This story, Selenium Night, is about the struggle within the Bloodlocke pack. Aidan Bloodlocke is not a blood relative to the Aristan people he called family. He had been adopted when he was a child but had been raised as family by his adoptive parents. Kiernan Bloodlocke however, never accepted Aidan as his brother. In time, he grew to resent Aidan and that resentment grew inexorably when Aidan beat Kiernan for position of Alpha of the pack. Kiernan vowed revenge and through unsavory connections with some Thesians he was able to take his revenge in the worst way possible.
Aidan was the Alpha of the pack but he was also one of the most affected by Kiernan’s betrayal. He vowed justice and went in search of Kiernan who was on the run. The trail led to a small town in Maine and it was there that Aidan had come to find Kiernan and drag him back to be judged by the pack for his crimes. While in town looking for Kiernan, Aidan happened upon a local bar where he was scenting that Kiernan had been recently. While peering into the window he saw that there was a brawl between two Thesians that was about to take place with a human woman in the mix. He didn’t want to help her necessarily but his conscience would not let him leave her to the wolves. Once inside the bar, Aidan realized that there was something about Maddie that called to him and he knew he needed to protect her.
Maddie Ardelle had recently moved to Bridgepoint to start a new life. She had left a bad situation behind and was trying to start over again. She had bought a local veterinary practice and although she was very busy and met many people every day, she did not really have any friends beyond her receptionist Greta. So, heeding her receptionist’s advice she decided to head out for a night of fun. Seeing the closest bar, she went in and ordered a drink, just looking to unwind. From the start, nothing went right and before she knew what was going on she was pinned between two hot headed males and about to become a casualty of male posturing.
Both Aidan and Maddie felt an attraction to each other and the draw was quite intoxicating for both of them. Aidan knew that it was a bad idea to get involved with a human but he couldn’t help himself. She offered him acceptance and that was a foreign yet intoxicating feeling and he wanted more of that. Unfortunately, Maddie did not know the truth about Aidan and the Aristans had a rule about interaction with humans, it was forbidden. Thesians take humans to bed and used them for their purposes but Aristans never did. In fact, they distanced themselves as far as possible from humans. For Aidan to even consider getting to know Maddie, it would be a mistake of grave proportions.
Not only was it a bad idea to get involved in a romance, Aidan’s brother was gathering up Thesians trying to build his own pack so that he could take revenge! As the hunt for Kiernan continued, Aidan found that he was going to have to go outside his comfort zone and learn to trust others. Something he had never been able to do easily. He would have to push all the boundaries and question age old traditions if he was going to be successful in his hunt. As the danger escalated, Aidan was going to have to make a choice between his love or his people, and he was torn!
I thoroughly enjoyed all the characters in Selenium Night. The conflict between the main characters was set up nicely and I liked the backstory with where these races of shifters came from. The shifters themselves were unique and I enjoyed that they had different levels of “shifting” that they could control. There were also several differences between the two species of shifters. Super cool! I kind of wished that the goddesses would have played a part throughout the story though. The romance between Maddie and Aidan was sweet, swoony, and packed with heat! Maddie was human but she was fierce in her own ways and that was just fantastic. Overall, this was a strong series starter and I am really looking forward to seeing where things go for both races. It was a great read!
This review is based on a complimentary book I received from Author, Kharma Kelley. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.
The characters are serious and funny at the same time. Aidan and Maddie fall for each other even though they are both reluctant in it.
After a brutal betrayal, Aidan is on a mission that could very well lead to his death. He faces even more betrayal in his journey. Maddie after finding out the truth is willing to fight for what she believes to be right. She joins Aidan in his fight even though she is not a shifter.
I really liked the whole of the story. I cried a little and laughed a little as I read. I was mad at times and wished I could fight with them. This story had action, laughter, drama, love and magic. I hope that as a reader of paranormal romance Ms. Kelley continues to write.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
The plot was a bit slower in the beginning with the development of several key characters, but once it picks up it is non-stop action. I did find it a bit disjointed at times with the switching of points of views, but the characters development and plot were fantastic. This book has plenty of romance, drama and action to hold my interest. I received this book as an ARC and voluntarily submit my honest review.
