Book Review: Taking Back Sunday by Christy Moran
Taking Back Sunday is well written & organized. The story is filled with mystery, lust and complex characters. We get different character views as we read on. I enjoyed getting to see the story unfold from two different characters who share a deep connection. If you like that kind of story telling you’re in luck with this book.
Sunday is a young adult, woman on the run. I identified a lot with her story. Sometimes we want to run from who we are & escape our pasts. I have learned however, that causes more issues. What does Sunday learn? (that you’ll have to read to find out) I did not put the book down until I finished the entire story.
Christy was able to bring life to her fictional characters. I also rather liked the supernatural element to it. I was not sure what I was getting into when I began reading but Christy’s way with words kept me interested. I could tell there was a great story awaiting me and I’m glad I continued reading.
The interactions of characters and mini stories were, well placed. I liked that the story had branches to it rather than be focused only on the main agenda. The flash backs were written very nicely, and it was great to learn the back-story through more of an emotional place. I am very excited to reading the sequel to see where things venture off too. I will be keeping an eye out to read it!
I recommend giving Taking Back Sunday, a read 😀

After five years on the run, Sunday has finally settled into a seemingly normal life in Columbia, South Carolina. What her two best friends don’t know is that Sunday has a secret past. She is the Incarnate, a conduit of mystical energy transcendent of the mundane and the divine. For most of her life, she served under Bernadette, the most powerful witch in the Northwest. Her power is terrifying, and what she remembers of her past—and what she doesn’t—haunts her. In the year that she’s been attempting to be anything but the Incarnate, Sunday has fought her abilities tooth and nail, but it’s been worth it. When Sunday joins her friends’ coven for an innocent gathering, Sunday discovers a darkness hidden beneath the blanket of the coven’s magic and she is determined to find out who is behind it and what she has planned.
For the last four years, Cyrus has been the point man on the contract to recapture the Incarnate and deliver her to the Pastophori of Iset. A gifted tracker and a fearless werewolf, he harbors a wild, inexplicable passion for the Incarnate that has driven him to hunt her. He was one of the original captors that brought her to Bernadette when his obsession with her began. Having found her, Cyrus and his pack find themselves torn between two objectives: take her by force and deliver her to yet another group of fanatics, or help her uncover the traitor among her coven.
