Product Description

"Passionate paranormal romance ..."

Frankie's cousin wants her to do three things this year ...

1. Lose her inhibitions
2. Do something spectacularly stupid
3. Fall madly in love

Travelling was Frankie's life. As the daughter of a big-name evangelist, she's been able to feed her hunger for new sights throughout most of her teenage years. Then a hushed-up scandal gets her thrown off the tour circuit and stuck at her uncle's house in the town of Augur's Well.

Forced to repeat her failed senior year, it looks like a dismal existence for Frankie--until she's invited to the bizarre meeting place of four mismatched people ... and falls hard for the fascinating, secretive Cain Aleister.

Furtive meetings in an underground chamber ... Latin words carved into a stone wall ... intense desire ... and a secret so elusive she'll do almost anything to bust it open. Until now, Frankie never believed in grand passions--but that's not the only one of her beliefs about to implode right before her eyes.

Looks like Frankie's going to score three for three.

Hey, reader, come for a ride?
DOWNFALL, by S.D. Wasley, begins in the desperate dark of consequences, a rash decision that begs not only resolution but explaining. For those who accompany Frankie, the camera fades back in from the black to reveal the events leading up to her fateful ride. It’s a journey wrapped in several layers of secrets—not only her own, but also those of the people closest to her.
And so we meet Francesca—but that’s “Frankie,” to us, at least if we want to be her friend. She’s a bit of a disappointment to her father. The end of school did not go well for her, and she finds herself booted from his ongoing “tour” (promoting books that promise spiritual power to those seeking meaning or purpose in their lives), exiled back to her uncle’s house, and surrounded again by friends and acquaintances that belong to a past she had once thought she’d outgrown. Her mission: fix her academic situation, and prepare herself for college—even as she finds her place on her father’s tour supplanted by a trophy girlfriend who can be, rather generously, described as incompetent.
And yet, as the reader meets those people who populate Frankie’s exile, we can’t help but be more than a little happy for her, even as she doubts herself. The cast is both colorful and entertaining, and also—very typical in Wasley’s body of work—tinged with mystery. Foremost among these characters are her “hot former friend” Jude (who totally not over her), and the members of the “club” he regularly meets at Gaunt House … always at night, always descending into its recesses to hold their meetings in a most clandestine manner.
Enter “Cain,” the mysterious club leader with the striking, unforgettable face.

I was fortunate enough to have SD Wasley ask me to contribute some illustrations to DOWNFALL and of course I jumped at the chance.
One of the benefits of this is that I was lucky enough to read this excellent story in detail before it was available to everyone.
The story in DOWNFALL is thought provoking and interesting with characters that are easy to identify with and like but complex enough to wonder what is really going on with them all. They all seem to have their little mysteries and I can’t wait to find out more about them. Who are they and maybe even a bigger question WHY are they?
The story is both a mystery thriller and a paranormal romance that is at once quite grounded in the real world but with enough hints to push things into the ethereal.
I recommend this book to those that like their romance with some meat and their paranormal with a twist of mystery.

This is such a beautifully written book with perfectly crafted sentences that flow without conscious thought. From the very first chapter I was swept into Frankie's story. To me, she felt like a real person with both strengths and weaknesses. There were times when I admired her guts and determination, as well as times when she made mistakes which added to her vulnerability and ultimately gave her real dimension. I found her easy to identify with and an enjoyable character to read.

Throughout her journey she meets a whole range of new characters and while some of them receive less screen time than others, I was impressed by the depth of characterisation provided in a short period.

The plot also progressed nicely with twists and turns I truly didn't anticipate. Around the final quarter, I thought, Oh, I know what's going to happen, but I was actually completely wrong. The end left me disappointed it was over but satisfied with the conclusion and I'm looking forward to reading book two!

I love Ms Wasley's haunting style. Given the mystical nature of this paranormal romance, it fits the story perfectly.
The underground chamber in a ruined house sounds like one of those places you see in your childhood that haunts your dreams forever - and yet this one houses secrets I'd never expected.
When Frankie falls in love, but there's far more at stake than her untouched heart. Oh, it's so hard not to give spoilers for this book, but I'll do my best to resist!
From an explosive beginning, through a well-paced unveiling of characters and secrets, all the way up to...whose downfall? You'll have to read it to find out ;)

Five stars.

