Trinity (Brethren #1) by Deena Remiel

Emma Livingston, a single mom, has been through hell—and back, so she thinks. While dealing with her five year old daughter’s night terrors, she attempts to live a normal life. That is, until the being from those very nightmares comes to visit her. Has her child been dealing with a real demon while she thought he was only a figment of an active imagination?
Michael D’Angelo is known to everyone in Prophet’s Point, Arizona, as their loving elementary school principal. But to The Brethren, he is known as the most powerful Protector. Immortal and angelic does not mean he’s without doubts or fears. While trying to protect Emma and Hannah, his tortured past comes back to haunt him. Can he overcome it? Or is he doomed to repeat a failure he has lived with for what seems like an eternity?
As Emma and Michael come together to protect Hannah, ancient secrets are revealed and faith is tested. When a prophecy is exposed, questions must be answered… Can Emma learn to trust enough to love again? Can Michael believe in himself enough to show Emma how? And will they be able to protect an innocent child, not to mention save the world as they know it, from total annihilation?

Shelley's Review

What a fantastic read! There are so many things to love about this story; the beautiful setting, the plot line...the romance! What, or I should say, who, I loved most was our tiny heroine, Hannah. Before we even become aware that she's "magic", she graces us with a personality and charm so real, I fell instantly in love with her and the beautiful bond she has with her very loving and protective mother, Emma.
The lovefest doesn't end there. Michael and Emma are equally enthralling with their very passionate and sweet romance. Of course it's not all wine and roses, what fun would that be? The trio have prophesies and epic battles with the nasty forces of evil to endure. And endure, they do.
Deena created a great cast of characters including the Brethren and the evil Namirha and Agremon. The story has it's darkness, evil threatens to win over good. Some scenes are downright terrifying and had me in tears and fearing for not only our heroes, but the fate of the world.
I haven't chosen my favorite of the Brothers (Michael would be too obvious), but they are of course, all beautiful, powerful and each have their own purpose and personality. I'm looking to forward to learning more about them in the next installment, Relic, and reveling in the love between Michael and Emma and their rather large and very special family.
