Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be a thrilling story I could hardly put down from start to finish. The action scenes (especially the flashback story) are gripping and suspenseful, the scenes of Edwards family life at once humorous and surreal as the reader, together with Beth, tries to come to grips with a bewildering life in which Mom can make breakfast for the kids before they go off to play in the woods-- as wolves tracking a deer. The characters of the Edwards family are vivid and distinct, especially the irrepressible Lucy (my favorite) who practically leaps off the page every time she appears.
The villain, Markko, is menacing enough to cast his shadow over every scene, even the times when he seems far away and a lesser villain might recede, taking the suspense with him. But not Markko. His early appearances are filled with enough malevolence to never let the reader forget him, even in the most pleasant or humorous of the Edwards family scenes.
As for the main romance story -- as I said, I'm not a romance fan so I'll leave it to others to discuss in detail. I don't know what criteria real romance fans apply. I'll just say I enjoyed it as much as the rest of the book, and since I'm normally the guy who'd be put off by "mushy stuff" interrupting the action, that's an achievement.
I'll be looking forward to further books from this author (I hope the next one's about Lucy).
While I read this with the curiousity of seeing a book by someone I know, after reading it I would recommend this book to friends.
Ms. Alvarez does an excellent job with her characterization as well as her story line, and with so many paranormal romances out there, this one lends refreshing warewolf traits along with an edgy story line. Beth is believable and admirable, while Braden is loveable and alluring. This is a must read for all romance readers, especially paranormal fans.
The flashbacks were done superbly and didn't stall the drama, but added to it, piece by tension-filled piece. It's been a long time since I've read a paranormal romance that was this believable and balanced the good, the bad, and the ugly so well.
