Trinity Stones by L. G. O'Connor

Author: L. G. O'Connor
Publisher: She Writes Press
Date of publication: April 2014

Anxiety-ridden New York investment banker, Cara Collins, has little to smile about on her twenty-seventh birthday between a hostile work environment and her impossible romantic situation with her longtime friend and first love, Dr. Kai Solomon. But before the day ends, she learns she has inherited $50 million—a windfall that must remain secret or risk the lives of those close to her. 

As Cara unravels the truth surrounding her inheritance, she makes a startling discovery: angels walk among the living, and they’re getting ready to engage in a battle that will determine the future of the human race. In the midst of these revelations, she meets mysterious and sophisticated Simon Young, who offers her the promise of romance for the first time since Kai—but when Kai and his daughter are kidnapped by dark forces, Cara must choose: accept her place in a 2,000-year-old prophecy foretold in the Trinity Stones as the First of the Twelve who will lead the final battle between good and evil . . . or risk losing everything she holds dear.

Trintiy Stones is a unique take on the Angel/Nephilim genre. Cara's life changes when she finds out she has an immense inheritance coming her way.  The catch is that she can't talk about it.  Once she finds out the real reason behind it, she must decide if she will answer her calling.  It turns out that she is a Seeker and part of a Trinity.  As the Seeker, she will one day try to hep someone make the decision between good and evil. It's a bit convoluted, but as the story unfolds the idea becomes clearer.

 While a little slow at first, I ended up enjoying the story in the long run. In the beginning, I felt a bit disoriented and then there was a huge information dump. But once the real story got going, I loved it. I liked the idea of the trinity and stones.  There is the Seeker, the Guardian and the Messenger.  And in the middle is the Trinity stone, the one who needs the help.  As I said earlier, it's a bit convoluted, but it makes sense as the story progresses.  The characters were fun and interesting.  I loved the bond between Simon and Cara. That their souls recognized each other was very sigh worthy.  They were a lot of fun to watch.  

The book is filled with romance, science, angels and of course evil demons.  This is a great debut book and the first of a promising series.  I look forward to reading the next one!
