Blurb: Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance…
It’s bad enough feeling different among the human crowd, but feeling different among wolves?
No one said returning to her pack would be easy, especially after ten years without them, but seventeen year old Caia Ribeiro is unprepared for the realities of the transition. Raised in a world where kids aren’t scared by bedtime tales of the bogeyman but by the real life threat of enemy supernaturals who might come creeping into their community to kill them in their sleep, Caia is used to the darkness; she’s used to the mystery and the intrigue of the ancient underworld war she’s bound to by chance of birth. What she’s having trouble with are pack members treating her with wary suspicion, the Elders tucking secrets behind their backs out of her sightline, and her young Alpha, Lucien, distracting her, with a dangerous attraction, from her decision to uncover the truth.
But as the saying goes ‘the truth will out’ and when it does, Caia will only have so long to prepare herself before the war comes pounding on their door threatening to destroy the safe, secret lives of the wolves… and the girl they protect.
YA Paranormal Romance recommended for ages 16 and up.
I don’t like any of the covers. I think they don’t really have any relevance to the story. And I disagree with the age rating but that is just me.
Soooooo, this book really took me for a ride! I thoroughly enjoyed it! The only thing I had a hard time with was ALL the back story. My goodness another book could have been written for all the information I had to learn. Why do authors do that? ::shrugs::
Lucien was a typical alpha male. I admit to having a weakness for the shifter variety. He came off as very solid and approachable to me. Not necessarily the traits I’ve come to associate with alpha’s. I really like how their romance blossomed naturally and slowly. But, bad Lucien for keeping secrets, and not just like minor ones, but MAJOR ones. If it was me, I would have dumped your ass with no looking back. But I’m a cold hearted SOB.
Caia was a bit harder to read. Having only known isolation her whole life I could really feel her apprehension with being thrust into this new world. She handled it very well I think. Not really giving into what people thought of her. She never caved or backed down from a challenge. And although she had a hard time fitting in initially, she didn’t let that stop her from doing what she knew to be right. She risked others wrath to make sure people knew where she stood. I liked that about her character
There was heaps of political intrigue and espionage. I actually really love that in my fantasy books, it gives it a deeper layer to sink into. More meat for the story ya know? At any rate, I’m really looking forward to the second one.
