This is an exceptional book. It's a slow-burn Reverse Harem. It's well-written with such depth and perfectly developed, complex characters. Briar may be fragile on the outside, but the girl is titanium on the inside. She's brilliant, kind, and accepting. She's courageous, giving, and special in ways I can't even explain. Each one of the brothers is hurt. They have lived for hundreds, for thousands of years. Each has their own history. They were created by pure evil, abused, and did horrible things during their early years. They have lived with guilt and shame; they have loved and lost. They turned away from each other in pain and suffered. Now Briar is giving them another chance at happiness, another chance at a family. But it won't be easy to reach a happily ever after. The threat may be known to them, however only partially. And knowing who your enemy doesn't mean that you can stop them. Lives are in danger and death may not be the worst fate. However, Briar has brought hope, a reason to live, to fight. The brothers will do everything they can to keep her safe and make their family whole once again. I loved this one, look forward to the next. I will be pre-ordering book 2 as soon as it's up for sale!
This book follows the main character, Briar, who is very intellectually smart. However, she also has her own troubles in the fact that she has EPP and is allergic to the sun. I feel that Ripley created a very interesting character in Briar. I have never seen a character even remotely like her before. I love that she is not a dumb character, but she also cannot do everything herself. She has strengths and weaknesses and I love her even more for them.
One thing I actually loved even more than Briar were the guys. (Yes, this book is a reverse harem book and so Briar has multiple guys she is interested in and them in her.) I loved the dynamic of these men. I feel that too often in RH books, the main focus is the main character's relationship with the guys; however, while this is definitely still happening, Ripley also gives us real, tangible relationships between each guy. I don't mean that they are romantic relationships, but family and friendship-type relationships. I believe this story so much more because we get to learn about everyone in it.
Because this book is a paranormal romance (one of my favorites), I loved the fact that every other aspect of the characters and relationships felt more rooted in reality.
I love Ripley's Searchers Series, if you're looking for something else by her to read, but I think this one might be tied with it for my favorite, and it's the strongest storytelling she has done to date.
Let's see: I love reverse harem, I love vampires, I have historically loved most things written by Ripley Proserpina. Check, check and check! I was beyond ecstatic to read this book and it did not disappoint! More things I love include when there are a group of men who are like brothers, and have all the emotions and struggles relationships that close produce. We have that here, and the brothers are estranged to start - their interactions and history are one of the high points of the book, and I look forward to it as the series progresses, while also wishing there was more of it. All four of the heroes are sexy and delicious and I like their reluctance to get involved with the heroine in any way. Even though it's difficult to have a favorite in a reverse harem (and we don't have to!) I so far am slightly favoring Hudson (Professor Hotson!) I love a slow burn romance, and I would personally classify this as as one, though still not as slow as some I have read. In fact, in certain ways, I would have preferred for even slower in terms of increasing the aforementioned reluctance. The heroine has a very clear and scary vulnerability, yet her true strength shines in her determination to live a normal life, in all of her interactions, and how she faces all issues head-on, yet intelligently. This is a fantastic series starter, and I can't wait to see what's next.
