Synopsis:  When an earthquake measuring seven on the Richter scale hits the tiny town of Waterloo, Iowa, life gets very strange indeed for the locals. A dark, hulking, pyramid-shaped tower pushes its way up through a corn field in Blackhawk County, thrusting the city into turmoil and into the national spotlight.

The “Black Tower” as it’s called is believed to be dormant, but when special tactical teams are sent inside to investigate, special team member Dane Coles is confronted by the impossible: a beautiful creature who claims to have been cursed and cast down into oblivion within the Garden of Eden. Now, the mystery creature is using the Black Tower as a doorway to the surface.

Coles has been trained for encounters with creatures made of real flesh and bone and blood, not for encounters with supernatural beings. What is he to do with this intelligence – and this “angel?”

My Review: A mix of science-fiction, military action and romance, Daughters of Twilight offers something for every reader.

Jackson-Fink was able to capture my attention from the very start with the prologue.  Her description of the man running from the black tower, desperate to escape the horrors he’d witnessed had me hooked.

This was a unique story and the characters were well-developed, most, easy to become attached to.  The military action did not take away from the love story that is embedded here and the fast pace made this book hard to put down.

As a side note, there were several instances where words were obviously out of place.  For instance summit was used where submit was the proper word.  Although this tripped me up, I didn’t let it deter from the great story.

Disclaimer:  I received this book from the author free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

    This sounds engrossing although I would be quite put off by the improper word substitutions.
