Jem has been having dreams that she is a werewolf and making an appearance in her dream world is Sean. While she has no clue what the dreams mean or who Sean is, they definitely make her curious and provided some escape from her boring life. Little does she know, but the dreams are from real events that took place in her other life.
This is my favorite quote from the book and it really captures the theme of the story:
"Fate and destiny to hand in hand. It is impossible to change our destiny. Only the path upon which we walk to reach our destination alters. If we should stray from that path, fate will take control and guide us in the right direction."
Jem is quite the character. I was either loving her or hating her. Half the time, she isn't listening and heeding the advice that is given to her, and she is way to compulsive, which of course lands her in trouble throughout most of the book. I will say though that by the end, Jem did become the strong, independent woman that I had hoped she would become.
Sean came across as overbearing at times, but I really tried to understand the situation he was in, so I gave him a pass just hoping that he was not going to be a repeat of Peter. Sean is over the top good looking, sexy, strong and well, he's a werewolf.Read more ›
Honestly, I was a bit leary when I realized Jem was already married when she meets her soul mate. Being a happily married girl, I would have a hard time accepting the idea of her leaving her husband for another man, but Belfield does a great job of making Peter, the husband in question, horrible enough that merits Jem leaving him with or without Sean in her life.
Jem really grows and develops as the novel progresses. The Holloway pack loves and nurtures Jem, allowing her to discover her true self. Their support allows these changes, which do occur rather quickly, to seem natural.
There's a couple of times when I found myself thinking, "wouldn't it have made more sense if Jem just...." I can't really call these story flaws as there's many times when I actually do do something that doesn't make the most sense.
I loved Jem and how her pack cherishes her. I liked Sean, but his character felt slightly flat to me. I plan on reading "Fated Encounter" which reads from Sean's point of view. I think that will help me connect more with Sean.
Overall great story of which I can't wait to read more.
I enjoyed the way that the chapters were divided into "Light" and "Dark"; the first being Jem's real life and the second being her werewolf dreams. The blurb gives you a pretty good idea of what this all means. Jem's dreaming about her past lives and eventually (as was bound to happen) they collide when she meets Sean. I also really liked Belfield's werewolf prophecy; it's complex, unique and I quickly found myself getting sucked in by her Holloway Pack universe. J.R's beautiful, descriptive writing style definitely played a huge role in my overall enjoyment of this novel as well. My only complaint is that more fat could have been trimmed from this story because it ran a little unnecessarily long.
Jem continued to rub me the wrong way right up until the very end, even after she'd accepted her new reality. Her naivety only seemed to escalate after all that unpleasantness with Peter.Read more ›
