Sebastian was turned into a vampire on his eighteenth birthday by his mother, whom he thought had died ten years earlier. His mother teaches him how to live amongst humans without spilling human blood. Almost two centuries later, his mother is killed and he blames humans. After a year of brutally killing humans to exact vengeance, he comes upon the young child of a woman he just killed. He can't bring himself to hurt the girl, so he names her Hanna after his mother, and finds a family to raise her. He anonymously provides for her, making sure her new parents have all the money they need to ensure she has a good life. Sebastian disappears from Hanna's life to better himself for all the killings he has committed. Although Hanna is out of his life, Sebastian can't get her out of his head, and believes his love for her is like a father. He reappears in her life seventeen years later to see how she is faring, only to see that Hanna has grown into a beautiful woman. He falls in love with her all over again, but this time as a lover. He plans an "accidental" meeting, which does not go well. Before Sebastian leaves Hanna once again, he learns that vampires and wolves are after her. Now it is up to Sebastian to secretly guard Hanna's life.
Sebastian: The life of Sebastian and Hanna Greene is a paranormal romance, and one of the best Romance novels out ther for all lovers of romance books.

As a long-time fan of the vampire genre, my taste has become a little jaded on the paranormal front . This means I often bypass books in this genre, simple because it seems like so many are either poorly done retreads or so ridiculous that I can't maintain any interest.
SEBASTIAN might have just changed my mind about all that. This book is deep and rich and thoroughly satisfying. You can read other reviews for the basic plot about the unusual beginnings of the love between Sebastian and Hanna, but what I'd like to focus on is just how well Ms. Johnson brought this story to life. This is a complex story with many-faceted characters (not just the leads, but also "supporting" characters you might along the way).
I really, really like the way she developed the story line about Sebastian sparing baby Hanna and then loving her as an adult. To me, this was far better done than the semi-icky attraction between Jacob and Renesmme. in BREAKING DAWN. Despite the vast differences in age and experience, Sebastian and Hanna's attraction feels like that of equals, and this is a credit to what a great job Ms. Johnson has done in creating Hanna as such a strong female lead. In the end, they're "equals" in the most important way of all: they both have an equal desire and need for each other, two halves that crave being completed. Fantastic, unexpected chemistry!
A final word that's slightly off-topic to the book. Take a moment to read Ms. Johnson's profile. This is an author who dearly loves her craft, and for burgeoning authors...read her advice about how to write a novel. These are hard-won pearls of wisdom. I looked for other works, but I believe this is Ms. Johnson's debut work (unless there are other pen names). I sincerely hope she'll produce more books because Amazon needs high-quality novels like this to shine against the sea of dreck that seems to be on the rise.
Great job, Ms. Johnson. I thoroughly enjoyed your work, and I look forward to reading more of it!

He lifted his hands to wipe the tears, and as his hands moved from her cheek to the corner of her lips, he longed to kiss her.
Hanna could tell what was on his mind and for a mad second, she also wanted to kiss him; she wanted to understand why she was suddenly attracted to him. For a second they stared at each other and then their lips met and moved against each other with want. The kiss was all that Hector had dreamed that it would be; he felt alive; with his eyes closed, his head was spinning with desire, and he pulled her closer to him as if his life depended on it.
For Hanna, it was nice; at first it made her stop hurting inside, but something felt wrong and different in her head; it was not like she had felt with Sebastian; then the thought of Sebastian jolted her brain and she pulled away at once.
While Hanna and Sebastian embark on dealing with the pain of their separation from each other, Hanna continues to gain more enemies all hungry for her powers. With all the wars raging, Sebastian finds it hard to walk away even though Hanna made it clear she didn’t need him. But later, Hanna discovers a revelation about someone, news that may help heal their sufferings but would it be enough or is it too little too late for their love …

