The Celestial Kiss by Belle Celine

- Goodreads Synopsis -
Seventeen year old Lilith is a misfit in the most literal sense of the word. She is a half-human creature, imprisoned among vampires that tout themselves as family. But Lilith has never wanted anything so badly as to be normal, living like one of the humans who often come to her father’s home seeking eternal life. And she’s never wanted to escape her ex-boyfriend more than the day he rips out a woman’s heart.

So she does the unthinkable. She runs away with no plan, no money, and no regrets…until she is bitten and captured by werewolves who insist she is a threat to the very humans she wants to be like. Now she has to face the bitter reality that she has run from one prison to another, nothing more than a pawn in their game.

To make matters worse, she only has until the next full moon to find a cure for the werewolf bite that tethers her to a grisly fate.

Caught in a tug of war between the vampires and werewolves, Lilith is forced to question everything she’s ever known. But she isn’t alone in her journey. The very man whose bite could end her life is willing to do most anything to make it right, and Lilith can’t be sure whether she’s falling in love with him.

One thing is for certain…no one is giving up without a fight.

"The greatest of oaths offer a physical seal. They are preserved with a kiss or sworn in blood. When we fall in love, it is a commitment we make, not only to another person, but to the creator. That covenant is sealed with a kiss- a celestial kiss."
"A bite." he nodded. "Much like the one on your shoulder."

I had no idea what to expect when I first opened The Celestial Kiss by Belle Celine. To be honest, I did not even know the book was even about vampires. I remember reading the first few pages and thinking that Lilith was the name of a demon on the show Supernatural! haha! As I read further I learned that Lilith was in fact a vampire, and then I began to realize that her name was extremely fitting.

Belle Celine has written my absolute favorite vampire verses werewolf book! This book easily rose to the top of my list, with my favorite books. The story line was so different and unique. I have said it before, and ill say it again.. my absolute favorite books are books that are different than your normal, every day stories. I have never read a book like this one.

Lilith is something extremely special, and no one seems to know just how special she is. Every one can see how different she is, but they are unaware of what really lies inside of her. While staying with the King and Queen of the werewolves, Lilith learns a lot about herself, vampires, and werewolves. The history between the werewolves and vampires is so in depth and complex. I was completely blown away by the fact that all this information had actually come from Belle's mind. I continued to blow away when Belle threw us all a big curve ball and gave us a little more information about Lilith, her family, and her ancestors! Belle gave me all these awesome facts and mysteries and then at the end of the book she slammed them all together in front of my face and left me shocked.

Belle described her characters so realistically that It was easy to feel their pain and their happiness. I enjoyed watching the characters grow, fall in love, and learn. You will quickly learn to hate Xian, but the werewolf family will surprise you. I did not like the werewolves at first! I was extremely unsure about James' family, but halfway through the book I had a change of heart. That is when I realized how much I absolutely love this book. James' and Lilith's relationship is what sets this book above and beyond other books. You can't forget the Celestial Kiss! The kiss has a lot to do with how unique this book is as well. Actually, now that I think about it.. the kiss is basically everything! The kiss is so important!

Belle Celine has gained a huge fan, and I can not wait until she releases the sequel. I need to know what happens next and I have no idea how I am going to make myself wait because I am not a very patient person! With all that said.. you guys need this book in your life. Picking up this book will not be something you regret.
