I’m not really sure how to describe this book.
It definitely doesn’t fit with the blurb.
Basically Tierney’s got a secret. A destiny. And some fated boinking partners.
I’m not really sure on the rest.
I also need to get this out of the way, I didn’t hate this book. But I didn’t love it either. I read this back before I DNFed as easily as I do now. Which is probably the only thing saving this from a one star.
It starts slowly. Really slowly. Introducing us to the history, mythology, and characters of the story. Often reintroducing the same concepts when we get different points of view. There’s too much infodump.
Also this book needs a slew of content warnings. There is rape, torture, and murder. There’s self-hatred and self-harm. This is not a light paranormal romance. In fact, it feels a lot more YA to me just with explicit sex than true shifter romance.
I did like the characters. Especially Jax. He has just the right amount of pathos without being a total asshole.
I also found the mythology interesting… more interesting than the story to be sure.
But ultimately this book didn’t interest me enough to get the second book.
