***** REVIEW ***** EVIL by TIJAN

You know that group of people in school that everyone fears? Popular. Beautiful. The in-crowd?

That was my family. Kind of.

We were above that group. We held court over everyone else. We were the best looking. We were the mysterious and elusive ones. Most of the girls wanted to (and did) date the guys, but they didn’t want to be one of us. They couldn’t be. They were our prey.

We were the feared.

But like every family, nothing is as it seems. That was my truth.

Kellan was in his own league. He was our leader and he was the one no one messed with. No one dared. He was ruthless, powerful, and no one could match him…

Except for me.

I was about to find out just how different I was from my family.

**Evil is a full-length paranormal romance stand-alone.

My Review – by Lou

Well, I simply don’t know where to start!! I’m going to be honest, apart from a little dabble with a certain Vampire series, EVIL is MY FIRST paranormal read! And OH MY GOODNESS – what a wonderful, fantastic, consuming and addictive ride Tijan managed to take me on! She has introduced me to a genre that I had no experience of. I went in totally blind with no expectations (apart from a niggling feeling and concern of “what if I don’t like it?”, and came out totally in love with the characters, completely in love with the storyline, in love with Tijan’s words, even more in love with Tijan herself (she’s just proved that I will read ANYTHING she writes)….. and a little bit in love with the Paranormal!!!

I was drawn into this book and the storyline from the very first page. EVIL is based around the well known, stunningly beautiful, popular yet feared, Braden family living in the community of Poehler. They are all at school together and we have Shay, Kellan, Vespar and Guiseppa (Gus).

This story will take you on a massive roller-coaster of a journey through the eyes of Shay. Shay and Kellan have a strong bond and embark on a journey of discovery, lies, betrayals, family loyalties, friendships, soul-finding, and love. We discover the world that Shay, Kellan and the rest of the Braden’s live in is not all that it seems. Shay discovers she is not who she thinks she is, and she discovers that her family are not who she thinks they are either. The story is full of mystery, suspense and romance. There is constant action and drama, with the story-line weaving in and out, creating a wonderful tale, allowing the readers imagination to take hold and become immersed in this world.

Honestly, I fell in love with it ALL. I’m not going to say any more about the story itself as I think everyone should discover and experience this book for themselves. And if you’ve not read paranormal before, I suggest you start with this one! The characters are fantastic and I simply could not put it down. I devoured it from beginning to end and I’m off to check out Tijan’s other paranormal books now!! Thank you Tijan for yet another fabulous read!

***** For me, a 100% 5 STAR READ!!! *****

“Kellan and Shay Braden, why is it always you two? And if it’s not the two of you, it’s your other two siblings. All the time.” Mr. Mirchak approached, shaking his head. “Who’d you fight this time, Kellan?”
I should’ve felt something, maybe remorse, but there was nothing. Matt had assaulted me. Kellan felt it and protected me. And if Matt chose to run away, then that was Matt’s decision. But still…I should’ve felt guilty.
Kellan drew to his full height of six one and squared his lean shoulders against the portly forty-something teacher. He shook his head. “Do you see anyone, Mr. Mirchak?”
The balding teacher shook his head. “I never see anyone, Kellan. That’s the problem. But I know that someone’s going to show up with a busted eye, maybe a shoulder. I don’t know, but there’s always something.” He turned away, but mumbled over his shoulder, “…too damn scared to say a thing…”
Kellan waited until the teacher had turned the corner before he flashed a smile. “What do you think?”
I rolled my eyes and kicked my locker open. “You didn’t have to hurt his jaw.”
“Right.” Kellan fell against the locker beside mine and studied me. “At least this way, he’ll shut up all the time. I’m getting tired of his mouth. The guy thinks he knows you too much. He doesn’t know anything.”
“Still…” I muttered as I bent inside to grab my book.
“Still,” Kellan mimicked me and yanked me out. “Why didn’t you do something, Shay?”
“What are you talk—?”
“Don’t. Not with me,” Kellan interrupted. “You could’ve stopped him long before I came around the corner. You knew I was coming. Why didn’t you stop him?”
“Maybe I wanted to hear his rhetoric on how hot I must be for him.”
“Don’t be funny, Shay. You’re not the funny one, remember?”
I smirked. “That’s funny. I don’t think that role’s been taken in our family.”
Kellan’s hand tightened on my arm. He pulled me closer and bent his head to my ear. “You always wait for me. Why?”
Maybe I couldn’t bring myself to do what he enjoyed. Maybe I liked knowing he’d always protect me or that someone would protect me. Maybe…maybe I enjoyed the sick pleasure knowing that someone like Matt could never really hurt me, though he didn’t know that fact. Or maybe…I whispered, “I don’t know, okay?”
I didn’t know. I had ideas. I had possible scenarios, but the only truth was, I could’ve easily broken Matt’s hold on me and I didn’t.

Hello~ (waves)

I didn’t begin writing until after undergraduate college. There’d been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can’t blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I’m hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.
