When world class snowboarding sensation Scott Locke returns to his home in West Virginia to be honored by the ski resort where he worked as a teenager, a freak accident costs him the opportunity to compete in the upcoming X-Games. Broken and distraught, the competition soon becomes a secondary consideration when Scott unwittingly releases a force that has been locked away for centuries, a force so powerful and dark that it threatens all mankind. Parisa is an ancient spirit; exotic, beautiful, and mysterious, yet out of place in today’s world. Scott must find a way to help her acclimate and nurture respect, love, and tolerance for humanity. The plan begins to backfire as Scott develops feelings for Parisa and he is drawn into her world of magic and power. In the face of great temptations, Scott must make the ultimate choice. He must decide to sacrifice his love for the sake of all mankind or give in to his passion and enjoy the riches and rewards of unlimited power.
What I liked most about this book is the author’s choice to have Parisa, the lead woman in the story as the antagonist. This story is about the struggle of a man who fell in love with a spirit, Parisa while trying to save mankind from an evil force. This story is a great escape for anyone wanting to get lost in a world full of mystery and fantasy as the lead character, Scott, struggles with the ordeals of having released a Genie out of a bottle.
I love the plots and character development, and that makes ‘Parisa’ easy to read.
A 4.5 star for this book
