Elosia has enough to worry about with vampires missing from her coven and a traitor somewhere in her midst. The last thing she needs to add to her plate is a large shifter wolf with his possessive eyes on her. And the feelings he's causing her to have just by being close to her are distracting. But Elosia needs the wolf pack's help and having this man as her new bodyguard is a price she'll have to pay.
Xefren has found his mate. He has no doubt that the rigid vampire leader is destined to be his. Convincing her of this fact is a challenge he's ready for and the wolf inside him won't settle until she accepts their fate. However, it's hard to focus on wooing his woman when there are suspicious vampires lurking and a much larger scheme underway. He'll have to keep Elosia safe long enough to win her heart.
Time to confess that I haven't read the first book of this series. The blurb piqued my interest so much that I must have missed the last line that mentions this not being a standalone. That's only partly true, though. This is one of those series where each couple gets their own book but participate in an overall story arc that spans the entire series.
That means stuff happened in the first book that is pretty darn important to have known when this book started. I've done this to myself before so I realized in the very first chapter that I had made an oopsie. There were references to events that I didn't understand and a whole lot of characters introduced at once.
After a few chapters, I started to get the hang of the story. There were still a few scenes that I had to re-read to make sure I understood what was happening. This is one of those stories you really need to pay close attention to when reading. Clues are dropped here and there and I probably missed some because I definitely didn't see at least one of the twists coming. I was kept on my toes throughout the book and I'm perfectly fine with that.
Aside from the complex plot, the romance is smoking hot. The bickering between our couple in the beginning was highly entertaining and I was pleasantly surprised to see it continue all the way until the last page. This pair has chemistry in spades and the bedroom scenes? Let's just say I'm glad I waited until the kids went to bed to start reading this book.
A paranormal story filled with shifters, vamps, witches, and fated mates. Four suns!
Full review on Up 'Til Dawn Book Blog
This book fully immerses you into the world of vampires and wolves. Vampires have consorts and wolves have mates. What happens when those worlds collide and a wolf feels a mate bond with an unwilling vampire who slowly starts realizing he's her consort? What happens while this is going on between a vampire and a wolf and vampires are being kidnapped and hybrid wolves are being created? You have it all in this book. We even get a peek at witches.
We were introduced to a mystery in this book and while we got part of the puzzle, we didn't get everything resolved at the end. We know someone is doing bad things to vampires and wolves, but even at the end of the book, I only had a little piece of why this was being done and only a small part of the who.
I'm sure this will carry on to previous books as the epilogue set the scene for the next book and I'm interested to see where this series goes
