When Hannah Sawyer dropped out of college after losing her scholarship she spent five years weaning herself of alpha males and alcohol, but when she decides to return to finish her degree she finds those things rolled into one in the intoxicating blue eyes of fellow non-traditional student Daniel Keith. What she soon learns is that her newfound addiction to Daniel impairs her judgment beyond any mixed drink a frat boy could have handed her. She should have left when he cut his arm with a car key to show her his white blood. Or when he had a run-in with a dark angel on one of their dates. But Hannah stays, entranced by this man who remains a mystery to her. Who or what is Daniel? And why does the small town of Spring Hill, Tennessee seem to summon his enemies? As romance lures Hannah further into a shadowy world most people never see, she realizes she’s gotten herself in deeper than she knew possible. And this time there’s no option of dropping out.”

review

Before you read this review, keep in mind that this is coming from someone who is NOT a big fan of paranormal books. Lee Wilson’s The Last Hybrid: Bloodline of Angels blew my mind! It’s very well written, it has A LOT of twists that will leave your eyebrows raising, and has an interesting plot. When I was reading the first page, I already knew that this one is going to be one of my favorites. The prologue was really intriguing and a bit scary which made me keep on reading.

It is written in 3rd person point of view and focuses on our protagonist, Hannah. She comes back once again to college in Tennessee, hoping that she’ll do much better in school. She ends up friending Erika, Anthony (Erika’s boyfriend) and Daniel. Unlike male protagonists in paranormal books, Daniel didn’t have that mysterious vibe which I LOVE about him. I really liked Erika’s character the most because she was the most realistic one and was funny at times. I love the relationship she shares with Anthony and how she dealt with the obstacles that they faced. Overall, the characters were well thought of although sometimes I think Daniel can be a bit of a douche. There is also love triangle which plays a big part in the plot so I was more than fine with that. This is also the first time where I was eager to know on who Daniel will end up with (Hannah or Natalie which is Daniel’s best friend since birth). I honestly don’t care about who ends up with who when I read, but I was really invested on the romance on this one.

There is seriously TONS of mystery and twists & turns from start to finish when you read this book. It seems like by reading the summary, it sounds like every other paranormal books, BUT it’s not. There’s MORE to it which surprised me! It will leave you at the edge of your seat and wanting for more. The plot is original and just plain amazing inside and out. Aren’t you already intrigued just by looking at the cover? It’s a new way to read about angels and other paranormal creatures. If you’re up for an action packed, fast paced and a fresh paranormal story, then this book is for you. I recommend Lee’s novel to everyone, especially if you’re a sucker for paranormal books (or not 😉 ).

interview

Q: The Last Hybrid: Bloodline of Angels is fantastic! How did you come up
with such interesting plot?

Thank you very much! I had a dream as a teenager about a Nephilim
<http://www.gracecentered.com/did-angels-have-children-with-humans.htm>  (as
I’m sure you know, that’s someone who is half angel and half human). In my
dream he faced interesting dilemmas due to his half-angel makeup. The dream
recurred a few more times and his love interest appeared.  In time another
love interest appeared who he had known his entire life and there was more
to deciding between them than meets the eye. That’s where the story stayed
until I finally felt I had to sit down and start writing around the year
2008. The story seemed to unfold in my head. It was as though I was just a
reporter.

Q: When did you find out that you wanted to become a writer?

Third grade. My teacher constantly had us writing stories. She used it as a
learning tool in that she would have us write stories about things we had
learned in class. For example, if we learned about space, we had to write a
space adventure. If we learned something in math, we had to write a story
about raising money for an invention. The details are a little foggy, but
she had us write tons of stories and I loved it! Especially the sci-fi ones.
I’ll probably end up writing one of those in time.

Q: Would you rather be an angel, a vampire, or a hybrid?

At this point in time, a hybrid. And some scholars think that the Bible
suggests we are all a little bit hybrid. Who knows?

Q: Are you currently working on another book?

Yes. The sequel to “The Last Hybrid: Bloodline of Angels.” The first two
chapters will be available for free in a couple of months or less (sign up
at http://www.thelasthybrid.com/email.php to get the two free chapters the
day it’s available).

Q: You’re also an actor! Could you tell us a little bit about your
experiences in the film world?

My acting work is mostly in TV pilots that are held up in network
considerations at the moment and SAG films that are still in festivals. Then
there are music videos of Alan Jackson, Brandi Carlile and others that
probably shouldn’t be considered acting. I’ll be on an episode of Swamp
Murders on Discovery I.D. in July. I see it as story-telling as I do
writing.

    Yay, I’m glad this isn’t your usual paranormal, and has a lot of twists and turns. I usually have a lot of issues that 3rd person POV, though, so we’ll see if I ever get to pick this one up. Fantastic review and interview, though! <333

    I don’t really like third person POV too but some books are exceptions 😛 yeah and I’m a bit skeptical when it comes to angel books or most paranormal books anyway cause like you said, they sound pretty much the same and ordinary… This book seems quite promising and I like books with good mystery!!
