with all the hype surrounding this book I just expected more. We spent more time in the MC's room where nothing happened than we did I the trials where all the action was. Each trial was also very repatative, with pretty much the same outcome and reaction after everyone. It just didn't grip my interest as much as it could have. I will not be following this story further

Just finished this book and I am speechless (which for me says a lot!)
I really enjoyed the first book of the series but the author took this to a whole new level!
Action packed, with so many twists and turns that I think I have ground my teeth into nubs

And that ending... Only a dark and twisted person (in a good way) could come up with such a premise

A must read!

A good fast paced story with plenty of romance and swoon worthy men! I dare you to try and pick just one...

With so many alpha males it would have been easy for the female lead to become dominated as in similar stories but the author created such a strong and take no sh!t Alpha Female that this would never happen

I'm jumping right in to the next of the series

There is a new Alpha Wolf in town, and she is about to change everything. Mena had all she wanted in life: a nice house, money, a successful husband who treated her like a queen. That was, until she found out her marriage was all a lie, and things she never thought could exist, did. Vampires are real. Werewolves are real. And Mena is not human anymore.

Of course I want to be like them. They're beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever. And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe. One terrible morning, Jude and her sisters see their parents murdered in front of them. The terrifying assassin abducts all three girls to the world of Faerie, where Jude is installed in the royal court but mocked and tormented by the Faerie royalty for being mortal.

I loved this story and I have to say, I'm team Rhyan all the way! There was just something that didn't sit right with Adam for me. but that's just my opinion.
it was exciting, interesting and very well written. I will definitely be downloading the next book in series.
My only fault is the narration, she sounded like the love child of keanu reeves and romy from romy and Michelle's high school reunion when she was speaking for the men in the book which took slightly away from the enjoyment of the romantic scenes

but all in all an excellent book
