It’s been a week since 17-year old Zoe Jabril found out her best friend is a Guardian Angel, her boyfriend is a Nephilim, and a fellow classmate is a Fairy. What makes Zoe so special? She’s destined to unify Enlightens to battle evil—that is, if Demons don’t kill her first.

With ‘Project: Enlightens Unite’ underway, Zoe learns the history of the area wolf pack and realizes she’s in a race against time to get her newly discovered talents under control. Despite struggling to fight a mysterious attraction to her new neighbor, rescue her boyfriend from Demons, and travel into Fairyland to convince the Summer King to join the fight, Zoe must still attend high school classes so her nosy parents don’t suspect anything is out of the ordinary before Demons can mount another attack.

Zoe will need all the help she can get, from the most unlikely of sources, if she’s to save her boyfriend’s life and prevent the Devil from escaping Hell on her eighteenth birthday.


I read this book on April and originally posted my review on Goodreads.

Action-packed and intense!

The Passage, A dance, & A Little White Dress is the book two of the Enlighten series. I already read the first book which is The Guardian, A Sword & Stilettos and I ended up not liking it much. But this went beyond my expectations.

Zoe Jabril, the Redeemer, together with her guardian angel best friend, half angel half human boyfriend, and a summer fairy and wolf friends, continued the journey to stop evil from destroying Earth. The story focused on them finding and gaining allies to help them fight against the demons and the king of all evil, Sammael.

Because I already read the first book in the series and I didn’t actually loved it, I expected this book to be just the same. But surprisingly, it turned out to be different. Here, I saw a lot of improvements on Zoe’s character. She became more interesting unlike on the first book – where I liked her friends even more – because there’s just nothing interesting about her. And I saw almost all of the other aspects of this book improved. Everything worked altogether very well. It’s surprisingly much better.

It is a fast read and I didn’t even noticed the end coming. I enjoyed every single page of it. There is so much action and the events are just so intense which never failed to keep me very entertained. And the ending was definitely a cliff hanger! I really need to read the book 3 right away!

Good vs. evil, demons, angels, wolves, fairies, and other mythical creatures and a prophecy. Cliche, yes. But if you’re still interested with those and want a fast, exciting  and entertaining read, I recommend this to you.

13665730Kristin D. Van Risseghem grew up in a small river town along the Mississippi River with her parents and older sister. Currently, Kristin lives in Minnesota with her husband and two Calico cats. She also loves attending book clubs, going shopping, and hanging out with friends. She has come to realize that she absolutely has an addiction to purses and shoes. They are her weakness and probably has way too many of both.

In the summer months, Kristin can usually be found lounging on her boat, drinking an ice cold something. Being an avid reader of YA and Women’s Literature stories, she still finds time to read a ton of books in-between writing. And in the winter months, her main goal is to stay warm from the Minnesota cold!
