Elise was transparent from the beginning: she had personality and lots of it. It worked well, and stayed consistent in this story. I haven't read much of modern day books with witches, and this didn't totally disappoint in that regard. There is strong language, and some sex (although not much), so if that's a turn off for you, you may not click with Elise's personality.
As far as the paranormal aspect, it involves werewolves, vampires and witches. I'm interested in witchcraft, but not vamps or werewolves. Fortunately, Young doesn't go into a lot of detail regarding the vamps and werewolves, which made it bearable for me. They were there, but they weren't sucking blood like crazy, so I didn't mind them.
Overall, it was an easy read with a strong magic system. If she had anything going for her, Young seemed to really know how the magic worked, and she kept that consistent. It was interesting to read about the spells they'd cast, the way they used their magic, etc. I liked this aspect, and it made me want to keep reading to see how Young would introduce different things.
My biggest issues come from the characters and their relationships. It felt like it went from love triangle, to square, and back to a different triangle. By the end, I still didn't have a good understand of what her relationship with Van was. I clearly understood that they weren't committed, but why was he so annoyingly possessive and protective then? Mona, a sweet little girl, was good in herself, but I didn't really understand her purpose.Read more ›
That being said, it did flow well. I kept reading waiting to see what craziness would happen next. It was constant, but overall, little changed. I think you could probably skip this book, jump onto to book 2 and miss out on very little.
When starting this book, I noticed it was book 1 in the series, but I failed to note it was spinoff from another series, so perhaps had I read original series, this would have been a 5 star read for me like it was to so many others. Just for me personally, jumping into this book left much to be desired. I will not be continuing this series, or recommending this to others. But for a freebie, it wasn’t bad.
I am a huge fan of the Nephilim Warrior series and I so wanted to love this spin off. I don't hate it, but I was not as excited as I wanted to be after I finished it.
I understand that this is the first book in the series, but I felt like there was too much going on and that nothing was resolved. I would have liked to have had closure on at least one thing before three more were added. I know you want to keep readers excited and wanting more but I am not going to remember what all was going on - it was just too much.
I would have also liked a little more story about Elise and Garrett. I found myself wondering more and more about him throughout the book. I am sure there could have been some great back stories. I guess I just felt like he needed a little more love (other than what he got in the tower - WOW-ZER!).
I am looking forward to the next book - hopefully it will give some closure to a few things and expand on Mona as well.
Very confusing. Anti climatic and left reader hanging at the end.
