Alexandra was forced to live in the human world, and while she adjusted, she never forgot how much better the world she was made into was. Her memories are hardly the only thing from her past that haunts her. Her nature and the power she masters will always cause trouble for her. A thing of power, as she'd described by others, Alexandra morphs through the story and grows.
Her infatuation with an angel is heart breaking, but it get hot fast when she starts dreaming of him and another man. In her dreams, the two invite her to join their carnal adventure and she's eager to do so. What I liked about this character is that she's not pining over the man she loves. Of course it's not easy, but she's not afraid of having friends with benefits and enjoying her sexuality.
The magical world Aimee portrayed is amazing and I can't wait to get more of it! It's basically a power structure, with different kinds of supernatural and magical being hanging on to their turf. It's all built around balance, and Alexandra and her kin somehow end up tipping that valuable balance. So start reading now, then join me in waiting for the next book in the series!
However, there were so many characters thrown at you that they were hard to track at times. There would be mentions of characters (“my lycan friend”, “the angel after who I wasn’t supposed to lust”) who hadn’t even been introduced yet coming out of nowhere. Or characters would be introduced that seemed important, but then never mentioned again. I don’t know if this is because they will become relevant in future books in the series, but I wasn’t a fan of the way it was handled, because it came across awkwardly in the story, confusing me, the reader.
The action was constant and exciting while the mystery behind what was going on was very intriguing as well. However, there were pacing issues throughout the story, and sometimes the events occurring didn’t add up or make sense to me. This book also didn’t focus on romance, though there were hints of it. At times, it felt like the author was trying to focus on romance, and then she would just change her mind. This also affected the pacing of the story and hurt it.
I think the biggest issue with the story is that it was the start of a series. The author was trying to introduce so many elements that will likely be addressed in future books. Because there was such an info dump with little explanation or resolution, it affected the quality of the story. However, while the story did have its flaws, it also set up an interesting series. The world the author created is fascinating and I can’t wait to learn more about it. The ending was also intriguing because while the immediate mystery throughout the book is solved, there is a greater overarching mystery that is revealed at the end of the book, as well as the mystery behind Alexandra’s future romantic partners. Because of this, I am eagerly looking forward to book 2 to see what happens next.
