3.5 stars!!

i actually won this book from the Goodreads giveaways and was so excited when i saw it in my mailbox. My roommate kept laughing at me because i was literally jumping up and down about the fact that it finally came in. and when i saw that lisa logue signed it, that just excited me even more and prompted about 5 more minutes of jumping. i'm a very expressive person. (thank you lisa!!)

anyways, i read it in one night because i could NOT put it down. i couldn't help myself from want

I read this book on bookrix and enjoyed it so much, that I purchased the kindle version AND the paperback. The cover of this book is amazing and that's NOTHING compared to the excellent writing of this indie author. The intrigue, tension and suspense of the relationships make for an awesome read! I cannot wait for book 2! Thank you for the entertainment and kudos, Lisa! :)

I absolutely loved this book. The whole series is a great adventure. I am amazed how Lisa can make fantasy characters seem more real than some people I know. I can't wait for more!

I went into reading this story with the previously published reviews in mind. I always look at reviews before purchasing a book but I try to have an open mind about what I may take from the book. That being said, here are my thoughts.

The leading lady was extremely relatable. I liked that she was in college because so many paranormal romance are of high schoolers or nearly middle aged adults. It made the story fresh. Even though the leading man happens to be of paranormal nature, he was not just

I wasn't sure what to expect going into this book. I got it as a promotional freebie on Amazon last week. I think having low expectations, I was really surprised at the quality of the story.



The mystery surrounding this book was excellent! I enjoyed trying to unravel the story and had a hard time putting it down. It wasn't until about 60% of the book was finished that the story unraveled and I was able to slow my pace.

Lia's life isn't what it seems. She is hiding a dangerous secret. People suspe

Recommends it for: PR Fans, UF Fans, Paranormal fans
It is actually more like a 3.5 but i didn't want to mark it down so i went with 4 stars.

Cover - I prefer the kindle cover to the paper back, i am not sure why though.
Favorite Line - "For someone who is supposed to be a knight in shining armor, you're acting like an ass in aluminum foil."
Favorite Character - Lia

I found the book interesting. The characters were likable & easy to read, the dialog between them was believable. Lia wasn't particularly weak or strong she is a mixture of both, she ha

When I first see this book I was very excited to read it, it has vampires, werewolves and magic what more could a girl want?
Unfortunately this book did nothing for me and I struggled to finish it. For me it took far too long to get into the story, it just went at such a slow pace that I got bored. By the time it started to pick up pace I was no longer interested what happened to the characters.
Will I be reading the rest of this series? Sadly no.

This is an amazing book. I fell in love with many of the characters at once. Christian, despises what he has become and feels he isn't worthy or love or even has the ability to love since he says he has no heart. Farthest from the truth, he has shown his love is totally unconditional for Adriala and would sacrifice everything for her. Adriala has had he world literally turned upside down and turned around but continues to grow and become stronger and stronger so that now she is truly something t ...more

This is one interesting story. I found it brilliantly detailed and gripping, with lots of twists and turns to keep it that way throughout too. My only little, tiny, tiny critisism was that Lia was a little bit "whiney". I did love Christians and Austins characters, they are very different and work well bouncing from each other. The writing style of chapter/character perspective really gives this story an extra element of deapth. Overall I really found myself enjoying the romance,friendhip,famiy ...more

Jesus... I read this book not so long ago, but today while organizing my kindle found it and wondered which book was this, so I opened it and sort of skimmed through it and still had no idea what it was about.
I have barely a few flashes of what I read, nothing really revealing, and I'm left wondering, just how good, or interesting, could it have been, if not too long after reading it I can't really recall its plot?

Wow, I'm sad this book is over! I feel like it took a while for the dialogue to hit its stride. Now that it finally has, the book ends very abruptly! I wish it had a real ending. It made me feel like I was missing something.

I had no idea what to expect from this book, but now I'm hooked. The plot is different, the characters relatable since Lia is in her mid-twenties. Christian is enigmatic and Austin quite funny.

I really love the story line. I couldn't read the book fast enough to find out what was going to happen. It is a different take for a paranormal book with a strong willed girl as the savor.

Page turner!

I enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

Pro: was a page turner with some great characters. I love the friendship btwn Christian and Austin. I also really love Pops and can't wait to learn more about him.

Con: I personally wasnt a fan of the pacing of some of Christian and Lia's parts. There were times I felt like maybe I had missed something but when I reread, I saw I didn't. It doesn't kill the book bc it's still a great read. It may even just be my o
