Becca Vincenza created a world of paranormal beings, keeping me on my toes, and keeping me turning pages trying to find out what was going to happen next. A world that included mystery, love, nightmares, and beauty. Audrey the main character, developed in front of you, growing from a fragile girl to a strong women. She was taken, tortured in many ways, and hidden away from the world for years. She spent most of her time locked away in a cell until she was rescued, by Stone. Stone is the rough-n-tough type, one whom you think would not have a softer side to him.
As much as I say I don't like love stories, I do like romance and want everyone to have that special someone. This being said, I would classify Damaged as a Paranormal Romance. Audrey and Stone's relationship you could watch grow. It was not a forced romance, their romance was built on trust and understanding. It was organic and made the story flow. I think without Audrey letting Stone in I would not care for her character as much.
Even though the story is focused around Audrey and Stone, the supporting characters are well developed and add depth to the story. Nixie, who is a siren is very bubbly and makes words up that are all ocean themed, her and Audrey become instant friends. Elijah is a wraith and is very intimidating and creepy when you read about him in the story. He alone is the only one who knows what Audrey truly is when she herself does not even know. In turn this is why she has been locked away and sought for by many. There is also Jacob, who is the leader of their clan, I personal was not a fan of his but you can come up with your on conclusion.
Becca's world of the paranormal is one that I truly could invision while I was reading her writing. The twist and turns, plot twist and characters make me look forward to the second book in this series. Yes there are 2 other books in this series. Healed is the second book, and Stolen is a Prequel to Damaged. I look forward to getting my hands on these and learning more about this world, and knowing what has become of Audrey and Stone.
