Being a teenager is difficult enough without having a family scandal. The beautiful sixteen year-old Sabrina struggles to maintain her individuality, but the ‘townies’ make it near impossible. Ridiculed and taunted on a daily basis, Sabrina needs some sort of explanation as to why she is being hated for no reason. She knows there is a family secret. Her uncertainty is in the details.

Upon first meeting Richard Tate, Sabrina felt an instant attraction. There is a sense of déjà vu she is unable to explain. Richard also feels a sense of knowing Sabrina for a long time. As their relationship continues, Richard asks her to spend her summer helping him restore the home he lived in as a child. It doesn’t take long for Sabrina to realize something is terribly wrong.

In the attic of Richard’s childhood home Sabrina finds his late mother’s diary. It seems there is a mystery surrounding the death of his mother and she is back as a ghost seeking revenge. The mansion is haunted and Sabrina is chosen to find the truth. What will learning the truth do to her relationship with Richard? Will she survive the quest? Does she really have a choice?

Author Sherry Mauro has created an eerie tale of obsession, revenge, and romance. The dark tale of beautiful Sabrina is enthralling. Readers everywhere will be unable to stop until the last word has been read. The writing style of Ms. Mauro is expressive, clever and compelling. Though reminiscent of V.C. Andrews, Mauro has an enchanting quality that is all her own. Even Angels Fall is highly recommended by this reviewer. If you like spooky reads with well-drawn characters and a fascinating plot, then this is the book for you.

Even Angels Fall is the first book in the Devour family trilogy.
