Sort order. I had a great time writing this short story. It's a quick read-good for a lunch break or when you're waiting to pick the kids up from school. Jan 13, Christel Grady rated it it was amazing. First off, thanks Stacey for another awesome read! Oftentimes, I enjoy reading novellas, as I can read two or three in a brief span of time. I adore the characters! I seem to be on an angel kick lately?! I think not.
Anyway, this was a truly enjoyable read, and now I'm off to read Rebellion. It almost amkes me glad I waited a bit to read this one! Nov 02, Kristi rated it it was amazing.
What an amazing novella to start off a new series! I started reading and didn't stop until the last page.
The characters are captivating, the story fantastic and the anticipation for the next installment unbearable! Every supernatural family must sacrifice their first-born on the day of their 21st birthday in order to stay in favor with the Gods; this sacrifice will ensure prosperity and good fortune for the family. Each sacrifice is assigned a Guardian to watch over them; to keep them alive and o What an amazing novella to start off a new series!
Each sacrifice is assigned a Guardian to watch over them; to keep them alive and out of peril until their day of sacrifice DOS. I had to stop and appreciate the irony there. Flora only has 3 days until her DOS, her guardian literally just resigned and her replacement isn't here yet. Pursued and Guardianless she flees to the very public sacrifice of Adrian, hoping that witnesses will put a stop to the attempt on her life; instead, it earns her a new Guardian in the guise of Julian.

With the help of Julian, Adrian's sexy compassionate Guardian, Flora survives multiple attempts on her life but she also learns that there are secrets and an important prophecy that have been kept from her since her birth. Flora makes it to her DOS but what happens there is anything but what is expected! Flora makes for a fabulous heroine and Rebellion, the next installment in the series will be highly anticipated.

It is only three days until her day of sacrifice. As the oldest child, at 21 she must give her life for her family.

She must be there and alive to grant her family favors from the Gods. It has been tradition in all paranormal families for centuries, but she soon finds out there are many secrets her family her kept from her, including the fact that she is not her family's true sacrifice. The series follows Flora's struggle to stay alive and her fight against the gods to end the horrible tradition of sacrificing young adults. The Prophecy begins with immediate conflict and drew me quickly into the story.
The background information was presented in the action but did not slow down the pacing of the story. Rebellion fits right in where The Prophesy left off, but also works as a stand-alone. The pace is slower in the beginning, but speeds up to keep the story moving. Dormant is another stand-alone but a great addition to the Day of Sacrifice story. While there is not as much action, this story carried the same intensity by playing with my mind. Each story brings about the development of two different characters and their relationship with each other.
Day of Sacrifice is a fabulous paranormal romance series. I look forward to reading the next story, Takeover, which is set to release in July Oct 12, Keri rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone. I just read 'Day of Sacrifice' and it was fantastic! I really want to give a great review so you guys will read it right away, but I don't want to give out any spoilers. The characters, Julian and Flora, are awesome. Stacey Benefiel always comes up with the best names for her characters.
The world she has created in 'Day of Sacrifice' is genius and a bit frightening. Living your life knowing that you will be condemning your first born child I just read 'Day of Sacrifice' and it was fantastic! Living your life knowing that you will be condemning your first born child to death is awful, but what about actually being that child, that sacrifice. No wonder Flora is a wild child, what does her behavior matter when she's going to be dead in a few days just so her father's business will flourish and the Gods are satisfied? I enjoyed this story because the entire time I was reading it I was thinking, "I'd probably do the same exact thing.
But then there's a twist, as with all great fantasy stories, and Flora is given a new Guardian Angel.
