Faith Galloway couldn't have a more perfect name. Her past has been a series of heartbreaking experiences that has made her doubt her own value.

Abel Barlow was her childhood sweetheart, the one person she could always trust to be in her corner, but he has changed over the years, and darkness has overcome his once loving personality.

Faith must choose to continue to support the one person she loves, or do the right thing and reach out for help to stop the darkness that has overtaken her onetime lo
Book Binge
I just did not like anything about this book. The blurb made me think I may not enjoy certain aspects of it but I thought I would give it a try. It was not for me. I thought it completely ridiculous how long the relationship between Abel and Faith was dragged out. To me, it just seems unrealistic that she would still love him after the horrific things he did. It made her seem weak and dependent and needy and I did not like that portrayal AT ALL. Also, I would say only about 15% of this book was ...more

A bound is formed, a love found. Faith wears a necklace of a crane which seems to be connected to a curse, Abel believes she has powers and helps her learn how to charm shifters. Unfortunately, Abel's shifter side begins to take over as he plots something using Faith's skills. She realizes she needs help to stop him so she meets ...more

i received ARC for my honest opinion, and i have to say that i was taken away it is such a good series. i love that you still mention the original characters in the first book by you don't dwell on them so much to where the book becomes about them and not the ones it should be about. you start with an Abel an alpha male coyote that was once man but now he has given in to his coyote. little by little he is becoming something totally different then what Faith fell in love with. poor Faith the only ...more

Finding love and family thru trials and tribulation
This is the second book of this series and yet it’s a self-contained story. But reading the first book does add character value to the storyline. Action with some bad guys with a love story in the mix along with finding unknown family. Well written and very enjoyable to read. There’s hope and love that make you want to believe in a better future and a storyline that keeps your interest right up till the end of the book. I was gifted a compliment

2.5 stars. Promising storyline with some choppy scenes and story shifts. This is the second book in the trilogy that follows the Alpha Bear shifter and council member Enoch. He is tasked by a mysterious someone above the council to get closer to the rogue coyote shifter Abel that caused so much damage in the previous book. Still wondering why he would be allowed free much less live... He is also attracted to Abel's girlfriend and witch Faith, his fated mate of course.

Having read the first book in this trilogy and not really getting into it, I am glad that I read this one. I liked learning about Faith, a character that isn't 100% good, either wittingly or unwittingly for the sake of love. The inner strength she found in order to fix what she had caused and to stop her first love very well written. I look forward to reading more from this author.

The Crane Curse #1 was what started me reading Liliana's books. This books is just as great as the first one. There are not many love scenes but, that's because the character in the book is at a cross roads in her life. This is a full length book. I also can't wait to finish reading book three!

This is a quick interesting story about a young woman who grew up in an orphanage. She kept waiting for her mother but she never came to get her. This is about the people and situations she allowed to influence her life. Entertaining read, enjoy I did.

The story was decent and solid. It was a different take on a feral shifter. But....when I read a paranormal romance, it would be nice if there was some. There is one sex scene and that was only 2paragraphs! Boy, I was disappointed :(

Shelves: novella-short
This novella was part of a box set (since I've already read a few of the books as stand-alones, I will rate each of the books separately also). Very hard time finishing this one. Couldn't engage with the characters or the storyline. Seemed to jump around a bit, and parts weren't very detailed.

What a mess

What an incredible mess. This book jumps time periods and point of view so much, with no transition besides some headers saying ten/ 15 years ago. So bad I checked for updates thinking the editing was bad. Just horrible would return if I could.
