Product Description

Product Description

At eighteen years old, Cassidy has suffered more loss than most…

At the end of her senior year, her boyfriend, Jace Peters, was killed in a car accident, and her grandmother died only weeks later of a heart attack. Emotionally lost, Cassidy desperately searches for an heirloom her boyfriend was wearing in the crash—her mother’s gold ring. But during her search, Cassidy discovers more than her ring.

She finds a gate to the Demon Realm….

A battle is brewing, and Killian—head of the Demon hunters—preps his Clan for the approaching conflict. They’ve been working to secure the gate between his realm and the mortal world. But it’s been nearly impossible since Rya—a voracious demon on a quest to expand her power—devoured the soul of his Clan’s necromancer. Now Rya is possessed with the necromancer’s powers and she may break through the gate at any moment.

Apparently Rya isn’t the only one Killian has to worry about…

When Cassidy accidentally crosses into the Demon Realm, Killian can’t understand how a human girl survived the transition. Now he has to find a way to return her to her own world, or risk her being caught in the crossfire, which is a complication he definitely doesn’t need.

Once back in the Human Realm, Cassidy readies herself for battle. She signs up for Krav Maga classes, where she meets Tyler Romaitis—a handsome, tenacious, humble guy. He seems almost perfect, but nothing is ever that easy.

And as the balance between good and evil shifts, Cassidy finds herself—and her ring—at the heart of the conflict for the survival of mankind.

*This book was provided via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

This book was intriguing and different from most of the angel and demon books I've read before. After losing her boyfriend and Grandma who was like a mother-figure to her, Cassy is all alone. The one link she has to her past; her mother, grandmother and boyfriend is a ring that used to be her mother's and which she gave to her boyfriend. After finding this ring a whole range of discoveries await Cassy. I really liked all the characters but in particular Cassy, Killian and Casper. I really hope Killian and Cassy end up together.

The plot was also good and the book was fast paced and filled with action. It was an addictive read and I couldn't put it down. I really liked the idea of the underground complex and for some reason it reminded me of some post-apocalyptic compound rather than a headquarters for demon hunters. The one criticism I have is that the story ended kind of abruptly. One minute I am engrossed in the story excited to read about new developments and the next my screen tells me I can read an excerpt from the next boo. I'm not impressed. :( Needless to say I can't wait to read the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MAJOR HIT! 6 March 2016
By Kimberly Vanderbloom - Published on

I was given an advanced reading copy in exchange for a honest review.

I have been doing a countdown for this book to release. I've read the synopsis and saw the teasers. The anticipation was going to kill me. I was given the opportunity to get my hands on a early copy and I had to sweep it up. I admired the cover because it is gorgeous. I can't get over the title. Between the Bleeding Willows. There is something special about willows trees for me. Since I was a little girl they always represented magic and reading. I couldn't wait to crack it up.

Once I cracked it open I got to met the main character Cassidy. The first paragraph got me hooked and I knew I was in for a adventure. The story was well paced and had twists and turns. The ending will leave you with a bit of cliffhanger which I think I have figured out. I was in love with her right away. I had tears in my eyes within the first few chapters. I instantly felt connected to her. She is a complex character and you get to enjoy the raw emotions she experiences. It will pull on strings. A little bit later we met Killian. Now for everyone out there he is my new book boyfriend and you can't have him. He is dark, mysterious, and thoughtful demon hunter. He makes the perfect man for me. He is also a bit complex because he carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. It was interesting to get his point of view and Cassidy as well. I loved all the secondary characters with Casper being my favorite because of his love for books. Now my favorite moment was when Cassidy kissed Casper. It was hilarious and well planned.

Overall I fell in love with the series and plan on reading every book that comes out. It is written by a author who is a master storyteller. If you enjoy magic, love, heart break, courage, selflessness,tenderness and unforgettable characters then I would recommend this book for you.
5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised Me! 7 March 2016
By TiffanyReadz - Published on
This is the second D.A. Roach book I have read and again, she has successfully taken me out of my comfort zone and I enjoyed it. Not a huge reader of YA books, however with hers, it doesn't seem to make a difference. I was hooked from chapter one of Between the Bleeding Willows and stayed that way until the very end.

