* And most importantly her books aren't just one big sex fest. I HATE that other authors think describing sex repeatedly makes the book better. IT DOES NOT!! ANTICIPATION & LEAD UP do a lot for that part. :)
It’s purely a personal preference, but I prefer it when a writer creates a book that is so good that I want to read the next rather than contriving their ending as a cliffhanger. If an AU, characters, and plot are compelling enough, readers will want more.
In this case, there are problems with the AU, characters, and plot because the author is more invested in setting readers up for a series than writing a great book. As a result, nothing is explained terribly well. The only adult/parent figure, Luna’s father, Dick, is obviously being set up as the villain who murdered Griffin’s father, Killian’s family, and Sterlyn/Dove’s pack. Why? Presumably it will be explained at some point in the distant future.
As for Sterlyn, that name. Lol. It reminds me of MIBIII when J lies to K, saying that he was at Coney Island to meet his girlfriend Shtaren. There were elements to the book that were unintentionally funny which made for a jarring tonal problem contrasted with the graphically violent aspects to the story. For example, Sterlyn/Dove sees her entire pack killed in front of her and the next day she is disappointed the clothes she borrows from Killian’s dead sister’s wardrobe are not to her personal taste. I should think that she would have other things to worry about, but what do I know?

Overall I thought there was a lot of potential and I liked the basic, albeit unoriginal, ideas, but it ended up feeling rushed and contrived. I read the whole thing but I still have no idea about the lead characters personalities. We know some facts about Sterlyns life, and that she is going through some stuff right now, but otherwise, we have no idea about her faults or likes and dislikes (apart from clothing preferences.....come on!) . And the only difference between Killian and Griffin is that she feels a 'tug' towards one instead of the other.......and that's it! There is nothing to distinguish their characters from each other. We never get to know anything about their characters, except that they are both alpha-hoes. As such, the romance really falls flat. I love romance and tried hard to find it, but there wasn't any substantial interaction between the two characters at all. I was disappointed that this author seems to have fallen into the same pattern most authors post-Twilight have: flat, one dimensional characters who you can only tell apart by their names/gender/supernatural abilities.
As mentioned, I liked how it all began, but it feel into the same disappointing patterns as so many shifter novels do these days.
I just can't be bothered to read the next one. I don't even care about the cliff-hanger ending.
Such a shame as I enjoyed the first half!
Sterlyn/ Dove was to be the future Alpha of silver pack unfortunately disaster struck and sends Sterlyn barrelling down the river trying to survive.
Meeting Killian fills the loss of her family and Griffiths her fated mate. But even having two Alpha's in her corner doesn't keep her safe.
Great storyline with epic battles, heartfelt declaration of love and friendship, and found family.
Ends on a cliffhanger. Highly recommended
I felt like this book was just lacking in every department - it gave hints of things that could be great but they just weren't fully developed at all. The main lead was far too romanticised for my tastes - I really wanted some sort of reaction to the events in the initial chapter having nothing really made her seem out of touch with reality.
I might read the sequel if only to get some answers to the cliff-hanger but I won't be rushing for it anytime soon.
She soons finds happiness but, at what cost?
