review: Stained by Ella James

After a fire destroys seventeen-year-old Julia’s home and kills her foster parents, she chases the half-demon responsible across the country and back, determined to avenge her family and discover why a host of celestial baddies want her dead. With Julia is enigmatic hottie - Cayne, who has his own score to settle with the half-demon, and who might be just as dangerous as the creature he and Julia hunt.

Ella James is a Colorado author who writes teen and adult romance. She is happily married to a man who knows how to wield a red pen, and together they are raising a feisty two-year-old who will probably grow up believing everyone's parents go to war over the placement of a comma.

Ella's books have been listed on numerous Amazon bestseller lists, including the Movers & Shakers list and the Amazon Top 100; two were listed among Amazon's Top 100 Young Adult Ebooks of 2012.

My Review: 

Stained is an extremely fast paced, unique NA/YA paranormal story.  There's a lot going on in this story and you really have to pay close attention to what you're reading.  I think it's an interesting play on angels and demons, but I still really don't understand half of the world going on here.  I like the characters, Julia and Cayne, and am looking forward to read about them in the future.  I think their attraction to one another was intense, but then i also think they're to young to be reading about them bumping and grinding.  I'm all for a good dirty book, but the girl is only 17.  I'm also really interested in some of the side characters and I really want to know what everything will eventually mean.  There are just so many questions...I want more.