"Bound to both heaven and hell-yet not at the same time." ~ Serena

That pretty much sums up what Cassidy is now facing. After losing her grandmother and boyfriend Jace in a short period of time, Cassidy decides to go back to Jase's accident scene to retrieve her mother's ring as it's the only thing she has left of her family. Upon finding the ring, Cassidy finds herself in a world she never believed existed and is absolutely shocked at it's newest edition.

Accidentally entering the demon realm, Cassidy surprises herself as well at the Clan leader Killian at surviving the transition. She shouldn't have made it through the gates unharmed, which makes him very suspicious. However, Killian has other things on his mind, such as who is releasing demons and how to keep his clan safe. The action only amps up from here.

The review is vague as to not spoil any of the story line, but the book is not. D.A. Roach opened my eyes to paranormal once again and I am glad for it. Between the Bleeding Willows was well written, with excellent detail that leapt off of the pages. I will patiently be waiting for book two, it'll be interesting to see how it all unfolds. Team Killian right here!

Between the Bleeding Willows - D A Roach 5 Hashtags

This book totally captivated me and drew me in, I was right there totally transported into Cassidy's rapidly changing world. There isn't a dull moment throughout and the writing is fantastic, you can really feel that lovely connection with the characters.

There is so much going on in this book that it kept my interest throughout. Cassidy recently loses her boyfriend of 4 years, Jace was her college sweetheart and she is completely devastated. Shortly after Cassidy also loses her Gram, now she is left with no-one to lean on. When Cassidy returns to the scene of Jace's accident to look for her missing ring everything in her world changes.

Cassidy is a really lovely person, she is also really strong and independent. Killian, a demon hunter, is completely focused on the job he needs to do and tries very hard to ignore his feelings for Cassidy despite their bonding by their tattoos.

This book is so well written, I seriously loved every minute and I am so looking forward to reading the next book in this series. DA roach please don't make me wait too long! I highly recommend this book for any paranormal fan - a very big easy 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't Wait for More of Cassidy and Killian 10 March 2016
By Carey Fletcher - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I really enjoyed this book and found it difficult to put it down after reaching a point where the action picked up. When I reached 75%, I was afraid to read it on my lunch break as I had been doing because I was afraid I would get to a point that I just couldn’t stop reading.

The book started out a little slow for me and I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to give the book a good review. But then we’re introduced to the demon/demon hunter world and it got real interesting. I haven’t read many demon hunter books and was confused about some of the terminology used in the story and had to google it. Surprisingly enough there appears to be a lot of information in the world wide web about hunting demons.

The main female character Cassidy really seemed to grow throughout the book. At the start of the book I had the impression that she was a meek and shy girl. But as the book goes on she seemed capable of kicking some ass! I'm really looking forward to seeing what she learns to do with her newfound abilities and connection to the demon hunter world.

I enjoyed the struggling relationship between Cassidy and Killian, but was a bit disappointed we didn’t get to see them connect more. But I guess maybe there was more of a focus on the demon hunting. I was disappointed to see the bond between the two removed and actually a bit surprised to see that it could be done. I hope the bond is introduced again. I’d like to see how it could affect the two characters.

I was disappointed that the book ended without resolutions to several things and without a happy period ending. I know things need to be unresolved to continue the series into multiple books. I just wish there could have been a way to end the book on a break between bad things of sorts where people are happy and things are looking up.

I hope I don’t have to wait too long to read book 2!

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't wait to see how the story progresses in the next installment! 6 March 2016
By S Wilde - Published on
I was first introduced to D.A. Roach through her young adult romance novel Rarity. Although Between the Bleeding Willows comes from an entirely different genre, Roach weaves her story with the same finesse seen in her previous novel. The book starts out with the story of Cassidy and the hardships she has endured throughout her short life. Cassidy finds purpose and destiny through her discovery of the Demon Realm and Demon Hunters. Throughout the novel, I found myself relating to her character on many levels-the mark of a great author. I wanted to be her, yet I also wanted to protect her from the things she had to experience in her life. The plot is fast-paced and packed with tons of action and emotion. I would recommend it for anyone who reads paranormal/action novels, or anyone who simply loves to read books from a very talented author. I can't wait to see how the story progresses in the next installment!
