Daughters of Twilight by Collette Jackson-Fink

A quiet little city in the Midwest town of Waterloo, Iowa is about to come to life...with angels!  When an earthquake measuring seven hits Waterloo, a huge black pyramid shaped tower pushes it's way up through a corn field in Blackhawk County spinning the city into the national spot light.  It's thought that the "Black Tower" is dormant, but when special tactical teams are sent inside to investigate, special team member Dane Coles is confronted by the impossible...a beautiful creature that has been cursed and cast down into oblivion within the Garden of Eden, using the 'Black Tower' as a doorway to the surface.  (taken from the back of the book)

Ok, first, if you see this book sitting on the shelf in the store, you're going to pass it by.  You see a few choppers and military, but what really hits you is the picture of a girl in the top left corner.  She has this dreamy look about her that makes you automatically think 'oh.  sappy romance.'  Don't let this fool you.  Yeah, there's definitely some romance.  Not just romance, but the type you find in really good supernatural books where it's strong, deep and lasting.  It's more than most human types of romance love.

For me, this book was about the action.  I had so much fun reading it!  Imagine your favorite end of the world or action movie.  You know that part where you've sat through the first part of the movie and you're finally getting into the nitty gritty good part of the movie?  Yeah...well this book starts there and keeps you there until the end.  It starts with thrilling action and keeps pounding it, but not in a way that tires you out.  It's exciting and fascinating.  I have to admit, I wasn't overjoyed at the angel angle, but Collette did a great job of adding some new twists. 

If action and supernatural is your thing, this a must read.  My only complaint is that the book has been left in such a state that a developing series isn't a possibility.  Not unless she really pushes some time jumping. This is one of those books that's well worth the money and you'll want to share with friends and family.