HASH(0xa2ac70b4) out of 5 stars Beautifully written, captivating book Jan. 5 2016

I loved SD Wasley's YA books and was excited to read her new NA series. She did not disappoint!
One thing I look for in books is original, unpredictable storylines because I like a book that pulls me in from the first page and doesn't let me go. I often put books down after a few pages because I'm not hooked or because I feel I'm reading the same old story. Downfall hooked me. You won't be able to predict what's happening (I tried and failed!) and you'll be captivated by the story unfolding in front of you. The writing is beautiful, the author definitely has a talent for crafting words to draw the reader into the mysterious world she creates. Her characters have personalities and flaws, and I loved watching Frankie's character grow. In fact, SD Wasley has a talent for fleshing out all of her characters - the minor characters are also well-rounded. The group with their mysterious powers and connections were all individuals. There's no cliffhanger here but I can't wait to find out what's in store for this amazing set of characters in the next book. 5 star recommended read!

HASH(0xa2ac77bc) out of 5 stars Epic romance and adventure! Jan. 8 2016
By Deanna Dee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
S.D. Wasley’s Downfall is my first new adult paranormal read, and I found it to be quite good. For anyone who’s read Wasley’s YA series (Seventh), the situation of Downfall starts as a familiar one. A group of young people with supernatural gifts are brought together for an unknown purpose. I had a few Seventh moments while reading Downfall, but upon completion, the two are very different. This is not a rehash of Wasley’s first series at all.

The story focuses around Frankie, a girl who’s been “exiled” from her father’s book touring circuit in order to finish high school. She’s supposed to be putting her efforts toward classes, but a group of interesting people, headed by the mysterious and gorgeous Cain, grab her attentions with a vicious hold and won’t let go. Practically addicted to the group and her emotions for Cain, Frankie stops at nothing to find her place among this group, even if that place is nowhere at all.

Wasley brings to life a grand love and a mystery worth solving. I don’t usually go for the I-can’t-breathe-without-you romance, and I found myself wanting to throttle Frankie a few times for her poor decision making. This story offered me a twist, though, and by the end, I liked Frankie just fine. Cain also held some surprises for me, and the story itself didn’t answer all my questions. There’s no cliffhanger, but I’m left wondering about a few things that I’m hoping to learn more about in book two.

My favorite part of this book is the group. They remind me a bit of the kids in the Seventh, especially the way they discuss their “powers.” I like that this group doesn’t understand what they are or what they do. I like that they’re relying on one another to figure it out, and I like the potential I see in them to grow into something truly spectacular. Wasley hints at religious reasons for this group and then, just as quickly, retracts those hints. I spent the book riding along with the characters trying to figure them out, and that made for an excellent reading experience.

HASH(0xa2ac7ab0) out of 5 stars Fantastic New Adult Romance!!! Jan. 6 2016
By Sasha Hibbs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Downfall by Ms. Wasley was an incredible debut into the world of New Adult Romance. It took me no time to breeze through Downfall. From the very beginning clear until the end, Ms. Wasley kept the pace fast and the reader on the edge of their seat.

The cover is delicious and I LOVED the chapter titles... they set the feel for what each chapter had in store.

The story begins with our main female protagonist, Frankie. The prologue certainly had me terrified but instantly drew me in... I had to discover how Frankie found herself in such a position. We then go back to the beginning and find out that Frankie (the daughter of an evangelist) is pretty much kicked off her fathers book tour. Formally she was pretty much his marketing manager and did her job well. Where the conflict comes in at is that Frankie is herself not to blame for getting kicked off the tour and dumped at her uncles house, but it is actually her sister, Vanessa's, fault. And Frankie resents her for it. It was interesting to see the dynamics in these two sisters relationship. Sisters are sisters. You fight, grow, overcome and fight again... but you always love each other and the author did a wonderful job building the relationship here.

So Frankie is living with her uncle and her cousin (who was one of my favorite characters) Albion. I loved him. He was so large and full of life. I loved how Albion always comforted her and gave wonderful advice... he is the cousin everyone needs in their life.

Albion sets the stage for Frankie to get reacquainted with Jude... a guy who is totally into Frankie. The problem with this entire scenario is that Frankie is somewhat attracted to Jude until she meets Cain.

Cain is the leader, so to speak, of this club that meets at Gaunt House. This part was super mysterious. I was on the edge of my seat reading, needing to find out who Cain is, what he's capable of, the tension that built between him and Frankie.... it was awesome!!!!!

I will not include any spoilers, but the budding relationship between Cain and Frankie was spectacular. I loved the mystery and supernatural feel to it.

Another element that I need to comment on was the descriptive detail... The writing was so vivid in Downfall that I felt as though I were there. This is truly a book that comes to life.

If you are a fan of New Adult Romance, snatch up Downfall now and look for more great things to come from Ms. Wasley!
