- This book is paranormal romance. If you like shapeshifters and romance, this could be right up your alley. There's plenty of "devouring" kisses and a constant simmer of sexual tension (which I felt was overplayed, but again, I think that's why I don't usually read romance). I also get frustrated by the flip-flopping of the romantic couple. After a couple of "yes, let's be together" and "no, this won't work after all" cycles, it starts to feel contrived for me. If you don't like those romance book cycles, watch out. This book is full of them. I didn't like that part. Grrr, argh.
- This book has fantastic world-building. I really really really enjoyed the shapeshifter society that Rachel created, and the complexity of mixing the Greek pantheon (Zeus, Hera, Ares, sirens, etc) with the Egyptian myths (Ra, Osiris, Bastet, etc). Mixing gods and different forms of magic and powers, creating rules for how different creatures interact and how dominance flows across mixed races was fascinating. Honestly, if I keep reading the series this will be a major reason why. This and my next point...
- Characters. I'm a sucker for interesting characters, especially ones that are fighting against their own natures and reaching for true love or something noble like saving their people or their families. While I'm not a fan of the romance tropes, I really enjoyed the characters and their quirks. Besides the main love interests, David and Meg, there were so many other characters to root for and to hope they found love or resolved their inner conflicts.
This book gets 3 stars because overall that's where it landed for me (and I'm not dinging it for the romance part that I didn't like, because a romance book is supposed to have those things). To put it in perspective, 3 stars on Goodreads is "I liked it" and 4 stars is "I really liked it". If there was a bit more polish in the writing itself, it would be 4 stars.
Bottom line: I liked it, and I hope to see great things as Rachel continues writing and putting out more books.
I wasn’t too keen on the emotional see-saw crap that went on between some of the characters, but I guess that sort of thing is expected with romances for the most part. One minute David is going on about how much he wants Megan then going all emo and agonizing over about how he can never be with her. I think she was the only one who was sure 95% of the time, there was a small part where she was all “WTF not doing that!” but she got over it quick.
The alpha for the shifters, and his wife, kinda drove me bonkers with how they perceived stuff. I personally wanted to smack them both a few times for how they decided to view what was going on. But, they stayed true to the habits of their species, or something like that, I didn’t like it, but I got it.
When I read that the main character was made to wear skinny jeans I kinda, well, sorta, well I did lose respect for him. I *totally* don’t get that fashion fad and don’t find it appealing at all. It made me feel really old and out of touch, lol. I don’t like wearing them myself, I just this year got a pair that I will wear now, but I’m female. If maybe when he got his mind back the first thing he did was look for a pair of decent pants I would’ve thought differently….
In regards to the ending ... I wasn't too keen on how Owen acted and I hope that it is resolved quickly in the next book. I look forward to reading it when I get a hold of it. I really want to see how the sirens get on now and what happens with Ares and Berenice....
