Pandora's Box by Gracen Miller review and cover reveal for book 2!!

Where does the road to Hell begin?

What happens when your son turns homicidal overnight, killing the family cat before gutting the family dog? Do you cower in fear or fight for your life? Madison Wescott fights against the odds. Distrustful of a God she doesn't believe in, she finds herself face-to-face with a demonic world she didn't know existed and discovers her own soul is darkened with demonic connections.

With good intentions?

Madison had it all…or thought she did. A husband she adored and a son that brought joy to her life. Then one morning her husband kissed her goodbye, headed off to work and disappeared. Life turned upside down, Madison grows desperate and despondent to help her bloodthirsty son after numerous attempts have failed. Only one man dares to challenge the supernatural forces manipulating them.

Or by demonic design?

Phoenix Birmingham breaches her life in a whirlwind of sarcasm and sexual appeal. A hero for the masses—and for her jaded heart—but few will ever know the sacrifices he has made or the sacrifices to come. Discovering her entire life has been influenced by multifaceted paranormal beings, Madison is determined to defeat the apocalyptic blueprint fate has decreed. Even with Phoenix's aid, can destiny be denied? Or will demonic design prevail and they pay the crucial price with their souls
My Review:
I've been waiting for this book to come out for several months. While I waited, I enjoyed Gracen's Life Lessons, which are a free prequel to Pandora's Box and can be read on her blog: It is not necessary to read the Life Lessons before you read PB, but I personally think that you will like the characters and understand the situations they are in more.

This book, along with the Life Lessons, is Gracen's masterpiece. Seriously, she hit it out of the park with PB! There is not one thing that I didn't like about it. I love Gracen's writing style and how much thought and details she put into this book. I raced through Pandora's Box. When I had to put it aside, thoughts about the book and its characters were raging through my skull. The story is put together flawlessly, the characters are well developed, and Pandora's Box is just an all around phenominal read!

I've loved Madison ever since I started reading the Life Lessons, and my love for her has only grown since finished reading Pandora's Box. Madison has grown so much. She's sassy, and a great mother, doing everything in her power to protect her son. She'd gladly give her life to protect him. She's also a badass, which is one of the reasons why I love her. I love a strong heroine, and that's exactly what you get with Mads. Nix is charming, dreamy, and also a badass. I love the chemistry the two of them have. They make one dynamic duo. Micah, who I grew to love in the Life Lessons, I came to hate in Pandora's Box. However, he is one wicked and awesome bad guy. Amos is freaking scary at the begining of the book, but he is also very sweet and protective of his mother.

The book has a great pace, spanning several years. The ending is not exactly a cliff hanger, but promises a sequel that will be just as good if not better than the first! I can't wait to read it!

Pandora's Box is the perfect mixture of horror and action. It'll have you flipping the pages like mad and clinging to your seat, trying to find out what comes next, and dying for the next book when you finish.

I urge you not only to pick up one of Gracen's stories, but also encourage you to find her on facebook, twitter, or visit her blog. Along with being a great author, Gracen is also very sweet and likes to talk to her fans.


And now the cover for book 2!!!!

Isn't it lovely???

Happy Reading!
