Sorry guys, I have had so much college work and results that I have slowed on my reviews but these are the books that I was meaning to review last week…
This is another book I got off the Kindle recommendations and it didn’t disappoint. I have to stay I’m a not a fan of werewolf novel of the Paranormal, I’m more of a vamp girl to be honest. The synopsis compelled me to read the book…
Adria Dawson is just an ordinary teenager who just wants to graduate from school and move away from her social life. She lives with her mum and Jeff, a beater, she can’t tolerate it anymore, nor can her sister. Like most evenings, they sneak out of the house to get away from the arguments, when they encounter something dark, bloody, and frightening…a werewolf. Alex, her sister never recovered from that night, the following day, they were taken to Hallowell, Maine to live with their Uncle. Maine isn’t so bad… Adria goes to school and tries to start a new circle of friends, but they have their own secrets. When some her friends and residents of the Maine start coming down with unexplainable illnesses or start going missing, she becomes curious and more and more curious about a certain household , The Mayfair’s, more specifically Issac Mayfair. Adria learns the beginning of an unspeakable world, that night with her sister. Adria’s life is destined to change; her place in this world will change forever.
Adria has had a troubled childhood, living with a beater and not having much of a social life. Her sister Alex takes care of her the most and both of them want to get of this house and move. But when her sister never recovers from that night in the alley, Adria has trouble finding the connecting with her sister, she feels that she is no longer present. Adria can’t help but wanting to find out what has happened to her sister and that when some curious characters coming snooping into her life. First, William and Ashe, both brothers who are very large and intimidating residents who feel they can hurt or rule this city, but they have their rivals. Adria know that they have taken her sister and she wants her back. Second, the Mayfair’s a populated family who has more secrets to hide than share, Adria feels more a connection with Issac, a very dark, handsome (as always) guy that shows know emotion when he is around her. Adria didn’t realise that she would fall in love with him. However in their relationship, Love is the curse.
Issac Mayfair is one of the older brothers in the family; his is the dark, handsome guy who falls for the out-of-town girl. (Awww I wish that was me, doesn’t everyone?!) When one of his pack become friends with Adria, he feels different yet connected to someone he never dreamed of getting to know. He feels that he needs to protect her from everything that lurks in the night. At first, Issac is one of those guys you could just scream at for being so distant with Adrai, when we as a reader clearly knows what he really feels. When they do get together, wow, they are just so perfect, and to be honest all I can say is ‘AWW’.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. At times it could be a bit slow, but that was rewarded the love and action of Issac and Adria of the novel. I would recommend it if you enjoyed my review or if you have read the book to Blood Warrior.
