I certainly like both Ethan and Miguel, especially how they met and came together. The mate thing is the usual but that has always been the "sacred theme" in shifter stories. The mate bond between a vampire and a wolf shifter is nothing new but it is still a nice touch here especially when they influenced one another in more ways than expected. I always have a thing for a pure alpha hunk and his little mate and here Miguel is not only alpha but also a "badass-alpha-vampire", who most of the time killed without remorse. Young Ethan could be a bit helpless at times but Ethan has courage when he chose to follow his heart, after living such a shelterd life with his pack. The story line could have been more thoroughly explored especially the hatred between vampires and wolf shifters. But the plot did keep me interested and I like that Miguel's coven was so different from the packs.
The country bumpkin way of speaking did not bother me as it was the writer's way to highlight the backwardness of the packs. I am also not bothered by the country bumpkin vesus proper English inconsistencies in the their speeches and thoughts. Maybe it was hard to believe that the packs were so ignorant of their surroundings. On the other hand if the packs felt themselves superior to both humans and vampires, they could just be blind to humans progress. Certainly the plot is not fool proof but both plot and main characters are enjoyable.
Ethan is a wolf shifter, unable to shift, sickly and small. He has accepted he will not live out the year so joins some young pack mates who are going into town to attack some bloodsuckers that have arrived recently. Ethan thinks dying while fighting the vampires will be a heroes death. Just as he is sure he is going to die the biggest and baddest of the vampires the shifters attacked stops Ethan's imminent death and Ethan has his first orgasm and shift, an odd occurrence considering the circumstances. He later returns to the scene to find the vampire Miguel and realizes they are True Mates.
I'm not sure if this is an alternate world created by the author and find that a little confusing. The towns mentioned don't exist but they appear to take place somewhere in Georgia. The story is actually a prequel to 'Wake Me Up Inside' and ends about 30 years before we meet Ethan and Miguel in that book.
There is a lot of drama here and danger. Shifters and Vampires are sworn enemies so the two being True Mates doesn't go well between the species. I did enjoy learning the differences and like the first book the author did not follow the usual tropes and introduced his own version of shifters and vampires.
I could give this book a strong four stars except for Ethan. He is a strongly written character and his emotions and reactions to the events taking place are what really bring the story to life. However, UGH! his language is a farce! I tried, really I tried very hard to keep reminding myself that he was dirt poor, raised on pack lands away from humans and the majority of this story took place about 50 years ago but the way Cardeno C. wrote Ethan's language would make Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn and Lennie Small correct him! Truly cringe worthy.
Its not that its a bad book, in fact its fairly decent in terms of shapeshifter books. However, after reading this book I want to say either the author didn't write the first book or didn't write this one. The writing style is just so different, and not that this books was terrible the prior book was just so well written this one was a HUGE let down.
It took me longer to read this one, simply because it bored me. I purchased this in the hopes of reading one so emotionally involving as the first of the series (though it is technically the sequel to this one) and what I got was almost your typical m/m shifter book out there today. There are so many of those that this one just fades in place of the outstanding ones that shine amongst the crowd.
Again its a decent read, and if you didn't read the first book read this one first. So that you can be pleasantly surprised with the sequel instead of disappointed in this one.
The two MCs lack much depth, and the side characters are very flat. About the only character that had much spark to it was Katie (Miguel's "niece"). The story follows the usual plot lines of meet/mate/love/something dangerous happens/happy ending. The author did do a fair job of allowing the characters to be versatile in bed and make it feel natural. There were a tad to many sex scenes, or maybe it was just that they felt mostly stock image. (cause I usually love my naughty scenes)
The cover of the book is pretty.