I was excited to hear of this book's release because I thoroughly enjoyed book one. Get ready, because two is even better than the first!
The author picks up where she left off in book one, with Hanna learning that Sebastian isn't quite the hero she thought...or is he?
With a big piece of new info, she's ready to make amends - finally, I was dying! - but along the way, we meet new characters and learn more about the old ones.
I enjoyed the character development and backstory in this one. There was a lot of well-placed tension and build-up, which I enjoyed.
Just as she did in book one, Elizabeth spins a tale of vampires, violence, drama, and love into a web of excitement.
I loved the epic battle at the end, and I enjoyed connecting with all of the characters even more after reading book one.
Parts of this book were so exciting, I had to go grab some snacks.
Elizabeth's writing is smooth and concise; this was a fast read but one I wasn't read to finish because....there's still more to the story! So I know what that means. A book 3!!! But I did feel satisfied at the end. It was such a good continuation of the story.
I'm truly looking forward to what comes next!

Sebastian's eyes close as he tries to welcome the inevitable, but then she speaks again and this time, she calls him "S." In his weakened state, excitement surges through him; Sebastian wonders if he is hallucinating again. He knows troubled minds conceive desperate ideas that bring about all sorts of imaginations, and he is sure that he is hearing things that aren't real. "S, can you hear me?" Hanna pleads.
Mason Benedict continues his quest to resurrect his wife, Annemarie, and to gain the gift of light that enables vampires to exist in daylight and walk under the sun. His fame grows and many vampires join his army at the prospect of becoming day walkers. For this to happen, Hanna's blood and powers must be siphoned. Sebastian and Hanna must be found; imminent war is brewing. Hanna finds that she must also defend against the malicious Hilda Denali of the wolf tribe. Hilda blames Hanna for the curse on her tribe; her mission is simply to kill Hanna and cleans the wolf curse. Although Sebastian and Hanna are united again, there is a third wheel in their union, Hector, who has decided that Sebastian must die, but will his plans work? Sebastian and Hanna must decide whether to fight for their freedom or to run.

I just finished the third book in the Sebastian series by Elizabeth Johnson entitled Sebastian 3: Conquest of Power. I found it to be every bit as compelling as Book 1, The Life of Sebastian and Hanna Greene, and Book 2, Dark Times Arising. I will add the same proviso in this book review as I did for the previous two which is that the vampire genre is hardly my favorite. However, there is something about the way that Ms. Johnson forms her characters and constructs her story arc that just draws me in.
The center of this book is again the relationship between the unique vampire Sebastian, with his wonderful strength and skills, and his partner, a very special lady named Hanna Greene. Theirs is a love story with a tumultuous intensity and one that is buffeted by many forces, so much so that they remained apart for three years.
Many of the same characters from Books 1 and 2 re-emerge in this sequel including Hanna’s mother Hope; a set of vampire brothers named Nicholas, Henry, and Thomas; Hilda Denali, leader of the wolf tribe; Mason Benedict, the oldest and most powerful vampire of them all; and his witch wife Annemarie. However, some have perished as this story begins such as the supremely villainous Anton and Zachary from a different trio of brothers who succumbed in battle in Book 2. This leaves only the treacherous brother Hector, who plays a major role in this story.
Mason Benedict is the evil power center in this book. He wants for himself and for his vampires something Sebastian already has, the ability to walk in the sun. Some of the holes and misunderstandings between Sebastian and Hanna in the previous two books are filled in when we learn of the manipulations of Mason.
Sebastian and Hanna’s relationship is constantly tested as the battle lines are drawn in this tale. Yet, theirs is a love so powerful that Hanna observes that if they die it’s ok, for they experienced a level of love that few in this lifetime receive. I found myself envious reading about them. Yet, at the same time, they cannot consummate their relationship for reasons which you will learn when you read the book.
Everything builds to the final climactic battle, one of the best I have ever read. Sebastian and Hanna, the massive vampire army of Mason Benedict, and Hilda Denali and her wolf tribe go to war at a level that reminded me of Lord of the Rings.
At the risk of sounding promotional, I strongly recommend that you read these three books sequentially. One could pop in and still enjoy Conquest of Power, but I do believe you will really gain a greater appreciation of the story arc if you read all three. Elizabeth Johnson is a great storyteller!
