clue if I would like it or not but the synopsis was intriguing. I decided to give it a shot and see how it went.
Cara is just your regular, everyday investment banker with a bit of an anxiety issue. She is in love with her married ex-boyfriend and can't seem to find meaning or happiness in her life. She was okay with the way her life had turned out and accepted the normality of it. That was until learned she was part of a trinity of angels and their messengers. Her world was turned upside down with a large inheritance and the discovery of angels and demons actually existing. She is destined to be the person who tips the scales between good and evil. One of twelve at least. While navigating the treterous waters of her new world, she meets a man who seems almost too good to be true. Since her break up with her ex, Kai, she has not even entertained the idea of finding love, but in Simon she just might be able to.
Kai is a genetic scientist attempted to sequence a cure for some sort of abnormality presented to him anonymously through his work. He has taken over after his predecessor was killed, but he is starting to see that maybe his mentor was not simply killed but murdered. As he starts digging into the research left behind things just don't seem to be adding up. Kai seems to have a vital role in this tipping point in Cara's new world as well. For some reason dark forces are determined to keep Kai working at finding the cure they so desperately want. They are even willing to resort to kidnapping his daughter if it keeps him on the straight and narrow.
Cara and Kai always felt connected, but now they may discover they have more in common than just a past love. Add to that the desperation to free Kai's daughter from evil and Cara's new love interest and it makes for a very interesting world. Can good triumph over evil or will Cara and Kai fail miserably.
I have to admit, some of the scientific talk in the story was a bit over my head. O'Connor creates a very detailed world and if not careful, things can be overlooked and forgotten that are vital to the story. The trinity stones were also another area I found myself confused over. What exactly are they and how do they predict future events?
There was a major saving grace though and that was the love connection between Cara and Simon. I loved Simon so much. Cara was okay. She seemed to take everything rather easily where normal people would have freaked out several times over the course of the book. Simon seemed to be the most emotionally volatile of the pairing even though he wasn't supposed to be so emotionally driven.
Overall, the book was fairly good.
